Our third submission in this contest just came in. It was created by Berry Arthur and looks like this:
It works pretty well in a small format as well:
Barry also provided an example of how one could include it into a larger banner:
The logo looks more like an eye and a pacman to me than a "C"; I can't make a connection to MetaCPAN.
I like the feel of the eye, not sure about the 'c' and then how it fits within the full 'metacpan', but it's an interesting start
I didn't think of making it look like a C at all while I was desiging it - it was always and only intended to be an eye. I was thinking of it as being symbolic of searching. The idea came to me when The Eye of Sauran popped into mind - hence the Eye of CPAN. Making it the C of the banner example was a very last minute composition as I was putting it together for submission. It doesn't have to be used that way at all, but it *is* an eye. :-)
This is by far my favorite one. If only it looked more like the Eye of Horus
