International logo contest/Overview
|←historical pages||2003 Wikipedia international logo contest (logos overview)|
|This was an international contest held from July 20 to August 27 2003, gathering 150 proposals. After the early proposal by Chuck Smith on October 12, 2002, the contest was first proposed on June 14, 2003 by Erik Moeller, who argued that the logo (adopted in January 2002 from the Logo suggestions) was unaesthetic, not international, and portrayed a text-only Wikipedia.
This page includes many examples of why the present Wikipedia Death-Star logo is actually really good, and also why graphic designers get paid real money to come up with good logos. It must be preserved for future Wikipedians as a collection of cautionary examples. - David Gerard 20:52, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
