New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA

[color=#008000]Greetings.

I was wondering if there was any talented soul here who wanted to make a graphic for me for use in my debut album. I need someone to contribute something snazzy in the way of my name, \"DIGITAL AURA\".

This is what it currently looks like:

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
Your current graphic isn\'t bad, excepting the heavily stylized \"DA\" graphic in white with the black border--that little piece needs to go. If you dropped that element out of the graphic, you\'d pretty much clean it up. Otherwise, it looks really good as-is.

I really need to drop some graphics software on my computer. I\'m working mostly business-related stuff, so all I can do at present is play with rough designs in MS Paint.

Peace,

Jeff

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
I can have a play with it if you like. I\'m currently searching for a new design job having been recently made redundant. I was a design studio manager. Could you tell me how the logo is likely to be used? Is it going to be on stationary, website, posters etc?

Who\'s going to be seeing the logo the most? What message do you want it to give about you?

Does it need to be used at really small or really big sizes?

What other logos do you like?

What other parts of the \"brand\" are you looking to develop? Does it need to tie in to the look and feel of the logo?

your answers should help in developing the right design!

Craig

Not bad, Lyte!

Hey, I caught the Digital Aura remix of Jet Circus\' \"Shooting Star\" on the HM Sampler that came with Heaven\'s Metal this month. That was fun!

Peace,

Jeff

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
Wasp asked: [color=#FF0000]Could you tell me how the logo is likely to be used? [/color]

For my album, but definitely would be on shirts, posters, and bumper stickers. Propoganda stuff..you know.

[color=#FF0000]Who\'s going to be seeing the logo the most? [/color]

I would have to say fans. Who else would want propoganda? But really, fans and radio stations/record labels if I send demos out.
[color=#FF0000]What message do you want it to give about you?[/color]
It doesn\'t have to say \"CHRISTIAN PRODUCER HERE!!!\" ...it can be subtle, like my webpage (did you catch the crown of thorns?) I basically want something that says \"this is electronica in nature...\" you know...nothing organic. Gotta be technoey...

Does it need to be used at really small or really big sizes?
No smaller than Lyte\'s sample above.

[color=#FF0000]What other logos do you like?[/color]

I really like my current one...I just want some new alternatives. I also like simple icon-like graphics with stylized fonts, again like what I have.

[color=#FF0000]What other parts of the \"brand\" are you looking to develop? [/color]
Really just looking to do the \"NIKE\" think with my name. Wanna find something that people will identify me with even if my name isnt used. :P

Thanks WASP... lookin forward to something from you!

Guys...the more the merrier...I\'ll use everything I get! :cheer:

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
LOL...very cool...although I honestly didn\'t see the DA until I actually knew what to look for! :ohmy:
But would be cool with the \"DIGITAL AURA\" name embedded over top somehow. :side:

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
Kinda has a look of a circuit board...nice idea!
How hard is it to do some funky bit of Digital Aura in there somehow? Very nice. :)

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
The circuit board motif gives the stylized \"DA\" a touch of class and gives Digital Aura an ongoing, recognizable graphic identity.

Both of the submissions I\'ve seen are very cool. Keep up the good work!

Peace,

Jeff

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
The question here is, which shows the proper color contrast with the green and gold circuit board background, yet is a compatible color blend?

I think you should find an appropriate place to superimpose the stylin\' text over the circuit board, and you\'ve got a winner!

Peace,

Jeff

Re:New graphic needed - DIGITAL AURA
I suppose it could use some soldered transistor touches and such to enhance the effect, but otherwise I would presume less is more. It\'s your art however--don\'t let me put a wet blanket on your vision, if you\'ve got something toward which you\'re working.

Keep up the good work--all the elements thus far look great.

Peace,

Jeff
