Incorrect: inkscape, Ink Scape, Inkspace, InkScape

Tagline

Draw Freely.

  • watch capitalization, and don't forget the full stop. The tagline is trademarked.

Logo Treatment

Colors:

  • 1-color: Prefered colors (in order of preference) are black (on lighter backgrounds), or white (on sufficiently dark backgrounds). The snowcap and rim line knocked out (transparent).
  • 2-color: The mountain and ink should be black, and white (for the snowcap and rim line)

Fonts

The font to be used for the word 'Inkscape' is Linux Libertine O Regular.

The original handwriting font (available here: http://www.paratype.com/pstore/fonts/pushkin.htm) was made by Paratype from the handwriting of Pushkin, the greatest Russian poet of 19th century - who was also an artist, loved to do sketches on the margins of his manuscripts (using ink of course :) Pushkin's characteristic "flying" handwriting style and sketches (mostly profile portraits) are very familiar to anyone speaking Russian. For licencing reasons, the font was changed to Euphoria Script in 2015.
