As many of you already know, in August 2011, Toastmasters International redesigned and adopted all new logos, graphics, and an entire theme. The ramifications of this change are profound, since over 270,000 people worldwide belonging to toastmasters will soon start using the new graphics. Every piece of material that Toastmasters uses has already changed, including their website. All clubs are being urged (told) to update from the old seal/logo to the new style.
For HP Toastmasters, this has triggered an entire redesign of the theme, graphics, website, agendas, flyers, and everything else we use. For the last two months I personally have been designing our new club mastheads, logos, themes, and other graphics. Based on input from our club’s members, their interests, our previous theme, and the look and logo of the new Toastmasters’ artwork, I have come up with the final graphic today.
HP Toastmasters, I present to you, your new graphics..
Voted on for use just last Monday, the graphic is a modern, forward looking artwork. Clean, high tech, with bold impact, and an emphasis on our club’s global community. I was aiming for a modern art deco style, that blended with the new Toastmasters’ graphics, yet retains some of our original theme from before. The graphic is translucent and will blend with any background artwork.
Coming soon: the graphics and theme will soon appear on the website, blog, and in all HP Toastmasters documents. The website is still under construction, but I hope to have it working by next weekend.
In addition, I also designed the new masthead on the d5toastmasters.org website. I plan on doing the same overhaul to that site as well.
