Logo history

We didn't note original logo font at time of use. It is lost in the mists of memories, past member's minds and time.

The logo design does not reverse easily into a white on dark color presentation. The font is also not easily read when the logo is small. This is a design failing - will have to be addressed in a next iteration.

Do not display the logo over patterned or coloured backgrounds. As much as possible, keep it on white or light-colored backgrounds.

Under the hood

For SEO:

Branding tasks

Photo library

  • Build a photo and image library
    • Gather, collate, edit and label digital photos into a digital photo library for use with RMM materials.
    • tag with image size, appropriate use, dates, people (as much as possible) activity type.
    • Determine repository location (currently, mostly within the wiki photo library)

Design next iteration of logo, branding, colors and themes

  • This is a significant task -- not to be started until web site framework rework is complete.
  • Requirements: logo and any supporting graphics need to work as one color designs, both black on white and reversed out (printed in white or black on coloured t-shirts and promotional material)
  • Logo needs to be modular, so that mark and type can work in horizontal, compact and vertiical applications
  • Logo should be usable in both 3D printing, CNC cutting, digital graphics and illuminated installations.
  • Fun, playful, inviting and intelligent.
  • Have a sense of humor.
