One #PEGeeks Logo To Rule Them All

A few nights ago, I was toying around with the idea of designing a logo/icon to represent the #PEGeeks hashtag. For those of you who are not on Twitter, the #PEGeeks hashtag is what us techno-savvy Physical Educators use to help tag our tweets to make them easier to find and to facilitate discussion on Twitter. The hashtag is pretty popular and it represents a rather awesome network of professionals.

That being said, a few of us #PEGeeks (
@benpaddlejones, @mrrobbo, and myself) were bouncing around ideas for a logo that we could use to design some custom clothing. However, because this logo/icon will be representing so many great teachers, I thought it might be interesting to ask for some feedback, thoughts, and suggestions here before we move forward with the final version. I’ll post some of the drafts here and will create new ones based on your feedback. Once we have a few drafts prepared (let’s say by Friday February 24 2012), I’ll create a poll and we can vote on which logo/icon we like best. I’ll then vectorize the winning logo/icon and make it available online so that you can have custom clothing made by a distributor near you.

Here are some things you should consider when submitting feedback/thoughts/suggestions:

1. Because we’re intending to use the logo/icon for clothing, it should be as simple as possible (if its too complex, it won’t look nice on clothing)
2. I like designing things, but I’m a Physical Educator, not a graphic artist. Go easy on your design demands, please.

That’s all for now. Please feel free to leave your ideas/suggestions in the comments below and be sure to keep checking back this week as I upload new drafts (or you just subscribe to ThePhysicalEducator.com’s blog). You can also tweet your ideas to us or share them via Facebook.

Looking forward to collaborating on this with all of you (and can’t wait to get some #PEGeeks swag)!
