The Balloon Artistes Guild Logo
« on: March 29, 2013, 11:51:23 AM »
Hi All

I have been having a play about with a logo for the Balloon Artistes Guild, there was a competition a couple of years ago
http://http://balloonchat.co.uk/win-free-bag-membership-t4526.html?hilit=t

I am not sure if anything came of it so I asked Graham if he minded me coming up with a design.

So here is a design, have a look, this is just a first version.

Do you have any suggestions? is there anything you like or dislike?
Graham has given me a few suggestions to work with already

Rob

This is what I sent to Rob,

Looks simple and smart, is it all central? The dog looks higher at the back legs than front.

The balloons around the outside, could we have brighter colours? OR

Maybe the outside balloons could all be yellow or white and the name put onto them so the dog image could be larger in the centre.

Trouble is once you start there are 1000's of other options and ideas

but it is nice you are spending a little time on it.

you could post on the forum but then you would get another 1000 suggestions, well maybe two actually as the forum seems pretty quiet to me at the moment.

Maybe just the three primary colours should be used?
I think a can of worms may have been opened but it would be nice to get a logo and then maybe we could have some mugs, badges and T shirts made up

I was waiting to see if anyone else was going to comment, looks like no so here we go.

On the original dog design in a colour there is shading that is lost with just White and yes I suggested the White, so if we tried Yellow we would get shading and the 3 primary colours.
Maybe have the font in Yellow as well?

I re-sized it smaller to see how clear it is to read, the Yellow text may stand out more or maybe the text could be a little bigger?

Here is another update, I tried to make the writing as big as possible, I could make it bigger by making the balloon background wider if need :o)

I think it stands out so much more with Yellow, do you? Anyone?
Can the dog have shading Rob? is this difficult or would it be better the solid Yellow?

Would the Yellow text stand out more if it did not have the Black outline but a Yellow out line? Would make it look bigger maybe.

Yes the Dog can have shading, I actually forgot to put it on but I did intend to put the shading on from the beginning, thank you for reminding me :D

Ahh I never thought about making black outline into yellow, what a good idea, it does look good in Yellow tho

Does anyone else have any ideas or thoughts?
