I do NOT like the changes Munkholt made to the Masthead. Penfold's version as at Tuesday morning with the Pillars and Solid S&Q was far better to my eyes than this latest version and I feel things should have been left as they were.
Then why didn't Munkholt correct these aspect ratio problems not chop the Pillars out completely!? To me B&J play a very important part especially in Craft Masonry. As for the S&Q the solid Golden one that Penfold's original had was far better than this washed out "watermark" . At least the "G" is still there and it is not the emasculated S&Q one sees too often these days.
No, I wish he had left it alone.
In the end it's Lee's Forum and he must make the final choice but I have to enquire, who asked for it to be changed?
Thanks far nicer by miles!. Why didn't you simply send that revised original one to Penfold instead of the changed one?
Now I am going to see if I can somehow get it to load on my home PC instead of the new one every time I access MFOL? I think the bit I hate the most about the new one is what you did to the S&Q. I detest that Ghostly logo and greatly prefer the solid one of the original version!
Like I said, I did send both (the original first, even).
And I also offered to take a second look at the S&C in the other thread. Maybe it wasn't very clear because I talked about moving it, but that's because it can't sit in the same position and be solid. But it could move to the right (or left). The reason why I didn't much like that, was that the 'G' would end up higher than the rest of the text and that looked unbalanced - not impossible, just not the ideal solution. I also tried moving the title up to match the 'G', but the text looked weird not standing on solid ground. Anyway, I'll take another look at the S&C, possibly tonight.
Oh, as everyone knows, designing the logo is the most important decision for any new organisation to make, if they want to be taken seriously. Followed by stationary and business cards. Coming up with an actual product is waaay down on the list.
Anyway, it's a minor fix, so I'll just go ahead and switch it. I promise to come up with something including pillars for the 10-year anniversary. ;D
I like the new one. In my eyes it looks better as the top logo. Even in the corected version, with the pillars they still looks a little massed. I can see why some would like too see the pillars, but... I like what the new one does for the top. The pillars could be incluede elsewhere, so we still would have them.

Excellent way to settle the matter Steve. I made the decision on which logo to use as Thomas's masthead was the correct orientation, well put together and the correct perspective to my eye. Buth, democracy rools here so it's to the vote!
