I absolutely love them, especially the first one. Very, very elegant!

I really like the new logo, and since I have been doing most of my stuff in Inkscape lately I made an SVG of the new logo.

Zip file contains SVG & PNG files

The SVG also has a glossy variation I made. The zip also contains a PNG of the variation.

Can we please make Jernau's logo the new official logo? I like the old logo, but this is clean, simple and so very good. :D

Thanks again for all the nice comments - you guys really know how to make someone feel appreciated. :D

I haven't used Linux Mint on a normal aspect-ratio screen, but I was under the impression that the various options in the 'Desktop Background' dialog, such as 'Center' and 'Zoom', would give the desired result. Is that not the case? Does the logo become distorted?

Thanks, you've done a great job. :)

I do like the new logo idea, i cant quite decide yet if i prefer it over the current one but its a damn good shot! I do think the wallpapers are a tad on the basic side, if a light flare was added behind the new logo (the same as on carbon) then i think id prefer it. ...i dont mean to be critical of it, im just being REALLY picky here :P

Oh and props to akaNed for the svg! bravo :D

I totally understand what you mean, but in my defence I was especially shooting for 'clean, simple and elegant' as part of the design concept for these initial wallpapers. The aim was purely to display the logo, without too many other distractions, so that people could decide if they liked it more than the current official logo. Thanks for your feedback though, I appreciate it.

People are making very good use of this style of logo. I see some very attractive wallpapers being designed with it. The logo has a very clean look and it's not, in your face so to speak. The logo definitely says elegance. The logo has a crisp, clean style and I look forward to seeing more wallpapers making use of it.

I think a subtle flair would be nice, but I really like the simplicity of these. And being critical is what pushes us all to create better artwork.

Thank you :wink: I hope it's useful to someone.

the one you called "syslinux-splash:" would be the one I would like to see as a desktop. You have made a desktop similar to syslinux-splash but the bar at the bottom spoils it for me. (sorry, it's only a minor point).

All nice, very good stuff! :)

Feel free to make your own wallpaper using the new logo - that's the beauty of the Creative Commons license. :D

A new wallpaper:

This one hopefully shows that the logo also works black-on-white.

Two million blades; all of them pointing to the fact that the grass definitely is greener on the Linux Mint side... ;)

Love the graphite button - more professional looking than the current - IMHO
This with a progress bar in green below "elegance" line would make a great start up for Felicia.

Very nice as always Jernau, its great to see that the art as a whole on these forums is getting a far more professional feel, especially with your new logo!

Thanks sputty01. :)

It will be interesting to hear what Clem has to say about the new logo. My guess is that when Clem asked for proposals for Mint 6, it was just a cohesive theme he was looking for and not a new logo... but we shall see. ;)

Cool!
The only minor gripe I have with this is that the leaf on the ball "front and center" feels a little off somehow,
I can't really put my finger on it, but it's something that draws my attention to it all the time.

it looks to have been added. the leaf on that ball would have been 3d, glowing and blurred like the other balls. the one added (i guess for sharpness) does not curve around the ball.

It's lovely though.
