    I like the way milepoint's forum list includes a nifty little logo against each airline forum. It is a nice touch - I am wondering if there is a way to polish the current BA logo so that it fits with the square format, whilst adhering to BA's own brand guidelines.

    I have a copy of BA's Brand Guidelines (V.1, September 2007) in front of me - this document suggests where horizontal space is restricted a vertical stacked format can be used, as demonstrated below:

    Alternatively, perhaps a crisper speedmarque is all that is needed. Taking a less is more approach.

    Any thoughts?

    That is a good idea to use the CI guidelines of the brandowner.

    I like the second one - the BA Logo against the white background with "British Airways" over the current BA Forum Logo which looks to have "BA" added to the image.

    I agree the little icon needs to be changed... the current squished "BA" + swoosh doesn't look good

    Thanks all for the great suggestion. We've been focused on the Beta Feedback forum, so I only now saw this. I'll add it to the list.

    2nd or 4th one for me. Besides, a speedmarque is a lovely image as it is.

    Alternately, a tailfin could be nice...

    Number four, because British Airways | Executive Club is printed in a large font nearby.

    We definitely need an improvement to the current icon. I'd be quite happy with any of the 4 suggested, but one wih "British Airways" would probably be better. Who knows, it might even encourage people not to abbreviate to "British" or, worse "British Air".

    I think this picture of a young Pucci Galore should be the forum icon. This is more of a horizontal stacked format.
     
  23. Picture of a Concorde tail with the current livery?

    PG does look very smart in that white jacket and bow tie.

    Back to the question....Number 1 for me.
    I like the blue background...more striking I would say.
