I would have thought that any image can be digitised

I sincerely hope this isn't change for change's sake because I really do prefer the original logo.

My understanding of the requirement for a new logo, and I could be totally/partially wrong is that the existing logo is unsuitable for the smaller screens of smart phones and tablets.  The existing logo is degraded on small screens, whereas the proposed logo appears sharp and defined.  A case of horses for courses.  You can try this yourself on your smart phone, assuming you have one, and compare the two images.

Technology is constantly moving forward, for better or worse, and we have to take into account the medium that Club members (and potential entrants) use to stay in contact with the Club.  Therefore, if we're going to accommodate members with the latest (for the moment) technology, we have to ensure that what we provide is presenting the MCC to our advantage.

The logo has changed over the years; the existing logo is the current incarnation.

The proposed logo may not appeal to everyone, but there are other designs that can be proposed until we find one that does the job and appeals to most of us.  In a few years time, we could be looking at another logo because whatever logo we are using at the time is incompatible with the MCC micro-chip that's planted inside your skull :D.  Technology will have moved on.

My skull is the last place I'd stuff any microchip  ;D

But seriously, if the badge does have to change, is there any reason why the club couldn't put up a few alternatives and just let the membership vote?

You know, a bit like an election...

It's that or the suppository chip :o ; you takes your pick!

I believe it's all on hold for the moment, but no doubt members opinions will be taken into account.

While most modern web site packages automatically adjust screen layouts dependent on viewing device( at a basic level 3 eg: PC,tablet and phone) any decent software package for web site creation will also allow( if its that important) different specific image sizes to be called  for different devices . normally this step is not required but it seems it would be in this case. Perhaps its not the Logo that is behind the times....
