The new Thundbird logo presented on https://blog.thunderbird.net/2023/05/introducing-the-brand-new-thunderbird-logo/ is gorgeous and got a lot of positive feedback. But the negative feedback that reacted to the character of the bird seems valid to me - it is a less nice, more aggressive bird. Which seems counter to what Thunderbid wants to be?
I want to show a design where the positive aspects of both logos are merged:
It keeps the new form and colours, but restores the eye, makes the beak smaller (so the bird is closer to a mail carrying pidgin again), adds some structure for the feathers and in the face.
I know the probability of changing an already implemented redesign is close to nil 😉 But who knows, maybe someone likes this design as much as I do and wants to use this.
