I like the style!%0D*I'm new to this, but upon a closer look, is he going cross-eyed?

Wow wow wow ! love this Heeeeeeeeaps.

LOGOMOTIVE Feb. 05 '09

do you have the domain name?*

Reply
logotivity Feb. 05 '09

.com is taken.. possibility .org...?

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

that would work and might be more appropriate anyhow.*

nido Feb. 05 '09

Thanks guys!**haha.. logotivity!.. that looks awesome!**@maximus... yeah he is slightly cross-eyed.. no particular reason other then i thought it gave him a bit of character!**wow.. baldfrog.com is taken?.. is the name bald frog itself being used anywhere???... must check that out.**do we need a website?... maybe... eventually.. hadnt thought about it.

logoholik Feb. 05 '09

Hmmm, wouldn't want to spoil a momentum, but since it appears that they have tm-ed that name, it might be wise to go back to naming all over again... i would hate to see all the money raised poor in to some lawyers pocket instead of the ones in need... pity...

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

good point.. hows about *BOLD FROG*?.. *%22Band Of Logo Designers For Rights Of Generations%22*... ?**bold in this instance makes more sense the bald after all?.. (%26 only requires a very minor change!)

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

... and its available :D**so if everyone's cool with that?...

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

yes, because it kida sounds like Bull frog too :-)

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

Now that was express and even better imho. Bold frog? Now back to drawing board and make it bold! :)

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

I can help with domain name (if it stay available for long time lolz) and hosting space (at least for a while, till it brake my dreamhost limits :)

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

haha.. i did think that.. but there is something bold about him.. he has the guts to stand up %26 be counted.. even though he might not stand too high!**stretching?

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

Hmm, i hope someone form here registered it, since it is not available anymore...

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

@logoholik.. that would be cool.. but i dont want to ask anyone to do more then add the logo on their sites to raise awareness.. you know?.. i cant imagine what we would need a site for although an %22about%22 page somewhere would be cool.. (i did think of asking David for a page on here - logopond - as that way it would bring even more traffic to logopond %26 perhaps a bit attention to our work???)...**but if you can think of a good reason why we should have a site....

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

dunno... i feel that if we gonna do it, let's do it properly... one day it'll need a site perhaps, or at least a dedicated domain name, dunno... since bold frog is actually registered back in 2002 as it seems, where did you get it was available? :)

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

maybe we can use QuadMachine's naming machine and see what's available? %3B) http://www.breadlinedesign.com/naming_machine/index.htm

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

just typed in boldfrog.com in my browser.. nothing more then that :s

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

it was reg. in 02 what about BULDFROG U %3Dunited?

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

hhmmm could use that breadline.. but bald/bold frog actually meant something!..

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

boldfrog.org is available grab it. This is an org

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

someone grab it quick!!! ..please!**so are we all still ok with the logo/name as it is presented?

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

hmm, just investigated boldfrog thru http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://boldfrog.com and it seems it is not live since 2005 and it was only a directory site of sorts from the beginning, boldfrog.org could be the option after all... let me know...

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

@logoholick.. get it in case.. %26 i'll be happy to contribute if you need...**@wilson.. thanks man.. initially all i wanted was for people to be happy to stick the logo on their site as stated %26 on page to talk about the idea..

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

nido, might be nice to have the type together? so it would allow to add the .org with a bubbles or something?

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

Ahh, Wes, in the middle of my purchase - and now they charged my card... bad timing...

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

nevermind, refund will be reused for something, good thing is that it is in safe hands :)

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

well glad it's one of you and not some idiot lurker or troll.

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

@Wes.. whats your email?.. %26 thanks**@logoholik.. good effort my man.. thanks %3B)**@Mike.. ok.. but whats bubbles?

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

:) Wes, for a starter, until we have final logo %3B) redirect it to a forum thread here, we can move this conversation there too :)

Reply
logomotive Feb. 05 '09

I guess it does not matter as much adding the type together and adding the .org because this will mostly be used as a linking logo.

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

%5E agreed. makes sense. so it is official now? :)

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

if we're cool with the logo then its official :).. %26 we can move to the next phase!**I'll write up an about page... %26 we can start getting the logolink distributed!.. if anyone wants the source file let me know.**[email protected]**plus if you have friends who blog let them know too :)**yay!

Reply
nido Feb. 05 '09

@Tonfue.. cheers bud! very kind!!.. once i write up the 'about' page i'll post it to you %26 just set it up:)... email me... %26 get in touch with Wes.. he has the domain name.. (i dont really know much about web/hosting etc..)

logomotive Feb. 05 '09

It's your puppy (frog) Nido , you make that call, it works for me.

Reply
logoholik Feb. 05 '09

i'll put it up as soon as it links to about page or some explanation. Cheers all! Good effort! Pond became a true social site as it seems :) David, time to rethink it's growth as it seems branching in new dimensions :)

Re: domain name - consider boldf.org, which is available.

Reply

Too bad I'm locked out of the forum again :( stupid spammers causing automated rules to boot me out..

Reply
LoGoBoom Feb. 05 '09

ummmmm...does the frog look rather timid to anybody else? (as in not bold?) I know I'm late to this party but just a first impression.

Reply
logoholik Feb. 06 '09

Glen, i've had that same thought but i am perfect with nido's explanation. It does look like he's trying :)

Reply
nido Feb. 06 '09

...yeah Glen you dont have to look tough to be bold you know %3B)... he may look timid.. but he still has the guts to try %26 make a difference.. thats what makes him bold!.. hows that for cornball!

OcularInk Feb. 06 '09

Hey nido, awesome logo, dude. I like how the one eye is fully out of water while the other is submerged. Looks like he's stalking us. Seems bold enough to me. :-) I'm here to help in any way to get this idea moving. If you need a designer for the site or for the web banners, I can help. Anyways, glad to see you starting this effort and to see so many of us already wanting to be involved. Welcome to the new revolution. :-)
