Does MFT Need A New Logo?

A visitor left this comment the other day that got me thinking about our MFT logo. He wrote:

I have only one suggestion! It would be great if you replace the bowl from your logo with a fish tank! Reasons behind this are, (1) Your site is ‘My Fish Tank’, not ‘My Fish Bowl’, and (2) Most Importantly, bowls are no good for fishes, except small labyrinths like Betta etc. and all fish lover aquarists should discourage people from keeping the poor fishes in tiny bowls!

I always viewed our logo as a funny logo which reminded me of back in the days when fishes were really put into bowls. sorta like a retro-logo i guess. but i’m having trouble getting a higher quality version of the logo and that comment got me thinking….do you think MFT needs a new logo?

I say keep it. It looks nice and really does have a nice “retro” feel to it.

You know what I think would be cool is that banner you had the first day the new site page was up, you know the with the trigger and it said “welcome to” that would be a cool thing to have displayed at the top of the page.

hmm..i think it would be cool to have a new logo! but im quite happy with the current one too

Actually come to think of it. I agree with Mushroomman. It would look good.

I am not opposed to a new logo or keeping the old one. I just think that if ya keep the old one, just redo it from the start as accurate as possible instead of fretting about improving the quality of the version you have in hand.

pfft, keep it

Heather April 4, 2007 at 4:52 pm

Keep it!!!

Eh like I said yesterday, I love our little logo 🙂 Wasn’t someone working on a drawing of it? I’ll have to talk to her and see how she’s coming with it.

I agree with Ryan, that logo would look sweet on the website. But very hard to put on clothing I would think. So either way I’m happy 🙂

I like the logo as it is. It has a very friendly/homey feel to it

I think its great as is. You know the old saying…. “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!!!” 😉

I love Mush’s idea. At least some form of it. I’ve tried…the bowl really is hard to get on a new logo. A tank might be possible though!

I like the current one. Keep it nice and simple like
