Roxana, I'm so excited about your leadership of the group. You're really
bringing us into the 21st century. Congrats. It will be so fun to note how
many people have "liked" the page.
As for the logo, please consider starting over. It's graphically messy and
hard to read. Something much simpler and dignified would be helpful. Sorry
for being painfully honest. It's my advertising/marketing background. The
logo communicates the essence of the organization and I'd hate to think
people's opinion would be that the Society is "messy," illegible, complex,
unappealing, as those are too often associated with Pound.
All the best,
