Eben: I like your logo idea. It's simple and neutral and plays well with the sugar look and feel. I think that we could go with blue for the main color. A weakness of that design could be that it looks like s ugar, as if "ugar" was a word in itself. Can you also make a version with the words "sugar labs" in it? --[[User:Simon|Simon]] 13:11, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

:Yeah, I feel like playing into the simple stroke/fill visual style is a good way to go, since that in itself is part of Sugar's identity.  I agree with your comment regarding the kerning between the 's' and the 'ugar', but played with a number of possibilities and didn't find any I liked better.  Feel free to glance at my [[Media:Logo_sketches.eben.jpg|sketches]] for insight into my process, and potentially food for further discussion.  I feel that the "sugar cube" logo needs the 's' when it's used alone, but perhaps we could pull the 's' out of the cube for the logotype version.  Also, I was aiming to find an identity of Sugar itself; do we need a "Sugar Labs" logo independent of that?  Could we license the Sugar logo under CC and simply use a logotype with "labs" appended, perhaps in a lighter gray? -[[User:Eben|Eben]]

:"Labs" could just be a little word beneath "sugar". As for the kerning problem, I don't know yet how to best solve that. Do you mind putting the source file (SVG?, AI?, EPS?) online, so I can play with it a bit? --[[User:Simon|Simon]] 18:34, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

We shouldn't change the Sugar icon. It is the central metaphor for the child on the XO and it works well w/ the other icons in the mesh view. I have changed the main XO icon on my XO to the OLE Nepal logo and then changed it back because it made the mesh view absolutely confusing. BryanWB 04:29, 10 May 2008 (UTC)

Right. I think that, regardless of what we chose as a logo for Sugar as an OS, it's critical to retain the XO representation for the people within the UI, at least by default. -Eben

Yeah, I feel like playing into the simple stroke/fill visual style is a good way to go, since that in itself is part of Sugar's identity. I agree with your comment regarding the kerning between the 's' and the 'ugar', but played with a number of possibilities and didn't find any I liked better. Feel free to glance at my sketches for insight into my process, and potentially food for further discussion. I feel that the "sugar cube" logo needs the 's' when it's used alone, but perhaps we could pull the 's' out of the cube for the logotype version. Also, I was aiming to find an identity of Sugar itself; do we need a "Sugar Labs" logo independent of that? Could we license the Sugar logo under CC and simply use a logotype with "labs" appended, perhaps in a lighter gray? -Eben
