List of How-To Geek Themed Logos
For each of the last few major holidays I've tried to create a new themed logo for the site, to just try and have a little fun. This page will contain a list of all the different ones that we've used.
Mother's Day 2009
Scott reminded me about 20 minutes before midnight... had to rush to get this one done, but I think it turned out well!
Earth Day 2009
I totally forgot to put up a logo until later in the day when I was at work, so I couldn't draw anything. Doh!
This one was meant to be a joke, having the geek character dressed as Elmer Fudd.
April Fool's Day 2009
This one was fun - we also had a fake article: How to grow prize-winning green beans.
Valentines Day 2009
One of my better geek-related drawings so far, and actually accurate too...
New Year's Day 2009
I wasn't terribly proud of this drawing, but it was a rush job.
The holiday logo was pretty simple to draw, so I threw the whole image up there. In response to questions - I actually drew the snow on the letters using my drawing tablet, it's not a filter.
For Thanksgiving the entire site theme was changed, which proved to be a little more difficult but hopefully future themes will start to incorporate the total redesign if I get the time.
Talk Like a Pirate Day
This was the first logo that we switched - and didn't get the greatest feedback on. Some members even thought the site had been hacked. Gotta start a new tradition somewhere, though.
Keyboard Ninja Geek
This logo has only appeared once as the main site logo - but it could only be seen with a special trick.

The Geek Comic
I had originally decided to create a comic strip out of the geek character, but then I realized I really don't have the time for it. I barely have the time to write articles as it is... a comic strip would be impossible at this point. I did manage to create a single instance of it though. (You might notice the girl from this comic was used in the Valentine's logo. There could be a reason for that.)
Geek Logo Origins
I've previously written about where the geek logo came from over here.
