I have been attempting to find a logo that can represent the ABDL community that will be adopted by them and accepted. I think I may have found one. A fellow ABDL friend and myself designed a logo that we have presented to quite a few other ABDLs and they love it. They said it is pretty discreet but yet represents and would be recognizable to the adult baby and diaper lover community alike. This is just a sample copy of it below but some feedback would be nice:
As you can see it is like the shape of a flag. It has the typical traditional colors of the adult baby and diaper lover community. It basically translates into “I Love/Heart Diapers” if you couldn’t tell. It has the “I” and then the diaper symbol is also in the shape of a heart. I honestly really like the design and can see it catching on. I can see myself with a sticker or something along those lines or maybe a keychain even. I don’t know – I like it, personally. I think the logo represents the adult baby and diaper lover community accurately for the most part but yet it is discreet enough that a stranger wouldn’t be able to look at it and tell exactly what it means or is.
I know there will be some who do not like it or criticize the attempt to make a symbol for the ABDL community but I think we really need one that people know about and can actually recognize and use. Feedback is welcome and if all goes well then we can take the next steps in spreading it and building its recognition from there.
Where I will agree we need a pride symbol, I’m pretty bummed that most of them out there actually have diapers on them. I mean, yeah, I like diapers, but that doesn’t mean I want a flag with a diaper on it, or even an allusion to diapers. That’s not what AB/DL pride should be about, just showing off our diapers. Other fetish/etc. flags don’t have their fet items posted all over them, and neither should ours. I do agree with the color scheme, pink and light blue are babyish but not over the top, with white being a good diaper symbol in itself. I’ll encourage you to keep working on it though! I would love to have an AB/DL pride pin or something like it.
Love it! x
Don’t know if you knew about this or not but there already is a symbol for the community, although it is a bit more general than ‘just’ AB/DL Pride. Website is below.
🙂 Loving your logo though, keep working on it though. And keep writing, I love your blogs. 😀
I have to agree with Bryan. I like the idea, but just not the symbol.
I think it’s a great first design Adrian. I can see both sides of the argument but what else could we use? Not everyone in the community identifies with AB so something overtly babyish would not be appropriate for all of us. As a DL I wouldn’t identify with a symbol that harkens to babies, beyond the color scheme. I don’t know what there isn’t to like about the design but all logos can be perfected! Keep working on it and, if you want to see what it would look like on something, the keychain perhaps, then hop on over to cafepress.com and see if they can’t help you out.
I always liked the idea of a diaper pin on your keys. If someone asks what it’s for, you can always say it’s an easy way to pin your keys to your clothes.
I think on my site I have the first ABDL pride logo created by Baby Mako. like that one as well as yours but with so many going around its hard to have one universal ABDL symbol. Wish we could but that would probably take ABDLs getting a flag made and going public with it a fetish ball or gay pride event.
I really like the symbol to most people it would just look like a heart but to us ABDL’s we know exactly what it is and the colours are great to….If this symbol does go ahead what sort of stuff would it be put on?
A while back someone came up with a design with a circle that was half blue and have pink. In the middle was a heart with a white diaper around it. It was being floated around for the longest time. I like your design though, its very playful and cuter then the old adult baby pride symbol.
I love it Adrian; it’s very creative and manages to convey different ideas at once. Kind of like the two faces or one vase image that is both at the same time. How about having just one tape outline on the heart/diaper, and then it would more resemble a baby diaper to those of us who love diapers, while possibly looking more like a stylish heart to others? The hard thing is to make it clear to those in the know what it is, while keeping it stealthy to others.
That’s a wonderful ‘modern’ design. I would really like to see a very popular recognition symbol for the community. Yes, keychains, stickers, maybe daily planner notebooks, would all be proper targets. Maybe pens for the office or in the work truck! So far I have been doing the diaper pin on the keyring thing, but a logo would be really cool. Oh yeah, Adrian- that is the cutest casual/sporty skirt I have ever scene! Peter is right about guys and cute schoolgirls- we all knew one somewhere along the line. Try modelling one of those outfits and Let The Diapers Be Seen!
In my humble opinion the problem with all of these OFFICIAL POSSIBLE logos is that they are all portraying a diaper on them. I think in order for an OFFICIAL symbol to be adapted it needs to say it without saying it. For all those that want this to remain anonymous etc. I.E. why not just a circle with half pink half blue? I think something less focused and more generalized can be more widely accepted and i know for a while folks can wear a pink or yellow safety pin and that would symbolize AB or a DL. Not a bad thought for those that wanted to show it without showing it. Just my humble opinion.
The link to Mako’s pride pin website is up above so I won’t double link it, but he’s been working pretty hard to spread that symbol. I like that one quite a bit – it’s discreet, minimalist and takes in to account the history of kinky flagging that’s been going on for ages. As well, the fact that it’s a little less specific to diaper fetishists and takes in to account ageplayers of all types. I talked with Mako recently about it and his explanation of the piece is very comprehensive.
Other relatively discrete ways of flagging include baby keys hanging from a back pocket and in the tradition of hanky codes, hunter green hankerchiefs (right pocket for littles, left pocket for bigs)
I like the logo, Adrian, I’m just not too crazy about the colors. I can see having it made into a keychain if the colors could be customized.
I like this one it seems neat. 🙂
Oh well, you can’t please everyone. I really like your design. I love the colours and the gentle curves the subtle diaper shape and the heart shape. If the tapes were removed from the design I think it would make those who feel it is too revealing would be happy. I would feel a little more comfortable without the tapes but I would use it either way. How and when can we start using it? Diaper pins are good way in the meantime. I like to use one on my pack that is close to the same colour.
I think that the symbol is needed, defiantly… BUT, it shouldn’t even look like a diaper, we need something the people who aren’t diaper lovers or AB’s can’t tell what it means, but people who are will be able to notice one another. Kind of what the Great Masons were like in the 18th century. IDK, maybe something like a crazy design, but simple enough for all AB/DL’s can recognize one another.
I got this one drafted up. Alot of peeps like it. Will be updating it to the final version when Project: Emergence goes live.
love the symbol i would put that on my t- shirt
Cool I see what you are trying to do with this logo keep up the good work Adian.
Hope you and Peter are doing well just want to acnowledge that to you for respect.
I like it. I agree that maybe only one tape would be good, but overall it’s a good design. I’d use it.
Yeah It’s ok, I think if you got rid of the flag part and just had the semi heart with one tape it would be good. You should post this to all the community sites and pay sites to get a vote going.
I can has key chain? 😀 Lol Seriously though, if this was a key chain I would buy it.
in the old days DPF had a window sign with DPF on it. AB/DLs knew whatv DPF ment but anyone else did not,
if someone ask we could pas DPF off as Dolly Parton Fan.
any AB/DL flag need a cover story.
