The Greatest Truth Never Told Logo

So I was messing around with an idea for a logo for The Greatest Truth Never Told and I came up with this.

I think the idea of the Trivium freeing your mind and the Constitution freeing a society is very powerful.

While that is a part of the project it is really going to be divided into the 5 Stages of the Awakening; Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. I think I will have to work on something that brings that element into the logo.

The project is coming along nicely and I am about half way done with the Denial section. The sound is great after many suggestions to improve the sound. The content is second to none. The visual elements are definitely going to be fun to do. This will be my last best attempt at this on my own. I hope when this is done I could maybe get some professional help to make this into even a bigger project.

    Looks good. A few notes:

    1. A logo should be easy to reproduce. It should be simple and attractive. It’s hard to reproduce all words in the current logo.
    2. A logo should be reproducible at different sizes with no loss of integrity. If current logo is reduced in size, words will be lost or will turn the whole image into a grayscale mess.
    3. A logo should have one layer. Text can be above, below, beside, but no directly over the graphic element.
    4. Text in the logo should be readable, no matter how the logo is resized. Artistic font of the text part will be distorted at small size, especially if you ever need to print it in physical world.

    With the above in mind, a few other variants may be worth your consideration:
    – no tiny grey words inside the graphic
    – clearer font for the main black text
    – main black text moved around so as not to obscure the graphic

    Personal note:

    The graphic part sends me a message of something esoteric and Aleister Crowley-ish. It looks very cool, no doubt, but does it suit the message / spirit / purpose of the organization?

    No; Chris
    Your logo idea incorporates the 666 conceit used by Marilyn Ferguson on cover of ‘The Aquarian Conspiracy’.
    If you need a good idea, let me know.

  • Gareth

    I think it looks good, but as you’re fully aware, Chris, aesthetics really isn’t my strong point :-)

  • Rick

    It’s cool but people will say you ripped off Led Zep.

    • Silver Shield

      John Paul Jones’ symbol (circle over three interlocking ovals) was found in a book of runes and purportedly represents a person who is both confident and competent.

      Led Zeppelin is my favorite all time band and I like the meaning behind that symbol.

    Not to be an empty bitter critic, I drew a sketch:

    It’s quick, dynamic; it’s about insight, light, energy, speed of thought; easy to read, easy to clone. A bit too simple, but it’s a sketch, not a sale :)

  • Andy in the UK

    No, don’t like the logo. Its a bit ‘secret society’ or even ‘mystic’ for my liking.

    My suggestion would be to meet with at least 2 or 3 professional graphic-designers (on separate occasions) and / or artists and thrash something out between yourselves – incorporating and developing the best ideas and throwing out the bad.

    You could even hold a competition for entries (perhaps even at Colleges, in addition to this site – students love getting involved in this sort of thing as its great commercial experience, looks good in thier portfolio, and it would help spread the message too).

    Good luck to you whatever you decide, but please bin the current design, it really won’t do you any favours.

    That is the problem with symbolism, any one can interpret it any way they want.

    Everything I have done is the opposite of “secret” or “mystic”, so how do you make a symbol around that?

    Probably no symbol at all… :)

    I have already had one fellow volunteer his time as a professional designer, hopefully more will follow.

    Everything I have done is the opposite of “secret” or “mystic”, , so how do you make a symbol around that? A lighthouse or a torch would be OK, but they have been usurped by Enlighteners starting with Lucifer and Prometheus. Problem with them is they are both made by men to lead men who knows where.

    Maybe something about shield and bullet (arrow)?

    Then again, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon and Canon agree that no graphic symbol is a viable option too.

    Oops, forgot to close the blockquote, sorry.

  • I agree, the first thing that came into my mind concerning the logo was the occult.

    However, I do like the terminology.

    Tough thing, designing a logo, that is…

  • Ben

    Wait, wait, wait a MINUTE! Is that the dreaded triangular pyramidal shape with the all seeing eye at the top!

    Just kidding.

    It’s actually a triquetra, an ancient symbol for the Trinity. It comprises three interwoven arcs, distinct yet equal and inseparable, symbolizing that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who are three distinct yet equal persons and indivisibly One God. It’s Latin for 3 sides or 3 corners.

    I like it. It does have a bit of a Celtic flair to it though. Look up the symbol for the Celtic Sun God Lugh. You might find something interesting.

    I would agree, it’s hard to find a design that everyone would like….or one that people won’t “read into” when they look at it.

    Perhaps you should have a contest?

  • George

    I personally like what you have shown us here; the celtic design and the trivium as well as the unalienable rights of man but ultimately this project is yours and being your gift to the world should bear the look and feel that you desire it to. Maybe a contest could give you something more eye catching and unique but to ALSO say as much as yours does?…I don’t know. I’m a simpleton trying to learn something from you but I can tell you what Rick Nelson said: “You can’t please everyone, so you got to please yourself.”

    I think the logo is terrific on several fronts; any likeness to occult or religious symbols is fine – in fact – USEFUL:

    1) Humans tend to FEAR the things they do not understand. Throughout history, mankind has feared God, feared Nature, feared Darkness, feared Death, etc.

    2) Fear is a powerful motivating tool used by the elite to manage and manipulate the sheeple. For example, Americans have given up their civil liberties & are submitting to pat-downs, warrantless searches, body scans, etc because of the fear of terrorism. The elite could NEVER get away with this without the use of Fear to get the people to “freely” give up their Liberties in exchange for “security”.

    3) By adopting a logo with the likeness of those occult and religious images, WE TAKE THE FEAR OUT of these symbols and instead USE it to represent Truth, Liberty and Freedom. We stop enabling the elite to manipulate us with these symbols. Instead, we are empowered by them. For example, if you had a fear of knives as a result of being a victim of assault by someone with a knife, you might experience Fear anytime you saw a knife, or encountered anyone holding a knife – regardless of whether you were being threatened or not. However, if you learned how to DEFEND yourself USING the knife, the knife would NO LONGER HOLD ANY THREAT. In fact, the knife could become a symbol of STRENGTH – indeed, salvation – once you have the skills to USE IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. Symbols are no different. As children, we learn to engage and conquer our fears through play. As adults, we need to engage and conquer our fears through understanding.

    The cornerstone of the DTOM approach is to question all. We are encouraged to question the things we fear and do not understand, in order to receive enlightenment, to discover the Truth and TO LOSE OUR FEAR. If the trivium logo involks a sense of Fear or mystery, then I assert that the logo is DOING IT’S JOB. How apropo that to understand the logo you first have to look at all of the symbols and gain an understanding of them, thereby LOSING THE FEAR.

    I find it curious that most of the comments on this site so far have been negative regarding the logo. I am questioning the negative comments in order to open up a better dialog regarding the symbology, in hopes that a greater understanding can be had by all.

    FWIW, the logo is off to a great start.

    Well Silver Shield, how about a SILVER SHIELD logo? Or perhaps a silver force-field logo? KISS.

    You have to be careful with symbols/logo — the word logo is obviously close to the Gnostic logos (do a google search if interested) and the word logic, and the subconscious uses symbols as a language — at least TPTB are obsessed with symbols.

    My intuition is for a circle with a 2-line (thick or double) cross at 45 degree angles. No dots, no words.

  • kumanari

    use what YOU feel is best.Most symbols have been used by good/bad/ugly through out history you can’t escape it. Most folks “in the choir” are theorist of one sort or another, you will get now here by “committee”. You made it this far on your own keep on keeping on.
