Ok, I've been wanting to do this for a while...

Basically, when I look at the Kubuntu logo, the three "8-tooth" gears on the logo look like small snowflakes to me.

Example: http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/3527/kubuntulogo.jpg

Now... When looking at the KDE logo, I feel the gear is more "iconified" and less... well... complicated. For some reason I've always felt the KDE logo doesn't seem to be portrayed well by simply replacing the ubuntu circles with small gears.

Example: http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/8575/kde4logo.png

So, I did some work on the laptop using a live cd and Gimp. I've attached 9 mock-up logos hoping for feedback. Click the links below to see each mock-up.

Cheers.

P.S. I am a fan of Kubuntu and I do like the logo, just looking for some artistic opinions, and maybe some feedback. I own 2 Ubuntu and 1 Kubuntu shirt, so I do like the current logo as I proudly wear it on my back. :)

Sorry, they should be fixed now. I had some bad cross-linking going on there.

From me you'll get a thumbs up. I'm not using KUbuntu, but I have had a look at it as I'm not always happy with the hardware support (probably more a reckognition problem) in openSUSE.

I do see the point in creating a new logo: the current kubuntu logo is a bit "overloaded" for my opinion. In particular when you render it pretty small, the gears just look fiddly.

Your proposals look promising to me. As soon as you have a single image containing all variants, I will gladly comment on the different variants in particular.

An overview or an easier way to see all images at once would have been good.

Could'nt you upload it to Flickr or something similar?

Alternativly maybe a nice pdf / Impress presentation?
