Okay members time for a new logo for the forum. Since this place is a little plain Jane we need to spice it up with a fresh logo. I need a banner for the front page and one for the top of the forum. For the front page it must be 800 x 300 and for the top banner it must be 275 x 100. I will have this open until we receive enough entries to really make it a contest.

Do you have an example of the color scheme for the forum skin? That might help people in designing the header logo.

Edit--- This is the scheme we are leaning towards..... Possible SX4Club skin (http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=248375)

Great idea! Too bad I'm not the least bit of an artist, but I know some of our forum members do some fantastic work. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with! :D

Hey guys, I've been playing around with a license plate theme for the 800 x 300 artwork.

Here is my link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/85265871@N00/5242721384/

Comments welcome, good or bad, no problem.

I think it's really good, but to me it looks like the top of a sunday car ad in the newspaper.

I thought the same thing Brumbie, but Punksmurph had 800 x 300 dimensions in his original post. Will look at it later this evening.

800 x 300 is for the main page http://clubsx4.com. Burmbie has the updated dimensions for the top of the forum.

Any specific text or anything that you want on the logo/banner? (I kind of like the existing front page slideshow)

Also, just to clarify, is the banner dimension 1008x108 (old forum image properties) or 800x86 (resolution of image re-posted by Brumbie)?

Can we submit multiple entries?

Do it at 1008x108 and we can resize as needed. Also if you have more than one idea lets see them. And we want fresh idea's, you do not need to use any of the current text or styling, just try to see if you can match the theme that Darren posted earlier.

For the top of the forum banner, why not use some of the photos of members rides that have been posted over the years? If you don't have enough pics to chose from, I'm sure a simple request would yield many more. Some of the pics have some awesome scenery while others showcase the car in various terrain demonstrating the vehicle's capabilities. Then you can change them up every so often to keep it fresh and interesting.

That's a pretty cool idea, especially if we can get the banner to cycle through different images with page refreshes.

That's kind of the route I was headed. Here's a rough edit of one idea I had. My work computer doesn't have any good filters or photo software, so I'll have to redo it at home later. I'm also going to make it a bit 'rounder' to fit with the Zen theme [Rounded in updated image] and change the font because I didn't end up liking it (it's called 'Zook' for anyone who's interested).

The pictures were all taken from this (http://www.sx4club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8364) thread.

I had to find pictures that were:
1) Unique
2) Taken well
3) High resolution

If you have a picture that fits those three qualifications, and you'd like it in the rotation, PM it to me.

Basically a re-work of what was used at the old site. The photo likely is a no-no (unless Suzuki is feeling charitable), but anything could be substituted.

Ok, about the logo. Here it would be legal to use as long as it is only a part of a picture. For example if seen on a car photographed for the logo. This obviously is not the case is USA, assuming by comments.
But what about Fair use? Does it let us use the S-logo on this, clearly not commercial forum?

As this forum is not a commercial enterprise the picture falls under fair use. We reap no reward from it being on our site. The S logo is a trademark as we would have to add a disclaimer at the bottom of the site for it. In fact it is not a bad idea to have one anyway.

You'd think that Suzuki would be pleased that ANYBODY wants to use their sacred "S" logo on anything. Seeing as they don't promote it themselves.
