Here is my submission. I don’t like bloat so I tried to make a simple boxed V logo, but ended up with the following:

Hello Everyone!

You’ve just 9 days to showcase your imaginative ASCII artwork. Make sure you post your ASCII artwork by replying to this thread. Please help us pick a WINNER !

Thank you!!!

Hi All,

This is my submission. My intention was to add a little fun to the banner, by adding some fire (referring to firewall) implying how fire can burn anything in its way (powerful) and tried to keep it clear & acceptable in a professional environment. this is the image for the art:

this is how it would look like in VyOS (I didn’t know how to keep it colored):


Hi all,

Here are my submissions.

I tried to stay close to the current VyOS logo and made some variations in font type. I’ve kept the current login text which is currently distributed with VyOS and made sure the logo fits within 80x25 characters space, including the text.

To ensure the variants work in various circumstances I’ve tested them with multiple type of terminals. They all seem to work good in multiple terminals. I only noticed minor changes like the blocks having a little spacing in between them instead of touching each other, or certain characters that tilt a bit more, but overall idea stays the same.

The actual ASCII is available on request. Happy to hear what you think about it.





Here’s my attempt. wanted to keep it simple but informative, while avoiding special characters that might be rendered weird depending on terminal/font.

So I made an attempt using the VyOS β€œV” but to expand it into β€œVyOS”.

No idea which font and size is being used originally so that should be adjusted for (used Arial Bold in size 192 in my example).

Saved as 1024x512 png and then converted at Image to ASCII: Free ASCII Art Converter using β€œASCII gradient” set to β€œCode Page 437”.

Would still need to be adjusted for 80 col width instead of 90 col but still:

The png used attached below.


This is the first time I’m creating an ASCII β€œart”. I’ve gone with a simple design of VyOS acting as router/firewall connecting the LAN with the cloud/Internet. Tried my best to fit the art within the max 80x25 characters limit.
