Just an attempt at using Vincent as a potential logo. Any comments?

The reason I like the rastapax sans ears logo is that it is small, simple and friendly. Just like my favorite distro...

Anything photo-based can be neither as small (bitwise) or as simple.

Puppy, all bark and no bytes! Very Happy

It does not look like a logo. Maybe a portrait of a dog. Wink

It has been a long time since I distro-surfed so I was surprised to stumble
across a Web site that showed the gnome logo as a paw print.

Might be confusing for Puppy to also use a paw print?

imho, though there are some valid cons against the paw print, at this point it stills strikes the right balance of considerations.

1) it looks great and professional
2) has some history with puppy already
3) there is a possibility of color play with the logo eg grafpup
4) And on days when i feel like reading/looking deeper into the logo i can actually imagine a group of people gathering around in the paw print logo... reminds me of the puppy community Wink

I think that the puppy paw is perfect. I think we should try to avoid using the 'face' of a dog, I just don't think an OS with a cute dog's face on it is going to appeal to any serious users. The paw, on the other hand, it what I have on my taskbar - it's definately MY logo of choice. It's simple, professional, uncluttered, easily reproducable and instantly recognisable. And the other benefit of the Paw is that it looks great in any combination of colours. A green dog's face would just look, well, childish and odd.

That's just my opinion.

I really like the paw logo, as it has a kind of double message, like dasch pointed out. One the one hand its a puppy paw, & the other it is like a bunch of people together (representing the friendly community that PL has.) I really like this idea. On the other hand though, it isn't the most original of the logos in this topic, but I definitely think something professional, minimal yet striking would serve best.

Okay, the paw is my second favorite. Small footprint implied and all...

My 2c is the logo should be ~ loosely based on (but would be my first pick regardless..)the original chiwawa pooch named puppy, with or without the flower. Very Happy

I'd luuv to see some more submissions..

My daughter is quite the artsy fartsy type & I'm trying to get her to draw something up (have to talk to her right.. Laughing ) based on the original pix(s) & a few variants that have shown up already in this thread & the other one.

Sub_title: Another entrant ...?
 

The majority seem to prefer the rasterpax type of logo, but I'm still not happy with its look, so I tried to revamp it a little. What do you guys think?

maybe a crisp drop shadow behind the paw to make it jump out a bit?

or perhaps the same blur type as behind the text?

i think i like that one Smile

Very nice Warren Cool

I prefer the Puppy to the paw (paw is used a lot and we are not Paw Linux)

There was a time when the Puppy logo had red-eyes (what was he on?)


then he got cute


then we had


for example here

Puppy is a Puppy Very Happy
