Draw a logo for Kestra / BitWorld V2! We offer all the fame without the riches. 8)

category: gfx [glöplog]
We think the new site deserves a proper logo, or many! Instead of the sprightly colored text line that is there now...

Logo words: "Kestra", "BitWorld", "V2.0" (or v2, II etc), "Janeway"

Kestra was the site's first name. Then it became BitWorld. So it's known by both names. Now the site should be known as "Kestra / BitWorld V2".

So V2.0 or similar should be recognizable also and it's good if you can fit in the (Linux-distro-like) codename, Janeway, somewhere as well. We know it's a lot of text for this space. This is to make composition easier with this long format - although you don't *need* to use the full width.

Default size 1072x120, but down to 320x60 is ok. You can submit in 1:1px scale, vector, or upscaled and we will adapt it to make sure your logo looks as good as possible.

The brightness level of the grey background is a good cue to make it fit in with the rest of the site, but it doesn't need to be this grey background, or indeed this level, the key is that it looks good on the site.

So it's all pretty loose and free - be creative!

The site/theme is of course about Amiga demos, but it's just as important that it fits in and looks good. And as you can see AGS already included a glenz and a boing ball. ;) ;) So hop on over and take a look at Kestra / BitWorld V2 !

I will try to make one too, of course! Here is the background in the correct max-size - if you wish to use it.

I'm sure you will get slammed with logos pretty soon.

OK, our site V2.0 is now released, but there is no deadline, of course. I made a quick logo, but I'm very sure the excellent gfx artists here can beat it in both style and skill...

Be sure to include a tiny logo credit somewhere in the picture, since we don't have a tag line below the logo or voting like here on Pouet.

Here are some logos, also quick. ;)

Mhmhm... time to get back in action maybe.

the one with the face seems a bit interesting. the others seem like just font work. and i do not like the black and white. i like the colored defender-of-the-crown-like logo we currently have.

by the way, it is "Kestra/Bitworld II" and not "Janeway II". Janeway is just the codename for the second version of the Kestra/Bitworld project.

i think i understood that they are black and white because i can choose the color.

I included the new logo. looks better than I thought! I keep it for now. Maybe I implement random logo display, so click reload when you do not see the logo.

I made them all grey, because beside the light blue, the whole page is pretty grey-ish.

thats a point. however I also like the copper-color contrast to the blue. its a good choice.

I now have built in random logo change. And: Every logo which is transparent, can come with it's own Background pattern as an extra file, so that the page width can be flexible. And every logo can come with its own height. If a logo is not transparent, then it should have extra pixels without important content hanging out to the right and/or to the left.

Well, I played around a bit and think a flexible height is perhaps not that good. Would make the page content jump and that probably could annoy the visitors.

Made another logo. OK, so 4 logos now?

And Salinga: can you check my remix of yours with the star in the middle? Just so you don't think I stole it.

you should increase the height of the logo on the site (it's just a table to be modified me thinks), it would be much easier to make decent logos. 120 is really small.

by the way if it's the ugly-logo-party let me participate with a 10-minutes bad logo

bull, I think there is too much space under the text. I like the letters. I have no idea how one can do this in 10 minutes. I'm sure it took you longer. ;)

I take back my idea to have a flexible logo height. It would make the page content jump on subsequent loads, which is not very comfortable for a visitor (think of mouse moves).

Please forgive me, because I cropped the two new logos above to our max height of now 150 pixels and adjusted the page content width to 1070 pixels, which is more easy to remember. The page width may grow in the future.

You can always check out how your logo looks on our site by using the parameter logo=filename on any of our pages. For example http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/submit.php?logo=example1.jpg

On that page you can find the reworked logo guidelines.

I am including the three latest logos from Maali and Salinga now.

Maali, I added a pure blue background to your logo to fill the empty space around it. Everybody who makes a logo for us may supply a background pattern as an extra file. This is good when the logo is transparent or smaller than our logo area.

it hard to 'not' pay attention on something. to me it looks like something to view with 3D-glasses. ;)

i like the logos of bull

the second logo of bull is nicest.

i don't mean to be a dick, but having two names for a site, let alone three, plus a version number, is really really silly :) just fucking pick one. also, linux-distro-like codename? really?
