Status of the upcoming SUMO project logo

A few weeks ago, creative extraordinaire Tara and I took on the fun task to create a logo to visually represent the SUMO community support project. In order to get a logo that truly captures the core values of SUMO, Tara initiated the process of collecting feedback from the community, asking for inspirational words, ideas, and even design concepts that could be incorporated into the final logo. I did the same in the newsgroup and in the contributor forum, and together we collected a massive amount of thoughts and ideas that really helped us write the creative brief that will be used by the design firm responsible for creating our logo (the same awesome people that created the logo for QMO).

Some examples of words that describe SUMO: community, global, teamwork, problem-solving, communication, open, information exchange, open-source, collaboration, help, personal, quality, support.

To those who provided feedback and thoughts about SUMO and the words that describe the community project: thank you! Stay tuned for some design concepts for the logo soon…
