Is there mruby icon or logo that we can use CC-BY or soft on the license?

@matsumoto-r
mruby member

This issue is very important.

@monaka

👍

@matsumoto-r

Probably ... this?

mruby logo

@monaka

That logo is used by NPO. We might be able to use it if we got some permission granted by NPO.
In current, it's safe we regard it as proprietary.
(Maybe they don't say no if we asked. But we should respect their copyrights and properties for now.)

It's very cool. What is a object in the jewelry?

toaster! :)

@mattn

I can replace it with rice baker. :)

+1 🍣

@monaka

@mattn, is it created by you?

@masuidrive

-1 If we create a new logo, we should open competition to public.
Because We are NOT designer. :-p

@matsumoto-r
mruby member

we should open competition to public.

Oh I see. It's a good idea.

@mattn

Someone, please make blog post to intoruduce the designer!! :)

@matsumoto-r
mruby member

Not someone but all mruby contributors? :)

@monaka

Hmm. I like @mattn's portfolio if there is no copyright/property hazard.
Some additions are in Japanese. Please forgive me I'm studying English harder... ;-(


我々もある意味,デザイナーです.今後 libmruby.a を使ってデザインコンシャスだったりアートだったりする方も,おそらく我々と違う意味でデザイナーでしょうけれど.
そこに段差を設けると mruby らしさが損なわれるかな…と.
この辺りには,"好いものは好い"という視点で選ぶ余地がある気がします.

🍣 for rice cooker! :-) Is there already a mruby rice cooker appliance?

@tallakt

mruby_logo_1

Hi. This one is rubies working as cogwheels. I thought that mruby might be part of machinery in certain machines, and that could be an idea for a logo. I used the Goudy bold font, not sure about the license of that, but the logo otherwise I have drawn myself and am willing to license under an open source license of choice.

Here's one more

mruby_v2

Even one more

mruby-facets

@beoran

Yes, this is important, so let's not be too hasty. Let's get many proposals, perhaps make a competition, and only choose the very best.

@monaka

I think we don't need to decide only one logo.
The important thing is to clarify their copyrights/licences.

@ashes999

+1 good discussion and thanks for publicizing it. I will contribute soon, if I can.

It's important that the logo not have too much (fine) detail, so it can be shrunk down and still look good.

Hi, I tried to create a logo.

GitHub Logo

The ruby block means "Easy to embed and customize".

You can download PNG, SVG, and AI from here. The license is CC0.
http://mrb.h2so5.net/

@mattn

@h2so5 I love it

@kurodash

me too!

@bovi
mruby member

Wow. I like the Ruby Lego stone too. I actually would even think the stone should stand alone. Really great work @h2so5!

@monaka

I like all logos in this thread. And especially @h2so5's.

@matsumoto-r
mruby member

@h2so5 great...!

@h2so5
mruby member

Thanks for your comments. Feel free to use it :-)
I made a little modification.

@tallakt

mruby_modified

The stone on the lego is nice, imho a good logo if colors wete inverted. I've tried to visualize what I meant, and by no means want to take credit for the design...

@ashes999

@h2so5's logo is awesome.

@h2so5
mruby member

@tallakt That's nice!
It looks so lightweight.
mruby_logo_inv

@h2so5
mruby member

I adopted @tallakt's idea and created a mruby-logo repo.

https://github.com/h2so5/mruby-logo

@monaka

I created 100px - 70px icon using @h2so5's design. I put it
here to reduce duplicate works.
mruby-logo-cq

@h2so5
mruby member

@monaka Thanks.

I noticed that the copyright notice(Logo by ...) is unsightly.
Does anyone know more permissive license?

@monaka

Thanks for your comment. I applied minor modifications.
mruby-logo-cq

@mattn

hi @h2so5 , I changed mruby-bot's icon in http://lingr.com/room/mruby
he will be appeared with !mruby :hello. :)
if you type !copyright, you will see the comment that his icon is designed by you. :)

thanks.

@h2so5
mruby member

I altered the lisence of mruby-logo: CC0.
You don't have to show any copyrights.

@mattn

Oh... so great

@shevegen

I like the "block" picture, the "building block" image - it tells me to "use mruby for building something", like building a house. Perhaps the red colour could be slightly darker, and the contours could use sharper black outlinine, so as to make it easier to see the border? Anyway I like it. Do you think matz can have a look too? The logo could be temporary until an official logo is decided (we only need to label it properly, i.e. if it is "inofficial" it should remain so until matz etc.. give approval.)

@kenpusney

why not choose the lego one to be offical? @mattn

@mattn

I'm not a professional designer.

@schmurfy

I also like the lego logo a lot !
I am not sure which one I prefer between the plain one and the hollow one, they both looks great.

@h2so5
mruby member

Here is new logo proposal.
Circuit and LSI mean embedded systems.
mruby_logo

Logo #2

@mattn

@h2so5 Great!
BTW, I put your icon on http://mruby.herokuapp.com/ :)
Do I have better to add CC by strings in html?

@h2so5
mruby member

@mattn I'll leave it to you. There is no copyright restriction (CC0).

@bovi
mruby member

I still really like the Ruby lego stone. But the cuircut is also really great. Thanks @h2so5 for the hard and great work!

@h2so5
mruby member
@cremno

I share @bovi's opinion but I noticed the stone in the first two Brick logos isn't rotated (?). If it is intentional, what is the reason? And might there be any legal issues by using one of the Brick logos?

@h2so5
mruby member

@cremno There is no deep reason for the stone rotation nor this proposal.
It is just a matter of impressions.

@bovi Thank you !

@matsumoto-r
mruby member

@h2so5 great log... 💯

@matz
mruby member

Which one do you prefer? Please vote.

@bovi
mruby member

I created a wiki page with all logos I found: https://github.com/mruby/mruby/wiki/mruby-logo

How about everybody just votes with his github name under the logo he likes best?

@h2so5
mruby member

I recommend circuit because it is recognizable in small size.

@bovi It is hard to choose just one logo. It depends on icon resolution or background color.

@bovi
mruby member

@h2so5 yes I agree. My understanding was that we find for now just a logo for the main mruby website. For a specific situation it makes of course sense to use a logo with a different color schema, size etc.

@tallakt
@matsumoto-r
mruby member

👍 to Block2.

@schmurfy

I added my vote for SMD 1, for embbeded use I find it quite neat :)
I like the circuit one but I don't think it convey much the fact that mruby is really really small.

That said all your logos looks great h2so5 !

@beoran

I love the circuits, and especially the small one. It has the hallmark of correct logo design in that it will work in any color and is distinctive in itself.

By the way the fact tha the logo discussion is heating up does it mean mruby v1 is getting a bit closer? ;)

@bovi
mruby member

@beoran version 1 is already released. Or did I miss the sarcasm here? (-;

@beoran

No, I missed the release?! >_<

@schmurfy

don't worry I missed it too xD
Anyway mruby has been stable enough for a long time for me.

@h2so5
mruby member

@matz Would you create mruby/mruby-logo repo and grant me permission?
I'm going to release the logo in it.

@matz
mruby member

I don't want to have too many repos. If it isn't absolutely necessary, can you work on mruby/mruby.github.io repo? I will give you permission for it.

@mattn

BTW, everyone, mruby.github.io can't use dynamic contents because it's jekyll as you know. So If you want to use APIs or something you want to call APIs, I can add it on mruby.herokuapp.com

@h2so5
mruby member

faviconBlock 2 seems to be the most popular.
So, should I elect Block 2 as the official logo?

The others will be available in https://github.com/h2so5/mruby-logo.

@bovi
mruby member

should @matz have a last word? He seem to not have voted for any of them. Does he not like any? (-;

@matz
mruby member

I like block2 as well, so let us choose block2 as our official mruby logo.

Why don't you change mruby organization icon?

@mattn

@h2so5 Could you plesase convert it into favicon?

@h2so5

@mattn this is favicon size: favicon
