is there anything specific you want from the logo?

like a certain background color? a certain image or theme to be incoporated? colors?

edit: added logo. i dont know if you would consider this one 'nice' but it kept me busy for a little while...enjoy!

Both of those look great, I'll add them to the contest page so that everyone can see them.

As for your question about anything specific I would rather see ideas without any guidance as they would be better looking then if I gave you specific guidelines besides the ones I already did. Just have fun with it.

Good luck

That is a good point. The file format could be .gif, jpg etc just as long as I can view it. The problem was that when I had origionaly run this contest, I was getting Paintshop and photoshop and Illustrator formated pictures and I dont use photoshop or Illustrator.

So Ill correct that on my site and allow for standard format pictures. The size however has to stay since it limits the file size and will already be the correct size for video output.

Thanks for the submissions, so far they have been great:)

yeah, the one i submitted doesnt look all that great on the page either, i am assuming that those are just thumbnails and he will resize whichever he chooses so that it displays correctly...ie, maybe not display it full screen(4:3) on video.

The images are displayed on my page in a 4x3 ratio so as to keep the page uniform. It would be best to keep all submissions at 640x480, however with submissions, like the ones I have recieved, that are smaller, they can be fixed via a black background at 640x480. So if you want to fix it up thats cool, but not necessary. So far I have really liked the ones that I have recieved.

If you have any more questions please contact me via

All the logos look great so far. We have had a few people vote on the logos. Keep sending them. If anyone would like to we are now accepting animations as well, as we will need one for the intro to our films.

A small, jerky, and BADLY compressed clip. (2.6MB)

Here

The gist of it I think comes through though, one could always
render it more high res with better DivX compression. ;)

Looks like a lot of you like to use Photoshop to do your logos.

I'm not sure how many of you are studying art in school, but what I've learned about doing logos, is that they should work in color, and plain black and white ( no gradients )

Also they should be legiable when sized down to fit on a business card.

When I get home I'll consider doing a logo, usually logos take a while, thumbnails, roughs, etc take a long time. :)

Bromide, What program do you use to make the effect you had in your video. I would like to use that.

As for the video format, any generic format will do except real player because real player is a real pain to conver to anything.

So, mpg, avi, mov, swf <although if you could convert the swf to an avi It would be appreciated> are all acceptable.

What we have decided on doing here at Archon films is to do another contest once this one is over for an opening video. So keep up the good work on the logos.

I fail to see the difference between the two.

Even according to your "urbandictionary.com" link, you're still calling the person gay, or having latent homosexual tendencies.

Even though urbandictionary.com is a joke since people make up whatever word and definition they feel like using.

yes, i realize people can make up definitions...however, if you look at the actual definition that i also posted, you will see that the actual definition has no 'gay' connotations whatsoever. infact, the only place where it has any homosexual reference on that page it reads in big letters above it 'slang'. i am sorry that your mind is set on homophobic, and i refuse to let you carry on destroying this thread anymore, so if you continue to reply i will cease to do so. i know what i meant, and i know that any person with some sense will realize that as well, which is more than enough for me.

kthxbye
:rolleyes:
