The Man, itself, has changed the way it is constructed. Since 2014 it has been more solid and less “scarecrow”. (timeline)
Which makes me wonder if we should update the Pink Heart Logo.
At its core, our logo is a Pink Heart. Like the “Red Cross.”
But we also use our signature font and images of the man in order to give context.
We choose to use a more realistic version of the man instead of the simplified icon )'(.
We have also used different versions of this theme by integrating aspects of the year’s theme.
Some brainstorms of how an upgraded logo could work. One thing being discussed is the amount of detail to include. i.e. the new Man has some unusual poles that stick out of the neck, shoulders and arms. Should they be included? Should arms be up (celebratory) or down (calm)? What about the lines on the face? Should we introduce a new, much more stylized logo?
Another factor in play is that we are considering a metal medallion that cannot have fine detail. So a Man like seen in #10 may be the best we can do. Worth compromising for a cool medallion?
See? Burning Man isn’t all fun and games!!!
