* 7 has a simple and easy to recognized micro logo but colors are
really not very nice
* 8 is the one i prefer visually but it's maybe a bit too complex
* 12 E is very nice too and has better micro log but not sure it would
be nice on a dark backgroud
* nice work done for 15 but i find the logo too similar to Atlassian
logo (any basic human based logo would look too Atlassiannish to me i
