proposals, hints, suggestions? Not sure which slogan is the best...

I wish we could agree on the version to go on with. After that I do the polishing of the final version, of course.

Thanks so much! I like "Cats friendly" better. With the Cats hexagon on the left and banner on the right.

👍 cats friendly, but I like using the hexagonal cat vs lambda, which I think is more distinctive (lambda being very generically used across FP).

Cats friendly + hexagonal cats => 👍

+1 for hexagons and "cats friendly" :)

If people are interested I could speak to Jenny, the artist for the Scala with Cats book (http://underscore.io/books/scala-with-cats). She's more of a comic book artist and IMO what's needed here is pixel art, but I can have the conversation and see what she says.

@davegurnell Polishing an icon at the pixel level is what I usually do last. Right now the interpolation is somehow arbitrary and not optimized for being show at this small size. The end result is a more crisp icon, what you maybe expect. Nevertheless: I'd not consider that final icon to be "real" pixel art.

The design process flows (as usual; at least for me) from top left to right bottom. In the first half of everything I tried a pictographic cat, which I abandoned at some point. I simply tried a few concepts. In the final pieces on the right, especially the bottom-right I tried to visually resolve the dualism between cat and hexagon in a hopefully elegent and simple way by integrating the former into the last - I am sure everyone can see the "abstract hexacon cat". I will wait for feedback and the polish the final piece.

@thoefer thanks so much. The polygonal cats logo looks cool. I like it. Maybe we can use it as a new official cats logo?

I can extract the polycat from the badge, no problem.

This is great.

Is there an action item for the issue? A PR that advertises the sticker on the site somewhere? Putting the SVG into the repo?

Good idea with adding it to the repo, I'll do that asap.

Can we agree on that these are the final versions of the badge? I rebuilt the original cats logo from scratch as @non does not seem to have the original version of the logo available. I´ll create a pull request in order to add my svg logo to the repo - this way we have a scalable version of the logo available for any other purpose in the future also.

Hi @kailuowang I made a PR #2554 that adds the new "cats friendly" badge to the README, do you think this PR addresses this issue as well?
