The Philly JUG has a New Logo!

A polished and professional logo is important to the identity of any non-trivial effort. Although Java user groups are community efforts, they are no exception. In fact the largest and most successful JUGs in the world almost invariably have a nice logo.

As part of our ongoing revitalization effort, it made total sense to do the same for the Philly JUG. I am proud to say my company CapTech donated design time for the new Philly JUG logo. Below is the high resolution version of the logo.

It seemed like a pretty natural idea to use the iconic Philadelphia Liberty Bell using the style, color and script of the official Java coffee cup logo. My fellow JUG leaders Paul Snyder and Jason Young provided the cool concept to the designers. The logo is now proudly incorporated into our Meetup site as well as our Twitter account.

Besides the primary logo there are the following variants (all are high resolution images):

All of the logos can be browsed and downloaded from here. You should feel free to proudly use the logo. I personally printed out some cool stickers using StickerMule that I will bring as giveaways to the next meeting I go to. For inspiration we have a document with usage suggestions for the logo.

Enjoy!
