I’ve read on ITT forums that new style foe maemo.org is ready to be criticised by the community and is looking for feedback. As I’m a web-designer aswell, I thought that my feedback would be good advice for maemo.org guys. But I’d like to mention that I’m not the ultimate truth of any kind so it’s just my humble opinion.
So, here are 8 various mistakes in maemo.org fresh style from my point of view.
Hello. First of all I’d like to thank all participants that submitted their logos to the contest. Some of them was really awesome, some of them were not (let’s be honest some of were real crap but who cares :D). But at last we have refreshed logo, made by Glaubert Oliveira
Though there is a rule that “winners are not judged” but I can’t not to say that I’m really surprised with that choice. And I really can explain why.
This logo is really awesome, Glaubert have done great job at visual interpreting of the ideas of the community but I can just describe what I see here. I can see “.org” part written in ordinary font somewhere under huge “maemo”. I guess this is a representation of actual community part in platform developing. I can see slightly modernized but basically same colors, which I guess represents inability to change. Also I don’t got how infinity cycle represents openess, and even meeting of minds. You know, tablets are sometimes falling into such loop if kernel is flashed incorrectly.
As for me, there is the only one winner: it’s Peres with “goggle guy”.
This is so fricking awesome that I just can’t find appropriate words :)
By the way, what was your number one in that contest?
