[FFmpeg-devel] Fwd: Summer Logo version 3.0

I hate to be the one to start this awkward conversation, but this logo is a
pretty significant downgrade from the previous ones. The ideas are clever
but not well executed: this particular font face is difficult to read and
aesthetically reminds me of hairy legs with tumors. Similarly, the
logo sweating under the sunny sky is a cute vision, but these particular
images for the clouds, sun, etc look dated, like stock graphics circa early
2000. The overall logo looks childish and unpolished.
If we are going to be changing the FFmpeg webpage logo regularly, I propose
we have a vote/contest instead of first-come first-serve submissions. The
contest should include previous logos as candidates.
