DrupalCampWisconsin is this coming weekend… On Saturday, January 19th, 2008 at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) we plan to geek out with Drupal for 12 straight hours.
One of the enjoyable parts of planning an event like this is the design aspect. Typically, I’ll kick out a logo design to get things going, and hope that others voice their opinion and maybe throw out some ideas as well. Well, the opinion part usually happens, but sometimes no one else presents design ideas, and we go with mine. (Or mine are just so awesome it intimidates people!)
For the DrupalCampWisconsin logo, I started out with an idea I used for BarCampMilwaukee2, using the outline of the State of Wisconsin…
I pushed it a bit, and ended up with a versions I (and others) seemed fairly happy with…
At some point, Bob asked about shirts, and from there Mike Rohde picked up the ball and ran with it. He tweaked and made adjustments, and took what I did and improved upon it, until we had what we have today… which I love.
It was really great working with Mike on the design process, and while I’m not paying him, I can honestly say that I’m sure his clients feel the same way.
So now that we’ve got a great logo, and the event is all set, you can buy the shirt from Goodstorm. (Oh, we did not markup the price, so all costs go to just covering the materials. Also, Goodstorm runs on Drupal. ;)
