Official phpBB3 logo?

Post by dark/Rain »

Is there any place where you may download the official phpBB3 logo (xcf, psd, png, ...)?
Or any plans to "provide" one in future?

if you mean the logo at the top of this forum then no - it is copyrighted by Vlad Gerasimov

I know a way to get it but I'm not sure if it's legal since it's copyrighted. :o
If you really want to know, send me a PM. :)

I've found one, meant something like this: http://www.phpbb.com/theme/images/logo_phpbb.png ,
not the complete header graphics (which are quite nice btw. - the wallpapers too :) ).

It's only for use on a (non-online, personal) web page.
...and the English Wikipedia article maybe needs also a new one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:PhpBB_logo.gif ;)

Do you mean the "simple" phpBB text-logo?

Well, I don't need it desperately :D .
Would just be nice to have to link to phpbb.com etc.
Some sort of "Linking to us" banners/logos...

No, I'm talking about the one at the top of the forum with the "kids" standing.

I know, I was saying I could tel him how to get it, but he would have to ask Vlad Gerasimov first cause I don't want to get in trouble. ;)

Well, you can download the header images as wallpapers on his page (I knew already ;) ).

Wanted to know only, if there will be something like this or these etc.

Now it should be clearer (hopefully :) )

@freak020: thanks anyway ;) - Also I wouldn't want to use them without giving credits and so on - no need to worry :D ...

It's a commercial font.

Summary.

1. Our logo
It is copyrighted material.
I believe fairuse according wikipedia allows you to use low resolution logos on the wikipedia page.

2. Our logo font
Commercial font, if you want it you have to buy a license for it.

3. Using our logo
You may use the copy contained in the download package of phpBB3 or in phpBB3 CVS under the terms of the GPL.

4. The header illustration graphics are by Vlad Studio. We gained permission for the use of them, you would have to as well.
But he gives them as free downloads! I'm sure the free download license is purely for personal use as a desktop wallpaper, not for editing, modification, or distribution (including in a website design is distribution).
If in doubt ask.

Is it "Cocon-Bold"?

Used WhatTheFont (try to upload as many letters as possible, i.e. use the "About phpBB" text from http://www.phpbb.com/about/ for example).

//Edit: Could also be "Cocon-Regular" ("FF Cocon" overview).

I ran a test on this image, and it picked Cocon-Regular, and Cocon-Bold.
However, it resembles Cocon-Bold the best.
