any graphic artists?

So.... as we move closer to carbonite2 (when 5.2 launches there will be an alert popping up that carbonite is entering retirement). Any graphically minded folks able to create a new logo?

that's the problem :P I don't really have any idea's in mind lol .... I liked the original graphic they used, and had thought of just sticking a big red 2 over it... but then thought i'd ask since there are a lot of very creative people around

I sat down and did you a logo in 1024x512.

The following thumbs show the logo.

First one is a PNG with transparency.
Second one is the alpha layer by itself.
Third one the the image layer by itself.



I will add the TGA file in the post as a zip download.

Hope you like it.

VERY nice!!!


I like image's 2 and 3 with the shadows, but I like the colouring of image 1.... Maybe make the shadows more prominent?
(I know image 1 is the finished product and 2&3 are the layers)
Also, What would the image look like if the II was behind the Carbonite logo and maybe slightly bigger?

I'm not GFX minded so this is just feedback.. Positive feedback I hope

*edit Nevermind what I said about the shadows... I clicked image 1 and saw it on a transparent background. The shadows don't show in your thumbs.....


^using the [img] tags

WOW! we have some very talented people here on the forums...

I like the Font of the second image, but I feel the 2 is a bit out of place? stretched? IDK I can't place my finger on it... Maybe a II would be better? Or a colour change of the 2?
The first image is awesome and I can't see the mistake you have mentioned... (untrained eyes lol)

Looks like Rythal will have his work cut out for him (again) to decide what one to pick lol.

Both contestants (so far) have talent and I hope there is more entries so Rythal Literately can't choose lol

@zork Liking the reflection method, and the "II" seems to fit better than my "2" I stuck on mine.

@JimJoBlue
Yea I did distort the "2" a little much in the second one. Thanks for the feedback/suggestion about the "II", I'll give that a try this afternoon

Wow... yeah both look great! I wish I had talent to do stuff like that, but I guess we all have our own areas of expertise!

@Cirax I like that one, although, the glow in the middle kinda leaves the ends a bit lacking. Maybe tone the glow a bit or make the text pop a bit more?

The electricity background is 1 premade object that I did not create but felt it would be a good thing to use. The text itself I was trying to get an electricy feel to it and have the colors sort of blend in with the background image. I'm not too sure how to make the text pop so much without separating the similarities.


Edit: I added the psd to my post if you want to toy with it, I'm still biased to my version. :P

Personally I would layermask the first 2 and last 2 letters (just the letters not the "static" attached to them)and maybe adjust the levels just so they dont look like they fall in the back ground. Right now "bonite" looks fine but starts to fall off on the other letters. Dont get me wrong I think it looks great, and these are just my opinion, just tossing ideas at ya
