Thinking of doing a minor redesign on the site and updating the logo. Thought I'd run a poll to see which people preferred.

Either my original

or Gil's MBA inspired logo

in a colour to match obviously.


Planning on dropping the .co.uk references since a lot of people seem to think this is a UK only rather than just UK based site...

Nowt wrong with the original, it's simple and it gets the job done. The one you're considering is more dynamic. :wink: I like it. :)

All good things evolve...go with the new look :D

John, wanna send out a big Thanks for the work on the site. Pretty damn cool to have a place to hang with other dirtheads who appreciate the art of the early rides.

I like the blue on brown MBA style -although its not so immediately legible.

How about using the FAT Chance 'font' ? :)

Will re do (or get Gil to re do) the logo in the existing site colours.

I've not got the FAT font. Does such a thing exist ??

Gil has done a good job on the new logo - I like it!
One niggle though: the 2nd "r" in retro needs tweaking, or is it just me?
(I used to work in the sign industry so I'm a fussy git, sorry!)
