Bug Description

Who wants to design a cool logo for OurDelta?
It could be something with a greek delta symbol, for instance... but we're open to any suggestions!

Then, we might wish to also have some banners that people can display if they use and support OurDelta builds, to spread the word.

How about a triangle (delta symbol) with a dolphin leaping up through
it?
Sorry - I am no good with art so I cannot develop a proof.

Anthony,

I like that idea. How about making it a Penrose triangle (appropriately enough aka. "the impossible triangle")?

Artist looking at this.... Andy Fitzsimon
 - Apparently, Penrose triangle is a pest in artwork. Would look tacky.
 - He did the coolest design with a cute dolphin; however, it might be better to not use a dolphin at all.

Ideas...

Base: Delta symbol (with thicker line on right hand side - a delta it's not a regular triangle)
One or more of the following:
- Something depicting deltas: incremental small changes
- Something depicting a river delta: where streams come together before flowing into ocean
- Something depicting community: people working together, participating, communicating

I was thinking perhaps a dolphin on a surf board.

Here is my take on it. The deltas in a circle depict the collaboration of the community. The cursive font emphasizes the community aspect.

I was thinking something that looks good on the web as well as look good in print and 2 color. I have uploaded an example here http://www.knd.com.au/images/ourDelta.png. Kudos to our guru Daniel Sim for coming up with this one.
