A few months ago, I posted two logos on a private topic, I'm not posting the direct link because I don't like Google attempting to follow non-followable links. (Type a slash and then ?msg=291216 after wedge.org, and you should reach the page.)
This wasn't the right place to post them, and they're not accessible to 'regular members' (sorry), but I got some positive feedback on them and I put them aside because I was busy on other things.
Then I remembered the tests, and I did some extra work on them.
The result is at https://github.com/Wedge/
, where you can see a higher res version of the one I'm thinking of using.
I also have alternative versions, like these:
Do you find any of these to be worth it..? I like their simplicity, really. I also like my fixed Lobster font. My original attempts with this (rather ubiquitous) font were a failure mostly because I used an earlier version of the font, and the new version has better weights, with thinner vertical lines. The handwritten aspect compensates fairly for the guttural sound of the 'Wedge' name. I think it also works better in a wider variety of forum footers (unless maybe on a hard-rock oriented forum... Well, even then :P
My only issue with simplicity is that it doesn't catch attention as much as the current official logo, of course. (The one on the wedge.org homepage.) But I like it at least more than the current footer logos.
Also, a few days ago I replaced the badges with simpler, more discrete versions based on this new logo. I think they're so discrete, nobody noticed them, but at least it's more in line with the Wilde style... :lol:
So, I'm now officially fishing for opinions...! (For those new to this topic: don't bother with the poll, it's old and outdated.)
