RE: [RLC-Action] New poll for RLC-Action
- I would point out that my Liberty Bell logo also looks good in grayscale; it
was designed to do so.

I agree with your one- or two-color printing concept, and I think
Westmiller's Elephant Torch looks good in gray tones, but I can't seem to
find your "late" entry. What link do I need to use to get there?

Mine is the one labeled 'late", but I guess that's because I modified a logo
that wasn't previously blessed by the NatComm. If you haven't seen it,
check it out. I filled the blank space in Dave Briggman's logo with a blue
"blanket" and white stars. My thought was that it would look fine with
either 2 color or 4 color processes. Which is a consideration as you might
also consider what a logo would look like when reduced to 1 color.
Requiring 4 colors all the time might not be practical.

The original call for a logo was for a graphic design without any words
incorporated into it. I'm guessing that the idea was to get a logo that
stood alone, and any words would be added as needed, depending upon the
application (although that was never explained in so many words). Several
designs were submitted with words, several without. In this regard, all
designs should be considered for their merit without the words.
And, just to play Devil's Advocate here for a moment, what I don't quite
find attractive about the Elephant Flag is that the single star in the
middle of its forehead makes it look like a circus elephant, which might
prompt critics of the RLC to make statements like, "There's that RLC circus
elephant; there must be some RLC clowns around here somewhere." Even the
"RLC" could be abused by someone turning the "C" into "Clowns." The star
also looks like a bull's eye. Elephants are hard to bring down, but didn't

I believe in "negative analysis." You can look at something and find a lot
of things you like about it, and you can look at something to find what you
don't like about it. If the negatives outweigh the positives, the decision
is greatly simplified.

Everyone, let me argue for the Elephant Flag logo. The reason I
like it is that it has our entire name spelled out---Republican Liberty
Caucus---AND it's got our web site of www.rlc.org on it. Plus it
incorporates elements of the American flag and the GOP Elephant. An extra
benefit, to my mind, is that the elephant looks like an enraged rat...but
that just might only be me.

I don't really know anything about this group (though I've heard of them before), so it would probably be a good idea to do a little background research on them before relying on their information. Still, the Pig Book and CAGW's other resources look like good places to start.
