Hi Drew,  this look really nice.  A few comments for your consideration:

1) Can we get a square version as well?  This seems to be the standard
for profile images in social networking sites like Twitter and
Google+.  We could use the square logo in any "official" accounts that
the project manages.

2) On the banner logo you say "Coming... Winter 2012".  This may be
true in the Northern Hemisphere.  But I hope it is still summer in
Brazil, South Africa and Australia when we release 3.4.  So maybe just
say "Coming soon" or something that works everywhere?
