The rules

What do I need to provide?

Your new Web Designer Forum (WDF) logo in .EPS, .AI, or .PSD file format. The logo must contain a graphic element - not just text! You must have created the logo entirely by yourself. The logo should follow a community/web design theme, and should be styled to suit the forum - so should look good on a dark grey background.

The colours and hex codes we use on the site are attached. They're there as a starting point - you don't have to use them.

When is the deadline?

The deadline for entries is 31st January, 2018. The winner will be announced in a thread in the Design Competitions section of the forum. Who can enter? Anyone who is a member of the WDF, except those employed by our sponsors.

How do I submit my entry?

Please send all your entries to myself (Jo 90) via private message.

Who decides the winner?

A committee of forum admins, moderators and 20i representatives will decide the winner and the runners up. Prizes will be given be in the form digital vouchers via email/PM shortly following the announcement of the winners.

The 'small print'

When you submit a logo you are also agreeing that, should it win, WDF will own all rights to the logo. You will be credited for your work via a thread on the forum. WDF has the right to modify or use the logo anywhere we see appropriate, even before applying the logo to the forum.

Any questions? Questions should be posted publicly in this thread, or contact me in a private message.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to all...

Jacks logo is almost perfect, it just needed to be animated.

I was actually going to animate it but this look a lot longer than I anticipated, thanks for your hard work. I couldn't even remember the table syntax for the background so I stole the code from W3 Schools to be more authentic.

Even though I have clearly set the bar high, it would be good to see some other entries.

Nah. I think we're done. Let's wrap it in a <center> tag in the table heading and we're good to go.

On second thought it might even be so good that we should to use it as a splash screen with an "enter site" button underneath. :D

Edit: And the "Best viewed in Netscape" disclaimer of cause

What is this 'brief' sorcery you refer-to? :)

Apart from what is under the 'rules' section I don't have a specific brief. Perhaps a guideline could be that it should promote the values/vision of the community:

  • inclusivity and tolerance
  • open discussion
  • a place to receive friendly advice..?

If you have any other questions feel free to ask.

However it is your site so I don't think there should be any formal brief.

So even @Jack's could win... :crazy:

Hi, kindly share a bit more about the 20 and i. Why do you call your company 20i? Many thanks.

@amaconline The 20 is due to the company's founders being in the hosting business for 20 years - responsible for starting companies like Webfusion, 123-reg and Heart Internet. The 'i' is for 'internet', as far as I know.

I opened Sketch today to add some ideas to the mix. Both have a standard and 'mobile' logo. I'm not 100% sold on the secondary green on the speech bubble logo, but it's a start.

I know we have some designers on here, so please spend an hour or so on something if you can. You don't want a developer doing this kind of work.

      I have circular logo for my company. That's cyan and red. I don't want to change that, as I have it on stationary, some labels attached to products sold etc.
       
      I do however want to add the logo to a website, with the company name. At the minute, my design is the one you see with "Kirkby Microwave" written in a gray text, to the right of the circular logo. I'd appreciate any thoughts of its design, or how it could be improved. The site it is on is https://www.kirkbymicrowave.co.uk/ I think there are a number of issues with the design of that site, most noticeably the menu structure is a bit poor, and the site looks dated. But that's not my main concern at the moment. I want to get a decent logo.
       
      Currently the site is written with a text editor (vi) using XHTML and CSS, but it looks as though I will need to use something like WordPress in order to give the site a more modern feel.

      Hello. I have a curious case of a missing footer. I needed to add a lot of text to a page so the page is very long. When I first started to develop the text the footer was still there but as more text was added the footer suddenly disappeared. I find this very strange and I would like the footer to come back.
      Here is the link. www.mala.co.uk/privacy
      If you have a look at the other pages you will see the footer I mention above. Any ideas?
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi, I'd appreciate some help with what I'm trying to create as I don't even know what it's called to google it.
      I'd like to make something with similar functionality to this: http://www.onlinecollegecourses.com/beneath-the-thinking-cap/#
      I have both the graphics I need and can create slices from the graphics in photoshop, - is there a tool I can use to create this effect?
      Thanks!
