Posted:Hi all,

As of today we have introduced our new logo in a black color to the current website (top left corner).

Our New Website is still a few months away from being completed.

However all our cards and invoices do contain the new logo. So to remove any confusion and also create confusion we decided to start you getting used to the shape of the new logo.

So yeah, there it is smile

i think i liked the old one more, but i can see that the change is slick and definitely more practical.

Exactly... which would suit something as serious as "Crawshay's of Christchurch" grin but I can't quite associate it with how fun I know "Home of Poi" to be.

I can see why it's more practical and I won't rule out it growing on me, but right now I hate it frown

What sort of move do you call that shape anyway? tongue2

Posted:Miss the Colour? We had to remove the colour as it clashed with the current site too much. I am colour blind and it was really bad for my eyes with a light blue background.
The letters and swirl are white and orange on the dev site.

New site has a different board/forums we are currently testing importing all users and posts into the system. We still have a fair way to go.

We've been working on the dev site for almost a year.
It will be a change for many and it will help the site grow in a more structured platform.

Makes me feel like I should talk more like a proper grown up. It's very nice, it's just serious, which is not something I really associate with poi..

that being said - us on the forum are notoriously resistant to change, but then we forget what the old version looked like after a couple of months...

i agree.

are all boarders going to be yellow? what colour will text be? i'm not a fan of yellow on white, i find it hard to see.

didnt you update the board recently? seems like a big waste now tongue2

Posted:I think I would prefer it if you shifted the emphasis from the text to the logo; the text is a bit characterless (pun intended) but the logo is pretty nice (albeit not directly representative of any of the multitude of poi geometric shapes that are now so popular but I guess you don't want to be Playpoi right?).

If the logo was 2-3 times the size and the HOP text proportionately smaller I think it would be much sexier and a whole lot more interesting smile

also the white orange white text is growing on me smile

Posted:Personally, I'm not keen on serif fonts on a screen, also the new colour scheme seems a bit off to me - maybe have it reflecting the colour of the green/red flames?

However, it's hard to comment until you see the full picture - when you take something out of context it's harder to understand it.

But agree with Chutters - logo encircling title for teh win! smile


good luck with the the changeover!
