According to this question we should discuss our site's style, including the color scheme and logo. These are a few of the questions we should answer:

  • What's the theme of the site? (sophisticated, airy, friendly, etc.)
  • What colors should be used on the site?
  • What color should the background be?
  • What should our logo be? (ideas and rough sketches are fine; most of us aren't artists)

    I'd just like to comment that the AskUbuntu site is extremely good looking. Excellent job! Dec 28 '10 at 22:37

It would seem to me as though the site should follow the new Ubuntu design. There is a design document available (supplemental to the Ubuntu Brand Guidelines) that outlines all the different logos, colors, and various elements and their meaning.

Personally I think some branding ala the Canonical standards is needed for the header to ensure users realise it is an officially supported Ubuntu site. However, I also think keeping it clean and simple like now is very very important because the basic stack overflow/exchange schemes are part of their success.

Therefore I would suggest the Logo strip be used, although I have to say I quite like the current light blue sketched logo!

How about half way between the two?
