# Talk:Logo

## My opinion

I don’t like any logo of the suggested.

This is not as bad as the rest: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/126293/polymath-v1.png VictorPorton 18:51, 28 April 2011 (UTC)

## Opinion

I particularly like the first logo to use the "Sigma" idea. It's simple and direct, but the Sigma conveys an interesting double message. I would perhaps like something a bit brighter, though.

How about something simple, involving mathematical characters? For example: http://tinyurl.com/3arb6wy I just whipped this up in word so it's more of an idea that someone with photoshop skills may wish to take further

I like this new suggestion from Russell: http://ixitol.com/PolyMath2.jpg. Not sure the black background works, but the bright and varied colours are great. It suggests variation, but with an ultimate cohesiveness. --WikiSysop 18:46, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Maybe combine the bright colours of http://ixitol.com/PolyMath2.jpg with the "Sigma" idea from http://cl.ly/3Y23180A1U2j3I0M2C1K.png? --WikiSysop 18:48, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Re "Maybe combine..."; That could work... perhaps send out a hi-rez 'sigma' image, to whomever is interested, for trying out various color schemes. -- Russell

I like Russell's latest design a lot: http://ixitol.com/PolyMath4.jpg. It's a simple, clean design, that still conveys the idea of many contributions. --WikiSysop 10:53, 14 May 2011 (UTC)

Author of "simple sigma" logo here. Sorry - didn't notice the discussion on here. I'll post a link to a vector version of the simple sigma logo and a brighter version in a bit. --IgorKofman

@IgorKofman - great, look forward to seeing it. --WikiSysop 14:14, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

I propose going with http://ixitol.com/PolyMath4.jpg. I'll wait a couple of days more for objections / alternate suggestions, and if none are made, I'll make that the logo. --WikiSysop 19:14, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

I'm also not wild about any of them, but I find it hard to say why. I think the best explanation I can think of is that they are insufficiently compact — they look more like words than logos. Maybe one could make a logo just out of a $\pi$ and a $\mu$. -- Gowers
