Marvin Humphrey commented on INCUBATOR-112:
-------------------------------------------

> Looks good, let's move this forward. 

OK, I'll proceed with integrating it into the site.

> Is there any reasonably similar open alternative for the font?

I looked for a long time and was unable to find an open version of either
Blippo Black or its close cousin Bauhaus bold/heavy.

IMO, changing the typeface to anything other than Blippo or Bauhaus represents
a graphical identity change.  The goal of this logo retooling is to keep the
identity intact but avoid the conspicuous amateurism of the current graphic.
Leading an Incubator logo redesign-by-committee effort is a task for someone
more masochistic than me. ;)

So, while I agree that it would be nice to use an open font, at least we
aren't any worse off than we were before, and IMO it's not worth opening a can
of worms by proposing a typeface change.

> I'd just drop the border entirely, but IANAD(esigner)

Your instincts are good.  However, this file is designed to be a drop-in
replacement for the current logo file.  Removing the black border or changing
its weight would change how the graphic interacts with surrounding elements --
think of it as an incompatible API modification.

> We should add the TM symbol to the logo, as expected by the branding guidelines 

+1

New version uploaded with TM added.
