Hacker News is a famously brand-less site (except for the little "Y" in a box", and the trademark orange).
Came up with this logo concept as part of a Windows 8 demo app that that Elijah Manor built. I did some design work for the interface and created this mock logo concept for the app's OS thumbnails.
Elijah and Mike (appendTo CEO, aka my boss) are demoing the app at Build tomorrow, as part of Mike's talk on Writing Windows Store Apps with jQuery.
Typeface is custom, but based on proportions in Blanch.
*Note: Not commissioned by Y-Combinator, just fictitious work as part of our demo app.

Perfect, if you ask me.
Obvious in retrospect, but it just means that it fits perfectly (and that the hindsight is 20/20). Let's hope pg goes beyond "very good" and actually adapts it for the site.
Thanks for the good words guys. :-)
It's funny how when you look at a design long enough you start to see the flaws. One of the issues with this execution that I might go back and address is the spacing between the outter white box, and the letters - specifically how the left/right padding is a bit less than the top/bottom padding. I think it would be nicer to make it all consistent.
Crisp, clean and understood. Awesome job there bro.
