Ok gang, I guess we need some kind of logo. This probably won't be for the website but for the apparel we're going to have on Cafepress (t-shirts, jackets, caps, etc). These will be items you can order and a small portion of each item's cost will go toward the cost of running this place. An 'everyone wins' kind of deal. It's a chance to show off your love of synthesizers and your dedication to this site.
The logo should feature "Vintage Synth Explorer" and a smaller reference to "www.vintagesynth.com" kind of like my signature. You can use images of a synth in it too, but make sure you use nothing that is copyrighted. If you can take your own pics or create your own graphic designed synthesizer, that'd be really cool too! I'd suggest bright colors that look good against a dark background, but it's wide open right now.
Submit your designs by Feb. 1st and then we'll all vote for a winner. Submit as many as you want.. within reason. The winner will get a t-shirt on the house. It is best to just email your designs to me at: webmaster (at) vintagesynth.org. After Feb 1st, I'll post them all up in a Vote/Poll thread for us to pick the best design.
For now I'm just planning on shirts, but caps, bumper stickers, magnets, pins, girlie shirts, etc. could all be available too. The logo will go on the front of the shirt.
Logos should be JPG for now, the winner should send me a Photoshop version if possible in case I need to resize it for the various products. The more DPI, the better, from 100 to 300 DPI is good. And the logo should be no bigger than 10" by 10"
Good luck and let's see what ya got!
