Title: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on September 27, 2007, 07:32:26 PM
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

Well, before we can fully assess the circumstance, I think we need to see your idears first ;)  ;D

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.
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on September 27, 2007, 08:35:10 PM
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....

Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: 03Indigo on September 27, 2007, 08:40:13 PM
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 ;)
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on September 27, 2007, 08:43:13 PM
hmmm i wonder who would put a blue and silver sticker on their car.... ::).... ;)

well ya Ill keep fiddling away, and ill post up again when I have more stuff up,
but you like the b^5, as a sticker, (ill try other colors with it.

any thoughts on a website logo change?
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: 03Indigo on September 27, 2007, 08:45:46 PM
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.

Post by: jayryan on September 28, 2007, 08:50:13 AM
I'm really digging the square and round concept. Maybe a bit simpler on the graphic though.
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on September 28, 2007, 09:25:23 AM
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...

Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: jayryan on September 28, 2007, 09:33:55 AM
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.

Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: 03Indigo on October 02, 2007, 07:54:16 PM
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.

ahh, well i guess it didnt even occur to me to look for an old thread... sorry about that....

any new thoughts or suggestions though?...

I was in colorado over the weekend. ahh i miss it so extremely much
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on October 03, 2007, 10:04:31 AM

Post by: jayryan on October 03, 2007, 01:14:03 PM
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.

(http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c287/Acrooks/graphics/b5redsilver.jpg)

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

(http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c287/Acrooks/graphics/2b5black.jpg)

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
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: ianacole on October 03, 2007, 02:06:20 PM
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"?

Post by: redline on October 03, 2007, 02:52:17 PM
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...

Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: 03Indigo on October 03, 2007, 04:03:03 PM
try it without the big brackets as well.

If you want to keep the asymmetry, run the "rmc" up the spine of the "b".
Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: 03Indigo on October 03, 2007, 04:44:45 PM
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.

Title: Re: New RMCB5 logo ?
Post by: amontgomeryc on October 03, 2007, 04:48:11 PM
this is true, I did ponder that when I created it,

ya know its funny, thats the one I spent maybe 5 minutes on.... ::)   meh its ok

Ya, ill do that, and without the brackets would look good...
Ill try having those up sometime tonight or tomorrow.... darn no good yellow bellied essays....  :-\ hehe.... (Kansas Talk)

So, Ive worked on my persuasive essay about belief abit, but this is way more fun.... ;D    and Ive added about 10 more options to the table

all of these however are reditions of the latest idea, trying a little of everything.
I can still go back to the[b^5] if anyone liked that one more, or any other ideas are great....

I will be working on adding color as well...
and the background grey, is sort of a default, view it as the color of the shirt or the tinting of the window, that the logo sits on.

I LOVE the faded gray brakets and the dropped B on #5 but I love the white "b" and full web addy in #8 I think I lean simply towards adding the brakets to #8. It's simple with clean lines, recognizable, straight-forward, and would work with any color car or coffee mug, or t-shirt (I think exceptionally well on clothing)

Then make me one without the web addy that simply says B6 LOL ;D

Okay, so these are mostly adjustments from combingin # 5 and 8   any other ideas from anyone?

sounds good, the only thought, is that the { shaded brackets behind, would not work too well on say a sticker on a tinted window, nor would a black 5 and rmcb5, any thoughts on how to correct this possible problem, and then I think it will be done.... 8)

Aaron, I like what you have submitted so far and JR and Jon's input has been great. There are a few more eyes and comments we need to get on these from a few folks that haven't chimed in yet and as I mentioned we are waiting on a few more submissions as I recall.

Keep working away, if I get some time tonight I will take a better look at what you've offered up here and try to give some feedback as well.

I like the one JR likes, but without the brackets....would look funny on a window sticker, etc....and it would be really easy to do multiple colors with that one :)

Mike -

We are a little sidelined with some other items, but it is still important to us. At this time we are done accepting submissions until further notice and we hope to make a decision of some sort in the coming weeks.

Please stay tuned.
