I really like the idea. Looks good.

But I think it might be against the contest rules to ad text other than joomla!

Ever thought of shading the "apple"?

I really like this design. I'm tossing up betwee the 3rd image in the first post and the image in the last post...

Could you make one that a little inbetween just for the sake of it ?  I realy like this image.. and it looks good as a favicon !!!!!

The only thing I would like to see is a varition on the font. Maybay choose something thats a little more stiking. The logo is out there, match the font.

Excuse for my bad English, but I don't understand the word "stiking". Can you explain in other words? Thx!

I like the idea behind this logo.

Some of the variations work, others do not but somewhere in here, there is a solid idea.

Effe8,

Can you do some others with all the corners of the "hand" a little round to make it more friendly?

I like the idea but I think the latest trys are to far away from the origional hand.

Well done so far,

I really quite like this.  It's not what I would judge to be the finished article as yet but there is definitely potential there.  Not being of an artistic disposition I can't just put my finger on what would finish it off.  Definitely a frontrunner IMHO.

Like the last two "hands" on the top row of your second post.

Keep up the good work.

I am not sure the graphic brings the 'hand' aspect into light, for me... but the idea of having it "in the palm of my hand" really does say a lot to me.

GREAT concept!

Thanks for the change.
I still find it a little agessive, like a claw.
Best one for me is the white first hand on top here, maybe you can try a turn also so the hand holds/supports the ball.

Just thinking here ;-)

I don't about you but this logo gives me the impression of totalitarism, dictatorship, "the hand of the big brother is on you" :D ... perhaps an open hand on the bottom of apple/ball works better... just an opinion.

I agree with Arno... would love to see it more like the first white hand, and although I think the current position is one showing strength, it might also be interesting to see the hand underneath the 'apple', supporting it.

I also keep coming back to this one...

Catch Communications already uses the red ball, but not with a hand I guess.

Why not flip the hand upside down? If you did this it would look like you are holding it gently in your palm, instead of crushing it from the top?

The supporting hand is definitely best!

The hand on top had a somewhat aggressive appearance; it resembles a fist too much. The supporting hand also has something of 'giving' besides 'supporting'.
I would love to see this logo with the 'official' font as well:
http://www.dafont.com/en/search.php?q=a ... asst=alpha
I'm not too fond of this font; it is not as 'friendly' as the hand/apple. A serif font is always more 'official' than a sans-serif font like the original Assenine font.

So, we see a supporting hand now, offering a ball/something.
Like this idea.

What about some other colors to see how that looks like?

I much like hte smoother version also.

But I personally not too fond of the supporting hand. I rather like the smoothed out version of the origional.

I don't fancy the hand either. I prefer the "iris type" logo as in here: http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic ... l#msg38753
