My favorite is the one with "L4j" in a circle (by Murad).
Script used by Andreas is a good second choice for me.
My third choice would be Lars van der Vliet's submissions (also has the (4)-squared idea and I like the gray & green colors).

I think holding up the final release for the logo shouldn't be too desired. I am patiently waiting for 2.0 to hit GA and the logo is superfluous to my usage.

There have been many candidates submitted in the Logo contest [1] which can be viewed at I am going to be honest and say that none of them grabs me and says thats the one, although I like the ideas expressed in quite a few of them. I definitely like the play on version 2 and using it as a superscript to make it appear as log4j squared. Many of the logos just feel too big to me - they have Log4j adjacent to the image, making them take up a lot of horizontal space. On the images themselves, I really like the coffee cup submitted by Murad, I like the script used by Andreas but I would prefer that the 4 was facing the correct direction and that the 2 superscript be to the right of the 4 instead of to the left. I think many of the graphics submitted by Gary are kind of cool - they are very modern looking.

Ideally we should pick out a new logo before 2.0 is released so it would be great if we could get more discussion on this.

Finally, these are just my opinions. I wont be the only one voting so I would definitely like to hear what some of the other PMC members think.
