LOGO needed
« 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.

For me, nothing says diy stompbox more than the 3PDT switch.

I like the old logo.

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



The classics never fail though.

yeah, i think we need to decide on the definitive DIYstompbox component then use it as the main part of the logo.  maybe just an IC silhouette?

What color you want for the background?  That blue color thats there?  Because I may be able to try something cool out.

Hopefully the background won't be important. A while ago I was thinking it could even be a stylish freehand drawing of a stompbox.

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...

Cool guys!

Joe, interesting. I think that it should probably just say DIYstompboxes.com although of course I like what you did!  ;D ;D ;D

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.
