I like the new logo very much. The size, style and position of it is much better than before. I probably fall into the camp of people that feel the banner as a whole is a bit busy with too much of a newt jamboree at the edges (the verrucosus looks like it should have a rugby ball tucked under it’s arm ). I really like the misty forest background in the middle – IMO a wide angle shot of that forest and the text in the middle would be enough to get my imagination going.

I personally think its spot on.

We could go on all day wanting to see a species on there one of us keeps.
Its a great improvement and, as Mark says, the forest type view in the centre evokes many thoughts of field herping.

Nice one

Ben

The transition on the right from forest to pond is a bit rough (green stripe). Perhaps the salamander's tail in the foreground?

I think the verrucosus is a bit swallowed up by the tiger sal's gills, which does not do it justice. Verrucosus is a beautiful species, and shouldn't be hidden by another.

Just so you know, I LOVE the texanum photo. In fact, you should change the entire site just to Ambystomatids.

Default Re: New Caudata.org Logo

Regarding the European species point: I'll keep that in mind - if I have an appropriate photo I will use it, though it might end up being a "Near Eastern" species. I will be replacing the Tylototriton verrucosus because I'm not happy with it.

Re: changing the texanum as raised in the moderator forum: I feel the same way as Kaysie!

OK, if you don't see a Fire Salamander left of the "Caudata.org" then you are not looking at the latest version of the logo. Load this link and then click "reload" or "refresh" in your browser:

Elektra says that those two gigantic newts on the right could be smaller, and a picture of her could easily be inserted. Also, I think Jen was on to something about making them all a bit more appropriately sized in relation to each other. Now every time I look at it I think about the disproportionate sizes. But aren't you sick of all these nitpicky opinions already?
