Wikimedia is a Great Brand, the problem is that it was never promoted properly.
In fact, the brand / logo is hidden at the bottom of the footer in every page!!
No wonder why people don't know what Wikimedia is!
See the login page of Wikipedia: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fajro/5249248823/
Compare it whith the Flickr login:
(Yahoo! is mentioned 5 times!)
See these logos:
"Gmail by Google": http://www.flickr.com/photos/fajro/5249196367/
"Flickr from Yahoo!":
They don't hide their brands!
Google has links to their other sites in the top of every poge:
Wikipedia "sister proyects" are also relegated to the bottom of the page.
Apple and Adobe have lots of different products but the same header
with their logos always visible.
Wikia shows their brand in every wiki:
Different content, same header.
CAN I HAS VISIBLE BRAND?
I ican has cheezburger?: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fajro/5249799928/
We could just put a button linking to the foundation just below the logo:
I reeeally like the Wikimedia brand.
