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?

@kentcdodds Sure, why not. But pronouncing it would be more of a hassle.

Or, following wasm being pronounced "wah-sum",
should it be "wah"?

There doesn't appear to be a way to add reactions on the mobile version of github. If you're on mobile, you can switch to desktop at the bottom right of the page.

From the above, a really like the @carlosbaraza one. It is simply, neat and the detail in the box to emphasise the relation between JS and wasm is a plus!

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.

@rossberg rossberg commented Feb 8, 2017

@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.)

@bobajeff bobajeff commented Feb 9, 2017

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.

Just wanted to point out that @Fogaccio's logo reads as VM, if you rotate it 180 degrees, which is kinda fitting.

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 :)

Honestly, it's a crime that parts of the working group have led a coup that refuses to add the logo proposed by @tsirolnik, which received a majority of the body's votes. Shameful

@carlosbaraza carlosbaraza commented Feb 17, 2017

@distransient @tsirolnik I like it for the following reasons:

  • Gradient
  • Play of words
  • W for the crown and B for, well, that.
  • AWESOME
  • Shapes
