Mark Boulton was introduced as the person to design the new Drupal logo during the session of Drupalcon Szeged, which was held this September. The Drupal Association had chosen Boulton for the rebranding and redesigning of When asked about his perception on the logo during the session, Boulton responded that it is fine enough although he showed a serious concern for the modification of the Drupal logo so it can be operated for different uses. And that stirs the interest of many.

The Drupal community is said to be “playful” in nature to their Drupal Logo otherwise known as the Drupalicon. This is why the logo itself is said to reflect the community as a whole. And because the Drupal logo is under the license of GPL software, people are free to do the design they want for the logo. This kind of freedom provided by GPL is claimed as a part of the Drupal’s entirety.

Now, as the Drupal is being re-branded, the Drupal Logo is also being transformed into a new look. Of course, the new logo will serve as the public face of the new brand. And even though the proposal for the new logo is perceived to be controversial, it is deemed to be indistinctive still. Truth is the new Dropal Logo is expected to have a legal and commercial design.

So, the Drupalers must be excited to purchase Drupal T-shirt, doodads, and pins, which will have the recent design of the Drupal logo on it. And surely, everyone is expected to give out their own interpretation on the new design of the logo. Anyhow, the change of the logo will never affect the desire of the community to create a greater move in the open source world.
