Can you design me a cartoon logo for a new sailing website I'm about to launch? I want you to use a photo montage as the inspiration, but for you to have some fun designing something that's bright and has impact on the visitor to SailJuice...
To find a detailed description of what I'm looking for, click on the link below:
SailJuice.com is a website where I interview the world's top sailors - Olympic gold medallists and so on - and write their advice up for other weekend sailors to be able to incorporate into their sailing. The website is a conduit of information from the very best sailors to your average weekend sailor who wants to improve.
The website is currently under construction here:
I would like you to design a replacement headline banner to take the place of the rather dull and bland dark blue banner which is there at the moment.
Your cartoon and logo which you design for me will help inject some fun and brand recognition into the website.
- ITEM 1: BRAND NAME AND TAGLINE OF WEBSITESailJuice.com ... the sharp end of sailing...
This should appear to the left of the banner (as it does currently on the website) http://sailjuice.trial.subhub.com/h…ges/public
The theme of the website will be light blue, but please feel free to play around with differentcolours for the wording. As you can see from my more detailed design brief here ( http://sailjuiceblog.com/design/ ), there is an Indiana Jones theme that I've suggested.
If you want to have a play with fading-out ofdifferent colours (again, refer to my more detailed design brief), then I'd be interestedto see those ideas too.
- ITEM 2: CARTOON LOGOPlease incorporate three types of boat (from left to right:keelboat, catamaran, and Laser dinghy) into the final cartoon, and inthe same order as they appear in my design brief here:
Make all three boats so thatthey're directly alongside each other, all bursting off the same wave,with lots of splash.
Remember, the photos above are to get the right format for thecartoon, but you do not need to keep strictly to the detail of theseimages. I want you to have fun with this. For an idea of the style ofcartoon I'm looking for, look at the Shark logo here:
and some of the great sailing cartoons on this website:
- ITEM 3: 950Px by 80Px Banner Once you've done Items 1 & 2, I'd like you to incorporate theminto a header banner for a website, with banner measurements of:
950pixels (same width as http://www.BBC.co.uk) by 80 pixels deep.
The backgroundshould be light blue.
Item 1 (the words) should be on the left
Item 2 (the cartoon) should appear middle/right
Please save the final logo as a GIF file.
By the way, I don't want you to pay too much attention to the styleor design of the website, but to give you a context for where thisbanner will be appearing, it will be replacing the dark blue banner atthe top of the home page which you can see by clicking on the linkbelow.
Thanks, and good luck!
I hope I've been specific enough about what I DO want. Please ask if you need any further clarification.
