Hi AmiBayers!!

As part of the site makeover and transition to VBulletin, here's your chance to make your mark on our site! What we want you to do is design a new logo for our site.

The chosen logos will become part of a rotating banner of logos, which will include our original logo designed by Sarek2k. The more observant among you might have noticed that Sarek2k has tweaked the original logo, as above.

OK, there are some simple rules and constraints to this competition as follows.

1. It should have a readily recognisable retro 'feel' to it, one that 80s and 90s computer users would recognise and feel at home with.

2. Retro fonts are allowed, as long as they are clearly readable and aren't too small.

3. It doesn't have to be computer platform specific, as we now serve the whole retro community.

4. It should convey something about our trading site; how this is done is totally open to your interpretation.

5. Resolution: 800x150 at 72dpi maximum.

6. No exotic file types, please; JPEG, GIF. PNG, BMP etc. should be OK.

7. No images which may cause offence to others, as per our general site rules.

8. Keep any animations simple, so that pages still load fairly quickly on a dial-up line (yes, some people still have them!)

Please post your entries in this thread.

We will be selecting a panel of judges to select the best logos and we will announce who the judges will be shortly.

Right, let your imaginations run riot, and good luck!!!

I'm not a pro in designing, but it would be a nice idea, when this will be over, to see all the available logos and vote for them.

You don't have to be a top designer. We want to see all ideas everyone can think of. Don't worry if your artistic skills are not brilliant, because if an idea is good enough and you can convey them visually well enough that is good enough.

Good luck everyone, and I look forward to seeing what you can all come up with. :)

@ JuvUK

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it.

It will get judged, along with all of the other entries that are currently being worked on by artists, slaving away in their studios...

or something like that.

@ McVenco

I love the red retro font! What's it called...??

:mrgreen:
