Nobody stepped up to design a Loadsharers logo, so I did it myself. Here it is:
Yeah, I’m not much of a graphic artist, but I can do a semi-competent job of whacking together a simple logo when I need to. If you’re an actual pro and think you can fix this or do better, have at it. The
XCF SVG I made this from is in the Loadsharers repository at https://gitlab.com/esr/loadsharers
The only fly in the ointment is that I’m not entirely sure who owns the clipart image of Atlas that I’m using. I found it on some random sludgy “free” clipart website, in two versions: one with a copyright asserted by Can Stock, another inviting download from a site called Dreamlines. But I couldn’t find it by search and eyeball on either site. Email to Can Stock got no response.
I fear the only way I’m going to find out is if I get a Cease and Desist letter. At which point I’ll reply by saying “I tried…and have you got a vector graphics version I can buy the rights to?”
If you are a Loadsharer, feel free to display this proudly on your website, with a link to loadsharers.net. Someday there might be T-shirts.
UPDATE: The PNG this post originally linked to has been replaced with a PNG render of an SVG version made by A&D regular Rob Shinn that is ever so slightly cleaned up.
