On Thursday, the OSHW folks announced the results of their logo selection process.
The logo shown above, created by Macklin Chaffee, will soon become a regular feature of OSHW designs. You can expect to see it silkscreened onto printed circuit boards, CNC-cut into metal enclosures, and laser engraved onto just about anything.
It has been interesting to see OSHW supporters scramble to translate the logo into their preferred formats, including SVG (more variants here) and gEDA. It’s also interesting that the logo is so new that there doesn’t seem to be any consensus about how it should be displayed – filled or outline, with text or without.
Eagle users can thank Westfw for creating an Eagle ULP that will draw the OSHW logo with a configurable outside diameter. There is more information about the ULP on the OSHW forum. I haven’t tried it out yet, but I’m looking forward to adding the logo to my own open source hardware designs.
