I had been extremely tardy - almost a year late, in fact - in submitting my design for our group's logo and in my defence, I work about a 100 hours a week. Before I proceed to unveil my work, I shall preface this with our current emblem which was created by a fellow member who goes by the alias, Shanaz.
While I do not wish to subtract anything from Shanaz's elegant imagining of our brand, I humbly propose a slightly altered vision of the same basic scheme with a different colour palette and bolder dimensions.
In accordance to our locality, the national colours as reflected in our country's flag are blue, red, white and yellow. Blue signifies unity, red represents courage while white stands for honesty and integrity. These are honourable traits and we hope to live up to them.
Yellow, however, is the royal colour and it supposedly honours our many kings who supposedly rule by the mandate of Allah. To pledge our support to this arrangement is, in my opinion, an act of betrayal to our whiteness.
The scarlet 'A' is self-explanatory but for the uninitiated, it is inspired by the rallying mark of the Out Campaign conceived by the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science and it was in turn inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, in which its heroine was forced to wear the titular red 'A' by the puritanical community she lived in to mark her as an adulterer. We wear it in our own puritanical society ironically.
Aside from the redesign, I also put to you an entirely non-derivative proposition for our logo.
Feedbacks would be greatly appreciated. Which logo do you consider to be more memorable or aesthetically pleasing? More importantly, which one would you prefer to rally under?
