Possible new CCIE logos

Few hours ago i received an email from Cisco, asking certified professionals, to provide feedback on the possible new logos that will represent Cisco career certifications on learning materials, as well as on promotional items such as shirts, hats, and jackets.

The two choices i was given were the following:

©2008 Ipsos Interactive Services
©2008 Cisco Systems, Inc

I personally prefer the 1st one...maybe even more than the current one. On the other hand, the second one would probably be good for stickers.

PS: I hope they do the same (create new ones and give the chance to people to "choose') for the plaque too. The current one sucks!


  1. The first one looks a bit ugly.
    I liked in the second specially the proposed logos for the "whole family" CCNA/CCNP/CCIE all together looks really nice. Just a pity that there is no router in the logo :(

  2. I prefer the second one but I think they should keep the current logo after all it is well recognized

  3. Hmmm I´m one more for the second one... Looks nice, but... I just love the current one!

    Oh boy... well... they´re never going to please everybody! Just hope they choose the one that pleases more guys!


  4. I like the first one of those two. However, it wouldn't make a good medal. I really think they should bring the medal back.

  5. I think the fontsize for the "CCIE" is to large, it looks clumsy. Especially in the upper variant of the logo. Just compare the "CCDE" in the upper right with the "CCIE" one step to the left. It looks like there is no continuous size of the certifications - the "CCDE" looks larger compared to it, doesn't it?

  6. airflow,

    i think you're right regarding the size of CCDE. It seems larger than CCIE. Maybe Cisco is trying to promote subconsciously its new certification ;)

  7. Being a newly minted CCIE I think these new logos suck big time! I like the retro look of the original.

  8. Hi Tassos,

    I've been following your blog for almost a year now and I'm on track for the Lab only that I have a whole lot of distractions, IP media broadcasting, MPLS and other solutions taking the bulk of my time. Can I have your email address so that we can communicate whenever possible? You can reach me on greatxsi at gmail dot com, then I will give you my official email address.

    Keep this up.

    As for the Logo, I'm not going with the others on the "second one" thingy but I have to admit the 2nd one is more like it.



  9. As it seems, Cisco went with the first one:

    Nice ;)
