Over two weeks, we held a competition for the FOSS community to design a new logo for us. We want to create a more modern, friendly and welcoming image to use in both our online and offline presences.
During this time, we received several design concepts from the community. After pondering all the submissions, the one chosen was made by our volunteer Ayane, collaborating with our Director, Jonathon. The proposal was a representation of an owl.
The reason for choosing an owl was its symbolism in ancient and modern European cultures, Asian cultures, and Hinduism. The owl is associated with wisdom, good luck, prosperity, and vigilance in these cultures.
At Fosshost, we strive for wisdom and vigilance in bringing our goals to fruition, and we want to be a harbour of good luck and prosperity for the projects we support. That will allow us all to grow and become better together.
To complement the new logo, we'll make subtle changes to our website to accommodate it, as well as in our social media accounts and branded materials. The changes will be made in the coming days.
Merchandise with our new logo is available to purchase at fosshost.gumroad.com. Every merchandise purchase will help us support more and more FOSS projects.
We wish you all happy holidays.
