The current state of Fedora's logo
However, I don't like it. It's trying too hard and going against the trend of making logotype simpler so it can be used more broadly. (Examples: https://twitter.com/DIA_Mitch/status/1080919428856868864 & https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/the_best_and_worst_identities_of_2018_in_case_you_missed_it.php)
…Also, it could be easily mistaken for a styled "Sedora".
yup @mairin the direction I was heading was something like that! The ligature might feel too forced and probably I wouldn't close so much the upper arch.
I just read now your toot @garrett and yes I guess it was what I was trying to convey in my previous paragraph :p and critiques are always welcome.
@mairin @garrett @Pedro @sesivany @fedoracz Typographically, I suspect the f/d ambiguity comes from the crossbar being short -- most people write 'd' starting at the top of the bowl, so an open connection there, near to the vertical stem, can still read like 'd'. Have you tried making the crossbar extend further to the left? There might be room to play there, anyway...
I like the direction of having just one visual element (mark with lettering) as I think it makes it less complex and easy to scan. Nevertheless and for this purpose I need to shove my personal opinion down the tube and say that maybe having it as 2 elements not only make sit more recognizable to fedora users but also doesn't deviate "unnecessarily" to much from what the community grew to like (the infinity symbol), [my perception from the blog comments] @mairin @garrett @sesivany @fedoracz
