All ideas considered, but our graphics specialists involved with the web development project will take away from that what best suits the overall look-and-feel of the new web presence.

We're back, enthusiastic and itching to get a new presence up by Easter!


I would suggest (it really does grow on you and is high energy like Puppy) the citrus cut theme used in 3.02 and Dingo by default + a button arrangement (CSS + javascript or php perhaps) based on the theme changer in Puppy which allows you to change the theme colouring Cool

Is this the one you mean?

Just thought I'd finally register here and put in my (probably very tiny) vote for this 3 image combo too. Keeping the reflection wherever possible would be a nice differentiation from other such icons too. If the page author is familiar with PNG alpha, could even have a nice blend on non-white backgrounds too.

If this ends up being selected (or is it already, I know his is a rather old thread?), could I ask for the same image but with a bit more contrast for a Puppy LightScribe template? Here's what I'm currently burning my various ISO images onto...

Barry, we only have the original image uploaded to the gallery by rasterpax. OTOH, I can easily cut it down to separate images and remove the reflections, no problem. The reflections are not part of the logo as I understand it.

My understanding is that the logo itself is really the stylised puppy face, independent of the background, plus the text if we wish as rasterpax supplied that separately on his original image. The simpler the better IMHO.

This has been chosen by the community as its preferred logo for Puppy, subject to Barry's approval of course. As long as the logo is used in accordance with Barry's conditions, I see no problem in uploading a copy in raw black & white.

Sub_title: Separate rastapax logo images
 

Here are the individual images supplied by rastapax, including an extra one supplied in response to some suggestions in the thread. The basic logo divorced from its background could be recoloured to suit the particular use. Obviously it would be no good in black on a black menu button, for example.

Personally, I'm in favour of a logo without any text.

Done! See how easy I am to get along with? Razz

I think the stylised puppy face is what we ought to treat as the logo. Any text, mirror effect, background, shadow, etc should only be added if the circumstances warrant that. In that way we would have maximum flexiblity in the logo's use - start button, trade mark identification, advertising button, web header, wallpaper hint, etc. What do you think?

Sub_title: looking sideways
 

The enthusiasm and creativity splurging from this long-running thread is truly inspiring, thanks everyone. For me, by far the most appealing image remains the old hand-drawn flop-eared pup-with-flower, and I'm a bit concerned that to date only 30 votes have shown up, suggesting maybe a minority view.

First - pure cynicism - if I were to add an entry to the Devil's Dictionary: Logo - a mythological artifice invoking the use of a unique image so widely used by PR vendors as a means of extracting large fees from gullible clients as to have become accepted by the proletariat as the norm.

Laying aside Received Wisdom I've never actually seen hard evidence of their value .... and me, well I experience real revulsion whenever I see the crooked banner image of a particular software house ... but the flop-eared pup still cheers me.

Second - the serious bit - some weeks ago MU commented elsewhere on possible problems for Muslims, and elicited a poignant response from one. Although I am in this sense a kaffir I gather that the Prophet - Peace be upon Him - is recorded as saying that angels would not enter a house in which there was a dog or a picture [He evidently spoke well of good deeds to dogs in trouble, nonetheless]. Hmm, double whammy? Could some Muslim puppylovers comment as to whether this is a serious issue or not?

Why does it matter? Well there are 6 billion of us, the 1 billion fatcats [growl] being largely saturated with a commercial OS and the other 5 billion out there ready to gasp fo an OS which will run well on kit we 'rich' think old or cheap but to them still means a huge investment. Right now Puppy stands supreme for this vast emergent 'market' and it would be a heck of a shame if the choice of a picture were to turn a billion prospective users from the joys of Puppy and into the hands of the, er, Evil One.

I believe the angle of tilt is important and prefer the above usage.

Islam

It is quite possible for those in Islam with a liberal attitude to produce
a Puppy image free version if they so wish
Just as it is possible for pagans to elevate the dogs importance

That's because in spanish we say "linux Puppy", rastapax is from Chile (I'm not 100% sure)

I agree - the proportion, tilt, etc. of Rasterpax' work shouldn't be changed. IMO and from a design perspective, his logo is very good. The proportion and scale are just right - those things should be maintained when reproducing the image.

Other ideas to come out of this thread work really well too. I played with WhoDo's EZpup last night. Vincent's head on the Start button in one of the themes works really well on a small round button - the black and white make it stand out.

Good stuff - thanks:D
