Post[COMPLETED] > Design a logo for GRcade's 10th birthday!
by jawafour » Tue Aug 07, 2018 2:04 pm

Your opportunity to design a logo for GRcade's 10th birthday!

Why?
> We are fast approaching the 10th birthday of the mighty GRcade!
> GRcade was born on 15 August 2008 and the first posts were made on 17 August
> From 17 August we plan to use all submitted logos in a fantastic logo cycle! The logo will change each time you refresh the page

How?
"Simply"...
> Build your own celebratory-themed logo
> The image should be 700 pixels wide by 200 pixels high
> Upload the image to an image hosting site
> Copy and paste the image link into a GRcade private message and send it to jawafour
> Do all this by 17:00 (UK) on Tuesday 14 August

I can't do graphics!
> Don't panic! The goal is to create an inventive / funny / memorable logo... not an artistic masterpiece!
> You can use any software you like to create the design; i.e MS Paint, paint.net, Gimp or anything else - even hand-drawn!
> Most image creation software has a "sizing facility" i.e. to convert your image into the required 700x200 pixel size. if you're really unsure, you could use a site such as resizeimage.net to do this. Failing that, give jawafour a shout
> Image upload sites available include imgur, tinypic and postimage
> If you'd like to use Cal's original GRcade logo templates, click here to access them

Note
> You'll already know this, but... please remember that we don't want images that include porn, violence, swearing or anything that would obviously cause offence

I have questions
> Please post in this thread and I'll respond :-)

Thank you. Have fun designing, everybody!

Are we going to use this as an opportunity to move away from the potential copyright infringement of using the space invader/pac-man characters? :shifty:

I'd not thought about that, Frank :o . I guess we will for a while - depending on what folk make!

I know Gecko's bought it up a few times when he's been discussing making goodies to market the forum and potentially sell to spin some profits.

I think the 10th anniversary celebrations could be as good a time as any to try and move away from the space invader and create a *new* brand for the next ten years, but I guess it's up to what people want to design.

I'll try and smash something together in paint for it, too :shifty:

A rebrand is in an ideal world a great idea for a 10th anniversary.. but, without being stubborn, I don't want to rush something like that to meet a date like the planet rotating on its axis ;)

Yes it's something I have a plan and a strategy for and yes it will involve the whole forum :) maybe I can announce it soon at least...

This is a lovely idea, I was gonna post in the other thread so

Marvellous work, SEP - I feel that the design gives a nod to the past whilst simultaneously looking enthusiastically into the future :-).

I just reminded you.

When I say a plan and a strategy, I'm talking 100% in my brain, as usual, but a strategy nonetheless.

I think it will work fine as well. Nothing drastic, just the part about fixing the IP problem. There aren't any graphics yet but as we all should know by now (or maybe it's just me) that's only 10% of the work that needs doing.

Like this idea, probably wont do one as pretty pictures aren't my thing.

However, shouldn't this be in feedback not stuff?

It probably should, Errkal, but unfortunately many folk don't notice stuff in the feedback section and I thought we"d get more logos made if I posted it here.

Richard, thanks for your submission... that"s certainly a bold design!
