New Logo for CMSimple_XH

Post by cmb » Fri Nov 30, 2012 11:30 am

Hello Community,

IMO CMSimple_XH should have a new logo. This was already discussed in another thread, but ISTM this issue deserves an own thread.

The current logo is:

On one hand this might not have the best recognition value, and on the other it doesn't scale well to an iconized version of the logo.

So I want to encourage everybody to present his/her ideas for a new logo. It might be worth considering the logo of classic CMSimple (as used in the header of this board), but that's not strictly necessary.

Hey cool mate!

So ein neues Logo, wie es auch immer aussehen mag soll ja eine "Marke" werden.
Ich möchte zumindest einen Denkanstoß geben, das es ja viele Teilbereiche gibt, die ein solches Logo tragen könnten:

XH selbst, Forum, Plugins, Templates?!

Hallo!
Gert had advised me to think about the logo of CMSimple which I posted here in my post. He advised me to use the "_XH" within the CMSimple text. I haven thought about it before. But it makes a point probably. However, my understanding is that actually whatever new version would arose, whatever modification or fork, the roots are deep in CMSimple without any additinal markers. Just like mercedes doesn't change its star with each new version. The cars instead add additional names or version markers to their traditional logos.
Anyway, I thought about another approach - using some generall logo and reserve a space within it for additional numbers, markers, names etc.
Something like this (or whatever other main design shall be used):

Hi Tata,

thanks for your efforts, but I do not want to have a logo for CMSimple. CMSimple is a word mark, and does not need a logo.

If other CMSimple offshoots wants to have a logo, then the name of this offshoot should be clear visible in this logo.

So in the CMSimple_XH logo following should be visible undivided:

CMSimple_XH

Gert

PS: I believe this is also in the interest of CMSimple_XH.

And I think, that the future developers of CMSimple_XH also do not want, that CMSimple_XH will be confused with CMSimple.
