SourceForge.net is the world’s largest open source software development web site. The Graphic Order was approached by Geeknet and SourceForge to re-design their logo and branding elements.

It was clear from the brief that the branding needed to be more unified and draw upon a industrial forging look and feel.

The logo was designed to be recognizable as SourceForge, whilst remaining subtle enough not to clash with other software brands found on the website. The end result is a clean crisp logo with a neutral color palette, unified typography and brushed metal treatment.
