[IPython-dev] New favicon

Hi everyone,

I'm making a new topic for this because the old thread is moving so fast
it's hard for people to keep up with. Klonuo has been brainstorming favicons
for the new website, and we'd like to get feedback from more people. Take a
look at the examples in the attached image.

It's designed to tie in with a larger logo that we're working on at the same
time. I've attached a couple of example concepts to compare, but there are
plenty more if you hunt through the thread.

Issues we've been considering:
- The ][ is derived from a capital I for IPython. There are variations in
spacing and colour.
- The third bracket ] and the colon are from a concept for a logo, which has
the form ][Py] .
- The ][ is somewhat similar to a logo used in the 70s & 80s by Apple for
the Apple II series of computers.

So far, my favourites are A1 and B2 (despite the similarity in shape to
Apple's ][ ). Klonuo, can you post which you prefer?

Your thoughts are welcome, or you can send back different designs or
variants of any of these.

Thanks,
Thomas
