    William,

    Here is the one I posted in the "cooking up some ideas" thread a month ago..
    If its too complex for reproduction, I could simplify it up a bit..
    actually, I think I will modify it..the pitcher picture needs to be made more like a graphic, and less like a photo..
    (can we enter more than one? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] )


    edit..
    after reading

    I will definately change my logo..its too complex as-is..
    ok, this will NOT be my entry! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    I will talk to Casper about submission period. I think it should be a while. Not like you can whip up a good logo in 10 minutes. We need time for people to think, doodle and create.

    And I'd say fine to more than 1. The more selection we have to choose from the better.

    I agree with PAK, you can submit as many as you want. I really don't want to put a time frame on it, because people need time to make a good logo. I say we leave it running indefinatly. If we see something we like, we can call a winner, and if something else comes along that is better, then we will just have 2 winners.

    PAK have you done this logo thing before? your outline of what is required is darn near word for word what i hear about redoing newspaper mastheads and logos: if its in color it must also look good in B/W ect ect. you nailed it. also being a pressman myself let me put in my 2 cents. overly complex is always what you want. if done in a letterhead it can be distracting from the letter. also if your going to be using lots of copies of the letterhead(over 250) or envelopes(you wouldnt believe how many personalized envelopes go through the shop here) going to a printer rather than using a computer printer or a copier. the end result is much cheaper and better looking. i can do stuff on a 30 year old press that our up-to-date computers and decent printers at the newspaper cant even touch. Kinkos can even do a decent job.

    lol Rattler...I grew up around the drone of presses. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] I have ink in my blood. My father was a printer with his own printing company. He ran Davidsons, Hamadas and an ancient Heidelberg that ran beautifully. I spent my childhood playing there and later working there. I've set type from foundry to hot metal to photo to laser to digital. I am a graphic artist now so I work with printers all the time.

    Designing a logo is more than making a pretty picture. There is much to take into account. Reproduction method, color (spot vs. full color), useage, size, etc. Nothing tooo complex.

    Good to meet a fellow print person. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    *bows down to the master* lol you sound like my "superviser" hes been at this for most of his 73 years, linotypes, kluges, ect ect ect. ancient hiedelberg?[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img] i still use one of those!!! 54 years old and going strong. i prefer it to the "newer" presses. when it isnt working its your fault. the newer ones wont work if you look at them wrong [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] ive only been at this for a lil over 2 years, they hired me after hearing that i was sick of working for the local furniture store, i kinda just fell into it. glad a person in charge understands the processes rather than going at it blind. to bad im not terribly artistic or i would throw my hat in the ring.
