    Four out of the six logos are showing dirt bikes rather than dual sport bikes. I have nothing against dirt bikes but for and ODSC logo?

    Voted. Only one logo incorporates an Ontario symbol (vs. Canada). I think the chosen design should have the website address and the full club name on it. Great work on bringing this all together.

    We have a winner as chosen by our membership in this poll-



    This one rec'd 46 votes

    The runner up rec'd 43 votes (the version of this one with the Ontario Trillium motif)

    We'll make some tweaks to this one; ie- make it a dual sport bike, remove the lines at the bottom, and add our club name.
    PS this bike is climbing an embankment, not pulling a wheelie :wink: :D

    The lettering grossly overweighs the graphic.
    1) add ".on.ca" in lower case beside the red ODSC (same red center with blue border)
    2) put Ontario Dual Sport Club on a single line (same font size as current www text, but in caps)
    3) change the "swish" to green for a contrasting color
    4) perhaps a black border for all the text

    I was thinking about stacking the words like this:

    Ontario
    Dual
    Sport
    Club

    I would also would get rid of the url all together, it's not needed and it's easy to google.

    How about using the red ODSC as part of the web address, keeping the rest in blue lowercase.(similar to what Neil suggested) ??

    Take the club name and make it separate from the logo - this is a logo after all. The club name can be added optionally on different things with the logo and the tag line 'Ride Race Travel Adventure'(per suggestion from other execs) ???
    ODSC brings up our club name 1st on a google search anyways.
    That keeps things nice and simple...........

    Personally, I'd prefer no more colours, IMO this designer has done a lot with only 2 colours & it will be easier to print/embroider.
