    Hi Guys/Gals,

    I know a guy who does a bunch of cool graphics, actually I know two but one would probably make us something killer in photoshop for free. What would you guys like to see at the top of the page and thegriz, please PM me what dimensions you need.

    Thanks for your input guys, let's come up with some killer idea together.

    LOL, I saw this thread title and started having flashbacks of the nightmares trying to come up with a new logo for RnR. Before anyone asks or comments on how crappy that current one is... I agree! I hate the logo I am using on there lol. I threw it together so we had something when we launched the site and unfortunately no one has come up with anything better (paid or free) so we stick with it.

    There are very few off-road sites that have great logos. Off the top of my head I could probably only name 4 or 5 that are great. The domain name plays such an intricate part in the logo styling and sometimes makes it next to impossible to create the perfect logo. Simple, clean, easy to read and only 1 or 2 colors. Not cartoonish. The green used throughout the site design is rgb 49,255,49 for those interested in trying to come up with something on their own. Most of the nicer logos use only white for text and if a secondary color is used it's mainly for outlines. It would need to be used for watermarks, headers, banners, stickers etc. Dimensions really don't matter, the design itself can be anything except it can't border on copyright infringement.

    We need this one to represent us. Maybe a montage of small photos in teh background then Teryx Central in the center of focus. All we need is an idea nad photos for Keith to work with and he will come up with something gool or if not I will get in touch with our wrap guy Dallas in Louisville. He is insane and in the top 5 wrap guys and a sponsored by Roland guy.

    Check my lighters.

    The sites main logo is what needs to be done first. Like your helifreak logo it should depict what the site is. Designing a background and header using members images with their permission is 2nd. I use members images in the header and background on RnR and we would like to do that here also. You can make fun of my logo if you want lol

    I like it. A little complex but still good. We need something like that cool here and none of us have the money right before tax time to do it. I hope nad think I can help. Keith is really cool Canadian. Way cool. Way talented. Very giving and caring. So you guys got any ideas? I hope I was not out of order posting this, I just want it to be as cool as possible not like the mutant ninja turtle look like some sites.....

    LOL, yeah I know what you mean. My first thought for here was to stay far away from making it 50 shades of green lol. Nah your not out of order, it needs to be done and if members have ideas we can incorporate then all the better. I really have no idea on what to do for here lol.

    Thank you. I agree. 50 shades, hahahhaha. I need to get Mark to stop playing his guitar and get on the site. Jack and Angie are probably riding, like Matt, Mickey, pretty much everybody. The rain has finally left them. We will see if there are any carnage photos. HEHHEHEHE

    I would love to see working concepts. I would like it simple enough that it's easy for making decals, shirts and other swag.

    In the end...we could put it to a vote if there are several concepts. This site is more about it's members so they should get a vote I think. I still want to retain veto power!:d030:

    Just speaking for myself, I wouldn't be inclined to tell some other guy how to run his business. And I am pretty free with my opinions.
    The board has developed really nicely - just in the since we all came over. I've been impressed by the improvements already.

    Thanks for your input. We try our best. We actually want members to give feedback and voice their opinions good or bad and are always willing to listen to suggestions on improving the site and it's functions.

    Here is another logo, same as the last one but with most of the text in caps using impact...

    And one last one using lower case impact...

    Something with an actual Trex head, the dinosaur, and an American flag would be killer..

    The background header on RnR has always been my favorite of all the forums I frequent.

    For the logo I think even having the Trex would probably be too complex. I tried throwing something together using a a few different Trex heads and they all looked like ass. I found a skull image that I made into the T and it is ...uhm...well different lol, I will throw it up.

    Thank You sir.

    Okay so thought this would be an interesting take on having a Trex as part of the logo. More for inspiration to others...

    Hmm, not a bad start.. Little to hard to descipher for people unfamiliar though... The more I think about it the more having that Trex in the logo would be great for the brand.

    I prefer all CAPs for the lettering. Looks more serious. :angry:

    I like the skull head. Didn't think I would at first. The text font though needs to match

    I had a few minuted before heading out to work. I took the signature Teryx logo and rasterized it. Someone mentioned a flag so I played with that. I also added a collage too on one. The "central" part I'm not feeling. but I think if I converted the thing to a vector image I could do more.

    My idea when you hit the site...You should know what it's about from the title / logo. That's why I used the OG Teryx logo. There's no question. "It's about the Kawi Teryx." I also think it should be simple and to the point.

    Again, these were quick renderings. Could be changed, added too or trashed. I didn't spend much time obviously.

    Nice Grizz. I agree that using the recognizable Teryx signature is the way to go. It grabs attention, and makes it look more official.
