"opened & fixed" logo Answered

Hi everybody,

I think it would be nice to have something like an "opened and fixed" logo. The purpose being to print it as a sticker, then, for example, when you open and fix an appliance, you can put the sticker on it, and when your friends ask, you can delight them talking endlessly about your endeavor. Irony aside, I think it can be an interesting counterpart to the "warranty void if removed" labels, also encouraging people to open and fix their own devices.

There could also be an "opened and hacked" logo.

I was thinking in something simple, like an "O&F" with a circle around, or maybe the circle made of a screwdriver.

I'm writing this due to my lack of design ability, in hope that someone with that ability finds the idea interesting enough to give it a try. Also, what do you think about it? is it a good idea? would you use it?


P.S.: If you think it's worth trying but nobody with technical skills shows up I can try creating a first version on Inkscape.

Oh, I really like this idea. I can never remember what I've opened up in the past (eg was it this toaster I repaired 7 or 8 years ago, or the previous one?). It would be useful to have a sticker to remind myself that yes, not only have I managed to find all the screws to get the cover off before so it must be possible again, but I actually fixed it. Unfortunately, I have no graphic design skills though.

Kinda like that PASSED sticker which may be illegal to remove after purchase.
