Wiki Logo

InfoInfo
Search:    

The arrow and circle logo for the wiki is designed to evoke the signs for bike circles and roundabouts that are littered about Davis. The logo often changes for holidays. Upload a logo here for an upcoming holiday and it will be used! Don't worry about formatting or other technical details, as it can be converted into something that works. You also might want to leave JabberWokky a message, especially if it's a last minute upload.

History

This is the very first logo used on the Davis Wiki. It was used along with plain text.

circle.png

It was supposed to remind you of the signs for bike circles and roundabouts that are littered about Davis:

round_sign_2.JPGA typical roundabout sign.

This logo was designed for the new theme:

daviswiki.png

You can grab a full page pdf of the logo (logo.pdf) and also the same thing in flash (logo.swf) and the same thing in SVG (logo.svg)

In my opinion, this logo looks better with a tag line:

JabberWokky is trying to include more holidays from different cultures found in Davis. If you have an upcoming holiday you know of, please upload a logo (and include a date)!

Christmas 2008

As they are overlapping holidays this year, Christmas and Chanukah should probably share the logo

Suggested holiday logos

If you'd like to make a logo for the wiki, just upload it to this page sometime around the date of a holiday. If it's good we'll throw it up as the logo.

Other ideas

This one was a brainstorm idea that made PhilipNeustrom piss his pants:

bikelogo.png

Here is another logo idea, featuring a water tower (which was rejected because it looks like some kind of jelly fish) Maybe an alien landing craft?:

tower.png

Here is a takeoff on the "Welcome to Davis" sign:

sign.pngPlain version of the sign on the Front Page. That one is severely touched up in GIMP. Grab a PDF [WWW]here.

What do you think about the logos? Any ideas?

2004-08-01 05:14:11   I like the "Welcome to Davis Wiki" sign, but I think it'd look better if we actually vandalized a sign. - PhilipNeustrom


2004-08-01 07:34:54   Also, Mike, the new sign actually smashes into the login boxes when you're not logged in - PhilipNeustrom


2004-08-01 18:48:18   Sorry about that. You see, at my high resolution, it's hard to fathom there won't be room for something on someone's screen. But I'll take it off for now until we figure out if it even belongs anywhere. - MikeIvanov


2004-11-26 20:57:21   I live the bicycle friendle wiki one - RohiniJasavala


2004-12-19 04:50:22   wow. i got to be the first person to see the christmas logo. i honestly feel very honored - RobRoy


2005-02-13 16:34:03   the valentines logo is adorable! —RohiniJasavala


2005-02-13 17:18:23   Gotta love the logos. —JaimeRaba


2005-02-13 23:10:48   Thanks guys, I love making them. —MikeIvanov


2005-02-13 23:59:43   I <3 the green one —MarieHuynh


2005-03-17 17:34:59   i saw that Berkeley wiki page right now < [WWW]http://www.csua.berkeley.edu/~tobin/wiki/moin.cgi > and you guys at Davis Wiki have beat them up hands down. That's awsome that we are actually better than Berkeley at something. Long live wiki! —GeorgejAndrews


2005-03-19 13:13:30   I just checked out the Berkeley page as well and can't believe how...dull...it is! —BevSykes


2005-03-28 01:18:49   I love the Easter logo! Great job, Mike!! —AlphaDog


2005-04-06 16:49:17   We have a request for a Picnic Day 2005 logo! Anyone? —KalenRidenour


2005-04-06 16:55:51   I'm on it. —MikeIvanov


2005-05-06 09:40:31   Mike...I totally <3 the WEF logo, it's perfect! And I just saw the Picnic Day one that I requested...also bomb! Great job! —KalenRidenour


2005-05-07 16:36:50   Thanks, I really like how those two came out. —MikeIvanov


2005-07-22 16:14:19   Any chance of getting some DavisWiki Logo window stickers? White on clear, possibly with daviswiki.org below. —TarZxf


2005-07-22 16:17:43   We were looking into that a while ago. Clear cling stickers are pretty pricy, though. Maybe someone's got a hookup? —MikeIvanov


2005-09-19 23:17:37   I like all the theme logos. —KenjiYamada


2005-09-19 23:21:08   Thank you, thank you. Any requests for upcoming holidays that I don't know about? —MikeIvanov


2005-09-19 23:48:30   Thank you guys! Look forward to upcoming HyperText :] —VivianPham


2005-10-12 22:35:44   I love "A Davis resource that doesn't suck" and Rob's "Edit this T-shirt". I think black on white would be better, to be like the black on white text of the Wiki. I like the 'roundabout' logo, it's like pages being endlessly re-edited/recycled, I say keep it. —SteveDavison


2005-10-31 21:00:25   Ooh, the new halloween one is my favorite so far! —MiriamKaufman


2005-11-01 09:35:53   The day after Halloween logo is P-I-M-P! —JackHaskel


2005-11-01 16:36:15   i loved these halloween logos, SS & I were wondering... did anyone carve a wiki pumpkin? PHOTO REQUEST! —MichelleAccurso


2005-11-24 16:37:52   Ok, I found a couple of minutes to at least put up what I have for Thanksgiving. It's not finished or polished, but hopefully better than nothing. —MikeIvanov


2006-03-29 03:53:10   JELLYFISHES!!! ok that was childish, sorry..... JELLYFISHES!!!! haha. this page is awesome, awesome logos :) —TusharRawat


2006-07-04 11:29:37   No Independence Day logo today? —AndrewChen


2006-07-20 22:02:47   I just noticed the new logo - I really think it's beautiful! Great work. —JosephBleckman


2006-07-21 04:37:30   hahaha. Sweet logo. God, is the weather going to really be in the triple digits for the whole of next week too? It burns. —DatNguyen


2006-07-26 09:49:14   Hmm. Maybe if we change the logo it will get cooler outside? —MichaelGiardina


2006-12-23 11:51:47   Somebody ought to make a christmas logo! —PhilipNeustrom


2007-02-13 23:41:20   None of the Valentines Day ones have skulls. That makes me sad (And I'm not skilled enough to do the editing myself). —MaxMikalonis


2007-04-10 14:56:06   On the picnic Day logo - what is the thing to the left? —SharlaDaly


2007-05-10 17:36:21   We need a WEF logo! —PhilipNeustrom

Maybe for the WEF you could make one that uses the Daviswiki logo in the place of the little recycling arrows that are on the bottom of plastic bottles and cans. I would do it myself but all I have is Paint program and OpenOffice Draw. — MaryLieth

Here's my first test logo:

I need some help making the two i's look more like tiki torches.


2009-02-18 21:24:43   Hello, fellow Daviswikians. It has been a while, but recently since moving to Ithaca NY I have been working on another wiki [WWW]http://ithaca.wikispot.org/. Anyways I was wandering how you guys designed the logos. Im a total beginner, and the general wikispot page on logos seemed to be more about concept ideas, rather than how to actually make the logo. Thanks


2009-12-21 12:16:49   I threw up an older holiday logo just now. If anyone wants to make a newer one: please do! —PhilipNeustrom


Do we have a larger version of [WWW]the main logo?


2011-11-15 17:43:36   I propose we participate in [WWW]American Censorship Day tomorrow. [WWW]Wikipedia is participating and the legislation threatens the future of DavisWiki and sites like it. What do ya'll think? —PhilipNeustrom

Update: There appears to be a coordinated internet-wide blackout planned for Jan 18th. Wikipedia is considering a full site-wide blackout. Should we join in and put the logo up as we did before? This isn't a theoretical here, either — both Boxer and Feinstein are co-sponsors of the Protect IP Act. —PhilipNeustrom


2011-11-15 21:36:30   There are certainly plenty of students on the UCDavis campus who need help navigating a roundabout. I've had to yell at a few people... —ConsciousConsumer
