The logo for Swathathra Malayalam Computing, the free software localization and language based software development team based on Malayalam language is now ready. The logo is designed by Ravi Sangamithra along with Hiran Venugopalan and the design is based of the Malayalam letter ഋ [U+0D0B], which is supposed to be the most beautiful glyph in Malayalam language. The glyph is rarely used these days and is not present in any other South Indian language. The logo is designed in two patterns - asymmetric hand generated one and symmetric one. Also a traditional way of writing Swathanthra Malayalam Computing in Malayalam is designed as a part of logo.
The designers thank Nicu, a wonderfully talent artist for his valuable helps for designing the logo and also the SMC team who shared ideas and criticized the design. More details on logo here.
