@jr0cket I don't feel very nationalistic atm so can we stay away from the Union Flag theme...also this is an ldnclj logo and London is not the UK. Perhaps something with a more London based theme?
The LSUG logo hinted at the London Underground and I sympathized with that 🙂
TfL get really arsey about underground style logos, but we're probably small enough they won't notice
+1 Big Ben. Instantly recognisable.
-1 union flag
+1 Westminster Clock Tower - being pedantic (and I am) Big Ben is the bell and most ppl wouldn't recognise that! Another thought is Tower Bridge in sillouette behind Clojure logo or perhaps a sillouette of the cityscape?
agile_geek I think you mean the Elizabeth Tower http://www.parliament.uk/about/living-heritage/building/palace/big-ben/facts-figures/clock-tower-facts/
@agile_geek yeah Big Ben (the bell) vs the clock tower is a continual source of irritation for my pedantic mind also 🙂 I should find more important things to annoy me
davesnowdon I'm finding it a relaxing thing to be annoyed about. The other things I'm annoyed about feel really, really bad atm
@otfrom yeah, I know what you mean
I’m currently transitioning from a prescriptive to a descriptive view of language. If people call the tower ‘Big Ben’, then the tower is called ‘Big Ben’ (by those people).
oh, pedantry is great fun - but if it starts annoying people (or yourself) then maybe its time to dial it back a bit
I would never argue against correctness
I’ve seen some people get extremely angry on the internet due to language prescriptivism
heh, I actually had someone continue the “discussion" in private chat, yelling at me
it's morally acceptable to troll language prescriptivists isn't it ?
and he said “erm no, it’s actually called a field”. And I linked to the spec, which shows it’s called a property.
agile_geek anyway, I don't think you are a pedant as you are capable of imagination. You are just interested in precision and accuracy. 😉
otfrom: that's very.....exact of you 😉
otfrom: yeah, you're very 'try'ing
The rough idea behind the design is that the outer blue circle represents the M25 surrounding a green and vibrant Greater London. The lambda representing the major arteries (roads) through London. Alternatively, its a stylised clock-face representing the clock that surrounds Big Ben. Or its just something I knocked together whist I've had flu and got lucky with... (I wont show you any of the other dodgy designs I created)
looks neat, would replacing the green bit with a stereotypical london photo be a bit too gimmicky?
open to suggestions for a sterotypical london photo... I guess a skyline of the city or westminster is fairly stereotypical... A picture in the green background would need to scale well...
I did think of doing a black cab with the Clojure logo on it...
but thats tricky to avoid making it look like a logo for a cab company 🙂
I don’t think this is licensed for use, but something like this perhaps? http://www.universal-tourguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/discoverlondon.jpg
needs to be significantly simpler for a logo... could maybe do a banner at a pinch. Need something more like http://www.clker.com/cliparts/9/6/4/f/13820102041341667680London%20Skyline.svg.hi.png
but that works much better for a banner than a logo... We could have the outer ring of the logo as the London eye...
@jr0cket I quite like the blue/green logo but the M25, green and verdant Greater London explanation is a stretch 😉 Could we put the logo floating above the London skyline sillouette or do you think that's too complicated?
u could put the lambda in the london eye
