And why is that? I'm no designer, besides I don't mind paying for my prem. membership.. it's not terribly expensive after all.

But seriously, why?

I may be a newb and thirteen, but I might as well try! I was messing around in illustrator and photoshop and came up with this:

Also, I vote for dreadlockys! It is amazing!

re

Dreadylocks like your graphics but maybe turn it into flash animation and have the latters flash around. Like the letters are lights that are out at spots and then randomly light up. Just an idea. You could make it look like night insead of day maybe or just darker. Not sure. But just an idea.

Is it worth creating a sound design for the animated logo once it is completed?

Here is my first try for a header design. Not sure if you wanted just a logo or a header. My first try using photoshop. I downloaded the trial version and designed this.

Okay, stop. Everybody stop. There are a lot of really creative minds on here, and that's why I love this place. But let's recognize what we're good at, and maybe admit that we should look elsewhere for certain things.

The owner of the website below is doing work far beyond what any of us are capable of. Although, I do stand by my proposed logo -- you have to admit it's pretty sweet.

Anyway, I don't know what's wrong with her website, it's kinda jacked up. But if you look at the images in her portfolio, they speak for themselves. As sweet as Dready's idea is, none of the proposed images here have looked anything even remotely as professional as what my friend is doing.

And here's the thing -- there are PLENTY of people doing work as good as my friend, and they are eager to do it. College campuses -- that's where you shop projects like this.

I'm not trying to get a job for my friend. She's doing just fine on her own. I'm saying that this forum is the wrong place to get this project done.

It won't cost hundreds of dollars. It can be done for a very nominal fee.

I got five on it.

Well if you looking to hire some one. Here is a guy that did some website graphic work for my sites before. The prices are cheap too and pretty nice. He may be able to come up with something good. http://www.infovictory.com/

I just thought it was fun trying to design a header. I was thinking of trying to figure out how do a flash header that was animated too.

I can recommend Kim Phillips, wholeheartedly. FYI, she's more of an aqcuaintance than a friend (point being -- I'm not trying to just hook up a friend, this is my honest recommendation). She's passionate about her work, very creative, and straight-up professional. She did some work on my 48HFP a couple years ago, and I'm going to be hiring her to do the titles for my current feature.

I have absolutely no clue what she would ask for compensation, but please PM me if you'd like her email (although, I'm sure it's on her website).

I dunno, I think sourcing this from someone in the forum, if possible, is a very good option.

If someone were going to be hired, I'd suggest one of these:

http://www.sosfactory.com/
http://thelogocompany.net/
http://www.logoworks.com/


Of course there's a million logo designers out there,...

Figured I would take a stab at this...

I have a lot of designs for the logo. I will slowly post them over the next few days...

Enjoy or Dislike.


Of course this is pretty rough.

I like Dreadylocks' concept, but agree with CF about the execution. I could see a night vision with a more neutral palette.

I have to say I'm not a fan of the Hollywood sign motif. I mean, this is Indietalk, right? Aren't we sort of by our nature anti-Hollywood?

I've been all over the Internets and this right here is the REAL DEAL. We're not populated nor run by teenagers with their parents' handycams. Here you can chat with working professionals, stroll the premiere membership areas for sneak previews of movies our own members are working on with huge indie stars, talk to folks who've sold screenplays for 6 figures and have them critique your short script, etc. You get real, practical advice and inspiration from experts all day long. No one else on the web can say that.

Think huge, folks...your mission as designers is to sell the awesomeness of our community and all it stands for in a logo. So far I've seen nothing that does that better than our current design.
