Launchpad logo competition!

I love a good logo. The best find the simplest way to communicate a brand’s values.

Take a look at our very own Ubuntu logo, for a great example.

It’s recognisable whether it’s tiny or huge, black and white or in colour. With just three curves and three circles, it conveys Ubuntu’s commitment to community, humanity and cooperation.

Now, we – the Launchpad team – have been wondering if there might be a better logo for Launchpad. Whether it’s another interpretation of the rocket ship or something entirely different, we’re holding a competition to see what ideas other people have.

So, here are the details:

Closing date: 31 March 2008
Rules and all that: https://help.launchpad.net/logo
Prize: one of the snazzy new Ubuntu messenger bags.

You can submit as many entries as you like, although the competition isn’t open to Canonical staff or vendors. The Launchpad team will choose the winner by majority vote. If you want to see our current rocket logo in situ, take a look at the Launchpad project page.

Any questions? Find me (mrevell) in #launchpad on Freenode, leave a comment or send us a mail to feedback AT launchpad.net.
