We need your input on a very important decision

A forum to discuss Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency and its relationship to Multiple Sclerosis.

Postby Vonna » Mon Mar 01, 2010 3:20 am

Okay, here is a web version of a new design on the shirt.

I would love to design one with each of the slogans, but obviously this it not feasible. If someone wanted to do a vote for the slogan, I would go with which ever slogan won the vote.

It's imperative that we get this going though, the walk in my area is the end of March.

Please offer your opinions and suggestions on this Logo.

Again, I don't want to take over here on which slogan to use. There is just so many to choose from. I will be happy to change anything if the majority agrees.

Thanks so much for everything you have done already!

Algis, thanks, I can fix this.
Been getting very little sleep lately. My husband said I talked in my sleep for the first time ever last night!

He asked me to turn the heater on, and I told him I needed a link!!

Vonna, great job, my pick is #1 sample, having the letters MS together is immediately recognized as multiple sclerosis.

With that frame of thought if its agreed to are you able to change the animated (second link) to this design?

great work

Yes, I can do this bohemianbill.

Changing the spelling right now, these are simple things to do once I get an idea for how people feel about the design.

Very well done! I think having the slogan is a good idea as it should start a conversation when questioned as to what it means. Having hand-outs will be very helpful to give an accurate and consistent response. business card size would be easiest to distribute. Cost effective too and less likely to become a litter issue.
Great work!
A puzzle on the back would get following looks.

Puzzle pieces

Postby Ruthless67 » Mon Mar 01, 2010 10:16 am

Hi Vonna,

I’m not sure how you do your graphics, but in the Sunday, SF Chronicle’s book section the Insight page has a graphic of puzzle pieces with the SF skyline in the back and a few of the puzzle pieces missing at the skyline & above and a few pieces scattered around at the bottom. Would it be of use to you for me to scan it into my computer and send it to you as an jpeg or something?

The results of this logo has been a group effort from everyone. Thank you ALL for your wonderful ideas. And special recognition to Esta for coining the phrase, "No Drain, No Gain".

I have not overlooked all the references to doing something with puzzle pieces. It's just that I can only do one thing at a time... This is a good idea, and I will see what I can do with it. We do need something for the back of the shirt.

bohemianbill has been very good to offer to get a list together of all the tools we need for our "CCSVI Educator Toolchest".

bohemianbill, when you get the list together, can you post it here? This way, others will know what we need and can offer to help. We are well on our way!

Is it possible for someone to research T-shirt suppliers and give information on the subject? It occurred to me that some company(s) may be willing to donate a set amount of shirts to the cause as a tax deduction. I know of a few 501 (c)3 organizations we might be able to work with on this. In other words, the non profit organization would accept the shirts and give the company a charitable donation statement. We have to start using some of our resources in the same way that the societies and pharmaceuticals do! No, I don't want to be like them, but some of their business practices are certainly profitable.

I am excited about moving on and working on the back of the shirt design. Then, the rest of the tools for the tool chest.

If someone could continue to advertise this message to others that may be interested, this would be great!

I am trying to hold back on getting too far along since I want to know if I need to make any other changes to the logo. Would like as many opinions as possible. This logo is gonna get printed millions of times! :D

It would be great for as many people as possible here to take initiative, as several others have already begun to do.

Slogan for CCSVI

Postby seanthecaper » Mon Mar 01, 2010 11:18 am

I am going to mention this T-shirt slogan to the CCSVI in MS for Nova Scotia moderator to see if we could perhaps get some pamphlets done up for the MS Walk.

This was great work done by Vonna with help by others like Esta, Lora, and Bohemianbill. If I missed others, don't take offense.

I don't want to fight with the MSers who believe that the MS Society is doing the right thing when I bring this information to an MS walk. I just want to educate MSers and their loved ones to make them realize that they have a right to be tested for CCSVI. Suppression of the right to be tested through MS Societies, governments, and pharmaceutical companies is not ethical.

Thank you very much for your efforts sean.

Okay, below are the links to two more logo proposals.
The first is proposed for the front of the shirt.
It is only changed up slightly from what was previously posted, to better match the back of the shirt.

<shortened url>

Next is the proposal for the back of the shirt. Some of you will notice right away that there are no puzzle pieces. I really really like this idea, but felt the shirt was getting too "busy". Our goal is to convey one single message loud and clear. With this said, I hope to work with "puzzle pieces" in the future on a different project. If you all feel strongly about this, I am willing to start over in order to try to incorporate the puzzle pieces. It depends on how important this is to you all, so let me know.

As stated before, I am eager to get this process rolling so that people can began purchasing shirts. I would love to hear your feedback on these two proposals so that I will know what to do next. After all, we are asking that everyone purchase and wear one if at all possible...

Thank you so much!
