There will be an HR application form in your inbox very soon Rooies :twisted:

The second leg of the logo was started by a suggestion received by the VHRs for mirror socks, and we would like to add a logo. We also do have BB who produces the caps, beanies and scarves for the Stiffnecks; and we have other ideas for merchandise too ... so are a little way with the process :D


Looks like the beginnings of an online store... :)

Congratulations to all who participated in the various phases of the logo project.

From the proposal phase to the application phase then the application phase next the execution phase followed by the voting phase after which came the decision and finally the announcement.

Three more phases to come: what will be produced, who will produce it and how is it going to be marketed.

Forumites own identity.

Must say I'm a bit disappointed in the final design. It wasn't one of my favourites (nor even on my list of "acceptable's" to tell the truth), and when it comes to branded gear, I'll be sticking with my "Stiffnecks" beanie :lol: , but I guess taste differs...

Nevertheless, congratulations on the winning design.

Last thing: I do hope the design will still undergo some technical editing before going "into service" so to speak.

For example, it should be "www.sanparks.org Forums" or "www.SANParks.org Forums" and not "www.Sanparks.org Forums" (note the inappropriate capitilisation of the acronym "SANParks". And the abbreviation of "established" is est. or Est. (but not EST and no full stop). Just mentioning it.

Like DC may I point out that an elephant's tusk does not grow straight down and then make a 90 degree turn but flows in an uninterrupted slight curve.

Uhuh. :lol: It definitely needs a serious proofreading/editing before it can be used as is.

THANK YOU LEOPARD PAWS for a great logo and WELL DONE to all involved in the process

Will we be able to down load a copy in say jpeg format for use on our emails and websites?
If so any idea when it will be available for use, bearing in mind the warning about copyright and ownership?

Mirror socks are a great idea. Maybe forumites will use them and they can replace the yellow ribbon which doesn't seem to be used these days. Last 2 trips to Kruger and recent trip to Kgalagadi revealed only 1 yellow ribbon, ours. Or is this becoming a clicky thing?

Whilst not being a great contributor to the forum i get many hours of pleasure browsing its pages. Helps dull the pain of not being able to be in my favourite place. Thanks to all for their postings.

We will get back to you on this in the new year once everyone is back at office. I do think we are going to guard the logo very jealously and ask that it only be used on the forums, sanctioned forum events and on approved merchandise sold via the VHRs.

Firstly congratulations leopard paws.. :thumbs_up:

again like Dabchick says it wouldnt be my choice.

I am glad Dabchick brought up some of the questions/errors I had seen in the design as I didnt want to sound negative but I am pleased it hasnt got a yellow ribbon on it though as I feel that would have been a step backward.

Will a designer now adapt it onto a more proffessional logo?

Hi.

I Love this new LOGO, but yes, I do agree with the Mirror Sock idea.

Will it be possible to buy a personalised Photo of the Logo and underneath with our Forum name which we can stick on the side mirror similar to a mirror sock.

Just Curious

Just happy that we finally have a logo - and we'll be able to show it off with pride on future trips. Thanks to all involved in the process of getting the logo, and to all who will be in the process of printing it on various merchandise. Looking forward to buy some of it... :tongue:
