Yesterday, we told you about CyanogenMod’s decision to create a new mascot/logo to reflect the team’s growth as a more mature group of developers working together on a common project. As it turns out, the design from yesterday was scrapped, and they’ve now come up with something a little bit different, a mascot TeamDouche and company are calling “Cid.” The name came out of decision to come up with an acronym for CyanogenMod ID or C.I.D. for short. The CM team elaborated on their blog:
Some of you may also be familiar with the concept of the “id”, the instinctual driving force behind our personalities. It seemed fitting, that this chaotic force and need for immediate gratification, was incorporated into the image of a OS which strives to be on the bleeding edge of Android development.
Love it or hate, I “get” what Steve and team were going for, even if I don’t particularly find the design attractive. Hey, it’s not my ROM. What do you guys think of this new, new mascot? Great? Terrible? Anything you would change?
