Kotlin Logo


#1

I’ve noticed that, so far, there hasn’t been a change to the Kotlin logo, despite the Jetbrains rebranding campaign and the fact that the Kotlin logo is reminiscent of the old JetBrains and IntelliJ logos. I’m just curious; is Kotlin’s logo going to stay untouched by the rebranding?
Personally, I’m a big fan of the Kotlin logo as well as the new branding, so I won’t be excited OR disappointed either way.

No, it’s not going to stay untouched.


#3

I assume it will be following the new style that JetBrains is using for their tools?


#4

No comment, sorry. :slight_smile: In fact we’re still working on the design, and simply copying the design of the icons of other JB products isn’t going to work for us.


#5

Oh, man. Now I’m really intrigued. Looking forward to it. Gotta save a copy of the old one too, just cuz I’m that kind of guy :stuck_out_tongue:

The new logo has arrived


#7

Nice. I especially like the transition video on the twitter post.


#8

Just curious: Was JetBrains acquired by Adobe?

*SCNR*

This logo is hard on my eyes. I think it’s because my eyes are expecting edges, and the gradients make them work hard to find them. I find myself averting my eyes to avoid strain.

Isn’t there a design rule that logos should work well in B&W? This might be one of the reasons.
