Hey all,

Heres a little design contest. The University of Tampa Paintball Club needs two logos, one for general use, and another for use on the front of our jerseys.

Both logos must be hi-resolution images.

Post up the logo's here in this thread after creation!

The winner will receive an undisclosed prize shipped to his/her doorstep. (Trust me it will be something nice!)

This contest will run for two weeks, until April 8, 2009. The winner will be announced on April 9, on this thread.

Full artistic freedom is given, but here are some ideas to work with.

Colors: Red/Gold

Mascot: Spartan

Roller Hockey logo: http://www.secrhl.org/pps-medias/4248.jpg

UT Logo: http://www.tampawomensoccer.com/images/logo.gif
http://blogs.tampaba.../utampalogo.jpg

The Minaret towers on plant hall are iconic.

the sad part is... well, we cant just go to google images and grab a picture, because that is a lawsuit waiting to happen imo. only photo editing software i have is photoshop and good ol' paint. dont really want to get sued or get anyone else sued, so im thinking for me this is probably a no-go.

That may be true. As for the UT logo, i know the club has the rights to use it, but not sure about anything else related to that.

Free GIMP Image Editing software.

When you're good at it, it is just as effective as photoshop.

Very user friendly as well.

Only one question, how should the "General Use" logo be different from the "Jersey" logo.
or should they both be the same?

Any way you choose, although i would like a fairly SIMPLE, larger 'eye catching' graphic such as a mascot, school logo, large itentifying feature of Tampa, FL etc. Here is an example of a college jersey which i think is cool.

If you are doing photoshop make it a High Res image.

If you are doing photoshop make it 300dpi, with CMYK color if possible and at least 500x500.

I hope that you are aware that this is a) a sketch (I don't put hours of work into something not sure to be taken. This is hard work.) b) shrinked down massively c) done with the intent to have a logo you can see from afar, right?

PS: I quoted you. HA HA HA HAHAHAHAHAHA HA HA HA!

At 300dpi, a 500x500 image can't be printed bigger than 1.6 inches wide without looking bad. You really want a logo that can be printed at least ten inches wide, so that's 3000 x 3000. Even then you wont be able to blow it up into a poster or a banner without it looking average. 500x500 works for a website but that's about it.

I'll sketch a few ideas up but I'm super busy so I wont guarantee it.

Wow i haven't checked this in a while.

Looks good guys. Thanks for the suggestion about the file size. I do want it to be blown up, so maybe 200 dpi would be best/easier to work with for larger images. Do whatever you want!
