I have an idea for the GCC4TI logo, consisting of a handheld style calculator with a transparent case, allowing you to see colored gears through it. I wanted to get some community approval before making it, and also had a few questions:
Would it be a good idea to include an SVG version of the graphic? This would be useful for GNOME users at least (KDE too? I don't know if there's support) and would be much easier than having to create so many different sizes of the same logo.
Shall the calculator screen contain the text GCC4TI? This would make sense on higher resolution levels, but should probably be left out on lower ones.
Shouldn't the logo also include the 89 OS signing key at higher resolutions? (okay okay only joking)
Works fine for me too in Inkscape, after I installed it. None of the commonly-used browsers has flawless SVG support anyway, so I'm not too surprised that it doesn't work properly in Firefox.
I like the overall idea. Perhaps the gears (which are an indication we're talking about _tools_ for the calculator), are not visible enough ?
Also, where do you plan on putting the "GCC4TI" caption ? On the sides, so that the icon has a square form factor ?
What do the others think ?
I agree with Kevin, the logo seem a little bit toyish. I think it cool be improved:
- The calculator is not a scientific calculator
- The screen should display GCC4TI
- I belive the calculator should not be fully transparent
- I belive the the border should be thicker
