@pixelfed uh, and why didn't the logo with the most thumbs up https://github.com/dansup/pixelfed/issues/182#issuecomment-394402432 (68) win, but the one with just 48?
no answer is also an answer I guess
arf RIP pixelfed to me 😱
A logo is the main entry and should be representative of your product !!
your have too many colors, and it's not your color scheme for the website, so why ?
plus, having too many little elements isn't great for a logo...
and what mean Pixelfed when you see this logo ?
You might not like the logo but it actually makes sense and is representative to PixelFed.
Plus the website can still adopt the color scheme now the logo is settled :)
My avatar is for pride month i don't need every logo to use all of rainbow colors.
Anyway a website doesn't have to use EVERY color of its logo. (see http://www.msnbc.com/)
But it can. Here and there. Not all at the same place. Or use them as gradients.
Just because you don't see the P doesn't mean it's not there. + the speech bubble is axtually releveant (reference to the fediverse ?)
@daycode As @jared noted, the "P" in the logo also looking like a speech bubble is relevant to the social aspect of PixelFed, while the logo being reflective of both a camera shutter and a flower is relevant to the visual and image aspect. Sure the designer @marrkus would be happy to talk through his thought process developing the logo.
@daycode @jared @marrkus And of course not every colour from the logo has to be used in the site colour scheme, and there is precedent for rainbow coloured logos (Google, Picasa, MSNBC, for example). The designer did provide variations of the logo though to suit different contexts, see the original submission https://github.com/dansup/pixelfed/issues/182#issuecomment-396067684
Facebook, Google, Paypal e.t.c....
A good logo is easy to spot and original. I think the new one does that. It is of a good quality. The "p" could perhaps have been a bit better... but overall it is great looking.
