    New Logo

    The new logo looks great, but... I would shrink it down a little. Takes up a lot of real estate at the top of the screen--and I run at pretty high resolution. Maybe its no more than the old logo but for whatever reason its more noticeable, I think because of all the whitespace next to it.

    Matt, it's the same size as the previous one, but I do intend to take care of the extra whitespace. Out of curiosity, which color theme are you using? I'm using "woody" and the white is not too noticeable. I do see in the default blue theme that the white box is more noticeable.

    I use Woody and I almost didn't notice there was white space. ;-)

    I guess before we did that, one of us Admins would have to figure out how to actually add something to the header.

    Then once we have that handled, I'm thinkin' Viagra ads.

    I am using woody. The whitespace is a little less noticable on this monitor than my shop's PC where I first noticed it. This one tends to run some colors together.

    I agree with the comment in the original post: looks great but 'looks' big: even if it is the same size as before. I think it's because the former logo was more subdues, whereas this on is bold and bright.

    My suggestions, which you should take with a pinch of salt, or simply ignore , would be to shrink and move the yellow text at the bottom up under the main Woodworking text, and reduce the size of the red capsule in the y axis.

    Vaughn - congrats for winning BTW!

    Larry, are you using a different computer? I had to do a shift-F5 to get the new logo on this computer. It was still using the old logo out of the cache.

    Gari, I'll see if I can get some time to play around with your suggestions. Might be something workable. (I'm using a cheap software program called Logo Design Studio, and some of the capabilities are pretty limited. I'll have to see if I can stretch or shrink the oval on a single axis.)

    Let me know if you need help, have a copy of photoshop, can take a look if you'd like.
