Logo request
« on: October 18, 2010, 03:07:56 PM »
Hi,

We are hosting a small educational site. We will try to redesign it to look very clean and minimal, white background and lively colors, lets say google main site look&feel. 

We need some simple logo ideas. It would be great if it could be some educational symbol (graduation hat, book...) in combination with our url (drzavna-matura.com). It should have some lively colors but look clean and simple. Simplicity is of high importance.

Thank you much for your help.

What size would you like it to be?

It would be great if it is large enough to give me enough freedom to make smaller and different sizes later by shrinking.

The biggest used size will be for forum (SMF) header. Other smaller sizes would be used for some document headers, or banners, etc...It would be good if size ratio is more on width side, meaning that width is bigger than height.

Thank you very much.

Hmmmmm............... this is a tough one.
Check this out and if I am way off,  just tell me.
By the way this is just a rough quick attempt too see if it is what you want.

Thank you for your effort but this was not what I had in mind. I was thinking about much simpler logo where you would combine one educational symbol with url of our site, and the backgrounds would be transparent. It would be great if that logo had lively colors.

 ;DDont worry, it is nice and interesting but we were aiming for something different, event though something like this could be used but for different purpouses...

Still, thank you so much for trying. Do you have some other ideas?

Ok, now we are getting somewhere, thank you guys for your effort, this is definitely much better :)

It is definitely in good direction, both of designs, but we need more lively, multicolor logo...Something very similar but maybe more colorfull if you can see what I am aiming for? I like the google logo colors for universal example :)

I have better idea. Can you try to make logo out of our url, with nice font and multiple colors, something like google logo? Than we can see if we can add some educational symbol to it.

URL should be much more important part of logo, highly emphasized.

Not sure how to do the Google thing without doing a layer for each letter which is more time than I have to put into it I can do this though .

That is better. I would loose completely the circle around, only leave multicolor url.

It would be good to remove the black part out of url too, and use color hues closer to this one in attached image (that colors will be used on site with a lot of white):
