Not bad Hai, not bad at all. I like the one with the version number. But I think that you can't use red as it goes against the requirements on colour. Check original post for the requirements.

Though the red looks perfekt for it.


Ah dammit, missed that. Fixed:

I think the logo could be slightly more colorized. Not too much, but a blue gear would probably look quite good (maybe you should try with different blue shades).

By the way, it's "simple fast multimedia library" ;)

I really like it. It's the most fitting so far in my opinion that is still a bit different from the current one. So try and get multimedia in there. Or remove the expansion of the abbreviation and go only with SFML.

Plus vi norder måste hålla ihopa ;)

It's pretty cool. What does it look like when integrated on the main page ? (http://www.sfml-dev.org/)
One small thing, though; what about removing the small screen ? Two screens one the logo seems too much, don't you think ?

Thought about that second screen too, but dont really know what to fill the gap with..  Experimented with RJ45 cables etc,  but that is what worked best. Also it looks empty with only the globe.

Preview with the logo on the current site(it the current design even will be used with it):

I love it a lot, but when integrated into the web page it looks a little cluttered at first sight.

Maybe smaller or perhaps more transparent icons?

This was just a quick paste, might do it more carefully later when i have time, and when I've seen laurent's reaction to it ;)
