LOGO: Joomla! Smile

Postby Oskr » Sun Sep 11, 2005 10:05 am

Hi, here you are! This is my first logo made for Joomla!.
It represents a Wolrd smile, universal smile.
All of us must be happy with this new OpenSourceMatters community and the new Joomla! baby.
This baby mus live under a Smile and Peace, so... I've thoguht a simple smile, is the perfect icon and logo for Joomla!.
I hope you like it and recieve the message in it.
Thnaks for be here Joomla! and thanks to Joomla! community too.

pd. finally say this smile is easy to change the colors and could be a good reason that every local site has this own colors (flag maybe?) All of this logo is the first step to an universal logo, i hope.

pd2. 2 options, with slogan or without it.

Isn't the wink wrong though? ; )...  if you rotate the semi-colon, the 'tail' should go off to the left, or right ( ;  not down as it is in the logo.  But other than that it looks nice.

Hi whitefalls!
Thanks for the comment.
The icon represents a face with two eyes (one wink) and a motuh with a smile.
Is not exactly a  ; )  is a smile with a wink for this fresh, friendly, universal and happy community under Joomla! and with a strong font based on the users cohesion to make Joomla! best than ever.

I'm happy that you like so much.

Thanks

I like this one, simple, universal, don't need to worry about being understood...

The only thing is should Joomla be represented by an emoticon like image..?
In other words, do we want to push the joomla concept beyond a computer based
idea/software or are we happy with it being seen as just that?

To me, Joomla is much more than just a piece of software, it is an community [dare we
say worldwide] effort to make the best, simple-to-use Content Management System
out there...

Maybe I'm seeing too much into things, no matter what love the clever idea...

Rating: 82/100.

Sincerely,

Emmanuel Lemor

Thanks exlemor for your rating and thanks too for your comments.

I think Joomla! "is not only software" because an OpenSource Software without a community like this is not a good open source soft, or may be as not good as Joomla! is.

Thanks and all of we must be happy with a wink and smile, like Joomla! community.

Hmmmm.. Interesting... So simple, yet so effective.

I too am wondering if Joomla should be represented by an emoticon. But If I dismiss that thought, then I truley like the design.

Thanks ozlawsy, i'm happy that you like so much the idea and the logo.
I think icon "is not only an emoticon", is more than that in my point of view. It represents lots of things and all of them universal and powerful.
Thanks again ozlawsy!

I do like this one.  There's something that jars a bit about the font, but the icon is just great, confident, cheeky - I think it's good for the community and usable in a more corporate enviroment.  Nice work

Hi Oskr I need to tell you, this is one of my favourites.

Simple, clean, easy read. The emoticon idea seems to be obvious, and at first time some people may thing this is not good.

I dont think so, If emoticon is a "universal web sign", why not to associate with Joomla! ? Its good to Joomla!.

About design, I think the forms are spread a little. Mybe a more compact group, try to reduce the spaces between "." and ","
after this reduce all icon to fit at lettering size.

Edit the "J" to remove the right top serif to mach with "l" top serif - do you got it?

Hugs

Luciano

Hi Luciano, very thank you for your words!

I'm happy to read this, happy to see Joomla! Smile logo is universal and you like it so much.
About details you've commented, I'll think about it, perhaps I can try it on  in the next contest! ; )

-------

Finally say thanks to all people who participated, all people who wrote about evey logo submitted and it's incredible how many logos were submitted in the last 3 houres, fantastic!!!

Joomla! it's not a baby, was a baby last week... in one week it's not the same baby (ex: 5000 users in this forums, incredible!), and every day this community let's Joomla! and help it to grow up!!

Thanks again and regards for every body!

Good luck.
