(C1) Jumping stick figure

Version C1[edit]

  1. I love this
  2. It's a little similar to the OLPC logo; an iconic X shaped stick figure? That doesn't mean I dislike it, but is a consideration. Sethwoodworth 19:27, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
  3. Pretty good, this one, comes about medium in my preferences. Maybe a bit of tweaking to the colour scheme, but I don't know in what direction. --Mcld 11:19, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  4. My favorite of the choices, but I'd tweak the color scheme (Would primary (the ones kids are taught) colors better convey the meaning?). Regarding the OLPC logo, that's closer to the Cingular logo than this logo. This one uses a very typical hand-drawn stick figure. 171.71.37.203 23:23, 6 May 2008 (UTC)
  5. It's very nice, and only picture without text, my favourite way. Because the wiki logo should be free of any alphabet or language. it:b:Utente:Francescost
  6. I think this one is my favourite—though I do suggest refining the arms if it gets picked. They are a little too wavy... like junior is experiencing an earthquake or something. Tkgd2007 01:08, 31 May 2008 (UTC)
  7. Very good. I like the stick figure idea because most kids draw pictures of stick figures for humans. I agree with everyone else, the color scheme SHOULD be tweaked a little bit and like 171.71.37.203 said, primary colors should be used, because kids are taught these first. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this logo a 8. Cssiitcic
  8. My favorite. Has something playfully to it, as the circles seem like costume clothing. --Bluebirch 09:38, 13 June 2008 (UTC)
  9. Its just the best logo of all! I think this is the most attractive logo for kids. -- emu
  10. very good!--Vipuser 14:06, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
  11. I think that two books should be put underneath the figure arm, but the rest is OK Wild mine 16:33, 5 January 2010 (UTC)



(C2.2) Stiki Jr.
(C2.2) Stiki Jr. with star background

Version C2[edit]

  1. Meet "Stiki Jr.", the stick-person mascot of WikiJunior. Stiki is a happy soul who loves to read and contribute to wikibooks designed for children. This logo was inspired by C1; however, Stiki Jr. was created from scratch. He uses primary colors (per several requests on this page) to appeal to youth. The colors are also (mostly) web-safe to look good in any browser. Stiki Jr. is paired with a modified version of the book from proposal J12 by Risk. The colors were simplified (removed the red tones that clashed with Stiki's face and made the blue more of a primary color) and removed small details that were unnecessary when combined with Stiki Jr. Version C2.2 is identical, except that it adds a pale green star background, which helps square-out the logo instead of having it be a vertical rectangle. I tried using the rounded circles of the Wikimedia logo used in C1, but could not find a layout that looked good and/or did not imply certain gender-specific anatomical aspects to Sticki Jr. that might look inappropriate to some. I hope you like them! --Willscrlt (Talk) 21:54, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
    I added a copy of the base image of Stiki Jr. for references. Stiki is intended to be gender, race, and age neutral. Being a stick-person, the limbs and other body elements can be easily moved to pose Stiki in a variety of positions. Stiki could be used in tutorials, welcome messages, awards, or anywhere else such a happy soul might be useful. While designed for the Wikijunior project, Stiki is project neutral, and could be used on any Wikimedia Foundation site. --Willscrlt (Talk) 22:38, 18 June 2008 (UTC)
  2. I think there is too wide graphic difference between the essential outline of the kid and the over-detailed book. In addition, the colors are too shoking: I don't think children would disapprove gradients!! Really ugly is the version with the star: look at how many colors are mixed there, and how awfult is the result! -- RaminusFalcon «…» («it.wikipedia») 08:02, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
    I agree that the star is ugly. Adding the Wikimedia circles, however, was even uglier (and looked potentially pornographic). I just threw the star in for people to see what the logo looked like superimposed on a background. Even though I designed it, I would oppose it as the final logo. As for the non-star version, you think that the logo might look okay with a simpler book, right? How would you suggest simplifying the book so it looks like a book, but is not too detailed? I thought about using the simpler book from Wikibooks D10 proposal, but it is the wrong orientation. This book was the only proposal facing Stiki instead of the visitor. --Willscrlt (Talk) 08:55, 19 June 2008 (UTC)
  3. This is the best --Elena1396 11:35, 29 November 2008 (UTC)
  4. Good work, but why no eyes? --Jean11 (talk) 18:16, 25 February 2013 (UTC)

Previous discussion[edit]

  • The stick-figure is a good identificator for children. --Matthias 20:22, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
  • The light colors in the background are beautiful, but they make this logo simbolize the health or balance. I would suggest to take the colors of the logo of the WIKIMEDIA FOUNDATION. I'm not sure whether it would be better. Please test some colors.--Demoeconomist 21:09, 4 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Yes both appealing for adults and children, I think. Londenp 11:58, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
  • Its sooooo cute. It's simple and colorful. The stick fgure is a good identifier for kids, but "identificator" is not a word. Kari hyena alligator thing 17:00, 9 April 2008 (UTC)
  • This is just awesome of a junior's logo. My favourite. Maybe adjust the shading of blue a little more brighter. SunCreator 14:45, 17 April 2008 (UTC)
  • very nice, very child-like, but at the same time, it keeps the wikipedia proyect idea intact. a litle more color, brightness could be good, as SunCreator states.--Afa86 17:42, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
