The Humanitarian OSM Team Logo:

designed by Saman Bemel Benrud

Hot logo with text.svg

This version has text added on the side. This is the preferred text arrangement in situations where text can be freely placed. The font used here is arial. OpenStreetMap should be spelled out in full.

HOT permits the use of the logo by members of the team for communications and promotional activity. See the image description page for details.


The logo was decided by means of a logo design competition which took place in December 2010. It was organised by Harry Wood and judged by Mikel Maron, Kate Chapman, Robert Soden, Nicolas Chavent, and Schuyler Erle.

Other competition entries

We'd like to thank all the competition entrants for taking the time and applying their talents to come up with logo designs. The entries were as follows (in the order submitted)

Page 1 as a PNG image, Page 1 as SVG

2 (torch) David Ellams
3 (osm coloured) User:Hind
4 (various) (including the winning design) Saman Bemel Benrud

6 (blue + triangle)
7 (orange fire) Mike Dupont
8 (hands) Oliver Crippin
9 (footprint)

The artists were willing to sign over rights to the images to HOT in accordance with the rules of the competition, and they most likely willing to permit use and re-use elsewhere, however these logos should be considered copyrighted unless and until they state otherwise (Contact them to ask) Currently logo designs are available presented as two pages, numbered by artist, but these links are temporary. We'll upload them properly as separate files to the wiki.
