Go Vote Now!! - SIP Official Logo Contest
« on: January 08, 2013, 04:03:24 PM »

Make sure to vote!

SIP twitter icon contest is evolving!

SIP twitter icon contest has evolved into an "Official SIP Logo Contest!" That's right, we are now looking for the official logo that will be our one and only logo plastered all over the interwebs. We want this site to be recognized easily and one of the best ways for this is with a unique logo.

We've been meaning to get a logo together for some while and I started the twitter icon contest to try and spark up some ideas. We talked a bit and thought it would be neat to give the community as a whole a say in what our logo should look like. I'm going to give a fair warning before we get too excited here. While we want this to be a community effort and we do want to find an official logo, there's no guarantee that the winning logo will actually be used.

I know that sounds weird especially since the whole point of this contest is to find a logo for SIP. We want this thing to be perfect. Something that isn't rushed. If we feel the submissions aren't quite up to expectations or there's a lack of submissions we may not pick any of the entrees for official use (we will still find a use for the 1st place submission if it isn't picked). The undecided nature of this contest should be motivation alone to make the best you can! We want to find a logo to show off but we don't want it to be forced. Take some time and think about it.

Read on to the second post for a list of rules, requirements, and disclaimers...

Quote
1.) Contest deadline is February 20, @11:59pm PST. The thread will be locked accordingly.

2.) Since this logo is going to be used extensively by the staff for site promotions and possible production, all submissions will be acquired by Spartan 1 Project. Please know that if you submit a logo for the contest, you are handing over your rights to the image. While you will get credit for creating the logo, we need easy and free access to advertise/alter/manufacture it as an extension of S1Ps service without seeking permission to do so. By submitting content to this contest, you are agreeing to these terms.

Because of the nature of this disclaimer, this post will remain unedited to avoid confusion/lack of understanding of such disclaimers existing before an edit took place. Please check the next post for rules/corrections added after the time of posting this contest.

3.) The logo must be relevant to our group! Not only must it be relevant, but it must also be original. This doesn't mean you can't use themes such as Halo for the logo, just make sure more work goes into it than visiting bungie.net and copy pasting a forum avatar and inverting the colors. I think it goes without saying that any and all copyrighted images should not be in your logo. We don't want our logo infringing on copyright claims.

4.) With the logo intended to be posted around the web, the dimensions of the image aren't set in stone. Just make sure that the logo can be upscaled/downscaled while maintaining its quality. We aren't looking for a banner so make sure the dimensions are appropriate.

5.) To submit a logo for entry, please make a post in this here thread with the image embedded. If you have several variations of your logo, please specify which one you'd like to enter for voting before the deadline. If you have multiple submissions, please also specify clearly which submissions you'd like to be included in voting. With the mention of multiple submissions, I'd like you all to know that you aren't limited to one submission. If you have great ideas, don't feel limited. At some point, I may ask that submissions be emailed with the original file included. Please hold on to copies of your submissions.

6.) Once the deadline is reached, I'll round up submissions and throw them into a poll. For a couple weeks, we as a community will take part in voting for our favorites. The top 3 in votes will then be sent to staff for review. Once it enters the staff voting phase, we will decide whether or not the logos in question meet our expectations.

7.) If an official logo isn't decided on, the original twitter contest rules will apply. We will still find uses for your submission. You will still be awarded with a fancy ribbon and I'll make sure to use it on our twitter/youtube/facebook/steam accounts and wherever else I can put it to use!

This is your chance to go down in history as the dude that made that sweet pic everyone looks at before joining our group! It's an awesome opportunity to get involved and provide us with content that will help better improve support for the site.

I hope to receive multiple submissions. Don't be shy to participate.. Even if you are limited to paint skills, you can at least try a concept and see if someone else can take that concept further. Have fun with this one guys. I'm looking forward to what you come up with!

Holy...oh my gosh... I'm just going to put my mouse down and back away from the computer. That's just too good to even continue this contest :P

Was thinking up some ideas and came up with this:

Nothing too fancy and unfortunately, is pixel art. While I like pixel art, I'm not too sure it matches the whole SIP vibe. It's pretty much all I can do graphics art wise. Still working on it.. This is pretty much what I thought up though!

Thanks! I tried to subtly add a little of everything that we are about. Recon helmet because that's what started this whole thing and our group does have the word spartan in it.. The achievement rings surrounding the helmet... And then the power up emblem glowing in the visor. It's still a work in progress.

I'll take a crack at this but it will take me a few weeks. I need to come up with some ideas first then take my time making it come to life via photoshop.

So it was kind of a slow "work" day so I was futzing around with a variation of Seth's idea.

That's darn awesome! Love the legendary logo with the recon helmet. That's just how hardcore we are! Feel free to run off with my concept if you'd like. I'm pretty limited in my work.. I'm a man of concepts, with 0 execution :P

I'm finding the hardest part about making the logo is picking a font.
