A deeply unimportant question

Which icon should I use for typophile?

(Bonus question: what are these letters from?)

Keep the current Icon

I may second that. Keep that one.

The one YOU like. (It doesn't need to be typographic... What's wrong with the current one?)

Create an animated .gif that slowly disolves between all three.

Cheers, Si

The second one is Econo Lodge. The other one is driving me crazy.

Silly me, they both are.

I think you should use either:
a) a picture of an Alaskan mountain
2) an elf, or alternately, any Seattle Seahawks imagery
iii) a nightvision-wearing G.I. Joe-like head
IV) a picture of you


five) a weird grainy monkey candle photo

Good job, Chris!

Original photo is here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/eeblet/266625039/. I may just stick with my current icon, but I was amused by both of the e's, and I wanted idle conversation on the topic. Thank you for obliging, all of you/y'all/you-uns. (Stupid english.)

Nice monkey.

since your user name begins w/ ee, why not:

Good job, Chris!


Beth, after following your flickr link I realized that your flickr icon has the same color palette as your Typophile icon... but the two pictures look like complete opposites! Almost like a Jeckyll and Hyde split, or a funhouse mirrorview... ;-)

Dan, I used to have a monkeylike candle that a friend gave me as a going-away present... Don't know where it is these days, but I had it in my bedroom for ages.

I like the title of this topic. It could be used for a recording. Perhaps by the group Shishi

I still like the "live long" one.

Or not.

Not Animated! Arrrrrgh.

Heh, I am pleased to have started controversy. Let's see.... how about Obama vs Clinton? Mac vs PC? How awesome Arial is? Just kidding.

I might stick with my current icon until bored with it. I suppose it is the same palette as my flickr icon, but it's kind of inevitable when you live in a bright green room.
