I agree, it's a really creative exercise, everyone throwing designs and ideas into the pot, firing off each other. :dance:


Yeah, I really like that sort of creative exercise where everyone's firing off each other…

… but I hate cleaning up afterwards.

Does the notion of Occam's Razor do anything for ya? Lettering on a razor blade... Too obscure.

That's why you make sure to fire off first and leave before everyone else.

Judging by the beard in your avatar it doesn't always seem to work!

Hmm. Carved trajan-ish capital lettering on classical stonework, as if over the doorway of the Parthenon? (Thus doubly 'capital'! Ho ho! Capital!) Suggestive of Socratic enquiry?

Sort of a mathematical thing, perhaps playing on rational numbers:

rational
------------- .org
skepticism

(An integral sign at the front would hold it together nicely, but wouldn't make a lot of sense without more typology...)

Life;

Can you give us a little more of what you are looking for in terms of the objectives for the new logo?

1) What is the key message? Do you want to keep the current "lifeboat" tag-line theme, or has the forum moved past that? If so, what's the medium/long term tag-line goal?
2) Are you looking for edgy, modern, conservative, traditional, cutting-edge, avant garde, safe... etc. Is anti-theism/religion/woo to be a feature of the design?
3) You mentioned likely usage, but if the logo is to be printed, then potential printing costs should be a consideration if multiple colors are used. Do you want a single color, 2 colors or more? Obviously, the more colors, the greater the reproduction cost when printing.

Thanks
- Paul
