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 ), 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!
- 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 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…
