    Definitely not bad. Should we make the "packerforum.com" bigger?

    And should we come up with a tag line?

    Bravo Gerard!!!! My fave so far!!! It's simple, not a lot of ink used so if you cats were going to print with this, tee shirts somebody mentioned, I'd go with something like this. Some of the more complex designs really shouldn't be used for that, it would drive up production costs (ink!!!! eeek!!!) and thus the price of the product. People may not buy them if they are expensive. I like the complex ones for the web. Also Gerard's design would be easy to shrink or blow up, it would transfer well to various media.

    I was just playing with this, I don't think it can be used, but it got my juices flowing. Still trying to go basic and simple here! Sorry!

    I dunno about making the player smaller. If you do, just by a small margin, maybe reduce 20% at most. I like the overall balance and composition of the design. My eye goes right to the text, then the threads on the football, to the player. I kind of like the proportions, it works to me in comparison with the other elements of the design. Or maybe work up the text with a cool mouse over if this is going to be used to link. To me the text is good to, good balance and color harmony. Kind of muted, un-saturated.

    Can you take the name and warp it under his feet, so it matches how chandler youth football is warped?

    I dont know if it will look like crap or like a star..But like to see it

    I tried warping it originally, but ultimately liked the straight feel better. I'll defintely try out a few other things for you though, when I get a chance. Probably won't be til at least after the Pack beats the Queens Sunday Night...

    Alright, so I was having trouble sleeping, so I made some updates to stuff that was bothering me. I changed the spacing on the text, made it larger, and added gradiants on the text and threads to make the colors pop a little better. I noticed you were trying to think of slogans, so I also added a spot for that. My slogan is nothing definite, just a placeholder (unless you love it haha).

    Unfortunately I could not get a curve that I thought looked good longtime, so I think I'll stick with this...

    NOTE: I think "Forum of Champions" might sound better, but I don't feel like re-uploading everything right. Thanks for all the kind words I've already received and let me know what you think...

    EDIT: I just read that you were thinking of putting this on shirts and stickers, if that's the case it might be better for me to drop the shadow and outline on the player silhouette. Here is what that looks like...and honestly, I'm kind of feeling this one.

    I'm feelin the 2nd option in post #33, Gerald! I like it better without the shadow, (yellow outline). That shadow might work depending on the color of the tee but it's always good to have a copy without it too! Logo would look good on green, gold, or white background. Maybe black too..... You have my rose! :give_rose:

    For a non designer you are pretty darn good! You have good instincts and respect for composition. You may want to consider furthering this, even if just for a hobby!

    I'm not much of a logo person, myself, I know what I like in one but I'm not all that great in designing it. I think I'll stick to my posters and promo events! The few I came up with are not even worthy of posting! Sorries, LOL! Logos are what Gerards are for!!! :happy0005:

    Can we keep the G somewhere though? I like it. I just feel like it needs to be there.

    Well. I think robdog's main reasoning for not wanting the "G" is that he wanted to make shirts/stickers which can get you in trouble with the league if you are using trademark/copyrighted logos...

    I think a great logo would have to Include players stepping up this year...Like Matthews Sac Celebration when he goes all predator style...Rodgers holding his hand up after a score....McCarthy W/ his fist pound locked and loaded....Zombo getting a Sack....Cullen Jenkins playing w/ a Club on his hand....Nick Collins making the crazy looking pick on FavreIf you can capture a montage of this, then you're very talented & got the tools to do so

    Cherry St

    I took the following paragraph from the Birth of a Team section in the Packers website:

    "On Aug. 11, 1919, a score or more husky young athletes, called together by Curly Lambeau and George Calhoun, gathered in the dingy editorial room of the old Green Bay Press-Gazette building on Cherry Street and organized a football team. They didn't know it, but that was the beginning of the incredible saga of the Green Bay Packers."

    In tribute to the location we were founded I was thinking something along the lines of this (apologies for the crudeness - I did it with ms paint):
