Hi Fedora Magazine friends!
We have a new Fedora logo and we’ve got the OK to start rolling it out slowly, with its first appearance in Fedora Linux starting with F34 next month. (You can see my presentation to the Fedora Council on the new logo from last week here: Fedora Council Update: The New Logo is Here! - YouTube )
The Fedora logomark features prominently in the Fedora Magazine logo, so the new logo necessarily will change the Fedora Magazine logo. Fedora Magazine’s brand has always been a step or two distanced from the core Fedora logo, so I’m looking to maintain that distance (you know, like second counsins instead of siblings or first cousins or something like that, lol.) This is my proposal to that end.
Just some notes on the design:
I’ve reversed the dark and light blue colors in the bookmark mark. The bookmark mark has a gradient with the new Fedora light blue color, with the Fedora mark using the (same old) dark Fedora blue color. Usually we’ll be using the new Fedora light blue color for the Fedora mark, so using the dark blue here gives a bit of distance / differentiation.
A small gradient has been added to the infinity loop in the f in the mark to give a little bit of dimension to the mark for Fedora magazine.
The logotype for “Magazine” is Montserrat, which is the official Fedora font for titling / etc bringing it a little closer to the Fedora core branding, but, it’s at the Heavy weight which we never use in Fedora core branding (and I believe is used in some Fedora Magazine headline graphics.)
Anyway I wanted to float this by you and see how you felt about it, and if you had any feedback / tweaks / etc. you’d like made let’s talk about them.
