    Popcorn Need Help with a Logo!

    Hey everyone,

    2015 is kind of a milestone for CPF. We will be 15 years old!!

    The celebration is going to kick off at SHOT Show 2015 in Las Vegas (details HERE). One of the things I am doing is having some T-shirts made up. The front will have the new, more modern logo image (to be revealed later... ) on it and the back will have the logos of many of the manufacturers and dealers who have supported us over the years and we've come to know and love.

    So here is what I need from you all... I need a word logo to go with the image. I would like it to start with.... "15 years of... ". I need suggestions to finish that statement. And I can't use anything that would infringe upon any other copyrighted logo (ie. "... leaving the lights on for you", etc.)

    Now here's the deal - I will be the one who decides on the "winning" logo. The person whose logo I decide to go with will get one of the T-shirts for free once they are made. It's that simple.

    I will be making a decision and announcing the "winner" on Friday, December 5, 2014.

    After SHOT Show, the T-shirts will be available for sale (and various give aways) here in the forums.

    Ok... have at it! Let's see your suggestions...

    ILLUMINATION or maybe spell it: 15 Years of Illumenation.
    Or: 15 years Lighting the World

    I have to say... I'd already considered both of these and like them. ... Let's see what others have to say...

    That stands out so far Although I think wave needs to be plural Waves.

    PS: the thing we're discussing is called a slogan (or less accurately, a tagline or strapline), not a logo. I was a bit confused by the subject at first.

    Controversial? I think it's quite a bold claim that photons are waves...

    Incandescence has a second meaning: very angry. Maybe that's appropriate

    I think the best suggestion so far is "15 years of illumination" - it's short, simple and the second meaning of illumination is "spreading knowledge" hence the word "illuminati" which means "enlightened".

    Don't lets the facts get in the road of a catchy slogan and surfing covers the way most of us discovered CPF.

    I also think it sounds cheesy and a touch forced. The word "surfing" in relation to the web is cringe-worthy. It was mainly used by outright technophobes or wannabe cyberpunks in the late 90s and has got steadily less fashionable since. I expect it's got about 20 years to go before it finally becomes kitsch.

    Might be a location thing, it's still in common usage in Australia. I certainly don't put your definition on the word. If that's how you perceive it from where ever your part of the world may be, you might be right.
