So I haven't even given it a go yet, but with a busy schedule on for the next few weeks I thought I would give everyone a shot at this.

The Vookcast needs a new logo, we got a new cast on it and the Wii isn't the main console anymore. The logo served us well for these past 5 years but its time to move on!

Now when I say logo I'm talking about not only the logo, but also like the album artwork that would appear in iTunes and on your MP3 Players. So it needs to be square to start with (nice and big) but also be able to be worked around and made different sizes for the homepage image (widescreen) and in case we ever get featured on iTunes!

However there are some rules;

- Can't use Nintendo Imagery

So can't just stick in Mario in there, a Pokemon or the Nintendo logo for example. However things like the shape of consoles, shape of stars, coins and items from the Mario universe could be used.

- Don't use anything Apple

iPods and what not. None of it.

- Must be readable at any size

So shouldn't have a lot of text in it and if shrunk should still be able to tell everything about just by glancing. Oh look a Nintendo Podcast!

- Bright

Take a look at the top podcasts on iTunes, they all have simple and clean icons that can be read at any size but also look nice and bright.

This is the Vookcast logo, not Vooks. It doesn't have to be in the sites colours (blues, silver, black) could be anything, could be 'funky' and curvy and the opposite of the sites design. Basically we want it to look awesome. Specific huh!

Maybe you guys could all work together?

If no one is keen I'll give it a look in before the next episode.

sorry it's taking so long though it's only one rough design for now. I wasn't too sure on what was meant by using "shape" of stars coins. is it more like a silhouette of the object or a generic shape that resembles it close enough? anyway, more of a retro look here, though will throw up more designs up later if necessary. :)

I think it'd be good without the Australian flag/silhouette.

I like the retro vibe, but dunno about the flag/map... Maybe you could do something like put the Southern Cross in as the 1up-shroom's markings?

I like the idea, I'm with popolopolous about the flag. Probably don't need that in there. Unfortunately I don't think we can use the southern cross anymore, the bogans have taken it as their symbol of racism :/

Also I think it looks a bit dark, needs a contrasting colour like an orange with white for the font. Perhaps a non-retro style font.

The symbols are 'probably' fine but could be more stylised so they're not sprites.

Happy to talk with you about it more on MSN when you got time.

Funny that, because I was thinking the same thing...(and adding to vook's post)

Big fan of the first image.

thanks man

at the time of designing I was also thinking that. or similarly replacing the aussie stars with starmans etc. will look into it. :)

one thing that always got on my mind was the too much patriotism feel going on. That said, I'm happy to move away from it and just keep the Aus country/map/island/shape.

i'll be making more designs with different colours as you said, it does feel a lil' dark or for me, too monotone. the text was there more for a filler. so no worries with changing it.

any more design suggestion are most welcome.

Sorry for the late reply to new designs.

There's just soo many ways to go about doing this, that I just laid a few base designs down, and hoping to branch off to a final design. So fellow member, is there anything you would like to comment on, add etc?

Basically, what fonts do you think look great. The type of images you'd think would work. How far can we go with the design or images used to make it look distinctive. Most of these images are just props. I can re-create my own when we decide on a final design.

Got a laugh at the one with Vook at the mic. I like the pixel Aus map ones!

I'm actually digging the ROB one for some reason, looks nice and simple. Plus has a nice little Retro Touch to it.
