Raul MATEi - ::

Our most recent entrant, Raul from Rumania, appears to have gotten a message from one of his friends, pointing him at our contest:

My friend's a programmer and is in love with Perl, I'm a musician (classical guitar player) but I love all things related to web technology, design or programming. I use Perl just for simple scripts at work so I'm not a "guru", but this contest is an oportunity for me to make something valuable for the Perl community.

Following is his work, which, he says, is

a simple, clean and powerful logo that once used and abused will be a memorable one. This is the first version, that probably will be retouched.


  1. I like this. It's perl. It's clean. It works well at 16px. It is indeed memorable. Well done.

  2. Can it be Meta::CPAN instead of meta::cpan?

    1. It's lowercase so it must be functioning as a pragma.

  3. Best entry so far! It's got my vote.

  4. I also think that this is the best entry so far. I'm curious to see the "Meta::CPAN" variant as zorgnax suggested, and maybe also a different color scheme.

  5. Profesional. A succeseful and powerful logo. Great work!

  6. Hello guys, all requirements will be met, but because I haven't used a font for the text I'm forced to design M, C, P, A, N glyphs from the scratch. Next week I will come with two versions that I think will meet the above requirements. For the chosen color scheme I had some good reasons, but if you have other ideas I'll accept them with pleasure.

  7. I really like this one: looks professional, very clear to read, the full logo scales well to different sizes, the “::” means something in the context of Cpan, and the favicon is a proper symbol (rather than just letters).

    Personally I think it's good in all lower-case.

  8. yep, i like this one. lowercase looks good too and i love the "::" ;)

  9. Yeah this is great. To state the obvious: the dots are fantastic as they are the key syntax used for packages. Regarding capitalization, I vote for meta::CPAN.

  10. I really like this one. Probably my favorite.

    The dots work well as an iconized version of the logo. And it looks good both in b/w and reversed.

    Personally I'd keep the lowercase font. I realize CPAN is an acronym, and therefore should be capitalized, but esthetically it works better all lowercase. Nicely balanced with the 1 letter on each side having a ascender/descender.

    I'm impressed you carved out the font yourself. I was far too lazy to do that for any of my submissions =)

  11. I have gone through your content, it is excellent. I hope that it will be beneficial for many students who use to avail services like for the subjects like strategic management assignment help etc. In case, if they still need assignment help, they can contact Sample Assignment. It is one of the most popular brands in Australia offering academic assistance for all the subjects and courses that are being taught at university and colleges by assignment help experts.
