    Did a quick BW one but I think some improvements can be made like font, placement, etc. In the mean time please comment and when i get home from work I'll make a better one.

    As our bounce rate is pretty high for mp3 car...this indicates that many people who come to our site, are not looking for car computing information. It also seems like with the change in mobile computing technology, BugByte's kill his carpc work log, and the proliferation of new FEs and a whole bunch of interesting work going on in all areas of mobile computing here, that this site is no longer just car computing. Just like a while back it was not just about playing mp3s in the car.

    But - this is our site - so if you guys think that mp3Car works better than maybe some new domain name that relates more towards mobile computing and innovation, then at the very least, it would be great to have an image that clarifies some of this.

    Interesting point about splitting domains....and the idea of two domain names might be interesting - to separate the company name from the forum itself?

    I really appreciate your thoughts on this - the better we can do at marketing to the companies that hire us and pay our bills, the better we can make these forums. Like print that bumper sticker and give it for free to meet ups and every order that is shipped.
    this completely changes the type of logo that you should be looking for(and we should be designing ). looking at the other images, and my own ideas, none of these would give a very professional look for the company--but most are good ideas for the forum (my idea for a forum icon are more for fun , a professional logo is more about what the company does).

    IMHO, it might be better to change/add a different domain name that can be used for professional business-and that better indicates what the company is all about. if i ran the show, i would probably do something like this, and just put something on the homepage that i also support mp3car.com..but i don't...and its only my opinion...

    Hello all,

    This is a few more ideas I'm working with at the moment.

    I'm expanding on the "M" concept, with the emphasis on "mobile". In these design ideas I'm moving away from logotype to a more defined logo featuring the letter "M" prominently. While I believe colors in a company logo is necessary these days, I've included black & white versions that can be easily printed on company letterhead, invoices, and other documents.

    The bumper sticker is for the forums and forum related events.

    Yes - I am leaning towards this concept of two names as again, the key is to keep the projects coming that allow us to support the forums.

    Hello all

    I played around the idea of making the logo transportation-centric. It depicts a steering wheel for a vehicle (car, bus, boat, etc) with the MP3Car text.

    im not too good at making pretty graphics but i like this idea


    emphasize the PC part, show a GPS graphic that also is a sort of cross hair, and then also the subtitle.

    Personally, I would like to see something like this with just a few alterations:

    - Lose the headphones (Possibly use just a couple music placed somewhere or nothing at all)
    - Get a little better silhouette / wire frame of a car
    - Have the USB plug coming out of where the exhaust pipe would be... representing that the car itself is "ready to be plugged in".
