both narrow and wide Oregon shields are alien heads!  :-D

Michael Summa once sent me this excellent mockup of what the black square abstracted Oregon shield should've looked like.



now that is an attractive sign, and it allows for the exact same size of numerals as the current design.

to make a 28x24/30x24 or other proportionately wide shield, I'd imagine you'd expand the bottom part while leaving the eagle the same.

I agree, it's pretty cool.  I think the modernists behind the current design would still find it too complicated.  As for me, I'd just as soon see the classic eagle printed on a square sign.

I've often thought I would try to make a wide eagle shield.  Two things have always stopped me: I'm not that good at graphics on computers, and I'm lazy.  The 2nd is also why I've never made a web page out of my photo collection.

I know which shield you're talking about and I think it was gone by May 2008. It was hanging off an overpass.
