I always yearn for getting involved with the Open Source community more and helping out with the software projects that are close to my heart. As a business owner and working class citizen with children to feed however, I rarely have time to spare. I recently found myself with a spare 30 minutes so I decided to work up a new Truecrypt logo for a possible future fork.
Truecrypt has always been one of my most valued pieces of software so I was saddened when the developers decided to call it a day and retire the software.
I don’t want this to happen to my beloved Truecrypt and fully support the effort to maintain a future product which is based upon the great code that the Truecrypt dev’s laboured over for a decade.
I know its not much but this small small contribution of drawing work goes out to the wonderful people behind the http://www.truecrypt.ch/ website and the effort to keep the project alive / fork the code.
Rationale behind the logo
I don’t know enough about copy-left licenses to formally give this work a license (someone suggest one please!) but anything I’ve shown on the logo image above is fully unrestricted and I don’t even care about being credited for it. Use it as a springboard to create something better or if you hate it forget that it even exists and move on. I’m just putting 30 minutes of work out there in the wind and going back to some work that puts food on the table 🙂
