Hi,

here is my logo design. I will not participate in judging the logo\'s.

The logo has a line that form the letter R and S. This is one smooth line, just like the component is one smooth ride (at least it will certainly be).

 [img size=201]http://rsgallery2.nl/components/com_simpleboard/uploaded/images/RSGallery2_Logo6.gif[/img]

Edited to add an explanation
The graphic (minus the text) was designed such that it could be used as a stand-alone logo, and it could be used as a favicon.  It was also designed to abstractly resemble a camera shutter. The color scheme and orientation of the colors in the graphic were chosen to correspond with the Joomla! logo.

The text could really be any font with any colors or any other styling.  Also, the text could be oriented centered and below the graphic or to the right or left of the graphic.

The most important thing for this logo is the graphic itself because it can stand alone or with the text.

Sajid and ccdog\'s designs are both very good.  ccdog\'s for having a link to the Joomla logo,  and Sajid\'s is very friendly and clear regarding the purpose of the product.

The name itself, \"RSGallery2\" being quite a mouthful, is a challenge to design for.

With all due respect to a fellow designer, with Sajid\'s I would consider altering the composition in some way, as to me, it currently reads \"RS2Gallery.\"

I will have a go at it myself, if time permits! :D

Cheers!

Logo propositions - My pick is number 3 (which has the colors of joomla and black frames inside which represents a picture gallery).  If somebody got inpired feel free to modify.  I did this in Windows paint as im not really graphic designer.

Cheers

I like the idea of the square.  I cleaned it up a little with Fireworks, made the colors match the Joomla colors more closely, and added a border and drop shadow, along with IMHO a better font.

I felt like #3 with the black squares on the inside would be a little bit busy, so I opted to reproduce #4, which is my favorite. :)

Here it is:

nice discussion and interchanging of ideas people.

feedback is also always appreciated, even on the name NicMason.  :-)

we haven\'t decided if the logo should match joomla or stand on its own.  so feel free to go in either direction.

thanks, and keep the ideas flowing!

I think this logo (and all the other Joomla-referencing logos) can stand on their own as a reference to Joomla.  Really, the main thing that draws a comparison is the color scheme, but it is basically the same scheme as Google or Microsoft.  If you wanted, the colors could be changed to make it less Joomla-like.  Thanks for the feedback :).

Here is an example of what I\'m talking about:

Post by: Christina on March 22, 2006, 04:30:26 PM
Why are so many people using the red, green, orange and blue colour combination? I know that\'s Joomla\'s colours, but RSGallery2 is separate, and from what I saw, doesn\'t have to be used on Joomla, does it?

I wish I had time to contribute to this, but I\'m swamped right now :(

And, to be honest, I actually like the original logo. It\'s very personal, as I assume that\'s the developer\'s handwriting. I like that. Also, it\'s smaller, if not the same size, as everybody else\'s attempts at a logo (to the person who was complaining it was too big).
Title: Re:Logo Contest!!!
Post by: Daniel Tulp on March 22, 2006, 06:24:30 PM
it is a joomla! component tinuviel, so I gues that\'s the reason, but I do agree with you

Something about rsgallery2.nl\'s template appealed to it\'s owner. I\'m hoping they find that same appeal in this logo.

Although done in Photoshop, it\'s fully vector. It uses (from left to right) Myriad Pro Black, Myriad Pro Regular, and SandysHand. The Myriad Pro fonts come with Photoshop and SandysHand is, to my knowledge, free on the Web (http://www.dosdesign.dk/dosdesign/09webdesign/07fonts/fonts.php). I could not find it on myfonts.com.
