It's Not Only the Tories who Have a New Logo

There's a line in the movie Airplane where the Air traffic controller repeatedly says: 'Guess I picked the wrong week to quit smoking' or 'drinking' etc. Well I suppose I picked the wrong month to change my blog banner and ditch the English flag logo! But I do think it's an improvement, and as you will see it will change a little every few days. Well we can't have you getting bored, can we?

Hmmm... I made the comment a few below, but now you have a dedicated post:

Nice new banner. I treated myself to one over the weekend.

Branding, symbols, logos are supposed to encapsulate something of one's essence. Yours is dominantly pink or red...why?

Iain - the new style looks much better! A big improvement on the over-fussy previous one...

Zhukov said...

Much more professional - I like it.

Chris said...

Much improved banner Iain - excellent photo, you look a lot less scary now!

cheshire cat!

Roy said...

Much more stylish, less cluttered, and altogether a big improvement.

Ellee Seymour said...

It does have a certain contemporary look about it, but it is fresh and crisp too. Penny for your thoughts....

The sooner the change, the better.
That's not a very flattering photo of you, Iain.

Any chance of a picture of your Jack Russell?

It's very red.

Shouldn't it be blue?

Andrew Woodman said...

I think the banner looks better. Would prefer Blue rather than Red though!

Iain Dale said...

Cranmer, I suppose you're implying I'm a socialist sodomite. What remedies can you suggest for this condition?

Chris, scary? moi?

anonymous, I have yet to find a flattering photo of me. That's the problem!

anonymous, there are many pictures of Gio on my page on www.flickr.com should you be so inclined!

Andrew & Free Britannia, wait and ye shall be rewarded...

Andrew Woodman said...

Relieved to hear it Iain.

Bloody hell! That was a slight shock coming here and seeing that!

It's all new and very...red...hmmm Tory proudly displays his true colours!?:P Haha seriously though, looks more professional and more welcoming than the England flag (not that I have anything against it, it's just that it can give the wrong impression on a politically rightwing blog)...

Cough.

There is only one remedy for socialism, and that is labotomy. The remedy for sodomy is to try it once. If that does not restore the natural order, try prayer; if that is to no avail, try abstention; if that fails, there is the Abrahamic path of self-circumcision. This will enforce a period of discipline. If this fails, bugger it.

All you need to do now Iain is move to some decent blogging software like Wordpress (a world of freedom compared to Blogger) and you're set!;)

Peter from Putney said...

Iain, apart from the "begging bowl", you appear to have removed all the links and other sundry info from the right-hand side of your home page - hopefully this is just a temporary blip as you proceed with your redesign.

Man in a shed said...

Iain I'm afraid I'm still going to vote scary on this incarnation. Your eyes, on the picture, seem to be be looking directly at me from whatever angle I'm sitting - in a Scooby Doo, rather than Hammer House of Horror type sense.

Still - looks good.

Much better and well, errrm, modernised.

Rigger Mortice said...

needs more black..

smaller photo PLEASE!

Cranmer said...

Gosh, bright tourqoise now.

It's rather like some of your ties, but still a vast improvement on the pinky-red that you equated with gay socialism.

Bless you.
