Create a logo for ooga ooga, an open source software development framework for genetic algorithm research and development.
ooga ooga is a project created and maintained by createTank, a software architecture and solutions company.
We're going to gather all of the results, discuss and decide.
We are open minded, and willing to venture into new areas should this description seem too constrictive, however, this is where we've gotten so far with the logo brainstorming...
We would like to see the text as a major part of the logo, preferably all lowercase, with the 4 "o" shapes (in "ooga") figuring heavily. That is, with minor play on the "a" character, it might be feasible to see four "o" shapes in a row.
We would also like a mascot to place alongside the logo (for recognition from afar).
There will be possible followup, as we will also need related materials for a commercial component.
We've brainstormed several possibilities for the logo and mascot - included here:
- oogaooga in text as lower case.
- Caveman mascot, with labcoat, glasses, pocket protector - very thoughtfully saying "ooga ooga" in speech bubble.
- DNA related logo (especially if 3D stereogram).
- Clean, minimalist, modern design
- Color logo with B/W reduction (for cheap or B/W prints)
- Textual logo with Mascot or other image for recognition from afar.
- Illustrator vector output
- Negative space is always good
- Don't really want a DNA inspired logo unless it is very good.
