    There were some recent threads on issues with logos not being on flyers,
    and some recent threads on website changes.

    It got me to thinking that perhaps our main logo needs an update. ???

    The logo is very nice for low-res and 2 colors, like on T-shirts.
    But it looks rather dated on the website.
    Compare it with RC, R2R, and a lot of others.
    Ideally keep it similar for recognition, but modernize and kick it up a notch.

    After a quick search, it does appear that this issue came up a few times in the past with little success.
    But not recently, so worth a thought.
    Maybe there are some new graphic designers out there.
    Obviously not a high priority problem though.

    If we have it in the budget. I would really like to see what our graphic artist (who did the new BAP poster) could do with a new BAR logo.

    Yeah, I think we need an update to the logo. We'll definitely need something Retina-worthy, especially for the new forum.
     
  5. We've got to have a few talented and passionate graphic designer in our midst - anyone willing to lend a hand?

    Kinda nit-picky there...

    The mistake was because the full sentence did mention multiple threads, (flyer + website),
    but then I edited it, and it ended up with a grammar problem.

    FYI we are currently working on updating our current logo. I would say were 80% complete.

    Nav has been doing a great job designing it :)

    Thanks again!

    I'll send Nav my take on Sunday... I've been swamped, but I did play with it a bit. A little kerning on a few of the examples really helped them.

    We've run through multiple iterations and sorta finalized a logo internally. I'll email you what we have and would like to get your thoughts...

    @Nav can you please send the fonts used. Of the ton I have in my folio, that is one family I do not have.

    My time just got really tight (more on that later) so if I can get the font family, I'll do the edits I suggested and pass it back to you.

    Just looked at our BOD thread and the font families are:
    • Exo2.0-Medium.otf (font)
    • Exo2.0-Regular (font)

    Thanks, got it. Ugh, sorry Nav.. once I saved them, I realized (due to error message) that you had already sent them :( I've been fighting a sinus headache for a week, so I'm not all here.

    I'll play with it tonight. BTW, I like the banners being produced for the forum, for events and what not. Nice touch!
