ROME is an open-source java library project that eases the parsing and generating RSS, RDF, and Atom feeds. The ROME founders have just announced the winner of its logo contest to be a design by Ozan Yigit:
While I like the winning entry by Mr. Yigit, I’m afraid the no-two-pieces-fit aspect conveys “cobbled together”… not the kind of image an open source project wants to garner. Hopefully that’s a bit of over-analysis on my part and the general public doesn’t get the same impression. (More on this here.)
The other finalist, Sylvain Comte, had a great design that was my personal favorite. I wasn’t part of choosing the winner, but I felt his colleseum design presented a very polished sleek image for ROME.
Never the less, congrats to Mr. Yigit, and thanks to everyone who participated in the ROME logo contest.
