looks good whipy.
Sergey would be cool if you can send the final logo to whipy.

@Whipy:
could you make this transition from "blue to black" a bit smoother?

If the banner is "ready to go" I will rework the syle of the forum a bit.

But semantically, if we want a banner for the coming European tour, this one doesn't really fit - this would fit in 2008 after the tragedy. So LeRoi on the Banner is good, but don't forget the rest of the band and that they are coming to Europe. I don't think that the band would be really happy if the fans concentrate on celebrating the memory of LeRoi all the time. It's a loss for everyone, but we/they have to move on.

My first impression also was: stop with that Leroi business! The attempt is a fine and honourable one, but in my opinion we should either have only Dave in it, the whole band (with or without the new members) or we don't use any photo at all, maybe just a drawing.

Here's an idea, though only a sketch.

- Own photo
- Only Dave
- Usage of our semi-official logo (Sergey's)
- Usage of current board coulour
- One font -- different coulours

I'm not the greatest designer, but I like the logo. And I think if we have a logo we should put it in the foreground, shouldn't we?

I like whipy's version a lot cause
1. there's not too much in it
2. you can clearly see the logo (the "distinctive mark", you know what I mean? don't know if it's the exact right word in english)

Of course I would say we should put a nice picture of dave and perhaps one or two other band members in there instead of that picture of Leroi. Cause of several reasons noticed from other members.

Like I said, not the greatest designer. Haven't changed much on whipys and follows mostly the rules of European Ant:

Perhaps like this?

very nice but I just can't get used to the monkey design, no offence to the one who did it, but I find it a lil' childish, you know. He just don't look "serious" to my eyes. Maybe if keeping the circle with another monkey inside ?
don't know, just my opinion...
..but I like the banner idea a lot ! clear, simple. I liked the one with all the members on it.

It definitely should not look very serious in my opinion. And I had this in mind, when working on it, because we are not a corporation or a firm, but a small community of nice and happy DMB fans. I even think it should look a little bit more childish than now. Not like the AntsMarching logo - it's interesting, but too alien - it doesn't fit the idea conceptually.
Of course if there is someone, who has an idea for a better logo - just post it. I told many times I won't be offended and am open for everything, as long as it is good
P.S. I think the monkey logo may need some redesign, but I'm not sure that I'll have the time right now.

What do you think of this monkey face for a logo? I haven't made it on my own but have found it when I was searching via google.

It's nice, but normally you can not use something that you found in Google - it might be copyrighted
