You are all probably thinking this is an April Fools joke, but I assure you, it is not. After 5 years (and 1 month), TDH is finally rebranding. Since the creation of As You Wish, we have struggled with an identity and logo. When we made the change to The Dented Helmet we found our name but not a logo. For several years we have used the “angels” logo, graciously provided to us by the ever-talented Dustin Crops Boy, but this has always been something of a placeholder and there has never been a true unity between the forum, the logo and our frontpage. The time has come for a change and after a long life, we will be retiring the angels logo and introducing a new TDH logo at C4. The new logo is well under way but has not been finalized at this point. However, the work I have seen so far is very promising and will give us a more professional appearance and unified identity. The new logo is very simple and straightforward, able to make a striking statement without excess glitz and glam. We are painfully aware that no one likes change which is why we have held off on making this move for so long, but hopefully you will give the new look and feel the benefit of the doubt and allow it to grow on you. Those who have seen it so far have quickly grown to love it and I hope all of you will do the same.
So what does this change mean? Nothing in terms of how the board is run or the great people who are its members. We are still as dedicated as ever to providing the BEST Boba and Jango costume information available on the net within a family friendly and cooperative atmosphere. We will simply be operating under a more unified and professional banner.
This of course will bring questions regarding shirts and the coin. Your current TDH shirts are still valid as the angels logo will always be a part of TDH history. We are working with Dustin Crops Boy to have new shirts available for C4. In regard to the coin, we are still working on options and trying to determine whether we still want to offer a limited run of a "vintage" coin with the angels logo, or simply offer a new coin featuring the new logo. Look for posts regarding this in the near future.
With all of this in mind, I have pulled out just a few of the many variations of banner and logo we have gone through in years past, desperately searching for an identity. I hope those of you who have been here from the beginning enjoy this little trip down memory lane and I hope all of you will enjoy the new logo when it is unveiled at C4. Thank you for your continued support of this website. While we hope the new logo adds to our presence, it still is and always will be YOU that makes TDH great.
This is the banner that started it all in 2001 at the As You Wish ezboard.
