Logo swirl sparks 'sperm' jibes

A new logo for a north Devon resort which some residents have likened to a sperm has been defended by a "laid back" council.

The "idiosyncratic" swirl incorporated in the £5,000 logo for Ilfracombe has been criticised on the town's website, but Fresh Bread Marketing, the creators of the identity, said the swirl on the logo was meant to resemble a fish or dolphin. The swirl represents the dot on the "i" of Ilfracombe on the logo "Ilfracombe - curious coastal charm".

Ellen Vernon, economic regeneration officer at North Devon Council, which helped to develop the branding project with £5,000 funding, said: "To many, the 'swirl' represents Fore Street, the Harbour, a fish, an ice-cream and even waves. To others it may look like a sperm, which makes it vibrant and life-affirming."

Is it just coincidence that The Mirror reports that this town has a dire teen pregnancy record?!

Online Event hosted by Apple

There has been much debate about Mac v PC, especially in business. This event provides the opportunity to meet a small company that experienced the difference the Mac makes.

Apple are hosting a free online seminar with a live Q&A session on the 2nd of December 2009 from 19:00 - 20:00.

It will focus on James Stevenson, Managing Director of Virtual Aviation, who switched his company to the Mac platform after years of working with PCs. Not surprisingly, as it's Apple sponsored, James tells us how the change has helped his company improve operational efficiency, share data with ease and even manage customer accounts and bookings remotely using the iPhone.

Nevertheless of interest to all those contemplating moving to the mac platform.

Future Designer laptop

Who wouldn't want an unfurling portable computer? Steve Jobs take note of the flexible display from Orkin Design...

Does anybody know what this font is?

I really like the illustrative qualities to this font and was wondering whether anybody knows what it is? It's Westfield's 1st Birthday logo, so may have been a commissioned illustration, but I believe it is a font.
