Thumbs up New Logos

It's pretty obvious but I thought I'd post something to announce it anyway. You may have noticed the new site logo(s). If you don't see them, hit F5 to refresh your browser cache. There is a new logo up top and the place holder image has been replaced with a DGCR basket logo. The basket has a pencil as the center post which is supposed to represent reviews/the review process.

I think it looks a little UFOish or maybe it supposed to be a quest wildfire. It seems to me it should be swooshing toward the basket on the other side of the header though.

personally I really liked the basket and the bag on the ground.

Thanks for the input. The logo isn't really meant to blend in to the background header, it's just a stand-alone thing that I can use to represent the site. It's a little abstract as far as the disc goes but I thought it worked pretty well.

I like the basket/bag as well.. I'd like to be able to get a "cleaner" image of each. It may be something to shoot for in the future.

Hey guys,

I just replaced the header image on the site. If you guys don't see it, hit Ctrl-F5 to clear your cache so you get a fresh reload of the page. It has the same elements as the original header (basket and bag), just a bit nicer looking IMO.

Thanks It was done in Illustrator by a graphic artist and I went in and tweaked/rearranged afterwards to get it exactly how I want it.

Logo input

Tim,

I hope you don't mind less than positive feedback that's given to improve the site. On a positive note I like the yellow basket and the pine tree in the background. I also like the green swoosh.

Now some constructive criticism...
1) The bag has always looked to me like a box of crayons with a disc in front. When you see the multicolored discs edge on they look like crayons. That was just my first impression.
2) The disc does look like a UFO. It's edge is too thick and it appears to have a dome on top.

Sorry, but that's just how it seems to me. Most people may not even notice, though, and others won't agree.

No problem Lowe, I appreciate the input. The bag is quite a bit better than the old one.. I think it may be tough to draw a good bag or something. As for the disc, I noticed it's a bit thick but it's more of an abstract representation. Although I have a couple of putters with edges like that although no bump on top.

I think overall it is an improvement and it could use a bit of tweaking to make the disc look a little more driver like than putter-like.
