How does that look for the beginning?

Product title: Windows LX

Objective: Design a Logo for the next version of MS open source operating system based on Linux kernel.

Goals: the logo should break down the stereotype of MS being a greedy monopolist and make users want to buy this new version.

Colors: No preference

Style: Very corporate style yet appealing to a normal american family.

Deadline: 2005.01.15, may not be extended.

Have fun!

my submissions-

Random idea i came up with:

incorporating letters LX into a window:

basically used the same colours as windows xp. I've still sorta kept the window concept, but i was wondering, should we still use a window? or can we make something completely different to the original windows logo?

This is just what I would have done in any case, mock true enough, but you get the general gist...

another issue I forgot to mention! The logo should fit into the corporate style of MS... and humorous approach is appreciated :)

echelon: just what I mean - good effort to follow the current MS style!

Wow, so many new ones!
Also, Edua's last one totally catches the feel that linux is not trying to make money as greedy people. Don't like the inverted on though. Like the second one. Penguin = cute = no greed. :p
Nice work everybody!

Here's another one. As you can see the original linux penguin is sitting ontop of windows, giving linux dominance and control over the the greedy microsoft windows.

This is in the rules,

"Why don't you allow people to comment on other people's designs within a contest thread?
First of all - whether or not the comment is good or bad, it is not allowed. We are trying to keep the contest as fair as possible for everyone who is participating in it, and by commenting on another desiger's work - this makes it unfair.
If you absolutely have to say something about their work, and can't wait until the contest is over, please send the designer a private message to express your feelings. Any comments posted in an open contest thread of this nature will be deleted, and you will be given a warning."

Does this apply to this thread? jojomarie
