    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I think Pepsi should have just stuck with their 1962 logo
    I agree. It's the best one.

    Someone pointed out to me that the old Northwest Airlines logo has not only the little compass arrow pointing northwest, but it also transforms the N into a W with a line through it. Never noticed this until today [​IMG]

    Weird, I saw the "W" at first and not the compass arrow.

    I was disappointed to not be able to find the logo of the company with probably the worst logo in all of history. At one point in a previous position in an industry far removed from my current one, I was forced to do business with a company called Cre84u Millennium Graphics. The name was abysmal, and the logo, worse. As I recall, it involved a rainbow gradient with the name in Times New Roman in front. I believe their main business was selling branded products to fishing lodges along the NW Pacific coast.

    I used to be with this small bank - when I first arrived in Italy. I still can't decide whether I like their logo or not. It's quite clever how they have incorporated all the letters, possibly. Banca Popolare Di San Felice Sul Panaro: [​IMG]

    Maybe it was all the weed I was smoking at the time, but I always loved this logo. See the Montreal Expos Baseball (club) in it?

    Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath lost his wife to cancer a few months back. The foundation (attracting a lot of attention at the moment as the current Australia v South Africa game is in her honor) raises money to recruit cancer nurses to rural Australia. The logo itself is M-for-McGrath shaped cricket wickets, with her in pink (wearing-pink days are their fundraising thing), and of course, him supporting his wife using the wickets as bodies, bails as arms, and cricket balls as heads. A lot happening in it...

    Cool logo. I went to school with Stuart McGill [​IMG] (shameless and OT name-dropping, hahah!).

    The two greatest political logos of all time:

    [​IMG]

    and

    [​IMG]

    Going to say W is better because there is just so little to it and it has been used for any number of non-political uses.
