Maybe something simple like this?
Apologies for the poor quality manipulation.
I'm sure someone could do better with Photoshop.
Typeface is Candara.

That's the one for me. Make it CPR instead of RPC and it's ideal.

I think we both just followed the logo order from the main Forum for consistency. They should be in the same order - whatever that order is though. :wink:

Ok ... i can go with that one too. The staggering of the web address is convincing enough and it's plain and simple.

Can you knock one up with the chevrons in the centre just for a quick look, appreciate it's not 'RPC' or 'CPR' compliant, just think it could look good :wink:

I have mixed thoughts about the DS badge. Basically I'd like to see it there but it doesn't seem to fit.
It might if on the round disc the Pug was moved to the right. Move Chevrons to the above centre with DS below it.

Ok, here are 2 more with the above suggestions - changed font to Candara, added DS logo, moved chevrons to the centre and emphasised the text to make it stand out a little and on the second one added the 'COM' to see how it would look. Apologies - these are a little large

Marc,

I do like version K.

Moving the lion to the right works well, as the lion now faces inwards to the rest of the logos/label.

The straight-line run of R-C-P also works nicely, and gets my first attention; the DS at the top gets noticed second, which (for me) id probably what it should be. If anything, I'd reduce the size of the DS to about 80% (maybe 75), not least to make it sit better in the reduced space at the top of the label.

Also (and I couldn't do it easily in Word) bring www and co.uk a tad closer to frenchcarforum. They're floating a bit at the moment. The amount of shadow around fcf on version I looks better, I think.

Looking good!

Ok Chris - I've put the Version K next to a modified version K - If I drop the outline on the text anymore it will look a bit too pixelated - so this is now dropped down to '2' as oppsed to '3'. i've resized the DS logo and reduced the vertical spacing on the www and com, ans slightly increased the font size to hopefully address some other issues of readability from a distance! :-D

Marc,

Just one little tweak more...
Lift all the webaddress text in K2, to be as close to logos as K.

co.uk ?

C.

Thanks Chris - I put the 'com' as I think V6 metioned about the possibility of changing the domain name - so just put it on to see what it looked like - the'co.uk' with the dot does look a bit odd when splitting the address like this especially without the '.' after the 'www'.

Here is the tweak then - left the old K2 for a comparison.

I do as well......but put a space between the words to aid memory as phone number is split. (everybody knows there are no spaces in a web address)

What font is it ?
