Ok, so I had an idea for the logo which worked out quite good (well, bettern than my other attempts for a logo).

Here's a first package with suggestions. If you like one color scheme, name it, or else, suggest your colors.


If you want, just take the poll on my blog

I've moved the logos into a webalbum instead of constantly uploading friggin' huge packages. So just go <a href="http://picasaweb.google.com/mail.simon.wollwage/MosaLogos>here</a>.

I'm sold on the pattern in general (unless someone else has submissions for now).

We should still talk colors though.

I'm fond of the light blues and greens that make me reminisce to my time spent with .cs and .vb files - it just feels warm and .NET-ie, like Visual Studio. So I like the symbol from 004-001 and the text from 004-003. Personally.

I like the 004-003 personally most. Basically the same reason as illuminus86, the colors feel good. There's just one thing distracting me: The font of the text and 'Managed Operating System Alliance' is too dark compared to the rest of the picture. I think you should go with the same shade of green as used in the logo on the left.

I'd be interested in smaller images as well.

I, personally, on IRC, argued for darker text, for contrast and complimentation - but I definitely understand.

And rootnode has mentioned that he himself isn't fond of this specific font.

Yeah, the font is just some font I had on my Mac. We'll get our own font soon anyway. Most important thing right now is the colorscheme and the question: with our without the shadows? slightly rounded or not rounded?

I think the light green/blue looks pretty good. Rounded corners look great in my opinion and some shadows are good too. But we need to be careful with printing, especially black&white colors.

How about something like this for text (using rootnode's graphic): http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/5030/mosaidea.png

Nah. Clash in design style between professional with the logo & name,
and casual / hacker-ish counterculture with the acronym font.

I'll throw in agreement with 004-001 / 004-003. I will also caution from
experience that, for print and embroidery, if you go over four colors
(including borders, outlines, etc), you'll start getting charged out the
nose. Also, rounded corners and such tend to make for a more complex
pattern file, which may or may not further ding the pocketbook.

+1 to Dykam for making a logo and not something cool :).
