Just a note, but most projects don't have their own logos. I know ZAP has
one, but the suggested actions also talks about "non-flagship high
visibility projects", and you kindly mention "Cornucopia" perhaps because
of the interest from organisations buying copies of the printed decks. But
Cornucopia doesn't have a logo - it has a name only. We didn't need or
want a project logo previously.
