Hi Bernhard, all!

Thanks for the answer - and really good thoughts :-)

Just some short comments on this issue as well, because I'd like to
finally answer Andras question  ... :-)

Sorry for mixing up two different topics - but I found them related when 
thinking of official names...

Well, sorry for appearing so "picky", but I thought it would be helpful
to go a first step. The other topic is important as well, of course.

Personally, I think we should start to collect such tiny logo issues in
the wiki and update all in one "rush" - to save some effort.


Could somebody please take care of that? I'd do that, but then it gets
added on the high pile of "things to be done later" ;-)


So how about the following logos...
"Basic/Plain" (defines basic color and shape)
               * Derived "contemporary -->  LibreOffice "preferred" logo
                 (highlighted on the branding page)
               * Derived "grayscale" (like today)
               * Derived "black/white" (like today)
               * Derived "inverted" (like today)

I'd switch it:

Main logo: present "contemporary logo"

    Derived "plain colors logo" (dark grey and green)
    Derived "greyscale logo"
    Derived "black logo" (today: black/white)
    Derived "white logo" (today: inverted)

    Derived "green/black logo" (today: basic) for special needs.

Okay, that sounds fine to me ... to me it is still the "contemporary
logo" (which should really get the name "main") derived from the plain
logo. But this may be a personal preference, so if it is kept - that's a
great proposal! Nik, what do you think?

But we definitely should provide the spot colors of our color palette, 
so people know about the colors we want to be used on physical banners 
and the like.

Yep, and it makes it easier to refer to them in our designs / motif.

From my point-of-view, most of the confusion is created by those people
who copy the logo from other locations in the web - and sometimes even
modifying them. Grrrr.

Did you already find examples on LibreOffice? (I remember really 
horrible ones from OOo)

Something like that?

Best regards


PS: And if we agree on 80% Grey for our logo, I'd propose to give it a 
LibO name (LibreGrey 1) in our palette.

I would even propose to name some of the others as well - to refer to
them in our designs. How about some counterparts (similar hue) Grey
0 ... Grey 5?

Okay, a short summary:
      * Renaming / restructuring of the logo names like you proposed
      * Adding names to some of the gray/grey shadings to be
        counterparts to the "real" colors
      * Switching the black in our plain logo version (and maybe others)
        to a dark gray/grey one

Is this correct?
