Somewhat nice idea, but may I remind you to obey the branding rules:

sure - that is part of why I placed it up here - do you think it fails?

How could I make it pass - or you just want to see draft 2 and see if it
is closer?

... wrong font (Didn't you mention you used the SVG source of the logo?)
Yup that is it, it is directly from the logo.

... wrong aspect ratio (probably related to the point above)
This is the problem - I didn't take the time to qualify the ratio, just
pulled it out for a basic layout pass.

... bold "Office" part
hmm - yes noticed that, I think the svg file is out of date on
that..isn't it? I figured the one I was using form the wiki currently
was, so didn't really sweat it yet.

... dark background

Yes - it is, but surely we aren't going to pass on all dark backgrounds-
I can use the white out logo but it really doesn't come across as well,
IMO in a big way - still I can put one together and put it up to compare
against. I also have a second background that might work for the event,
it has a better local tie, but the Statue of Liberty (even the iconic
tourist novelty rendition) is a very powerful image for the USA.

Also, I faux lightened the background with a transparency overlay - but
that is a terrible solution I think, so for a next pass would play a bit
with lightning the background image a bit and lose the added layer.

Please have a look at the "Guidelines and Best Practices" areas on the 
wiki page:

I have, and will again. I sure appreciate everyones feed back or if
anyone has some great tip to give given the subject (dark background)
matter I'm really open to hearing it.

As these rules are not carved in stone, they might be adjusted if 
reasonable / necessary.

later then,
