As we seem to have a number of Photoshop and Illustrator Wizards out there now, what better way of updating the Smartz logo for our 6th year online than ask the members to have a go !!

Our logo above has been with us for the last 6 years, designed by Matt or Lisa (I think !!) We've had a couple of different ones for short periods of time, but always gone back to this one.

To submit your logo idea's, please PM them to me, Lucidsmart2005 or email them to the smartz contact email address.

The Admin team will then select their 10 best and put it to the member's vote.

Closing date will be Friday 31st July

Design Brief

A new logo to reflect the Smartz site, and it's identity. It will be used for the site header, stickers and merchandise, if there is a demand for it. The colour scheme is not limited, however after a chat with all the admin's, we all felt that we would like the S to continue to be of a different style from the rest of the text.

Is it still to be red or can the colour be changed?

Any colour you like !!

As per the brief, No limit on the colours that can be used, however remember that it will be used across various media where the colours available could be limited.

For those in the knoe about photoshop n stuff... further to what Lucid said.. try and keep the colours "Web-Friendly"
shouldnt be too much of an issue if theyre not.. just easier to work with if they are ;)

With regards to the site header, what's the maximum dimensions we can go to?

Doesnt matter too much, remembering that its just a logo.. plus it will need to be made smaller to go on stickers and stuff

[edit- image taken into admin area for vote !!]

Ok i am no photoshop wizard but was bored so started playing about. It is not perfect but after colouring each pixel of the little logos from black to white I was getting bored. Wasn't intending to have a black background but if it is going to be stuck onto car windows (mine are tinted) that is what it would look like. :P

edit: oops sorry about the size lol

Basically, because a lot of he mods have been away or about to go away, its going to be decided once they are all back. We have had some really good entries. I'm sure if anyone else wants to add one while we wait for everyone to be back, that would be fine. Just PM them to me as I'm not going away until next thursday
