In a few days I’ll add some more choices, or make another poll.

Nota Bene: This is unofficial, non-binding, and I have no authority whatsoever in the naming of Giggles (a.k.a. The BLF GT).

Edit 1: To reiterate, I am not part of the BLF Team. Also, my Giggles suggestion was mostly tongue-in-cheek.

Edit 2: Poll is now hibernating.

After the giggles wear off of me, I don't want it in giant bold lettering on the light...but that's just me.

I'm cool with something like:

I think the naming should be left to those responsible for the project, after all, it is their baby.

Having said that though, there are far too many serious things in this world, Giggles have their place.

Beam me up!

The next BLF product needs a name that packs power and meaning. Giggles makes it perfectly!

That first logo is exactly what I had in mind.

Can you Photoshop it just below the switch?

If you have a good idea, please post it in the official GT thread or PM one of the team members.

The BLF GT thread has over 8,000 posts, and discusses many BLF GT related topics.

Having a separate thread solely for logo opinions / desires / suggestions may very well make things less complicated and disorganized.

It might Wink .

Problem is that there are now 2 separate discussions.

So either is will be in the GT topic or here but please keep the discussion in 1 place. Thumbs UpBeer

Djozz suggested to do a logo similar to the BLF Q8 logo, but i can’t find the logo anywhere.
There was a poll, but i can’t see which logo was chosen…
Anyone?

I think it is E

By the way, like your bezel printed logo Jerommel, i think it will be even better with the same font as used on the Q8.

I vote for the bunny, text; lumintop BLF GT exactly how you photoshopped it.

I like this. Create consistent BLF logo/branding that goes on all BLF custom lights. I like the Q8 logo.

Re-posted from the original BLF GT thread:

This light was conceived, designed by the Gentlemen in BLF which eventually decided to name it the GT.

The Giggles name does not qualify nor even has any bearing or connection to these Gentlemen’ hard work.

Hence, no other name is more fitting than the “GT”. Some other name might sound exciting, but they will have no historical value at all.

So my vote for BLF GT to be printed. (The design/font to be determined.)

No offense to Lumintop, but for me perhaps they deserve a bunny logo on the GT’s head, that’s all ( as the factory that made the Gentlemen’s concept/design )

All credit must go to where it’s due.

I like the GT letters what DEL wroted on the proto driver board. I like to look at it on the sire smooth areas one or two opposite sides.
