yEAH... the logo....that goes on the shirts....
To say that the beaver doesn't represent Oregonians is a farce. It is the official state animal. The fact that Oregon is beaver crazy with the pop-culture aspect is a throwback that we recognize the fact that the beaver is OUR state animal.
This animal was very instrumental in the discovery of this region. Lewis & Clark's expedition to the Oregon Territory documented many aspects of the region, including its wildlife.....
that and they found that beaver tasted like crap!
I don't have a problem with any of those other logo proposals. They are simple and unique. They don't have any trademark issues, as you pointed out and it is a happy medium for all parties involved. I would wear any one of those logos over the "It's Good" proposal any day of the week!
But like Matt pointed out, it isn't that these proposals have been swept under the rug, it's that we are just looking for more ideas to supplement them all.
Thank you.... I am a bit lagging today!
We've chosen number 1 as our logo through a vote at today's meeting.
Now that we have the logo decided on, it is time to discuss what color t-shirts we want. Do we want to do green shirts with white logo? This is the kind of thing that we need to iron out.
I will look into getting the shirts made, pricing and all that. But before I do, I WANT these issues resolved first, then I want a commitment of how many shirts to order and in what sizes.
Enough with this dragging of our feet on this thing. We've done enough of that. Let's get a consensus on this and get it done! This is for the OFF. Let's show some pride in ourselves and get this phase of finding our identity completed. Then we can move on to other things.
Well, we could either do a green shirt with a white state outline and green letters, or a white shirt with a green state outline and white letters. Personally, I'd rather have the green shirt.
I'd also rather have a green shirt with white logo (a good deep, rich, earthy green though, much like the logo is in the image) but Melanie and I think that a earthy brownish shirt with a green logo or the green with a brown logo would look cool, too. Would make it look more Oregony!
And you could probably sign us both up for one, so long as it's not just a plain white shirt with a logo and isn't too spendy, lol.
I was leaning toward the green, myself, too. It is my favorite color. But I do like brown, too.
Let's keep the ideas rolling in for a bit. I will put up a poll in a week or so and we will make a decision based on the poll.
Now that it's been brought up, brown sounds good (as long as its a softer brown). We don't want poop-colored shirts.
Dude... the Army Brown (aka poop brown) shirts would actually look good with a forest green color... or vice-versa.
Brown and Green does compliment each other really well.
Yeah, that does make sense.
But I am still open to color combos, though.....
I'll go with a brown shirt and green state outline with the white letters.
I really like the "Touchdown!" wookiee t-shirt. Too bad you guys don't seem to like it, though.
I was being serious.
No seriously, DeadorAlive... If you happen to have a bit of free time I highly encourage you to go back and read this whole thread. You will gain much entertainment.
Does anyone else have color combos for the shirts?
Yeah, I know.
I like the green state outline with the white font on a white shirt.
Hey Bill, I think it's time to put up the poll.
Alright... I will add it here, shortly.
Just an update here:
The art work has been approved. Since we didn't have the words Star Wars in the logo, it didn't need to be sent up to Sansweet. So we are cleared to use this logo on shirts, patches, literature, or whatever. The only thing that I was told that in out fliers, we do have to make sure that Star Wars is italicized and there is the disclaimer that it is the copywritten property of LFL.
So, there you go!
