In 2009 the OSMF launched a new mediawiki powered site at with the same OSM logo, and this wiki page was set up to get some ideas for a special foundation logo.

See Logos for current logos.

This page describes a historic artifact in the history of OpenStreetMap. It does not reflect the current situation, but instead documents the historical concepts, issues, or ideas.

Competition? holding status

In fact this was originally presented as a logo design competition with the intention that a new logo would be selected by the board a few months later (in 2009) however there wasn't much of an attempt to describe any details rules or any design brief/parameters of this competition. Years later and this idea has stagnated, although the main project did in fact swap to a slightly altered Logo design, and the foundation website followed (with "foundation" written under it). Designs on this page were ignored at that time.

There doesn't seem to be an urgent need to introduce a new foundation logo right now. If the competition is to be re-opened, this would probably be organised by the Communication Working Group.

If you love designing logos, feel free to add new design "entries" to this page, but please note the above. Also note that art and design input is likely to be welcome in many other areas.

OSM logo and possible variations according the background


Logos for Open Street Map Foundation

OSMF1.jpg Osm4.jpg Osm4.jpg

The middle and right-hand versions are my personal fav, representing multiple contributor's locations on a map. Each of the three location indicators are designed with the original OpenStreetMap logo colors (blue, green and orange/red).

Designed 100% vector for an easy resize. Logo can be provided in a range of standard formats.

OSM Logo World Green

Raster version 200, 80 and 40 pixel

Would this tell you or remind you of something?

Okay, it steals one element from another (very famous) community project. But, it's still very distinct. After all, there is some thing that connects us: "The Free WIKI world map", right?

Does it show the HUMAN aspect?

Of course, there is room for improvement. I drafted it this morning. Feedback? Too bold? Too WIKI? Zeptomoon 09:48, 18 May 2010 (UTC)

The colors and the slogan are open for discussion, of course!! The smaller globes are just to test how it looks at smaller scales.

If there will be some positive comments on the idea, I will try to make it scale better to smaller size and add some fancy dynamic features to the large version like line width variations along the latitudes/longitudes, shadow, reflections, etc. Zeptomoon 10:54, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
