cre8asite … or cre8apubcrawl?
Did anyone spot the new topical logo at cre8asiteforums? A little history: in March of 2003, at a time when the cre8asite forums were fairly young but getting attention due to the considered and deliberate decision to ensure the forums covered more than search engine optimization, I was playing around (completely unasked, I'll admit) with a new logo.
The challenge (again, unasked) was to design a logo that was brandable, to harmonize to some degree with the blue color scheme of the phpBB forum layout, and, not the least, to ensure that people noticed the 8 in the domain name so that they had a chance of remembering it. Heck, even I had difficulty typing it on a daily basis: cre8site, crea8site … nope.
The logo was liked enough (or was, at least, graciously accepted by Kim Krause) that it was adopted, and the motif has since been carried to the other sites in the cre8asite network: cre8asite Resource Library and the cre8ive Flow Blog.
This was a logo with a life of its own. The cre8asite crew and members soon took to festooning it to honor various holidays. Not to mention that a good number of them are Brits, and so one reads a lot of light-hearted bantering about drinking. To hear them tell it (aided as always by "Grumpus"), few waking hours are spent not teeteringly drunk. Or on a pub crawl.
Today I notice this. Well, okay; I know I'm buried in work and really, really (really) have no idea what holiday that might be. Teasing aside, it's the cre8 crew celebrating the forums' second anniversary.
Happy Birthday, cre8. Many happy returns.
