Contest is now on 99designs.com: https://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/monero-mro-cryptocurrency-logo-design-contest-382486

Monero is new cryptocurrency based on the CryptoNote protocol. It's not a descendent of Bitcoin and uses new cryptography (ring signatures) to give a high degree of anonymity by obscuring identities with decentralized mixing. You can read all about it here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=583449.0

Monero is looking for a logo and will pay a bounty to the winning designer. There's no set end date for submissions. The coin is primarily about privacy and the name is derived from the language Esperanto, but you don't have to incorporate either of those things. Something minimalistic is fine. The main component we're looking for is the coin design (i.e. like Bitcoin's white B in an orange circle), but a circular design is not mandated. A stylized rendering of the word Monero is entirely optional.

We will probably decide by discussion in the IRC channel since a forum vote is prone to ballot stuffing by new accounts. If selected, you may still be asked to tweak and play around with the fonts/color schemes before finalizing for usage.

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

I have two submissions:

(1) Started with Esperanto flag in a coin and then did a path offset to create a 45-degree M in the bottom right corner:

(2) Started with 1st coin, took out the star and transformed the inside of the 45-degree M to look like a lock:

I orientated my logo at the Esperanto logo, just 90° turned and with "m" instead of "e". And the hat in the second variation is to symbolize the anonymity

Hope u like it Smiley

The eye thing is kind of awkward for me. Any reason you put it there? Looks clean though!

1: It looks pretty good, but I don't think anyone here is looking to emphasize Esperanto itself. The name choice seems like more of a play on the idea that it's an auxiliary language meant to serve as neutral ground to provide an equal footing for anyone looking to discuss whatever issues they have. Much like this currency can be used to allow the trading of value-for-value entirely across the world . . without any of the barriers that are apparent with your fiat alternatives.

2: You make lock-and-key look nice for this coin, but it's becoming increasingly harder to get a "look" that makes this distinct amongst the increasing pile of other lock-and-key designs all the other coins use. I just feel like the idea has become ubiquitous . . especially in a landscape based on cryptography.

I like that the image in the center can be taken as both a B for bitmonero, or M for monero, or E for esperanto. It's got a nice symmetry to it that I can easily identify to all three of those things -- this is key for a logo. Have you thought about varying the colors? The green-on-green looks doesn't contrast great and would be harder to see what the logo is at smaller resolutions. Also, I feel like the green-white or full green look I see come up a lot has already been played out with Vertcoin.

I'm really not following you with the hat . . could you explain this a little more? I'm not seeing the symbolism.

Awesome ideas!

Here is a cross post from the old thread:


This is a cool idea. I feel like the orange you used takes too much from both bitcoin and bytecoin, any other color ideas? Also, the $ in the middle -- can you change it to the M with bars in it I've seen come up numerous times? I think that would look nice, what do you think?



I'm digging the liberal use of stars! But, they seem to be bottom-heavy and that leaves half of the image feeling light with the one lonely little star on top. Any reasoning for the stars?

my submission inspired by Esperanto jubilee symbol

I like this one a lot. Again, the green-on-green is already kind of played out by Vertcoin. I feel like the shapes would play on the contrast well with smaller sizes you provided.

Not that this coloring is a bad idea, more that I think people will think of Vertcoin before Monero here. It looks very simple and clean -- symmetry seems to stand out a lot better with shapes instead of letters.
