Styles change, things evolve. We're working really hard to bring EB up-to-date and along with all the improvements and fixes we have planned for the site we also need to refresh things a little.

We're not planning anything shocking but we do want to spruce the place up. Once we get the forum software upgraded to the latest version it'll be functional on most devices which is going to be great. Hopefully we can keep the cosy familiarity of the existing style.

If anyone here fancies taking a go at updating the logo we'd love to see your ideas. We want it to keep the existing EB logo that sunsetbrew created but with a more modern style. Simple but elegant, etc. You know what we need!

Anyone fancying a go get in touch or post your ideas here for the peanut gallery to rip to shreds. Have at it!

Xander's ears be burning.
Wanda: I can't stand people. I hate them. Do you hate them?
Henry: No, but I seem to feel better when they're not around.

Made a quick 5 minute version as a nod to the old...not much thought into it.

Here's a more imaginative one. Tried to keep it simple and clean. Classic colors. Poster tube and coffee imagery.

11 years and thousands of hours logged on the site and I did not realize until just now that the letters 'EB' are part of the original logo

Imo the current EB logotype is already a good design and kind of doubles as an infinity symbol. I doubt if it can be improved upon...meaning if it's not broke don't fix it :wink:

It's cool for a forum. For t-shirts, stickers etc...not so much. Kinda' boring for that sort of thing. JMO.

I dig this...feel like it would match well with the new forum layout while staying true to the OG design idea.
