New logo!



The logo I commissioned for Plover is done! Steno mavens will please note the eponymous feather pattern on the left wing. Logo design by Laura Lake, freelance illustrator. Font is ButterBrotPapier by Anke Art.

Now, I know it's generally traditional to name little animal logos that represent FLOSS projects. I'm not sure what, though. I was thinking of holding a competition for the longest (in terms of letters and/or syllables) common name that can be reasonably represented in one stroke on the steno keyboard. So something like KHREUFRD for Clifford or KHRAEURPBS for Clarence will do, but your invented SKWRO*EPBT brief for Jonathan doesn't count. Or we could leave the little guy nameless; I'm not particular. The main thing is we've got a logo. Now to print up some business cards for the next hacker/steno/accessibility conference I go to...

And remember that this bird ain't necessarily a he! Dolores (TKHRORS) is definitely an option.

TKPWHRAEUL (Gale or Gail)also works, and because the bird kind of looks like a nightingale...
Hi, I'm an extremely new student in court reporting, as in, I'm halfway through StenEd Theory and not extremely focused on speed-building new. However, I'm a little excited/apprehensive about the software. It will be perfect for me to practice over holiday break, and even in my free time in classes, but is there an instruction manual?
I haven't tested it out yet so I'm not sure the difficulty level or how familiar I should be with steno software. Any help is greatly appreciated!
You can e-mail me at JillPalmerThinks@gmail.com
Thank you and another thank you for making it FREE!

Oops! In my excitement, I spelled Gale wrong!
It's TKPWAEUL.
See, I am new!

A bit late to the party, but do you have a .svg version of this image? Is this the maximum resolution?

Mirabai Knight said...

Sure!

Awesome! Thanks Mirabai.

I am (slowly) cooking something up at the moment that is plover-related, and this certainly helps (hint: the svg is for the system tray icon). If/when it's ready I'll reveal the project on the aviary.
