Should I Re-Logo?

My friend Phil who does the great illustrations for most of the Blogger Knowledge articles created two new logos for my blog. (I did the original with a Wacom Tablet that my friend Greg gave me.) This image I emailed to Flickr has mine on top, then the two Phil did for me. The middle one is really cool but it doesn't fit in my layout. What do you think? You're the one that looks at my blog (unless you are a fancy pants and you have a newsreader). Do I need an update?

I think your current logo is spiffy enough, but if you have to change, I'd pick the last one.. the middle doesn't quite fit.

I like the 3rd more than the 2nd one, but I have to say I still like the original best. It's doesn't try to look like something else out there and it says that I may be a Genius but I'm casual about it.

The middle one is def. the coolest. So it may not fit the design, just change the design?

Number 2 definitely rocks. If it doesn't fit, I say use a ball-peen hammer til it does!

The middle one is really spiffy, I say go for it and re-design.

Hi Biz,

I would stick with your current one; IMHO, it's fits better in the current page design: simple, casual, and witty.

Ahmed said...

The third one looks good. Go with it!

hi, #2 is the best one, I think it fits perfect with your layout if you change your a:link style to a brown or #c00 color.

Jeff said...

Definitely #2! It's got that Dexter's Lab / Elroy Jetson thing going on that's definitely Biz. And as for fitting your layout, you're a bigshot muckety-muck at Blogger. Have one of your underlings take care of it!

Hello.
I like reading your blog. I love original logo. second one looks cool ,and third is friendly.
If I need to choose one, I would use third one. But I would paint more orange shadow^^

I still like your original one the best, but out of the new ones, I like the last one best!

Hi Biz

Your current is great. Maybe change the blue to another colour(s).

I like your tips. I hope that mine is worth a penny at least.

Bite the bullet. Redesign everything. You need it. (sorry, you asked ;) Or if you're just going to commit to a new logo, at least do some back-and-forths with the designer and really flush out what it will be. Good logos often take weeks. But if you're going to be using this site for years it's a no-brainer to put the time into it. It is, after all, a website.

hey Biz,
I like number 2.
cheers

Brad said...

The top one.

Resist change for the sake of change.

Theresa Z said...

Number Two is fabulous, eye catching and um...nifty...and nifty is swell.

Puffy K2 said...

I like number two. It's...nice.

Siona said...

Leave it! I do like the second, but the first is by far my favorite.

I don't know. Perhaps I'm just fond of the familiar. It's got a great Dr. Seuss-y quality to it. It's nice to see at the top of the page. I'm a fan. Don't change.

Trevor said...

Yeah, you should change it. It doesn't matter which one really, they are both nice.

Change is good. Stagnation is bad. Ummmmkay?

Definitely go with the middle one. No doubt about it. Change your site layout if you must.

Graham said...

Bummer, I should have voted before you counted. Not that it would have mattered much, of course. I liked the bottom one.

BB said...

Biz,

The second one is by far the coolest. You should really consider adapting it to the blog.

Tony said...

I'm a bit late and it looks like you've already decided, but for the record, I like the second one too.

Don't forget though: Change is the enemy of the revolution...
