#248 Request up / down vote on new Fedora logo design
Closed: approved 10 months ago by mattdm. Opened 10 months ago by duffy.

At the Wednesday, March 20th council meeting [1] I presented two final candidates for the new Fedora logo. Based on the feedback of that meeting I would like to propose a final logo design and request that the council hold a up / down vote on it:


Do note that voting thumbs up on this does not exclude any additional fixes / adjustments / tweaks that we identify as being needed, as we break in the design.


  1. Council Meeting Video:

  2. Design Team Ticket for Logo Work

  3. Blog Posts about Logo redesign

Next Steps:

If the logo redesign is approved, then some next steps:

  1. I will open up a ticket with mindshare to put together & execute a communications plan around the new logo

  2. I will open tickets and help organize new swag designs for the upcoming new contributor packet for active contributors

  3. Myself and Matthew will kick off the process to figure out how our trademark needs to be adjusted.

  4. I will open up a ticket for creating a basic set of logo usage guidelines for legal approval using the new logo.


Since this is a trademark change, let's go for a full vote with a deadline of a week from today. (Need three +1s, no unresolved -1s.)

I am not aware of the "upcoming new contributor packet for active contributors" Where is this being discussed?

@bex @mattdm mentioned that during the call, towards the end when we discussed next steps. thats all i know about it

@bex I didn't mean new contributors, I meant active ones. I may have mispoken on the call.

+1 & @duffy my wife wants you to know she immediately got the tilt to the "e" :)

ohhh sorry it's ambiguous i wrote a new contributor packet w the new applying to the packet not the contribs

@pbrobinson The asymmetry issue is noted https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kuMUwENsHK0&t=180 (basically: 6 out of 7 are covered).

Okay — I count 7 +1s and no -1s. Peter and Dennis, your concerns about it not solving all of the problems are noted. I think it's definitely a step forward and fits well within the "evolutionary not total rethink" approach I asked for.

what is the state of this? would love to see the new logo materialize in fedora!

@lorbus we're on hold until the next budget cycle.


This logo doesn't look good. Not even remotely as the old one. I hope this won't be finalized. There were better designs than this too, but this is quite bad. Like the f has got a bear belly or pregnant.

I prefer the old one.

@irofedora are you on the council? this was a council vote. it is over 4 months ago now and approved as can be seen plainly in the issue history. It is a shame the decision disappoints you, but major changes like this are always difficult at first and with a bit of time and context make more sense.
