    DevShed Logo Redesign and slogan help


    So we have a new proposed logo and slogan for the Developer Shed corporate side and are looking for suggestions for the DevShed forums. The logo would be used on all forum, website and other materials - including shirts.

    The idea is that the forum logo would have the swoosh from the Developer Shed logo, but its own icon inside the swoosh, followed by the name and the phrase "A Developer Shed site" underneath.

    If you have other ideas for the Developer Shed logo, please let me know. BUT - what I'm really looking for are ideas for the DevShed logo and a tagline, and we'd love your input! We can stick with the current hash symbol, or do something else - but it needs to fit inside the swoosh.

    Here is the Developer Shed logo (and the new Developer Shed slogan is "Tools, Talk and Tech"):



    Thanks for your input!

    Hash symbol?? I always thought it was a wooden handscrew clamp, which sorta goes with the tool and workshed theme

    It was originally two wood clamps, but then morphed into the bitmapped look that it is now.

    What about making the title up out of programming symbols $ for S, # for h, 3 for e, etc?

    $#3d for Shed, might work if properly stylised

    Are you planning on sticking with the same (or similar) color palette? Or are you thinking of changing that up to a more black/gray/white motif? Or had you even really thought of it yet?

    Edit: So are you getting rid of the vagina then?
