Unity Logo

@michel-renon,

By “it” in the quoted question, I assume you are asking about the nature of the logo that will be used, in the final release, by the anticipated remix/flavor.

Based in part on what I’ve pieced together from this thread, I believe that the nature of the logo that will be used, in the final release, has not yet been determined. That is, at this time, Canonical has not yet indicated whether the remix/flavor will, in the final release, use as its logo:

  1. the standard Ubuntu CoF logo, without any additions, deletions, or other modifications; or

  2. a logo that includes the standard Ubuntu CoF logo combined with additional elements (such as proposed in comment #13) to distinguish from vanilla Ubuntu, but not sufficiently distinct to avoid infringing the Ubuntu CoF trademark (so a license would be needed); or

  3. a logo that is sufficiently distinct from the Ubuntu CoF logo that it would be considered not to infringe the Ubuntu CoF trademark, much like the logos used by Ubuntu Budgie, Xubuntu, and Ubuntu MATE (the examples that you provided) are all intended not to infringe the Ubuntu CoF trademark; or

  4. something else.

To reiterate, based in part on what I’ve pieced together from this thread, I believe that the nature of the logo that will be used, in the final release, has not yet been determined.

Speaking only for myself, I hope that Canonical will allow using, in the final release, something very similar to the standard Ubuntu CoF logo, perhaps something like what I proposed in comment #13. And I could provide arguments why it would be in Canonical’s interest to allow, and thus they should allow, the use of such a similar logo in the final release. But I suppose that we’ll have to wait for Canonical to ask for feedback and/or to provide more guidance.

I vote for two logos proposed on comment #13 by @GizmoChicken. Unity’s case is little unique because unity is maintained by Canonical and will be maintained until 2021. So I believe two would be permissible. Now question is which one among those two? I vote for second one without text because as dood pointed out that in low resolution the text won’t be visible properly.

Much appreciated! And I certainly agree that Unity’s case is unique.

Of the two, provided that the text for “Unity” would be legible, I prefer the first. But the second would be better at low resolutions.

So, how about both? :slight_smile:

That is, the first logo (which spells out “Unity”) could be used as the “high res” logo, used only when a large logo (of a certain pixel size) is appropriate. And the second logo could be used as the “low res” logo, used where a small logo is appropriate.

But if not both, then probably the second logo (which could be displayed in both high and low resolution situations) would offer more flexibility.

This one without the shaddow is really good :+1:

This looks as if Unity is rising…

We also need 22x22 transparent logo for unity badge, like /usr/share/unity-greeter/ubuntu_badge.png. @GizmoChicken Can you do that for second pic of #13 ?

I’m not a graphics guru, so I’m not really sure what I’m doing. But near as I can tell, the second pic of #13 has too many elements to scale well into a 22pt logo. So for a 22pt logo, something simpler would be better.

To get an idea of what I mean, the second pic of #13 (scaled as a 22pt logo) is presented here:

Unity-22pt-a

And a simpler version (also scaled as a 22pt logo) is presented here:

Unity-22pt-b

To add a little appeal, maybe I could make the “U” slightly smaller, so that it is surrounded by more color. Thoughts?

I’m not sure where this logo will be used, and so I’m not sure what parts of the logo should be transparent, etc. But if the simpler logo (or something similar) would be generally appropriate, let me know where it will be used, and I’ll try to work out the transparencies, etc. (But a real graphics guru could probably do a better job.)

Handy links for all involved:

Looks good. “U” should be little smaller. But I think we can have only one type of logo.

Olá. Eu não domino o idioma utilizado neste fórum, mas independente do que seja, ando acompanhando o desenvolvimento faz algum tempo. Disso, depois de quebrar bastante a cabeça pensando em uma solução para o problema, apresento a vocês a proposta que eu elaborei:

Nessa primeira imagem está o logotipo normal utilizando o fundo preto:

Enquanto na segunda, ele é apresentado com as cores invertidas:

Nessa imagem, temos a versão original do papel de parede que eu criei, tendo como acompanhante da logomarca, as logos das interfaces gráficas utilizadas nos sabores do Ubuntu em espírito de unidade e união, o que justamente representa a família Ubuntu e a filosofia do Unity:

Aqui temos a versão derivada do papel de parede original, acompanhada de ícones representando a produtividade e a utilização do sistema em vários ambientes, partindo da multimídia até o banco de dados:

E por último, temos o logotipo completo com a nomenclatura do remix, acompanhado do fundo gradiente:

Eu estou aberto a todos os feedbacks que colocarem aqui, que possam ajudar a dar um up no desenvolvimento do remix, para que num futuro próximo, possa se tornar um integrante oficial da família Ubuntu.

Hello everyone.

In the meantime, I decided to produce two new wallpapers for the remix / flavor, being:

Wallpaper with the official Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa mascot:

Wallpaper created for the special series of Ubuntu 20.x versions:

Promotional wallpaper for the new remix / flavor in the Ubuntu family:

I am open to all feedback about.

I like the third wallpaper. It’s original and interesting. The 2nd is too dark and the degraded is weird. The first one could be better. Text, icons looks unnecessary and the fossa drawing is too low quality.

Thanks for the feedback @JerareYoshi.

Based on it, I sought the solution to the problem that arose when I produced the first two wallpapers. As a result of this intense search and after several attempts, here I present:

Ubuntu Unity Remix 20.04 Focal Fossa wallpaper:

Black background version:

Gradient version:

Ubuntu Unity Remix 20.x Series Wallpaper:

Any errors you find, just let me know here that I will be correcting. :slight_smile:

Hello everyone. Today I would like to introduce you to a set of icons and white, black and gradient tail variants for the main Unity launcher. By accessing the link, you will be able to download and test each one of them with other wallpapers and other themes, in order to evaluate the visual aspect of the remix / flavor:
