Thanks for the thoughtful feedback!

Regarding the "ideal" logo, our thoughts were to introduce Freedombox
flowers as a theme simple enough that people could create other versions
within it.

For example, this first batch showed you could vary colors, open or
close the box, include wifi waves or not, etc.

We also envisioned versions with different varieties. These first ones
are like tulips, but others could be like roses, orchids, carnations,
etc, perhaps representing different hardware, software, etc. These are
simple and angular, but others could have more detail, look more
hand-drawn, etc, depending on context.
