The following requirements exist for the logo of H+Pedia:

  • The logo should be square, or near square, in order to fit into the design of the page template
  • The logo should support the creation from it of a smaller "favicon" that can appear in web browser tabs
  • The colour choice should be congruent with the colours used on the H+Pedia main page
    • The colours on the main page could be changed in line with any new colours used by the logo

As well as featuring on H+Pedia pages, versions of the logo will also appear

Transhuman Tees has set up a sub-domain on TALFeed to test potential logos and skin/CSS options at http://wiki.talfeed.com

July 2015

An initial placeholder logo was created by David Wood on 17 July 2015. This incorporated elements of Humanity+ branding:

October 2015

A new placeholder logo was put in place in October 2015, removing the distinctive Humanity+ 'h+' symbol, since at that time, it was unclear to what extent H+Pedia would become an official project of Humanity+.

The new design sought to include a suggestion of an underlying globe, similar to the design of the main Wikipedia logo:


Shortly afterwards, a "favicon" based on the same design was introduced for the first time for the site:


Note: the actual favicon used is a shrunk-down version of this logo.
