It is very suggestive and You've realized what I said in a previous post about your work. well done crash777 - I like it very much - the tree is the community - How did you make that? Is it difficult?

The most difficult part is trying to figure out what the design will be. After that, it is just being experienced in the graphic application of choice (mine happens to be Photoshop). I use layers to make all of the color choices and save as a jpg for the finished work. I work in 300 dpi documents so I can size up to a banner easily or down to web graphics easily as well.
Thanks!

Hey, I like this one much better than the previous tree.

Even looks good on a t-shirt.  :P ... and as a favicon.

Brilliant work and much different than anything I have seen here yet.

The tree as the community is a brilliant idea, the tree and the font fit together well.
And I like the colors, especially the first one.

Well done.

Definitely one of my favorites. Might even be my overal favorite.

Greetings.

Very nice, but you might consider simplifying the design a bit, to create this specific, kid's like feeling,
similarly to this style:
http://www.foood.net/more-icons.htm

We have to remember that we want to keep some of the features of *ambo. Some of them, like the interface and a simple logo made it really stand out agains the competition. Moreower, I know that *ambo is using foood's icons, so we might create something similar...
:D

Here's some info on the Baobab Tree that makes this even more appropriate:

[From http://www.strategicadventures.com]

The Baobab is said to be one of the "World Trees", or Tree of Life by many of the cultures on the African continent. The Baobab tree has an enormous trunk with tapering branches and can attain a maximum height of 75 feet and a maximum diameter of 60 feet around the trunk. It is able to survive long periods of time without water and is also one of the longest-lived trees in the world, being measured at over 2,000 years old. The Baobab is highly regarded by African people because all of its parts can be utilized. The many uses of the tree include grain storage, water reservoirs, shelter, food, burial chambers, timber, soap, fishnets, cords, sacks, clothing, rubber, glue, necklaces, and medicine. In addition to these uses, the tree serves as a meeting place for many villages to discuss community matters, relate the news of the day, or tell stories. In a similar way, the Baobab tree serves as a metaphor for Strategic Adventures. It paints a picture of high performing teams where each person is deeply regarded and the collective efforts of the team help to maximize potential. The Baobab tree also provides an image for how the experiences created by Strategic Adventures allow groups to come together, discuss matters of importance, share stories, and apply learning.

Nice idea.  So far this and the Meercat are my favorites!

Great work!

I really like the colors too.  It's very understated but has impact.  After reading about the Baobab tree it really fits with Joomla.  It's pretty unique.
