Aux Logo Selection

Continuing the discussion from Aux Beauty Campaign!:

What do we all think of @blue’s logo? Do we want it to be the logo for the ecosystem?

I really it and w/ @Axel’s variant of the thick outline :grin:

Let’s say that slight variations like that are a “yes” here.


that’s why the design files are public! it’s infinitely wallpaper-able, and micro-communities can come up with their own spins on it.

also, i’m not voting here, because that would kind of be putting my thumb on the scale. (edit: jake said its ok so i did)

I was waiting for you to say this… vote! It’s totally okay, you’re a member of the community too :slight_smile:

if this gets accepted, i can clean up the layers and put it on github in every format and every size i can think of.

you should probably only keep one source format, a few PNG sizes + colour alts

Can the poll be between multiple logos instead of a yes and no? I don’t like this one as much as the old one with just the face, this looks eldritch and wants to eat my flesh

SVG can scale to any size, so we only need to push the SVG and make a derivation that uses inkscape or imagemagick to export standard image sizes (64, 128, 256, 512, 1024)

feel free to vote no! my feelings won’t be hurt, and if people don’t like it then we can pick or make another one. this one doesn’t have a mouth, unlike the old one, but i’m sure someone will OwO one on before the end of the week. i’m also willing to take constructive criticism to a point, so if it gets selected (or not) we can further refine it.

I was a little harsh, but I do like it! I just think I prefer the older head more, it felt a little warmer. I just want the poll to have more options.


Here is a small derivation to build various PNG sizes from the SVG logo:

(assuming you have ./auxolotl.svg)

pkgs.stdenv.mkDerivation {
  name = "auxolotl-logo-png";
  src = ./auxolotl.svg;

  dontUnpack = true;
  buildInputs = [ pkgs.inkscape ];

  buildPhase = ''
    for size in 64 128 256 512 1024; do
      inkscape -w $size -h $size $src -o auxolotl-$size.png

  installPhase = ''
    mkdir -p $out

    find . -type f -name "auxolotl-*.png" | xargs -i cp {} $out/{} 

It outputs the following files:



tomorrow i can work on also getting that run through an SVG optimizer like svgo and output as a tiny standards-compliant svg.

Already made 2 optimized versions, check here

yeah, i just figured having that aggressive optimization be a part of the standard build pipeline would be useful, even if we never end up changing the logo again, just as a reference.

You are welcome to try add it to the derivation I made

Ah that’s a good point. Let’s say this poll was just for fun and we can make a new topic showing all the logos and a poll between them. I’ll give people a day to submit them first before we do that.

in this case i say @Sigma’s colorful designs of my logo shape should stand in place of my b+w ones.


For all the other cool art (both present and future) don’t worry, as the original post mentioned there’s a whole ecosystem to paint! Lot’s of art are going to be needed overtime.
