I think we've narrowed down the choices to the following two designs.

CUP
This one features an iPhone that also doubles as a coffee cup. It sits within a chat bubble.



Home

This is a play on the 'home' button that sits within a chat bubble. The thinking being everythingiCafe is home to iPhone discussion.



Honestly, I like both. I was originally partial to the 'Cup' design. Upon seeing the feedback, I found myself starting to like the 'Home' design. I'm torn between the two.

Please take the poll and offer any comments you might have regarding the above.

Thanks!

I would be happy with either one. I like the home button for its simplistic and basic design.

I voted home button, but I would not be disappointed either way.

I agree with london. On a dark background I like everythingiCafe in white. On lighter background, I like the purple/black

I never understood why "Cafe" was at the end?

Chris you better start making iPhone shaped scones.

The phone graphic, while I understand the perspective thing, just doesn't scream iPhone to me. The home icon carries much more meaning and is just simpler and easier to use in other graphic elements. I vote #4.

I like the home button idea. The first one with the phone looks good, but the phone is too scrunched that it looks more like a Palm device. :046:thumbs_down

I don't like the whole purple/white text, it just looks too funky to me. I go for all white.

Home. Simple, sleek, fits great with the eiC font. The only thing I'd be worried about is possible trademark issues with the rounded square, but I'm sure graphic pros are used to dealing with that.

They both look good, I liked the cup a little more, maybe it's a girl thing.

Home;

My reasons are, that it's simple and looks good.

I do like the cup one, though I just think the coffee mug implied doesn't have much to do with EiC, despite the site's name and even with an iPhone in it. Given that, I think the home one is more representative of what the site is about.

Good point. Why continue down the path of caffeine, when outside of this thread, the site has nothing to do with coffee.

because Apple doesn't like "iPhone" in other sites' URLs.
