I have received many great ideas for the Xen Community Mascot and am ready to release the ideas to the community for a vote. Please look over these ideas and select your top 3.Â I will keep the voting open for 2 weeks (Feb 17) and will create the final 3 mascot ideas for development.
NOTE: I don’t have visual images made yet so select based on the idea and we can create image samples for the top 3 and final vote.
How to vote:
- Simply put your three favorite ideas from the list below in the comments section (e.g. 12, 1, 4)
- Email me your top three favorites
- A Bonsai tree – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonsai
- Meerkat – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meerkat
- A representation that would suggest here is where silicon meets the software (to get the point through that we are type 1).Â A near transparent stretchable silicon chip in the background with the letters â€˜xâ€™ â€˜eâ€™ â€˜nâ€™ etched on it in hex, binary or just as printed chars or all in repeated pattern and possibly the shape of the mascot designed to suggest security is implied (like a lock or something more next generational) and possibly a subtle introduction of shade green to suggest power saving features are built-inâ€¦
- zen penguin.
Take the enclosed monk picture and replace the man with a penguin.Â I especially like the hat and hand gesture. See image below:
- When I think about a mascot, I associate the idea of xen two images: the Casper, the friendly ghostÂ (because of virtualization) and an animal, maybe a panda, in the lotus position, because of the pronunciation in Portuguese “zen “.
Perhaps a combination of two ideas be interesting, for example, a panda in the lotus position with a transparent projection hovering above your head.
- Turtle with 4 elephants on it
- My idea is to have an animal with the first letter is an “X” which make it directly link to Xen 🙂
- Xyphophore (Latin name : xiphophorus_hellerii). It’s a
(often) red fish. Not extraordinary, but the male has a long tail which make him recognizable and looks good as a logo/mascot
- A sitting panda, chewing a bamboo stick, maybe even sitting on a server
- A wolf standing on a hill, looking slightly up to the sky. Picture – Picture – Picture
- Turtle Splashing Water Tattoo – Picture
- Koi Fish (Tattoo) – Picture
- Asian Water Dragon – Picture
- Fish Skeleton – Picture
- NO ENTRY
- Pirates – Picture
- Cow riding motorcycle – Picture
