    Design Orlando United's Next Logo

    After hearing your feedback, I have made the decision to let you, the members, come up with our next logo. You don't have to be Photoshop extraordinares, but we're not looking for logos made in Paint either.

    Rules are simple:
    • Each member can submit up to 3 designs.
    • Has to be designed in Photoshop or similar program.
    • Has to follow our current color scheme. (Blues, Whites, Silvers, Yellows)
    • Must design the logo, and a logo for our OU initials.
    • Also, we welcome all creative minds to flow freely, but please refrain from using the Disney/Universal font in the logo.

    Submissions end on Feb 12th, and the members will vote on their favorite design. The winning logo will be unveiled on Feb 29th, when the main site re-launches.

    Have fun creating!

    Can anyone recommend a free and/or relatively cheap program similar to Photoshop?

    Yay.

    Quick question: should it be color on white, on blue, or on black/cobalt? Or should it be able to work on all three colors?

    It's up to you, but preffered that it can work on all 3.

    Most pro logos are designed in vector software such as Adobe Illustrator and not a raster/bitmap program like Photoshop. That way the vector can be output as a bitmap of ANY size from a coffee cup to the side of a building.

    Lightly gradiented, the fonts (Telegrafico, Novecento, in order of appearance) offer a more definitive and sleek approach to the site's logo, keeping strong horizontality and a static-moving juxtaposition between them and the underline, respectively, the latter of which is a play on the encircling and uniting factor that is Orlando (and the central Florida area in general) alongside a resemblance towards a looping coaster track, both of which signify the omnipresent places of amusement all around the city.

    (Also, the OU Cyclops icon is prepared to obliterate the trolls. )

    I've been playing around with Illustrator and here's the first very simple design I came up with:

    I like it! In my opinion, simplistic designs are the best ones.

    Isn't the icon supposed to be only 20 X 20 pixels?
