The current logo you’re seeing on top of this page is the logo of Barcamp Hanoi 1. Several months ago, right after we put it on the homepage,  some people gave us feedback that we should change the logo. And we see that other Barcamps also change their logo for each individual event. So we think it’s right time now to announce a tiny logo design contest for Barcamp Hanoi 2009. Then we can use the winning logo to print banner, T-shirt, official documents and put it on the homepage. You can read more detail about the contest below:

  1. Frankly speaking I'm not impressed with this version. I suppose it is too complex and the color palette is not ideal. What do you think?
