New logo for Flex : Apache Flex

Flex framework was accepted by Apache software foundation on December 31st 2011 and from 2012 Adobe Flex became Apache Flex and now its a community project managed by Apache.

Apache organized a logo contest and selected a logo design based on the voting from the community.On January 26th the winner and runner up were selected.
Congrats to both the winner and runner for redefining the Adobe Flex.. Oops.. Apache flex logo.

Winner : Adrian Knopik

Runner up :  Julien Brehier

Definitely my vote would have gone to the runner up logo (Julien Brehier's logo) . A beautiful typographical logo with the letter  'A' representing the Apache and the letter 'F' representing the Flex conglomerated together. My guess is that the people who voted doesn't want to have 'A' in logo , which might also be misinterpreted as 'Adobe'
The winning logo is also equally good. As it is abstract it can be interpreted as anything and everything

Which one do you like ? do you think the runner up logo was not selected because it had an 'A for Adobe ' in it ?


  1. Very nice designs, I like it all. Thanks for sharing.

  2. A logo has to be dynamic. This does not mean that it has to change every week, but it should have a flexible approach. professional logo

  3. Yes, a logo is a digital age, but on the other hand it's a prologue to a brand. The logo must contact a particular gathering of people and when outlining, you should remember this. Record what you think about the brand; maybe even make a state of mind board with symbolism that helps you to remember the brand's belief system — look at sites. You can get logo design for Education, in this time most famous and infamous universities, schools and colleges have their own logo, who identify their status.
