Camels With Hammers' New Logo and New Banner

All of this artwork is by Alexander D’Adamo, to whom I am extremely grateful.

Here is the official full logo:

And here is the coming new banner for the site (which will be a little bigger of course):

And here is the Facebook profile “Timeline” cover:

And I am sure there will be uses for the original logo. Ideally, it would rotate with the new one as that would create a neat effect. But we cannot yet do that with our banners. Here, for posterity at least, is the original logo:

Thanks everyone for your input on the earlier drafts here and on Facebook!

  • Fritz

    Neat.

    The higher contrast and simplified shape makes the hammer more visible.

    But I think the older colours for the camel were better, the new make it look kind of toyish.

    Regarding the rules of composition, I think the single glass splinter kind of “blocks” the recognition of the “A”. I bet the symbolism of the picture would be clearer if you lose this splinter.

    And maybe the ‘A’ shouldn’t be so strongly blurred.

    Why is camel plural, but there’s only one camel?
