A logo for Gora
---------------

                 Key: GORA-3
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GORA-3
             Project: Gora
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Enis Soztutar


So we need a logo for Gora.

As you might know, we have chosen the name "Gora" from a vast number of alternatives, since
it was nice, short, easy to pronounce and remember. Also at hindsight, it can be the long
form of "Generic Object Representation using Avro", or smt like that. Anyway, Gora was the
name of Dogacan's dog, so we can have some kind of a dog in the logo. But it is not that critical.

What I would like is for the logo to look in the vein of the logo's for Hadoop and its subprojects.
We can have Gora or Apache Gora text embedded to the logo. However, the logo and the text
can also be separate. 

We all love the cute little elephant that is Hadoop :  http://hadoop.apache.org/
And Hive logo is actually kind of clever : http://hadoop.apache.org/hive/
Also Mahout logo is nice : http://mahout.apache.org/

Here are some images that look like the dog :

It would be best if we can prepare the logo in vector format, and bitmaps in various sizes.

Finally, Gora is a way to represent and persist data, using Hadoop, Avo, HBase, SQL, Cassandra,
etc, so we can reflect that in the logo if needed. 

We have a friend that is working on something, I will upload the it soon.
