First show and tell
So after 4 days in Gimp, cussing kicking and screaming. I have a logo I whipped up for the hell of it to show off. Nothing special, just something I decided to do for practice.

The firstlogo one is mine, the other one is my reason for doing it.. since it is the one this group is using right now and it hurts me to look at.

RE: First show and tell
Agreed on both counts ofnuts.. Its not perfect, but I did use quite a few tools and what not and it only took.. umm.. maybe an hour from start to finish? So for firing up Gimp just a few days ago.. not too bad I would hope Smile I guess it deserves a C, maybe a C-.

Just for my info.. when you say blocky, you mean its just plain flat text on the page right? Not that Ive exported it wrong or something.. ya?

Your logo on the top is easier to look at/read.
My suggestion for the catchphrase:

"networking starts online and opens in person"
"networking begins online and grows in person"

Personally I like the grows in person version.. nice call. Unfortunately, its not my rabbit.. so it will probably stay as is... foolish mortals.. lol..

This was really a quick practice session on a relatively easy logo upgrade..not for profit, but just something to do. I did learn about text chunkys.. so its been worth the couple hours I threw into it.

Outline the "VIBRANT" in black to separate it from the white background more.

I like this idea.. at this point, what would you go about doing this without just drawing it all the way around the letters?
