I see, you are a big fan of LibreOffice. I mean your icon on
documentaton cover page in kicad.pdf. This graphics are very well
inspired of LibreOffice logo. But. What is good for word processing
software, ins't sometimes good for an EDA software suite.

I'm not a graphic designer. :(

Just remove this blue background.

Did You remember the older logos of Ubuntu or Kubuntu? Font, reflection
under text... Just compare. See where will be the problem?

My Kicad examples/proposal you can find in doc repository for a few
weeks. Nobody said no, so I cotinue my work to create a polish one.
Offical colour of LibreOffice is green. Why green should be good for
KiCad too? Why LibreOffice templates should be good?
