Ok the title says it all. As you all know, i recently moved my blog to this domain and changed my theme. Now, i am an awfull designer and my skills on photoshop are realy limited. I know i need a logo or a banner just to identify my blog. The site is what you see. A technology/personal blog. I publish code alot and many personal things too, like pics and things that happen in my life. So, if you think you can design a neat logo for my blog go on! If i have your attention then keep reading…
Well i’ve been thinking what i can do to “pay off” a designer make me a logo. I can always pay in real money but as people say “no money, no honey”. So this is out of the question. So i thought about this. For anyone who makes a logo that will be placed here i will:
- Place a block on my sidebar (under the calendar most probably) with a small banner of his pointing to his site/blog with a small text saying what you did, for a month.
- After this period a link will be placed on my blogrol (i might keep block with the logo even longer if i feel like it but definitely at least for a month).
- I am thinking of creating a page with contributors, top commenters etc so you might get your self into it.
Now, i know my site has no PR nor it is a big one. But this is what i can offer. I know that most of you will think it’s not worth it, well to be honest, on an ad point of view, my space is worthless. But still, this is all i can offer. So are you still interested? Keep going and send me your logos/banners at stratosg2002 [at] yahoo.com. If i get more than one i will probably end up with a small vote on the readers (or i might decide like a dictator i don’t know 🙂 ). I havn’t said if i want a small logo, a big banner or whatever cause i want to give any designer the freedom to design. You can see my site/theme and you just get inspired!
One more thing. I am not a fan of ads at all. This is why i have not enabled ad-sense and no other ad-campaign program what so ever. I like my site clean and i do this for fun. I will keep it this way. This is an exception i make to show respect to any reader that takes time out of his valuable time to spend on creating a logo/banner for me.
This might be an effort that brings zero results but i thought i’d still go ahead and do it. I hope some nice logo comes out of it, or else, well i had nothing and i have nothing to loose 😉 Thanks or reading and thanks in advance for anyone that takes the time to design anything!
PS: You can grab this chance to comment on anything you don’t like about the new look. It’s all about the readers and i am here because of them and for them 😉
I’m not quite sure about you need,but I have some ideas.You’d love something simple,something pretty stylish,something artistic or something else??
Help me so I can help you!!
Oh,and if you have a msn account,please send me your mail (you know mine,don’t you?…:P)so we can talk for your logo or something,if you want to!
well my friend #FN$# (as always among the few loyal) as i said on my post i leave this liberty totaly upon you! i would prefer something simple but you can prove me wrong by creating a stylish one that can amaze me! you can see my theme, you know what i am all about so all i need is you imagination 😉 thx for being eager to help!
Take a look!
BUT,imagine this quite smaller and with white letters (of course the background is transparent).This could be just a replacement for “stratos.me” on the top.And I didn’t do anything special,it’s just a “grunge style” font.
1 to 10.What do you think??Something like this?…Please,be cruel with me!!!
well you where fast indeed 😉 i like it for a starting point… don’t you think it’s a little gothic for a technological blog? and do you think you can add a computer somewhere there? i can’t imagine how… don’t get me wrong.. i know i’m all “complaining” for something you open handed give to me but you said i should be cruel 😉 and thx for taking the time to bother with my stuff!
Well,I created this one too,but that’s all for now… 🙁
I have to go,but I promise you,I’ll be back tomorrow!!…
Again,try to be as cruel as possible!!
Oh,and it doesn’t have to be in “php” style, just pick your favorite language!
I think this way you don’t have to put a computer’s image or something because everyone will get the point!…But it’s up to you!
(transparent background,any resolution you want/need)
man i am realy digging this! i created a test theme and put it up and i like it alot… one more thing though… how can we stress out “stratos.me” cause when you put it as a logo you loose it among the other text (tags etc). but i like it alot! if you have any other inspiration i’d be glad to check it out!
hire the guy who did this
Unfortunately,I have to agree with elijah…!!
Oh,and I’m not so sure about this:”how can we stress out â€œstratos.meâ€ cause when you put it as a logo you loose it among the other text”
What exactly do you mean?…
@elijah: yah i’ve seen this. it’s amazing… i don’t need the mona lisa though 😛
@#FN$# Well when i say stress out, i mean maybe make it look bigger, or bold or something like that… but i realy like it when it meshes up with the theme… here is how it looks… why don’t you take a peak and tell me what you think… if you give me the OK (as a designer i mean 😛 ) i’ll make the transition today 😉
I can do the logo for u man 😉 I dont need those banners and all 😛
I do works for free for my good frnds 😀
