FAQ written by Brandon Stafford
What is this?
This is a repository of graphics files used by the designers of open source hardware.
Do you own the logo? Did you create it?
No. No. (I did make the SVG files.)
Is this some weird trademark trolling scheme run by an evil corporation?
No. I will be excited to turn over responsibility for this site to the Open Source Hardware Foundation, once it exists. (Added: It does!)
How do I add a file?
Brandon a copy at logo at rascalmicro dot com OSHWA at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want attribution, please include your name and a link.
Will you convert a file to another format for me?
Probably not, but if you tell me what format you want, I’ll add it to the list of requested formats.
What font was used in the original logo?
Nova Mono from Google’s web font repository, but with the anti-aliasing adjusted in Photoshop.
What about the revised logo with the word “source” added? What font is that?
Unknown! Unknown! (Do you know? Tell Brandon: logo at rascalmicro dot com!)
It at least looks similar to DIN 1451 Mittelschrift.
And the color of the logo with the word “source” added? Any idea?
CMYK: 100, 15, 30, 0
RGB: 0, 153, 176

I Love this logo and OSHW! It has been a huge part of my life in the past few years, and I just incorporated it into the latest logo for the BotBQ – The Open Source 3D Printing BBQ.
Thanks for all your work and of course for making it available for us to use as well!
Should You register this logo as a trademark ?.
For anyone using CircuitMaker (which is FOR OSHW), I have created a component which you can place in your designs. Click the link below and add the component to your “Favorites” in CircuitMaker’s library panel, to make it easy to find and place in your OSHW designs.
