I found the same, so I started a proposition.

The CentOS Logo is the main visual representation of CentOS Project. It
is very important to have very well defined that visual representation
over different backgrounds and available sources in order to let people
improve it and propagate it along each CentOS visual manifestation
(Websites, Promotion, Distribution), in the "correct way". The "correct
way" of propagating it needs to be described publicly somewhere (maybe
in our wiki).

I think that CentOS needs a "Corporate Visual Identity Manual". Some
sort of guide that let people have a reference for doing the needed work
in a organized manner visually. Also define what visual structure we are
following. How it is built and how it could be propagated. For example,
in the Distribution area, Fedora project had do it very well in the
following wiki page:

I could organize what I have somewhere on our wiki for others to check
and improve, if you are interested on it.
