New badge for Yumi?



  • How does it look if the badge is removed altogether? Somehow I think that the mascot can stand on its own without the roundel, especially if you're concerned about trademark disputes.



  • @UniSuperBox a it look a little empty but can survive without it:

  • Personally, i think it just looks more complete with the badge(whatever that badge may be), feels a little too bare to me considering the overall image is somewhat scarce of features.



  • [small semi OT] I'm not so reassured after the @Flohack explanation in the Q&A 52 about that at the level of Telegram stickers for use in our groups, we are hardly likely to be sued. the stickers are not confined in a single telegram group (so there is not an "our groups" when we talk about telegram stickers) and I will not be able to tell or control what will happen after publishing them. also it is not only a problem about be sued... I (not ubport foundation) have to sign a "Trademark Licence Agreement for Ubuntu" knowing that I will infringe many points of that agreement if I put the circle of friend within the yumi stickers .
    so using their trademarked symbols against the agreement would put me (and not the ubports foundation) in an indefensible and irremediable position from now till the end of the trademark (or the end of telegram) and during all that time I've to hope no one of the future Canonical ADs or owners will intend to sue me.
    apart from the improbable (but still existing) sue problem, being a contributor in a free and open project (OpenStreetMap) of which use by third parties is frequently affected by attribution and license violations I'm personally against violate a licence agreement of an free and opensource project like ubuntu.[/small semi OT] so I will not publish/use anymore a yumi or Ubports logo with the circle of friend in it. it remains to understand if, how and when a decision will be made on the Yumi badge.



  • @Loops why not this:

    probably too much political 🙃 🖖



  • @Aury88 haha just a bit 😛 Make it orange and it's a win!



  • Aalso we could think to substitute the badge with something totally different. For example:

    Yumi-W&WObadgeiter.png

    this avoid the whole problem...all elements in the last three/four images in the right contain only and already trademarked by ubports elements so no trolled by lawyers and opportunists risks. so the secret and restricted poll can be avoided, but imho it should be a semi-official mascote so the ubports foundation should decide if this can be openly voted 😛



  • @Aury88 Hello, I think you should not complicate yourself too much, it is a hasty decision to choose a logo for Yumi, the bosses will be fighting with other problems and may not be able to discuss that,
    Take a circle in dark grey (from the Ubuntu touch color chart) put the two ears of Yumi on each side in the same color and in the center of the circle you put Ut, in white color.

    And you look great...
    Greetings....

    was this solution voted ?



  • @Aury88 No, it's a suggestion of mine, but a vote would be good,

    regards...

  • I have come to this rather tardily I fear, but here are my suggestions if it is not too late.

    I am not very artistic on a computer screen but in this case, I thought it might come out better for the symmetry if I used a gimp.
    I really liked the idea of the 3 "semi-circles above" but think it is still too similar to Ubuntu. I thought also that 4 U-people might represent Coders, Translators, Testers, &Users which is the community of UBports. By having the heads half in, half out of the containing circle, I think it represents that we look to each other as well as to the rest of the world at large.

    A major improvement to the design would be edging to the characters and circle, particularly on the last (Yumi badge) design so that it could be just the white parts and the edging without the background red.

    My favourite so far is the one on the right, just needs to the right colour 🙂

    I also like this one, but I think this is asking for legal issues honestly.
