MobileRead Unite! Create a Logo for DRM-Free(liberated) ePUB

This is a spin off of the thread
.ePUB extension should be reserved for non-DRM eBooks

The idea is to Brand DRM-Free ePUB to help reduce confusion on ePUB out there.

If a reader sees this ICON then they know this ePUB can be read on any device that supports ePUB.

Not having any graphic talent myself I'm asking the MobileRead community to participate and develop an ICON/Logo to brand the DRM-Free ePUB. This will help new readers and existing readers easily identify a DRM-Free ePUB.

BTW I would also like to call it "Liberated" ePUB.

the text "ePUB" with an upwards-directed thumb in front? (yeah, not much of a graphic talent too )

Good suggestions.

I was thinking along the lines if ePUB is going to be a world dominating format, we ought to create an Icon without using a language, but more of a universal graphic icon.

ePub in a nice, modern serif font with a globe inside (or instead) of the upper part of the "P" maybe?

For what is worth, I already use this one for my ePUBs:



but it's not specific for DRM-free ePUB.

How about the same logo but using the word freePub with the "fre" in outline only. The free refers to DRM-free, not necessarily no-cost, but I think people are used to different meaning of free these days. I also like .fpub for the DRM-free ePub filename extension and a freePub logo works well with that.

I think I can do that... if I find a matching font or draw an f and r

OK, something like this, maybe?

Those look good.

Some of my ideas.
  • An open book with the globe of the world in the middle hovering over the book.
  • An open book with the liberty torch hovering over the book (aka DRM-free "Liberated" ePub)
  • An open book with a symbol that represents unity.

How about these? Now with the real font (Steelfish).

I'm working with the SVG and I could do versions of the other variants too.

I think the word DRM is too small. I made it the size I did for a reason. Make one hollow and one black DRM and see what the response is.
