My New Logo


This is my new campaign logo. You'll be seeing it rather a lot over the next few months. It's designed by a young graphic designer in North Walsham. I'm using it on some campaign merchandise - mugs, mousemats, keyrings etc, which you can buy by >CLICKING HERE. All profits from the sale of these items will go to my campaign. Posted by Hello

I like it Iain, oh how grateful you must be not to have a long name!

Iain Dale said...

Quite! My Mother said to me when I was 18 I should use my middle name, which is Campbell, and add it to my surname, so I'd become Iain Campbell-Dale! She said "it would help you get on in life". It took me aboit two nanoseconds to tell her what to do with her helpful suggestion. Can you imagine how I would fit that on a logo?!

A shilling short of fifteen quid for a mug? Rapacious!

Purely in the interests of countering inflation, I would direct any readers interested in quality ceramics at less than one quarter of the price to the following website

I know the people who run LibDem Image. Good friends. Happy to promote their wares. James, in the end you get what you pay for. You want quality? You know where to come...

Liam said...

Thank you Arthur Daley! You can take the boy out of West Ham but you can't take West Ham out of the boy.

Iain Dale said...

James, you're right. And I'm getting fed up with saying that. We're agreeing far too much lately. Can't you make some comment about how terrible my new logo is, or soemthing? I miss the old days when we would disgagree about everything...

Come on Mr Dale. I thought would-be politicians were supposed to be honest. You're not really trying to tell me that Ian Dale Campaign 'coasters' are really a best-seller are you? (That's what it says they are on your link!) Anyway coasters are a bit 70s and antiquated aren't they? Heading straight for the remainder bin I'd have thought! Mind you I suppose there are similarities between them and Michael Howard and his Tories. Perhaps its a partnership made in heaven.

Iain Dale said...

If that's the worst comment you can make, then I'm well satisfied... Take it you won't be voting for me then...

Liam said...

To be fair to Mr Dale for once, I still use coasters to prevent damage to my surfaces (tasteful stainless steel ones, mind you). In fact, I often use them when sitting back with drinking a nice warm pint of Watney's Red Barrel and listening to Sister Sledge while wearing my polyester flares. And nobody has ever accused me of being "a bit 70s".

I got to say I like that logo. It simple but effective. Having one shows a bit of get and go as well...which seems to be lacking in some quarters.

We are fam-il-y, all my sisters and me. We're lost in music. Caught in a trap. No turning back.

I must say the people I associate the George cross with are frequently sexist, racist, homophobic and aggressive. Your logo mainly calls to mind spotty pallid white youths on council estates who seem to like using the St George cross as curtains to keep the sunlight out while they sleep their diamond white hangovers off. A rather narrow stereotype I know, but I haven't seen much to change my mind. People who fly the St George cross all year round in my experience are frequently sexist, racist, homophobic and prone to unnecessary acts of aggression. I know there's been a campaign to rehabilitate the cross as the symbol of good ol' England - but it doesn't seem to have permeated down from the chattering to the battering classes...
