Zunerama logo contest
« on: September 08, 2006, 11:27:58 PM »

Folks, we're in need of a fancy schmancy logo for Zunerama.

Oh I know... you like the simplicity, the quiet elegance of our site. You like that we don't have gaudy colors, flashing lights, and animated gifs attacking your senses each time you drop by for a little Zune community.

Our mantra from the start has been that we focus the site on content, and not on cosmetics.

While that is true, it's also reality that we are LAME when it comes to graphics design. We'd rather work on the third draft of a 100-word story about Zune than fiddle with the airbrush tool settings in PhotoShop.

But now, we're firmly entrenched as a top ten Zune site, on all 3 leading site registers... and we're feeling a little uppity. It's time to clean up the front porch a bit and act like we belong in this neighborhood.

Can you help?

We're asking you closet graphic designers to take a shot at designing a Zunerama logo.

Believe me, you can't do any worse than our attempts.

If your logo is selected, you will receive a warm feeling every day, when you see your logo gracing the header of every page on the Zunerama site. The people around you will love you just a little more because of your accomplishment. You can add "Zunerama logo-maker" to your resume. And, we'll send you a collector's-item Zune logo sticker.

(Yes, we're sharing the booty we won by submitting Zune haikus to ZuneInsider.)

We'll accept submissions through Friday September 22, and announce our winner that weekend.

Please post your offerings in this thread. Thanks for helping us. Create away!


>> More details added Sep 10:
- Instructions on adding images to a post are explained in the Forum Support thread.
- Either .jpg or .gif file formats are fine.
- Desired file size is 760 pixels wide, and up to 150 pixels high. Don't sweat that, though - we can adjust.

It's been a while but I'll dust off my PaintShopPro skills and give it a shot.

I presume .jpg or .gif is okay...?

No offense, but the old (present) logo is a tad minimalist. Goes over well if you're colorblind. Smiley

Very cool logo Mr Duke!!

Well after seeing Duke's I almost stopped working on mine, but here it is.

Everybody's Zune site is orange-y and this introduces a little blue.  Smiley

I've got an idea but don't know how to load the graphic up to the forum.

How do I? Do I attach a file to the post somehow? Huh

That's the way I'd recommend too. Don't use your own website host (if you have one), as most of them frown upon external links to graphics on their hosting servers.

I'll add a post to the Forum Support board on the steps involved in adding a photo to a post.

OK kids here's my first entry:



I tried one version that had the word hyphenated but that looked really bad. So here is the unhyphenated version.

Then I figured out I could stretch the player out a bit (okay, a lot)...






Here's another version with drop-shadow font:
