This is a rough copy. I have it in a bigger size as well. I need to use more universal colors.
WGS showed me this while we were hanging out today, and we both went "oooo" right away. Very nice design phoenix. Just a few questions:
1) Did you design the box logo, and I mean EVERYTHING about it, yourself? If you've pulled it from another image you've found on the Internet, then we can't use it for obvious reasons. Not accusing you of anything, I just want to be sure.
2) Could you make a version with the word Danger the same style as "Box of" and the other way around? WGS and I agree it looks a bit funky with two fonts.
Otherwise, well done. The admins are all between this and eleven's design at the moment.
Tell me what you think of this, right now it is just a working model there are a few things I still want to try out with it but this is a simpler version. I've got a bunch of ideas running through my head and this is just one of them.
As a working model, the direction is good so far. I like the look of the box in the middle as it is actually and the black circle benieth it. The only things I'm finding "off" are the word Danger overlapping the box (hard to read and looks a bit funky), the color of the text (bit of a strain on the eyes), and the gap between the word Box and of leaves a lot of empty space in between.
Other than that, looking good, and I'd like to see what you develop with this working model.
I got rid of the embossing, moved the "of Danger" down. I also made two versions, with and without shadows.
Unfortunately I don't have Helvetica on this computer, my main PC isn't working right now.
Here you go:
I'm not sure which one I like more.
I agree, they both look fantastic. The drop shadow was something I hadn't considered, but after seeing it I think it works surprisingly well; very subtle, not overdone.
However, I also really like what I see with the second image with no shadow. The design itself is very understated but stands out REALLY well, which is no easy task.
Same thing with phoneix above, is the box graphic your own, or did you pull it from somewhere? Free repositories that let you use their images for any purpose are fine, but if this is possibly copyrighted or something, then, well, yeah.
Alright, so no rule I'm thinking we need: any "special graphics" you use in your logo, you must be able to prove they are either:
1) Your own creation;
2) If they are not, that they are freely usable for purposes such as this.
I'll append these items to the initial post above.
Again, not trying to accuse you guys of anything, I just want to make sure a potential law suit doesn't land in our laps.
