'''Go with this one''', although I'd give it a light Cyan bacground.  The other three logos of my creation still have their uses. After the removal of the words "OrthodoxWiki", the first one would make a great church flag. The second has already been used as a wallpaper. The third one, if I can talk Fr. John into it, would be a part of a new section of digitized Church Scetches that would be nice to add to OrthodoxWiki.

Gold Cross World logo

This submission is from User:HappyGrevling. He explains: "It has a stylized Orthodox cross in the background, with an image of the earth, representing universal, pan-Orthodox appeal. The logotype appears in an old looking scroll to give it an "ancient" feel."

Go with this one, although I'd give it a light Cyan bacground. The other three logos of my creation still have their uses. After the removal of the words "OrthodoxWiki", the first one would make a great church flag. The second has already been used as a wallpaper. The third one, if I can talk Fr.

Webmaster Constantine's North Star logo


This logo was submitted by User:WebmasterConstantine on Tuesday, Sept. 27th 2005. He writes: "It is a modified Alaskan Flag, a Midnight Blue field with a Golden Big Dipper. Replacing Polaris, the North Star, is the Blessing Cross. The Year 1794 is also displayed, all pointing to the fact that Orthodox Christianity first set foot in America in 1794 on Alaskan Soil, that Christ, symbolzed by the North Star, is whom we navigate by, and that American Orthodoxy points to Christ, as proclaimed by our early Alaskan Fathers."

Comments:

  • My initial take is this: I appreciate the symbolism very much, and I like the stylized font for "OrthodoxWiki." I am concerned however, that, though the official language of this Wiki is English, it is not intended specifically as an American (or North American) project. We are grateful to have contributors from all over the world. I also have concerns about the visual effect of the strong blue background and the square-block design. One thing I like about it though is the way it integrates an OrthodoxWiki logo with a sense of mission and history/heritage/legacy/the saints. It's a very nice creative effort in this regard. - Fr.

A usability tip: It's always useful to test/optimize graphics for color blind vision. Use this free simulator: http://www.vischeck.com/vischeck/vischeckURL.php Enter the URL of the current page with the logos(http://www2.orthodoxwiki.org/OrthodoxWiki:Logo_Submissions ), select a color vision type (try all three) and see if results are acceptable.
