Yesterday I was Googling around the Internet, looking for examples of signs that are unique to Connecticut. You know, something that I could modify to make a logo that indisputably says "Connecticut Bob". Sort of like the famous road sign image on My Left Nutmeg below:
So I came across this lovely image of an original Connecticut Turnpike sign, which longtime Nutmeggers will remember from years gone by:
Which was in use here during the late 1950's until the 1980's, when the last of the highway tolls were removed and the turnpike became a freeway called I-95 and I-395.
I took the image and did some crude photoshopping (actually, it was crude "LViewing", my crappy 16-bit image editor that is much simpler to learn and use) and viola! The trick, she is done!
UPDATE: Commenter John Blossom improved upon my original stolen design, and I edited it slightly more, to get this:
I think the "BOB" needs to be rotated slightly to align it vertically, but I haven't figured out how to do that in PS7. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Who knows? Perhaps I'll set up a "Connecticut Bob" store, and T-shirts, baseball caps, and refrigerator magnets will be available in time for Christmas!
Eh, probably not.
But I still like the new logo.
