Wink Simple fix for this site


Hi,
The penguin in the upper left corner of all the pages (I believe) on this site is a bit distorted, at least on my computer. It would look a lot pretier if you blurred it a bit (in GIMP, Photoshop whatever...).

Wouldn't it be a nice change?

Regards,

Jens

I am not much of a graphics guy to be honest. If anyone would like to make a new logo feel free.

Oh, I'm on top of that one. I'll see if I can come up with any that you may like.

How about this image? I think it's a lot of improvement at least compared with the current one...

Basically what you need is the hi-res source for the thing, like preferably a Psd or Xcf, cuz trying to soup up 256 colours ain't real. If there is none, I'd say #2 as well, tho puh-leeze leave the colours off the text, it don't match, I mean it doesn't bind the 2 graphical items together.

Maybe it's time for a real LOGO CONTEST :-]

Yeah, I was just trying to come up with something fast and simple. I was going to mess around with it a bit more myself. Those I did in about 10 minutes or so.. After I take a look, yeah that colored text doesn't look right... I think at the time I tried to match the blue that is on the buttons at the top.

Hey Jeremy,

I was thinking, I once was bored and came up with my own penguin or tux type logo. Would you be interested in maybe implementing that into a LQ Logo ? That way LQ doesn't have the usual Tux logo like most others sites have ?

Anyways... I'll keep on trying to come up with some ideas and see what everyone thinks, unless someone makes one that is just unbeatable...

I like the idea unSpawn. What does everyone think - another contest?

Sure, that would be fun. I am not artistic at all, but would like to see a bunch of cool ideas like that, and vote on em.
