Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to bring the branding for Webmin, the world's most popular web-based system administration tool, into the modern Web 2.0 age.
Clean, modern and friendly
Accepted File Formats:
October 3, 2007 is Webmin's tenth anniversary, and to celebrate we're giving our favorite Open Source project a new logo.
Make the next logo for Webmin, and you could:
- Impress the opposite sex!
- Win the admiration and respect of your peers!
- Win $500, a T-shirt with the logo you design, plus other fantastic prizes!Â
OK, so maybe only the final one is guaranteed to be true.
The Fine Print
OK, so itâ€™s not fine print. But these are the rules for submission:
- Original work only. No composites, borrowed clip art, etc. Webmin is legally clean and will remain that way.
- Submissions must be submitted in SVG vector format. If youâ€™re feeling adventurous, make a favicon.ico, as well. Entries in anything other than SVG will not be accepted.
- Keep it simple enough for a T-shirt, coffee mug, or sticker. Fewer colors is better, because more colors costs more to print, and usually looks terrible. If it looks good in white on black and black on white, you get bonus points.
- What colors you choose will, to some degree, dictate future themes for Webmin: choose wisely.
- You may submit as many logo designs as you like.
- You may, or may not, derive your logo ideas from the existing Webmin spider web logo. Go with your instincts.
- We will solicit feedback from the Webmin community, but weâ€™re the sole arbiters of the final winner.Judges
The winner will be determined by the following judges:
Jamie Cameron - Creator of Webmin and still primary developer, founder Virtualmin, Inc.
Kevin Hale - Renowned designer, Particle Tree blogger, Treehouse editor and writer, founder Wufoo.com.
Joe Cooper - Webmin developer, founder Virtualmin, Inc.
So break out your Illustrator or your Inkscape, and get started! Webminâ€™s tenth birthday only happens once, and Webmin has only ever had two logos (by some definition of â€œlogoâ€, since Jamie designed the first one).
