Check out modius's Character or mascot contest…
Lucee Server is an open source project for a light-weight dynamic scripting language for the JVM. We're targeting web developers.
What's your vision?
# Lucee Server: Dog Designs Lucee Server is an open source project for a light-weight dynamic scripting language for the JVM. So far as design inspiration goes that probably leaves folks curled up in a ball weeping. However, each edition of the server is named after a heroic canine. We'd like to inspire our community with a range of fun, caricatures of the hero dogs our various releases have been named for. We're looking for a caricature style that could be applied to any number of dogs. We want to leverage "our dogs" to bring some energy and enliven our rather dull "server software" brand. The ideal "dog" will be something that meets some or all of these goals: - can identify the breed and a characteristic of the individual dog - works well on developer merchandise like t-shirts and mugs - works in black on white and white on black (we often have a flat slate green colour for a background) - could be combined as a mascot for our existing Lucee logo; and changed each time we have a new release For this project we are only focused on "Swansea Jack" or "Kabang" (our next and current releases). We may work with successful designers on future projects to create a cartoon for each dog, a "pack of dogs", and/or variants of the dog for merchandise. An exact likeness is not what we're after. But the ability to clearly relate the cartoon to the specific hero dog is important. Would prefer cartoon or clean line art rather than a realistic sketch. Would like to avoid all sense of the dogs being "actual superheroes" or "caped crusaders". We want a dog that is not childish. Need to capture some defining characteristic of the individual dog and its breed. Don't include "lucee server" or the green brand colour in the design. It needs to stand alone. ## Lucee Dogs for this project Swansea Jack (v6.0) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swansea\_Jack] Swansea Jack is a retriever and the only dog to have been awarded two bronze medals ('the canine V.C.'). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat-coated_Retriever OR Kabang (v5.2) [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabang] Kabang is an Aspin/Askal who lost her nose rescuing two kids from a motorcycle accident. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Askal ## Other Lucee Dogs 4.5: Neo https://www.facebook.com/neo.cfm 5.0: Velvet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velvet_(dog) 5.1: Bretagne http://nypost.com/2016/06/08/final-salutes-for-bretagne-the-last-911-rescue-dog/ 5.2: Kabang https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kabang 5.3: Gelert https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gelert
Our existing brand is bland and dull. Do not look to this for inspiration ;) https://lucee.org/
