The Free and Open Productivity Suite
Released: Apache OpenOffice 4.1.15

A Brand Refresh for

During the last 10 years™ has evolved to a quite large project in the FLOSS world and a successful product in the office productivity suite market. Together with our product the brand spread over the world. This brand has a tradition of quality and it remains faithful to its origins. Instead of a complete new design we started a refresh. It points out the key components and improves the overall impression to gain even more strength and confidence.

Revised Logo

The Logo and the seagulls are well recognized - even if not applied consistently today. Therefore it is more than reasonable to retain the text string, the color code blue/black and the seagulls. They express the openness, freedom and collaboration we experience. A new blue - friendly and modern – is used. The new tint reminds of a blue sky in a sunny day and with the seagulls also being blue and flying, the sensation of freedom and openness is reinforced.

New Symbol

The seagulls are established as a main visual element. They are not only part of the logo but also construct a standalone symbol. They stand for the freedom of, as they are freely flying birds. There are two of them, which reinforces the value of collaboration and openness. The lighter blue emphasizes this idea even more. The slight changes in their shape and position make them more scalable and rounder.
