Logo Requirements

  • vector format
  • square format : width =~ height
  • Eventually a banner version
  • Preference to keep the kiwix as symbol
  • Preference for something simple (not to sophisticated)


Hi Kelson, What do you thinking about of the renew the kiwix logo?, like this :). It's only a test and it can improve as much as you can recommend me.

Hi Wilfredo, thank you very much for your propositions, I find this is a good start. I will:
  • makes detailed comments
  • organize an IRC meeting about that.

Hi Wilfredo, thank you for your proposition, here are my remarks:

  • What I like : simplicity, black color, kiwi, the circle like an eggs.
  • What I do not really like: the font for Kiwix, the kiwi with hair, the big circle in the first proposition

I would say the last one withouth the letters has my preference... but I'm not really enthousiastic (sorry) Kelson 19:11, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

  • kiwix1

This is both a kiwi footprint and an arrow meaning the download of the files. This is a draft so the design can turn into a new way.


  • kiwix2

This is another that shows the kiwi, again playing with the shades there would be a "download" arrow, for the files. This is a draft so the design can turn into a new way.


  • kiwix2_1

A light change on the name

Images will be updated, the image history can be seen on each image page.


I like it:

  • Ark74 17:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC): On kiwix1 the footprint, the color and the sense in general. On kiwix2 the name upper and lower case play.
  • On kiwix1, the footprint is a good idea and I want to keep it in any case. The font is also better than in Wilfredo's proposition. I would try with a font near of the mozilla one, like here Kelson 18:50, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Could improve:

  • Ark74 17:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC): I know this is early stages, so i only would say that at kiwi2 the kiwi could look "cuteer" xD.

Would like to see:

  • Ark74 17:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC): Some how wkimedia included on the logo, some background related image, maybe the footprint could be on a book, or paper, don't know. Maybe as a stamp on the media wiki logo, who knows! ;D
  • Whole logo in black/white (maybe with a little bit shadow) or otherwise with a more sexy color (like here

I don't like:

  • The "yellow" color. I'm unfortunately (sorry) also not convinced by the extrem symbolized kiwi... I think this is too much. Kelson 18:50, 20 August 2009 (UTC)


  • Ark74 17:05, 19 August 2009 (UTC): I like it in general ;)
  • I have make a mix with (what I think are) the best ideas: image:logo_kelson1.png Kelson 18:50, 20 August 2009 (UTC)
