The Logo, Decision '09

I am proposing a final vote on the logo. The Baron has made some emotive comments which may or may not reflect other members concerns...and whilst he insisted he doesn't care, the fact that he has mulled over this for 2 days prior to commenting means he actually does 'give a dram.' we all should! Pride in our club is very important, and an appropriate symbol is a big part of that.

Furthermore, the logo is pivotal for my merchandising plans, starting with shirts...and ultimately leading to our own underwear line...Distant Thunder undies, hmm, El Capitan may endorse this.

Now Dave has spent considerable time and effort putting the two logo's together, which have culminated in the crest (above) and the winged (below):
I am proposing a simple (and final) or the other. All members have until Sunday 8pm to vote. The poll is open now.

Remember, sober we stand…pissed we fall.



  1. I can't believe this is getting so out of hand!!!!! ;-)

  2. Honorable Secretary, thanks for the compliment, but I haven't spent a considerable time and effort putting these logos together. I thought that was obvious from the dodgy quality of them. I approached it with an element of fun and parody rather than finest design qualities. By the sounds of discussion that may have missed the mark. So I urge members to get their mouse, put down their dram, and start designing in the interests of whisky democracy.

  3. I think they are freaken awesome Dave. I just have a personal preference and willing to make comment about it.

    To have a logo is to wear it with pride and not to treat it like the bastard son... he who is not spoken of.

    Go the winged logo! Go Icarus!

  4. I think they all have individual merits. But thanks for letting me know that one is like a bastard son not spoken of.

    Secretary, if there's disdain for the current setup, I'm not sure there's any point having a poll really.

    I'm sensing I don't have the required passion for logo creation of a whisky club. Selfishly, I just want to drink.

    Maybe they don't have a sense of 'booty' - whatever that is. My suggestion would be for someone to distill that 'booty' into logo form as a more viable alternative.

    The design process is a journey blah, blah, blah, so consider this as a solid first step. Half the battle is knowing what you don't want.

  5. Sorry Dave I have polio. I cannot walk that is why wings are so appealing.
