New RMCB5 logo ?
« on: September 28, 2007, 12:32:26 AM »
what are your thougths on the idea?
I dont mean to step on anyones toes, but I though that it might be nice to update our website logo, and maybe find a new sticker,
 I have a few things I have been playing with. But would like to know what you all think about the idea

Aaron,

Glad you chimed in I was just about to send you an email. When you have something you'd like to submit let me know. We are getting some samples from some other folks as well.

I like the B super script 5 idea...and would not mind seeing renditions and variations of that.  2 colors, simple, graphic, and iconic all at the same time :)

well done Aaron, keep 'em coming.

thanks, I will upload a few more when they are a bit more complete,

do you think that they should be more horizontally based or, symetrical, round, or more 'boxy'?
theres a few more renditions of the B^5 that I will work with and get up asap....

linear, no, the asymmetry is what is appealing of it, not bubbly, but not blocky either, bold, strong, but edgy....modern, flowing, and graphic in nature.  Something like that.

Colors I would like to see are black and red.  White and red (to show up on tinted windows), or white outline and red.  Silver and red, and white and blue, for those of us that like blue ;)

also with the B^5, try an over lap thing with them as well, see where that leads.

Aaron, our hope is to come up with something uniform that can be used for the logo, shirts, and stickers. We are open to having a logo and a variant for stickers or something like that.

It also needs to be something that can be used with color and b&w ideally. Again, we are open to ideas.

I guess with this thread we have been talking about this behind the scenes too so I guess if anyone has ideas they want to submit please feel free.

I'm really digging the square and round concept. Maybe a bit simpler on the graphic though.

Alright, thanks for all the feedback,   do you have any pictures of what you were thinking of otherwise?
and ill keep working on the B^5, i think that one has alot of potential.   any others that would be worth my time playing with

it might be a wile before I update pics on the site, (since I am a college student, and have uhh other prioraties.... ::)....) but are there any ideas of what youd like to see, other than what I have?

and as far as the graphic goes, It is way to 'busy' but my thought for that one was the website banner.   I'll see if I can make it more simple...

I'm still digging the simple "logo" idea: the club formerly know as....LOL

I like the simple color scheme...tones of white/grey with one thing in color like light blue, red etc...the red "5" is dope.

yeah, we discussed a new logo, but never really had anything jump out at us, and we all got busy with life, no it kinda got dropped.

I love these two. I really do. Perhaps make them a bit more compact without so much space between them? I'm digging it. Then you can do a simple - Rocky Mountain Club B5 or whatever at the end that becomes a simple brand/logo.



I think on this one though, I'd put the "RMC" on top of the "B" and maybe add a splash of color.



If I didn't have the Audi "DOPE" sticker on the center back of my window, this is what I'd rock in a heartbeat. It'd look great on shirts too...dead center of the chest...maybe then the name across the top back of the shirt or something. Although now that I'm looking at it...you can make me one that has a "6" instead of a "5" :P

What would this one look like with the bottom of the "b" even with the "5", and the "rmc" above the circle part of the "b", even with the top of the "5"?

wow, you've really been working on this. I like the last one. Maybe put the B5 and rmcb5.com from the last on into the {} from the 5th one.

I'll try this, its a really great Idea I think...

The only thing is that the offcenterness of the b5 makes it a bit more appealing, but i'll try it for sure...

If you want to keep the asymmetry, run the "rmc" up the spine of the "b".

if you put the rmc on the belly of the b...like Ian first suggested, you still have asymmetry since the b and the 5 are different text.  with the rmc above the b, it still reads rmcb5...with it below, hard to know what the name is....brmc5.com, b5rmc.com, etc.
