It seems like it should be fairly easy these days to generate a great new logo without alienating your stakeholders. Here's how I would have done it if I were Mountain Equipment Co-op.
Mountain Equipment Co-op is taking a lot of heat from members over its new logo. They could have avoided this rather easily. First, some background. MEC is a Vancouver-born co-op that sells outdoor clothing and gear. They’ve been around since

You see a great Vancouver fog pic every once in a while, but this is probably the best I've seen. Actually, this entire thread on Quora is full of great photos, because the question posed was, "What is the most amazing photo you have ever taken?"

I take a look through the Canucks lens at Nate Silver's fascinating post today about why Canada hasn't won a Stanley Cup in 20 years. #hockey   #nhl   #nhlplayoffs   #nhlplayoffs2013   #canucks   #natesilver   #statistics

Unfortunate break-in after a woman announced on Facebook the whole family was heading down to Vancouver for the Canucks game.
A Kamloops, B.C., woman is warning people about sharing too much information on Facebook, after she posted plans to leave town and thieves cleaned out her family's home.

This story has been gobbling up traffic on our site since before noon. One of the many screenplays I conceived but never wrote was about something like this.

Interesting story here that describes just how much a long trip to space has messed up Hadfield's body. #space  
He saw space and Earth as if they were brand-new and shared his experience aboard the ISS with millions
