Sound Logo

Below was an audio collaboration page, intended to be inspiring and a place to collaborate with others to find or create a collection of sound recordings useful for constructing a sound logo for Wikimedia. The Wikimedia sound logo contest was open from September to October, 2022. Thanks to hundreds of Wikimedia volunteers who participated in and supported this project and thousands of people from around the world that submitted their version of the sound of all human knowledge to the contest. With this participatory, open contest, and a community vote, we now have a winner. Have a listen above.

Many recordings below come from Freesound.org and have been clearly released as CC0/public domain on the site. It's also good to find audio that is already on Wikimedia Commons that is dedicated by someone as their “Own Work”.

Please feel free to edit your ideas, themes, examples, audio and anything else below.

Themes and ideas of what the logo could represent are in one column. The next column describes examples of what corresponding sounds could be used to show the themes, while the final columns are high-quality, CC0 or public domain audio recordings. You can play multiple recordings at once to get a sense of what feelings can be communicated by mixing sounds together.

Note: play all sounds at once to hear a combined sound.

The idea here is crowd + typing = enlightenment
