We need a logo for our open source software project Ditto – https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/iot.ditto
Eclipse Ditto is a technology implementing a software pattern called “Digital Twins” which we would also like to see reflected in the logo. A digital twin is a virtual, cloud based, representation of his real world counterpart (real world “Things”, e.g. devices like sensors, smart heating, connected cars, smart grids, EV charging stations, …). But those twins are not limited to devices, therefore we speak more generically of "Things".
The technology mirrors potentially millions and billions of digital twins residing in the digital world with physical “Things”. This simplifies working with IoT (Internet of Things) for software developers as they do not need to know how or where exactly the physical “Things” are connected. They can just be used as any other service in the web via their digital twins.
The name of the project has the meaning of the English “ditto”: the same thing again / as has been said before
The name emphasizes the mirroring / twin aspect as key purpose of the technology.
The Ditto project is part of a larger ecosystem of open-source projects called “Eclipse IoT”. The Eclipse IoT website is available at http://iot.eclipse.org and the logo of Eclipse IoT is attached to the brief – while not mandatory, we encourage designers to provide logos that convey the idea of Ditto belonging to the Eclipse IoT brand.
