In #183 (comment) @pgno proposed a new logo:

logo/widgets proposal

Here's how it was made:

  • logo is just the letter "lp" in Ubuntu Bold Italic font

Who's in favour of changing our logo to this new one?

For reference, this is our current logo:

logo v1

I guess we should do a reverse image search to check that this logo or a similar one isn't already being used by someone else.

I've quickly uploaded the logo (with and without brand name) on my site and run a reverse search on https://images.google.com/ and https://www.tineye.com/. It seems to be ok (the use of italic with the word "Pay" obviously remind me PayPal, but it dont fell like it's an issue...).
Here are the two urls to run the tests by yourself or use a different and more accurate search engine

Yeah... Thinking about that, I think bitpay may look way too similar to the proposed one.

It's a similar style, but not exactly the same font, and not a two-letters logo, so I think we're fine as long as we don't use the same brand color.

I concur.

@pgno Can you upload the source files of your proposal so I can experiment with other colors for #281?

Hello,

Here is a SVG file with the logo in black. I've also add a test with another font (for the brand name, not the logo) for those who were concerned by the proximity with others brands. The font is Kanit, from Google Font.
