In case you’ve missed it, there is currently a logo contest for MetaCPAN in progress. I’m generally not a big fan of contests, but since it’s for the Perl community, i’m participating as well. Here’s what i came up with. (the official entry should later show up here)
No fonts were harmed in the making of this logo, every character is custom made. I tried to combine a retro and futuristic feel, to highlight the long history of Perl and the fact that the CPAN is still science fiction for many programming languages. The three flying pixels are a metaphor for modules, small building blocks that can be combined to form something new. Hope you like it.
