    This is a thread for discussion how we can create a FanForce brand, so that we have something that tells everyone "This is FanForce".

    As I see it the first step of this is to create a logo. Now I have absolutely no experience or ability to make a logo or work with images. So first of all we need to find talented people out there that are willing to help us. Do you know of anyone, or is it something you could do yourself? Speak up in this thread.

    When we have a logo it's time to think about PR material and how we can reach out as a club.

    What kind of logo?
    Possible a contest for anyone who wants to do that?

    If you do a contest, consider giving the winner colors - maybe for a week?

    Sounds good. :)
    Also please let me know about help. I have Maya in my computer.
    But looks good to let others to participate.

    It is for the visual branding of FanForce.

    I am putting my hand up and saying that I will be working on one.

    As for branding I also think we need a motto/slogan to use. We have had "no matter where your allegiances may lie, you are always a fan first", but that's too long and unwieldy. Something to think about.

    FanForce: We have cookies AND milk
    FanForce: All you need to join is you
    FanForce: Unlimited fun
    FanForce: No costume? No problem!

    (I don't know... LOL)
    I asked our group to see what they can come up with as well.

    Once I brought this up in our group, our PR guy (Rickie Blevins) came up with this as something to consider.[​IMG]

    Here's another one he did (and the motto can be changed to whatever if need be):

    Thank you for sharing those Vesper. Got me thinking of Yoda and some of his philosophies.

    FanForce: Luminous Beings are we.

    I like "binding the fandom together".

    Calling gra-co_o_hun! Interested in making a FanForce logo?

    And if we need an audio tagline, we should see if James Earl Jones can say "This...is FanForce." Or could we take the old CNN audio and splice that together with some other audio somewhere? Get on it internets!

    Nice work Orwick! What about splitting the rebel and imperial logos and using that for the O in Force? May run into trademark issues there though...

    As far as a tagline, how about - "Be the Force"?
