How will the final deliverable look like?
The final deliverable should be in a vectorial editable file format, since it needs to be converted to SVG format, and it should be of good quality. The Chromium logo is an example of a good SVG.
The license of the submitted work should be Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).
Submissions for new logo
Bromite needs a new logo. The current logo is a derivation of Chromium logo and it makes sense since Bromite is 99% Chromium, but for the sake of the project it is better to have an original one.
This post will be updated with further information and precisations.
How to submit your logo design
You can prepare a low resolution PNG (even watermarked) and submit it second these venues:
- by posting on the related GitHub issue, so that you can gather other users’ feedback
- by sending it to csagan5 via reddit; it will not be shared nor posted anywhere before or after the submission ends, except obviously if it is picked as the official logo of Bromite
Inspiration material for this logo
Logo should obviously not look like Chromium logo, nor some other browser logo. A minimal design and the current color would be great to have, but are not mandatory inclusion/exclusion factors for your submission.
For example the logo - in its most basic design - could be a greenish world with a test tube overlayed.
This information is mentioned mostly as a curiosity, since it is the most directly related to the name, but the design can completely ignore it; it is not considered an advantage in any way for the logo design (and it would be quite difficult to use regardless).
Is there a monetary compensation for this work?
Yes, a donation of 100$ which can be transferred via PayPal.
This open source project has little budget (made up of donations), however the project has recently received a donation of 200$ from an anonymous donor and there is an allocated donation of 100$ for the creator of the picked logo. The logo author and referral link will also be mentioned on the project README on GitHub.
Is there a deadline for submissions?
No more submissions will be accepted after 5 October 23:59 UTC. If no logo has been picked yet, this might be extended, but it is unlikely.
