History of the Druplicon logo

After Drupal was initially developed, thoughts turned to the creation of a logo. Of course the concept would have to include a drop, or water in general.

The initial idea was simple: a drop within a circle. It was conceived as an "O" in a fluid "drop".

Somewhat later there was an idea to use a cartoon-like drop with a face. Steven Wittens (UnConeD) created a 3D version, but the idea didn't get too far, mainly because 3D is difficult to work with.
