Changing the world. One blog(ger) at a time.

Habari needs a logo. My take…

I’m getting excited about Habari. Nothing against my “first love” WordPress, but it’s so exciting to see a new blogging platform “gestating”, especially given the calibre of the former WordPress core team members who have committed themselves to the new venture.

So in a moment of right-brain dominance I got creative and threw a logo idea down:

Habari logo concept art

Habari is Swahili for what Aussies mean by “AAYAGARN?” (How are you going? …Which is a rhetorical question that doesn’t need to be answered, but if you do you’d say something like, “Yeah, good mate.”)

I went with the voice bubble idea coz “habari” in Swahili is a spoken thing more than a written thing, and it’s very commonspeak. Which is good. The tagline “express yourself” is meant to convey that this blogging platform is about “citizen journalism” and getting your voice heard out there in the blogosphere…

Hope all that makes sense. I’d rather people told me what that saw in it, than me tell them… so what do you think?!

    Hi Alister

    From a left-brain perspective (IF that’s worth anything) it’s certainly better than what’s there now, Nice and clean (and I do like the green). Very 2.0.

    Thanks Meg!

    Yeah I think Khaled’s moved on from that idea/approach now, but I got the impression it was still early enough to have my say and have it not be too late to have done so! See what happens…

    You sent this to the list right? And you have a inkscape/psd of this for people to play around with?

    Very nice. There are some really fun concepts coming out lately.

    I’ve got a PSD for anyone who wants it. Just email me for it and I’ll send it out.

    And yes the list has it, and a conversation is brewing there 🙂
