New Logo and Branding

A while ago I had somebody make up a new logo for Must Contain Minis. The logo is pictured above and I am quite happy with the result.

I will also update my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram Accounts, to match the new branding. These updates include a new Avatar, a new Logo and a new Watermark for all work going forward.

Why this Avatar?

Those that know their soldiers and weapons should recognize the new Avatar as a WW2 American Soldier with a Tommy Gun.

Must Contain Minis - MCM Avatar
The new Avatar for Must Contain Minis. A WW2 American Soldier.

Why an American WW2 Soldier? The reason for the American Soldier is because he should be fairly recognizable. He is tossing a grenade and carrying a Thompson gun. Also, most of my readers happen to be American.

On top of the fact that the new avatar is recognizable, I also like that he looks like a toy soldier – the type that all of us played with as kids. Let’s face it, in the end, this is a site about playing games with Toy Soldiers and I think this image conveys that thought quickly.

I thought about going with silhouette of my previous mascots as the new avatar. None of those silhouettes worked well so going with something new just made sense.

Below are images of my previous Avatars.

Bolt Action Captain
This is the most recent picture that I used as Must Contain Minis’ Avatar. Personally I liked that he is taking inventory of what is in the Barrels for a site called “Must Contain Minis.” The Figure is by Warlord Games and the barrels by Six Squared Studios.
Frostgrave Avatar
This figure by North Star Military Figures I also used as an Avatar for the site for a while. I feel he is one of my most well done minis (painted by me) and like to show him off when I can.
Bolt Action Major Avatar
This is the first image that I used as an Avatar for Must Contain Minis. He is yet another miniature by Warlord Games. I really liked that he combined the fantasy element of repelling evil with a cross and real life World War two by carrying an SMG.

Watermark

On top of the new Logo and Avatar, I also have a new Watermark for my photos. I think I am going to go with the one below in all of my photos going forward.

This image is certainly prettier than my original Watermark

What do you think?

So, what do you think of the new branding of the site? Please let me know in the comments below.

 

Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
