Bikeshed alert! We've got some pretty talented arty-types around here - I'd be happy to leave it to them for a bit.

The Haiku logo was not publicly discussed at all, but I'm sure everyone likes it or at least has now got used to it.

with another dark color by the user of the logo.

3b is definitely my favorite now :)

While I'm sending an email though, I'll agree with this :) As others have said, it is possible to print with 1 spot colour ink which is a good feature. The only thing I'm not sure about is the rounded corners vs the square separation between blue and white.

On the multiple badge thing - different colours are perhaps OK, but the design should be fixed IMHO. This badge is supposed to be the constant between all sorts of various 3rd party distros - allowing them too much choice in it ruins the unifying effect it is supposed to have.

Perhaps move the critique discussion to the cdt list if it still exists?
