Haskell is looking for a new logo!
The great 2009 Haskell logo contest
The Haskell logo has changed over time, and the current “new” logo reflects the advanced features of Haskell. However, it is looking rather dated, and doesn’t necessarily reflect the mature Haskell we have now.
Honestly most of the logos there don’t look too good. I do not haskell by the way. Never did, but I found reading articles relating to haskell quite benefiting to my understanding of functional programming. Haskell is cool, it just lack a good logo. The current one is just this funky lambda sign that suppose to excite maybe Doctor Who fans.
Wow, this actually is one of the nicer Microsoft logos. Good work:
(Microsoft. NET logo.)
It kinda resembles the newer Microsoft logos like Photosynth, Live Mesh and ahh, forget what’s the other one. I wish they drop the word “framework” from their, erm, framework too. .NET is so much a catchier name than .NET framework.
Now I think Java has a really boring logo.
(Sun Microsystem Java logo.)
Somehow the Java logo resembles an Olympic torch.
Don’t you feel that somehow this New Moon Essence of Chicken looks kinda similar to a competitor product? Has the same tone of green. New Moon also uses a gradient in their bus stop advertisements. That lime-green to darker-green gradient can also be found on a logo of a rival product.
I think they can do better in -ahem- product differentiation. Continue reading “Two brands’ Essence of Chicken look kinda similar”
