Description:

The actual Tux-Logo seems a bit old fashioned to me nowadays. I would appreciate a more simple and clean design and played around with karbon. The result you can find here, since I am no skilled graphical designer I would make a proposal for a new tux logo.

Update:
Second shot is with more content (to avoid people from stating to "appleish", don't know know, why they think, that a grey silhouette is patented by apple). It should be a bit more 3Dish, also I can't go any further with karbon (now with inkscape).

Linux does not have a logo. Tux is a mascot, not a logo.

I think it looks great. I also think the concept of a monochrome, simplified tux logo is great. The comonly used cartoonish logo is pretty much the antithesis of clean attractive design.

I don't understand why anyone whould think it's similar to an apple logo. By that logic, any monochrome icon is similar to an apple logo.

I agree that the current logo, however cute, is a bit too childish. Can't say I'm happy with the too logos presented here but I like the idea. Hope professional graphic designers will offer their versions.

I see where you are going with this, and I like the simple geometry of it.

Back when Ewing did the lumpy-penguin design, there were many (many) competing icons. For some reason, the lumpy-penguin won out.

While this penguin borrows a little from the previous design, I do like the unique shapes. Simplifying the foot and making whole icon symmetrical is a great first step!

Don't give up on this! Thanks for your work...

Your logo seems to be inspired by the apple logo. I think Linux should have a distinctive look that doesn't resemble anything else on the market.

No it wasn't. It's a shape suggestion. I'm mere not skilled enough in vector graphics to make a neat "complete" logo.
