Default My site logo

G'day lads,

I'm trying to make a site logo. I have so far came up with this one.



I just wanted to know if any one could help me have the paint design like this one.

( sorry about thie size of the logo.

Or i was thinking of having these two here as a logo)

( I want this one turned around)



So could any one shred me some light to help me make my logo better?

What do you mean by

Do you mean to have that style of fish?
Okay, some graphics advice - First thing I noticed was that you used Green on Green - Which is okay but makes the slogan hard to read when it goes over the fish. I personally like the fish you have better than the others but that could change depending on the look of your site. There are a lot of little things that could help as well - Font, Stroke, Drop Shadow, Bevel.... Don't know if you know what those mean, if not just ask.

Default More ideas

I agree that green on green is not the best idea. I would recommend brown text with the green fish. Or, the brown fish would work much better with green text.

I'd keep the name of the site in one piece; don't break it up. Also, think about wrapping type around the fish. That's what I did with my main site: www.tennisreporters.net.

If you want to flip an image horizontally in Photoshop, go to the Menu across the top and: Edit/Transform/Flip Horizontal.

No. See this fish here (below)


I want it to be the same colour as this one below.

BigYabbie,

Do you have the picture with out the text? Upload it and I'll play around with it and see what I can do. I agree with the brown on green. Maybe like a light tan. Also, agree with keeping it one peice. One tecnique used it bolding one word and/or using two fonts as well.

FishingLIFE.com

or

FishingLife.com

It'll look better with a cooler font and color. Again, upload that graphic and I'll mess around with it. To clear things up. You like the fish but wish it was a more vibrant/bolder green like the smaller pic....correct?

I like "FishingLife.com". I want my logo to be the same size as this one:



Here is the logo.



Also can you put the "The Home Of The Mighty Murray Cod & Golden Perch"

BigYabbie, be particular careful of copyright infringements when creating a logo. Do you have the rights to use the image of the fish?

BigYabbie,

Dom is right. You need to be careful you don't copy something you don't mean to. As far as MurryMonsters fish - most likely someone drew that fish and that would be hard to teach.
