Some Audacity logos proposed by the Audacity community:
Hello. Long-time user, first-time poster.
Here’s yet another unsolicited logo redesign to add to the pile.
Colour on top, Mono below.
Briefly: shapes have been drastically streamlined, colours dialed down aiming for a more professional look while still being approachable.
Tried to keep the silhouette and colour scheme similar enough to the venerable original to retain brand recognition.
Font is Archivo Bold -
Keep up the excellent work all.
Hello incredible team, I was playing around with the logo, came up with this, is it something you like?
I am currently making redesigns of several different logos for the month of October and I made this one for Audacity.
Its more or less a “Simplified” version.
My versions of ‘Modern’ audacity logos
(with more variations)
The more I look at hudstock’s logo the more I find it visual cues that are right on point with the application.
To add to my
The smooth sound curve suggests a smooth and satisfying sound quality, where the original red sound wave looks aggressive to the ear and “low poly”, which is synonym to low quality
the dot looks like a drop, as if the headset is dropping some bass
So it’s a very visual way of representing a smooth sound and would I add, is even prone to be animated, were …
Hello everyone, I decided to try to make my own logo for Audacity.
Logo-wise, I tried to make it simple, while also trying to make it noticeable. There will be two versions of the logo, but both of them have the distinct “waveform bars” logo sort of thing. Feel free to pick one that suits you best.
This is my first time creating and designing a logo, so I am pretty sure mine is still not perfect. Suggestions welcomed! (especially the logo)
(with more vartiations)
like many other people I recently watched tantacruls video and got very excited about the future of Audacity.
I was motivated to design a simplified logo, that sticks relatively close to the original and is still very recognizable, but takes some modern design cues from the Musescore logo.
Hope you like it…
Hey Audacity users!
I’m Ross, a designer at Zenith, a small design team based in Scotland.
One night, after watching the (brilliant) video by Tantacrul on Audacity, I had the idea to redesign the Audacity branding. So here we go!
The main things that really needed to be achieved in the redesign were:
Simplified branding, while retaining the charm
Modernising the current layouts and designs
Making it look more professional
I had several ideas I developed, but chose this:
(with more variations)
So I made my version of a “modern overhaul” for Audacity, because I was bored while watching Tantacrul’s video. (

Hi, I really appreciate this program and the work of all the people who develop it. There is only one thing that I have always found really horrible: the logo. So, to have fun, I decided to create a very simple one that I could like more. I don’t demand anything: probably some of you will like it even less than the other, but I still want to donate it to the community. I don’t know if this is the right place. I didn’t understand how to contact the administrators. Anyway … You are free to do what…
The current Audacity logo is really recognizable. It has been what it is for so many years it’s not a wise idea to totally reshape it into another design.
My goal was to stick as much to the old logo idea and redesign it so it catches up with modern graphic design standards.
My logo proposal is flat, brighter than the current one. I wanted to remake headphones shape and utilize a waveform in a minimal, easy to read style. Brighter colors indicate that its the interface is simple and user-frien…
Here is my Audacity logo redesign proposal. I know there are many. This one is certainly different that the rest. Here are some of my thoughts.
The logomark is a stylized waveform utilizing negative space to create an “A” for Audacity. The waveform is also an ode to the current Audicatiy ideogram.
The goal for the logo design was to capture what Audacity is all about. Play, record, and edit sound. A waveform was already apart of the Audacity logo and with some adjustments can be the …

First a little about me. This is my first post here. I’ve used Audacity along with many other audio editing software out there and I can say Audacity really does a lot of the work I want BUT it does it without all the extra bells and whistles I don’t need. That’s great. There is one problem though… Audacity has a… well… 90’s look! This makes it feel cheap. It makes you want to go and invest the money in software you really don’t need! Theres nothing I can do to help with the actual GUI of the so…
Hello there folks! I’ve been using Audacity for quite some time now and I feel it’s very popular for an open-source application. I truly believe it’s amazing how a community can work so well together to create a program such as this. It’s my senior year in college and I’m looking to get involved in some open-source projects such as this one. I have a focus in graphic design and I love branding…which brings me to this new topic I don’t believe has been brought up or at least not in a while:
