New Bee Docs Logo!

New Bee Docs Logo

Here is the new logo. Designed by Turnstyle in Seattle.

I think they did a brilliant job of capturing the brand characteristics I described last week as well as creating something that is beautiful in its own right. I hope you like it too!

It looks really good Adam - I love the font for the lettering too.

Karen, thanks. The lettering was custom drawn by the Turnstyle designers. I believe they based the letterforms on Gotham by Hoefler & Frere-Jones.

Hi Adam,

Nicely done... do you also have a wide-aspect version (e.g., to replace the existing logo on the BeeDocs Timeline webpage) or is there a full site renovation coming built around the new branding?

(you know, like when you plan to just change one thing in a house, like add a window, and it turns into a down-to-the-studs renovation?) :)

By the way, Timeline 3D was featured on http://www.mactricksandtips.com/ today...

Cheers,
M

M,

There is both a new Bee Docs' Timeline product logo on its way as well as a full site renovation. :)

Thanks for the heads up on Mac Tricks and Tips. Looks like a great review!

Sorry Adam :-(

the font is cool - very now

the logo - well. ok - busy bee and all that but aesthetically flat, drab even - a drop shadow might give it 'lift' and fit better with your 3D slant

Notwithstanding, its the app that's brill :-) - any chance of drop shadows being available for images within events?

Also, is there any advice anywhere as to the mechanics as to how to create a background carrying e.g. a logo

many thanks

Hey Adam,

Nice job with your company. I was requested to submit a sequence of events for the FAA in timeline format but didn't have the s/w. Found you with Google (timeline software). But it was your demo video that sold me. I, too, love Apple; you presentation is Apple-clean, Apple aesthically pleasing and Apple accessible. Timeline is simple to use.

Can't wait to purchase and send it to my iPhone and put it in Keynote. And, I will be emailing the timeline to the FAA today.

Here's to your success!

I love Timeline, and went to the home page to check out 3D; the main page (http://www.beedocuments.com/index.php) says "Full License $40," but the store on plimus.com lists that as the price for the non-3D version. Perhaps you should update the beedocs homepage to reflect which version is being advertised? Consistency in text copy is more important than logos, especially when it comes to pricing.

Hi Adam!

I have been trying to find a timeline software such as this for a long time now, and I'm glad it exists! I am a music historian of sorts, and currently plot out albums I've listened to on paper by year, so that I can get a sense of different music trends.

Unfortunately, I do not own a Mac and I've been trying to find a Windows alternative for quite a while now. I saw a post in your blog indicating that you've been working on a Windows version - is this still in the works?

Keep up the great work!

Marcus -

Thank you for your comments. I am not currently developing a Windows version of Bee Docs' Timeline.
