Whatever the logo I think it is important it can be "iconified" (ie. recognizable in a small square). I don't think we can shrink or crop any of the suggested logo so that when you see it in an icon you can say "Yeah this is the same, this is funtoo".

 

I also think that before trying to design a logo, we should find the values we want to highlight and instill through the logo. To me, funtoo is kind of a gentoo (the fastest penguin) but with fun too. So theses are the values I would highlight

 

  • fun and flexible (in contrast to straight): curves rather than straitght lines and angles
  • light and fast (gentoo): colors that evoke something fresh or smooth

I imagine a penguin sliding very fast on the belly or on skis. I think roughly the shape of the left penguin on the following picture would make a perfect logo.

happy_cute_funny_penguins_having_fun_pos

To me, this is funtoo.

As talked about in IRC, I suggest "Serge the llama" as Funtoo replacement of Gentoo's "Larry the cow". :P

 

If you don't know Serge the llama, then check this out.

 

PS: Moreover llamas can drive.

Instead of Serge, let's go with Cob (or Cud, or Cid), so while Gentoo's "Larry the Cow" has the name start with L and the noun start as C, we'll use "Cob the Llama" having the name start with C and the noun start with L.  The 3 and 5 letter word lengths would be preserved, but switched between noun and subject.

What about a flying penguin of a kind? I think that even people who are scared of heights wants to fly, and would think that it could be fun.

 

Maybe tux flying on the back of a Microsoft dragon (with butterfly wings)?

It does not matter much, but how 'bout a hairdo? Tux with a hairdo or even better, the cow with a hairdo. Old school hairdo is a must. Back in the days, there were all around hairstyles like those screaming for party in the back but pretty much office in the front. An all party hairdo won't be that hard to imagine. And in a lesser way, it must represent the funniest hairdo drobbins had over the years. One on top of the other, the ufo, znurt I guess they call it and the cow abduction scene in its all expended splendor resembles funtoo much more than a penguin. Sure, things could degenerate fast, Znurt with disco lights much? But if there is style and some iconic aura to it, the "fun" part should give a pretty much decent, "in its place" sensation. Decent? I had to add it.

 

I know I shouldn't be reply to olds posts ... my apologies, but ... are you saying Tux with a mullet?  Business in the front, party in the back?

FYI - There is already a Llamasoft.  Author of Llamatron, Jeff Minter (aka Yak) writes under the name and there is a corporate entity of the name.  Besides, Disney might sue.

How about something similar to this one.. pacman eats the gentoo logo and becomes the fun version of it? ;)

I like pytony's sliding penguins. I think that conveys the right feeling. I was also wondering if some tip of the hat to Beastie (FreeBSD's mascot) might be in order since Portage was inspired by the BSD ports system. Also, though this might be a bit of a different topic, I think it's related. Since fbsplash/splashutils is no longer maintained and hasn't been updated in about 3 years, and the only somewhat viable alternative is Plymouth, maybe Funtoo could either come up with it's own bootsplash manager or fork fbsplash and update it. A cool logo isn't enough if there isn't a reliable way to display it. And once we do have a good logo, maybe a kernel patch could be used to put the Funtoo logo instead of the default Linux logo on the standard framebuffer boot screen.

The sliding penguins are definately cool, although it doesn't convey a single "mascot" to rally behind.  Here is the closest I could find on Tux Factory: http://tux.crystalxp...now-boy-v2.html   Although I didn't spend a lot of time searching.

 

Can anyone compare/contract fbsplash with Plymouth?  Is plymouth safe to use with hardened?  I know fbsplash will keep the console pretty after boot finishes and plymouth doesn't, but if it won't work on hardened I think its kinda pointless.  The way I look at it, most people using desktops will never see the consoles.  Most people running servers will probably find the graphics distracting or are running hardened and can't run it.  I think the people that want a fancy console will be the minority (and those guy can probably install fbsplash themselves).  That said, gentoo has info on how to install either one.

 

Is genkernel-next required to use plymouth?  I'm not sure what benefits genkernel-next gives me and I installed genkernel already.  Would I need to switch to install plymouth?

Riccardo Messana (@morphmex), I liked this logo:

Late reaction, but I'd like to say that I really like this one! :)

 

I'm just asking myself what a 80x80 Logo or similar sizes may look like - Since this is some kind of horizontal and wide it will loose a lot of it's attraction when scaled down that much  :unsure:

The "too" part of this logo makes me think about a mask and a snorkel. Maybe we could find something cool fun with this to draw a square logo.

 

Dive into Funtoo :P

I haven't seen a logo I liked yet.  I'm no artist, but how about something simple and classy.  Maybe just a penguin in the shape of the letter "f".  The top of the f could be the head and neck,  and the horizontal cross could be the wings.

Agreed with the @j-g- choice.

And since you asked above, 80x80:

80x80 png (actually 96x36 or something, but close enough.)

I don't think the point was actually to get a 80x80 logo, but a squared logo (ie. that can be used as a favicon or any squared icon).
