LiveATC Logo
« on: September 20, 2007, 10:03:57 PM »
Thought I'd take a crack at doing a new logo for LiveATC incorporating the tagline used in the ad banners. It's still a work-in-progress, but I figured I'd post it to get some preliminary feedback.

Comments/criticism appreciated!

Not bad - although I think it would be better if there would be "liveatc.net" instead of just "liveatc."

1st revision based on cactushp's feedback:



CHANGES:
  • Re-styled tower cab. I think this one's more print-friendly and fits better.
  • Added the ".net".
  • Weight of red "ATC" lettering reduced to match the rest of the text.

I think the tower cab above the letter I could be just a bit more authentic.  To me the one you have looks like older Chinese  architecture.  Recall that a tower cab typically has very high windows, as seen below, not multiple stories with low windows:



Good start, however.

I like it - been trying to come up with a design for some time...but other priorities constantly take me away from that.  And I'm no artist.  :-)

I like the red. It makes the logo stand out - which is never a bad thing :-)

Just think, Dave:  Logo-inscribed tee-shirts, baseball caps, mouse pads, coffee mugs, bumper stickers, etc!  The money is in the merchandise, as Walt Disney so perfectly demonstrated.

Right...CafePress.com has made a nice business out of this.

I'll contact the banner creator offline.  Thanks for all the feedback.

In taking a second look at the now authentic tower on top of the "I," could it be a little bigger?

I'm still playing with (and incessantly tweaking) the tower. Also, I'm in the process of implementing a few elements that Dave asked me to look into off-board. I'll hopefully have more to show later tonight.

Can't reveal too much right now, but I think you'll all like what you see :)

OK. After consulting a bit with Dave, here's what we've got right now:



Changes:
  • Tower cab enlarged a bit and whitespace between it and the base of the "i" increased.
  • Radio waves re-added, but with a (IMO) much better location and angle. Thanks to Dave for suggesting this one.
  • Kerning between lettering tweaked just a hair, and tagline moved up a touch as well for balance.

Heck, that would motivate me enough to order something from CafePress.  Althought the current logo style would work great as an embroidered logo instead of the screen that CP does.

Edit: I mean just the URL and not the tag as embroidered.

Looking great. 

Something else to ponder (directed at the group):  In regards to the first part of the slogan below the link that reads "Live traffic..."  Might that be confusing to the non-flying masses?  Would it be more meaningful if it read, "Live Air Traffic?"

I think I'll go ahead and second Peter.

Nice job there with the logo's.

Are new towers that are being built like the one CactusHP has in his icon?

Dhruv-

Can you contact me via email?  I have been trying to reach you (unsuccessfully) - hoping you see this posting.

Thanks,
