I thought I would start this thread to get our members thoughts on possibly having a new club logo designed by a professional graphic artist.  Post up your thoughts, if you like the idea of a new logo, what ideas do you have for it?  Post some pictures of logos you like, what would you like included in the logo?

I think it is a great idea.  Refreshing the logo would be something I would be interested in discussing at our next meeting if there are others interested.

I think it would be cool to somehow keep the "Jesus Rock" that's in our current logo.  The rock is very symbolic in the Bible and works perfectly for this club/ministry.

 

1 Samuel 2:2

"There is no one holy like the LORD; there is no one besides you; there is no Rock like our God.

 

 

2 Samuel 22:2

He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;

 

 

Psalm 19:14

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

 

Isaiah 26:4

Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.

 

My .02.  :)

I agree with Chris.  Definitely keep the "rock" segment in the logo.


Actually, I like our logo just fine the way it is.  But if someone wants to update it, that's cool.  But I think our logo is pretty neat.

My .02 is if it ain't broke don't fix it.  I don't see any reason to spend the clubs money to have it redesigned.  Seems like the money could go to a better cause.

Well the majority at our club meeting last night voted to spend $100 to get a professional graphics artist to give us a few ideas based on some requirements we come up with as a club.  I know we have to spend the $100 to get a few different designs but that doesn't mean we have to change if we don't like what he comes up with better than our current logo.  One problem is that we don't have the vectorized version of our current logo so we are restricted as to what we can get and who does the work.  If we did decide on a different look we would get the right formats so that we could get that image printed as small or large as we might need in the future for everything from business cards to banners. 

 

Some of the discussion last night was around maybe a logo that wasn't vehicle specific but instead had some other type of 4x4 symbolism but still included some type of Christian symbolism as well like keeping the rock maybe but not not having a specific vehicle featured. 

 

This guy has actually done some work for Disney and has done some logos for christian organizations as well.

 

That's the purpose of this thread.  If we did change what ideas do ya'll have.

I was thinking something like Maybe the Jesus in rocks with a knobby tire ontop of it. Then a cross coming out of the inside of the tire. It puts us the tire standing firm on the rock of Jesus and the cross in the tire shows Jesus in our lives. Just my idea and where it comes from.

I also think our logo is very strong in what it represents.  maybe a refresh or recolor, but at the very least if we're going to spend the money I think we should come away with our original logo vectorized so we can use it to do shirts, banners, etc.

Ok, I showed those at our Christmas Gathering the draft I got from Emet Sales of a logo the designed.  Everyone agreed that we aren't there yet but I wanted to post it and let everyone else comment.

Here is also an idea I had

I really like the first one.  I would suggest that the Christian Crawlers be placed at the top of the logo and 4x4 Club at the bottom.  The large cross and the Jeep tire cut off a few off the letters in the current configuration.

I like the first one also with the name moved like previously said, also I don't know if this is of any importance but the more colors in the design the more expensive it will be for decals and T shirts, trust me I know, I do both

Randy,


You might post our current logo in this thread so that the newer members might realize what we have currently, and what has been proposed as a new one.

Correct, that would be an advantage of a redesigned logo, we don't have the vector file for our current logo, but if we decide to keep the current logo we could have it "vectorized".  I would like to have a logo that has color for the web and printed material but also looks good in black for our t-shirts.  I think our current logo does look good both ways. 

 

Here is another suggestion that was submitted:

I still like the orginal one the best.  All these are just to plain and simple.  Oh and David does good work he did all my Rock Solid Fab stickers.
