I've no real standing here -- this is an observation from the sidelines....

Combining the lambda and the R in this way looks like a very good idea to me.

I can see the point to the original 'r' logo -- it picks up the previous PLT colours, it looks nicely informal (though that particular example perhaps went a little too far, and could look childish), and of course it picks up the 'r' of Racket.  I'm also one of those who thinks it'd be a shame to lose the lambdas, and I think that SF's suggestion here marries several of these desiderata.

With that in mind, I'll suggest a variant of it (born analogue, I'm afraid, rather than as pixels)


The first three seem to be tending towards the florid, but some more rhythmic version of the other three -- variants of 'λr.' -- might be worth closer examination.  I'm aware the last one of the six is starting to look more like lambda-tau.

Best wishes,
