I think the ⟨æ⟩ needs to be shifted a touch to the right for the curve
of the ⟨e⟩ to feel right with the curve of the ⟨@⟩. Otherwise, I like it
a lot :-).

I love this! I particularly like the white-on-black logo because Aerc
runs in a terminal, but I think they are both great.

I have refined the curves a bit and made the logo square.

Hi all,

I have made another variant of the logo which should be usable as an XDG
icon and possibly for website logos, etc.

http://files.diabeteman.com/aerc-logo-v3.svg

By the way, we did not decide on the contest conditions/rules. How
should we proceed?

Uhhh! pretty! Could you make it square?

To be honest, I expected at least three contestants… I can make a poll
again.

Oh I love this. I do think the SVG version could stand to have a
slightly bolder font-face (or however you would refer to making the
characters a bit *thicker*) and being more squared off. Just my
thoughts :)

Done: http://files.diabeteman.com/aerc-logo-v4.svg

Maybe the text is now too big, I could scale it down a bit compared to
the mini terminal background.

A bit, yeah. It seemed a little to generic, like perhaps could have been
a styled Arch Linux thing or something. I added the curve at the top,
and the little flick curve at the bottom, just to kinda go with the
curvyness of the letters of "aerc".

> but I think we need at least an SVG to go with ^^

Fair enough. Maybe I'll try some other time. I had in mind some kind of
curvy fountain pen style "A" with that flick. Again, something unique.

btw, I like Robin's v2 the most out of all his versions. v4's coloured
inner borders not particularly.

I have made a v5 with a gray logo to render well on both light and dark
backgrounds. And an icon version enclosed in a mini terminal.

http://files.diabeteman.com/aerc-logo-v5.svg
http://files.diabeteman.com/aerc-icon-v5.svg

What do you all think?

Could someone submit at least a third proposition so we can have a vote
:)

Thanks all!

This fails W3C’s content-accessibility guidelines (WCAG) for color
contrast. The WCAG specifies that colors must (AA) have at least a 4.5∶1
contrast ratio, but should (AAA) have at least a 7∶1 ratio. 
Unfortunately, though, this design has a 3.95∶1 ratio.

> http://files.diabeteman.com/aerc-icon-v5.svg

I love this. (also it has a ratio of 4.72∶1, which is ok)

Sorry, I don't have any ideas for another icon, but I'd just like to say
that I think the v4 "terminal" looks better than the v5, especially if
it's going to be a small icon.

Can we also have a vote for the colour of the background? I'm quite
partial to purple :)
