LOGO DEATH FIGHT PART 1 - The Prelude To Brand Identity

here are 4 ideas for the logo. consider the challenge begun. Dropped in a layout mockup as well. not sure how flexible blogger is, but something along these lines would be pretty cool.

Better? In order to do what you want I'm gonna hafta go into the site in html. Which I'm not very good at.

ill try to figure something out when i have the time. Untill then I'm just gonna edit the colors on existing templates.

hey, not bad. can you make me an admin user on the blog? that way I could fuck around with it. also, I'm not going to class today, so take good notes.

the headlines are too hard to see in this scheme.

Every ones an admin now. huzzah!

rad. Yeah I agree, this looks better, It's not completely there yet, but definitely a step in the right direction.
I like the full flamebrush element, but it seems like a hard shape to fit in there.
I'm glad we're all on admin now. I'm going to work up some logo ideas and post them. I'll stay out of the html for now, but I can do it up in dreamweaver when we're ready.
I think we need more color. Theres too much black and white. We need to come up with a good color scheme. Probably a range of hot colors like yellow through red. Then maybe some dark greys and light greys (instead of black and white)... I don't know, Ben's the color master.
I'll play with logo ideas though - good opening challenge Ben.

I'm going to mess around with the layout today, just to get used to how to work with blogger. when we get something we all like, I'll know how to implement it.

i do like my logo down in the sidebar, though.

re: colors - i kind of like it when the images we post are the sources of the colors. i agree though, the black is a little oppressive.

i liked the black. but i guess im in the minority. dark grey maybe?

Ben said...

i like the black too, but it was a little too heavy. i couldn't get blogger to only put it on one side.

Jon Sperry said...

those flames need to be animated gifs or something. Or flash animated. Can you implement flash elements with blogger? I can do it if you want to send me the files. I like the header, but it doesn't look right with the black rectangle. And maybe try a red background?

I like the color scheme. I think the Art burn text should be changed, too blocky, also perhaps move the flames up to see some of the metal.

Ben said...

if you've got any ideas, you should post them, so we can pick the ones we like.

you mean we've got to do our own? can't we just critique yours all day? :P
