Re: Logo considerations
Message ID:
 	Firstly, I'd like to speak in favour of the idea of designing a logo 
for Perl6, and then creating a Rakudo logo based on the Perl6 logo and the 
Parrot logo.  From here on, I'll be addressing the Perl6 logo.

 	I vote for this at the moment, but I'd still like to see other 
proposals now that we have some more direction.

 	These criteria seem to eliminate all of the other existing logo 
proposals.  However, some of them could be redesigned to fit these criteria. 
I'd like to ask, though, that all future logos include both the text and the 
graphical version.

 	In spite of what you said about the butterfly being enormous, I'd like 
to suggest that one advantage of having a butterfly is that we could 
believably have it sitting on top of the Parrot (enormous parrot too?).

 	In response to those asking for a professional designer, I'd like to 
see us go around a few more times here, and see if we can't come up with at 
least a good concept that could hopefully be used/stylised by a real graphic 
designer, so that we might end up with something like the Parrot logo.

 	Now that Larry's provided some criteria, let round 2 of the design 
process begin!
