43oh PCB Logo

Recommended Posts

I think it would be great to come up with a logo specifically for the site.  I've just been throwing text on the board, but an official logo would be even better.  I'm by no means a designer unfortunately - but I think it would be nice to have something consistent.  We could probably use a mix of Silkscreen and Restrict layers, although Restrict might cause issues with placement on some boards (I think it also might not show up if you don't have a ground plane).

 

Here's a quick sample to get the discussion started:

I like it. I used to just put 43oh.com, but this is way better.

 I'll probably make a sticker out of this too. Thanks cube.

YAY! Stickers!  Maybe I'm a kid at heart, but I do love to put stickers on things. :thumbup:

 

lol - glad you like it.  It took about 30 seconds - I think I saw something similar on the logo thread.  I can put together an eagle library with a couple of different sizes if people like it.

 

I would definitely use it if I make any boards.

Well, I say this should be pegged to the sponsored pcb/boosterpack offer. User has the option of where it should go, but it's just fairly fair.

How about something with reference to open hardware?

 

(not quite there yet, 2 min PS job, but something like this)

I like the logo Rob - although I think you missed the "O".  I know there was a bit of a scuffle with OSI and OSHW over their logos - not sure what the ramifications are with using the logo as part of another.

I didn't see any copyrights associated with OSH logo (plus this is just an idea.)

Bottom part of 3 forms the "o", but you can do a regular 3 and use OSH logo as is between 43 and h to make it more obvious.

Another option would be to remove gears and create a different composition of 3 and o.

Tried out the store logo idea - getting the actual binary around the circle and meeting Seeed's minimum text size made it pretty big.  Here's what it looks like on a 5x5cm board.  I'll try something smaller like dots and dashes to get the size down.
