We need to take care of the web resources (website, a server/services as and when we decide to have it) and we need people. It would be great if people who cannot dedicate time for offline activities take this up so we can use our time better. Just reply here if you are willing to help out.

@arkarjun , thanks! I like it. Now we have to find a designer. @jacksonisaac , @suneesh , ask around in your circles/college to see if we can find a good designer.

@arkarjun nice designs...

@praveenarimbrathod Why dont we have an 's' in Pirate. I think we should call it as
"Pirates Movement
India"
instead of
"Pirate Movement
India"

PP

Pirate Praveen Sun 15 Dec 2013 11:18AM

@rajudvindane because people usually use just "pirate", like so many "Pirate Parties" around the world.

Pirate Praveen Sun 15 Dec 2013 11:20AM

@rajudvindane do you know anyone who can help us with the front page design?

RD

Raju Devidas Sun 15 Dec 2013 11:28AM

Also I do applaud the artwork done on logo design I have some issues with it.
Our National Flag is supposed to be designed as per the different religions we have in our country & that reflects in the colors of our flag. In my opinion we should not take any elements from our Indian national flag in our logo. And even if we are taking them, we should not highlight any single element of it over the other.
We are not representing any specific sections of our society. We preach Equality of everyone and oppose discrimination of any basis.[ Sect.1 Article 1 of our Constitution]
In short my issues are,
1. Use of blue with the Ashok chakra.

ark Arjun Sun 15 Dec 2013 5:10PM

@rajudvindane thanks for the comment, I am responsible in clearing those points. I do accept your point. Its not Ashok chakra, though its similar in look. Ashok Chakra has 24 spokes and the blue used is different. I intendedly used similar things in order to relate it to India. The chakra style and blue color is not the same (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ashoka_Chakra). I got some suggestion that our logo should not be color dependent. So to relate it to India, i used. And above all the logo is not yet finalised by us :). I am still testing designs.

ark Arjun Sun 15 Dec 2013 5:12PM

@rajudvindane You may please look the first design and It would be great if you give your comments on it.

RD

Raju Devidas Sun 15 Dec 2013 5:24PM

@arkarjun In terms of artwork the second one is way better then the first one. You have clarified the detailing of the second logo, that's good but the problem remains. There are many small and big political parties all over India who use blue in there logos and flags etc. just to tell that they are working for the minorities. Similarly some parties working for Muslims have green in there logos.
Even though your logo is technically different. But looking it from a view of a person whos looking it for the first time without any detailing, will say that "this party represents the minorities".
My only issue is the wheel and color,
I propose a that you should add some other kind of detailing to the circle so it should not look like a chakra at first sight.
&
Shift from blue to any other color.

I applaud your efforts. Thanks for the work you are doing.

@balasankarchelamat can you find a designer? may be someone from your college.

BC

Balasankar C Thu 26 Dec 2013 3:58PM

@praveenarimbrathod Will try..

BTW, I once tried a logo.. Comparing to the one by @arkarjun , it is a joke.. Anyway, just sharing it here. :)

BC

Balasankar C Thu 26 Dec 2013 4:14PM

@arkarjun I already looked..In fact, Hrishi gave me it as a reference.. But, I couldn't get the circle perfectly. So I thought, I will post it just as an idea, which one of you can use efficiently. :)

AA

ark Arjun Thu 26 Dec 2013 4:37PM

@balasankarchelamat We can do something different. I dont want a closing copying, obviously we can adapt not copy.

BC

Balasankar C Thu 26 Dec 2013 4:40PM

@arkarjun Sure. I just tried to imitate an existing logo. It would be better if we have something unique. :)

RD

Raju Devidas Wed 8 Oct 2014 9:38AM

@arkarjun @balasankarchelamat @praveenarimbrathod Can we get someone to work on the logo now. We need to speed up things.

Can we have the design similar to @arkarjun design (The Blue color one) and the color selection similar to the @balasankarchelamat logo ?
