We hear you:

Gitlab seems like a cool service, but my god that logo is scary

We have a scary, angry looking raccoon dog logo.

We figured we could use a better representation of GitLab.

Update May 20th:

After careful consideration we have decided that this is our new logo:

new GitLab Logo option A

We like the way it looks in GitLab:

The new logo in GitLab The new logo in GitLab, different color scheme

And compared to the old logo:

New vs. old GitLab logo


The options we didn't pick:

new GitLab Logo option B new GitLab Logo option C new GitLab Logo option D

If you have a better suggestion than one of the ones above, a certain preference or opinion, we'd love to hear it.

The final choice of our new logo rests with Dmitriy.
