Do we have permission to use it?
Of course. I may even upload source (.max file) if it is needed. Also I`d like to improve it, but I need your fresh ideas. Smile

I like the letters a lot. And I generally like fireballs too. Smile
I'm just scratching my head what does the fireball have with U++ and what kind of message is sending it to the viewer.
So while from visual point of view I quite like it, I just wonder whether it's possible to do something similar with more appropriate symbol. But I have no idea for a good new symbol.
I read it`s message as "U++ is quick and cute as fireball." Not bad, IMO.

Speaking about the formula 1, I mean something like this here.

Only... I wanted to sort of "depracete" 'ultimate' word. Going for plain 'U' only.

Well, I have made more modifications to TheIDE splashscreen - check tomorrow. To me, it feels quit fresh Smile

Maybe we should change the logo more often...

I assumed that would be interesting to display the logo, not only in splashscreen. It would be interesting to print the logo in any printed documentation.

Also first page should contain a short description of project and news updated daily or weekly about the project, new releases, community announcements and so on.



That sounds good and nice, but please note that nobody volunteered to take care about freshmeat annoucements yet.

I too would like to have more actual frontpage content, but there must be somebody that manages it. I am failing at that task..

In any case, great plans are nice, but I would rather approached this whole PR issue step by step. I believe that the most critical issue right now is to start regular freshmeat updates.

Here I am with a third version of U++ logo. I`ve spent some time thinking what could illustrate U++ (this thought was on the background for some time). And finally it came - yep, the horseshoe. A custom one, hand-made and unique.
Just to illustrate an idea...

Actually, I am now thinking that with increased rate of releases, we could update logo much more often.

E.g. the same way how Google does it.

Hello all

I think that it is true that Google plays changing its logo but it is also true that they always play with the same basic shape.
I think that to maintain a clear logo is always good, as the logo is an important part of the project identity. A robust logo is part of a robust project.

I do not have a clear opinion about the shape of a logo, I am not an aesthetic specialist, but it is really great the job that you are doing.

About other efforts I am opened to help. Luzr has talked about freshmeat announcements. I do not know how it is done, but if somebody can explain it to me, or there is another thing to do, I would like to "put my shoulder to the wheel".

Best regards
Koldo

Agreed. I`m searching optimal U++ logo solution. And it is just 3rd approach, not a 3rd logo itself. May be well designed and styled (not a sample above) horseshoe will become a shiny new U++ logo one day. As soon as I make (a-kind-of) final version, it will be better to ask U++ authors what do they think about it. For now I`m interested mostly in the direction of thinking - what everyone think about horseshoe-logo idea itself.

BTW, maybe we should get some sort of "Developed with U++" logo too...

Yes why not. This logo could have inclosed the U++ logo.

Yes, it would be good. But IMO it is the second step after making final version of logo itself.
Currently I`d like to contribute more finalized and "appropriate" version of horseshoe-idea, but just have no time for this as I`m on detached service for week or more.

OK, another one iteration towards logo. I wonder if it is right direction I`m moving. Please give any feedback you want (horseshoe idea, it`s realization - whether it is better than magnet or not), especially critics, as it is vital to know - deny this solution or keep it and make some polishing.
