Pipedot Logo

in pipedot on (#3HJ)
story imageThe logo contest had 528 entries from 127 different designers. There were so many interesting submissions, that I found it hard to pick just one!

The winning logo is now plastered at the top of this page, for all eternity. The website's design and CSS has also been tweaked a bit to reflect the new "lighter" look.

Not violently opposed to the new, but would have been better not to change it.

It looks good and it says what it's about, a good integration in my view.

Looks nice! I agree with the suggestion to darken up the reply button, but overall the site is clean and fresh - nice work. Hey, maybe we can keep everybody happy by doing an MTV and having hundred of logos, that change every time the page refreshes ... ideally they would each be animated GIFs :)

In college we had either MTV or an MTV-like channel that played in the cafeteria. It would occasionally show PEE BREAK in giant flashing letters in between songs. We could implement that as well for our pipedot reading, game playing, basement dwelling, denizens. :D

I like it. Very clean looking, I think it also gives this site an identity of it's own.

I really liked the wordplay about the pipe being "without the slant" (as opposed to a slash). That element gets lost in the new logo.

Agreed. I think it does lose touch with the slogan a bit, but I do like the new logo.

Looks a bit like the Chromium logo. Possibly a bit like the Beats Audio logo.

I'd have made the "p" and the "d" vertical... (Score: 1)
