    I like how this one currently has the most votes. A nice combination of the old and new one :)

    Can you change order of colors to red-orange-blue it has more meaning to it.

    we can also make the colour of 'forces' in this new logo be the same colour as the original CODEFORCES logo (a little blueish).

    This one isn't better. I will explain my point of view.
    It is sharper, and not compact. It has much unused space if we put a minimal enclosing rectangle on it. And sharp angles may be less visible when logo is seen from distance, especially bright yellow angle.
    White lines between colors are too narrwo. I suggest to make them wider, otherwise they may be invisible with lower resolution or e.g. printed on a T-shirt.

    Btw, I prefer smallcaps Cᴏᴅᴇғᴏʀᴄᴇs over simple Codeforces.

    Also that logo suites more for U.S. AirForces.

    Is there any way to change the font to fit with the rest of the website?

      To be honest, I'd better change the font of the rest of the site to match the header. That is a difficult task but if the new logo officially gets used, we'll have a chance to modernize the whole design.

IMO it's time to change the logo (10 years with the same logo is too much), but the new one looks weird

    Yeah I thought the new one looks a bit weird too, like it doesn't belong there.

    Maybe because the old one has represented the id of the most well known and iconic sports programming platform since the dawn of the sport? It will be a painful goodbye for sure :)

    Personally I would love to have the fonts and quality of the new logo, but keep the three bars of the old one.

Hi, thanks for writing this blog, currently kowalsk1 and I are working on other design by correcting some color codes and other improvements. It'll be similar to  . Here color ratio is similar to the rating distribution on codeforces (less reds than blues).

    Just testing how it looks when resized to 240px of width as the other logos:


    As for the variation, I think this looks better than the one you proposed previously because there's less 'aggressive' dark red and more light blue. Good job!

    Mind if I update 'Candidate 3' to the new version?

        TBH I don't think the 'forces' part matches the rest of the logo. The logo is minimalistic and quite thin, while 'forces' is much bolder. Maybe leave 'forces' thin and move 'Sponsored by Telegram' a bit lower, such that 'Codeforces' is aligned with the logo?

          I can't seem to imagine such a slim font on codeforces :/. It just looks off to me. UPD:

          Logo looks from my browser

          I think if the logo is going to be changed, the whole web's font must change as well. It's like a face with a one off feature.

        Now I can see a brand new codeforces in making. Good job all. Hope Codeforces team considers these and chooses the best one :)

    It would be cool if the "forces" of "Codeforces" (I mean "Codeforces".substr(4,6)) could be made blue and the first half be black just as the original logo.

    I like this more but tbh I think this new color distribution kinda breaks the idea behind the logo.. iirc from the original blog, it was supposed to mean "growth" where you start blue and climb to top until you're red.

Candidate 7 (original):

After looking for inspiration, I've finally found the perfect placement to represent the logo. The blue bar represents how people with more skill can help those who struggle with their problem solving. If this vision becomes a reality, I believe that this platform will become better for this growing community.

I do apologize for the ratio, but this masterpiece needs a wider resolution, which is also one of its purposes, to attract a wider audience and introduce them to this platform.

I think a paint splash (yellow,blue,red) kinda design will look cool too
