Logo competition entry.......
I think there's a bit more to it than that. Icthus is the greek word for fish - the letters inside the icon shown show that - and the first two letters (IC) are also the first two letters of Jesus Christ (allowing for I/J being the same letter)Originally Posted by russdev
This is so much more fun than trying to install crap Skills for Life software :-)
Logo competition entry.......
Well word icthus comes what you say which is word fish in Greek. But original symbol for it was believed to be this:-Originally Posted by srochford
Fish was used a replacement later on either as place to mark either secret meeting place or as secret handshake..
Wikipida article has full low down on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthys#Symbolic_meaning
But as in most history all very subjective...
here's my 2p. Black and blue to start with.

Came up with my idea for a design tonight while buying some 24 packs of beer
just a rough draft, i can do it better tomorrow when we have some sun light in the kitchen.
I dont think that one contains only web safe colours :P
Hey i was been creative.... besides.... i like to push the boundriesOriginally Posted by ChrisC
would you consider my awsome design for a T-shirt??
The more ink on a CYMK screen print the more expensive...we're not made of money! Could you make it greyscale?
Joking of course. I'm a student...the loans would cover colour prints. lol
I don't know ... go away to Nice for a few days (back early ... had some ice cubes made from dodgy water and neither my wife or I have been that good since).
I like the logos for t-shirts and impact. I still really like the present logo but agree that the colours need a rework to make them work for t-shirts, mugs, letterheads, business cards.
I was one of the few that bought the original t-shirts and I still wear them out and about. Then again I also have a complete set of the "O'Really / BoFHcam" t-shirts, some interesting Simpsons t-shirts ... and not forgetting the Fabulous Furry Freak brothers ... it took me ages to get those ones back from my brother.
I don't have a problem with stylising parts of the logo to make an iconic symbol (EG or the two Es with horns) and then have further logos for other uses. That can be used for tiepins, cuff-links and so on.
But then we get to how we want to market EduGeek. Yes, we have to market it to several industries. We have to market it to members working in school, we have to market it to management in schools so that the advice being shared by members is valued, we have to market it to Local Authorities and Govt agencies to gain their support (and access to resources) and then we have to market it to business that can provide extra resources, advice, training, discounts and support to members (and yes ... that includes sponsorship and advertising).
That is a wide audience to cater for. When you consider that some companies or organisations with our site hit rate would be paying marketing and design companies to sort all this out we are bound to have to look at different methods of targetting groups.
On a personal note I like red, yellow and black on t-shirts but do not find it attractive on a light coloured web page. But it would fit in very well with a dark (actually a black) based theme to the site.
The tag line? I think that you keep it as short as possible and the present one describes what the site does in pretty much the fewest number of words.
The tagline should be:
"EduGeek...keeping techies from doing real work every day since ......."
I don't know what date it's since...
Edugeek.net - the network of educational geeks.
(said in a slow, deep, voice-over tone..)
/me wonders how much James Earl Jones would cost to come and do a voice over for the EduGeek tagline....
Hehe, a lot I'd imagine!! Redd Pepper would be good though.. if he's good enough for film trailers! Unless any of our resident Edugeekers have exceptionally low voice-over-grade voices?
There'd be some software to do it i'm sure.
I'm sure there's some freeware stuff out there, but you were right, there is some software that can do it.Originally Posted by Joedetic
