Comment

Voting on round 1 has CLOSED. Round 2 begins on December 1, 2012 at 00:00 UTC.

It is desirable for Wikivoyage to have a new logo for its WMF launch which is scheduled for late October. This will be a two-phase process. In round 1, we will vote on the general concept of a logo, followed by round 2, where we will flesh out the selected concept and variations to select a final logo.

Time frame - Round 1:

  • October 2012: Open for submissions
  • November 1, 2012: Voting begins on round 1 submissions
  • November 15, 2012: Voting on round 1 closes at midnight GMT.

Logo contest guidelines:

  • All submitted logos must satisfy the guidelines at Logo#Proposing_new_logos, which have been set down by the WMF.
  • Our new logo should harmonize with existing WMF project logos (particularly the "content" wikis, as opposed to "administrative" wikis).
    • At the same time, however, the logo should not be so similar to existing logos (WMF or otherwise) as to cause possible brand confusion.
  • Our new logo must be language-independent (preferably no lettering in main logo, usable with "Wikivoyage" transliterated in all languages).
  • The logo should somehow reflect and convey what the travel guide is about - a free, open source, travel guide that anyone can edit.
  • The logo should be scalable and reusable. Consider how the logo will look: on the web page, as a favicon, on paper, on T-shirts, on smartphones and tablets, etc.
  • The logo should be adaptable. We may use the logo as a basis for the design of icons and other design elements. Designing those icons is not part of the contest, but be prepared to answer questions on these.
  • Color doesn't matter (much). This is a two-stage process. For now, we just want basic concepts and ideas. We will develop the winning idea further (including color decisions) in a second stage.
  • The logo's copyright must be transferred to the Wikimedia Foundation; that means (practically) that it has to be free of any copyright claims beyond the author's. "[T]he best practice may be to upload proposals on Commons under the Commons:Template:Copyright by Wikimedia, since the final trademark should be transferred to the Wikimedia Foundation." [3]
  • The logo concept should be one suitable for rendering in a vector format (e.g., SVG); proposals, though, can be in any format.
  • Wikimedia's Marketing Department gets to weigh in and Wikimedia's legal team gets a veto (for trademark or other legal reasons).

Voting guidelines:

  • We will use en:Approval voting for this poll. You can vote for as many different options as you like, once per option. If you don't like an option, simply don't vote for it.
  • Keep in mind that the initial poll is intended to select a concept only. If you like the concept, vote for it, even if the colors aren't right or the logo is missing something you think it needs.

Discussion[edit]

  • Does the N as symbol for North in navigation a worldwide concept? Amqui (talk) 17:24, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
  • No, I am not convinced about this. Sorry. Riggwelter (talk) 12:14, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
  • This looks nice, but I would expect the sitename to be something with a "N" in it. Why not a "W", instead? /Johan Jönsson (talk) 16:31, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
    • + :) But N is more neutral - often N with arrows is used on maps. Przykuta (talk) 18:24, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
  • "NikiTravel" :-) Clear, shrinks well, printable, but doesn't grab me and I don't think the N is a good idea. A version with a W (the obvious letter to use) wouldn't work either IMO - David Gerard (talk) 19:15, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
  • We could make it point a little west and than use the W for both W and Wikipedia. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:06, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
    • That would make no sense in languages like French (ouest), not to mention languages that don't use the Latin alphabet. LtPowers (talk) 15:04, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • WMF objects to regular projects using WMF colours, I believe, so this will never get off the ground. This, that and the other (talk) 09:41, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • WMF has no objection to the colors being used. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 10:00, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
    Even so, color is something that can be refined later. LtPowers (talk) 15:04, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • This logo is simple but powerful. Compass is much better than the suitcase or flying because it represents navigating and exploring. The Suitcase or Globe represents travelling and it can be to anyplace like our hometown where we know every nook and corner like back of our hand. So I beleive that Compass can carry represent the theme of Wikivoyage.

Option 2 Backpacker from James Michael Dupont[edit]

Discussion[edit]

  • Sadly I don't think this would work as designed right now. File:Exquisite-backpack.svg (the source for the backpack) is GPL licensed which is horrendous for images and would place horrid obligations on use. Jalexander (talk) 18:48, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Indeed. A newspaper publishing this would have to include the entire text of the {{GPL}} licence (a very long document) and additionally the SVG source code. I don't think that I can support this logo unless it is relicensed as something more suitable. --Stefan2 (talk) 19:48, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Ok, See my new updated version that does not use any direct copy, only a traced and reworked backpack, it would be hard to even say it is directly a derived work. Mdupont (talk) 15:11, 6 October 2012 (UTC)
      • Uhm, I'm no expert - luckily I work with some - but a trace of a GPL image is probably still covered, I would think Struck: I realize now that he traced a different file, not the GPL of the backpack. Also, I am not sure about the usage of the Wikipedia logo globe on the backpack... why Wikipedia, and not any of the other projects? It just feels out of place to me. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 07:10, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
        • The image traced is dual licenced, cc and gpled. The Wikipedia logo, well because I like it, I would put it on my backpack if I could get a patch for it, and it is the most well known wikimedia project. Anyway, you have both versions and can remove it. Mdupont (talk) 07:40, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
  • No, this is not a very good suggestion. Wikivoyage must cater for more travellers than backpackers (which the backpack hints...) and CamelCase is simply ghastly. Riggwelter (talk) 12:09, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
    • dont get hung up on it pls, it was just a nice idea, the backpack can have lots of patches or not, as you like! see v6 be creative. Mdupont (talk) 19:48, 7 October 2012 (UTC) way
      • I like the idea of a Wikipedia patch. It just needs to be bigger:-) Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 09:37, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
        • The Wikipedia logo is non-free and cannot be used in a free derivative work. And I doubt the WMF would approve regardless; it might cause confusion. LtPowers (talk) 13:16, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
        • It might be non free, but you can take a picture of a backpack with it on it and it wont make that non free, we are talking about a patch on a backpack of someone who is supporting the Wikipedia and traveling around writing for wikitravel, not a trademark infringer. I am sure it would be acceptable if we ask in a nice way. anyway as I said, relax it is just an idea, lets be creative here! :D Mdupont (talk) 19:07, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
          • Is the final result going to be free or do we want the final result to be similar to the Wikipedia logo and owned by the Wikimedia Foundation? If the final result is owned by the WMF than it is not a problem.Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 22:04, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I think logos should in general avoid too much detail. The number of compartments, straps and buckles on the bag makes it too complex. I also think it is too backpacker focussed. The colours are also boring, and the curved text is annoying. Finally, putting a Wikipedia patch on is a terrible idea. We are not a subsidiary of Wikipedia. We're not their little cousin. We are "sister sites". JamesA (talk) 04:34, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
    • To be honest, the presented logos are not that nice. But here we are to vote for concepts and i think a backpack is a good idea for a wiki-voyage logo--Svebert (talk) 07:32, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
      • That's fine. The general backpack idea is quite good! JamesA (talk) 08:12, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
        • I agree with with JamesA that it is too complex, too backpacker focussed, the colours are boring, the curved test is annoying, and the Wikipedia patch is a terrible idea. However, I disagree with him that the backpack idea is quite good. --Inas (talk) 09:21, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose Oppose --Maxtirdatov (talk) 09:25, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I agree, to much detail. But does not mean the idea of using (a more stylized) backpack is a bad idea. It definitely evokes feelings of travel. Mutante (talk) 17:07, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Option 3 Globe with Map[edit]

Derived from commons:File:Globe.png. The claim reads in German: "Wikivoyage. The free travel guide".

Discussion[edit]

  • Interesting, but does not "stick out". Riggwelter (talk) 12:12, 7 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I´m with Riggwelter here, interesting but not catchy enough. Maybe tone down the colours and make some traveling arrows across the surface of the globe./Johan Jönsson (talk) 16:35, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Thanks for commenting and for giving your advice. I agree with you, but I won't change anything in those logos because I have no experience in working with graphics, I'm all into text. I think, however, that a globe should be included in a logo for a travel guide. Perhaps someone who knows how to manipulate graphics can help about this? – Thanks in advance.--Aschmidt (talk) 20:53, 8 October 2012 (UTC)
Maybe you can use the globe from proposal 11. Maybe we can make it rotate, animated .gif seem rather common these days. Anyway, a globe is good and your text looks really proffesional./Johan Jönsson (talk) 18:23, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
No, animated gifs/a rotating globe would not be good, it would take the focus away from the contents. Riggwelter (talk) 20:04, 18 October 2012 (UTC)
  • A World Map is a good idea, but I think that it needs to be one that shows the whole world. So a different projection would be better - eg. Mercator's Projection. Also globe symbols are used for other icons, like to represent the internet. AlasdairW (talk) 22:48, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
  • We cannot show the whole world map because that would not make a logo. A stylised globe fits better into that.--Aschmidt (talk) 17:16, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

Option 4 Compass Rose with Globe[edit]

My sketch of logo. The proportions of the elements can be changed, the arrow drawn more carefully.

Meta and WMF logo style. Earth and compass, as traveller's tool and object. Top arrow sign W, bottom arrow - V (if Wikivoyage win). Digr (talk) 12:52, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Johan Jönsson (talk) 06:54, 1 November 2012 (UTC). Got a strength in the simplicity, expecially v0.2aRetracts my vote, too similar to meta-wiki. Doesn´t stand out as a travel-site among the others in the logo-family.

              • I actually think we should use the WMF color scheme for projects related to other Wikimedia projects (like the foundation's wiki, Wikidata, Commons, the incubator and Meta, as they are all related to other projects) and another logo for what I would call "content-wikis", like Wikipedia, Wikibooks and this project. If you look at http://wikimedia.org, you'll also notice all the logos comply with what I suggested (expect maybe the Wikispecies logo, but it still has certain differences). -- Julien Dethurens (talk) 02:09, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

  • The best ideas here in my opinion. I prefer 0.4 but also have a suggestion how it could work better to me: I would rotate the outer ring so the cardinal directions from the globe agree with the four arrows. I think this would look more coherent. And perhaps other colours would work too. --Pilettes (talk) 17:44, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Have you thought about taking the.1 version but aligning the arrows with the primary meridian so that it looks like a classroom globe and deleting a parts from the globe (say the first 3 sections from the top line and the 2nd section from the second line) the way the Wikipedia logo has parts missing? Great theme though. --84.41.86.38 22:46, 10 October 2012 (UTC)
    I don't understand your proposal. You want 3D-globe with North Hemisphere? Digr (talk) 04:37, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
    No. Just the existing segmented schematic, but with the arrows on the outside ring lined up with the straight line in the globe schematic. Also, the first 3 segments from the top line of the schematic and the second segment from the second line of the globe schematic deleted to signify that there are still things to add. Or something like that. --84.41.86.38 15:33, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
    Sorry, I'm stupid. I don't understand again. Can you paint it? Please, can we will discuss on my talk page? Digr (talk) 03:28, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I choose this logo because it is more similar with other logos of Wikimedia, but it seems too much of a logo without character. That is too much like that Meta logo. It would be better to round borders of arrows on version 0.3. A great logo IMO would be an icon that represents a guidebook set of side with pictures of landscapes in the open pages. Digr, are you able to create it?  Raoli  16:21, 11 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Version 0.4a and especially 0.6 are really cool! The look very wikimediatic:) Perhaps a deeper blue planet or a thinner white ring between the planet and the outer markers could help, but as it's now it't perfect. Great work! --NaBUru38 (talk) 22:58, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I think this is one awesome logo. Only one huge issue. It looks very similar to the Meta-Wiki logo. Brand confusion or similarity is an awful thing. We certainly do not want to be like Commons, a "subsidiary" site. We want to be a unique website with a unique vision and community. For that to happen, we need a completely different take on the logo. I could support this with a radical change so it bares little resembles to Meta-Wiki's logo.

  • These variants are way too similar to other project logos - especially extremely similar to the logo of this wiki, the Meta-Wiki, by the way;-).

  • As stated many times before, this is much too similar to the Meta-Wiki logo and would need significant modification to make it viable. (maybe there is a possibility of taking elements from this and Option 27 and merging them together?) I think it's also important to note that out of the current 47 support votes, I can only spot one or two Wikivoyagers among dozens of Wikimedians. It's great three communities are coming together, but good agreement among all three would be preferred instead of which has more voting power. JamesA (talk) 02:16, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
  • These look nice, but too similar to Meta's logo. sumone10154(talk) 04:19, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

This is a serious concern[edit]

Folks, look. This logo is EXTREMELY similar to the Meta-Wiki logo. I'm not even talking about colors. It's the shape and the coordinate-system globe icon in the middle. It is likely to cause brand confusion between Meta-Wiki and Wikivoyage. Would the supporters please explain how this choice fits the logo guidelines we agreed upon? Specifically "the logo should not be so similar to existing logos (WMF or otherwise) as to cause possible brand confusion"? This is VERY important to get straightened out quickly, and I don't see very many people discussing this from the pro-logo side (most everyone's just voting). LtPowers (talk) 14:31, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

No one outside of the people that volunteer on WMF projects have any idea that Meta exists, let alone what its logo looks like. In fact, a large number of people that do volunteer on WMF projects have any idea that Meta exists. I don't see an issue. This is also Sven Manguard (talk) 15:45, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
You seem to be completely missing the point of establishing a unique brand identity. The fact that a logo is not well recognized among the general public doesn't make it fair game for usurpation. LtPowers (talk) 17:34, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
I agree strongly with LtPowers. In the first vote there was no other choice, but now yes. Even these other logos Option 38 Strategic Planning Logos have the problem of excessive similarity with the Wikimedia logos and trademarks.  Raoli  23:46, 6 November 2012 (UTC)
I share the same concerns. As I stated above, this logo would need extreme modification to make it viable, or else it just isn't an option. We cannot risk brand confusion and that is a clear guideline. I also find it curious that nearly all support votes are from Wikimedians/Wikipedians. Brand confusion doesn't seem to be an important issue on their checklists. JamesA (talk) 06:39, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
I understand your concerns, but the reason I approve of this proposal is just because it is based on the meta-wiki-logo. In my view, that is the main advantage of this. As we are giving our approval of concepts, my understanding is that by approving this proposal we approve the concept of using a slightly changed meta-wiki-logo. It is a bit confusing though, that the not so meta-wiki-like v0.4b. is a part of this proposal. If I am wrong and the presented concept is supposed be for any kind of globes with compass-like encircling-then this proposal is identical with option 35. Option 35 is also nice but doesn´t have that similarity with meta-wiki so it isn´t identified as a part of the wikimedia-sphere in the same way. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Johan Jönsson (talk • contribs) .
But why would you want the Wikivoyage logo to look like the Meta-Wiki logo? The two projects have nothing in common aside from both being under the WMF banner... why not make it look like the Foundation logo, or the Wiktionary logo, or the Wikisource logo instead? Why Meta-Wiki? And none of the other project logos bear this significant similarity, either; why should Wikivoyage alone inherit another project's logo elements? LtPowers (talk) 16:48, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
The fast answer, is because the vote is held here and the meta-logo is the one I see and it seem to me to be something connected to wikipedia-sphere (wmf is it?). If someone had proposed something similar to wikibooks, wiktionary, wikipedia, wikinews I would have thought that to be a good idea too. But I decided after my last remark to read up on logo-vote (all held on meta-wiki of some reason) and saw that meta-wiki-like logos have been around every time but never got decided on. Finally I saw this [4] and decided that similarity in colour and too abstract shapes isn´t a good idea, so I will remove my approval of this option./Johan Jönsson (talk) 17:08, 7 November 2012 (UTC)
A logo or trademark must always be clearly distinguished from another by visual point of view. If now we compare these logos, the distinction is no longer clear as it should be.

Comment from Philippe

I was pointed here and asked whether the Foundation had thoughts as to the similarity issue as raised above. I just want to acknowledge that we've been asked, and I've asked Jay Walsh, Head of Communications, whether he could weigh in. He'll be here shortly, I hope, to leave some thoughts. Thanks, all, for the chance to weigh in, but also for all the hard, deliberate work that's being put into the details of this project. Philippe (WMF) (talk) 20:02, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

Comment from Jay Walsh (WMF)

Hi folks, I'm happy to provide some general perspective from the Foundation on the topic of branding/identity. As most of you probably know, WMF doesn't directly involve itself with the creation of new marks nor the processes that unfold, except to provide input or context that may be helpful. I've only seen a few identity creation processes unfold in our projects over the past five years, and each time there's always a slight change of process - frequently an optimization of process. I would cite the recent Wikidata logo contest as a good process: highly visible, good promotion etc.

In this case I do share some concerns that the proposed Wikivoyage logo has a great deal of similarity to the meta wiki logo. I don't think that's an extraordinary issue, but I do concur that having two of our project logos look so similar can cause confusion. The case I would present is display of all the project logos. WMF often does this in reports and presentations (see the annual report for instance) - I think about how all of the marks look together, and in this case I do have some concerns that anyone (Wikimedian or member of the public) might remark on how similar the two marks are.

However, this mark is also missing a key ingredient, the type treatment underneath (or beside, wherever it's intended to live). If there is a completely unique and original use of text around this mark it may successfully distinguish it from the meta wiki mark. And although the marks of our projects routinely rely on the classic RGB color scheme, I would say there's nothing preventing the designer from considering a distinct color palette to further distinguish it from meta. There is no Foundation requirement (nor request) that the logo use these establish colors in a new mark, and in fact I actively encourage anyone creating identity within our projects to consider new color options. I would argue that RGB is a common element to the WMF project community only because it provides a reasonable starting point in design (which is completely understandable and logical in most cases).

I think these points have been mentioned already, but the concerns I would encourage you to keep in mind: how will it look at 40px or less (mobile access will be huge), will it scale and work in a larger size if necessary, will it be easy to localize - position of the project name text in non-roman characters. I would avoid logos that require wrapping or bending the text around a shape. Other language communities will want to localize, and making text placement simple and straightforward is important.

I also sense there's urgency around arriving at a conclusion because of the timeline of the project. I would encourage the community to consider the first logo something open to revision and changes over the first 6 months of the project's life. As the community grows and the project builds momentum there will be more voices to provide insight and opinion. Keeping the decision somewhat open-ended for the next 3 to 6 months seems like a good plan.

Hope this helps - happy to reflect further if you have questions. JayWalsh (talk) 02:12, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Put some color[edit]

  • Of course, this logo can be used only if the name Wikivoyage was choosen as the project name.
  • Under the logo, more information like transliterated names, "The Free Travel Guide" could be written.

  • If we "join" WMF (or get "adopted" by WMF), we should of course have a new logo. The name is fine, but a new logo does mean a sign of a fresh start. So, a no to this logo. Riggwelter (talk) 20:22, 16 October 2012 (UTC)

    • Well, this big "V" stands for the "Voyage" in "Wikivoyage. Since one often uses check lists when preparing for travel, even your interpretation makes sense. I like it a lot, it is simple yet clearly refers to the wiki. In the German and Italian speaking wiki community, it is firmly established and has a high recognition value. --Mulleflupp (talk) 13:59, 4 November 2012 (UTC)

  23. To me the suitcase + white globe is far & away the best logo here. It is simple while many of the others strike me as far too complex and it has no words so it works in any language. Both the suitcase and the globe allude to travel, and the globe has additional benefits. It points out that this is a worldwide guide. It also resembles the WMF logo enough to indicate the relationship between WV and the Foundation but, because it is a different colour, it does that without any confusing resemblance.

  • I think we nailed it here, lets adopt the suitcase. (not to be confused with the briefcase, the icon of bureaucrats) /Johan Jönsson (talk) 18:10, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I think this one is really good, I like the colours chosen, and the simplicity. I did all my traveling with a backpack, or now a bicycle, but I like this image. Only needs to be changed from a jpg.
  • I like it. Maybe some compass or Paris-Sticker (or palm or sailboat on the suitcase) - but then there would be to many details. It should be possible to use the logo at a very small size, for example Suitcase icon blue green red jpg to svg v1.svg (30 px - like on the Wikipedia Main page) The white globe has already to many details - Suitcase icon blue green red jpg to svg v3.svg --Bin im Garten (talk) 15:30, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
  • W/o globe. It's basketball's ball in X-ray. Digr (talk) 17:04, 19 October 2012 (UTC) -- I made the whide color now stronger (no more X-ray). Thera are also other globe-icons that dont resemble basketballs. --Bin im Garten (talk) 12:27, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
  • The idea of using a suitcase is great, and the style is very wikimediatic. But the logo looks too static, whereas travelling is exactly the opposite. Try to add speed to the logo, like putting the suitcase in perspective and/or tilted and some go faster stripes. Keep going! --NaBUru38 (talk) 23:00, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I like number 27 most. Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v27.svg --Bin im Garten (talk) 12:14, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
  • How about modifying #17 to make it look like the suitcase has wings? — Ravikiran r (talk) 12:26, 21 October 2012 (UTC) - I modified it: see 17a, 17b, 17c and 17d --Bin im Garten (talk) 13:48, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Some of the logos look too complex. Other Wikimedia logos appear in the web browser's list of boookmarks in a very reduced size. I suppose that the logo needs to be recognisable even if the largest dimension only is 20 pixels (or something similar). Try this: Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v32.svg (20×20 pixels). When rendered at this size, the logo means nothing to me. --Stefan2 (talk) 13:09, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
  • It is a pitty that there are no binding conventions for the logo size. But I think you are right that small details make no sense. This modification Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v28.svg (20×20 pixels) has less details. On the Wikipedia Main Page, where all logos are shown in the bottom part, they have exactly the following size: Wikipedia-logo-v2.svg - Wikimedia Community Logo.svg - Wikiversity-logo.svg - Wikibooks-logo.svg - Wikisource-logo.svg - Commons-logo.svg - Wikiquote-logo.svg - Wiktionary small.svg - Wikinews-logo.svg (wikinews has a really complex logo) - compare these with Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v33.svg - Suitcase icon blue green red.jpg - Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v28.svg. On the other hand the main use of the logos is not in such small resolutions. If small resolution is such an essential criteria the best way would be to stick with the initial proposal of a plain suitcase - Suitcase icon blue green red.jpg. This goes in line with the verry plain logos of wikibooks, wikiquote, commons and wiktionary. Wikibooks-logo.svg - Wikiquote-logo.svg - Commons-logo.svg - Wiktionary small.svg --Bin im Garten (talk) 13:48, 21 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Option 25 Suitcase with Signpost v1Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v28.svg looks great when standing along with others' logos. It doesn't cause any ambiguity.

  • I strongly think the logotype should be kept as simple as possible. All the versions with wings, signposts and whatnot are way too much. I suggest we base the symbol on the SVG version of the suitcase. If any other symbol should be enclosed, it should be the Wikimedia "W" in the center of the suitcase, but preferably not. So - please! - keep it simple. Creativity is worth all praise, but if this symbol should work in a bigger as well as a smaller version, and be recognised at an instant, we simply cannot have a symbol which looks like a bunting. Less is more! Riggwelter (talk) 15:10, 21 October 2012 (UTC) -- BUT: a suitcase alone is not enought for a new brand. The suitcase icon is so old and standard everywhere in the world. --Bin im Garten (talk) 12:30, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Hey I like the wings:) But seriously, how about we lose the suitcase, or make it very small, and make the wings that look like a "V" the most prominent stylistic element? — Ravikiran r (talk) 15:34, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

  • I like no. 29 the most but without the blue lining for the i. --84.41.86.38 07:12, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I don't like the signpost crossovers. I feel the logos need to feel somewhat balanced/symmetrical, and the signpost throws it off. I really like the wings idea. I don't feel it makes it too busy at small sizes. Of course, one important option we should consider is a variable logo. At small sizes, we could use the suitcase by itself. When we have room to make the logo big, such as in the top-left corner of the wiki, then we use the wings version. And then the suitcase can be adapted in other circumstances as people see fit. If we're doing something about rail for some reason, we can use that particular version. We would not be the first WMF project. Note Wiktionary swaps between their "W scrabble" logo and the "dictionary definition" logo, mostly depending on resolutions. JamesA (talk) 09:06, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
  • What about combining air (wings) and rail-transportaion. --Goldzahn (talk) 12:14, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Oh my, there is too many alternatives, could the amkers maybe remove some of the almost similar variants. Maybe having them on a separate page? The rail-alternatives looks a bit strange, the suitcase is to wide to looka like a locomotive. Wings on the other hand is more of an adornement, something to spice things up./Johan Jönsson (talk) 18:50, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I'ts great to see that people liked my suitcase idea, and made so many variations of it! I like the plain one Suitcase icon blue green red jpg to svg v1.svg. I also like 17 Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v17.svg and 17 a Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v17a.svg, it's the ones that's looks most like a logo to me. Maybe it would look good if we took the stripes that are under the bag on this one Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v17.svg, make them a bit smaller and put them on the green area of the suitcase, if you know what i mean? The angelwings on some of the other ones give me death associations, like the suitcase died (got run over by a train while standing on the tracks?) and is now traveling to heaven or something. The final voyage... And some of the other wings lookes a little bit like odour oozing out of the suitcase, and some of them are way to busy for my taste. / Elinnea (talk) 14:03, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
I agree with you, Elinnea! Those wings you suggest looks most like something to put on a logo./Johan Jönsson (talk) 18:52, 25 October 2012 (UTC)
  • Added wings inside the green area of suitcase, per Elinnea's suggestion (v68-71). On the fence about whether I like it – cacahuate talk 05:20, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

  • I have added now after v71: v17-1 till v17-4 --Bin im Garten (talk) 14:26, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
    • that bat-like loose-paged book of v72 looks great. v77 is also a very good book-icon. The idea of combining a set of book pages with a suitcase is what a travel planning site is all about, but it looks a bit strange with that suitcase. Keep those nice book icons but try with something else beneath them./Johan Jönsson (talk) 19:25, 27 October 2012 (UTC)
  • This really is not such a good idea, It's too suggestive of certain type of travel, with a suitcase rather than travailing light The preceding unsigned comment was added by 88.109.12.80 (talk • contribs) .
  • In number 80/81 we have the sign posts in the middle of the circle of two colors. I think that one image would be good by itself. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 02:39, 30 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I really like the suitcase in 17-2: Suitcase icon blue green red dynamic v172.svg! I also like the book-thing on top of (72) : Suitcase with book v01.svg! It's dynamic and "wingy" and the shape is almost like "V" and "W". It looks like a self-composed guidebook, which is the point of the project! Could you put the book-thing in the suitcase, in white? That would be my favorite! --Atlasowa (talk) 10:39, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
  • Besides the focus on air travel (I would much prefer a version with rail tracks), the wings as they are remind me way too much of those in the Datei:IATA Logo.svg. If the trend is to go with wings then the design should clearly distinguished from those.

Discussion[edit]

  • I think this has potential. To me, the bird/plane arrow says global travel, movement/freedom and all encompassing (as in the guides include the whole world) which explains what the site is all about. Not too sure about the red dot though (Maybe it looks like a city location on a map?) - Cardboardbird (talk) 01:09, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • The arrow should point upwards, not downwards…--Aschmidt (talk) 02:02, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I dislike the red dot, but to me this has potential otherwise. Sven Manguard (talk) 03:40, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • This surely has some potential, I like the iconic earth, it is a bit of Pan-AM over it. The arrow is great (probably should point up, or is it supposed to be a "v"), I have thought of having one across the globe, but around it looks nice when you have that iconic earth. I do not get that red dot either, maybe move it to the edge of the globe as an experiment. I we make two different-coloured points on two sides of the globe and the arrow between, we have the logo for a airline-router! /Johan Jönsson (talk) 18:29, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
    • Thank you for your comments. The arrow is a bird too, so if it point upwards, I loose this idea. But of course, it can be change for an upward movement if a rising spirit is better. Isatis78 (talk) 21:23, 17 October 2012 (UTC)
  • No, this makes me think of the free daily paper Metro, well-known in some 14 countries... Riggwelter (talk) 20:09, 18 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Too close to the metro logo indeed, and also makes me rather think about a news website than a travel website. Effeietsanders (talk) 09:45, 22 October 2012 (UTC)
  • v2 has a nice "around the globe"-feeling. v3 could be a bit strange, you leave the same place as you travel to "there is no place better than home?". v4 is great in that aspect, you will return home but first you will make stops on the way. If we want to focus on traveling away, I guess you should remove two of the blue segments in v4./Johan Jönsson (talk) 15:26, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I like version 3 most, the white gap helps a lot to see the circle and arrow. How about adding more dots and arrows around the map? (I'd put 3 or 5 5 distributed evenly) Also, please make the blue stripe fade out on the opposite side of the arrow, it helps to give the feeling of travelling. Great work! --NaBUru38 (talk) 12:15, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
  • I really like the way this logo is progressing. Version 5 brings together all the good aspects of the others and is looking quite refined as it is. - Cardboardbird (talk) 13:12, 29 October 2012 (UTC)

  • It also somewhat represents a plane, which is a big plus! I like the first one, but maybe it needs more colours. It also just doesn't seem to specifically refer to travel on first glance. JamesA (talk) 04:17, 21 October 2012 (UTC)

  • Versions 3 and 4 are really cool! It's a perfect combination of a plane and a book. Plus, the open book gives a feeling of freedom and openess. Can you try a version in perspective more or less like option 19, with the plane travelling to the right? And can you try changing the circle to a planet like other logos, that is adding the meridians and parallels while keeping the same light blue colour?

  • Being traced doesn't make it not a derivative work. LtPowers (talk) 15:28, 23 October 2012 (UTC)
I traced it with inkscape and reworked most of the vectors. It can be redrawn from scratch with some effort, i can remove more details. basically only the general shapes and the wood shadows are left over. The orginal was cc-by-sa, so it should be ok for making derived works. But if this is a derived work, then I dont have the rights to assign the full rights to the wmf. If people like this i can make a new version from scratch. Lets see what other people say. Mdupont (talk) 17:12, 23 October 2012 (UTC)

This needs some refinement, v1 looks like there is a fish head stuck in a book./Johan Jönsson (talk) 15:15, 24 October 2012 (UTC)

v2 is much nicer, the idea of a bird with a suitcase is a nice thing (something you could see in a childrens book). Maybe something more meaty and less esotheric.

  1. Johan Jönsson (talk) 06:35, 2 November 2012 (UTC). The wheel could work as a travel-logo. (v3)

  • This is nice and simple. I associate this wheel with traveling. I prefer the wheel alone (20:3), of course with the possibility to add a name below in an ordinary font, something classy as in option3. /Johan Jönsson (talk) 15:30, 24 October 2012 (UTC)
  • It is a very specific wheel, the Wheel of Mainz, widely used in the coats of arms of towns in Germany. So, I think that this context of the wheel as a part of specifically German heraldry makes it rather unsuitable as a Wikivoyage logo, it's not general enough. Gestumblindi (talk) 01:28, 3 November 2012 (UTC)
  • As we are not hreldry-centred we could put in as many spokes we want and change the size of them. an old-fashioned cart-wheel makes a nice logo though. /Johan Jönsson (talk) 07:47, 3 November 2012 (UTC)

  • I like the wikibokks-like colour scheme of v6. The position of the signs makes the logo look a bit warped./Johan Jönsson (talk) 06:37, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Make the street post have a "w" (for wiki) tracing its top. (the first sign from left [which could say 'wiki'] looks like the "\", if you trace the top of the post it looks like "^", and the second post would be "/" [and could say voyage"]. \^/=W.] Instead of the right most sign being the "/" which might make too wide an angle,the edge of a slanted map could be the "/". When I say 'sign' I mean the arrow which would say the street name.

Discussion[edit]

It looks great, everyone understands what it is. My problem with this is that it would fit better for an atlas or other more geographical work. Maybe if we broadened the scope of wikitravel (for instance with bodies of water) /Johan Jönsson (talk) 19:31, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

I don't know how to do this, but it may be better if someone could add an arrow comming from behind the globe in a 3D-ish way (sprt of like with option 13, but coming from behind). Possibly make it red as an homage to Wikivoyage (or not, IDK). It would be interesting to see.--84.41.86.38 20:39, 26 October 2012 (UTC)
Are you meaning arrows like these?
Yes! Brilliant! --84.41.86.38 09:11, 27 October 2012 (UTC)

I think that this could be perfect with a big W of Wikipedia inside the globe. Vigevanese (talk) 15:10, 7 November 2012 (UTC)

  • I would like to see that globe combined with the options 4 variant 0.6, or to have the firs variant here with four arrows around instead of only two (so like that it represents more directions then the axis of rotation of the Earth). Amqui (talk) 23:05, 10 November 2012 (UTC) v
  • No doubt it looks quite nice, just where is the "travel" part? It could also just be a maps project or any global organization. In that regard i like the sailboat, suitcase or birds still a bit better. Mutante (talk) 16:55, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

    But that's not the point. This isn't a copyright issue, but a trademark issue, so even unintentional similarity that *could* potentially cause confusion could be an issue.

  19. #1, the squiggly arrow with a road in it. I think it's important to choose a logo visually harmonized to the other Wiki logos, but one that is very distinct and easy to describe (as I just did). This logo would be that, and it also looks very good at any useful reduction/magnification. It makes no difference that it "only" depicts a two-lane highway. It is just an icon. Cluttering it any more would be detrimental. --Mareklug (talk) 07:37, 9 November 2012 (UTC)

  32. The compasses / wind roses work quite well. The last one looks like half meta and half incubator or something. The road is ok but will get requests to also add train tracks, boats, airplanes, bicycles, elephants and all other means of transportation an then it may get a bit crowded;) Mutante (talk) 17:06, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

They are all very beautiful. The first is the one that is best seen in any dimension. However, IMO are too similar to the logo of Wikimedia.  Raoli  00:00, 30 October 2012 (UTC)

The last one in particular is almost a copy of the WMF logo, which could be very confusing. -sche (talk) 23:01, 1 November 2012 (UTC)
They look nice, have a great finish. Some of them are similar to option 4 and 20 and could be used in round2 as an alternative./Johan Jönsson (talk) 17:17, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
  • I'd like the third logo (planet with red arrow) tilted to the right. --NaBUru38 (talk) 18:41, 3 November 2012 (UTC)


  • For the first one, any way to turn this into a hybrid of road and rail track? I personally don't like that much focus on road travel. -- 160.62.10.13 03:07, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Option 39 The Dhow[edit]

This is a proposal which focuses on the dhow, a vessel used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean region, imho an excellent example of crosscultural connector. It's just a sketch. :-) --Pequod76(adminiubbo) 20:34, 31 October 2012 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

Unfortunately I came across this logo brainstorming really late. I hope I will have the time to transform my proposal a little, making it maybe more easily round and fitter to the needs of a logo. I see that now my proposal needs many adjustments. And I see many beatiful proposals in this page, like 20. 24 and 27. :) --Pequod76(talk) 11:14, 1 November 2012 (UTC)

I like it. It is the nicest style of the sailboat options. --Inas (talk) 09:17, 6 November 2012 (UTC)

How about a mirror (flip left to right) one?--王小朋友 (talk) 15:16, 8 November 2012 (UTC)

Not bad, but... needs more substance. Like a planet in the background, or something. --Piotrus (talk) 20:07, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

@王小朋友: Why not? :-)
@Piotrus: I agree with you. Maybe the red line could "go round" to make a circle all around. And I could also add the three bended bars of the Wmedia logo.
I think it needs to be more round: right now it's too "thin". --Pequod76(talk) 13:07, 15 November 2012 (UTC)

I like the idea well enough, but in these examples the compass looks too much like a generic dial. It might even be seen as the timer on a bomb!—Odysseus1479 (talk) 01:46, 5 November 2012 (UTC)
