FOSS4G 2011 Logo
Note that in the end we decided to use the Crowdspring service to design the FOSS4G 2011 logo. We even had a community vote to choose the final one.
Following material left just to show what happened...
Prior FOSS4G Logos
NOTE: Some of these are rough concepts, some are more polished ... the final idea may be reworked by a real graphic designer!

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE NOW GETTING A LOGO MADE AT CROWDSPRING
From Peter: Personally I like the idea of something that is similar to the Sydney and Cape Town logos, which incorporate the ribbon as a more central theme, and depict the Rocky Mountains across the top. You can see these logos [here]. The GITA design is along these lines, but personally I'd like to see a few more options on that idea, perhaps from Steve's designer to get some variety. I like the Sydney logo best, I prefer its simplicity and would vote for something similar in terms of the text.
I think we also need to consider how the logo appears to an international audience. For example the Colorado license plate is a nice looking logo in many ways, but probably its significance wouldn't be too obvious to people who aren't from here. Some of the others may fall into that category too (don't know whether the Interstate one is included in that or not?)
Note: The final logos must have the OSgeo Ribbon integrated FROM RAFAEL: I like the most the CONCEPT-COLORADO logo. I would suggest to change the font color to red-yellow to match the Colorado logo. Also to switch to all caps FOSS4G.
