Proposed By

Chris Holmes

Assigned to Release

Not super applicable, though UI may be brought in line with color scheme, on 1.7.x and 2.0.x, when ready

State

Accepted.

Motivation

GeoServer has long suffered from fairly weak identity. For much of its life it had no logo. Awhile ago Refractions contributed a logo, but it feels a bit out of date, and it never got a full identity treatment, like a solid font, or applying the color scheme broadly. OpenGeo has put some of its designer time in to creating a new set of identity assets, and has additional time to theme the blog, website, UI and any thing else that may make sense. We could decide to keep the old logo, or to entertain other proposals, but no matter what I think it makes sense to spend some energy on promoting a logo and brand, establishing a stronger visual identity.

Proposal

If accepted this proposal will touch most of the user facing parts of GeoServer:

  • 2.0.x and 1.7.x User Interfaces - new CSS/colors, favicon, and logo in key places.
  • geoserver.org confluence instance - new CSS/colors, favicon, logo
  • blog.geoserver.org wordpress instance - new CSS/colors/theme, favicon, logo
  • update logos on various listings for GeoServer (ohloh, freshmeat, etc.)

The new proposed assets can be found at: GeoServer Branding

Feedback

This section should contain feedback provided by PSC members who may have a problem with the proposal.
