    Default Yet another Logo thread.....

    These are the B/W and color versions of a work in progress...I am not sure about the NP gradient and also about what i should have for the background.

    C&C welcome and much encouraged...not that I thought it needed saying...

    Oh and done in Inkscape atm.....thinking of importing it to gimp later for "purdyfying"

    ****Edit****
    okay...why no thumbnail and only links.....????

    The thumbnailer breaks easily so I just resave the document and then reupload it. Some folks say that they have tried it up to six times with no success but I've never gotten past three. It may also be the reason that the challenge thumb compiler is broken, too. I don't have Inkscape and can't use Illustrator to save my life so I can't comment on your logo, sorry.

    yeah...been hearing about the thumb prob....anyhoot, I managed to save them as PDFs that do create thumbnails....just not sure why it made the BW version with a black background.....the actual PDF is correct though.

    Rather than a straight horizontal gradient you might try something on an angle. Might beef up the black stroke as well - lends a bit of weight to the whole thing and makes it feel more solid, stable. The words North's Point almost screams for something of an arrow pointing up, too. Maybe the top of the N on the left or where it joins the P. Don't think you need a background because backgrounds are always tricky trying to match them to images where they clash, say like the black background on a parchment map...doesn't quite work. My two cents, shrug. It may be just how you want it and if so, disregard what I've said. Cheers, man.

    okay, I tweeked the gradient and I was also wondering about putting a point on it somewhere. So here is another version that I think is a bit better....

    I want the NPG initials there, and the gradients are there to represent Mountains to forest and shallow to deep water. Don't worry, I am not married to anything else as of yet.
