One of these three
Tuesday, October 4th, 2005
To narrow down our choices, we’ve focused on submissions in which the word “blogads” is prominent yet spacially compact, legible if not crisp.
We’ll be choosing one of the following three logos. Please speak now or forever hold your peace. Which would look best on our site? (Click the “see in blogads” link to get an impression.) Which would be punchy on a bumpersticker or t-shirt?
1) Carm Hodzic’s Botox. A punchy image loved by many, though perhaps a little nicked.
2) The orange oval created by Kent Smith, a Blogads customer and t-shirt peddler.
3) Scriptive by Karl Frankowski is a staff favorite, though I personally don’t love the colors.
Thank you to the other finalists, particularly those who’ve been so generous with their advice and suggestions. I’m astonished by the level of participation and engagement among logo designers. Just as a record-setter’s pace depends on fast times run by competitors, the strength of the communal effort has made a substantial difference. We aren’t where we thought we’d be, but I’m very happy with the result, both in terms of the logo and the process of building it.
