Its too hard to interpret "V8less" out of it.

But then again so many people have seen it, they kinda recognize the logo.

Scintillater

the whole point of a new logo would be to give V8less a new edge since it's growing so much. On top of which, I agree that the V8less is difficult to interpret sometimes. Also, this is a great way to see the creativity out there in the V8less community and what people think would be representative of this community.

Anything that you guys like for symbols.. just asking because I was going to throw something together but if I don't have any idea what you want, ir more what you would like to see its a little bit harder to get it right.. Is it going to be intergraded into this web page, or are we building a new one to fit a new color scheme.. ?

Nitestalker: that's looking good. I like it already....heh. The "8" could be a little smaller though to go inline w/ the V.

Nightstalker
December 11th, 2002, 09:11 PM
well the thing about this design is that its simple and I can fix it to almost any color setup.. and we can make white face guages really easy to.. I just thought people wanted to bring out the 8 more so I made it bigger =) I was thinking of my pillar pod when I did it =).

I like Nightstalkers as well.... in particular this one

Come on guys who else is gonna challenge him... I don't have the computer technology... programs... or whatever to do it!

I all ready challanged Drastik and Astro.. but they are to busy building the alberta civics page to spend there time doing this.. They are designers..I am just going to school for this.. Anyone have any colors they would like to see used in a different version of this ? like HOT PINK.. or Puke Green ?

Nightstalker
December 11th, 2002, 10:50 PM
I think the white one would look great on a Integra Type R =) just above the type R or just below it

REFLUX
December 12th, 2002, 10:55 AM
Nightstalker:

try using the same font size for the V and the 8, while making the L of "Less" a bit smaller & the "ESS" smaller than the L

could you try a blue background with white font, keep the insides of the gauges blue & keep the red needles

sorry if i sound like i'm bossin u around :D
jus wanna b specific B)

If anyone has a sujestion or idea in there head but lacks the technical skill or artistic ability to render it correctly you could try and tell me in works and I could try and make it for us.. I am working an a anime style logo at the moment, But I am not sure if thats any good because we still do have some domestics here I a would not want people to have the feeling that this is a Asian import only club.

guages are cool. but isnt that sort of over used though? like.. as far as car clubs go...

i like those logos nonetheless. and i dont mean to criticize at all especially since i've yet to even get a decent idea..

Nightstalker
December 13th, 2002, 06:16 AM
well the thing is.. its a car club right.. usually there are only so many things that work with a certain group of clubs.. maybe I could build a Twin turbo version of the logo =) with the 8 as two turbochargers

Holee, someone has a fixation problem :)

I'd like to see the "V" a bit more stylized, perhaps a different font.

no, i like the first one better because the size of the L is way to small it looks almost out of place, but the blue backround is phat, with white lettering premium, just the V is a little odd lookin :wacko:

cua0
December 13th, 2002, 12:52 PM
i had an idea for one but it was far too detailed and i couldnt dumb it down at all..

V = engine block. with cylinders poking out of the tips of the V.


not sure what about the rest though since i couldnt do the V i threw the idea in the dumpster.
so if any of you can replicate that or use it to your advantage . you have my permission.

ya... true true... the L is a bit small I didnt notice that the first time I looke, but the colours are sweet!

I still like the over all design...

You know that desing could become window banners for the front or back windows!

I like some of the drawings on www.speedoptions.com........ I think if someone has some artistic ability (not me!!!) to do something like that............. that would definitely cool......... keep it simple and put the V8Less name on the side of the car......... of course with me owning a Civic Si I'd say go with an Si with the logo on the side..........

I've never really done car site logos.. can't really think of anything "V8less" related. even though the v8 block grfx is a kool idea... it's impossible to make it look clean simple design without making it look tacky

here are my first 3 attempts...

mind you these are sorta corporate-ish and rather simple for implementaion purposes.

but i dunno if it's too detailed of an object... ofcourse it's not vector cause it's a photo manip. but depending the situtions......

I think the backwards 3 is too trendy, for something that should last. And putting a specific car brand in a logo that is supposed to be for v8less cars doesn't make sense. Keep up the good work. The logo makers are on the right track.

It's not bad, but that colour would be hard to reproduce inexpensively and would blend in on darker cars..... what would it look like in a flat colour, like a white or just blue or just black?

Just a reminder,

This contest closes in less than 20 hours, so please get your final logo designs posted here or emailed to mark@v8less.com.
