Excellent reading. On this basis I traced what I believe is the profile of the
two marks (Paper Airplane) and folded paper (used in Libo soon):
a. distinction 3
b. visibility 8
c. usability 10
d. memorability 10
e. universality 10
f. Durability 8
g. timelessness 7

The memorization of the paper plane as the logo for Libo can be obtained by
deeds done by us. If each event took several paper airplanes to distribute to
the public (please using recycled paper), this will create the public who wish
Visiting the site of Paul Rand came to your gallery
(http://www.paul-rand.com/site/identity/) could not find much originality
(sorry, but it is my opinion).
It is strange for me to defend something done, but the idea of the paper
airplane can be only in people's minds in years. What we have in our hands is
one way this process be facilitated. The Libo will be present throughout the
world, our logo will be in schools, businesses, computer fairs, car stickers and
all. Not just a facade of a company in one country or another.
It is similar to other logos: yes! But it is "our paper airplane." I see the
logo not as a symbol that accompanies the software, but a way of communicating
with the public. In our events we can make a paper airplane contest that flies
farther and the winner receives a gift from cd ... how such actions with a
"folded paper"? who fold a paper faster? ...

People will always have different associations for logos and that doesn't
really matter unless it has a high profile attachment to another brand or

that it fails because it is not unique. The page with the folded corner
is however, quite unique.
+1 for Lucas' paper plane. :-D
Personally, the "folded corner" doesn't trigger any such association
in my mind. I had to read that in the list to realize that's what it
was supposed to be.
It's not supposed to trigger any association at this point. It's necessary to
look at the branding long term
At least the paper plane looks clearly like what it is. And,IMHO,
there weren't *so many* paper plane logos.
More than one is too many, One large corporate such as laPoste is more than
too many. Branding is about having unique image that eventually is
immediately identified with the product or service.
Plus LibO's is likely to be
the most-recognized worldwide.
The important thing would be for LibO's paper plane to have its own
originality? Plus I feel the concept has a lot of flexibility and
Originality and uniqueness are the key indeed, I'm just saying that the paper
plane while cool in concept is not sufficiently unique or original
unfortunately. Does the Folded corner page, fulfil the criteria? Moreso than
the paper plane.
Have a read of Paul Rand, Rand designed the IBM logo as well as a few other
iconic brands in the US, Westinghouse, UPS and ABC. He is considered the
father of modern branding by many. He explains it better than I can.
