    Josh I wouldn't change a thing: the current logo is perfect. Whoever's responsible for it if the designer wanted to tweak / update that would be fine but isn't the current logo something that came by way of House?

    No self-respecting designer can afford to do contests or spec work for they give the impression that graphic design doesn't have much worth.

    For students and wee professionals contests are a way to gain exposure and grow their portfolio but the process contradicts the forum where we celebrate builders for their talent and craft.

    So I'd love to see a new logo do the same and end up in the hands of a designer like Geoff Mcfetridge for example, but again I think the VSalon logo is a homerun.

    Well, velocipedesalon is not a business per se. There are hobbyist frame builders too. I don't think it reduces the value of a trade frambuilder's work. Why wouldn't there be a place for hobbyist graphic designers ? I've designed several logos / graphics for small non profit org (user groups / local teams) that couldn't afford buying one. I don't enter contests from brands/company/org that could afford the real deal and I don't think it woul occur to them to contact me in the first place.

    I'm looking forward to a refresh.

    Different bugs for different mugs perhaps.

    Awesome start to this and a conversation.
    Be at peace homies, the earwig is not going away forever. The House designed logo will be around bugging us in clever ways.
    That was clever Brian and I See what you did there Ant.

    However, a splash screen and a logo are two different ideas. I was thinking of a parody of the School of Athens by Raphael for the splash screen and a logo for the banner.

    I like where you are headed with this.

    Make "Men" something more gender neutral and I think you have a hit.

    I've got the vector file somewhere where I added (and women) when I had this as a Facebook group back in 09. Had many members but I killed it thinking no way this social media thing would last. I'll dig for it.
