Happy #femalefilmmakerfriday to our Femfilmfam! Today we want to take the time to say thanks to everyone who has supported us so far IRL or online. Every little bit helps. Thanks to you, our fam is slowly growing and we couldn't be happier! Which is why we decided to buy the domain name femfilmfans.com and show off our new logos designed by Chicago-based graphic designer D. E. Schultz.
Speaking of logos, we had a tough time deciding which ones to use since they were all so good. For those who weighed in at the polls, we appreciate your feedback. We decided, however, to use the triple f design (see below) and here's why...
1. Our name is Femfilmfans, written as one single word. The version on the left takes this into account. The version of the right has the three words stacked, which we felt did not truly represent our name.
2. Since we wanted to emphasize all three parts of the word Femfilmfans equally, we liked the name-only logo with the fs written in boldface, as shown above. The version on the left has three fs, again emphasizing the three parts of the word, rather than only one in the version on the right.
3. The italicized fs might look familiar to those of you who play or read music. The "fff" dynamic stands for "fortississimo," which means to play very very loudly. The root of this word, "forte," also means strong in Italian. We felt this symbolism best reflected our mission of empowering women in the visual media.
