Tips - By coscooper in the OSM forum
- Who's the logo/slogan for? Your group and the core dev environment vs the customer (End users who deploy your solution).
- Logo/slogan must convey purpose and spell out your message & be distinguishable (Kind of like your name.
- Must look good as tag line on web site for users.
- Must look good in different color spaces for screen & print(CMYK vs RGB).
- Must look good on a t-shirt (trade-shows and fundraising.
- Can be used as a favicon
- Must Scale up/down depending on use, since most of us use the core tech for other purpose and only drop a logo/copyright etc. at the bottom, it must scale small.
