fnichol got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Logo for KitchenCI, an open source tool and community for testing and developing infrastructure code
Check out fnichol's Logo design contest…
KitchenCI (sometimes called Test Kitchen or simply Kitchen) is an open source software development tool for writing and testing infrastructure code and software on isolated target operating systems. It was originally developed to test Chef cookbooks (http://www.getchef.com/), but it is now being used across different configuration management systems (like Puppet, Ansible, and Salt). Its target audiences are infrastructure developers, operations folks, and software developers that require their code to be executed in a production-like environment. It is a command line tool, the console is the user interface. Examples of console interaction are available in KitchenCI's Getting Started Guide, for example: http://kitchen.ci/docs/getting-started/running-converge. As a tool that a developer or systems administrator would use, a simple workflow that stresses speed is a design goal. KitchenCI tries to reduce the complexity of setting up and running your code so that you can focus on code design and implementation. It has a very modular plugin architecture which gives the user freedom to run their code in whatever environment makes sense to them for their project. Similarly the user has freedom to choose their preferred testing language or framework (or none at all if they aren't ready to tackle testing yet). In short, KitchenCI aims to give its users confidence in the code they write so that they can move faster, respond to change, and deliver more high quality products and services.
Logo types to explore
In the Chef community (http://www.getchef.com/chef/), there is a tendency to use cooking and kitchen metaphors when naming or graphically representing projects. In order to position KitchenCI as a tool that exists within and outside of Chef, we'd like to steer clear of those overt cooking and kitchen references if possible. The graphic elements can definitely be more abstract as a result. While having a punchy final product is desired, limiting the color palette to a couple of colors will make producing stickers and other print materials cost effective and easier to reproduce (and reinforces the simple aesthetic).

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their logo design.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
fnichol collaborated with designers to refine their ideas

And then… they selected a winner!
Redesigning our logo and the appearance of our name after 30 years. We provided samples of designs we like and she got it from the moment we started. Her design was simple and straightforward yet very modern. Kana was easy to work with, responded to changes quickly and followed direction very well.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
