Design a logo May. 14th, 2011 @ 07:20 AM Reply

Hi guys,
Sorry if this is the wrong forum for requests, but I have never actually used the art forum before. Now before you stop reading, I'm not asking you to design a masterpiece or anything, just a simple, few color logo. I would normally draw it myself, but I am lacking inspiration and don't usually draw simplistic logos, so even some bitmap concept art would be fine.

Basically, I need a logo for the high performance model rockets I am making entitled "FireStorm". Just to give you an example of the performance of them, check out this guy's videos. Not mine, but they will use the same size engines and composition. I have made a few very small test rockets before that achieved a height of about 20 metres, just to test the fuel composition and on board electronics. I will then make a few larger ones under the new name "FireStorm" and eventually hope to achieve a height of about 500-700 metres.

I will need the art in a vector format, preferably illustrator CS4 (14), but SVG is fine too. I want a fairly simple, but professional looking logo, something a bit like the NASA logo, but even simpler with less detail, just saying "FireStorm", here are a bunch of logos for inspiration. Try and keep colours to a minimum, as the logo will eventually be sprayed on the side of the rocket, 3-4 max (so no gradients/blends), and also don't include any tiny detailing that I won't be able to spray. The logo will be about 4cmx4cm when sprayed, but I need a vector as it will also be used in other documents like the schematics and technical diagrams of the design. If you have time, it would also be good to see a black/white version, and one with a number as part of the logo, either editable, or if you really want to integrate it, just include the numbers 1-10.

Sorry I can't really offer payment, I don't really have much money at the moment. I guess the "prize" is to have your logo featured on my rockets, and I will be sure to give full credit to you. The logo will be used entirely for non-profit purposes. I can even include you in the credits for the promotional videos and launch videos and PM you links if you want. Post if you need any more details.

There isn't a real time limit, so it can be done any time within the next few months really. I'll try and come up with some original concept art to post in a minute.

you should have read the rules, no request threads allowed in the art forum, hit up the actual request thread to give it a shot.

Ah ok, thanks for the info, I'll try posting there instead. Would I be able to post a new thread if I came up with some original art and asked for some improvements on it or similar designs?

Yes, thats the idea. I wanted it to use minimal colours and detail as I will have to make a mask for each colour, and buy the paint for it. If it uses loads of colour or detail, this will be hard to do. Anyway, I will probably restart this thread with some original art I am working on as apparently request threads are against the rules.

Wow, thanks! They look great! I didn't expect a logo this fast. I really like the font of the first one with the actual logo of the 2nd one down, but if you post the vector I guess I could easily swap it myself. Thanks again, I am really pleased with these!

I was hoping you were going to dump it somewhere and post the link, but if you want to send it direct, you can email it to me at andy70707 [at] gmail [dot] com.
