Haskell logos/New logo ideas
The great 2009 Haskell logo contest
Please submit logo-sized (not overly large) versions of your logo with optional text, with a preferably white background (such as for use on haskell.org).
Please submit your entries here, and attach your name to them please. To be eligible, you will need to upload them. Entries not displayed here won't be eligible.
The deadline for submissions is December 31, 2008, after which the top few submissions will be voted on by the community to decide a winner!
Here's an attempt to depict the polish, elegance, and purity of Haskell by merging the H and lambda into an iconic gem.
Made in Inkscape, with an SVG available.

All credit goes to Darrin Thompson for posting the ASCII inspiration for this to haskell-cafe. I, Jeff Wheeler, just mocked it up to look pretty. Here are two interpretations:
Here's a icon-sized version:
The first two without an background:

A different logo idea, using toddler's letter blocks to convey the simplicity of Haskell. Exact block look and font used can be changed, but this is the basic idea.

"The lightbulb lady" (concept: a lady/lightbulb made out of an inverted lambda, hope it catches...). Font: Museo Sans 500 (free of charge, add to the cart here).

Made with Inkscape (SVG). Font : Calibri.

Lambdas in a circle:
Closer to what I had in mind originally:

Very quick attempt:

More of a mascotte, though she could be used in a logo as well.
Her main purpose would be to present tutorials.

Update: a combination of my two logos on a t-shirt. This time with function arrows to indicate the causal relationships: because Haskell is pure, it's simple. Because it's simple, it's fun.

- Yummy. What's the font? Is it free? Porges 21:59, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
Minor tweak to the above:
Minor modification of the t-shirt logo, the lambda was a bit skewed in my opinion:
And another modification of the same theme:

Another take. A bit simpler, more symmetrical.
The logo uses Kautiva Bold as (non-free) font.

- Makes sense. Comic Sans is the *Official Font of Haskell*, after all.

Logo fun using Blender:
I tried to give the lambda sign an alive feeling. --GokhanSan 12:49, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
- Middle one looks a bit too much like the ghostbusters logo :D Porges 21:25, 15 December 2008 (UTC)
- Hmm, I wonder if it's the choice of colors. Then again, with a minor alteration, we get a FreeBSD icon candidate:

More vectorial Haskell logo concepts. Using inkscape and the popular [http://inde-graphics.deviantart.com/art/advent-font-57338302 advent font] (CC at-nc-nd).

Find a font where 'k' looks like a reverse lambda (after removing the "stalk"). For example:

Illustrator, vector art available, apologies to GokhanSan

Inkscape, vector art available.

I'll probably regret this...
(Created with PAINT.NET)
--Reified 07:20, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
The general idea is that it's just "Haskell" but with w lambda instead of the a. The font here is Myriad Pro but this would work with any good sans-serif font. It's color-agnostic, so it can be easily printer, presented as white on black or changed to a different color.

Oh, didn't know png's would work. --Tindrum 17:12, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
It is mutually recursive... Here is the svg.
And the svg.

This is a variation on my Cafepress t-shirt. The PNG is generated from an Inkscape SVG.

Available as svg (inkscape). Fonts: FreeSerif for lambda and >>. Bitstream Vera and FreeMono for other (afaik all free to use)

Just kidding :P

I originally had no specific mountain in mind, but Don Stewart pointed out that this might be representative of Mt. Hood in Portland, Oregon, where Haskell was named.
Regardless, I thought a summit, bathed in the pure mountain air would be a decent symbol for Haskell, the peak of contemporary programming. :)
