It would be great to have logo, to be able to print tshirts and do other things with it.

This page should collect proposals, until we find a good one. Where good means: is a good logo (can be resized, works in one color, etc - search the web for "good logo design" and read a few of the many results) and conveys the idea of the project (eg. should visualize/represent: "one source, several builds, several identical results", but other ideas/messages are certainly possible…).

Also, we actually need to two Logos: one for Reproducible Builds and one for Debian Reproducible Builds, which should probably be the logo plus the swirl :)

#10

A double helix.

Rationale: each strand of the double helix can be used to completely reproduce the other. Also, DNA is somewhat analogous to machine code.

See https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:DNA_icon.svg (and the category) for a schema of a double helix. (In DNA, the yellow and green rods come in four kinds each, and each kind of green is always paired with the same kind of yellow.)

DrawingHands.jpg

"drawing hands" -- nerdy M.C. Escher reference, reproducible builds build each other. I don't know how to make it into a proper logo, though.

Suggestion from dkg, hopefully more graphically-inclined people can make it better.

idea #16

"R" and "B" difference by Bernhard M. Wiedemann: https://www.zq1.de/~bernhard/images/rb/rb-diff2.png

#17

Inspired by #8, but all arrows pointing to the right, symbolizing that the same source can be built many times but all builds converge on the same result.

Needs some tweaking visually, but I think this idea can work with and without text, and both at high and low sizes/resolutions.

lamby: re: your logos: as said, #7 reminds me too much of the logos of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_Labour_Front and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strength_Through_Joy and then i dislike for #7+#8 that they both dont really work without the words reproducible builds". and then they both (to me) symbolize endlessly running in circles, and not many builds results in one result * h01ger likes the _ideas_ of #1, #10 and #11 but i dont consider them ready/suitable as logos _yet_ * h01ger dislikes #2, #4, #5 + #6 - i dont recognize anything in them
