The Enyo logo. It's a badge, chevrons, E, modularity, and Palm homage all in one

With new frameworks comes a new logo. Technically neither Mojo nor Enyo had a logo before, but that's because they fell under the rubric of webOS. Now that Enyo is open source, however, it need an identify all it's own. That's where the brand new Enyo logo comes into play.

HP worked a whole lot of symbolism into the logo, though at first glance some it's not so obvious. There's the big E, which is kind of a duh. But the angling and three-dimensionality of the E also gives it a military chevron appearance, a nod to Enyo, the Greek goddess of war. The overall shape is a badge/shield meant to resemble the HTML5 logo (though they stole orange away from Palm here). The three-blocks stacked design for the E is also meant to invoke the modularity of the Enyo framework.

Most blatant is the font, which is nicely rounded yet squarish in a direct and clear homage to the Palm logo of yore. Overall there's been a lot of thought put into a logo that not a log of people are going to see. With so much though put into the logo, we can't wait to see how much has been put into the rest of the Enyo and webOS open source project.
