#2

are there more details about this? what are people thinking / feeling re: SuperCollider logo?


#3

An actual supercollider may be a good starting point.


#4

But maybe not the image that was used on the Megadeth album.


#5

Ha! I hadn’t seen that. OK, well some way of finding commonality between graphical forms associated with a literal supercollider, computation, music and audio would be good. This kind of thing would make sense as an influence because of the loops and patterns etc:

#6

i’m not ready to open discussion on this yet just because logo conversations tend to get very passionate and overshadow more important things, such as the upcoming 3.10 release :slight_smile:


#7

Clearly the new logo should be the dancing parrot:
Cult of the Party Parrot


#8

Tuzki climbing the learning curve…

#9
