How FrOSCon started their logo design journey

Company name

FrOSCon (Free and Open Source Software Conference)

Overview

FrOSCon (http://www.froscon.org) is a community-oriented conference on all things open source that takes place in August near Bonn, Germany. FrOSCon is a pure volunteer effort, mainly relying on sponsoring for the event. That is why we are always on a tight budget and have always refrained from seeking outside help. Until now.

The current logo has served us well, but this year will see our fifth anniversary and we thought it might be a good opportunity to update our appearance.

We use the frog as our mascot because of the similarity between the acronym FrOSCon and the german word for frog ("Frosch"). The color of the frog is the logo color of the conference's venue (http://www.h-brs.de/en/Home.html).

We chose the minimum price because of our tight budget as a volunteer driven non-profit organization. To make up for that, we would be more than happy to feature the winning designer on our website.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

People interested in Free Software and Open Source, Open Source enthusiasts, hackers and the like.

Requirements

As for the actual requirements we want an update of the old logo rather than something radically new. We have tons of stuff bearing the old logo that we cannot afford to replace. So the new logo needs to have some resemblance to the old one.

It is absolutely mandatory to keep the frog. Feel free to make any changes to the appearance of the frog, except it's color. And please note that we prefer an abstract look over a cartoonish one.

The biggest problem with the current font that people have is the fact that it is a serif font. The new logo should make use of a sans serif font or a custom illustration.

If you use an existing font, make sure that we can use it free of charge. It would be even better if the font were readily available in linux distributions such as Ubuntu, although that is not a must-have.

Feel free to make the new logo as fancy for web and print as you deem fit, but keep in mind that we need to be able to print a monochrome version on t-shirts etc. We might accept something, that needs two colors to look good on a t-shirt, but we would rather not because that makes printing more expensive.

The final result should be a vector graphic file in the SVG-format. We also want the file in the native format of whatever program you used to create it and an EPS version.

And thanks for helping to make FrOSCon 5 rock!
