    Cool HamIsland Logo Search!

    CQ Artists.. CQ Artists.. CQ Artist..

    HamIsland is in search of a new logo! Contributions are welcome from everyone! Unfortunately the only compensation we can offer is our extreme gratitude and acknowledgement. :) Some requirements off the top of my head...

    - Suitable for print & screen...
    - Scalable for logo miniaturization or variants allowing that...
    - Preferably in a format easily manipulated by Adobe Photoshop (.psd) or GIMP (.xcf) with unmerged layers.
    - Creative Commons licensing or wiliness exclusively and indefinitely license to HamIsland...

    I look forward to seeing what you all can come up with. Thanks guys!

    "Very large" - "high resolution" -- etc. :)

    I'd like to have the option to put it on tshirts, hats, coffee mugs, etc.. not for profit, but as a promotional tool at ham fests and what not. So that needs to be pretty big..

    If not a single logo, several variants of the same theme.. I'd like to brand the site and have a very specific and unique look.

    I will get right on it! Whether I come up with anything useful is another story, but I will work on it.

    As far as tee shirts et al, I have no problem with you taking a profit on them if the money goes to the site.
    All the worlds a stage, but obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Maybe thats why its hard to tell if were living in a tragedy or a farce.

    And I will guarantee you at least one sale on a mug, a tee shirt and anything else that your devious mind can contemplate. Carlo: You might think in terms of embroidery as well as print and electronic. Might make a nice design for a golf-style shirt or similar.

    Let the game begin, say I. And may the best designer win.

    The graphic could work, but including any sort of photograph in the logo will severely limit the applications to which it may be applied. I would suggest keeping a logo purely as a graphic -- it could be combined with a photo for those applications in which such use would be suitable.
