I like this but could you further explain topic #5?

Other than that, this sounds interesting!

Testing Logo Sketches can be done in various ways and the aim is just for feedbacks or critics;

This can be via Surveys, Posting on Design Forums, Social Media , Word of Mouth etc

Thanks for explaining. If it’s an online session, would love a link to it and learn from it!

Sure, I will be unleashing that on a session in Open Source Design Community.
Waiting for @Erioldoesdesign ‘s response

So this is a great start for an outline and contains the most important things generally for a brand design project.

What I’d love you to have a think about is what differences (if any!) the project being open source raises? You’ve already raised one here ‘Free Design Platform’

I wonder specifically if you can encourage ‘openness’ and ‘community’ when developing the brand.

I would highly suggest looking back at how Mozilla did their last brand project as they tried an open approach and learned a lot!

Also, I know @elioqoshi has done a lot of open-source brand/logo projects and I think his experience and opinions here are immensely valuable.


Seen!! Great Designs out there
What is your say about the session?
Is it gonna work?

Yes it can work, I suggested some things to respond to (quoted above) what do you think about my suggestions above
