Origin story of the Techlore logo

Does someone know where the Techlore pinguin logo come from ? I want to know the lore behind this :sweat_smile:.
And why the surrounding 4 colors a la Google ?

Welcome my man.
Also please, I guess the penguin from Linux with Tux, but the colors, I need to know.

This isn’t some anime guys you’re not gonna get 35 episode origin story for a freaking logo. The designer at Techlore thought of making it the way it is and that’s it. The end. Get some fresh air y’all.

Maybe it was the same deal than his love for lemur :sweat_smile:.
Or just Linux themed but the channel was already general tech oriented and not Linux focused

Tux + the colors used (around tux) on other linux distributions ( like ubuntu, fedora and opensuse). That is my best guess.

The original goal was to have a unification of the three major desktop operating systems. The round logo + ring from MacOS, Tux from Linux, & it’s actually the Microsoft colors (which happen to be very similar to Google)

With time this branding/logo makes less sense as things are pretty focused on privacy/security.


Thanks you very much for the insights.
Has the macos logo ever been round ? And with a circle ? I couldn’t found any trace of this

I think Henry is referring to the ring around the version logos, such as:
