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

Very impressive work!

Regarding projects that doesn't already have logo, would you be interested in coming up with logo suggestions for those projects? I can only speak for the PROJ project, but I am sure all projects without a logo would be interested in having one. At least a new logo for PROJ would be very welcome!

Good job,

Hello all,

I have finally been able to put together and publish a first version of the OSGeo symbols set.

This is a visual representation of the OSGeo projects and activities aimed at supplementing the Foundation branding material.

A preview of the OSGeo symbols set is available here:

The 48 symbols fall into four categories:
- Foundation (OSGeo fundamentals represented by 'Variations on the Compass')
- Initiatives (mostly based on the compass shape too)
- Projects (derived OSGeo project logos)
- Community (derived Community projects logos)

The set is made of two parts, both copyrighted OSGeo:
- The source SVG documents, licensed under CC-BY-SA
 (see https://github.com/nbozon/osgeo/tree/OSGeo-symbols-set/marketing/branding/symbols/svg)
- A cross-browser webfont, licensed under OFL.
(see https://github.com/nbozon/osgeo/tree/OSGeo-symbols-set/marketing/branding/symbols/font)

Important notes:
- Some projects do not have a logotype, only logotext, and cannot be included in the set at this stage (namely PROJ, GEOS, OSSIM and Degree).
- Some projects logos were heavily modified or redrawn, in order to ensure constistency and scalability. I'm listening to project owners feedbacks and will be glad to work towards better solutions if needed.
- All 48 symbols are made available as black SVG. The 16 Foundation and Initiatives icons are also available in color, based on our brand guidelines.
- This work may not be exhaustive and is subject to change.

Hope you will like it !
