Another year, another WVVY logo design

Minor changes may yet be made but I’m pretty satisfied, it shows up well at a distance, too.

I figured the catch phrase could be something like “If only we had this many antennas, then maybe you could hear us!” or is that self defeating?

On that subject: my fill in from Chris’ show this week will be available soon, and a snippet of Wolfie’s show yesterday. Damn recording software bugged out on me so I was only able to get the last quarter of his show, sorry Wolfie.

    I like it, how about “the community antenna”.. or “people powered radio” .. I like the idea that each antenna represents a voice, a show, a musical taste, etc.

    I don’t think I’m actually going to give it any sort of catch phrase, that’s not really my steez. I was just sitting there thinking “You know, the letters of the station could all be antennas if they were upside down, I should make a logo out of antennas!” so I did.

    I like it Maury. It would look great on a black tee maybe with a catch phrase “Tune In”

    It’s got a mad max jury-rig thang that gives me joy, yes indeed.

    “island radio for the planet.”

    Looks good! Has a kind of Christmas bent to it, all the lights and stuff.

    You’re a big Ralph Steadman fan, aren’t you? 🙂

  6. Maury Says:

    Thanks Wayne. And yes, I’m a huge fan of Steadman. Hopefully my stuff doesn’t seem like an outright ripoff 😛

    As for the Christmas aspect, a note: those actually aren’t lights, they’re silhouettes of dishes/antenna parts. The thing is entirely made of antennas.

    In creating the concept I was thinking, “oh, this makes sense: upside down antennas, we turn radio on it’s head… perfect metaphor”

    How low will you go?! Come on, upside down antennas, really? That’s pretty low–low enough to work! Brilliant Maury!!

    “Nobody circles the antennas like WVVY” — maybe curve them a bit?…

    So in line with the vvy ideals of retrofuterism, technopunk, and general good taste. Bravo.
