We'll probably organize this a little better as we go along, since I bet a lot of people want to have input on this process, but we wanted to start a thread for community input sooner than later.
- We're not sure yet what kind of "subtitle" Kodi is going to have, such as "Media Center", "Entertainment Platform", "Entertainment Center", or whatever (feel free to give your input on that as well!), so feel free to include any of those in your logo examples, or even just "Kodi" alone. You may even want to show a couple of examples with different sub-titles.
- Only submit art/images/logos that you have copyright control of, and/or are willing to transfer copyright control of to the XBMC Foundation.
- If your idea centers around the usage of a certain font, make sure that the font is royalty-free to use, otherwise we will not be able to use it. Even better would be using an open source font, so please consider those as well.
- Your suggestion doesn't have to be perfect or even complete, so it can also be hand drawn stuff and doesn't have to be in perfect shape. The design company we're working with will do the finishing/polishing necessary for actual use.
Note: In this forum thread we are ONLY looking for logo concepts for the name Kodi.
Please note that there are several areas, in these forums, in the comments of the blog, and on social media, where you are welcome to complain endlessly about the new name, the Foundation, how we came up with the name, and even me as a human being. In this forum thread we are ONLY looking for logo concepts for the name Kodi. Anything else can and almost certainly will be deleted. I'm going to post this at the end of the current posts and give users roughly 24 hours [from August 3rd] to migrate their complaining posts to some other thread. After that, I'll be deleting anything distracting from the intended conversation. - natethomas
