    I didnt like the current color, I dont like light colors, so I made it a darker shade of blue, hence the old logo was rendered useless. I am looking at having a logo design contest to get a newheader logo for the top of the page in the near future.
    Height must be 40pixels, width around the 300 pixel mark, plus or minus is ok for the width
    and the background color must be #4A5E89
    must include the text "web design forum" together with some kind of image, preferable something with the letters WDF.
    I reserve the right to not chose a winner, if I am dont like the entries.
    The prize will be US$40 payable via paypal.com

    here's something simple while you wait on the good stuff... figured somebody had to start it off... may as well be me... :p


    Adding:
    I just realized that sounded a bit defensive but i didn't really mean it that way. I basically threw that together in about 30 minutes. If I get time, which is short right now, I'll work on something for the the forum.

    Most people don't like to be first. I thought if I put something up, good or bad, it would open it up for everyone else to shine.

    I like spongebob but i'm not sure he fits with the forum colors...

    seriously... maybe if you reduced the stroke width one pixel on the bubbles but not the text? I like the font.

    As far as stretching, the width i'm using is somewhere around 344px... he did say the width could be plus or minus.

    Correction: it is 346px

    no, no... that first one was just something to get everybody started. I've been working a few minutes here and a few minutes there on another one.

    Variation on ZKillers theme

    A variation on ZKillers idea -
    I don't have the font - this is just a background.

    what's in the middle? what's in the middle? why that's the most important part... :p

    actually it's just an abstract shape with some small treatments to it. I thought it needed something to balance it and for some reason I "dig" abstracts. Don't ask me why... I always hated abstract art in school.

    Edited to add: I suppose it can be whatever your lil ole heart wants it to be, in that case.

    I still like your font better. Your logo looks good up there.
