I like it as well, although I think it would look better if the background were transparent rather than white so that the light blue background would show through.
Just a suggestion.

++ simple fix!

How about to grab this JPEG file named "cropped-cropped-Handover-Corner-Of-Berkshire-Fairfax-JPG-e1516151433460" from the site, fix it and send it to Sanjeev for a reinstall on the CoBF webserver installation? [ ; - ) ]

-I have forgotten how to do [read: manipulate] this in i.e. Photoshop, and nobody has asked me to document my investment returns here on CoBF so far, so I've had no need to refresh my memory!

Thanks everyone!  I figured the site isn't going anywhere, and it was time to make it a bit more permanent and recognizable.

John, I can send you the different JPEGS if you know what to do...I'm not particularly tech savvie.  I believe doing a clear version wouldn't be that difficult if you know what you are doing.

Cheers!

Since I suggested it I'd be willing to do it.   I don't have photoshop on the computer I'm on right now so I did this with GIMP (which I'm not all that familiar with).  If you want to email me the files, I'll do it tonight when I get home.  I'll send you an email in case you no longer have my address.

EDIT: deleted file, transparency didn't work. Like I said I'm not too familiar with GIMP.

JPEG doesn't support transparency. You need a PNG or GIF (PNG preferred). The Mac OS's "Preview" app will do all this so I created a transparent PNG from the current JPEG file.

Do you have a photoshop (or GIMP) file with all the layers?

This version is a bit sharper and the gray text is intact.


That one looks pretty good. But as DooDiligence said, it would look best if you started from the original editor file with all of the layers.

There is some likeness between the PDH and the new COBF logo. Just sharing graphics you already had?

Honestly, I thought it was intentionally cheesy or sarcastic.

The graph bars are going up significantly each year.  But a 4 year sample is a pretty short time frame for value investors and we are typically more accepting of volatility.

The plane is flying around the world.  But, that seems to be the antithesis of the frugal, under the radar, sound judgement style of most value investors. Unless that is a dig at Buffett's 'The Indefensible'.

What about a cartoon of Buffett and Prem picking up cigar butts off the street?
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

Each bar represents a decade and the plane represents flying coach.  There, I fixed it. :)

I'm pretty adept with GIMP too (and PNGoo for PNG optimisation) so I'm happy to give it a go with the original graphics if you wish.

Eye of the beholder!  When it was designed, I thought the bars showed incremental growth...no cannabis or bit-coin...nice 12-15% annual returns.  The plane and planet are simply to show that there are investors on here from all over the world, and no matter where you fly, you'll find value investment ideas and value investors.  Cheers!
