Libertarian Futurist Society unveils new logo

The Libertarian Futurist Society has a vivid new logo.

Actually, we now have an attractive suite of logos.

Let us know what you think of the new logo, which is available in four versions for official LFS usage.

Two of the new logos are designed in a square format, one with our website highlighted (above) and the other without.

Both of the “square” LFS logos above can be used on the Prometheus Blog, on LFS news releases, display ads and stationery.

The goal of the LFS logo with the website is to be used, with advance permission, on news articles announcing Prometheus awards finalists and winners – and as authorized, by Prometheus-winning authors and publishers, posting the news and related articles on their own blogs and websites. Details about
acceptable use and acquiring permission will be shared in the coming
months.

Meanwhile, two related logos are designed for LFS stationery, banners and horizontal ads:

 

Last year, the LFS board formed an ad hoc “Logo Committee,” chaired by Charlie Morrison, with Steve Gaalema and Michael Grossberg as committee members, to create the first official logos for our non-profit organization of freedom-loving science fiction and fantasy fans.

The committee worked over several months with Colorado designer Tyler Ericsson, suggested by Gaalema, to guide the development of various images into proper LFS logos that could work both online and in print to serve various purposes for the organization.

The board approved the final logo images during its January 2024 meeting, and is developing policy guidelines for appropriate and limited use by outside parties (such as Prometheus-winning authors and publishers or recognized sf media, in conjunction with posting news of our awards on their websites).
