Back in early April(ish) 2020, the original 3D Crowd logo was born in a blur of the growing pandemic and worsening PPE crisis. It was a time of getting things done, not sweating the small stuff or meetings with marketing agencies. It’s still not, but things have, of course, changed.
We had a huge PPE problem to solve and the amazing 3D Crowd community bloody got on and did it, few cared that we didn’t have an SVG version that we could print.
Of course, as time went on and things started to slow down and the PPC crisis finally started to subside, we started to think about what, if anything came next for 3D Crowd. It was clear that there could be a future for 3D Crowd, a force for good to support a whole range of 3D Printing projects. So a new logo to help us transition to version 2.0 of 3D Crowd was discussed.
Out of the blue, Dani Crebin, a 3D Crowd supporter who created one of our earliest fundraising videos reached out to say that she had some free time and could she help out again. The new logos were born and just as importantly, this one comes with SVG files and is easier to 3D print, either on its own or on a project.
But what about the original logo?
It’s important to 3D Crowd community. It’s part of our DNA and we’ll still be using it respectfully and when in the context of the amazing work done by the community during the pandemic.
