However, the logo is tilted about 30 degrees to the right--I'm not sure if that's acceptable or not. I think the concept could still work with the logo upright.
See the LXDE logo at the top of the forum page to see what I mean.


I know what you mean. The reason I tilted the LXDE bird is that, left alone, it expands the vertical space of the logo, and throws it completely off balance. The symmetry of the general Ubuntu logo is that it likes something to be at one of those three points. The bird only works at the outermost point.

It's not ideal.

Hi,

There is really nice artworks in this thread :)
Is somebody already pack some elements to have a complete theme for Lubuntu, like adding the logo + wallpaper + a icon set + etc ... ? Or maybe mockups like the honki one on page 8 ? It would be very interesting to have such examples to test it for real.

If you need some help to packaged it for example in a .deb package, please get in touch with me.

Also, if you want some help from Themes/Artwork gurus, you can have some informations from the Ubuntu Artwork Team (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/)

Somewhat off topic, I've always thought that including the bird in the LXDE logo was a mistake -- the bird's fine I have to say, it's just that it's not a substitute for an "X". It looks like an "A", leading me to think the LXDE project was the LADE project for some time. That should be seriously considered for change by the community in my humble opinion.

I've done an idea for a logo. LXDE is a simple lightweight desktop, and I feel the logo should reflect that.

The blue version of that logo is immense. Congratulations! I was worried that the Lubuntu logo was going to follow the pattern of Kubuntu whereby they just add their logo in place of the 'dots' around the circle. Your logo looks far more unique and definitive than that and much more striking than the xubuntu rat.

Hi,

very good, as always :)

you could fade the connection between the gras and the floor a bit more. I mean it should look more like the gras is grown out of the floor.

Nice wallpapers :)

Just for the reminder, Lubuntu is still searching for an official artwork. If you can provide a wallpaper + some choices for other piece of artwork, I'm sure the result will be very nice and possibly included in Lubuntu.
