It's time to vote on an official WebAssembly logo!

Please leave a 馃憤 reaction to vote for your favorite logo(s) from the list below. The logo with the most thumbs up after 2 weeks will be deemed the official WebAssembly logo, pending approval from the author to release the assets with a CC0 license. (Other reactions will not be counted.)

These logos were the top 5 submissions to the logo submission thread #112.


EDIT: Voting has ended.

馃帀 Congrats to @carlosbaraza with the winning design 馃帀 !

We will be ensuring that the assets are properly documented and licensed in the next few days.

The official WebAssembly logo is:

I like #3 by @carlosbaraza. One caveat: the abbreviation for JavaScript is JS, but the abbreviation for WebAssembly isn鈥檛 WA, it鈥檚 wasm. Maybe put 鈥渨asm鈥 instead of 鈥淲A鈥 in the box?

Just to give us an idea of what it would look like with "wasm" in the design by @carlosbaraza (3rd), I threw these examples together. Personally, I think the only one that really works well is the lowercase "wasm" (bottom left), but you lose the play on the angles between the capital W and capital A.

@sethlopezme, I like it. The lowercase version is the only adequate one anyway (I wish people would stop shouting WASM -- it's not an acronym but a contraction).

This is the repository to my CC0 licensed logo proposal: https://github.com/carlosbaraza/web-assembly-logo

@s3ththompson I like the approach. I tried to do something similar when I was designing the logo. These are some of my previous attempts, trying to fit wasm in the boxed logo:

previous logo design attempts with full WASM

Some pitfalls:

  • It breaks a bit the relation with the JS boxed logo, as it has more than 2 characters
  • The text is too small to be read properly when the logo displayed small (e.g. favicons, attributions, etc.)

Main thing I dislike about @Fogaccio logo, even thought it looks great, it doesn't tell a story it needs to tell.
It looks like a sport clothing line logo , hip, modern , fresh.
I feel like a wasm logo should portray different kind of ideas and feelings.
The closest I see is @carlosbaraza's logo. Good job !

Putting in for #3. It works even without the text, and more things could go inside of that box, such as a library or toolchain product that exploits wasm. So, I don't see the "WA" usage as being problematic.

Having an iconic shape will be very excellent as more and more of software development funnels through wasm as a universal platform.

I still think it should either be a pure logomark or the logotype should say "WebAssembly" or "wasm". That or make"WA" ('double-yew ay') the official shorthand and file extension (.wa). Also, not fond of how all of the logos insistence on using all caps.

I vote for the third because is the only one that is clear and aligned with the rest of the ecosystem.
The first one is also nice but for someone looking at it out of context is can mean anything... it could even represent a trident and a pyramid :)
