Talking HU Logo / Patch contest

The HU logo has been around for a long time - 11 years to be exact - and started out super naff, (I was going to show it but on second thought, maybe not...) to the current iteration, to a new one that looks great:


done by Erdem Yucel, who did the fantastic graphics for the new HU DVD series.

The current one:


has been described as "naff" for an HU Patch for your jacket, so here's your chance to come up with a new logo (which will be in addition to the new one above, which will go into use on the site as I have time) for use wherever is appropriate, stickers, patches, whatever, as possible.

Patch contest!

Winners get a free HU Tshirt (cotton from CafePress) and an HU Mug or similar, with their logo on it!

Post your submission here, and the top bunch will go into a Poll for voting.

Time is limited - you have three weeks to make your submission! Then it goes to a vote for three weeks.

Good luck and thanks for your ideas and support!

Does this mean the HU stickers you sold me on Sunday became obsolete by Tuesday?


Or should I keep them in mint condition to become collectors items?

One minor suggestion - If you decide to update the logo, drop the "www".
It's a bit redundant nowadays

No improvements came up, and everyone said to leave it alone, it's too well-known - so we decided to leave it as is!

Contest was 2009!

Stickers can be ordered from the souk ( /store )

and patches will be in stock soon.

you could be right - but it balances the .com I think - but I'll put it to Erdem and see what he thinks - he's a graphics wizard and does all our graphics now.

If patches are going to be made could I sugest a size that is good to go onto the arm of our jackets.

See you in Nacusp
