Actually, the new logo does not appear to be a dolphin but a fish. So now one really can call the Orca forum the fish forum LOL. Seriously, I think you should return to the drawing board where the new logo is concerned. Or is this part of the whole dumbing things down for telephones thing?
Andrew Boon
Well, logo is a symbol, not a realistic presentation. In tangram puzzles this is exactly how you make a dolphin. Orca would looks like this - https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/3/34/Tangram_083_Nevit.svg/700px-Tangram_083_Nevit.svg.png and a whale like this - http://u.jimdo.com/www400/o/sb0abad0b84d20c80/img/id5bec07f8d18902d/1407216853/std/tangram-whale.png and a fish like this - https://fantagerop.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/tangram-fish.png .

Cool thing about tangrams is that see more the shapes can be gathered back to a perfect square and to hundreds of other figures.

I like the logo, and you should know by now, I don't like a lot of things around here.

I agree, the logo should now work well on cups, mugs, t-shirts, hoodies, polo's, hats... Whink

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar! You'll be seeing this code a lot ;)

Actually, that one is way to complicated. Here's a simplified one. Looks good covering the entire screen, or as a small icon. Under 700 bytes on disk. Small enough to store in the DB.

Remove stroke and it's even smaller :D . Awesome! Rounded corners add complexity, sure. They do make a bit more friendly though. Decisions decisions...

... on the other hand this is too geeky to pass.

Next challenge is an animation that brings it together into a tangram square and back seamlessly and smoothly. B-)

Perhaps we should announce a competition..?

|Rounded corners add complexity, sure.
