    soo I have been looking at the logo for AntiX and been thinking, isn’t it a bit dated?
    It looks pretty old and the font is almost unreadable (I’m watching on distrowatch).
    So isn’t it time for a new one?

    What do you suggest?

    That image looks great! The idea might work well for MX but antiX uses a lowercase “a” and an uppercase “X”.

    Hi BitJam.

    About the logo : The symbol “^” is a reference to “up” (not the letter “A” uppercase) and at the end is a leg to symbolize the “X” To reference the “antiX”.

    The original idea is: “UP antiX” and fly 🙂

    I like the look, but think the A should be small and the X large. Why not try that same look but make the up arrow small and the X large?

    I bet that would look perfect on the backgrounds and such, and work well in a miniature version on the start menu button.

    Hey those look pretty good ohh,

    maybe suggest putting the version number full size behind the antiX.

    I am basically against changing the antiX logo!
    Have you ever asked yourselves the question, why the so-called world companies do not?

    Because of me the suggestions made here can serve as wallpaper backgrounds in antiX, but not the logo.

    male, I agree. That logo has represented the antiX “brand” for a decade. It is what it is.
    Messing with re-branding would impose an unnecessary and time-intensive chore.

    I agree that branding is what it is. The suggest by ohh would be good
    for the initial login or 1st wallpaper though.

    p.s.: which application do you use to draw the circles and arrows
    onto the screenshots with?
