POLL DESCRIPTION

Which of these logos are suitable for the new "honorary lifetime" Knight TMPlar members?

You may vote for up to five.

Logo #1
Logo

This is the same logo as for supporting and sponsoring members, but with a red/white colour scheme reminiscent of the Templars.

Logo #2
Logo

This is a very simple, but more legible variation of my first design concept - a shield with the TMP initials on it. Think of it as a "heraldic avatar." This might strike a good compromise between size and legibility.

Logo #3
Logo

It's simple, elegant and plays off the the Templars' heraldry (a red cross on a white field).

Logo #4
Logo

Yes, that timeless classic, the One Ring to Rule Them All, is back for another performance. This time, there is a hint of whimsy, as the Ring rests cantedly with a circus-marquee headline next to it. All the more poignant, given what we now know about the tragic, fiery death of the young Ring at the hands of a careless short person. Now, it's power and prestige can surround you forever, as your new TMPlar icon. And we likess it, yes we does, my precioussss...

Logo #5
Logo

This logo represents the simple approach. A traditional shield bearing the Knights Templar Cross, to link the symbolism and play on words of "TMPlar," The laurel represents an achievement or honor being bestowed, as in the ancient Olympics in Greece. The variants of this are to present the logo in different highlights and shading. Again, I wish good luck to all and do not envy your task.

Logo #6
Logo

I like the consistency of having similar logos for the various levels of support offered to TMP, with only the colours changing (except, of course for out illustrious leader, the man with the fez). I was thinking red would be good because it seems to be a fairly templar-ish colour, but I gave it a touch more purple to indicate this highest honour in TMPland.

Logo #7
Logo

Whilst aiming for a little consistency in design, I felt lifetime membership required something a tad different and a nod to the TMPlar play on words. This option goes for the cross motif rather than the grail motif in my previous submission

Logo #8
Logo

I think it fits the title.

A templar cross with a knight piece, since chess was probably the first "tabletop" played with "miniatures"...

Logo #9
Logo

This is the same logo as for supporting and sponsoring members, but with a red/white colour scheme reminiscent of the Templars.

Logo #10
Logo

I believe my logo exhibits the qualities inherent in achieving the status of a Knights TMPlar.

The Helm is a symbol of the Knight that best represents the achievement of a distinguished member status. The crosses in the background is not so much a representation of religion, but that of faith and steadfastness - in this case, to our hobby. The combination also links back historically to the Knights Templar, a linkage that must be maintained in the logo. Various color schemes are more a matter of preference.

Should you select my logo, I would be honored. Should you chose another's, my hat's off to them. Either way, I do not envy your task. Good luck!

Logo #11
Logo

If we're going to "borrow" an historic group, then perhaps we should "borrow" something resembling the group's imagery.
