#606 Logo for fedora happiness packets
Opened 3 months ago by algogator. Modified a month ago


Hey @mleonova could you help me with this? I know you're busy but I really need this before FLOCK

@algogator lemme ask you some additional questions:

  • where exactly is the logo going to be used?
  • what sizes / shapes will you need?
  • what colors are preferable?
  • why do you want to change the icon you have right now / what's your dissatisfaction with it?
  • what exactly should the logo say?
  • are there any similar projects that you are aware of?
  • any specific visual you have in mind?
  • anything else you'd like the design team to know?

Thank you!

@algogator lemme ask you some additional questions:

where exactly is the logo going to be used?

On the website https://happinesspackets-stg.fedorainfracloud.org/

what sizes / shapes will you need?

Just 200 x 228 px for now

what colors are preferable?

I was going to say blue but I'm ok with anything from https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines#Colors

why do you want to change the icon you have right now / what's your dissatisfaction with it?

Trying to move away from http://happinesspackets.io/ and make it exclusively for Fedora

what exactly should the logo say?

Fedora Happiness Packets

are there any similar projects that you are aware of?

http://happinesspackets.io/

any specific visual you have in mind?

I have attached a screen shot of the logo in the previous comments

anything else you'd like the design team to know?

Would love to have this before FLOCK :)

Thank you, @algogator for your replies! Here's a quick update of the WIP. I'm sketching some ideas - one is the cupcake idea we discussed at the Design team meeting. Another could be a lollipop with a gradient of Fedora brand colors, and the third one is to make this happy 'packet' :)

I love the combination of the cupcake with the lollipop

@mleonova I think we'll be going with the cupcake or packet :)

@algogator soo.. I've been working with the cupcake idea and I'm putting it on the screenshot right away. I created a couple versions of the logo + icons to go on buttons.
Also please use Fedora approved fonts on the website: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Logo/UsageGuidelines#Fonts

@duffy how liberal cen we be with the Fedora logo? I would love to put it on a cupcake, but if that's not possible, I'd go for the smiley face + fedora bubble shape.

I'm open to suggestions.

Adding all icons together:

At this point I'm not sure we wnat to introduce another color.

@mleonova :heart_eyes: they look lovely, great job, thank you :smile:

@algogator I'm attaching the logo as is, since I assume you need it asap:

Let me know if you also need something for the button, too!

For the icons, I like the fedora cupcakes! 2,3 and 5

@algogator ok, cool! I like them, too :) But let me check with @duffy on whether we can go in that direction.

@algogator @jonatoni hey, what's the current status of the happiness packets site?

@mleonova re: the logo designs - the fedora logo versions you created are 100% OK IMO. My only critique here is in context, the 'fedora' is much louder than the 'happiness packets' - i think the script font makes the 'happiness packets' text extra quiet. The alignment in that left blue nav area looks a bit weird too in the screenshot and on the live website. (https://happinesspackets.fedorainfracloud.org/) Maybe a left alignment of the text would work better, and if the fedora logo is in the cupcake you could drop the upper right f attached to the logo type. that might help?

@algogator @jonatoni hey, what's the current status of the happiness packets site?

Hey @duffy I guess besides the logo and the badge design, we wanted general feedback on the site itself.

Blue not being an appropriate color for happiness packets and all :)
