Design the new VELOROOMS logo
« on: April 18, 2013, 16:10 »
Fancy yourself as a designer? Want to have your ideas forever remembered on Velorooms?

Now is your chance..

As you will see the site now has a new fresh look, is faster, suited to multiple platforms and is moving forward.

Now we need a new logo to reflect that change and take Velorooms forward.

You dont need to be a designer, if you just have rough drawn ideas, they can then be reproduced professionally into an eye catching graphics..

So lets have your ideas..

Guidelines
:* Artwork can be supplied as finished peices or as rough designs for drawing by a member of the graphic design team
:* Artwork should have a transparent background (png)
:* While colour is ideal, the logo should be able to be displayed on both coloured (tinted) and white or grey backgrounds
:* There needs to be scope for the logo to be re-coloured for key times of the year, Giro, Tour, Vuelta etc
:* Artwork needs to be able to be created in 2 specific sizes for both the header, an icon to use throughout the site (and favicon) and also as a square logo for twittter etc.
:* Professional designers are free to submit designs but be aware this is not a paying job/competition
:* The logo needs to reflect the fact we are a cycling forum and highlight V and R
:* The logo in the future may be used on a t-shirt, cycling jersey or other merchandise

templates of sizes attached

    Is there a deadline? If so, when is it?

    I will certainly do something, based on what I did in April.

    ideally, looking at by the end of the giro, so when we leave the giro theme behind we have a new logo for then..

    larri has something to, but he can hunt it down and find it ;D

    So I was struck by inspiration and knocked this up just now... It's not 100% serious, and would need to be tweaked and tidied up. But anyway... enjoy  :D



    And the Giro Special Edition version...



    ---

    As a serious aside, I'm quite pleased with my little man on a bike thing... I'm happy for that to be used by anyone else :)

    I loved the slogan, too  :D

    But the bike wheels as the OO of "rooms " is a great way of getting the theme into the logo and name.

    Very, very abstract, I have to say.
    It's noticeable when you say so, but I think it may need two big wheels to make it slightly more obvious.
    Otherwise, it looks great.

    Agreed. Or just some spokes in the O's

    Haven't got the time to do it properly right now, so I'll just repost my idea from the other thread:


    Caruut's edit with white background:


    and another edit by Caruut, going uphill:

    I really like that idea, it makes the V and R look normal as opposed to tilted.

    I'll hopefully have some time to work this into a proper draft when I'm back.

    its not terribly modern, it was also in rather strange proportions that didnt make it very helpful to use as a logo. I will myself enter the logo contest with something based on the original vr logo but modernised

    it was described by one as "childlike"

    I liked L'Arri's better.

    A bit of tinkering maybe. It has a nice sense of movement, of speed and grace. What happens if you shorten the first part of the V and lean the characters further to the right?
