Mapnik has a new logo!
Inspired by the previous logo, the “mapnik” mark is now typeset in open-source Google Font Maven Pro, selected particularly for it’s double story a, dramatic k, and the square tittle over the i. Maven Pro is a modern san-serif font with unique curves and a nice, pronounced rhythm.
Taking note from previous colors, we’ve pick a more vibrant, yet earthy palatte. Featuring a lighter sky blue that balances well with earth-tones and the warmth of traditional topographic map of natural and man-made features.
