Some other ideas:

  • IO the moon of Jupiter
  • network/disk/RAM/CPU
  • octogons for the 8 in v8

Maybe something more simple?

I love @substack 's proposal but don't know if it will be easy to stamp on tshirts and that kind of stuff logos are mostly used for.

I'm with @substack. Octagon O, binary, 10, etc. Probably needs the full "js" as a kicker, but that's for later.

The inner star is an (irregular) octagon. It looks similar to Shuriken, a weapon of (JavaScript) ninja.

@kylebright nice idea, but I'd switch the arrow direction, as currently it's accidentally symbolising backwards (anti-clockwise) movement, which as a forward thinking project it is symbolising the opposite of what we desire to do.

@zeke wasn't that logo style used by google I/O conference at some point?

On @SubStacks' design? It'll become illegible at smaller resolutions and printing will likely bleed. Also if seen in grey-scale it'll loose clarity. Similar on @chrisdickinson's Jupiter design, although I do love that rusty red color.

Given all my words here, I'll work on a few concepts when I get a moment.

As a bystander:

  • Choose mascot geometry shape
    • Octagon — see Federick II
    • Hexagon — the de-facto standard Web-ish shape
    • other…
  • Choose colors
  • Choose style

The octagon is IMHO fantastic. It has always been the symbol for rational thought, and I love it. But it’s not stackable as an hexagon is. So we’re losing some points on the ‘scalability’ concept there.

@substack colors are fantastic, but work only on figurative designs.
JS-ish yellow-ish is by far the easiest path.

@kt3k By the way, I personally don‘t like the idea of JS-ers to be ninjas. Quick, dirty and criminal. (I love ninjas anyway). If we have to go criminal let’s go pirate :)

And a last note, the harddrive in @substack idea is perfectly executed but lacks of comunicative energy. Is io.js just a library for async disk io operations?

Got to spend a little more time at having another crack with some ideas before leaving work. Someone can polish these up if they say any potential, it definitely needs more time.

Idea being the octagon for V8 as @substack mentioned. Then the right hand side being the node colour and looking like an arrow forward before forming an I as the colours transition. This can work in B&W as well with some work and seperation between some elements. The "ribbons" were kind of meant as a way to show I/O without throwing arrows around.

@phpnode I agree, needs some work. perhaps the I is formed from the bottom, or not joined at all. Throw around some ideas.

i'm doing loads of online 3D stuff these days so i did this mock-up..

iojs-logo

here is the live demo & GLSL code

i think it could easily be simplified for e.g. a t-shirt print (something like a threshold filter : )

[edit]
threshold version looks like this (needs tidying, this is just an very crude example)

I like @zeke's the best so far. We should try to avoid anything cartoony. Node/io.js is simple and low level but very powerful which is why I would want a simple, elegant logo. The only issue with @zeke's is that it is not unique/easily identifiable. Perhaps a variation of this with a couple tweaks to make it unique.

@zeke's is really great but doesn't it bear too much resemblance to Node's logo style with the hexagons?

👍 @karlbright, shadows on the second one are great - the style in general works well as it can easily be flattened and look good as a silhouette.

Let's not forget the importance of how the logo will look when it's desaturated/flat/turned into a decal.

You guys have talent! Holy crap! I couldn't read all the comments, but I skimmed through and I agree with most of the suggested guidelines. I would, however, add this remark; the official name is io.js (all lower case letters), and a lot of entries capitalize the name. Shouldn't the logo reflect the name and, thus, do not get mixed up with Google I/O conferences? :)

On another note, I don't necessarily like the idea of having yet another hexagon logo, even if it is stackable and "popular", I'd suggest something different. Simple, but different.

I like @karlbright 's first scribbles, the third one with the spaces between the rotating triangles/polygons is something that has not been exploited much so far. They are in an octagon shape, but they can easily be abstracted from the shape since composed of other, smaller, polygons.

Like these :
concept 1
concept 1 2
concept 1 3

Ok folks, thanks for all the designs. I hope to see more of them out in the wild when people are feeling creative, and I'd love to get some stickers printed here and there of some of the designs.

People can still contribute to the thread for fun and whatnot, but it's gotten a little inactive, and with the merge of io.js and node.js there isn't too much reason to keep the thread "open" on the issue tracker.

So long and thanks for all the logo ideas & fun! :)
