Red face Re: CF's January Competition - Design Logo + Icons

Just a quick sketch (not really good with all the painting programs -- this was done in paint.net, but could have been done easily in mspaint). For me to colorize, I'd need the background color (I just thought, check the html/css in the site source, Ctrl-U in Firefox), but I'm lazy (not really, just should be doing other things, like homework).



The "text" on the screen represents programming, the smoking computer box to the right I think speaks for itself (once you know that the chicken scratch outside the case is smoke), wireless keyboard/mouse through USB port on monitor, and pen and paper for recording good/bad BIOS options for overclocking the burning box. Everything is hand drawn, except the video cable (just the line/curve tool in paint.net), with the pencil tool.

While I think it represents a major portion of the site, I think it's complicated. Maybe someone could work with it or whatnot for colorization/cleanup. Maybe inspiration to hurry up and create something 1000 fold better, lol.

For the new/old sections/posts/whatever, I had in mind to have a wireless signal derivation, where waves and bright-er colors indicated newer content, while a lovely gray and dull version without waves indicates boring old content.

Can I ask why everyone is so attached to that old logo?

Most likely it's because it's so familiar(sp?). I would again go to www.vbulletin.com and nab the black and gray skin. Here's the link that goes directly to the themes. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...in-Style-Packs They're xml sheets so there's no graphics to have to fool with. Using those as alternative themes then go about adding a different style logo for them and leave the default as is.
If that's not the case, then it's simple enough to go to places like flamingtext or cooltext and make a logo with a transparent background. The glass or steel looks pretty neat.

I can move the "Forums" under "Computer" if necessary:





As for forum icons (otherwise known as the "lightbulbs"), I was thinking of these:





It would be awesome if you could assign a unique icon to each forum and have it function as the lightbulb icon. I tried doing that on my forum, but it didn't work right and so I simply made a new column on the forum list and put the icons beside the lightbulbs. Came out ok I guess, but still not as cool.

Does not match the theme at all.

...and when are you going to center the advertisements like you said you would?

Iagree. I like the new icons but the blue is just so different to the forum blue it looks wrong.

I just want a cleaner, less compressed version of the current CF logo.
