We’re building an awesome product for hosted continuous integration. Yeah, unless you already know what that means, it’s probably not for you. But our logo design process was really fun and here’s a peek at what we did. The product, by the way, is called Canary CI, and it’s going to do for continuous integration what Heroku did for hosting Rails applications.
Pros: The bird is happy, cartoony, fun to look at and is obviously a canary.
Cons: Someone else could buy the same image.
Pros: Fun, lighthearted, cartoony
Cons: It looks like it’d have trouble flying, and we need our bird to connote speediness. And if it were purple, it’d look like Grimace from McDonalds.

Pros: This canary looks like it could fly! Look at its happy face. It makes me feel proud that I haven’t broken the build.
Cons: Could this bird really fly with those wings?
Another win for Colleen.
