New logo / icon proposal

Hi!
Audacity has had its current logo for a very long time (I found it myself about 8 years ago). I think it's overdue for an update, especially considering the current trend of flat, minimalistic UI.

With the help of this guy I made a new logo based on the current one. It's very Mac-oriented though, so I'll also be working on a new one in the meantime. While this one uses the awesome template provided here http://appicontemplate.com/osx, version 2.0 will be a completely original design so stay tuned!

Version 1.0 preview, retina compatible:

Hello. I'm currently doing a beginner's user guide to Audacity as my final school project, and I redesigned the logo to be used in the manual. Keep i mind I'm also attempting to maintain the same colour scheme as the original. Let me know what you think!

I made both a colour and a black and white version of the logo in Illustrator, along with a 'reverse' version for both, so I'll post them up in the near future.

Thanks eijones.
Perhaps you could make a smaller version that will fit on the "gallery" page http://forum.audacityteam.org/viewtopic ... 67&t=83108
That topic is locked so that we can maintain some degree of order to the topic, so just post it here and I'll link it through to the gallery topic.
Thanks

Quite some cool stuff in this and the locked thread. Will the logoupdate ever happen?

The gallery page is locked to save me and other moderators time removing posts that aren't gallery images. How it works is; when someone wishes to share their proposed Audacity artwork, they start a topic in this "Audacity Artwork and Graphics" board, then either I or one of the other moderators adds their artwork to the gallery. It's saves a lot of time doing it this way.

Yes the logo probably will be updated at some time.
This came very close to being adopted, and I'd guess that we will eventually adopt something along these lines:

hudstock your logo is amazing. To me there's no question, this should be the next Audacity logo. It has everything a good logo deserves :
- Nice color scheme
- The first letter of the name inside it with a double signification (sound wave) in a cool curvy style
- The very regognizable general shape of the previous logo

I may just make the font a little less classic, perhaps with more rounded ends, which may go along nicely with your A with a dot in it.

I wonder if the owners of Audacity would actually consider using it in the future.
