Paper gets new logo

100 ordered and on way

The Weekly Alibi has had several logo designs over the years. The weekly alternative paper started off as NuCity before becoming Alibi, which has gone through at least two logo changes.

Circulation Manager Geoff Plant thought it was time for a new one. A rabid music fan, Plant wanted to pay tribute to his all time favorite band: W.A.S.P.

"I just thought, you know, these guys have been a real important part of my life, and I wanted to pay homage to them, especially Blackie Lawless."

Lawless is, of course, the front man for the notoriously offensive W.A.S.P. He could not be reached for comment.

Plant approached Heiko Vick at Bright Ideas, a graphic design firm, and the new logo came to life. A test newspaper box now sits in front of the Alibi offices (413 Central NW). Plant and Art Editor John Bear spent the better part of Thursday imparting the box with its signature John Deere yellow stripes and lightening bolt logo.

"It's metal," Bear said. When asked if he liked W.A.S.P., Bear said "Who?"

Plant said there are plans to make more of the boxes. 100 have been ordered from Newspaper Box Corp. and should be hitting the streets within a few weeks.

"We're excited about this," Plant said. "People should also look out for Stryper boxes, which will also be coming to a street corner soon."
