For those of you who are creative and like designing logos, here's a good one as I don't have many requirements:
Type of graphic (sig, avatar, banner): Logo
Colors: flame red/orange OR a liquid metal type look
Text: VigilCode
Subtext:
Pics : none
anything else:

Basically I'm looking for a logo with the text VigilCode to possibly use on a website. My only creative spark was to maybe use the O in the word "code" to be an eye. Picturing more of a bloodshot eye to signify staying up all night. For the size I'd say a typical logoish size would be fine, roughly 300x100.
Overall I want it to have a high tech feel (hence the liquid metal), maybe a background with 0's and 1's streaming, etc. I have no hard requirements but "VigilCode" will be code used to monitor systems for reliability and security. So for anyone who likes creative freedom with these types of guidelines please have a crack at this.. thanks.

wow... I was hoping you would respond. there are a few others I hope post here too but so far I am impressed. My only concern is I can't always use an animation so if it had to be static as well would you just not have the red going through it?

"any good artist can take criticism".
Hopefully this saying I just think I made up is true.
Keep in mind too that I honestly would use any of these as they are great but I'll try to use these as pro/con examples and maybe something more fitting will be produced.

For the first one that cowbell did, great, clean, with animation has a wow factor or coolness to it. But I'm thinking more of computer networks reliability and security and this makes me think of Grand Theft Auto so maybe would be great for a car security logo. I'd take this and try to make it more corporate classy less uhm whatever the opposite of that is. Maybe if bullet holes were replaced with a circuit board stamp kind of embossed on it.

Second one cowbell did, again impressive but too like a badge. In other words I'd have to be carefull what kind of background I put it on as with the cut off ropes or strings it could look weird or like it was missing the rest of it. Also don't like the rope or whatever running through the text cause it take a second now to process the work VigilCode and I need clear readability at a glance. This logo can be web page with animation but I'd also like to apply it to letterhead and a business card one day so it has to flexible and generally simple. I do like the crosshatch in the lettering of this one. Unique, classy, simple.

the one by Lil wilson, I agree simple and cute, which I like. I also like the grid lines as i see them on engineering technical papers and makes me think of precision which is good. I think the text is too small within the area though. I need this to be more text design with a subtle background that won't take away from the foreground.

Overall, great. If no more tries were made I'd be 100% better off than where I was. If more tries are coming then hopefully these responses hope me get closer to the unobtainable perfect logo that I'm sort of picturing but can't. biggrin.gif

have fun with it!

Ah, another nice one. Pros: simple, clean, subtle, professional. The eye is more subtle than I thought it could be so I like it. Cons: think reflection is a little too distracting, overall probably a little too simple than what I need.

This is probably the hardest way to create something for someone as I've given guidelines but nothing concrete. It's like you have creative freedom, but in a cage.

Great job so far, keep 'em coming! beerchug.gif
