How SwellJoe started their logo design journey

Summary

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to bring the branding for Webmin, the world's most popular web-based system administration tool, into the modern Web 2.0 age.

Brand name

Webmin

Description

Desired Style:
Clean, modern and friendly

Accepted File Formats:
SVG

October 3, 2007 is Webmin's tenth anniversary, and to celebrate we're giving our favorite Open Source project a new logo.

Make the next logo for Webmin, and you could:

 
- Impress the opposite sex!
- Win the admiration and respect of your peers!
- Win $500, a T-shirt with the logo you design, plus other fantastic prizes! 

OK, so maybe only the final one is guaranteed to be true.

 

The Fine Print

 

OK, so it’s not fine print. But these are the rules for submission:

 
- Original work only. No composites, borrowed clip art, etc. Webmin is legally clean and will remain that way.
- Submissions must be submitted in SVG vector format. If you’re feeling adventurous, make a favicon.ico, as well. Entries in anything other than SVG will not be accepted.
- Keep it simple enough for a T-shirt, coffee mug, or sticker. Fewer colors is better, because more colors costs more to print, and usually looks terrible. If it looks good in white on black and black on white, you get bonus points.
- What colors you choose will, to some degree, dictate future themes for Webmin: choose wisely.
- You may submit as many logo designs as you like.
- You may, or may not, derive your logo ideas from the existing Webmin spider web logo. Go with your instincts.
- We will solicit feedback from the Webmin community, but we’re the sole arbiters of the final winner.Judges

The winner will be determined by the following judges:

Jamie Cameron - Creator of Webmin and still primary developer, founder Virtualmin, Inc.

Kevin Hale - Renowned designer, Particle Tree blogger, Treehouse editor and writer, founder Wufoo.com.

Joe Cooper - Webmin developer, founder Virtualmin, Inc.

So break out your Illustrator or your Inkscape, and get started! Webmin’s tenth birthday only happens once, and Webmin has only ever had two logos (by some definition of “logoâ€, since Jamie designed the first one).

More about the Webmin project

Just in case you aren't already familiar with Webmin, it is the world's most popular web-based system administration tool for Linux and UNIX systems. It provides a graphical user interface for nearly every administration task on a Linux/UNIX system, from web service, mail, DNS, users and groups, disk and network filesystems, and much more. It is used in Fortune 100 companies and mom and pop shops around the world for all sorts of tasks. It has appeared in dozens or hundreds products under nearly as many different names over the years.
