Nothing wrong with making suggestions or presenting ideas.
That's an opinion and it doesn't match mine. I feel that these suggestions are not helping with anything in any way. But knock yourself out, if it makes you happy. *shrug*

Any of the above are better than the current "LM" logo! :lol:

I suggest that they should pick a few by general agreement that they like best, and put it to the vote of the forum members. Then they don't need to use the exact stock image. They can use it as suggestions or inspiration for a final logo design.

Personally I think this should be closed down for spamming at this point but that's just my opinion. I'm sure there's thousands of stock graphics and photos of leaves out there, so I guess we'll be here a while. Maybe we could also post pictures of the letters LM in all posible fonts. *shrug* indeed.

Linux folks are good at tech, but hopeless at artistic talent. Your post proves my point. :(

As far as I know, there is already a chosen designer working on an actual new logo.

Good to hear. All designers need good ideas to work with. The more suggestions they get from different people, the more likely they are to come up with the best possible design. That is how all designers work. If you ask any professional designer to design a logo or something else for you, he/she will ask you for some suggestions. Then they will work on it and come up with several different ideas of their own, and ask you which ones you like best, and continue to work like that. I have had professional designers design things for me, and that is how they work. There is nothing wrong with presenting them with ideas.

Oh, but I'm just as good at google image search as you. Here, let me show you, I submit two Mint Leaf Beetles for your kind artistic consideration:

Silly post! My favorite image is probably this one:

And it doesn't need any "LM" written on it. Window's logo just looks like a "window". It doesn't need to have "W" written on it for people to figure out that is supposed to represent a window! :D

This one has something old and something new and lots of green. You might need to increase the height of your panel if using this as the Menu icon. :mrgreen:

Seems a good size. We should also make the animated Tux cursor for Mint (https://www.gnome-look.org/p/999807) the default to go with that: :lol:

The problem with that image is that by the time it is reduced in size to fit on the panel, there is little visible in it to associate it with "Mint". It may be a good generic logo for "Linux," but not a good logo for "Mint".

That's perfect! I tried to vote for that one, but couldn't find the polling booth. :cry:

Here is my second suggestion for a new Linux Mint start menu logo design. It is based on the VectorStock image shown. Nothing wrong with borrowing good ideas from other people, provided you give them due credit. Putting it on a dark background makes it look even better:

Good thing everybody doesn't think like that, or we would still be driving cars that look like these:
