Help choose a new CSE HTML Validator logo

Post by Albert Wiersch »

Hello,

I've started a design contest for an updated "<HTML> Validator" logo and would appreciate any comments on the submissions. Please let me know which design (which #) you like best and if any clearly stand out from the rest.

http://48hourslogo.com/project.php?id=1170

The current design that is being updated is below.

Thanks!

Based purely on, Did it Catch My Eye, I particularly notice:
53, 39 and 29.

I like versions with the check mark integrated with the "V". #40 and #56 seem clean and professional to me.

Thanks all. The project is now in "judging mode" (no more new entries) and I need to make a decision in a few days. Modifications can still be made to the current designs.

Please take a look at the latest designs listed at the top and let me know which you like the best.

I like #69 and #56. They seem to catch my eye. 40 is a nice logo too.

I had a quick look at the contenders.

I tried to focus in on eyecatching and will it endure in my mind.

From that first think through I'd say:

#69
#30
#72.

On 69. It's moving into a design rather than just words, which is good. I'd seek to reduce the complexity of the image. (The thought that comes to mind on that is, intensify the green, fade the screen shape into the background (make it somewhat transparent would do that) and then get rid of the white framing around the tick.) I'd also kill the http in the URI and make the URI more prominent in the space that frees up.

That's enough.

Thanks all! Looks like the winner will be a variation of #69/#84/#80. Just want to tweak it a little.

That logo site is a great concept. but I have experienced some server issues. Hopefully they can get that fixed.

I've not looked into the operational model. From a quick glance I think I get it.

It's a fascinating idea. With time on my hands (which I don't have) I'd have a good look at how it behaves in practice.

Interesting to see the designs converging. I'm guessing a feedback mechanism.

Agreed the server isn't as stable as it ought to be.

Thanks for exposing us to it.
