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 ?
