Can you please link your proposal on http://wiki.tanglu.org/logo-proposals
so that we don't loose track of it.

>> Hi everyone!
>> I just uploaded my logo proposal for Tanglu, please take a look.
>> http://inkapnea.blogspot.it/2013/03/another-logo-proposal-for-tanglu.html
>> Some time ago I used to be a logo junkie so used every proprietary 2D
>> vector drawing application. When Tanglu was announced I found
>> interesting the project's goals and liked the design of the very first
>> logo with the doubled Debian swirl, not perfect but simple, pretty and
>> effective.
>> I like spirals and swirls too, so here I am, curious to try to improve
>> the double swirl design and an opportunity to try Inkscape for the
>> first time. So here is a diary of my voyage.
>> Some notes:
>> - I like the original colors Matthias choose for the logo so I decided
>> to keep the blue/green combination, only lightened them a bit.
>> - I decided to upload a “making of” numbered image sequence because I
>> enjoyed making different variations and wished to share the creative
>> process and visually explain some decisions, the play with
>> positive/negative images and a curiosity (logo number 9 – moving the
>> background circle downward casually revealed a similarity with another
>> well known project logo, also a great community)
>> - think that a circular logo is better suited for a community project
>> than a squared one (= corporation) so I stayed on that path.
>> - The “making of” is a shortened one, it misses some variations when I
>> took a different path just to come back again to the double swirl
>> path. It also misses the hand drawn sketches, fundamental at the
>> beginning.
>> - The text part is only for spacing reference, used plain Vera Sans
>> font, but this part still needs some love.
>> - I like very much the logo number 16 too, but found it too symmetric
>> and maybe too much resembling the buntu logos. Tried different ways to
>> make it more dynamic and finally came up with the spikes version (logo
>> 19).
>> - Maybe the spikes seem a little bit aggressive but the osteoderms are
>> ok because Tanglu will have the dragon skin (Konqi :-)
>> - At the end, inverted the blue and greed colors just to associate the
>> osteoderms with the green color (green = more organic than blue).
>> - The logo is scalable and editable because it's made of vectors, I
>> will send online the Inkscape SVG file soon.
>> Please let me know what You think.
