I'm sure the new logo was announced on W3C's SW blog the same day.
I don't think W3C has a formal process for the creation of visual
material, though. SWEO just tried to help by coordinating the
different design initiatives that had already started in the 
technology groups. We have limited resources, decisions had to be 
made. It would be great to have more members join SWEO so that we
could have more bandwidth for "inreach" communication, too, sure.
I would have loved to do the whole thing as a competition-like
public thing, similar to our community projects, but that was 
simply impossible resource-wise.

Point taken, though.
