I like the moth, it is directly associated with silence. Maybe if it was colored differently?

How about a "hush" image like this one?

Image

Hm, a "hush" person plus a sleeping rabbit plus a computer. This will be a very complex logo... It might look great as background image or screen saver.

silvervarg -- that photo is special! Her expression & pose suggest enticement, mystery, playfulness, affection, intimate sharing... in short, all the promises a man needs to feel desire. It's an image of the ultimate siren. 8)

If she's someone you know, well you're a lucky guy; if not, we can both fantasize; if she's your sister, um... has she ever been to Canada? :lol: :lol:

BACK on TOPIC: Haven't had any time to consider a "badge" style SPCR logo; will have to give it some thought.

It was VIA, not Vantec, that had the Silence of the Fans campaign for their "Eden" platform.

Well if you want to go out and have some case badges made, I guess it'll help out a little with the cost of running this site. Probably not by much though. Assuming a very generous $1 profit per badge, we're probably looking at less than $200.

Of course, if we get a really cool logo, we can branch into lapel pins, baseball caps, t-shirts, underwear...

Or maybe not :-)

Since I know it can be fairly time intensive, I don't mind helping out by mailing out the badges if you need volunteers. I just don't want to be collecting the money.

Wussboy glad to hear it. I like it too but I agree with the earphone/earmuff comments and haven't been able to come up with anything else.

PhilgB: Can you give us a link to a larger version, for some wallpapering? :)

I wanted to make it as large as my desktop but it gets very ugly then.

What kind of desktop? What res?

Like this one?

Or like this one?

I can redo the second if that's what you were looking for.

DG I dont think they'll let us use their cat.

Now this last one is really getting somewhere. But you are right, we will need another cat there. Can I also suggest making it a bit more contrast? Or, maybe have two versions - with low and high contrast. It will be dificult to see what's on the picture when it is a case badge close to the floor...

Looks good. Just need to tweak the cat so Mike doesn't get sued and maybe make the lettering a bit bigger.

Arrg....so a logo for SPCR for has come down to a sleeping cat? I'm sure some people think that's cute, but I was looking for something more classy, more original. :roll:

Never wanted the cat, just put it up to see what it would look like. I wanted something simple like the first one...

PhilgB, great work... all or yours look very professional. i actually like the one with earmuffs best so far, but i can see how it could confuse people... they might think we're DJ's or something :wink:

how about a PC with "0dB" stamped on the front? i'm just trying to think of other easily identified quiet things: a mime, a mouse, hear-no-evil monkey, a muffler, one hand clapping, zipped lips, mute button, etc. but i have a hard time visualizing how any of these could ever look good. let's keep the ideas coming.
main: Ryzen 5 2400g + NH-U12S, Asrock B450 itx, Inwin A1 + Cosair SF450 Platinum, 16B Patriot Viper, WD Blue m.2 500G & 3TB WD Red
RIP: Athlon II 240e + Dark Knight, MSI 785GM-E65, Dell RM112, 4GB G-Skill, HVR-2250, 256GB Samsung 830 & 3TB WD Red, CM Elite 341
laptop: Dell XPS13 9343 FHD i5, 128GB SSD, blissfully silent almost all the time

loren_b lol

Going to work on something with the 0db.

Bluefront's right about the 'no cutsey animals' thing...

I like the hear-no-evil monkey, but might give same impression as headphones.

I was originally going to suggest showing a pin bouncing off next to a computer a la the old Sprint commercials (if you're American). But I realized that might be too difficult.

Something that might be interesting to pursue would be a PC that's in bed with Zzz coming out of it.

The problem with that is that "Zzz" is the noise of snoring, and snoring can be very loud.

If cute animals/mascots are out, how about a glider, or a submarine?
