New design of Yii

Finally, we have to make a decision and choose one of the designs to be applied to this site. We are reluctant to give up the others, but we have to. We hope our site can take the new look before the highly anticipated version 1.1 is released.
We will keep this board open. You are welcome to post your new design and let others know how you perceive Yii.
And here is the finalist, Fred Wu, who proposed the following logo and design:
Please let us know if you have any suggestions or advices on this design.
Thank you very much!

P.S. This site design (not logo) looks more serious and stylish to me: http://www.yiiframew...,3016.msg0.html (just imho )

Please don't do that. Coloured backgrounds are hard to deal with. Skeleton's current theme with its white and clean background is easier to customize.

Although, I don't get the idea of the logo like others. What is this... shape... supposed to mean? I think more spirit should be communicated through it.

- The design philosophy is simple and elegance. The logo is a simplified and enhanced version of the original Yin Yang / Mouse shape. The mouse shape in the new logo is made intangible intentionally so that people won't be mistaken the project with computer hardware companies.
- The hidden 'Y' is a feature of the logo.
- Two vivid colours (orange and light green) are used to represent creativeness and energy, along with a dark grey to represent stability.
- A regular Myriad Pro typeface is used for the logo, with rounded edges to enhance the connection with the graphic.
