Apparently no project is taken seriously before it has a logo. Let's figure that one out.

Here's a couple of initial sketches / ideas:

Wrench

  • uses the same outline as the Silberblue logo
    Fedora_Toolbox

Hex silhouette

  • use the hex shape to double as a hip sticker
    Fedora_Toolbox 2

Terminal

  • Fedora Toolbox is about making CLI great again
    Fedora_Toolbox 3

I love them all, but I have a slight preference for the hex silhouette.

Few attempts at combining the wrench and the commandline have made me rethink the extruded 3d shape. A flat 2D shape is probably way more clear and inline with what Silverblue is using.

Fedora_Toolbox 5
Fedora_Toolbox 4

These are too complex for their own good.

Another approach -- using the Silverblue silhouette, a dot grid with a prompt.

Thanks a lot for working on these, @jimmac !

Note that we dropped the fedora prefix from the project name and it's now just toolbox, but I don't mind having a subtle tip of the hat to recognize Fedora's pioneering role in this area.

Not particularly keen on this one, but it is a tangent that's perhaps worth sharing.

So far I we're still at the exploratory stage, no clear direction apart from:

  • No strong Fedora link
  • CLI, overlay, tool, computer savvy
  • Silverblue relatated a plus

Some more explorations with a stronger link to the Silverblue logo.

I don't think we want a too strong association with silverblue here - the toolbox is going to be shared with coreos

@jimmac are we at a stage where we can settle around the "purple wrench in a purple hexagon" idea?

A little straight forward, but if you're happy, I'm happy.

Yes, I am happy! :)

Are you planning to create some variants? eg., a more horizontally stretched out image would fit better in README.md.

We now have various variants of the "white wrench in a purple hexagon" and guidelines for using them in master. Closing.
