So, I have been working on the logo for KeepOpen.com, as many of you know already. I posted about it right before christmas. These two are the last finalists for the logo.


Really, I think we've decided on one of them. One of them really works better...but I can't let the other go out of an intellectual attachment to the simplicity of the idea.


Anyone wanna guess which one wins and which one loses?

The first one (left) expresses the idea better to me.....but I don't totally appreciate the name KeepOpen since it could refer to so many things.

It does refer to a lot of things. That's why we're using it.

1st - We're using open source software on our servers to create our content management system.

2nd - We like open standards, because proprietary formats are SO last century and we believe that the internet it about collaboration.

3rd - We're all about opening the door to allow non technical people to control their own web sites.

4th - We are in favor of open communication between us and our clients. We aren't going to have "self service" menus for domain registration, or tech support or e-mail, instead preferring that people just talk to us if they have a question.

There are more too...but I don't feel like coming up with them all right now. You, hopefully, get the point by now.
