This topic is an open discussion, I'm in no hurry to make a decision ;)

Maybe you should make a new forum with a poll

I wouldn't do that now, as other users might still come up with new logos.

Good point

Maybe we should set the deadline near SFML2's official release

Do you like my Holyspirit's style SFML logo ?  :lol:




I test something in Cpl.Bator style :

Wow! It's good, but it definitely wouldn't be on the website xD

As for the real one, it's a little too bright. And the gears. THEM GEARS :twisted:

I really think that the Gregouar's logo is the best compromize (from Cpl.Bator) ! Simple, with green & blue colors, and very modern; Greg, you have my vote !

I think the second from Gregouar is nearly perfect, like David one, but it lacks of the identity SFML has with the current logo, maybe a fusion between them ?

I took some free and open icons, and try to improve the Gregouar's logo. This is the result :

Nice, I especially like the font's 3D lighting.

But I don't know whether the colors integrate well to the homepage. And some symbols probably need a higher resolution. Some should be replaced anyway (honestly, what kind of joystick is that? :D)

And what do you think about this one ?



I've just trying another color for the ellipse and the logo's site integration seems better. I let you judge by yourself : click here

Dunno, those icons look like they were placed on there without any love: Immense color contrast in that Crystal Clear network globe, Joystick seems totally out of place. Not sure what those gears are supposed to do there either. :P

Quote from: "David"
SFML:

In comparison, David's looks way "cuter" and has a clear comic-style theme, which fits a multimedia library more than that clean font. The only drawback are the aliased edges.

I see that every new logo is very similar to the original one. Don't hesitate to create new things, give SFML a new identity ;)

I have a joystick just like that to my right!  :lol:

A gamepad would be a better ident?
{much better code}
