  • This logo, kind of like the Wikiversity one, has slightly ambiguous depth. Obviously the middle "child" is in front, but they're all flat, and it should be on a different plane since it's closer, since we assume they're all the same size. Also, the sharp shape caused by the middle figure superimposed on the other two (in "B," the left hemisphere of the blue, right of red) is a little unpleasant.

  • I'd be fine with keeping this as the logo. What are the objections to this? – Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 00:49, 28 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]
  • Keep this logo. It is already perfect. Londenp 11:59, 5 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
  • Why two blue people in A, racial undertone here perhaps? I think they should all be colored differently like in B. colours in B better for heads and bodies. Take B picture and A font for best combination or maybe B is just all round better. SunCreator 14:56, 17 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]


C Iconic logo for WikiBooksJr --Selden


D Red and Green logo. --Risk


E A child and a bookcase. --Mirek2


F A world with children around --Ramac
  • I like this as a logo, but the symbolism is rather human rights, peace or equality than children, books or learning. Perhaps we could add the people(children) around the wikibooks logo instead of the globe?--Demoeconomist 21:05, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]
  • This is excellent! Second best of them all. Maybe the children could be a little less genderless and a bit more normal looking. Concept is A++, image quality slightly lower. SunCreator 14:41, 17 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]


G Parts of UNICEF logo merged with a pastel-shaded version of the Wikimedia logo. --Tmalmjursson

This logo is too much like the UNICEF logo. It feels like a rip-off. Although, the pastel colours work well with the whole Junior thing. The font is very 'kid-like' too.

I agree, and I have to worry whether we would even be allowed to use such a logo if people selected. --Whiteknight (meta) (Books) 01:26, 26 March 2008 (UTC)[reply]

H, I[edit]

H Logo with two children holding Wikimedia logo. --MG
I The same logo as this on the left, but children are blured and title is more shining. --MG
favicon:part of H Logo simplified without Wikimedia logo.
  • Not being the original creator of this logo, I suggest to use it for a sign of "junior-suited article" or somethig like that instead of selecting it as a new logo of Wikijunior. If somebody wants, he/she could continur the simplification or change/add an idea to it to make a competitive logo of the current one.--Demoeconomist 20:57, 4 April 2008 (UTC)[reply]


J Globe with title. --Risk


K UNESCO and Wikimedia logos combined. --User:Theresa knott
With the Wikibooks Logo we had the problem that it used the colors of the Wikimedia Foundation logo. (see Wikibooks/logo/archive-vote-5)
When the colors of the WMF logo aren't possible, then we shouldn't try the logo it self.
