Hey guys, I'm a graphic designer who is also a programmer, and I'm interested in updating both the Audacity logo and GUI elements. To start with, I've created a more modern version of the Audacity logo. Instead of making a wild new version of the logo, I've simply polished the current one.

You can preview the new logo here:

It's a vector image, meaning we could create all/any of the new icon images right away.

Thanks for investing your time into such a great program! Hope I'm able to contribute as well.
