Re: Logo for Lilypond

The logo, the graphical identity and the program name are all *very* important factors when it comes to establishing a software in the minds and lives of the users...

I'm totally convinced that I would have discovered the beauty of Lilypond years ago if

1. The program name was something that I would associate with professional music/notation
2. The site was professional and modern, (reflecting the artistic level and intensions of the program and its developers)
3. There was a graphically appealing logo, again with associations to professional music/notation

For years, I've seen links to Lilypond examples, always thinking this was some kind of non-professional semi-toy thing...

To me, the nice little happy note does *not* give an association to the professional level that Lilypond represents! (Maybe ideal for a program for children!) This also connects to the discussion of heightening the professional level of the documentation - I would really hate to see the nice happy little note on the first documentation page...

Two examples of projects with nice graphical concepts (in my opinion!): <- take a look at the correspondance between site and documentation!

Well, that's my opinion... Hope I don't offend someone!
It's really cute, the nice little happy note! :-)

Best regards!

Very nice!  It's IMO the best choice for a lily logo that I have seen so
