Best of Proposed Mageia Logo

This reminds me of Chinese symbol

This has a feminine feel to it

I can’t help but think of the old Mandriva logo when I look a this one.

Mandriva, again!

This looks ok

mageialogo
Just ok

Light switch? Flip it on.

mageialogo4
Turn in on

This reminds me of a bearish candlestick trading pattern. It’s not a good sign.

A candlestick pattern?

I am sure there will be dozens more before an official logo is chosen. But while an official logo is required of any project or organization, what I am really looking forward to is something to test and review. Am I the only one?

  1. >both uber crap names

    I guess you are a crap specialist.

    The name Mageia byt itself is fantastic if you know what it means. And the fact that the name also ties in with the old imagery of Mandriva (which was a combination of the merger Mandrake/Connectiva which never work.) is a bonus.

    As for the visual aspect of Mageia it will be done by Nuno Pinheiro, of KDE fame and one of the best in his field.
    He added three images last week to the Mageia flickr feed and in the comment had linked to a few more. They werent only the logo but actually a whole banner and page outlook. The three images he had posted where variations of the same theme with different font colors.

    Seriously, who better to do the Mageia visuals than the guy who is responsible for many icons and themes and other visual of KDE4.x?

    Its like opening you own little restaurant and Thomas Keller says he wants to be your chef.

  2. I particularly like the “Magical” version, but I think there should be a gold Mandriva-like star either at the right end of the arch…or maybe at the top of the “burst.”

    Second choice is the “lunar event” logo.

    No matter which logo is chosen, I think the Mandriva star should be incorporated.

  3. Lunar one is nice and makes sense because of the Mandriva tie-in.

    The one you think lookes best is nice if you have a woman’s boutique, NOT for a logo.
    Too much, too fine detail which wont scale well and horrible font.

  5. I prefer the lunar one. Or if the red one is chosen, it should have another font.

  6. So you’re talking about a feminine hygiene product right? Why don’t they spend a few thousand on a real designer and pick a name and a logo that isn’t the gayest on the planet for a change. Mandriva to Mageia – both uber crap names – no wonder the company went belly up.

  7. I quite like the lunar one – if manages to visually acknowledge the distro’s Mandriva heritage without being too close.

  8. yeah the red one is def. the best
