Grazie the cow?

October 6, 2006

So one of the things you may or may not have noticed when we launched the new web site was the change in our logo. Sadly, after consultation with the legal-types, it turns out that all cow spots in the electronic and online universe are apparently owned by one particular computer manufacturer. When we were showing them logos, one particular cow spotted "G" that we were thinking of using caused them to shake their heads gravely.

Some people hated the cow spots, some people loved them, but overall I'd grown kind of fond of them. We played with all sorts of other logos but decided to keep it similar to the old one (at least for now). We kept the tail, but the cow had to be bleached. There are a few colored variants but in the end grazie may have to be put out to pasture.
