New Logo for Old Men.



Okay, The Curmudgeon has worked in marketing for years (he's really old) and my marketing experience is confined to promoting a very successful bass bagging hexagram.
The old chap says, of his logo, "In this case 'curmudgeon' is stated clearly and consisely and the associated grouping of curmudgeons is indicated by the cluster of heads above the wording."
He then lists four bullet points that explain the logo: clear, concise, informative and elegant.

Maybe the diamond represents an idea? Presumably a good idea? We can guess that five curmudgeons worked on the idea. Or maybe the five 'heads' represent all the curmudgeons?
Certainly, when a post is put together, it always pops up in the same place - on The Curmudgeon's blog, indicating that no one is going to be interested in scrolling through the twenty or so curmudgeon blogs every day to see if there is anything new. Let's face it, they're just not that interesting. Some people have said that the 'five heads' look a bit like a rugby scrum, with the no 8 and the flankers missing, and the ball is popping out the back, but where's the half back? This is not a bad interpretation of the disarray one experiences with this oversized bunch of old men.

Look, I could go on with further analysis of this half hearted attempt at a logo when maybe a picture of an old people's home would work better and be far more accurate, but I have more important things to do.

Here at The Bass Bagging Hexagram we don't waste your time with weird logos like the one above that could just as easily be interpreted as five buttocks. What could the diamond be then?

Our logo is simple to understand. The six points of the star represent our six outstanding blogs. That's it - no deep and hidden meanings.

Simple and effective

Confusing 

Fortunately (most of) our readers are an intelligent lot and will get my point.
Have a good day.
Ciao.

I guess that it's raining in Wellington.
It's a great day up north - just like summer.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

A good day here too. Just done the lawns.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Rain just started here.
I was going to do the lawns but it was too hot.
I did two large loads of washing and hung it out - and then the rain came. Bummer.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

At least you know it will be very clean.

Robert ha detto...

Water is an interesting substance.
It falls occasionally from the sky.
Where it came from we can guess,
The Lord recycled it from our piss.

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Thank you Robert.
And I guess thanks to the lord whoever he may be.
I prefer to think that rain is recycled from more fluids at ground level than just piss. If I'm wrong I definitely must get a better pair of gumboots.

Richard (of RBB) ha detto...

Or his.
