I am designing a logo for a home built app which displays free WiFi coverage in my city. But, because I'm better at programming than designing, I'd like to hear some suggestions. I already have a basic setup.


It looks a little messy to me but I don't really know what to change. I would like to keep the cell tower, which is surrounded by the canals of my city. I am using GIMP.

    What if you have the wifi tower emerging from the center of the canal shape, with normal wifi signal shapes emitting from it? The multiple-canal thing definitely complicates the image. – Pixeltramp Dec 8 '14 at 22:26
  • are the canals mirrored in shape like that in reality? – DA01 Dec 8 '14 at 22:33
  • @DA01 This is based on a real map, just Google for "Leiden" – niels Dec 8 '14 at 22:34
  • The overall shape is great...that does mirror Leiden well and is likely very identifiable. So I think that does work in the context of the people that would see this (which I assume are folks that are in Leiden) – DA01 Dec 8 '14 at 22:37

    I wonder how many residents would know what that outline refers to? I certainly couldn't tell you what my city's outline looks like. – Scott Dec 8 '14 at 23:17

A logo should be simple, clean, and neat. It should be directly representative of your app name.

Here's an example: logo

    You should try to curtail your answers to deal directly with the question's content itself instead of providing a generic example. In this case, how can the logo provided in the question be improved? – Zach Saucier Dec 9 '14 at 15:01
  • There absolutely no need for a logo to directly represent the app name. – DA01 Dec 9 '14 at 18:09
