#FollowFriday: Choose the G2 Logo

By: Gini Dietrich | January 13, 2012 |

Many of you know I’m co-authoring a book with Geoff Livingston.

I know, I know. Shocking, isn’t it?

Well Geoff, as it turns out, is waaaaaaaay more creative than I am and he came up with this fabulous idea for our book tour.

I’m not going to tell you what the idea is yet (after all, I need more fodder so I can keep talking about the book), but I will tell you we’re calling it G2.

Get it? Geoff and Gini? G2?

Marketing In the Round with G2.

Kind of catchy, isn’t it?

My point is that we have some logos narrowed down and we want your help choosing the one we’ll use in our marketing, on the website, and during the tour.

So, rather than do a person for today’s #FollowFriday, we’d like to invite you to vote on our logo!

I’ve pulled them all together below so you can see them at once, but you have to click here to vote.

Need a Logo Design? Try 99designs

We’ll close voting this weekend so get over there and vote. The one with the highest number of votes will be the winner. And don’t you want to see us this summer, during our book tour, knowing you helped us choose our logo?

I know you do!

You can also have your say in the comments below, but I can’t vote for you. I know, I live in Chicago. Vote early, vote often. But 99 Designs has it shut down so I can’t vote often.

So get over there. Vote! And then you can come back here and tell me what you think.

Please and thank you.

  • jenniferwindrum

    Voted @ginidietrich and geoff livingston So, now this means you HAVE to come to Omaha for part of your tour. Ha!

    • ginidietrich

      @jenniferwindrum Uh…or you could meet us in Kansas City?

      • jenniferwindrum

        @ginidietrich Umm….I could. But, KC is so…well, 2011. Omaha is THE place for 2012. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • ginidietrich

          @jenniferwindrum Fine. But we’re having dinner in the Old Market. And not at Spaghetti Factory.

        • jenniferwindrum

          @ginidietrich OMG….the Spaghetti Factory is STILL there? Shame-ola.

        • ginidietrich

          @jenniferwindrum Oh yes. It is. That’s where I met Robert Redford. And also where Robert Redford bought me a drink. Did I mention I met Robert Redford?

        • jenniferwindrum

          @ginidietrich What?? Ummm…no, you didn’t mention this very important info. I need details, girl….when you have time. Lucky, gal you are. Of course, I do have to let you know Redford met with you AFTER he and I dined at the Indian Oven.

        • ginidietrich

          @jenniferwindrum LMAO!!

  • MSchechter

    I’m sorry, I don’t get the whole G2 thing… OOOOOH, wait, I see what you did there. Off to vote! NYC or you’re both dead to me.

    • ginidietrich

      @MSchechter Ba da dum. OF COURSE NYC is on our list. I think we’re there first.

      • geoffliving

        @ginidietrich@MSchechter And Michael can help! See, aren’t you glad you visited?

        • MSchechter

          @geoffliving@ginidietrich Happy to help!

  • Am I the only one who sees the heart and thus made it #1 vs #4 by others? Who else has the visual acuity to catch that, like the FedEx arrow?

    • ginidietrich

      @Soulati | PR Shhhhh! Don’t give secrets away yet!

      • @ginidietrich OOPs. But do you see the heart???? Work with me here. Party on, Garth.

        • ginidietrich

          @Soulati | PR Party on, Wayne.

        • Dude. @ginidietrich you didn’t see the heart; b/c I’m wearing it on my sleeve

        • geoffliving

          @Soulati | PR@ginidietrich I see it. Can’t do it. I lose man points. Whaddya say @ginidietrich? Put the kaibash on it? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • @Soulati | PR I didn’t see a heart, and I looked for it. I really, really looked for it. Then again, note my comment on this post…

      • I will help you, I really, really will. @NEMultimedia

    • @Soulati | PR Visual acuity- I like that expression.

      • And how the heck are you adding a Comment Luv to LiveFyre when no one else is? Oh, you’re da bomb, but did you see the heart? @TheJackB

        • ginidietrich

          @Soulati | PR It’s in your settings, you goof.

    • geoffliving

      @Soulati | PR Ewww, we need to disqualify that one.

    • JoyFull_deb

      @Soulati | PR I saw it….sweet ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Kintronics

    @TheSalesLion @ginidietrich Glad to! http://t.co/kcVh9RTh

    • ginidietrich

      @Kintronics Thank you!

  • ginidietrich

    @TheSalesLion Did you vote??

    • TheSalesLion

      @ginidietrich I did…mine came in second place…I can’t believe so many people had chosen the wrong one!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • MSchechter

        @thesaleslion @ginidietrich If by wrong, you mean the worse one, I totally agree (love that my pick is going to be the winner ๐Ÿ™‚ )

        • TheSalesLion

          @MSchechter @ginidietrich Well, the thing is, my voted counted at 15 total points. Yours was a -5points Michael. Dang dude, that’s rough.

        • MSchechter

          @thesaleslion @ginidietrich Even with the Lion Bump and the Schechter Dip, I shall prevail ๐Ÿ™‚

        • TheSalesLion

          @MSchechter @ginidietrich Oh, and lest we not forget my Klout score, which we all know is the only true success indicator in life. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Bellagcg

          @TheSalesLion Psychics help you get rid of your past life! http://t.co/ZsrtJZSl

        • MSchechter

          @thesaleslion @ginidietrich The love of family and passion for ones work are highly overrated by comparison.

        • TheSalesLion

          @MSchechter @ginidietrich Well said, that shall be the theme of my sermon in church this Sunday I do believe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • MSchechter

          @thesaleslion @ginidietrich I cant help but wonder about the “church to people who know what klout is” ratio

        • TheSalesLion

          @MSchechter Hahahaha, love it bud.

        • ginidietrich

          @TheSalesLion Marcus, you’re not supposed to tell @MSchechter we do that to his votes. Jeez.

        • MSchechter

          @ginidietrich @TheSalesLion It’s cool, I figured as much anyhow…

      • ginidietrich

        @TheSalesLion Clearly we’ll have to fix the voting then

  • I voted! Surprised to see I’m on the “winning” team so far when it comes to which of the logos is garnering the most votes, though. In my living room window, I have one out of four curtain panels hanging upside down. Never noticed it until a friend politely pointed it out — after a year. Let that be a warning to you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • ginidietrich

      @NEMultimedia OMG!! LOL!! Perhaps we should remove your vote?

  • I voted! Good options. I chose the one with the red circle. Now I’m in the mood to vote for more stuff. Maybe I should fly to South Carolina and vote for Colbert.

    • geoffliving

      @Marc_Luber LOL, I like that idea!

      • ginidietrich

        @geoffliving@Marc_Luber I like that idea, too!

  • Love love love the one in the circle. Circles are definitely in and I’m currently obsessed with them. Actually just shared this article the other day…check it out http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/galleries/design-trend-circles/

    • ginidietrich

      @rachaelseda (that’s my favorite, too)

  • JoyFull_deb

    I voted for the #1 pick thus far…..I really love the circles with black/red & red/white…clean & smart. Marketing in the Round is just plain #awesomesauce.

    • ginidietrich

      @JoyFull_deb You’re just plain #awesomesauce.

  • ginidietrich

    @John_Trader1 LOL! Now that’s a great tweet!

    • John_Trader1

      @ginidietrich You’re the best. Thanks again for the opportunity this week. (cc @lisagerber)

      • ginidietrich

        @John_Trader1 We might let you come back

    • John_Trader1

      @ginidietrich Oh, and next time @kenmueller pulls any funny business on your blog comments, send him this – http://t.co/uAZjXDWn

        • theshepTSG

          @ginidietrich – Not at all, I can’t believe he got past the Steelers

        • theshepTSG

          @mikefjean – haha! Yup.

        • ginidietrich

          @ginidietrich Ohhh Gini, yes you do! I will ping you during the game ๐Ÿ˜‰ #patriots

        • ginidietrich

          @abarcelos Please let them beat the Broncos. Please let them beat the Broncos. Please let them beat the Broncos. Please let them beat the Br

        • abarcelos

          @ginidietrich Well Gini, I’m hoping the Pats win, but we’re dealing with other forces here. We shall see.

        • ginidietrich

          @abarcelos Pats win! Pats win! Pats win!

        • jeffespo

          @ginidietrich have you changed team affiliations?

        • ginidietrich

          @jeffespo I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but my team didn’t make the playoffs. I have to cheer for someone.

        • jeffespo

          @ginidietrich and you picked the butt-chin? Well we will not be friends for a week

        • ginidietrich

          @jeffespo I actually wanted the Saints to win, but the Pats are my second choice

        • jeffespo

          @ginidietrich again we are not friends for a week

        • John_Trader1

          @ginidietrich I noticed a typo on your last tweet. Think you meant to type R-A-V-E-N-S instead of P-A-T-S. I forgive you.

        • ginidietrich

          @John_Trader1 Booo! No!

        • ginidietrich

          @jeffespo Fine. FINE

        • John_Trader1

          @ginidietrich Trust me, going to NE and facing Tom Brady is not the card we were hoping to draw. Gotta root for the underdog GD!

        • jeffespo

          @ginidietrich I still love you and all, but just saying

        • abarcelos

          @ginidietrich Yayyy!! What an awesome game. Brady even set a record.

        • ginidietrich

          @John_Trader1 I cheer for the underdog all season. I’m a Bears fan. I want to cheer for a team that wono

        • ginidietrich

          @John_Trader1 Oops. Won’t give me a heart attack.

        • ginidietrich

          @abarcelos And he’s cute

  • I voted. I haven’t told you lately that I love you Gini. And just as soon as I get this through this to-do list…

    • ginidietrich

      @Tinu Only because I love you is it OK that you haven’t submitted your guest post yet.

    • Hey, Tinu…don’t do it…you write and write and @lisagerber puts them in a black hole. @Tinu

      • ginidietrich

        @Soulati | PR@lisagerber@Tinu I’m pretty sure it’s not a black hole, but only a very full editorial calendar. Unless you’re talking about Spin Sucks Pro. In, which case, it’s all ready…as soon as the ecommerce is working.

  • Joel Fortner

    I have! My fave is apparently most voters’ fave. Look forward to the tour!
