Thanks to really helpful brainstorming from our community to determine what the SUMO project stands for, followed by invaluable feedback on the initial candidates from the whole Mozilla community, and of course really hard work by Tara, John, and Rubber Design, we finally have our very own SUMO logo to visualize our support project and its powerful community!
This logo represents the whole SUMO community, it’s underlying project to create what we call Open Source Support, and the help our community provides to users around the world. The hand represents the nurturing aspects of our support — a place where people come for discussion, answers and connection from all points of view and experience. We care about our users, and we care about our community.
The globe can represent many things: the global SUMO community, or the fact that we help people from all over the world. With the Mozilla manifesto in mind, the globe can even represent the entire Internet, in which case SUMO is represented by the hand supporting it.
How do you interpret the logo? Do you have other ideas on what represents SUMO? We’d love to get that incorporated into the visual identity and we hope to make it possible soon. Read Tara’s announcement of the SUMO logo to find out more about this, and expect more to come shortly.
Thanks again to everyone who contributed to the SUMO logo, and especially to the SUMO community itself — this wouldn’t have been possible without your participation.
