Also I vote for OI's logo.
I would suggest a bigger font when the mane is at the bottom part of the design.

Also. Be sure the fonts are open fonts.

Well i guess the time has come. For the first time to consider using the revolutionary and not just evolutionary step. When it comes to FreeCAD logo. What an annual logo design challenge this has turned out to be. I somehow felt this is likely my last logo design challenge. Being actively involved and invested in. And basically everything happened, our generation struggled with. Web page, logo, general consensus, quality design proposals targeting FreeCAD we can celebrate and beyond.

Great and thanks to all current and previous years participants!

P.S. Whatever gets decided, has my vote. Maybe a small suggestion from my side. If this is it, asking for some variants might make sense and i guess appropriate license is needed. If there are any issues, it might make sense to try to tackle them. Maybe solutions are trivial. If this is more or less it, congratulations!

@AR795

If and when the time permits, maybe you could add the proposal to the FreeCAD web page you use for testing. And provide a link. To start testing the logo proposal in some real use cases.

I added Ol's logo to GitHub pages for testing. Here's the new link (older links are no longer valid):

IMHO if Ol's big logo looks good than small doesn't. Old one is more readable.

for some situations a white outline may work better

I think a new big logo should be in some place on the Webpage.
