OVERUNITY.COM LOGO CONTEST!
« on: August 06, 2008, 09:35:42 PM »
All,

Webmaster Stefan Hartmann has given permission to begin a thread for an OverUnity.com logo contest!

I suggested this to Stefan and he agreed we could do this. Stefan is currently on vacation so he may not have time to spell out details. Still, for anyone with interest, why not start working on a logo design?

My vision for this was an eye-catching logo for the website header and a small 16x16 icon for web browser use ("favicon" or similar). Perhaps Stefan would agree to expanding the logo concept to include a design for the entire header.

I am willing to help coordinate some of this effort, as needed, however I will be on vacation next week as well with limited Internet access.

Everyone, it would be great to see your imaginative designs! While creating, please keep in mind the basics for good web graphics, as best you can: logo dimensions, browser compatibility, impact, simplicity, etc. And of course, we are looking for original ideas; no plagiarism!

I'll look to Stefan to provide any details and a deadline for this contest when he can, and as I stated, will assist with the contest if needed.

Stay tuned... Thanks Stefan!

Good idea.

Here are some general guidelines for a logo design.

1) It should be compact.
2) It should be visible in large or very small format.
3) Not more then three colors.
4) It should look good with light or dark background.
5) It should be easy to have embroidered or printed on hats, caps, t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc.
6) It should convey the serious quest for free energy.
7) If there are white areas inside the logo, these should be marked as transparent unless the logo has a border.
8) If using standard text styles, you should identify the text style when you post your submission.

Don't draw an oil drilling rig with a big X on it. lol

Well, here's my first attempt, I'm not entirely happy with it, I will probably evolve it some more when I get time. The favicon could be just the OU part reduced down.

Dont forget its about the small 16x16 icon too, a big icon is fine but need the icon associated with it

That give me an idea for a small one, I will try one too today :)

@Yucca

Try stretching the VER more to the right past the NITY so you can put the .COM.

You can even put the COM so it is vertical, one letter on top of the other or sideways.

Nice logo though but don't forget the .COM because there could be some copyright issues if you only use OverUnity.

But I like the O and the U that could also be done as TheOne said in 16x16 as a favicon.

Look up "favicon" on Google. There are even some free programs or online icon programs.

Also, remove The Quest for Freedom as any such slogans are not part of the Logo and should be added separate to the actual Logo work afterwards.

Good work. Really nice top O loop like a rotor over the U that is like a stator.

Well my job is done, I made one icon 16x16 in pixel (version 1), the only way to get something write at this size is pixel art :)

What about the big logo too? Your job is only half done ;D  (nice 16x16 icon by the way!)

I will make a 16x16 favicon too, I am familiar with favicon concept, have made them for my own websites, my art package can save as .ico.

but they are always derived from my final large logo idea, so when I've settled on large icon, I will derive favicon.

@wattsup,

thanks for the feedback, I will try and get the .com in somehow and yes I'll remove the slogan, as you say slogans can be added later.

Howdy Y'all,

Here's an idea.  Make the letters in OverUnity.Com different devices that are chronicled here.  The "O" could be a Bessler Wheel.  The "V" could be a Jacobs Ladder.  The "i" could be a Tesla Coil.  The "U" and the "n" could be horseshoe magnets.  The little "o" could be a water wheel.  The "U" could be a HHO electrolyzer in a bucket.  The "m" could be an inductor in some sort of circuit around the perimeter.  It would take some graphic artistry and a high resolution logo to do it, but isn't this what OverUnity.com is all about?  All the various devices that are being explored here?

Blessed Be Brothers...

Here is the trans versions with suggestions from watts.

The font is Century Schoolbook L Bold .

The colors have changed.

The 16x16 icon is actually 20X20 (but I could massage it into a smaller size (just didn't wanna ;) ).

Wonderful input here, Wattsup! Thanks!!! All of these are great guidlines! I highly recommend these as well.

Also I'd like to suggest the following:
 
9) Please feel free to contribute even if you don't have advanced graphics or webmaster skills. If you come up with a terrific design and there are some technical issues, there are plenty of people here who can help with technical corrections.

10) Let's not get too involved yet with the web icon. The 16x16 web icon, being so small, is quite challenging. The colors and general shape of the larger logo is usually all that can be captured, or maybe letters "O" and "U" might be all that we'll eventually use. In fact, as far as shaping contest rules, I wouldn't make it a contest requirement for everyone to create this little doohicky, since I think this will restrict the creative effort. Once a winning general logo is selected, we'll have some idea how this guy should look. [edit -->] Of course, if you want to pursue this as well, that's fine too.

I don't want to be rude but it ugly :)

Also title header should be "small in height" its cannot be used on a site because so many space is wasted in the page!

The small icon should be 16x16 (cannot be different then that), 32x32 can be used but its for desktop use only. Also the icon should say when you look at it what that mean.
