    Default VELOCIPEDESALON.COM Logo Contest

    VelocipedeSalon.com is in the hunt for a new Logo. Your final submission must be available in Vector format however initial concept renderings are not limited.

    This thread is strictly for submissions and concept conversations. *If you wish to submit art anonymously, please PM me here and with your permission will post the art here sans identification.

    We hope to have the new logo in place NLT January 1, 2016.

    The winner will, aside from the (cough) incredible notoriety, be the receiver of schwag from NixFrixShun and some of our most revered patrons not limited to: Kmart, Target, Walmart.

    Obviously.





    I kid I kid - A better joke would have been the Rapha font, but that's custom and I couldn't find it using my google fu.


    On a serious note - we should obviously use a font from House Industries and maybe get someone there to do a few minutes of charity work. Fan art can be fun, but professionals beat it every time.

    The VSalon crawler was infact created by one of House Industries artists and we DEFINATELY will use them for fonts.

    The artwork however is up for grabs.

    Bring it.

    Is this just to mix it up?

    My life goal before bikes was graphic art with a special nod to logos……..but we also have the undisputed king of all this here, Nierman…………

    Yes sir I just want to mix it up.

    This will be displayed on the www.velocipedsalon.com splash page and at the top of the forum. We'll also use it for logo'd items like caps and softgoods.

    It's been a while and the ol' Velocipede crawler has done a great job confusing the rabble but it's time for change.

    My first submission will feature kittens.

    It should be a rendering of middle aged man, wearing selvedge denim, a Rapha pullover, Red Wings, carrying a Bailey Works bag, drinking a Chelada, standing in front of a Volvo, BMW, or VW station wagon, with a Zank, Sachs, Crumpton, Spectrum or 44 on the roof.

    I have no artistic skills, but that is what I would do.

    I will throw into the winners pot.......... 2 online insect identifications* by a well known entomologist and cycling enthusiast. This service is usually only for exclusive facebook friends that I haven't seen or spoke to in 20 years.


    *limited to three banal questions per insect


    BTW: I love the current logo.

    Generous and thanks for the compliment. Can't say enough about House Industries who had a massive bro-down when our current Logo was created. The artist is very very amazing in the comic illustration world, we were pretty floored he did this.

    I digress, ALL are good ideas and nothing excluded until it is.

    The swag grows...

    And what, I have to ask, is wrong with an Acura wagon?


    ...I did one based on a New York Dolls logo once. It's sexist as hell so I'm reluctant to share it, even as a joke.
    GO!

    An original Rouleur chilling with a Cuban and giving his VSalon gangsta sign. Winston didn't wear selvedge denim and drive a Volvo.

    The Nierman entry will most certainly feature a turtle.

    So . . wait . . . I ask in all seriousness. What, exactly, is a new logo going to accomplish? Meaning: what does it solve? What issue is VS having that a logo fixes?

    I feel like I'm gonna be the post that gets used as the example (as the OP did lay out specific instructions, but seems other users, aside from me, aren't listening). . . . however, I ask only to help.

    PM me if you want keep it off the board.

    Hook, line, sinker!

    I also left Audi owners out in the cold.

    And I forgot about the dive watch requirement.

    Starter for 10.

    Intention was to use the O's and axle points as a little more of a feature, but doing stuff like this on an open office floor when everyone else is doing real work was drawing attention...

    A long time since I've been 'hands-on' in graphics so apologies that it's a little basic!

    All caps Trade Gothic.

    No idea where I got that. None.
    Got some cash
    Bought some wheels
    Took it out
    'Cross the fields
    Lost Control
    Hit a wall
    But we're alright
