Nicolas, these symbols look very impressive!

As Kristian noticed, there are a few OSGeoLive projects which have logos 
which are not as creative as what you have been creating. (See 
https://live.osgeo.org/en/presentation.html ) I'd be happy to help point 
you to our OSGeoLive points of contact for each project if you would 
like to ask them if you'd like to draw them a logo.

What are your thoughts on logo colours? I'm guessing it would be quite a 
bit of work to adopt logo colours into the SVG?

Once you are done, we should probably be including your logos into the 
OSGeoLive documentation.

Nice work, Cameron
