Another Perl 6 Logo Again

May 26, 2018


Over the years, some people[1][2] in the Perl community have taken a chance at creating alternative logos for Perl 6 and as it stands, I have taken mine as well with a more simplistic and professional-looking plain approach.

I’ve tried to keep the theme around butterflies and this logo is more of a tribute to Camilia (which I quite like alot, though it seems to be an acquired taste!) than anything else. It’s just a simple concept!

All the logos are almost the same with one slight variation. In one of the designs, the logo’s central core is just a plain hexagon. In the other, it’s still a hexagon but it also resembles a cube (which I think it looks cool!). I’ve kept the thematic around the number 6, being that one of the reasons why I chose the hexagon as the basis for the logo. In this new form, Camilia still has eyes, though they are of the floating kind!

perl6-logo2

The same logo variations as before but with one of the alternative names for Perl 6: 6slang. It’s pronounced slang.

6lang-logo1 6lang-logo2

The two logo variations seem to look great in black and white (6slang version).

6lang-bw-logo1 6lang-bw-logo2

I also created some badge stickers (i.e. Gnu/Linux badge stickers) with the logo variations: 6lang-sticker perl6-sticker

The logos were created using Inkscape 0.92.
