I've been working on this little project lately of making a new logo for codeforces, just for fun. The link to check it out is below, and please send your feedback.

Edit: Just a little side note for those unfamiliar with behance: You can scroll down to see the whole presentation.

It's nice! Maybe try to preserve the original codeforces colors in the logo?

    Tried various ways to implement the original colors, but none none of them seemed to work. If I come up with a good way, I'll put in the project.

      Oh wow, that is nice! Maybe adjust color distribution though, there are fewer reds than blues on Codeforces, except during New Year :)

      After doing some color changes:

      It also represents, rating scenario here on Codeforces.

        Not that I'm against LGBT, but I feel the rainbow colors unmatching and out of place in the 'Codeforces' text. And the graph colors are red-blue-green 'coder colors', they don't really match either.

          I think they are not rainbow colors, but rather rating colors in decreasing order from left to right. Also in the logo there are three colors from each Division here.

            The exact wording or the logic behind this or that color doesn't matter much, red-green-blue don't match, light blue doesn't go around with green and gray, and too colorful logos distract attention from the content.

      Logo is good but just want to ask does this logo means something like something it symbolises?

Can you explain what is the meaning behind that logo? I feel that it suits something math-y like Project Euler more.

    It is meant to represent an ascending rating graph, but in sort of a geometric way.

The logo is cool, but i don't think it goes well with codefoces. The current one is better

It's awesome.

One little advice: if you can differentiate CODE and FORCES part then it would resemble the current one. Like let the CODE part Black and make FORCES part blue ,It will match with the logo of your design and would follow the current design.

I like the logo on its own, but I think it looks too tall compared to the word 'Codeforces'. Maybe increasing its weight and putting the word below the logo works better.

    Thought about it as well, perhaps I should put the name "codeforces" aligned with the bottom of the icon and also reduce the icon size a bit. I'll try and see how it looks and post here.

Very nice! I guess it can be represented in SVG to have good look on each resolution. At the particular angle it looks like swallow, lol). In my opinion it's more original than the current one.

    It is still using it. Probably your browser has the old logo cached somewhere.

      Nope. It first appeared for about 5 minutes, then disappearead for about 2 minutes. And then re-appeared again. He commented when the logo was reverted back to the original for 2 minutes

Am I drunk or the logo really changed to this one? It's cool but it's weird seeing Codeforces with another logo.

Great! Honestly looks better in dark mode though and I think CF would greatly benefit from dark mode like CSES does.

The scripts just aren't the same as a native dark mode.

A great logo! But seriously, they could have gone for an SVG type image as this one looks a bit pixelated. Also it seems they forgot to change the logo in title bar.

It's a cool logo, but I think the previous one fits more with the aesthetics.

I think , the aspect height of the logo and the word "Codeforces" can be improved a bit. Currently it the aspect heights between logo and text is not up to the mark. But I really like the new logo image.

I don't find the logo specifically bad. However, in my opinion it is very inconsistent with the website theme. If there is going to be a rebranding of the whole website to match the round "metro" look of the logo I guess it might ultimately suit the platform, but in the current state I think it looks very out-of-place.
