    Here's a concept I've been working on for the raid101 logo and a business card.

    Also can expand to:
    - letterhead
    - envelope
    - compliment card

    The concept: the letter I is actually an external harddrive.



    THE LOGO IN MID QUALITY:

    The logo might need to be slightly modified for xenforo and wordpress headers since logo images need to be very small.

    This is how the xenforo header looks like with the UNmodified version of the logo:

    Forum-Logo-ver01.png


    Xenforo header with the MODIFIED logo version:

    Forum-Logo-ver02.png



    WORDPRESS FRONT PAGE with the logo:

    BUSINESS CARD:

    Front:

    BACK:
    QR Code (try it now to see what it contains)

    BC-Logo-ver01-Back.jpg



    Let me know what you guys think :)

    PS. dbg : No, you don't get to change anything LOL If you don't like it, you don't have to use it LOL

    QR code on the visiting card is too small .. most smartphone cameras will have trouble focussing in on it ..

    It can be larger on on the back-side .. (but that will increase the cost .. )


    EDIT: oops.. missed the PS .. :p

    I like the concept, but not the HDD, because:
    1. Design is too detailed for smaller versions
    2. Mighty seem a bit geeky

    Rest I like. Also can't scan the QR code :(

    The flag was supposed to be an Easter egg actually, but that can go.

    Also noone here likes wordgames? Ironic to think that the website named RAID doesn't like HDDs, LOL

    OK.. maybe in intrest of moving it along... lemme ask you WHY exactly you don't like the HDD. What would you propose instead?

    If you substitute the HDD with the letter I (using the font), then you completely mess up the design. The design will become "flat", "bland", one-dimensional.

    dbg The QR Code is in standard size for the business cards. You can make it slightly bigger, but if too much, you mess up the design. Cost is not a factor since I would customize the design for anyone who wants it and they get it printed themselves.

    MOZ QR Code is scanning fine here (iPod Touch 4g). Not sure why you can't get it to scan. But in any case this is just a low res screen rendition.

    The problem here is if we use harddisk, wo go techy way. Inspite of the fact that most of us are techies, we are trying to shed that image and make this forum look more generic/general.
    As much as i liek hard disk or any other semiconductor device in logos and all, our target audience is not that kind of crowd.

    The QR code scans fine with the image displayed here .. but if you shrink this image down to the size of a business card. then it 'might' be a problem.. Its just a guess but the f2.8 cameras in smartphones again 'might' have trouble getting a clear focus..

    Well I love the design, but just for some suggestions on the printing technology that will be used by us, this has to go in through a 5 color Printing press, not a problem as my friend has the best equipment for such jobs but then we would needd to give a very big order !! or WAIT !!!!!
    We can get this on the latest Kodak machine he just getting it installed top of the line 5 crore machine and there the quantities can be lower too !!! :D
    Qrcode is fine !! don't change that.. it is perfectly suiting !!

    then the i and the hdd see if we want to show a lilttle connectivity then a usb plug can be used for connecting symbol as usb is universal connector :D and we are all about connecting !

    as for the header and everything you don't worry about that, coz I will mod the header and we can use this in its present iteration !!

    usb header connecting is being used somewhere aint it harryneopotter.

    The "Lifestyle Community" tag will have to change. Its just not going with the imposing/impressive logo. Something simpler like "Anything 1-on-1" or "Living 101" or "Life 101"

    I thought we weren't supposed to be specifically a technology forum and more of a community? Then why the hard disk? Most people haven't seen the insides of their computer. If we're not going to keep it basic, let's atleast keep it universal.
