Fedora.next Branding Update

So we’ve gone through a lot of iterations of the Fedora.next logo design based on your feedback; here’s the full list of designs and mockups that Ryan, Sarup, and myself have posted: Fedora.next Brand Concept #1 Fedora.next Logo Ideas Iteration Iterating on the Fedora.next Brand Concept #1 Another Quick Idea Marinating My Brain on Fedora.next Logos Dreaming Up Fedora.next Logos Son of More Fedora.next Logos!
