    Hey all,

    I used to teach English in South Korea and I still have some friends over there. As an assignment for my computer science students, I had a couple of them make a site connecting teachers to schools. Since we've been learning php and mysql, the graphics side has taken a back seat. The site is not complete but it's kind of fun to play with.... but we need a decent logo. Here's the URL:

    Can someone improve on that for me? (don't worry...I'm going to change the background colour)

    Thanks!!

    Hi Skitzo - since there is a current logo on your site and you're asking for someone to help improve it, I'm moving this into the Logo Help area of the forum.

    Skitzo....
    I went to your site and looked at your current logo..I went on a basis of your logo to present a more bolder look, Plus I thought an addition of the Korean Language would add character to it as well....Heres what I designed .

    Anyways..I thought this would be friendly for those eyes who see it :).

    Hey there Skitzo...thanks for the reply...to be honest I dont have the language skills to speak, type or read Korean myself, So I used Babblefish to translate english into korean...Now wether or not they are correct in thier conversions or not reamins a mystery to me. in the first logo the word is suppose to say Korean Connection...Not real sure about that, and in the second logo...Its hello in korean too, or again supposed to be anyways....The blue balloon is in english and the 2 orange ones are korean saying it back in their native language..
    Thanks for the feedback...Worlock.

    How about this? I tried matching the colors of your website as close as I could.

    Here's a different globe.
    I think I like this one better.

    You guys are awesome!! I should be working on the site tomorrow during the day - I hope to find a spot for these graphics all over the place!! The hard part is the mysql and php stuff. I'm new to it and there are 3 separate databases in there with separate logins.

    got it!!

    Ok... I took your ideas - globe, swoosh and everything and made a rough mock up. It's on the site now. However, it doesn't look that good. I want the swoosh to "go around" the letters - to be borken up by it. But I like the letter placement etc. - I didn't use the right colours for the letters though - ugh

    Could you take a look and see how you could use that design?

    Hi,
    I took a stab at it. I don't know what font you used and I think the colors are off too but I think it just needs to be tweaked a bit. I like the placement of the letters too.

    Ya that's the type of thing! Now what colour should we use for the lettering? - the light blue washes it out - I should't have tried that one eh...Perhaps a deep red? What other colours would you guys suggest with that site?

    I pulled these colors from the navigation bar on the right of your web page. I tried two different globs. I peronally like the blue and green globe. What do you think?
