A MicroPython logo?

Post by liudr » Sun Apr 01, 2018 8:54 pm

I noticed that I couldn't find a decent MicroPython logo when I was trying to customize my folder's icon in windows. The only one I could find is this:

Can you really see it? Only under the grey background of the forum page. This is what it looks like on my windows system if I used it as an icon:

So I made some improvements:

Here is an enlarged view. As you can see, I interlaced blue and yellow from what I think as the Python logo:

So will there be an official MicroPython logo?

The orange snake was replaced with the grey icon as the official logo quite some while ago. I must confess to having some affection for the original - it seemed to embody a welcome sense of fun ;)

I have googled for images of Micro Python and only get the orange snake sitting on the chip. Does anyone have a link to the official grey 1 as I have never seen it.

micropython.org top-left corner, to the left of "MicroPython". The website also has a favicon, which looks kind of nice but too small, 16x16.

I don't like that logo. You do not really recognize it as an M and apart from that it has nothing in it that says "python". I like the original one more but it's of course more like a picture than a logo.

Why not use something obvious like this: a microcontroller with a python logo in it. or are there any legal issues with that?

I would prefer it had two eyes, suggesting a snake rather than a Cyclops worm. The python logo has snakes in profile, hence one eye. The Micropython logo looks like a snake in a maze, seem from above, therefore should have two eyes.

Having a high definition picture of a microchip does not survive scaling.

I am running a free introductory course in Micropython in a few weeks time. I would really like to use the "M" MicroPython logo as the only branding on the slides but it seems nowhere to be found.

Would George Robotics prefer me to use the current snake-on-a-chip logo in the GitHub repo? I seem to recall Damian making a comment at a public conference that the M logo was the new logo for MicroPython but I cannot find anything 'official'

What is the general consensus?
