I wouldn't use it as an "official" WGA logo, but if you want to scrutinize it, here it is in a few sizes:

Small:

Medium:

Large:

I like it a lot... could this be the new WGA logo we've been talking about for some time? Smile It would take a Board vote to change the current logo to this one... so for now this logo will only be available from Dave's site.

The only issue I have with it is the readability of the "Wisconsin Geocaching Association" text at the medium size and smaller. Maybe with a different, less bold and condensed font (or somehow splitting the text onto multiple lines) we could make it more clear at a small size that would be suitable for the upper left of the website.

And I'm not sure if it would look better or worse with a connecting green line at the top of the big 'G'... I would want to see it both ways.

Vector not rastor.


That will clear up the logo as it is resized.

I concur. This is only a suggestion on my part. Others may come up with something better. Anyway, it's not official, so don't use this!

That's partly because I just resized the image instead of redoing the text in a smaller font. I agree though, it's hard to read at a smaller size. That's why I left it off the "small" version altogether.

I did it that way on purpose. The "G" is meant to be transparent so if you put it on a t-shirt or something, the "G" would become the color of the shirt:

Here it is with a line on the top and bottom:

It was vector when I resized it. The Impact font just doesn't look very good at small sizes.

I really like Dave's logo, it is very nice looking and not too "busy."

Maybe you could have a competition to have members come up with logo designs and submit them to the eboard, giving you many options to choose from. You could maybe give a free t shirt with the new logo on it to the winner or something like that.

OK, now thats too busy! Ilike the logo Dave. I agree on leaving the "line" off the top of the "G" too. If you put that line in , the "G" will be smaller than the "W" and "A" and look funny. Great logo, but wheres the fire?
