Title: LOGO needed
Post by: aron on January 24, 2007, 08:54:45 PM
I believe it's time this site got a logo. Now I'm thinking I don't want something complicated - just something that would be easy to print and that would be stylish. I'm not sure how we could arrange this but I'm open to suggestions. The winner would get a prize consisting of items from the store. Any ideas on this?

well...ive got an idea...

i had this dream that i was a master chef, and i could cook anything i wanted...

so one day i tried the impossible...by making log sandwiches...

so, in order to make log sandwiches, youll need a big blender...throw the log in...and...

there you have it, the ultimate DIY...

sorry guys, im a bit nuts right now...

how about DIY in that scratchy faded style that most bands have as their logo font?

better still, we'll toss a season into our name...

Dude, put the joint down and go have some cheetos...  :icon_mrgreen:

Aron, did you have something in particular in mind? A spin off from the old logo? or something completely different? How about something simple that prints easy (on shirts, mugs, etc...) and one that is a bit more complicated that fits in the overall forum "skin".

I have a _lot_ of free time at work, so I might be able to put something together.

I'd like to be able to be printed easily as well as not too involved. No, it doesn't have to be based on the old logo, but somehow if a stompbox shape could be involved that would be cool.

oooooh!

a thin, bearded man on top of a mounted of solder, with an iron in one hand and a giant RC4558 chip in the, fighting off a giant long legged Germanium transistor...

since they already look like big squid/war of the world type things anyways...

The old one was DPDT so we can't use it.

Title: Re: LOGO needed

Hopefully the background won't be important. A while ago I was thinking it could even be a stylish freehand drawing of a stompbox.
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: choklitlove on January 24, 2007, 10:29:49 PM
i was thinking just have a stompbox with the letters squeezed into it in a cool way.  that or one stompbox per letter.  that way utilizing all of the cool shapes people use.

could be neat...

My first take.  Tell me what you guys think!
It's not perfect, pretty rough.  Just whipped it up.

I'm working on putting a bit DIP IC under the second part of the name.  I think it will look better.  Anyways I can tweak it however so tell me what you do/don't like. 

I was also thinking of doing the pedals different colours...thoughts?  I think not.

for the DIY letters is cool.

Cool ideas all around.
I like the logos so far.
the idea with DIY spelled IN the stompboxes is cool, maybe simplify the rest of it?
Some things I always consider when envisioning a logo:

- should convey the main message very simply and be very easy to read

- as above, should be able to scale down to a very small size and retain readability

- should have interesting balance of dark and light to imprint on the brain of the viewer (golden ratio applies here)

I am learning to crawl in mac works etc so forgive my primitive skills...

Well I got class in the morning but I just got a copy of Photoshop CS3 installed and I've been needing a reason to use it. Don't make any decisions until I submit a design, I'll most definetly try to integrate something that is essential to DIY'ers. I'll sleep on it and try to come up with something in my free time tomorrow.

Sidenote: These engineering classes are getting pretty intense... 6 hours of studying a day, 3-4 times a week is a pretty serious commitment  :o. It's all been worth it so far though as I always find myself asking questions the teachers can't answer (like what's the forward voltage drop on huge zener diode a teacher brought into class  :icon_mrgreen:) and correcting mistakes, plus Electronics 1 is a breeze.

Very cool logos.  The transistor one might be better as a "can", denoting mojo. 
But Joe's black and white design was awesome, too.  Perfect for a T shirt.

I was thinking of contributing something depicting my girlfriend putting an axe through a dozen rare stompboxes, but that probably doesn't happen to anyone else.   :icon_wink:

Heh, we're actually the ones killing any mojo around. Then again, Ge's do rock.

I'd vote for blindsjc. (until I finish and post my idea  ;))

The problem with others - spelling it:
"DIY

stompboxes.com" (Like Joe's and PKV's)

would really give the idea of www.stompboxes.com being the address.

any logo should typically be able to be printed in single colour. this way it is good for screening onto t-shirts and is easy to recognise like a symbol.

thehappytent has the right idea but i think the one with the boot is to complex.

i think a 3d view outline of a hammond box with the words DIY (large lettering) Stompboxes (small lettering underneith) written on the pedal would be cool.

we make diy pedals, having one as the logo explains what the board is about pretty clearly.

heres a handdrawn example

This is very similar to my idea! Aron, what do you think of this? I think it's a great idea, just have a simple stompbox with the logo on top and all of the switches and knobs on it. Simple, elegant and best of all... PRINTABLE!

Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: Cliff Schecht on January 25, 2007, 06:42:55 PM
Something like that pyrop, but a little more real looking. I honestly think (although it isn't my decision really) that the stompbox with wording would be the best route to go.
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: ulysses on January 25, 2007, 06:50:26 PM
i was actually thinking that someone would find a datasheet of the hammond box 3d view and trace it in illustrator then add the text, knobs and switches in the same style.

prob easier just to photgraph a premade box and do a manual trace in illustrator.

i dont really like the text on the side. its not a common way of printing onto the hammond boxes.

PKV
I like that one. With maybe a little more embellishment that would be perfect. Something to tie it into the stompbox theme with a switch and or box...

blindsjc
I dig that logo as well. Hope you don't mind but I made a couple shape changes and added a mock up.
Possibly adding a large box outline instead of or including the outline of the text may be nice. Sort of making aLus sign shape with the box vertical and the DIYStomp tect horizontal, and a switch at the bottom?

Great stuff everyone! I think one of the criteria should be the easy of which the logo can be displayed in black and white. With that in mind those with full colour logos may also want try to make a B&W version so see how the logo would translate.

usually it's better to have a vector based logo for that, flat colors (no shading or texture) and 3 colors max...

i did a t-shirt job recently for the french adaptation of the british serie "The Office" for french canada. in french the show is called "La Job" ...slang for, you guessed it... The Job... :icon_razz:

The Logo submissions are works of art. Could the ones that don't "win" be displayed in one of the galleries? That way people with an artistic bent, and a lot of time on their hands, could continually "submit" new ones, the way that new twists on the enclosure idea are posted in the "Pics" thread. Then, maybe if it's not too much of a pain, the Logo could every now and then change, similar to how Google adapts its logo to various events or holidays, etc. Just a thought.

Either way, impressive submissions guys  :icon_biggrin:

it's a common idea to change the look now and then to "spice" thing up but it's very bad marketing strategy, the action of giving a new look to something and develop it is called branding and companies who do change their look always do it for a specific purpose (and usually they change the look but keep (or adapt) their existing logo)

it just depends on what Aron wants to do with this page...
i guess for a forum like this one, he can change the look every year or so since it's probably not his full time revenue but if he want ot establish this page as THE diy ressource (wich i think it already is  ;) ) he'd better keep thing slightly pro looking... (so the first time visitor doesn't realize we're just a bunch of obsessed argumentative loonies...  :icon_lol:)

This is getting out of scope of the topic but I was expecting it as whenever there is talk about changes someone always suggests more forums. Suggestions are always welcomed and appreciated but it is my experience that more forums does not make for a better board. Unless there is a strong trend that emerges that seems to clog up a forum I think the way the forum is organized is just perfect for our current needs. :)

Really sorry about to be off topic,
But I'm always off topic with my questions about amplifier and etc.
I really love the idea of "diyAmps".

I don't know how to say it, with my poor english,
just think that a lot of people in this forum feels like me,
this forum is so good, the people here is so good, every
search brings so much good information that the only way
to define all this is love. Love by a lot of resistors and caps
that put together bring music to our lives.

I think that all the suggestions people put here is
feeling the same thing I feel, like these lines above.

again... sorry about bad english...

Thanks



Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: The Tone God on February 02, 2007, 02:33:34 AM
My feeling with the DIY amps suggestion is that this board's focus is on stompboxes. We do occasionally have a crossover of topics but this forum has a focus and one that it does very well. Keeping that focus I believe has been a major factor to the success of this forum. There are other amp forums out there that cover these topics so I don't see the need for us to repeat and treed on their territory.

Just my opinion. :)

I don't think a DIY amps forum would be useful really.  There are already established tube and solid state amp forum out there.  We could make one here, but it seems to me that all the amp guys are already concentrated other places.  We should just keep doing what we do best.   ;)

it's a nice idea, though.  it has a really nice sophisticated feel to it.  maybe someone can take a picture of their huge collection in a long straight line.  then the logo could fit across the top.

it's in my head, and it looks good but it's hard to explain...

Is there a number 8?
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: JimRayden on February 05, 2007, 03:17:18 PM
2 for vintage mojo.

7 for sleek modern design.

As good as the others look, they might be a bit confusing because the "DIY"-part is so darn separated. The address could be read stompboxes.com. Sorry for being so straightforward.

As a vintage nut that I am, I'd take 2. My second choice would be 7th picture, 2nd column, 2nd row.

I thought they logo should not just show electronics but stompbox characteristics. I personally liked:

(http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w119/shagahs/DIYSTOMPLOGO13.jpg)

It would still print out well under various sizes and methodologies.

Maybe with the text replaced with one of the above say number 6.

Just my thoughts.

Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: The Tone God on February 06, 2007, 01:32:35 AM
One of the things I like about the text in that logo is the site name is on one line. I found that breaking a site name up in a logo tends to screw people up when they type the name in. Sounds weird but its true. The font definitely could use some spicing up. Maybe not exactly like the others but something nice, clean, and classy but not boring.

As for the LED I saw that version but my thinking is that the lay person/musician may not know what the LED is as it would just look like a bump especially if shrunk. Almost all boxes have a footswitch and knob. Those are very strong images that musicians would recognize and they are quite large in that logo so it would shrink well.

You know I'm surprised that no one did this but that "Y" in DIY is screaming to be a BP transistor symbol. ;)

Just my opinion.

What if you turn the transistor into the Y on your logo?
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: blanik on February 07, 2007, 11:51:00 PM
Blanik,

What if you turn the transistor into the Y on your logo?

i did one version with DIY all made in electronics symbols but it looked a little too ROG and just putting the Y in tranny schem with DI in font would be too confusing i think (by experience..)

i can try one with a thin typo for DI and tranny for Y just to see...

shouldn't be too long...

I think the diode for "DI" is just starting to obscure the name enough that lay persons would not know what it means. I do like the transistor "Y". If the D in that logo was cleaned up a bit it would be a good contender as well.

Just my opinion.

I like nš 2 better.
Nš 8 is fine, but tha "can" transistor is way cooler.

I don't like Nš 7. I read something like Bloomingdales... sorry.

I'd go with number 2 again, with some touch ups. Id' look for a new font. That one loos bulky, too heavy, and old. This is an online forum.
Maybe in a couple of days I can sugges a few ones.
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: keko on February 13, 2007, 05:02:16 PM
...so, I took the liberty to modify entry Nš2 (blindsjc, I hope you don't mind), changing the font.

This way (nevermind the color) you separate the three words in the frase using different body weights, but still get a single-word readability. I believe that the use of a more contemporary font-face is also a positive atribute. BTW, the font used is named Delicious (http://www.josbuivenga.demon.nl/delicious.html), free for personal and commercial use.

This one's the way to go IMHO...  And I also agree that the silicon tranny looks better in this logo.
Maybe a subtle shadow could give it a little more visual "depth" (3-D look).

How about making "stompboxes" capitals as well, but slightly smaller than "DIY"? Just an idea...

Keep up the good work, guys!

I think the TO-92 look better and is more recognizable to the average person then the can. I like the idea of separating the words by changing the weight of the font.

Andrew
Title: Re: LOGO needed
Post by: Marcos - Munky on February 14, 2007, 05:15:13 PM
Just a little suggestion for the can one. What about to make the middle leg shorter? This can give the effect of the middle leg being in the back, and the other legs in the front, like how you see when you look at a can transistor.
