Re: [libreoffice-marketing] Re: [libreoffice-projects] Re: LibreOffice Mascot


Hi :)
How about a Rock-hopper penguin?

It's very cute with orangey-red-yellow tufts out of jet-black ears.  They
are impressively determined buggers.  Despite the comedy-value of the way
they waddle and bounce they achieve incredible feats of athleticism such as
jumping higher than their own height from a standing start.  Each time they
fall off a cliff they bounce from rock to rock at the bottom but then get
up again and follow the same route until it inevitably yet remarkably
reaches the top.

As Dr Who said "Penguins are cool".
Regards from
Tom :)

To put my two cents in.

The dragonfly is already used by DragonFly BSD and Opera Dragonfly.

Since today is world penguin day [1] some journals reported about Tux,
which is a good reminder to keep our discussion boiling with the
reference how Linux found its mascot [2]. To summarize the discussion
I created a pad [3]. Anything to add?

Hello all,

additional to the unique branding of LibreOffice today, we want to
introduce an alternative to TDF's trademarked logo/icon elements that can
be used by the community with minimal restrictions: a mascot.

The idea is similar to "Duke" from Java (https://kenai.com/projects/
duke/pages/Home), SuSE's chameleon "Geeko", Mozilla has a
lizard/godzilla/tyrannosaurus, Linux' "Tux" is famous, KDE is going with
the dragon "Konqi" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konqi) and Krita has
"Kiki" (https://krita.org/en/kiki/).

The first step would be to find some metaphors that enables designs to
be creative. Something like Freedom, Documents, Openness etc. Ideas for the
realization are of course also welcome. The mascot could be an animal like
a (grumpy old) cat to refer to the seven lives of LibreOffice or something
more symbolic.

Based on your input we would later start the actual design task, and
ideally have a few options where the community can choose the best.

Cheers,
Heiko
