Giweddah: W-route - My logo shows a dynamic route (in shape of a curved "W") on a globe. The text uses the same font as the original logo (with new kerning). The structure is the same as in the Wikipedia- or the Wikimedia logo: A round sign at the top und the text at the bottom.

The following conversation is taken from Wikivoyage/Logo 2013/Submissions#Option 13 - W-route:

16 px favicon: Wikivoyage-giweddah-wroute-favicon16p.png

My logo shows a dynamic route (in shape of a curved "W") on a globe. The text uses the same font as the original logo (with new kerning). The structure is the same as in the Wikipedia- or the Wikimedia logo: A round sign at the top und the text at the bottom. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Giweddah (talk • contribs) .

I suggest a more obvious "W" for the "route". · · · Peter (Southwood) (talk):
first it is a route – and with a little fantasy it becomes a "W". I like logos with a slight "secret": for example the (bavarian) air-screw in the BMW logo or air/land/water in the Mercedes star. Giweddah
It has a vague similarity to the GE logo :-) --Andyrom75 (talk) 12:54, 14 July 2013 (UTC)
Maybe it is because of the color. Here are some variations:

I don't like "W" in this logo. It is very Arabic-like. Moreover, first logo (wroute2) is still GE-like. Second variant... (my proxy-server cutted out it). Third one (wroute4) is similar to Eurovision Baku (Azerbaijan) logo. Alex Spade (talk) 12:36, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

"Baku" is over and what is wrong with arabic?
Proposed variant of "W" letter is similar with Arabic letters. Such imitation (accidental or intentional) is good for Arabic organization or for travel agency working with Arabic states. And it is not good for international, interlanguage project about all countries of the World. Alex Spade (talk) 22:10, 17 July 2013 (UTC)
Maybe I'm still conditioned from the first impression but I still see the GE logo. Have you consider to modify the "dynamic route"? --Andyrom75 (talk) 12:52, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
Consider: yes. But I like the actual form. And I see no "vague similarity" to the GE logo in the later suggestions, yes there are white lines in a circle – but that is the only similarity. Giweddah
I like this conceptually and visually, particularly in the third thumb above using our soon-to-be discarded logo's colors. The path is stylized/abstracted enough where I don't think using a W is problematic for language versions that do not use a Latin W in their name. But I also share concerns about the similarity to the GE logo. I guess that will be a question for Legal. --Peter Talk 20:26, 16 July 2013 (UTC)
It probably doesn't help much but I like the very first one very much. A path around a globe that forms a W, all made with so less strokes. This is brilliant. I also like the dark blue color. Number 5 confuses me a bit. It's like the stroke is going the wrong direction, getting thinner from right to left. Maybe it's because the tip of the brush that forms the stroke is mirrored. You can't use a brush that way when you are right handed. Yea, I know, this is nitpicking. ;-) --TMg 19:29, 18 July 2013 (UTC)
