Just the other day I wrote about the rebranding of Drupal. In that post I had guessed that there is a good chance that Drupal would be getting a new 'logo'. It turns out it will be a new 'wordmark'.
Over at markboultondesign.com, Mark has posted some sketches and thoughts on the process he's taking to come up with the new wordmark.
The post has only been up for a few hours, but there are already over a dozen comments. Everyone is going to have an opinion about the design, but Mark points out that ultimately the wordmark will have to be viewed in the context of the overall redesign of drupal.org. Perhaps people should reserve judgment until the entire rebranding is complete.
Bah - but even I can't resist commenting. I can’t help but feeling the sketch looks “dated”. That’s simply my initial gut reaction to the digital sketch - and I’m not sure why my gut is telling me that... but that's the first word that came to my mind.
