Hello everyone,

Since our logo is plain, simple, and unintersting we have decided to start a contest. What we are looking to replace is the top left part of the header where it says "OZZU WEBMASTER FORUM" with a more interesting and professional looking logo. Here is the logo we are looking to replace if you are confused:

Image

If you want to redesign the entire top header that would be acceptable as well, but not required.

If you decide to try to design a logo please post a link to where everyone can see the logo you design! Eventually we will hold a voting poll to see everyones favorite.

The winner will be awarded with 500 participation points. You can read more about participation points here:

Yeah I would prefer it be the same height as the image I showed you. The width really does not matter as long as its not wider than it already is. It can definetely be less wide.

The title can be

"Ozzu Webmaster Forum"

or

"Webmaster Forum"

Either will be acceptable.

I would prefer static. If you have the urge to try animated do not go too crazy on it as it would be a big nuisance I think. Something animated that is very settle might be acceptable.

I like your style it's like high-tech, i personally think it's sweet. if i could make designs like those, i would be jumpin for joy. lol. But im only 14 so i have a while to go, but you can look at some of my so called "artwork" at my website http://www12.brinkster.com/jackconnolly ... and im also tooo cheap to buy a domain name....or hosting

My 1st submission had a similar design to the actual logo (the gradient gray background):
http://norb.planetaclix.pt/ozzu-nms.jpg

I did a 2nd one with the same thought in mind, simplicity...
http://norb.planetaclix.pt/ozzu-nms2.jpg

FUSION: Your stuff is cool, you keep a graphic identity, too bad it's been used a lot by many people. It doesn't mean it isn't nice!!!

I am still working on my own style. My new website will be my ID (as soon as I have one :wink: )

Maybe you could cut down on the filesize or something. I waited for 2 minutes and it was still loading. That's a little big for a header graphic.

I had problems loading it too. The first few times it just refused to load and it would just act like it was loading and loading. Then finally it started working, and when it worked it went fast. Then when I tried again I got internal server errors. So it seems to be working at times, you probably just have to keep trying. Thanks for the entries norb.

Hey guys

The place where I put the images is a free web host and they've been cutting on server capacity and capability lately, maybe there's the connection problem.

Fusion: I have nothing against your style, it's a real killer! It's just not the 1st time that I see the "crosshair" shape and the image "fill" style (text lines, binary code, html code), although always different. Maybe I am just a little too used to it.

It's hard to innovate these days with all those great designers around!

Isn't anybody else posting pics? One thing I was thinking about, if one of the proposals will be used as a top title, the remaining graphics will have to follow (the dude holding the PC..)

Cheers

one thing I've learned is that in order to be truely innovative you must go off and experiment on your own, and not just learn and apply. Fusion has some great designs, and personally I like his signature the best, it isn't so busy and his symbol doesn't take up half the image.

Here's a simple format I'll use on our Tech Board at work. The only people who will see it will be the Tech Team at work on a secure site. It was a simple design, but as time permits I'll schedule more quality time with the real deal. Can't really do this at work.... picky managment. You burn up alot of brownie points at work when you get caught tinkering.... lol


/// SINCE THE IMAGE ISN'T SHOWING, I'LL MAKE A POINT TO CHANGE THE SERVER IT'S ON THIS WEEKEND. Sorry about that.... :(

I stole 10 minutes from my work-time (glad my boss doesn't know) and made a 3rd proposal:

Still no news about the end of the contest? We're still waiting for unflux?

Cheers to all.

BigWebMaster: What is the basis for your choice? Do you want a specific color scheme? Or should we just let our imagination flow?

thanks for your comments guys, let's see if I get some more spare time at work for a new layout.

I would say just let your imagination flow. My basis for choosing is something that would look good on the top of this forum, so if I feel it goes with the rest of the forum and the "webmaster" sort of theme, then it will score high marks.

not_to_bad. I like it. Maybe just a little bit trigger happy with the white. And if it's going to logo maybe fade yours a little bit more or delete and and maybe BWM would give ya credict in a stick topic if he uses yours.

You're right. I guess I should have removed the sun shades before completing the banner 8)

I'll try to soften it a bit.

No, I dont think it's the sunblades, i think it's the soft white AROUND the sunblads and the white around the text and the rest of the pic. The white makes the other part of the picture blurry- at least the lines are blurry where the white is- or you can see the lines at all.

Sunshades are my sun glasses (not sun blades/rays)! I didn't adjust the colors and I'll leave it that way. I prefer to design a new banner, I like it the way it is.

Right now I am looking for the right bitmap background. Until now all banners were made 100% of vector objects.

Hey that one is pretty good tierra. I would have to say its one of my favorites so far, if not my favorite. If you get some time tierra, would you mind making a few more with that same kind of design, but with different colors, like maybe one with lighter text for ozzu webmaster forum, and maybe try a few with a different color than red. I really think yours has potential, but want to see what it looks like in a few different colors / darkness / lightness. Would appreciate it very much, thanks.

3 more designs:

http://tierra.gnuk.net/ozzu2.jpg - This one is my favorite based on my favorite colors. I can't believe I didn't think about it earlier, but rounding off the corners really helped.

http://tierra.gnuk.net/ozzu3.jpg - Same as above except using your link color.

http://tierra.gnuk.net/ozzu4.jpg - "Cut through" design. I've done this style before just slightly modified on http://www.scavengerhunt.org/

Mind sharing with us what font you used, and how you kind of went about designing it? I am curious :)

I really dig that font and how you made it fade back into the gray on the right side to fit perfectly back into the forums design.

Well, it looks like it's either site1.jpg or site3.jpg (I have no objections, I love both those the best also :) ), so I'll explain how I got to site3.jpg first, then I'll explain site1.jpg (you have to get to site3.jpg before you can make steps towards site1.jpg.

site3.jpg:

1st step: Getting a hold of the background so the image will slowly fade into what BWM has to the right. I set my resolution up, take a screenshot, then in Photoshop 7, zoom in to about 800% on that and find the point where the browser borders are and where BWM's title image ends (which I found was actually shorter than the background image his blends into, so I extended to where the bg image ends, about 106 pixels). You simply mark those borders with the guides. Now, since I have the guides, I can make a quick selection of the part of the screenshot where BWM's background image keeps repeating. Copy and paste that into the whole bar, keep filling until it's all filled and just looks like BWM never even put up the "Ozzu Webmaster Forum" text. At this point, I cropped the image down to the 106 pixels by exactly 600 pixels (BWM's goes about 690 pixels, but it's the bigger version that's not meant for 800x600 resolutions). 600 pixels leaves room even in 800x600 for the chicken (? :lol: ). Now starts the complicated part, from this point, you can do virtually any design you want so long as it fades to the gray screen line background completely at the right. I set down the text first, selected font "Banco" (not sure where I got it, just looked good). I normally put down the text, then when I'm finished I scroll through my fonts to find the one that fits it best, but I took the opposite road this time. Making a new layer, I proceded to lay down my fading background by using the gradient tool set to do one color fading to transparent. Click and drag from the left to somewhere within your borders on the right.

Quick Newbie Note: It really doesn't matter what colors your using when you first lay down your structure, you can always ctrl+click the layer to select the transparency and fill with another color if your using certain layer blending, otherwise simply right click the layer, select blending options, and select color overlay. I did white text at first (default color) which I changed later, and I did a white gradient, which I also changed later.

At this point, if your actually doing this in photoshop, I bet it looks like a piece of *plum*. Just give it time. Okay, another new layer, but first, select the layer with your text and lay down more guides (4 more, each snapping to a edge of the text). I guess you could of done this in an "analog" way, but I'm obsessed with mathematics in geometry, so I clicked my info tab (next to navigator in the upper right corner), and while I was dragging each guide outward, I watched how far I was moving it and moved all of them 10 pixels out. Now create your new layer. Use the selection tool to select the area encased by the 4 guides you just layed down. Now go up to Select->Modify->Smooth and put in 10 pixels. Then ctrl+bksp (or alt+bksp for your foreground color) to fill the selection. This time it would be handy to select the color black before you fill. Anyways, this one you can not use color overlay, if you used another color, change to black and fill again. I'll explain why in a minute. At this point, believe it or not, it's almost done. All that's left is modifying colors if you haven't already, and putting in the layer blending options. Hopefully you have the text layer on top, move it there if not. Select the blending options for that layer, select "Stroke" and set it to 2 pixels wide and set the color. If you didn't make your text black like I did, also select "Color Overlay" and set the color to black. Click okay, we're done with that layer. Now select the blending options in the layer with your inner box we used black with (the one that is going to be transparent). For this one I used another stroke with a width of 1 pixel (white). Click okay, your done with that one. Now the background, select the layer, if you haven't selected your color yet, ctrl+click the background layer, and fill it with your color. Select the background's blending options now, and this time we use the Pattern Overlay. I got the best effect when I used the Luminosity blending mode for this, then select your favorite pattern (or make your own consulting Photoshop Help). Scale it as big as you want then click okay. Now for the last step. We didn't use color overlay on this one because when you mess with blending effects, for some reason any layer blending options you set aren't effected by the overall layer blending mode (probably why you can set the blending mode on each individual blending option). My final result ended up not using any layer blending modes, but it's always better to be safe than sorry. In order to get the rounded box to be transparent at this point is either to set the layer transparence to 50%, or set the layer fill to 50%. I went with fill because it didn't effect the stroke I set on the layer earlier. Finished.

site1.jpg:

Starting where I left off on site3.jpg, now you toggle the visibility of your text layer, then ctrl+click it to select the transparency. Now select the transparent black inner box layer and hit Delete. this creates a nice little hole in the shape of your text through which you can see through if you turned off visibility on your text layer. Because we had a stroke on the transparent box, it now stroked the letters also. You can tweak what you want from here, but it's basically finished.

Hope that helps a few of you with both photoshop, and with graphic design tricks. Again I would like to note that I am more of a backend database programmer than a graphic designer. If I can do this, anyone can.

The jpeg quality was set at 10 (pretty high quality for most jpeg), but the saved PSD I have is the final result which was http://tierra.gnuk.net/ozzu4.jpg

I went ahead and reversed my steps, and saved one pretty close to the original, but it's not exact.

Ohh, and I also wanted to note the other submissions that I really liked.

Fusion's kicked ass though BWM would of had to of redesigned the entire site to make use of it, but I love that style of design: http://www.fusion-netwerx.com/testing/images/ozzu.jpg

Norb's 4th design if it were toned down a little on the light (it is going on a dark template as it is) would be awesome... it's pretty cool as it stands: http://norb.planetaclix.pt/ozzu-nms4.jpg

I would of liked to of seen cowkiller's designs, but they all turned up 404.

I did like a lot of the others, but there wasn't a lot posted to really match the site. I really think that's the reason BWM has held off for so long.

I have decided to use tierra's logo that he created. Members are welcome to submit more logos if they think they have something that can beat tierra's. If I ever choose yours and replace Tierra's you will also win the 500 participation point prize.

I really like b_heyer's logo as well, if there was a 2nd place, I would have given it to him.

I have awarded tierra with his 500 participation points.

Note to Unflux: you are slow. Post number 3 of this thread dated May 6, 2003 at 9:20 PM says:

It has been 4 months sir, how long is it going to take? :rofl:

Anyway Unflux, and others, you are still welcome to submit your logo to try and replace tierra's. If I ever replace his, the person who created the new logo will be awarded.

I'll take a look over at Rubicund (heheh haven't even been there in a while) and see if I can whip something up...you might have to edit it to work with the 'new stays new' mod, I have it on mine but it didn't work, i'll try my best!

//EDIT

I take that all back, as I am lazy and need to work for an hour or two tonight before I goto sleep and goto school the next day. Mostly because I just realized the code would...ok I need to stop changing my mine, it MIGHT be plausable, placing the script in the header, but I'd need more then a few hours to look things over.

What do you guys use to design OZZU WEBMASTER FORUM title??

I'm using Adobe PhotoShop 7, I'm new to it. I was using an early version of PhotoImpact, but I was dazzled by PhotoShop's capabilities :twisted:

Well I have already awarded one guy for the current logo you see on Ozzu right now, but this competition is ongoing and if anybody can make one better than what is currently on Ozzu and I choose it, points will be awarded again.

If I get enough good logos I may just make them rotate each day of the week, so each time you come to ozzu you see something different! Not sure yet :)

heh, I didn't mean it to sound that way. I am just saying that photoshop is so versatile that you can create just about anything if you have the know how. I am about to go to school for Graphic Designing because I am really into it and there is just SOOOO much to learn that it is just impossible to learn it all on my own. So, I am no expert but I am always messing around with photoshop so I know how powerful it is. Anyways, that cloud background is a standard filter on photoshop..

Even though Unflux did not post his logo here, I did use the one he created which you can see in the upper left hand corner of the ozzu. For those of you curious, he had created the logo and placed it here:

http://www.unflux.com/ozzu/

Since this replaced the last one I have now awarded Unflux 500 more participation points. Congrats to Unflux!

As usual you may continue to post logos for ozzu. If anything else better ever arises your logo may replace what is there now and you will win 500 participation points. Good luck!

What’s the significance of the dragon?

I thought the current logo needed to be brighter in a contrast way. The "Webmaster forum" bit needed to be easy to read.

Here is my first draft...

The top logo is a mix of 3 fonts. All logos have been stretched from default settings.

Image

I havent got time to fiddle with Freehand now or upgrade my photoshop but the "webmaster-forum" on the top logo should be bent into a U shape to wrap around the ozzu.

just for fun I worked with it a bit. IN NO WAY do you have to keep or
use these! I was just in the mood to play in photoshop. I incorporated
part of ozzu's current design into 04.

OZZU WALLPAPER 03
- OZZU 03 (smooth) - 800x600
- OZZU 03 (smooth) - 1024x768
- OZZU 03 (smooth) - 1152x864
- OZZU 03 (smooth) - 1280x1024
- OZZU 03 (smooth) - 1600x1200

OZZU WALLPAPER 04
- OZZU 04 (pattern) - 800x600
- OZZU 04 (pattern) - 1024x768
- OZZU 04 (pattern) - 1152x864
- OZZU 04 (pattern) - 1280x1024
- OZZU 04 (pattern) - 1600x1200

(Again, this was just for fun to get opinions.)

oooooo, the confluence of thoughts and ideas into a collaborative form. I can certainly dig that.

You are right about the eye, UNFLUX. The red works well there.

Here's my vector of the dragon, if anyone would like to play with it/improve it.

Yep, the old trace job. I should have probably asked you and/or BWM for permission to post that. Let me know.

Tattoo? That would make a nice tattoo...for someone else. :D

dM - no permission needed really. I bought the outline so it's
licensed to OZZU. You can make and remake all you want with
it as long as it's for ozzu. ;)

nucleo - that's a really nice image, too bad it's not yours. But
we can certainly use it's inspiration to make an update possibly.
