Well that's very kind of you; there's certainly plenty of scope for better graphic design of many of our tools. And indeed our website might benefit from some tweaking.

We've been happily using the current one for 22 years now, so probably not. Of course, I'm biased since I designed it.

don’t my let Tim put you off. We’d be delighted to have a look at your designs. Perhaps you could go something for the Cog logo for the opensmalltalk vm (used by Squeak and others):

Tim, I guess you referring to the Squeak logo (
http://www.rowledge.org/tim/squeak/files/page17_1.jpg) which is well
established.
But I don't think we've long had the OpenSmalltalk "Cog" logo (
http://opensmalltalk.org/static/img/cog.png/).
While its workable, its but a bit "complicated" for a logo.

Now that we have Spur and Sista as technology components that extend Cog,
it might be good to base a logo on more generic concepts that distinguish
us:
1. message passing between objects
2. object-oriented execution engine

Are those reasonable? What other distinctions are important compared to
other systems, and how should they be prioritized for a logo?

Indeed! It's everywhere.

This is very true; the small gear teeth details are problematic when small. A new view on that would be nice.

Where I think a fresh set of skilled eyes would *really* help is the in-image look. Font choices and menu icons etc. Color sets.

I would love to have a logo, maybe with The Balloon incorporated, that is a bit more "area"-y and a bit less "stroke"-y
