Thanks a lot for your comments, Mohammad and Pedram. I am attaching the last version with the changes Mohammad suggested. I hope you like it. I also think it is now more abstract and related with the "lineage" :-)

Thank you for providing the SVG file. I totally agree with Mohammad (comment #6) SVG does look very nice!

No need to worry about the browser support, since almost 100% of browsers do support SVG files. You can try it on your current browser too! There's just one thing, you should remove the first line in (file #48771):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

Now if you'd like to check it on your system, just create a blank HTML file alongside the SVG file path, and copy-paste this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang='en'>
   <head>
      <meta charset="UTF-8" />
         <title>SVG test</title>
   </head>
   <body>
      <!-- Maneage logo -->
      <img src="file-name.svg" />
   </body>
</html>

Voila!

SVG is so much more pleasing! I just love the infinite-resolution vector graphics ;-).

What do you think about removing the circle and the "maneage" part: only keeping the boxes and their connection (be more abstract)?

In fact we may be able to just add a box just above the top-left box, to resemble the vertical line at the start of the `m' (small M) character. It will also convey the lineage part of our Maneage. What do you think?

After some iterations, here we have the final version (at least for now). I hope the web could interpret the SVG file properly so you can see it.

This is nice, just one other small thing: maybe it would be better if the two horizontal lines above and below "maneage" are removed.

This will open some space so the boxed "m" can come closer to the center (downwards) and the text of "maneage" can also be brought down a little to keep the center of gravity in the center ;-).

I think that unless there are any other suggestions, we can use this to start with :-). In the future, we can consider improvements/evolutions, but for now, this is good :-D.

We should really thank Julia for this later. Maybe later she can commit the SVG file (which is plain-text) in the project's Git history somewhere ;-).

Thank you very much for the comments, Mohammad. Julia has modified a bit the logo following your comment. Right now it is not vectorized, but there is no problem in having the final version in such format (for example in SVG file).

Have a look at this new version. It is now in black and white, with the external circle line in black and the locations of the blocks a bit different. The type of the letters have also been changed a bit.

This is an interesting Logo Raul, thanks a lot for considering the creation of a logo before hand ;-)! It has some similarities with the logo of GNU Hurd, but it is unique enough to be distingushied.

Maybe we can just make it a clear black and white (with the lines and cubes being black, over a white background). The circle shape can also be kept as a thin black circular circumference. This will allow us to use it much more freely on any type of document, webpage or context, what do you (or Julia) think?

Also, is it available as an SVG file?

I was just looking at images on the concept of "Lineage" and found Figure 1 in this sociology report. Like Julia's figure, it also resembles an "M". The only thing is that in sociology/anthropology, lineage is backwords (grand parents, ancestors, and their older generations), hence the triangles there pointing up. But in our scenario, they can be downward from the origin.

This is just a brainstorm... Julia's current pattern is good for a start, maybe just fixing the colors ;-).

I cannot see the figure so I think it didn't upload the image properly, trying again :-)

I have a prototype of a possible logo made by Julia Aguilar-Cabello. I really like it, and she is open to make some (minor and easy) modifications. What do you think?

Very good point! It is indeed necessary, if you know any Logo artist that is willing to volunteer (or you are good at it yourself), that would be great :-).

Just please consider that it has to be vector graphics, I guess SVG is most standard vector graphics format (which is basically HTML!). But there are good software like Inkscape for working with vector graphics.
