Coupla ideas: (Hope more than one is ok)

-Propel your ideas from concept to reality. [with the Parallax Propeller]

-Realize ideas into action with the Parallax Propeller. --Conceptualize, Fantasize, Realize.

-Make it happen today, [your way, on your time] with the Parallax Propeller. It just works.

-With the Parallax Propeller, you get more out of it than you put in.

-It just makes [too much] sense.

-No Limits, no barriers, no holds barred. Realize your designs better, faster, cheaper than you thought possible, with the Parallax Propeller.

-Parallax: working hard to make high component count, a thing of the past.

-Yes, it's possible to love a CPU again.

-Trust us, it rocks!

-Hoping you are as excited as we are!

-For those in the know, it's the only way to go.

-With a Propeller, your ideas are an open book. Realize your designs, better faster, cheaper today.

Your design secret.

Get an edge you deserve.

The micro that feels like a mini! (corners just as well too!)

Digital glue: fast, easy to apply, and fun!

The micro controller of choice for mere mortals and gods alike!

Reach for the Propeller first.

Soon to be your first choice.

It slices, it dices, and never gets dull! (ok, it's funny. Laugh!)

All the power, none of the hassles, the right price.

The only thing it doesn't do is glow in the dark. (yet)

A design experience you won't forget.

The choice you wish you had yesterday, and the one look forward to in the future.

Being different does have it's advantages.

Why go old school?

Your differentiator.

The Parallax Propeller: It's catching on.

Parallax: Redefining the world of micros.

There are only two words for spare time: Parallax Propeller.

Doing new things (we didn't even think of!) every day.

Get in the drivers seat and stay there with the Propeller.

The Parallax Propeller, "Good Call"

Some technology makes you want to go to work... Pick up a Propeller micro controller and you won't want to go home!

Some technology makes you want to go to work... Work with the Parallax Propeller and you won't want to go home!

A lot of technology makes you look forward to work... with the Parallax Propeller, you won't want to go home!

Fighting complexity, one chip, one designer at a time. (It's taking longer than we thought!)

Parallax and the Propeller: We are here to help!

Getting there is where the fun is.

"Come work at Parallax and let your customers do all the marketing for you!" :))

"The Parallax Propeller: Not limited by the speed of sound" - Placed in a RC helicopter magazine

"We've done all the hard work so you can do all the fun work with a Parallax Propeller"

"Microcontroller?!? How would a Propeller do that? Find out now. www.parallax.com/propeller"

"Think of what you have done with a Stamp. Now imagine you had 8. Parallax Propeller"

Picture concept suggestion: You know about dangling the carrot in front of the donkey. The Propeller (or something that obviously represents one) is the carrot, with the donkey representing all the other microcontroller companies out there. (a bit too cocky for the Parallax business model though...)

One full page ad that consists of a list of ideas of things to do with a Propeller (or a whole bunch of pictures in a collage(sp?), nerds like pictures!), and the slogan at the bottom of the page reads: "A small list of the things WE'VE thought of to use a Propeller for... www.parallax.com/propeller"

That's all I got right now.

What other micro can do all of this for the price?

(Show some pictures of the Prop hooked up to some devices, screen shots of video and VGA, maybe show a schematic of all of the above wired to a single Propeller)

Missed the deadline ( 24 hours was a bit short ), but I'd go for a simple -

"Spin on this"

I'm sure an advert with an upraised fore finger and a Propeller Chip balanced on top would attract attention from a great distance. And probably crash cars on a highway billboard.

I'm gratified that so many liked my drawing; but it really was a slogan contest, not a logo contest. Moreover, I really like "the power of eight"! So I've modified my logo in honor of the winning entry. Congratulations, ciw1973!

ciw1973: Thanks for the compliments :), but I think the best one won :)

Phil: Great logo, but, don't take this the wrong way, or offensively, but aren't the flat edge of the blades the cutting edge? and therefore the trailing grey would be on the other side? I know i'm being intensely critical about it, but I can't help it, I guess it's from working with professional CG film artists for the past 5 years, they've ruined everything for me, I can pick up the slightest of inperfections in movies :( specially where the lighting doesn't quite match, it can be the slightest mismatch, and i'll pick it up.
so like I said, don't take it wrong or personally, I think it's a great logo, worthy of being used :) it's just my 2p's worth.

Baggers.

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

People say that if you play Microsoft CD's backwards, you hear satanic things, but that's nothing, because if you play them forwards, they install Windows.

I spent a minute looking at my own code by accident. I was thinking "What the heck is this guy doing?"

Baggers,

After I submitted the original drawing, I thought, as you do, that I had the blades reversed. So I went back to the original photo (http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/santos/demo-02.html) from which the blades were modeled. 'Turns out, they're right the way they are, so I didn't change them.

Craig,

Wow, it'd be pretty tough to squeeze another eight cylinders in there and have it look right! Maybe a V16 instead of a radial?

Phil: Yes, they are the right way, but, it's the grey motion blur bit with the writing, what I was getting at, and if you moved that round to the other side of the blade, it wouldn't look the same, which is why I said to flip the blades, and it'll also be easier to flip just the blades :)

Take a look at the photo. The curved edge is in front and is the leading edge. The prop spins counter-clockwise as you face it.

Jim/Phil,

It's taken from 'Butcher's Hook' which is cockney rhyming slang for 'Look'

So when you are 'Havin' a butcher's' you are looking at it.

Don't you just love cockney rhyming slang, right I'm off for my Frank Skinner (Dinner) lol
