@eugen-b I was thinking if Manjaro is to get a new logo, it probably should be something that is distinctly Manjaro. But it would still be nice to pay homage to Manjaro's father distro.

Anyway, I'll work on it tomorrow.

I was thinking the same, but didn't want to interfere.

I'm off to sleep now, and I get struck by inspiration the most right before I fall asleep. If I remember anything in the morning, I might come up with something better  :D

Hi all,

Here are my first drafts. I've used the font "Voltaire" from Google fonts, with a tiny personal touch ("A") and tried to reflect the concept of Manjaro with a simple typographic approach: modern, clean, fast, (the balance between) bleeding-edge and stable. These are what spring to my mind immediately when I think of "Manjaro". The triangle at the back is, needless to say, loosely supposed to imply the mountain Kilimanjaro, also in the second one of the first row, an attempt to pay homage to Arch linux.

Keep the old one.; It's perfect. Also, it's just beginning to be recognised - it's a gimping move to change it now.

I really agree with this, but I also see the resemblance with the A.I.R flier as a problem.

However, since Manjaro really deserves a good, recognisable logo, I think that it is bonkers to ask for a design in a week!

Good logos take time, so I would allow for at least a month. As it the dealine is now, I won't have any time to do anything even though I really would like to help!

As a long time Manjaro user, I would like a single color in the logo, the way we have it currently. It's just my opinion, but would like to see Manjaro growing :)
Is it just me or someone out there also thinks the text font in the Logo is a bit too curvy and think?

I also loved the mountain peak designed logo

I actually like it for that quality, it goes against the neo-grotesques you see EVERYWHERE these days. The letter-spacing however is just plain bad and should be fixed.
