graphic arts help needed

Steve Marquess-3
We recently signed up our first ever Platinum sponsor (Nokia). One of
the things we promised in return for that sponsorship was an "OpenSSL
supporter" logo for their use. We don't have one and have never needed
one before, now we do.

If there are any artistically gifted volunteers who would like to see
their creative genius immortalized in cyberspace, please drop me a line.

I'm thinking of some sort of variation of our current logo,
http://opensslfoundation.com/data/logo/openssl-logo.png, with "Platinum
sponsor" lettering added. But, "looks good" is the only hard requirement :-)

I have a PSD file of that logo too, but not the skill to use it.

I would be happy to do so and I sure there are several others who would as well.

Do you have a specific upload location that you would like submissions to go?

I have two volunteers already (in just minutes!) so I don't want to
waste your time duplicating effort.

I will make a note though just in case those first two don't work out
for any reason.

Thanks,

Maybe there can be multiple entries, and have Nokia, you or the mailing list decide which they like.

Kind regards,

Re: graphic arts help needed

Jeroen de Neef
I also have a few questions.

Are these volunteers allowed to display the work on their site and claim that they made it?

I am also asking what you are willing to give these designers for a professional logo, because I know a guy that could make one for a bit of money.
Maybe you can make a prize for the chosen logo.

Kind regards,

Jeroen de Neef

Well, that's fine but it wasn't really my intention to create a contest
and ask people to contribute labor that wouldn't be used.

But if we do get a choice of several I will ask the sponsor, the team,
and possibly others for an opinion. We certainly don't want to depend on
my artistic judgment!

For "a bit of money" we could do many things :-), which is why I asked
for volunteers willing to bask in the warm glow of accomplishment and
gratitude in lieu of any tangible remuneration.

      So what? Other groups -- CentOS and Ubuntu come to mind -- do
that. Competition is not bad; it can be very fun. And if you
(permanently) place the contenders' artwork somewhere online, they
will all get something back. They will be able to say -- and show --
they were in this contest. That is really the best you can do for all
participants IMHO.

      And this is why I suggested a permanent location for all the
entries. Each volunteer would then be able to link it to, say,
openssl.org/artwork/competition/2014/, and say "hey, I was there! I
did that"

      Going back to what I mentioned earlier, I *think* (scary verb
this is) most of the artwork used in, say, ubuntu is all donated by
the community down to icons and wallpapers.

Re: graphic arts help needed

Stacy Devino
A contest is good. It gives you many options and personally, when I do logo design and such even internally, I do many incarnations to give maximum choice to my own brain. Sometimes even you don't know what you like best. 

You may want to also consider a new logo for OpenSSL that's a bit more modern and representative of what you guys do. 

Any bonus points for doing it all in GIMP or Inkscape? 

Funny enough... that's all I use now even though I have CS for interacting with what other people have done.

Re: graphic arts help needed

I had the same idea, what about designing a new logo with this new sponsor?
To begin a new era for OpenSSL, one where people donate more and OpenSSL will have more full time devs.

Yes, extra bonus points for open source tools :-)

Hey Steve & all,

Here's a link to a couple of ideas:

1) https://app.box.com/s/151g7a1dw186fmvx9t7z
2) https://app.box.com/s/t4wi69rojy6tcom4dqm3

(The link is to Box; tons more space & more open-source friendly than
Dropbox, but I’ll upload to the latter if people prefer). I tried to
send them over Gmail but hit the size limit; I can always compress them
but I'd rather share them in as high a quality & resolution as possible.
It’s probably worth downloading the images and using your native png
viewer to view them - they don’t go particularly well with the standard
Box dark grey viewer background.

Haven't differed massively from the current design, but have tweaked it
a little. I've also left transparent backgrounds on the png files so you
can apply it over anything to see how it looks.

The typography is modified Clear Sans, which is an open-source font
under the Apache License (https://01.org/clear-sans).

The logos are pretty similar, except the 'Platinum Sponsor' lettering is
designed to stand out more than the standard one, and the Platinum
Sponsor font is shaded in the colour platinum rather than the soft grey
I used for the standard lettering.

If you want the PSD files to toy around with, let me know and I'll send
those over as well.

If these are completely rubbish, feel free to say so! Won't take any
offense at all.

Re: graphic arts help needed

Hello guys

Saw this and I wanted to throw my hat in the box too.

taking Dom’s box.com suggestions, here’s my idea:
https://app.box.com/s/2hgac5iy2ny1e9t21gpe

Fonts: Libre Baskerville & Open Sans  
Icons: http://glyphicons.com/license
I own a Pro License, but the Free one is CC BY 3.0

The Idea:  

1.  Use icons that people are already familiar with.  
    I’m using Home and Lock icons which regular people should
    recognize from their experiences with the browser bar
    lock icon for secure sites, and the home icon a lot of
    websites use to indicate “home”
2.  Libre Baskerville for the “OpenSSL” part, as a serif font
    just looks and feels more official.
3.  Home, Company, etc indicator icons on top of the “O” in
    Open SSL. The “O” looks like the world, and we’re sitting
    on top of it, with a lock icon to indicate it’s secure.
4.  Added levels of support add extra “+”
    A subtle way of saying “we’re extra plus-y”
5.  In grayscale, the logo will look the same
    For the color blind, the SSL should still come through as
    different. There’s plenty of contrast for grayscale too.
6.  Creates the possibility of a smaller 32x64 icon when space
    is at a premium. Also makes for nice stickers.

Feel free to do whatever you want with it!

-Phong

Man, I really like to look at all these logos.
Phong, can you make the images bigger? Because the resolution is quite small.

Hello Steve,

Just for fun :
And what about these two (attached) logos,
one for those who donate a little and the other for those who donate a lot ?

Ha, those made me smile. I will pass those on, but I've just received
feedback from the prospective user of our first "OpenSSL Sponsor" logo
and they chose this one:


http://opensslfoundation.com/testing/data/openssl-platinum-sponsor-logo.jpg

from JAaron Anderson.

Thanks to everyone who sent a logo. I was thrilled to have so many choices.
