After months of working with the Zsh (Z Shell) team, the project now has a modern logo they can be proud of. It is now on Wikipedia, zsh.org, and Sourceforge.
I want to dedicate this issue to Guist, one of the most talented designers and non-code contributors I have enjoyed working with. Without her, the Zsh project would still be struggling to communicate ownership, quality, and values.
“Zsh has been around [for 32 years] and is widely used — it's great finally to have something to announce ourselves to the world visually. This way we're more than just a word.”
— Peter Stephenson · Zsh Maintainer
"An open source projects logo is important because it communicates ownership, quality, and values."
