As you all know, Pangolin has continued to develop and innovate since the core team was voted in. Unfortunately, they took over a brand image that was already damaged from Pangolins original start (Uniswap airdrop, etc ). I have seen many criticize the team for things that they weren’t even involved in yet.
I know the core team is likely looking at rebranding as we speak but I think a new logo is exactly what is needed for a fresh start. Many successful projects on Avalanche take a theme and run with it and do it brilliantly. Trader Joe, Penguin Finance, Lydia Finance, Sherpa Cash to name a few.
I think we could do the same but with a sleeker look. Instead of the Pangolin being playful and small. We make the Pangolin theme mythological and dragon like.
With that said, I think the following logo would be very appropriate to that idea. It’s also beautifully done and shows a Pangolin evolved. It is still close enough to the original logo to be recognizable, but distances Pangolin from past criticisms. It also has an air of being more professional and established.
Before I post the photo, full disclaimer: I know the artist personally. That doesn’t change my thoughts on the above or the fact that this would make an incredible logo for Pangolin.
In order to use his artwork we would need his permission. My proposal is to give him some kind of lump sum payout in Pangolin to make that happen. Since I know him, it would be unfair for me to even suggest a price so hoping the community can discuss it and determine what would be appropriate. That is if the community thinks it is a good idea to change the logo.
