I just want to say that I've shown the logos on this page

to a friend of mine, a very good designer with much experience in  
corporate design.

I asked him, what he thinks and feels, when he sees the logo.

The name "Grok" makes him think of vikings, strong and brute men,  
spontaneously. The name sounds nordic to him. And the club makes the  
impression of bruteness even more stronger.

I asked him, whether it could be the name of a caveman, he said: yes  
of course!

I think this is great. He did not know anything about Grok or Zope  
and understands it all at once.

Then I told him the story behind the logo about Zope 3 and the  
smashing of all tedious things with grok. And he said, jes this  
perfectly fits.

He also likes the design work itself. Maybe it is not all finished,  
but generally it works. Only the very end of the grip could be  
slightly thicker (as baseball bats have). And we should try out other  
colors, to finally find the best solution.

I think that we are on a very good way. What do you think, perhaps we  
only need some more variations (slightly thicker grip end, some more  
paleolithic colors) and we could make a poll about it.
