    Original art only please.... Jul 7, 2010 at 20:41
  • Why don't you go with the same approach as the other websites (using a submission process with a cash reward at the end)? It seemed to work quite well and not cost too much.

  • Everyone knows we should have the Facebook [Like] button as our logo ;-)

  • I like this, as it retains the somewhat familiar looks of the current site logos. I'm not sure whether I'm too big a fan of the orange/red though.

    I like the first one, with the power button in front of the text. Jul 10, 2010 at 19:27
  • This would probably look better with different colors. I'm not a fan of the orange/red either.

  • It doesn't look like that this name proposal catches up again, it is not worth it to create a new color scheme for this. Maybe I'll creating another logo soon...

Here's my take:

I like Neo's logo of an ON switch. However that logo has been used on several sites, including one of the Stackexchange 1.0 sites onstartups.com. But I like the icon itself a lot so I worked around it. To me the idea of Web Apps is that they reside in the cloud. And for our site's purpose(Q&A, Discussions) I think it's fitting to add a cloud speech bubble concept.

P.S. I believe we're going with the Domain name "NothingToInstall.com"

For the actual implementation on the site, it will be more polished. Please see my design concept post.

Here is my set:

(available in SVG format as well)

  • Is that a modified version of Google Gears?

  • I don't know... I've never used Google Gears. I made this from scratch. Jul 7, 2010 at 19:34
  • This is well done but very similar to the Stack Apps logo. Jul 7, 2010 at 20:58
  • @Robert: It's not supposed to be... any ideas for changes are welcome! Jul 7, 2010 at 21:28
  • Maybe if I change the colors? Jul 7, 2010 at 21:58
  • There. I changed the colors. Feedback is welcome - the original colors are still available in the linked SVG file, which I will update later. Jul 7, 2010 at 22:41
  • I like this one. The middle looks a little like gears, but it's a quite generic shape so I guess it's not a big deal.

  • This looks a lot like the logo the API site is using. Sep 21, 2010 at 5:39
  • @neil: You mean StackApps? Ya, it's not supposed to be, but you're the second person to mention this. Sep 26, 2010 at 21:07

I really like the design of the beta site. The logo should be updated to match the final domain name of course, but I think the current color scheme is excellent.

    Jeff said that this design is reserved for beta sites only. We can't vote to keep this design.

  • Well, a lot of webapps use a star to represent 'a favorite something'. Jul 9, 2010 at 17:22

    I like the idea of using a star in the design, but this really looks like a Russian thing (not that there's anything bad with that, just doesn't suit the theme of the website).

  • What about this same idea but with the two shades of blue in George Edison's other design? Jul 16, 2010 at 18:51
