New Logo for Wikimedia Education
Read the Education Program survey report of January 2018


Intro[edit]

In January 2018 the Education Team at the Wikimedia Foundation published a report based on a survey that asked all of the Wikimedia & Education stakeholders for input about our communications and branding. The research conducted last year found that our communications materials and resources were not reflecting the work of our large and active community of program leaders, educators, students, policymakers, and many more.

We announced in July that we would start making some initial revisions to the Education space on Outreach Wiki. Including phasing out the current visual identity, archiving outdated pages and information, developing new content that is relevant and current, and improving overall usability.

The first step in this process is to decide on a new logo. The Communications team at the Wikimedia Foundation has designed something for us and has asked us to choose a color from three that they have provided. We need your help to decide on the right color for our logo. Please look at the options below, and vote for the one you like best.

Other considerations: After we have decided on the design that we like, the Education Team will work with Comms to provide usage guidelines similar to the one that was developed for the Wikimedia Hackathon. This will include guidelines on variations of the logo, and how it can be customized for different communities, groups, and events related to Wikimedia & Education.

  • Wikimedia and Education community from any language and from any country can participate in this.

  1. I find something more subtle about this colouring option. I wish it featured a pencil or book as a symbol for education, but then again, those elements can be featured around the logo if desired. MPourzaki (talk)
@MPourzaki: This has been adopted to be in sync with original Wikimedia logo, and for branding purposes. KCVelaga (talk) 07:02, 25 October 2018 (UTC)

  1. Gereon K. (talk) I wonder how lettering is still readable over either dark or light blue, so medium blue seems to be the best choice.
