Hi everybody.

My name is Tudor Urcan and I'm (still) a foobar user.
I do like the player: its spartan and "dry" look, its small RAM footprint,
its remarkable modularity - all these come up really nice, in my opinion,
except one "small detail": its logo.

I'm not happy at all with my music folders being now populated by
ominous looking alien/perkele heads; so, because I have some experience
in graphic design, I did some concept sketches for a new logo, in the hope
that you, foobar developers, might agree with the necessity of a change
in this matter.

Those interested can find the sketches here
(a pdf and some jpegs, in a zip pack / 3MB):

Thank you for reading this.

Firstly, no one can ascribe “necessity” to something as subjective as this, not to mention inconsequential. But given how long the program has had this logo, and how many other people have registered mainly just to complain about being unsettled by the icon, I really doubt the developers are going to agree. But who knows?

I like the look of proposed logo. Adding smal "2000" next to "foobar" would be also nice.

Yeah, I should’ve said that, although I like the official logo and doubt they’ll change it, that suggested one is indeed nice in its own right – at least once you do what EpicForever said, and also drop that f a bit so it’s definitely lower-case. tongue.gif
