    Hi, all.

    We're looking for a cartoon- or graffiti-inspired logo for SneakerDemon.com, and we were hoping we'd find someone to help us here. What we'd like is a mischievous gargoyle wearing a stylised pair of Air Jordan sneakers (as pictured in the link below).

    http://www.individualsole.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/air-jordan-1.jpg

    Here are some potential inspirations for the demon itself:

    The logo itself will have to fit in the space occupied by the current banner at SneakerDemon.com. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you could always position the demon on the ledge of a building, overlooking a city scene. We'd like to retain the colours in the current banner, although there's obviously some leeway there. Also, the "SD" part of the current banner will remain greyed out due to the default settings in our WordPress theme.

    We look forward to seeing your entries. The first-place winner will receive $75 via PayPal, and any additional winners will receive $25.

    I like the basic structure of the first one, but I think it could all be a little simpler. At present, it's just a touch busy for the site since we already have a ton of images on every page. Perhaps if you replaced the gargoyle with just an outline (while leaving the sneakers as they are) and did the same with the city skyline, it would look a little cleaner. A simpler font (something like the one we currently have) would also help clear the clutter.

    Anyway, thanks for the submission. You're definitely on the right path with that.

    More like this? I'm not sure what to do with the demon yet.

    Here is my concept, the layout can be changed on request.

    I like all the concepts that were submitted... Was there ever a response to this one...

    (it's none of my business but since I'm NEW I just think in my own NEWBIE way that the person that made the request say YES! I do or do not like these concepts...)

    Just hate reading that "Dead Thread" thangy...

    BUT these concepts were good enough to put on the side of any shoe box!

    --------------------------------------
    (not that you need this from me but I like to say it anyway!)


    GREAT JOB!:image28:

    Thanks for the examples!

    wexusjon, thank you for offering your opinion. There has been no response that I know of. Brick00 has visited many times but for some reason known only to Brick hasn't offered an opinion since the beginning of the thread.

    Guess Brick's mind wasn't really open to different ideas. No reason to speculate on what Brick's motives were for posting in the first place but it was a fun idea to play with.

    Looks like some of our ideas were ripped off to me!
