South Africa open source development company Shorewall wins logo competition


A logo design by South African Gareth Davies has won the Shorewall logo design competition. Davies works at SA open source development company Thusa.

Thusa makes extensive use of the open source firewall tool, Shorewall, in its Vulani server product which is due to be launched in South Africa in February 2009.

Thusa MD Warwick Chapman says that “in addition to contracting the services of Shorewall developers from time to time, Thusa felt it should allocate some time to designer Gareth Davies to have a crack at the Shorewall logo design competition.”

Davies submitted four designs, eventually winning the competition with his third design. Thusa will be launching Vulani in South Africa next month following three years of active development and five years of research and development.
