Rebranding
« on: June 22, 2015, 12:13:01 pm »
We are looking into getting a new logo, before that goes too far there was some previous talk about changing out name/image.

Personally I think we should go away from the 'club' aspect. It makes it seem more exclusive and there is really no perks to being a member other than you sort of get to have a vote for things.

Ideas? Thoughts?

Saskatoon Combat Robotics (SCR) (IMO these days combat sounds more like mechwarrior style to me)

Saskatoon Fighting Robotics (SFR)

Saskatoon Battle Robotics (SBR)

Out of the ones you listed, my vote is SCR.  That's what I've been calling us in professional emails, but I feel four letters is better than three.  I like the word Organization to end it, but SCRO is just asking for trouble.  Saskatoon Combat Robotics Organization of Theoretically Unattainable Mayhem.   :o

We could stay SCRC by changing Club to Company.  Then it sounds like we produce destruction entertainment!  It doesn't sounds like a thing you can join anymore, but does it need to be?  Kilobots events are the thing you join.

Is there a benefit to being a member?

Here is a concept:



Could we rearrange the order?

I'm not against a rebranding, though I don't mind the existing name. I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with being a club. I mean, that's what it is, right?

I do like the half-saw blade logo, though. Looks deadly.

Not changing the logo means not having to repaint the logo on the arena floor...
[edit: and the backside steel panel]

Ok I was wrong. We could use vinyl decals for the end plates.
