Yeah, the logo we currently have here is looking pretty bad! ;) I am not very talented when it comes to this kind of thing (probably because I don't have the resources) but if anyone would like to make a logo for the top of the board (and the site), please post it here! :) I would appreciate it very much! :) The only requirement is that the size has to be 305x71.

thanks very much!!!!!! :D

vanity,
I'll give it a try when I find the time. do you want to keep the text ("the next swiss miss)? or do you want to change it to "the mikaelian initiative"?

Vanity

"The Mikelian Initiative', since it's our new name. :)

thanks! :D

I still have it on my computer, and if someone could resize it, we could use it. However, the only problem is that the picture in the middle would have to be changed. The picture in the middle (which I used on the first logo we had), I got from *****************. Then ***************** wrote the WTAworld admins all angry about it, and demanded they take it down (even though they had no messages or anything on their site discouraging me from taking it). Here is the original that Beat created:

I can resize it. I think the image in the middle is quite transformed from the original, so I don't think there should be a problem. but to avoid any more complaints, I'll try to find a different picture.

it's me again. I did two versions of the logo:

1. old picture (it's so small now, I don't think anyone would complain??)

2. new picture (from tashkent) + different type.

of course I can also mix the two (picture from 1 plus type from 2).
what do you think?

Beat

and number two

I vote for #1, that one's great.

Maybe you could change the letters a bit?

Zamboni

If they still complain you can always use this one:

Bad pic I know, but I give you permission ;)

Zamboni

Maybe something like this?

It's my first attempt at doing something like this, so please don't laugh! ;)

Maybe the letters are a bit unreadable? I think the colour quite matches the gold of the logo though.

In my first logo, the middle picture was still quite transformed and resized from the original and they still complained about it. If ***************** had complained directly to me, I would've just ignored them, but that's just me I guess... ;)

Beat, I like #2 and I am able to use the middle picture you have in that one without anyone complaining.

So what do you guys think? :)

Beat

well, we'll probably get sued by metro goldwyn mayer for billions of dollars anyway
;)

o.k. let's use the number 2. I'll post a version with a different typeface later. adnil, I didn't laugh at all, but maybe your typeface IS quite unreadable and maybe a little too fancy?

Zamboni

lol, ok, I'm glad you didn't laugh ;)

seems I'm the only one who thinks the pic of #2 looks weird in small size, cos of the thing she has on her head

Vanity

I definately think the first pic looks better, but I can't use it with the pic in the middle, no matter how re-sized it is (those silly ***************** people will whine again ;) )

Zamboni
Jul 9th, 2002, 05:48 PM
Ok, I see, stupid *****************! :rolleyes: Or will they complain now cos I said it?;)

Vanity
Jul 9th, 2002, 10:50 PM
they must have a spy on this board *cough cough*
or someone tattled ;)

but.... they didn't have any warnings on their site for taking pictures, so how was I supposed to know? :rolleyes:

Oh well, we'll find a better picture hopefully. ;)

Zamboni
Jul 10th, 2002, 03:40 PM
Ah, you can use this picture too ;) There's not that much wrong with it...

Vanity
Jul 12th, 2002, 07:26 PM
Well, the logo has been changed! what do y'all think? ;)

Beat
Jul 12th, 2002, 07:59 PM
it has? I still see the old one.

Beat

I'm so sorry, only now I saw adnil's comment that he thought the thing on MGM's head looked weird. anyway, I attach my last attempt with a serif (sp?) font.

but since vanity has already organized everything, iI guess the other one will do the job as well (I personally prefer the non-serif font).

Beat
Jul 12th, 2002, 08:10 PM
voilà

Beat
Jul 12th, 2002, 09:13 PM
oh, it's up now!!!!!!!!!!! :D

I like it, it's quite different form all the other banners on this site. the black also fits the black background of the navigation on_Mikaelian.WTAstarz.com (where you can find the interviews etc.).

and I just like marie's smile. :)

hope you like the logo, too!

Vanity

I think it looks wonderful! :D

I seem to overlook A LOT these days (dutch queen of dreams) :rolleyes:

absolutely no offence intended, dear adnil! I guess the name sounded more male than female to me. please excuse me. :wavey:

Apologies accepted of course! :kiss:

Maybe it helps if I say that my username is my name the other way around ;)
