Emu as logo|
I was thinking of en Emu as a logo for Qemu a few weeks ago and started looking for images of an emu to base a cartoonlike logo on.I'm surprised no response to the "emu" idea since it is an animal and the emulator is Qemu. A Emu with racing goggles or something might do as a mascot. Some people don't like "cartoonish" mascots for FOSS projects but I think they really send out a positive message that FOSS is for everyone, it's not some stuffy elitist thing that's out of anyone's grasp. Tux is probably the best example of this. I'll take "that's a stupid mascot" as a reasonable criticism from anyone. Does anyone know of another free project using an Emu as mascot?
In this earch I found an image on an Emu used as logo for the cpcemu project
It is an emulator of a CPC computer
I still think it is a nice idea to use an Emu as logo even though it has been used already.
I also have some nice images of Emus which I downloaded in my search.
I just haven't had time to draw a nice logo yet and then I saw all the other logo's come by on the mailing list.
