Keep in mind, any images posted in this topic are purely conceptual and subject to change.

I have been toying with the idea of a newer, cleaner logo. This is stage one of my mock-up. Thoughts? Suggestions?



(Here's helvetica font)

It becomes way too crowded if I add that text in, in my opinion. Don't get stuck on the current logo. I'm going for simplicity here.

"Team members" is just as ambiguous as anything else without explicitly putting "TARGET" somewhere in it. Furthermore, Google and other search engines don't (can't) index the text of the image, so what the image says is irrelevant. I don't think there will be any confusion, as someone else said, there's plenty of bullseyes to make it obvious enough who the forum's for.

Also, I don't know if is a suggestion to use Helvetica or a play on "Hell yeah" haha. But I tried using Helvetica and thought it looked pretty bad, tbh. I edited a helvetica version into the OP.

**IMO***I'm not a huge fan of the word "vent", because it makes it sounds like a place to come and whine. The forum is much more useful and fun as learning forum, not a whiney-baby forum. **IMO**

I really like it. Although I do agree that we need the "Made by Team Members, for Team Members" (That was what originally made me come here years ago)
I personally am down for a change.
Maybe we can think of a new saying.

I would think of something but I don't have an ounce of creativity in my blood.

"Target Team Member Eyes Only"
Yeah, I'll stop.

And I like the word VENT but I do understand how it can portray us. But... we all do have anger problems... Well when it comes to Spot

More like "comiserate", to share common experiences.
Actually, I'd go with the other word you said. "Share" seems like the perfect phrase to use. Even when people vent here, it's more in the form of sharing some bad experience they had. And the point of the site is really to share both experiences and knowledge about the company.

I stand by my first and only banner, By Team Members, For Team Members. It has a meaning behind it and I think those who are searching for a place like this will find it with or without an banner. I do believe that it sets us apart from anything corporate made since this is a place built by just us Team Members!

I do like the suggestions, I just feel that the old slogan should still be used in one way or another.. Keep the suggestions comin though!

The only suggestion I would have is to maybe make it a little bigger and maybe the "By Team Members, For Team Members" a little darker shade of red. I can barely make it out but then I have older eyes than a lot of you Youngin' %^D.

Don't feel bad, I've got the same issue.

I suspect there are more of us oldies here than you might suspect. I don't mean with our employment with Target, but our age. Oh no, am I admitting I'm old on a pubic forum??? :\
