Single graphic for Teresa: RCJO-gradient colorLogo.jpg
|Above are the most recent representations of a new shirt logo for
RCJO. The upper left is the original concept, but we felt that it
looked too much like a button (Thanks to Greg for pointing that
out!). The others are just variations on the "unbutton"
style, all of which were developed toward the bottom left color
version. The gradient colors in the orange sunset over the twin
cities skylines and that slight hi-light gradient in the blue are nice
for published versions, but we would have to very likely use the solid
version on the right for embroidery. I am, however checking as of
the 1st of December of '05 on whether or not this might be possible with
a particular logo shirt shop I have in mind. The other ones above
in the grey half tones would be possibly used in black and white
publications of events, such as news releases. This is sometimes
needed, however these days that requirement is becoming more rare. I am
currently checking on "no-iron, low maintenance shirts for
pricing. We will be going with a white long sleeve shirt with a
dress collar so we can add a solid color tie (I suggest either black or
the darker blue tone). I will post everyone as soon as I know
more. We will be doing a single prototype before we commit to
ordering shirts for the full ensemble. We think this will be a more
visible uniform logo with a more formal appearance for the band when we
need the look.
