but ultimately they decided to move away from that visual concept. I think that this would be a great opportunity for the community to come up with a logo, much like the mascot development a while back. The announcement logo looks extremely generic, like letters spelled out with some liquid... there is no identity connection with the name, no real connection with the logo.

So this has been far from a easy process for the Team, and if we could have opened it up to the community we more than likely would have, however doing that could have caused so many complications in finding free domain names as anything that might look like becoming popular could be registered by those out to make a quick buck.

The one idea that seemed to gain some traction actually came from me working back from how the name could be visualised, I was playing with using remote buttons to spell out words, I was also trying to keep a link to what the project was, so my thought process went something like CODE -> KODE -> KODA

KODA

However again I missed a trademark registration that could give us problems, so then suggestion was made by another for

KODI

and based on what I had done someone suggested a logo of

However the logo no longer seemed to fit as well as before, plus by this time a number of people weren't so keen on the idea of using remote buttons in the logo or at least using them in a more subtle way.

So it evolved that kodi would just be a name with no meaning and was the runaway winner in our internal vote.

I think the kodi remote button logo is awsome!
Let the graphic artists add some metallic or something and i think we gave a great logo.
Please skip all the mascot scrap, it is ugly.
And no silly looking borders... Like the last xbmc logo.

I thought that I had this brilliant idea - but see I am not the only one.
Had a similar direction:
