OK, here's a few more, I'm trying to steer away from all the dark grey - I've already done plenty like that! Two of these are JPEGs - I've got better quality PNGs if anyone wants them - but because they're 1600x1200, they're both about 1Mb.

What else is there to design? I've done a Gnome splash, a GDM theme and a few wallpapers. Any more ideas guys?

Thanks molom, I'm glad it's liked. When I first made it I wasn't sure about it, but it's really grown on me! Here's the logo in a transparent PNG - it's pretty big so can be scaled down if needed...

I know it looks kind of weird (and stranger still if you click it) but if you open it in GIMP you'll see the transparency.

Thanks,
Phill

Phill: I really liked the twirl. :) Nice idea, but it could be a bit crisper. I spy a pixel in my eye. But I did not like the logo. It's too much on the same time and confusing and messy, IMO.

Fair enough. Since someone said something about the name possibly changing (esp. removing the 'linux' bit), I was trying to experiment a bit. I've put together another wallpaper as I don't seem to be able to stop myself making them. This one's back to grey, although I've tried to lighten it up a bit. A slightly different logo too...

to be frank, i vote for this to be the official logo of Mint Debian. however, i think it needs some polish to make it look minty..putting shades of green on Mint makes it better, IMO.

Your logo takes away the debianess, while the older logo takes away the Mintiness! I don't know which one to choose :cry: :? :D

im confused. In what way does zwopper revised logo take away the debianess? how could it be when it has the debian trademark all over it...

Anyone has the time to put the Mint symbol beside the revised logo Zwopper made? i think we should not abandon the LM-symbol, IMO...let's see if they fit well together...one suggestion though, alter the symbol's color combination a bit to go with the dark pattern Zwopper made...

Just a quick and dirty one...
I will make a cleaner, crisper, not so compressed version if it gets approval.

Although I like the black version, this half-black/half-green logo I don't really like; it's not quite slick enough to match the rest of LM's artwork. It's not the quality - it's the colours.

I also think it looks good in mint-green, as per the Gnome splash I did earlier (and not just because I did it!) :(

I just think the green kills the debian look, because debian logo feels more darkish than a nice green, while the black letters from the older logo kills the mintiness. Thats all.

hahaha, looks neat and pleasing IMO. excellent bro! :D i tried to picture out in my mind the one you made first, i thought it looked very ugly. this one is just simply beautiful!i hope Ede will comment bout this since he's the origianl designer. he mentioned about being simplistic when it comes to making a logo, don't know if this fits his standards...

for me it doesn't matter whether or not it fits the rest of LM's artwork. i mean, we don't have a choice IMO except we drop Ede's design as a base and make another one. Ede's design is patterned with dark colors and i think we have to follow that so the logo will have consistency in its look color-wise...and in the first place, the sort of pink color of the debian twirl looks lost in the original Linux Mint logo color pattern. so i guess, we should alter it a bit so that all will fit together...am i right?
