Aldo Cortesi got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Help mitmproxy - a kick-ass Open Source security tool - define its brand
Check out Aldo Cortesi's Logo design contest…
Mitmproxy is an Open Source security project, aimed at developers and security pros. It allows users to intercept, inspect, modify and replay traffic from mobile apps, web browsers, and basically anything that speaks HTTP/S. See the website (http://mitmproxy.org) for more.
Logo types to explore
Mitmproxy is an Open Source project that doesn't solicit donations. We are On the Side of Light and help to secure your intertubes - many prominent results in privacy and security have been achieved with our tools. We are looking for a logo that we can use on our website, as well as the web application interface to mitmproxy that is currently under construction. It would be swell if the design was flexible enough to also be reasonably easily adapted to file icons for the executables we distribute. We can afford to be somewhat irreverent, and we would consider things like a character design (though we realise that our $300 might not stretch to this). We offer something in addition to payment - we'll credit you by name on the "about" page of our website, with a link to your own site. A quick explanation of what "mitmproxy" means might be in order. "MITM" stands for "man in the middle". It's a type of attack that is well known in security circles, where the bad guy stands in the middle of a conversation between A and B, impersonating A to B and B to A. "Proxy" is due the fact that we implement a web proxy - i.e. a service that speaks to web servers on a client's behalf. These two phrases describe what mitmproxy does pretty well. These are complicated concepts to get across, so working them into the logo is definitely not a requirement. That said, it would still be great to have something related in there. Here's some guidance regarding the logo itself: - We're not a company, and can afford to be a bit irreverent/different. Please avoid logos that feel too corporate. - There are lots of variations on the letter M that are not too memorable. We'd prefer something a bit more "meaty" and memorable in terms of character/personality. - We prefer flat over 3d - We prefer to have the word "mitmproxy" all the same colour and font. - We prefer to have the word mitmproxy un-capitalized - i.e. either all lowercase (preferred) or all caps. - Please AVOID security industry logo cliches - no locks, shields, eyes, keys, eagles, etc. - We've polled the mitmproxy userbase, and people react very negatively to creepy dudes with fedoras, so please avoid those too. These are guidelines, and we'll consider exceptions if there's a really good underlying idea.
