Troy Howard commented on LUCENENET-379:
---------------------------------------

Regarding logo design: 

- The color scheme on the new logo idea was choosen because it aligns with Apache's dark blue
color and also lucidimagination.com and Solr. 

Solr Logo:

Lucid Imagination Logo:

Lucene's logo, and even worse Lucene.Net's hacked version of it is pretty ugly. It's hard
to read, doesn't imply anything, and as Michael said, would be more appropriate for an emblem
on the side of a classic car than as a product logo for a modern technology. 

For reference:

Lucene.Net Logo
http://incubator.apache.org/lucene.net/images/lucene_net_green_460.GIF


In the new logo, the idea behind the hexagons was to show multiple sources coming together
in an index. Best I could come up with at the time. ;)

I'm not a huge fan of the green used in the Lucene logo either. So I'd prefer not to repeat
it's use. Another more pleasant green might work out though..

I mostly just wanted to get the discussion rolling and wanted to have something reasonably
pleasant to look at as a placeholder in the website template. I'm a software engineer, not
a graphic designer. I'm sure there are MANY people out there who can design a better logo
than me. I hope so. Let's get them involved. 

I think we should open a logo design contest. We can accept submissions and vote on the results.
Worked for CouchDB not that long ago. It will give our more social users something (else)
to blog about. ;)

> The existing Lucene.Net home page at http://lucene.apache.org/lucene.net/ is still based
on the incubation, out of date design.  This JIRA task is to bring it up to date with other
ASF project's web page.
> The existing website is here: https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/lucene.net/site/
> See http://www.apache.org/dev/project-site.html to get started.
> It would be best to start by cloning an existing ASF project's website and adopting it
for Lucene.Net.  Some examples, https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/pylucene/site/ and
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/java/site/
