    Right, i have a simple question.

    I'm making a logo for someone but i'm having trouble deciding on the best position of the word "the" so i've thrown a couple of jpegs together to see what people think.

    Where should the, "the" go?

    I can't make up my mind between 1 and 3...DEFINITELY NOT 4!

    Nice logos...

    #4. All words should be treated with respect and equality.

    Ok just kidding. #3 looks the best.

    Number four for me - or ditch the 'the' altogether

    1. The positioning is more unexpected, it's eyecatching and grabbed me immediately.

    3 may look nice, but it doesn't do anything for me.

    Time for a moderator to chime in...

    At first glance, #1 appealed most to me. #3 is also very nice. I don't like #2 or #4 very much at all in comparison.

    Time for a macrumors 601 to chime in... ;)

    I prefer #1.

    #2, IMO, is just that.

    #3 is alright, but not as catchy as #1.

    #4 is just two times #2.

    But why are they all black?

    Because they're mock ups.

    I think 1 is winning, i shoulda made a poll.

    Sorry, I was being flippant.

    Unless there's a tie, I'm sure one is winning. ;)

    I believe you still can make a poll if you edit the OP.

    #1... with a larger "The", large enough to make it to the dot on the i in Big.
