Java has its little line drawing of a cup of coffee. Also, it has Duke. http://www.sun.com/960901/images/JAVA.85.GIF http://java.sun.com/products/jndi/javaone98/art/duke_tag.jpg
GNUstep has its step/circle graphic. http://www.gnustep.org/images/logo.png
Where’s the cute logo for Cocoa? I suggest an art-deco image of an eggplant. For what it’s worth, all the O’Reilly books have used a dog so far. Hard to say, but it looks like a scruffy black or chocolate lab. According to the colophon of the book, it’s an Irish setter for Cocoa in a Nutshell and Learning Cocoa. Building Cocoa Applications has a mastiff.

How about a chocolate lab on a mug filled with cocoa? Now all we need is an artist to render it. ;-)
We could always resurrect the little monster named “Wacko” from Apple’s previous project, KidSim (better known as “the other Cocoa”). http://homepage.mac.com/redbird/cocoa/wacko.png
[Shouldn’t CocoaDev automatically display PNG’s in addition to JPEG’s and GIF’s?]
That little monster is too cool for words. We NEED to put it somewhere. Or else Peanut Butter Jelly. (For those who don’t get out much, PBJ is a dancing banana with a really annoying, but horribly catchy song and dance.)
Maybe not - having a logo out-of-the-gate that’s associated with ‘annoying’ probably wouldn’t be good.
Good point… but Wacko the little monster is still way cool.
personally this has been and always will be the logo for Cocoa –zootbobbalu
Ahh good ol’ Google:
Hey, that’s a good one!
I always thought a chocolate fish would be good… since it contains Cocoa and ought to swim in Aqua. Or a mocha for the Java Cocoa people.

I’ll second the fish, though I’d go for something more cartoony: http://homepage.mac.com/d.j.v./CocoaFish.jpg –DustinVoss
I drew my own fish before I got a real snapshot, so if you like it a bit more cartoony:

I always liked the conceptual Diagram of an object in the original O’Reilly Cocoa Book. Perhaps combined with a Jaffa Cake http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabaster/A185104 (or http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/classic/A185104 if you prefer the ‘Classic GOO’ theme, which AngelaBrett does.)

nothing like a few antique cocoa tins – jimcath
Why don’t we just use the XCode icon, or another dev tool icon? Or this http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/firstgarden/planning/dictionary/images/eggplant.jpg –JoshaChapmanDodson
How about a Cocoa Damselfish:
Here we go. http://pixikon.com/images/cocoa.jpg –JoshaChapmanDodson
We could use this:
Lets just call the ADC logo the CocoaLogo. –JoshaChapmanDodson —- That would imply that all Mac development is Cocoa.
As for that Linux fish, I prefer Darwin http://www.EvolveFISH.com/fish/media/E-Darwin.gif not that it’s any more Cocoa-specific than ADC… which is why I still prefer my chocolate fish. – AngelaBrett —- Ok, OK, why don’t we use the ADC logo and add the word cocoa some where in the image. –JoshaChapmanDodson
How bout’ this http://pixikon.com/images/other/logo.jpg –JoshaChapmanDodson
Why not a montage of most of the Cocoa apps produced by Apple? –JoshaChapmanDodson
Feel free to use this one if you want. Merry Christmas! http://www.timestretch.com/Cocoa.gif http://www.timestretch.com/Cocoa.png
