I apologize that the art team did not step up; we are a pretty new team at this point and a lot of stuff is unsettled so hopefully next time we'll be a bit more organized.

There is also the possibility we found the initial proposal pretty good. This is why at the time I replied and suggested only some tweaks.

Gah, I forgot to mention - you might want to cut the white outline that is around the Fedora logomark - it's not allowed for in the Fedora brand guidelines.

Hi Dimitris,

I also found the initial proposal along with Nicu's suggestions to be pretty good. It was clean and simple. I hesitate to theme the site based on the release graphics because I wasn't sure if you would want to change it with each release. However, if it is not a problem then...I prefer v3a and v3d (though in v3d, the logo should probably go on the left and the rest of the helix image moved to the right as in your first 3 examples).

I don't have a problem with the white border around the fedora symbol and can't find where it is mentioned as "not allowed for in the Fedora brand guidelines." Though, as Nicu pointed me to, the "Reverse Logotype Color to White" section...but to me that just reads that the font should be changed and the lack of contrast in the logomark was not addressed. I believe that as long as the white border is within a certain aesthetic size to help separate the logomark from the background and not distract/detract from it, it should be acceptable. My approach to the problem within the FC6 anaconda_header was to apply a little black gradient (which also blended in with the blue back color) behind the symbol are to give it a bit more contrast. If you decide to go with the FC6 header, perhaps you could try that. Another suggestion for your mockups with the logo is to put the "TM" towards the bottom of the "a" rather than the top. It will makes the logo seem less cluttered in that corner...where the "a" and the symbol meet.
