Hey,

I made this in Inkscape cause I'm running Ubuntu on an Apple iMac.

What do you think?

The design looks nice. I kind of chuckled though because the circle and curves are supposed to represent humans. The human that forms the apple bite looks like it has scoliosis. And the guy at the bottom looks like it has a broken arm. But seriously, the logo looks very professional. Nice work.

Would anyone like it?

I would, I am curious about how it was done. I like using inkscape but am not very fluent with it.

Very, very nice. Not sure if I want it myself, maybe in the future, though.
But, you know what you should do? You should definitely put the SVG on the Open Clip Art Library (http://openclipart.org/).

Very nice! One quick suggestion: remove the green leaf from above, then the apple logo is the negative space inside the Ubuntu logo (the positive space). That will look a bit more interesting, IMO. (You may have to futz with the arms around the leaf-gap to get it looking right.) Also, maybe adjust the red guy's arm length, it's WAY longer than any of the others. EDIT: Just noticed, the ubuntu logo is stretched a bit horizontally, you might want to fix that.

Still looks really good as-is though, keep up the good work!

Uhm, isn't the Apple logo copyrighted? I was reading the copyright information about Ubuntu... something about don't make things look like they have some sort of relationship..

Ah whatever, you're not going to get commercial benefits from this, so it should be ok.

Apple Inc could claim trademark association and sue you into next week (then again so could Canonical)

No one would sue him. He is not using this for profit, or claiming it is his original idea.

Lol, no I am not going to make any money from this at all...

Here y'all go....

I love the style of Inkscape.

Oh, and btw, I know that the red person is longer than the rest of them, but I had to do it that way because I wanted to use the Apple leaf of the inverted Apple as one of the dividers. So the orange guy would inevitably be smaller.

As a fellow Ubuntu/OS X user, I love it, it is really really beautiful.

I think I'll have to use it as my avatar on Ubuntu :)

I'm very impressed with that. Well done :) The only problem I see is that you have two 'leaves' in the logo.

Brilliant work there mate. I must admit though that I also find the deformations kinda funny, since they are supposed to represent human beings. Anyway I think it's a sweet-looking logo and maybe someone (yes, you know who you are) could replace the regular ubuntu logo in the splash screen etc for Mac users. ;)

There are supposed to be two leaves cause there are two apples. ;) Not just a thick border of one apple.

Sorry if I was a downer, it is a good logo and inkscape totally rocks. I know because I've done some coding for them in the past. go ACSpike, ScislaC, bryce, ishmal and everyone else :-)

I really enjoy graphics design, and I've always been a Photoshop user, but when I switched to Mac OS X (from Win XP), I didn't want to order CS2 again because I had a windows version, and they're really expensive.

So, I recently ordered CS3 for my Mac, and I am really comfortable with Photoshop. But, I downloaded Inkscape for my mac, cause it was free, messed around and found it pretty intimidating at first.

But recently I decided, "Look, it can't be too hard" so I forced myself to sit down for a couple hours and get fluent with Inkscape, and now, it's really fun to use. And with some things I prefer it too Photoshop.

For example, to design a logo, I would choose Inkscape, but photo editing, it must be Photoshop.

(Btw, I'm 16)

And, DoctorMO, don't worry about it. I figured you were just kidding around. :D And that's really cool about working on Inkscape. I want to start programming, (which is why I got Ubuntu for my Mac)

Good idea, learning about programming with open source. Hope there's more your age with the interest. And thanks for posting the logo. Now I'm inspired to break the Adobe chains. Hard to do when you have worked in the publishing and printing businesses, especially at my age. DJ
