All-New ROS2 Navigation Logo!

Hi all, friendly neighborhood navigator here.

I wanted to tell you about some hot news! The Nav2 system has an all-new logo and branding (referred to as “Nav2” no longer “Navigation2”) that we’ll be expanding in the coming days and weeks. For a quick first look timed to be released with ROS World 2020, here’s the new Nav2 logo and wireframe:

It’s also now reflected on our README and documentation https://navigation.ros.org!

This was all made possible by the awesome people that purchased the ROS Jackets earlier in the year. The proceeds of that were used to work with a designer to create these awesome graphics. I couldn’t be more happy with how it turned out and by user surveys, most of you agree! I know, I know, Nav2 doesn’t work with hot air balloons (yet :slight_smile: ), but its a really aspirational goal and I think a logo like this is both literally and symbolically uplifting. I hope that it can help bring our community to new heights and give a bit of professional polish. Before I descend into even worse puns, I bet you have a question you’re flying at your keyboard to ask:

What’s next? Oh boy, thanks for asking

  • Tee Shirts!
  • Socks!
  • Enamel Pins!
  • Collectable Commemorative Plates!
  • Permanent Face Tattoos!

Well, perhaps one or two of those are hyperbolic, but I will be excited to make some stickers and pins :slight_smile: If people in the community would like other Nav2 swag, I’m sure I can make it happen. I’m starting to have my gears turn a little bit for ROSCon 2021 if we can arrange some hot air balloon rides…

Happy Ballooning,

Steve

Maybe it is a better idea to start with temporary face tattoo stickers first…

Go big or go home; we like to take big swings here in the Nav2 community :wink:

Love the logo! Definitely the best new logo I’ve seen in the past few weeks :smiley:
This would look great on swag. This might even be enough motivation for me to finally start attending the working group meetings to feel justified in owning the swag :stuck_out_tongue:

The swag has started… If you’re in the SF Bay Area and you want a Nav2 sticker, let me know!

(I don’t think I’ll fill out international shipping forms for stickers)

Hi @smac

I am not in the bay area… but here in Europe, we want also some Nav2 stickers for our laptops :wink:

Send me the design and I could print some…
