SpamAssassin Ninjaheads

SpamAsassin has been of great help to me on the server side, filtering out the 50-80 spam messages I receive per day so they never even touch my inbox; but their “logo,” with the plastic ninja dolls, has always left a little something to be desired, art-wise. (Sorry, Justin! ;)

My Spamassassin iconThat has begun to change, however: they’re having a logo contest for the release of the new upcoming SA3.0.0. Here are the current entries, and my logo entry.

    Great design, pau!

    Based on the entries so far, I’d say yours is easily the frontrunner.

  2. OK, I’ll be the party pooper. I think the face on your logo looks like a bug. Not knowing the original, I didn’t read the black bit at the bottom as a mask, but as a mouth, and the white points at the bottom as some kind of pincer-mandibles. Even knowing it’s supposed to be a ninja, it still looks like a bug to me. Sowwy!

    I’m crushed! Crushed! Like a bug!

  4. Uh-oh. Now Pau’s gonna send Ninjas after me for being so mean! Is it any consolation that this is the first thing you’ve designed that I seen and haven’t liked?
