Re: LOGO: The Jbird

Post by Casey Lee » Fri Sep 09, 2005 2:42 am

It's creative...I like it alot. You've got concept and talent on your side.

I haven't seen too many people play with the animal or mascot approach other than this one. I tried to find other anamals beginning with the letter "J" but alll I could come up with was:
  • Jackrabbit..uh no
  • Jaguar..maybe some fangs or running jag, but how would you not look like the car logo?
  • Jellyfish..Yeah, I'd like to see someone do a Joomla Jellyfish
Any other good J words???

I love the JBird too; but, bird does not start with "J". Just, y'know, in case we forgot.  :D (Unless somewhere we specified the breed of bird -- I haven't yet read it here.)

Jay
Any of various often crested birds of the genera Garrulus, Cyanocitta, Aphelocoma, and related genera within the family Corvidae, often having a loud, harsh call. Also called jaybird.

And I'm doing a bird logo myself, so I looked into it, and there are a few "jay" birds that come out of Africa.  Also, there is much to be said about animal symbolism depending on what culture you look at.

Maybe the bird's full name is Jay, or James, or Justin, or Jerry, but just "J" for short. :)

Hey, I really like this one. One of my favorites up to now.

Good artwork, resizable, look good as a favicon. Easy to print on t-shirts and coffee mugs.

Yeah, the bird might looks like landing. (Well the holy spirit is upon you ;-) )

What about a slight variation in shape. (i.E. the "head" a little more upwards.) Might as well give a little more "dynamic" feeling.

The Jbird is not as "cute" as Tux, but ... who cares.

Really ... brilliant job.
Keep on coding, keep it open.

I like it... just the font is too heavy... what about a version with another (light) font?  ;D

This is hands-down the best logo done so far. It's the only one that's made me sit back and not bother making one myself.

Beautiful work.

i have to agree on the avatar pic though.. the trademart on there makes it look like the bird is taking a poo... relocating it to the end of the name might be adviseable...

This is probably the best submision i've seen so far. don't take my opinion, i'm not the judge of anything here. just that can be recognised with ease without the joomla text and looks good.
my signature is undergoin rebranding, stay put and wait for it

This is getting a little rediculous.  I now have 4 different designs of my own, but I can't come to like them more than this damn bird  >:(  That a good and bad thing.  :::sigh::: back to the design :::sigh:::

Its been driving me NUTS.. I really like this logo, but for some reason there is a little something thats telling me its similar to something else that out there on the web. But right now I cannot place my fingure on it..

ARHHHHHHH !!!

It will come... eventually.

Tell me if you find it.
I have no idea which one it could be,  I wasn't inspired by an existing logo.

CLASSIC! You've totally awoken me (yeah up all night, for no good reason, not working, not playing) so I come to the joomla site and got caught up in all this great art and design.

Some may notice that I have made a comment or two throughout the logo section regarding moving the TM bug away from the end of the "a" in joomla cause in those designs its location there felt a bit off to me. In this case, however, I'd say that the "a" is looking a wee bit more sanitary!

Chuckles aside, fantastically beautiful stuff. You guys should wrap all this stuff up and sell it by the truckload!

Not sure what the image was in my sig file, but definitely not intended to be a rule breaker! Please forgive :)
