I tried playing with the iconic feather graphic, but got frustrated that it could not be isolated from its black background. The feather as it's used on the default wallpaper has a black halo, and it bugs me.

Since I'm a fan of the clean, minimal, flat look of material design, I created this new feather logo. I think it's more consistent with design aesthetic going forward. And I had in mind that the bent feather could imply the letter "L." So here are some ideas.

dark, gold feather, with text


light, blue feather, with text


gold feather with text and a subtle texture


blue feather alone, with texture


rotational symmetry, with subtle stripes


I built the feather in Inkscape, and compiled the wallpaper in GIMP. Obviously, many other variations are possible -- let me know if you're interested in seeing a particular twist on it. (I'm new here, so how do we say...: Please respect the work I've done by giving credit and by not creating derivative works without permission.  :D )

I'd like to suggest that these wallpapers be considered as default for Linux Lite 4.0. Less is more. Like it. Suits the Linux Lite concept.

Wow, I appreciate that @Ottawagrant! I think the ideas of 'lite' and 'minimal' fit well together too.

Thank you @Jerry, I'd be honored to be included!

I'm still playing with variations, and I think this color for the gold feather works better.

@zygmunto  The only way to do it right (I think) would be to have the original artwork file, because it's an issue of layer transparency. You want to separate the semi-transparent feather layer from the dark background layer. I don't think it's possible to recreate that with just the flattened feather artwork.

This one I really enjoy. Wish I could also get it with the blue feather instead (should be easier on the eyes with dark themes).

Thank you for sharing!

Sorry for seeming stupid and preferring Linux - I just don't know any better.

@ralphy You bet, the blue on dark is a great combination. And here's a few more, 'cuz I just can't stop!

@JmaCWQ  Thanks, but no. That's the one I've seen, and it has that black halo. But that's OK -- it inspired me to move on, move ahead, and make something new.

@Jerry  Oh yes, my Inkscape and Gimp files are organized and ready to go.  ;D
