Hi All,

I'm new to the group and have enjoyed reading the discussion surround the tag line for the group.  I thought I'd throw my two cents in:

Innovation Comes Standard.

There's nothing standard about us.

Standards are only the beginning.

Free to innovate.

Design. Develop. Drive forward.

Subject: Re: [webdesign-396] Re: Slogan

I think that since we say "cleveland", "web", and "standards" in the
name, maybe the slogan could reach a bit higher to frame "why" we
think standards are important. If it is only the design of a final
website (code or visuals), then "design" will speak to that. If we
think standards could apply to process and documentation and other
best practices, then we probably should make something more broad-
sounding. Standards create the most freedom for an activity. Without
them, your freedom results in extreme risk and, like an apartment
building in Ankara your design implodes.

Design Through Standards

Freedom Through Standards

Standards For Innovation

Innovation Through Standards

...sounds business-y but I say reach high. Let all other Associations
take notice - there is more to life than SEO and Pay-Per-Click. If
anyone can think of some not-so-corny but more to the point slogans
that would be good. If the CWSA is mainly about XHTML/CSS then these
would not be very appropriate.

I agree that we have too much "deficit marketing" in Cleveland. I
always viewed Cleveland as an amazing, dynamic city with big sports,
good music and art and plenty of good skatespots. Then again - I am
from Toledo. Toledo has great pride - but we do look up to Cleveland
so take that for what it's worth.

Vince
