Paper gets new logo

100 ordered and on way

The latest logo design

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."

Kids On Their Way to Outweighing Parents

Yes, we know, Americans are fat. However, in 2006 the focus has gone from the entire population to just our kids. In an effort to put the damper on the "epidemic" of childhood obesity, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation managed to convince the country's top three soft drink companies to remove all sweetened drinks--such as Coke, Pepsi and flavored iced teas--from school vending machines and replace them with bottled water, nonfat milk and 100 percent fruit juices. If that weren't enough, the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Health and Human Services jumped in by urging food companies to make products that were more nutritious and to also change the way they market foods targeted toward kids. Lastly, they tried to instate minimum nutrition standards for those foods to ensure kids were getting all the stuff they need.
