also for the logo, do you all expect this to be a high end colored sticker/decal? if so the colors are not going to matter...

or are we going for a typical white text and window back ground that looks good on glass?

I was wondering about the background also. I think a clear background would be okay then the text would need to be a lighter color to show up on a tinted window.
We have a new graphics and sign shop near by here i though i would go talk to when we get something.

i think the typical white decal would be best for this, the kind that shows up on a tinted or clear back window also....but that is my thoughts....(or whatever color you want)

Then you have a defined border but we don't have a border outline.
I don't want to put a white square on my window.
a transparent background with the colored text and state with the tornado would look kick azz.

Was posting this in the other thread, then saw this thread pop up - in reference to the making of stickers ...

I think we need to remember one thing here... K.I.S.S

any logo you try to make with multpile colors, shadows, gradients, etc. will cost a LOT to make if you want a color sticker and will lose things when shrunk down...

just some thoughts to keep in mind

here is the tornado one,


here is the one with guns....

I'm really diggin the one without the guns, in reference to the clea backgrounded one everyone is talking about (and that I tend to lean twards) how had would it be to get one where the border of the actual state is made of barb wire with a tornado in the center?:thumb:

Are we closer to having a few ideas to vote on? One idea my old lady came up with is to go to a votech and have there graphic design class help out.
Excelent idea...however, on second thought, we would probably NOT get them done very fast... :dunno:

sounds good, get the pics on here first then we can go from there, but keep in mind other ideas than the "pimped out buffalo" for a logo.

TOTALLY,THAT WAS JUST ONE OF THE TOP OF MY HEAD,IF YOU GUYS HAVE ANY IDEALS LET ME KNOW AND I WILL CALL THEM.IS THE SCHOONER OUT?:dunno:
Well, several of us really liked the schooner idea, especially with stacks,
blowing smoke, kicking up a tornado behind it.

But others were equally reluctant to adopt anything that could be
associated with OU sports.

So ... :dunno:

In the interest of trying to go forward, I think the schooner is probably
a non-starter.
