Maybe something like this...? Or maybe not. Applied a small 3D effect to the logo... (and now I just realized it looks a bit like an animal head with its tongue out :lol:)
Loosening the grip a little NAO ?..Seem to recall you were fairly rigid in yr requirement re. introduction of additional effects to logotype. Your baby I what you will...You have my blessing.
...I guess it also reminds me of Bloc's first logo attempt, with a small 'cut' in the first 'e'
Sent original via PM. - Let me know if you encounter any probs.
...Which won't last forever (although I'm consid'ering making a custom Wedge skin that will try to emulate the best features of's current theme.)
Cant wait...When's the official release and will it incorporate a transparent backdrop - Just love what is able to be achieved with them. Can make a plain looking site so much more interesting.
...The 'we' is either 'Pete and I', or 'Communities' as built with Wedge. It's not supposed to represent any links to SMF. ;)
I stand corrected!
That's a possibility. There's also the slogan, though... ;)
Each to his own NAO...You have a slight EDGE on he final say :eheh:
But isn't it deformed, here?
Not sure what you mean by deformed NAO, as far as Im aware Eras has been around for quite a while. Although its a derivative of early Roman linotypes which I assume is what you mean by deformed etc - A number of major players as referenced in the following link have utilized same in telecomunications, web and other forms of TV and other forms of general advertising. Im unaware of the ins and outs on the fonts suitability for your target audience. But from what ive read this doesnt appear to be an issue. -Is there something Im missing out on?

Hi Nao,

Here are the other logos I promised. You have to remember theyre concepts only and may require some additional work if need be. The blemish you refer to occurred during conversion from original artwork to an alternative format. A minor fix. I figured Id put them up as is as they were already created @ time of our discussion.

I chose slightly darker coloring to compliment the boards existing scheme particularly, as I believe a websites logo should stand out as its the first object visitors relate to before viewing content. Not to mention the fact that its representative of your collective efforts and as such should not go unnoticed. Not saying thats the case but the more eyecatching your logotype is the better it will be for you in the long run. So yeah the one years deliberation is something you'd have to go through unfortunately.

Anyway, as for concepts I deliberately kept it close to the final as mentioned. You will notice theres slightly more subtle difference in coloring in "we dge" but its still visible, I also wanted to emphasise Wedge is a forked version of in WE and them or EDGE. And to bring it home thats what I ended up with.

As for my indulgence in "Forum" subscript, I felt a more abbreviated approach was needed and to highlight the fact that it is exactly what this site stands for..."Forum Software"...Its more balanced in terms of logo presentation and gets to the point.

Ah the font..Eras - I find it pleasing to the eye and as professional a font as Helvetica, Arial and other industry standards. As I said the following examples are concept in nature but even so clean lines is what I get out of it. A matter of preference I guess. Can posssibly be reduced to 120px in height sos to blend in a bit more. Without further adu..I present the remainder.
