Testing New Logo Designs

As I mentioned last month we are going through a process of creating designs for an update Eclipse logo. We had some great ideas submitted through our crowd source project and now it is time to test out some of the better ones. Starting today we are going to display some of the new designs on eclipse.org. Visitors to the web site will have an opportunity to +1, 0, or -1 on the design and provide comments. We are going to rotate through each design for 1-2 weeks to collect feedback from the community. I hope you enjoy the new designs.

UPDATE: Thanks for the feedback we are now testing 2 concepts.

    Is there any way to see all the possible new designs to leave a vote on each one?

    I would second that request. I am going to forget to check back every day to see the candidates.

      I want to get the communities reaction to each individual logo. I am okay if people don’t vote on all the logos. I am more interested in the overall reaction to each logo.

  3. Voting is always based on comparison. How can we crown Miss Universe unless we see all the contestants on stage? The *community* has to see all the logos at once. We do not have to pick one among them and but can arrange in the priority we prefer.

      I am looking for feedback and impressions on each concept. It is not a vote or crowning.

        Still, when you are A-B testing designs it is best to allow access to multiple designs so that graphics can be compared. I think what Velganesh meant is that the design could be great compared to an old logo, while being able to compare candidates gives much more sensitive feedback, because there is context. Since I can’t see any alternatives I don’t know if I like the current one compared to another.

  4. Ian Skerrett says:

    I don’t want people to compare. I want people to decide if they like a particular concept. If anything the comparison would be with the existing logo.

    I think we will have to disagree on how we are doing the testing.

      Hi Toby,

      I really appreciate your design concepts. Unfortunately we have narrowed the field down to four concepts and starting to focus more on two final ones.

    Where are they, the new designs I mean? Does one have to be an Eclipse expert to find them?
