MPL2 Logo

Looking at the current logo, I wondered whether we would want to change
this as part of the style changes when we release 2.0... as well as
marketing our new style, the current logo uses jet to make the graph...

Playing around with the examples/api/logo2.py I found changing line 68 to:

bar.set_facecolor(cm.viridis(r/8.))

gave pleasing results with the largest wedge getting coloured green (see
attached for uncropped version).

It makes sense to me to use the new colormap.

I also noticed a mistake in the first equation, top-left: the first term
should be density times the partial derivative of vector velocity with
respect to time. Or just divide everything through by density and
change the mu to a nu so that density appears only in the pressure
gradient term.

I am not against changing the logo, but if we do so, then it should be a
much more significant change. I actually like the jet version of the logo
better because of the wide variety of colors. Uniform perception isn't a
needed trait for graphs like those.

Perhaps, I just think we should make a thing of our new colormap, during
the whole conversation we talked about stamping our identity with this,
the MPL colourmap, well I think we should sing its praises through the
homepage.

I think any redesign of the logo should go together with a wider ranging
overhaul of the website, it's information architecture, and our visual
identity. To that end I have enlisted a professional web developer/designer
to help us (disclosure, my fiancee). There probably won't be much work
done in that direction until after our wedding next month.

I like the idea, but am hesitant to make any changes in isolation.

Ooh, congratulations to the both of you!

I think it's a great idea to look carefully at branding as a whole, and
not take any changes lightly. Thanks for getting that ball rolling, Thomas.

One thing that occurred to me today, as I walked into the Javits Center
and saw the matplotlib logo reproduced about 5 feet wide on a banner
hanging above the expo hall, is that we have a lot of inertia in the
current design, and we shouldn't take any change lightly. As much as we
are moving to a better color map, the colors in the logo (and the orange
especially )are a strong part of the branding and branding in Scipy
projects in general.

I hope it is OK to fix the Navier-Stokes equation, though. It won't
change the general appearance, but it will save some embarrassment. (I
have no idea what the rest of the math in the logo is, but the botched
N-S equation is prominent.)

Just my two cents but the unusual size of the logo makes it difficult to integrate at various places.
I've made a cover for the scipy lecture notes (hidden advertisement, see http://www.scipy-lectures.org) and I was unable to properly integrate it.

In the end, I chose to make a brand new one (see below).
I'm not saying this new one is better, but it would be good to have a more "square" version of the current logo.

I think there would probably need to be 3 versions of the logo. The first
would be the current one. The second would be for presentations, and would
probably be a square one with just the plot with the matplotlib name below
it. The third would be for icons (taskbar icons, favicons, etc), and would
probably be just the plot.
