Description

Description

We'll need new logos for the header that include:

  • project logo (puzzle globe, etc)
  • wikipedia
  • tagline (the free encyclopedia, etc)

This epic will include all tasks related to logo creation and documentation.

Open Questions:

  • three logos for individual pieces or one svg with everything?
  • can we use mobile logo for the text and add the globe and tagline around it?
  • are there other complications we have not yet discussed?
  • can we use a script or should we manually create all of the logos
  • What happens when logo is undefined in custom MW & Vector 2020 installation

Checklist - complete when all ticked

  • A decision is made around whether a dashboard would be useful for remaining logos (T252710)

wordmarks

  • T142426: All wikipedia's have language wordmarks and these have been deployed
  • Add wordmark for incubator

project logo icons

  • many of our logos are "pngs". Do we want to Vectorize them (originally T54019)
  • Update the projects in the table with the correct icons.

taglines

  • T252850 - font-size revisited for Chinese

Next set of logos to update

  • Wordmark for incubator:
  • ptwikinews
  • frwikiquote
  • Morroccan Arabic Wikipedia
  • We will optimize all logos by running them through svgo.

post deploy

  • When all logos have been built make sure all of them have been optimized via svgo (per T276279)

I would like to see these logos on Commons, will it be possible? :)

@Iniquity we've uploaded the Commons logo. See the screenshot below — is that what you were referring to?

@alexhollender no, sorry if I explained it wrong :) I mean, will these logos be uploaded to commons?

Ah, of course! Great idea. I've just created T258643 to track that.

Thanks for merging. As a note, ca.wikimedia.org also seems to lack a new wordmark logo.

@alexhollender_WMF - we should make sure we have all the new logos in place before further deployment

Since this is about every single logo in all our projects, I'm not comfortable with calling this a quarterly goal since we haven't discussed that previously so moving out of board for time being until we can clarify the scope.

@Jdlrobson, @alexhollender_WMF - I see this as a blocker to deployment (marking as a subtask of T309972: [Goal] prepare desktop improvements project for further deployment, since we shouldn't be deploying to projects where we don't yet have the wordmarks updates. In terms of tracking via the epic or T142426: Create wordmarks for all Wikipedia languages, I think T142426 should work fine as well.

I ran a script to check the current status of logos across projects. We have 986 projects. 902 of them are currently without wordmarks. A huge amount of those (just under 50%) came from volunteer contributions.

While some of these projects may be able to reuse existing wordmarks it's still significant work to still identify which of those are). I don't think it's realistic to think we'll be able to update all of those manually ourselves without a change in strategy to how we go about it or a huge time suck on Alex's time.

We should chat about this in our next sync with Alex!
