I really love the new logo and expecially the apron idea and it is time for a change. Great idea.

Merry Christmas everyone. The new logo looks great. Just an idea for the online store is magnets with the logo, to go along with the aprons and coffee cups. Like I said, just a thought. Good job to everyone.

The design of the logo....as you say "needs tweaking". Main ideas are excellent. Comments: The typeface perhaps the same family. The font in different sizes. And the tag: Discover Cooking Discuss Life..perfect. Perhaps upper and lower case. Tweak the "fit" when the site is opened the complete masthead is not visible. Perhaps reduce the type point size. Most everyone has a style. Comments just offered as observation from a DC member with 26 years of teaching in Department of Art at college level.

Folks please take a step back. The color change was not intentional and was not meant as a slap to anyone. Andy added some graphics to the logo for the holiday season. It was meant to bring holiday cheer, not negative feelings. When he added the graphics an older revision of the logo must have been pulled by accident. When he takes the graphics down I am sure you will see the original logo. This really does not need to be a big deal.

I catch your drift alright!I know the feeling! changes in the skin and hair and eye colours just the way our original logo (like on my mug that I am so proud of and use every morning for my cuppa)made me wonder.The christmassy bits are great though.

I think the site administrators are still testing things out. Just give them time for the final product. Nothing is official yet!

#1 - the logo was decided on awhile ago and we have been using it
#2 - This logo was drug out of the closet ONLY to decorate for Christmas
#3 - Christmas decorations in MOST homes stay up until January 1st
#4 - Did anyone read GB's post above?
#5 - repeat steps 1-4

Guilty as charged Kitchenelf! Sorry, should have read GB's post! Now I see what's happening. Thanks, and BTw, liked the step by step info on the logo, it's so precise!

I really like the new logo. I've never seen your old logo, so I can't compare though. The new one looks very professional. Nice blend of cartoon with professional cooking.

I don't think I'm represented... :(

Well it would certainly be impossible to represent every single type of person here Sean and that was not our intent, otherwise the logo would have to be thousands of people and obviously that would not work. I am fairly confident that there are some (at least one) aspects of the logo that fit you though.
