Thanks to some handy work from sicc, we've changed our site logo. It's not quite a final version yet, but Ryan and I felt it was time for a change. We may incorporate the new logo into our GrandAmGT.com store and offer store items in a choice of the Original logo and our new logo.

I like it, it would make a good logo/t-shirt if it was just a trace of the main lines w/o the lava effect.

that is my car, i recognized the reflection in the door/side, it is my calender shot from last year that sicc chopped the two tone idea i have working.. SWEET! i feel special and didn't even know it!

edit: here is that picture, notice the shadow going up the door that at first lead me to beleve it was a 4-door, but def the same shadows, just inverted..

incase you haven't noticed, I just added another poll. Pick a logo. Your choice chooses the logo (unless it looks really retarded, then Ryan and I will make the final decision).

Jeremy
10-08-2004, 01:00 PM

only thing I don't like about the current logo is the Sofachrome font. EVERY GA site out there is using it. That's why I had sicc throw together some with different fonts.

Keep the font like the current but put the spedo on the lava - done.

How about using a font like "Copperplate Gothic".... and having the font be a different color than the rest of the pic. Just an idea.

Before I vote..

Agreed.. can we assume that if we vote for "Current Logo" the guage would be changed like in the other options?

Also.. IMO if the font is left in white, altho it def. stands out more, it looks incomplete, like someone forgot to fill it with a color.. n somebody mentioned making the font an entirely different color... another poor idea (IMO) cuz then it'll just look mismatched n slopped together -- unless it's hot pink!!! lol

The car n the effect look totally hot tho!! :thumbs:

and how would you recommend we do that? I saw your post about the blower and turbo guys, you want blowers and stuff all over the logo? I think the new design (minus the flame insert the speedo) pretty much sums it up. If others that are graphically enclined would like to submit something, feel free to email it to webmaster@grandamgt.com. Keep in mind we're not changing the overall site colors (shades of blue) and the colors you use should flow with the current color scheme.

I disagree the font should contain some white so it pops out. The all darker font seems to get lost in the image.

Jeremy
10-08-2004, 07:50 PM
It's still the new logo. It's the same file name (I didn't feel like changing all the code, so I named the file the same). You need to refresh your browsers cache. Hold down the left shift key and click the Refresh button in your browser and you should see the new logo.

Rich
10-08-2004, 07:53 PM
hmmm, i tried that and it didnt work.

10-08-2004, 08:23 PM
well I can guarantee you that the new image is up on the server. or you could click the Current Image link in the voting list.

Sleepwalkr
10-08-2004, 11:35 PM
This gives you a different font other than Sofachrome. Kind of a rough draft, but you get the idea.....I'm sure sicc could improve upon this thought.

I can't say that I'm a fan of any of those.. so I whipped one up myself real quick. I think the grand am in the pic should have a bit more white to make it stand out like some of you were discussing, but thats an idea, maybe I'll come up with more later if anybody likes.

I think it looks pretty cool. From a designers prospective no gradients in a logo thats a big nono and the grandamgt should be just straight and whiter like you said. Other than that great job.

I thought the pictures were a good representation of the cars of the board, and the angles work I think... I should move the one to the left to the middle, other than that.. i think its deez. Eh, if you would like to select 3 pictures I'll do the same banner with the pictures of your choice.

Oh, and I agree with the new ad logos!

Jeremy
10-12-2004, 07:06 AM
keep in mind we're thinking about putting the logo onto t-shirts and other stuff in our store, so the image needs to work in that respect.

shadesofnight
10-12-2004, 10:03 AM
How would the logos I created not work on a tshirt? I'm assuming the tees would be white so there wouldnt be any color conflicts as far as the background goes. The only thing I would change for the 2nd logo to go on a t-shirt would be make the main boxes the darker blue and the angled rectangle outline part the lighter blue, just for a better contrast against the white.

Jeremy
10-12-2004, 11:46 AM
what I'm saying is, for the t-shirt, we'd do a smaller breast image and a larger back. We can do multiple images too, Send me what you got (full sized psd files please) and I'll take a look at them. webmaster@grandamgt.com

btw that shot i used of your car is the picture that needs to be used on any logo, the leverage of that shot is just amazing, and it fits into the top of a page quite well..

10-13-2004, 04:06 PM
oh my fault, i didnt even see that you had an image on there. I switched pages too quickly for your image to load. I like it, of course im quite partial to any logo/image with my car in it lol. I agree though a stance and angle such as my shot would work awesome for a logo at the top of a page.

Yeah it did take me a couple of hours, because I wanted it to look decent. Yeah its a bland font but thats what is needed for this, the font is modified a little as well. As far as I know im the first one to use imagination and actually work with the front type, you guys are just clicking the type cursor, selecting a font and size and wahlaa its done. :rolleyes:

10-14-2004, 12:51 PM
If I felt creating my own font type was necessary I would have, but I felt the fonts used got the job done effectively. Just because you took the time to make your own doesnt necessarily mean its genious. I dont have the time to get all creative for something I dont get paid for, but I just felt we could use a little something better than what was offered.

mr_eh
10-14-2004, 01:16 PM
modified the font type? no offense sc/t but i could do what you did in 40 seconds... unless im misunderstanding what your saying?

all you did looks to me is type once, grow by 2, move the layer, put some lines in, and.. yeah.. why do you think what you did was so complicated, and wtf took you hours to do i dont get it?
