Hey Everybody!

We're putting a call out for Logo ideas for JDNC. Any good ideas?

Hey Rich. I had a few questions. Where will this logo be used, what purpose should it serve, and what should it represent?

Also, does the proposal of broadening JDNC to cover other projects such as layout affect the logo? (e.g. should it be representative of all of JDNC, or just the JX, JN, markup)?

Thanks, I think the answers will help guide us in coming up with ideas.

Hey,

Really good questions. I don't know if I have any good answers for you yet :)

Here's what I'm thinking. In another thread we are discussing breaking up the project differently (http://www.javadesktop.org/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=6656). One model that I was thinking of following is that of the jakarta project. They have a host project (apache) similiar to our javadesktop. There is then the jakarta "uber-project" and we would have a similar project. This *could* be named JDNC, or maybe we could use something with a little more zip (and marketability) like... Tango. Kind of a play on the Swing name :). Anyway, we then would have several sub projects that are "blessed", just like there is Cactus, Commons, Tomcat, etc. These would be our swingx, JDNC Components, markup, binding/data models, incubator, etc.

What do you think? Should we have one big logo covering everything, or should we work on different logos for each sub project? I'm thinking that a single generic JDNC logo for starters is a good idea, and we can brainstorm on specific ones for the other projects later.

What do you think?

Good analogy with Apache. Yes, I think one should be good for now (one to rule them all.... ;) partly since we're not sure how the reorganization of the project will go yet, and other partly since we'll have to convince some visual designer to do the work for us. =)

If JDNC continues in the theme of extending swing, then some abstract or literal play off of Duke or Swing could be appropriate.
