    What do you think of our new logo?

    I feel it needs a little tweaking myself, so please provide honest feedback and suggestions so that we can get it just right.

    Thanks!

    It is kind of plain.

    Not exactly sure what it needs though.

    I also think that the image in the logo is too small. I think it would have been better if the logo encompasses the whole top area instead of just half of it.

    The stock photo provided by Cynthia is actually quite nice. Two people in business suits discussing something would be a good way to represent "business" and "forum".

    I see the logo of Newspaper, It would be better if it had word "Business" inside it. However the logo can be image of group of people dicussing something i.e. Business issues. The logo needs little work to be done.

    Maybe have the whole top, the logo. You could do it with the two people talking, then a bold text with a design inside the text. Like a swoosh. :)

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. I might launch a logo competition at some stage in the future and will use your feedback for that.

    Any further feedback would be most welcome.

    I guess it will do for the current being before you update the whole forum design.

    I think you need an accent color in it too, Fergal. A touch of orange or lime would be good to make it pop.

    The newspaper icon's too far away from the text I think. There's lots of free icons you can get as long as you don't distribute or sell them as a package of your own. I think your icon needs to focus more on the advice/discussion part rather than a newsy related icon. The text is fine, I'd just change the icon.

    This icon site I got the ones below from has the added advantage that you have a matching favicon available too for download - the .ico file's all done for you, so it's easy to add one to match your header. Each download comes in a variety of sizes. You do need to check the licenses on an individual basis but most are simply "don't pinch my stuff and sell it yourself or claim you made it".

    Something like these may work:

    (cont'd in next post as only allows 4 images max.)

    That's just a few ideas. There's plenty more there to browse through at the site and millions of other places to get them. Hope that helps. :)

    If you find one I'll change the banner for you if you want. Just send me the header pic and the icon or icon link, no problem.

    I think that there's a problem on the link on the new logo. When I click that link, it suddenly shows that I'm not logged in. The link is pointing to http://businessadviceforum.com/.

    Nazreen, thanks for letting me know. I've changed the logo, so that it now links to our home page at index.php. Please let me know if that's OK now.

    It's a good one Webestrian, I like it a lot. Icons are my new obsession LOL, so if you have any freebie sites up your sleeve, spill the beans. Don't make me hold you by the ankles and shake them out of you. :D I'm sure Fergal would find them useful too. Glad you found it helpful. :)
