Last month we aimed at rallying up the community to help us find a new logo. We created a blog post explaining why we wanted a new logo, the requirements and even pony up a price of a 25 dollars gift card to the playstore and it was reshared a few 100 times on Google+. We even got our friends over at iTechTriad to help us spread the word, thanks Jeff and it was a success!
Many of you answered the call and submitted your artwork for us to judge. We saw a lot of good artwork via #NewDUlogo and made us wish we could pick more than one but unfortunately we can only pick one.
Our requirements for the new logo was simple. We were looking for something clean, original and that still said DU when someone took a look at it. Again, this was a very hard competition to judge and it came real close with people even changing their votes every 5 minutes and lots of talk.
Anyways, we would like to congratulate the winner Rajath Ranganath! His entry was the one that came out on top and we will go ahead and use it in everything from our gerrit to our apps within DU 🙂
Rajath please contact Alex Cruz via hangouts or in the G+ community as soon as possible so we can coordinate the exchange of your prize and PSD/Ai/vector of the winning logo.
Honorable mention goes to John Xionidis who received the second most votes
Thank you to all who submitted their artwork! It was really fun seeing the community come together and show each other support for this 🙂
We have decided to go in a direction thus selecting John Xionidis has the logo to be used from here on out. You can read more about it in the link below
