[ee4j-community] Fwd: Jakarta EE logo selection process - next steps


As an update, we have done further analysis on the nine potential logos we had shortlisted.  

Based on this analysis, we would like to suggest that we drop # 6 and # 9 as potential logos from the attached list of nine we had shared late last week (and is attached for convenience).  As people pointed out on the GitHub Issue [link] those logos are too similar to other logos in our industry, and thus run the risk of not being able to get them trademarked.  

So that would leave seven logos that we intend to carry forward to a community vote. We are confident any of the remaining six are good potential candidates to become the selected logo.  

We will continue to do due diligence with respect to trademarking the seven candidate logos, but we are hopeful they all will remain as viable candidate logos going forward. 

A separate note will be sent in the next few days with details on how to vote on these remaining seven logos.

We have now closed the submission process.  

Thank you for the many proposed logos, and associated comments.  The contributions have been very useful.

As described earlier in the process, the next steps are the following:

  • The Eclipse Foundation has narrowed the list of submitted logos to a much shorter list of candidate logos, based on the criteria laid out in the design brief.  In the interest of disclosure, this list of candidate logos is attached.

  • We are not soliciting input on this shorter list.  Rather, the next step is for the Eclipse Foundation to trim this list to a much shorter list of final candidate logos.  This process will be driven by the Foundation’s marketing team, based on their experience and the intended objectives of the logo, as well as a much deeper dive into legal and other related issues.  We thank you for your trust in us doing this in the best interest of the Jakarta EE community. 

    From this process, the list of candidate logos will be trimmed to 2-4 final candidate logos.  We are targeting completing this process by mid-next week.

  • We will hold a community vote to determine which of these final candidate logos should be the chosen logo.  

  • Once the community vote is completed, the Foundation will take final steps to adopt the logo, and make an announcement to the community.

Again, thank you to all for the input thus far, and we look forward to your input during the community vote.
