Every time there’s a rebranding in a free software community, a plethora of logos sprout up, and often ends up in a gallery of horrors. Logo design by committee can be a heck of a nauseous ride.
Hence my joy at seeing the first proposal here! I find @mrdrogdrog’s original Cody – why not Codi? – really cute and recognizable.
Unlike its author, I prefer the one with the pencil on its shoulder, but it’s a matter of taste, and this character can be easily put in many different contexts and situations. For example, the HedgeDoc logotype could have it rolled in a ball to make the O in doc, or even be “written” “Hedge ”.
@pixelkind’s proposal can be another variant.
Another reason I like the is that it’s an animal that is barely considered anywhere by the literature. Some suggested it was because of its promiscuity. As a gardener, I enjoy very much the presence of hedgehogs around, as they’re voracious of slugs and insects that can be deadly to edible plants.
Thank you all for your hard work and fantastic community!
