Most impressive. :) I have to say, I like how inspired and edgy some of the others are (most notably 2 and 7) but the first one sticks in my mind as the clear winner. One critique/request: can you do that one using red and a second smaller 'moon' as to further seal in the Mars references we have going on around here? I think that might give that particular logo a truely "D" feel. - EricAnderton at yahoo

Yes, nice indeed. And I could not help myself but to play with the red Mars and moons idea. This is my quick and dirty result: http://peylow.no-ip.org/~peylow/marsd.png http://peylow.no-ip.org/~peylow/marsd-banner.png Could use a slight gradient for the red. But overall I believe less design, is better design. // Fredrik

Getting better! 1) The moons should be different sizes. 2) Try making the night side black, the day side red. 3) The moons should have the night side black, the day side white (or grey). 4) It would be fun to perhaps make it an animated gif, with the moons revolving about the planet!

Because there is nothing more likely to make your website look cheap and amateurish than an animated gif logo. Or wav sound effects.

Well, in this partucular situation, we have to think big. And big means, the D logo all over Jobs Ads across The Times, several different web sites, some of which are D related, some others like SlashDot & Co, you name it. A daily newspaper can't support a moving logo. Nor can Office Stationery. Some other sites can't support a very large logo, and some others can't support a too small logo. So, my suggestion is to take (this young man's, I forget his name) logo suggestion seriously, and definitely not even think about animated logos for D.

I was thinking about this, not a gif, but a flash animation, and not as logo but as presentation, a front page effect... The logo must be static.

I really like the second one. I think the first one looks like a BS website for some global corporation that makes money by coming up with business speak. The second one looks technical, but still welcoming, as well as being easier to modify (not so many complex images that have to fit together nicely).

Yes I prefer the second one. At first I didn't like the red tabs but having looked at it a couple more times it is growing on me. I think that colour is bold and distinctive .

Ok, wow. I don't get the dolphin reference (except maybe that it starts with "D"), but the logos in section "D" are awesome! To be honest, I like the first one better; feels edgy, and has a very simple outline, but I also like the symbolism in the second one. In fact, if you took away the red background, you'd *still* have a good, distinctive logo. I think it's critically important to be able to break a logo down to its most basic black and white shapes, and still have it recognisable (eg: faxes don't support colour, and simple two-colour logos are more versatile). Absolutely no offence to Gal (you do better work than I do!). So here's a +1 vote for the fourth group of logos, with a slight preference to the first of the two :) -- Daniel -- v1sw5+8Yhw5ln4+5pr6OFma8u6+7Lw4Tm6+7l6+7D a2Xs3MSr2e4/6+7t4TNSMb6HTOp5en5g6RAHCP http://hackerkey.com/

Those are quite good. I would have to say F (greyscale) and E (red) are my favorites. The only nitpick is that the category E items seem to be less than perfectly circular. That's an easy fix though. Fantastic work. --Nick.

I just want to point out that these are excellent replacements for Walter's own personal D site. But I'm wondering whether it's wise to adopt the Mars theme for a general/public D site. As the D language captures more attention, it would be best to avoid too much relationship with Walter's company (via Mars logo): this might create tunnel-vision in newcomers, causing people to feel the D language is of a proprietary nature. I think it's in Walter's best interest to separate the language from the compiler. Therefore, the Mars theme should represent his own D implementation. A separate D website under Walter's control should represent the language... minus the Mars logos, but with links to his free compiler implementation of the language as well as the GDC implementation. I guess this is more a discussion for the other topic currently going on. Just a thought, JJR

Good thinking. Although I guess it should be public knowledge that D is created by Digital Mars. (Or Walter directly?) So, that should be visible, but maybe not too prominently. And of course, there could be a banner ad on top of every page, advertising DMD as "the best compiler you can get for D".

More orange, night side-day side, bigger phobos?... do we need a logo or the
mars itself?! Really, mars is not orange at all, it light brown, rusty, copper;
phobos it bigger than deimos and about it's 1% of mars size ...and mars it's
populated by little green bugs.(some of you might think I'm joking, I'm not)

A logo is distinctive graphical element, it should not be the answer, nighter a
clear image of whatever it represents. Think of nike, it's one of the most
popular symbols in the world, what does it mean? nothing at all!
In my first logo sketches I never tried to represent mars, but D ...that's the
issue around here(and John Riemer said it right). Although, D has this mars
connections though digital mars, so it ok to catch both D and Mars into a logo,
and that what I am trying to do.
Can't be more orange. Orange is problematic color in design you can't use any
orange shade, and it leaves you with quite few color combinations. So mars is
red. 
There is no sense to make diferent size moons, we are looking for a simbol, I
don't think we are writing an astronomy book. And who do you think know all
about mars? how many people knows the moons of mars? how many knows the position
of mars in our sollar system? I think a little red baloon is mars enough. and if
you can read the "d" on it, you'll link it to digital mars. And if someone can't
find the connection, I think he's not ready for programming at all.(just kiding)

About templates. The first one is a corporate style, you should sell something
expensive with that image, and it comes with a 70 kb overload of images.
The second one is light and clear, i think it's best for D. 

Anyway, everyone has an oppinion and there are some interesting argument around
the subject... contact me if you mede a decision and you need my help

I just want to point out that these are excellent replacements for Walter's own personal D site. But I'm wondering whether it's wise to adopt the Mars theme for a general/public D site. As the D language captures more attention, it would be best to avoid too much relationship with Walter's company (via Mars logo): this might create tunnel-vision in newcomers, causing people to feel the D language is of a proprietary nature. I think it's in Walter's best interest to separate the language from the compiler. Therefore, the Mars theme should represent his own D implementation. A separate D website under Walter's control should represent the language... minus the Mars logos, but with links to his free compiler implementation of the language as well as the GDC implementation. I guess this is more a discussion for the other topic currently going on. Just a thought, JJR

 Java is also strongly associated with Sun, yet it is not proprietary, 
 nor any less popular because of that.

Hmmm... Some people would disagree with that: * http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/java-trap.html http://gcc.gnu.org/java/ http://www.gnu.org/software/classpath/faq/faq.html * http://incubator.apache.org/harmony/ But one of the major differences is that Sun uses the SCSL, while DMD instead uses the free/open GPL/Artistic licenses... So there is no similar need for a petition for DigitalMars to "open" D, even if the language specification isn't open ? But a "neutral" D language/library site would still be good. (in addition to the one for DMD, and the [future] one for GDC) Meanwhile, before there is that final / official D "portal", I think we can use Wiki4D and Dsource - just as we have been ? --anders

Both: "Java is not proprietary" and "Java is not less popular", because of the strong association with Sun Microsystems, Inc ?

We're talking very different approaches to marketing. Sun did this because they could (and still can now that they have momentum). They had lots of marketing dollars behind them to push Java through all barriers. Yet I believe there always was some annoyance to the fact that Java had so much control of the language. Walter doesn't have this option. Like other languages that have been popularized from such meager beginnings, it is better, I think, to make the proprietary connection a little less apparent so people don't disregard it as just another proprietary language. In this case, Walter has no mass of funds to market his language in spite of such bias. I believe many people don't like seeing languages which appear to be controlled by a single company (I don't; I've made D an exception because despite initial appearances it is fairly open). Microsoft can push C# effectively because it's presence is extensive, it's software is ubiquitous, and it's funds are practically unlimited. The same goes for Java to some extent. The more I see the digitalmars.com site, the more I realize this: the D language link is embedded within a commercial site with very little public face to show apart from it. I think the discussion in the other thread is attempting to fix this problem, and I think that is great news! -JJR

general technical hint: Please try to use a vector format for the logo's master - might come in handy for book covers etc. #1) Striping the "D programming" part and playing a bit with the colors - e.g. red Mars with yellow corona(light red/deep red/yellow) instead of (white/blue/grey) - seems promising. #2) potential confusion with some KDE logos #3) seems to be too "weak" #4) Nice idea, however the background requirement kills this logo. #5 / #6) Doesn't work for banners. #7) Defiantly an interesting idea, though it seems to fall apart. Transform the red part a bit and you get a "bio-hazard" sign ;D #8) Moving the squares - not resizing - onto D's path from #9 might be an improvement. Reminds me somehow of some logo design from Taiwan. #9) This has too few distinct characteristics. Combining #8 or the top part of #1 with #9 might work.

I have to say, I really like this recent crop of ideas. All of these are simply brilliant. As for photoimpact, you may have just sold me on it. If I ever find my gimp/inkscape setup lagging behind the curve, I might just pick up a copy (its much less expensive than photoshop by the looks of it). - EricAnderton at yahoo

with potential to be remembered forever like Apple's apple or Atari's fuji. It also connects D and Mars, I am myself not found of "D Language". I can not see D take on C as a brand, as D alone it is barely mimicking. And if you go and call it the D Language, well then you pretty much end up with "the D Language programming language", and that is just awkward :). I think the best name is actually "Mars D", it is short and memorable (good for google), no problem to still call it simply D if you like, it connects well with it's roots; Walter and Digital Mars. I repost my own variation of the theme. http://peylow.no-ip.org/~peylow/marsd.png The font sucks, I liked the one you used in the first post better but do not know the name. I have tried to keep the colors to be discrete, and no gradients or anything (Works in monochrome). I think the "original" design should be ultra simple vector thingy (Like Apple's post -98 apple), and then allow for customizations depending on the media (Like Apple using a raised metal apple-variation etc). // Fredrik
