Boost Logo Contest
One of the requirements seems a little onerous:
- Any logo submission that is blatantly racist, sexist, obscene, or otherwise discriminatory will be rejected.Well that eliminates 90% of my ideas.
If you win, you get a T-shirt with your logo on it, as well as a book on C++ Template Metaprogramming.
With the help of an artistically gifted cow-orker, I designed my very own logo submission:
If I were an artsy fartsy type I would say, "the logo evokes parallel themes - boosting energy - positivity - fundamental components - energy and attraction - OO, object oriented - incremental advances - separation yet unity." (Did you hear the one about the Zen Buddhist who went to Subway? He walks up to the counter and says "make me one with everything.")
Afterwards, I did some google searching and found a preliminary not-really-public Boost logo page (which doesn't seem available at the moment):Preliminary Logos. Wow, my logo looks a lot like some of their logos. I guess you can only go so far with the word "boost", the letter "C" and "+" symbols.
