[openstack-dev] [tripleo] Fwd: TripleO mascot - how can I help your team?

Team, I've got this email from Heidi.

I see 3 options :

1. Keep existing logo: http://tripleo.org/_static/tripleo_owl.svg .

2. Re-design a new logo that "meets" OpenStack "requirements".

3. Pick-up the one proposed (see below).

Personally, I would vote for keeping our existing logo (1.) unless someone
has time to create another one or if the team likes the proposed one.

The reason why I want to keep our logo is because our current logo was
created by TripleO devs, we like it and we already have tee-shirts and
other goodies with it. I don't see any good reason to change it.

Discussion is open and we'll vote as a team.

Hi Emilien,

I’m following up on the much-debated TripleO logo. I’d like to help your
team reach a solution that makes them happy but still fits within the
family of logos we’re using at the PTG and going forward. Here’s what our
illustrators came up with, which hides an “O” shape in the owl (face and
wing arcs).

At this point, I don’t have quorum from your team (I got a lot of
conflicting feedback, most of which was “don’t like” but not actionable for
the illustrators to make a revision). At the PTG, we’ll have mascot
stickers and signage for all teams except for Ironic and TripleO, since
we’re still waiting on your teams to make a final decision.

May I recommend that your team choose one person (or a small group of no
more than three) to finalize this? I was able to work through all of
Swift’s issues with just a quick 15-minute chat with John Dickinson and I’d
like to believe we can solve this for TripleO as well.

We know some of your team has expressed concern over retiring the existing
mascot. It’s not our intention to make anyone “get rid of” a beloved icon.
Your team can certainly print it on vintage items like shirts and stickers.
But for official channels like the website, we need a logo to represent
TripleO that’s cohesive with the rest of the set.

Perhaps when you’re face to face with your team at the PTG, you can discuss
and hopefully render a final decision to either accept this as a logo, or
determine a few people willing to make any final changes with me?

Thanks in advance for your help!
