Discussion re: logo on Develop:TWiki.WebHome


For consistent branding we should only use one logo design. The current gif containing text "The official TWikiTM site is twiki.org" looks like a new logo.

I suggest to use T-logo-158x45-t.gif with this text (as text) below it: The official TWikiTM site is http://twiki.org/

The normal TWiki logo puts "Collaborate with" twice on the page, which looks kind of silly. The only logo variatoin we have is the T balloon without text. AC
The majority of sites will replace the site logo with their own. Therefore our official logo must be on the TWiki web home. PTh
What I am saying is that we need another logo variation. At least one without the "Collaborate with" text, and preferably a little bit more different so it doesn't look like a scaled copy of the version at the top left. AC
I respectfully disagree. Consistent branding is important, a consistent logo sticks to the mind. We should stick with one logo design. The most prominent place in a TWiki installation is TWiki's WebHome, it needs to show the default TWiki logo with the "collaborate with TWiki" tag line.

Those few sites that do not put their own sitelogo will have two identical logos (with different scale) on TWiki.WebHome. I do not consider this an issue. PTh

sounds like you guys need a third, fourth and fifth opinion - I personally prefer the logo that Arthur is using - but how about it guys? -- SD
I agree that the TWiki WebHome topic looks kind of silly (and visually distracting) with the logo in two places in the same page. What about remove it from either the topic content OR the top bar, perhaps using another image for the TWiki web that conveys that's the web for configuration and documentation?.

You'e saying differentiate between the product and the use.

"This is the TWiki code * application development site. You are viewing a page generated by the TWiki Collaboration Engine"

Drawing the distinction, and further distinction between the webs as well (now we are loosing web colours) makes sense to me - AJA

My comment: I don't care; someone please just fix this.

I also don't care.

The official TWiki logo ("collaborate with TWiki") is fine for the WebHome but looks stranded in the header bar. You definitely need more ideas for the header. Look here for examples and resources: http://codex.wordpress.org/Designing_Headers. Be a little more courageous and add some nice header art.


not enough consesus to qualify as a task - please discuss on codev, come to a conclusion.... -- SD

Moved from Bugs:733. There is no good category for this discusson.
