Just playing around with your ideas.

I like 2,4,8. As usual, some other admin team members should weigh in. 

Note: The Red logo will always be 1. All the other colors will have the shortened form.

4 for me!

I stick with 1. Brick+LDraw.org is what we are known for  ... but since there is no strong feeling for branding everything will do.

Yes. The Red brick will always be like 1. I'm never going to change that. In fact, I may make it bigger and more prominent (hence why I wanted higher resolution images). The shortened logo idea is for the ones in the upper right (like the blue Forums brick) since I thought having the huge "LDraw.org" twice was redundant, especially if I make the main red brick larger.


RE: New Banner images - Leonardo Gonzalez - 2020-08-04

My apologies if I have created any confusion.

I have a few questions so we can solidify the understanding of what is being done:
  • I see the Wiki does not use a banner but instead a picture (logo) on the top right. Do you plan to make a custom template to incorporate banners? What's the plan there?
  • Will you be keeping the blue gradient on the main page or replacing it with a clean white background to match the forums? (I'm all for the white background, it reads better)
  • I understand that the main banner will be "LDraw.org Centralized LDraw Resources", should we remove the redundant "LDraw" word in the left side banner as it is suggested with the right side banners?
  • I do believe the domain name should always appear with the brick. If the image appears somewhere else there is no guess work and having the domain on the logo could help upcoming digital builders find the site. (or generate traffic potentially) Personally I am inclined to #5 or #8 in the banner options. They show the domain below (for the right side banners) and they have plenty of space for the name of the section they belong to. Spacing needs work on #5 to make it more appealing. Thoughts?

You're not confused. I keep changing the goalposts. Sorry.

The wiki is a special case. I'm not sure what we'll do there. There are a few of options:
- Use a shortened form of the Red Brick logo in the corner and nothing else
- Use the short wiki logo in the corner and have the full Red Brick logo as a banner on the home page
- Use a shortened form of the Red Brick logo in the corner and have the full wiki logo as a banner on the home page (not a fan of this one)

It'll probably change but we're still discussing it. IF you have ideas feel free to weigh in over at that thread.

I don't want to change the main, full Red Brick logo. We've had it for years and it's part of our branding. Same for any shortened version we may use. The phrase "Centralised LDraw Resources" should be preserved.

That's 2 for 8 so let's go with that for the subdomains images (i.e. the non-red colors).

I rearranged the images to easier see the layout. Do we really want to have "LDraw.org" on both?

In most cases no. That's why I suggested the compact version.

Looking at now I'd go for number 5 in:

and remove LDraw altogether on the right side.
