Hi guys,

Dave L. first stab to create a logo for JSON-LD reminded of a logo contest
I've seen a while ago but I couldn't remember which it was. Turns out it was
Apache Flex (http://flex.apache.org/). They've ended up getting a very
beautiful logo (actually lots of them but there contest site is no longer

I just looked into their repos and found the "design brief" the used to
announce the logo contest. I shamelessly copied and adopted it for JSON-LD,
see here:


What do you think about running a logo contest? I think a lot of designers
are looking for opportunities like these to show their creativity and
capabilities and to give something back to the community. In the worst case
we won't receive any submissions. In the best, we might end up with a really
nice and shiny logo.

I think it's worth a try.
