Joining the Design project and new lxde logo

Post by MYK11 »

Hi, I'm MYK, a designer interested in UX, logos, branding and general work to do with LXDE. I would like to get my name on the wiki

Anyway I have designed a new logo for LXDE, I've seen many suggestions already. To future proof the design and make it modern, instead of going completely off topic, a position change with a bit of depth with a layer and type is all that's necessary to make this logo beautiful and of higher quality compared to KDE, Gnome 3 and XFCE. Something best served in colour, but equally fine in black and white, and greyscale. I am not sure how to get this proposed as the official logo, but I would love to contribute properly, but I think the mailing list is down atm?

Welcome to the LXDE forums. I have deleted your email address for your protection. Developers rarely if ever visit these forums. I just checked https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxde/lists/lxde-list and https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxde/lists/lxde-list and both seem to be operational. Recommend that you try again.

that looks really nice, but i must admit i never really liked the swallow. too pointy, doesn't look good in small sizes.
mayeb you can come up with some new shape altogether.
also consider LxQt.
