I think it would be nice to have some type of logo for the site. Perhaps have a contest to select one that most everyone agrees upon. Something that could eventually be incorporated into business cards and stationery and such that signifies ATP with a glance?
Right now I think that the ATP header is kind of bland and perhaps some logo would spice it up?

The blue graphic on the top-left side of the page serves as a logo.

I admit that I'm not much of an artist, though, but I would be pleased if any artists wanted to take a stab at it. I can't guarantee that I will use any logos that are offered, but I'm willing to consider the ideas!

Oops, I missed seeing the little i dotted with the posey. You've done great Dave, but you know me and my wacky ideas. I'll put on my thinking cap. Perhaps something flowery or planty with the letters ATP?

I killed some time today so... Smiling

Why not make a banner like this where you can switch out pictures without the letters being in the way? You could put your squirrel sunflower seeds thief or other cute pictures in there. That might be interesting?

I think the logo looks great as it is. Dave's style is crisp and clean. And it will look good in any size, on a business card or a t-shirt.
And it is neither Masculine or feminine so it is appropriate for all. The most I would do is add a single little butterfly, bird or bee to take it one step closer to the out of doors.

Maybe a butterfly could replace the flower above the letter "i"?

I think that adding both a bigger flower and a garden friendly creature would give it the "life
" it needs without getting too busy and cluttered looking.

A butterfly landing on the flower would be cute but how would it fit? Make it smaller or leaner? I couldn`t really copy the way the letters are done but the concept is clear to stretch it out for the header. I still think the top looks empty every time I log in...it needs designs or something. Just my honest and friendly consumer opinion. Smiling

I like those ideas of adding something floral, perhaps change from flower to bird to bee, etc.
Meantime I came up with this abbreviated logo for ATP. Not sure if it could be used, but was fun to make.

Will we get new bumper stickers? The Cubit one is faded and beat up from me backing into cars that try to cut in front of me.

Wow, I didn't know cubits had bumper stickers, I sure missed that. But those blocks on the cubit before the Title is just the right logo for that site and I was just thinking that something like that for ATP would be good. You knew immediately when you saw those cubes that the site is Cubits.
