I like it! Thanks for the extra effort in coming up with these changes.

Aros, I am a technical idiot.

That said, everything running through a background 12 would be best, IMO. the 12 being less than dominant.

Also, if you note the "Screen cap" graphic I have been using to show what a new logo will look like in the NET environment, the colors are different than what we currently have. This means, it will take more than overwriting one graphic image with the same dimensions and file name. Background images will have to be added, new hex color values will have to be changed over...This will take a bit of time...

I just wanted to make that clear in case anyone thinks a new logo is as simple as "flicking a switch."

Nothing will take place without Mark's approval. Let's make that most clear. He is the current owner and "Landlord". If he approves of the new color scheme, then yes. Otherwise, this is just another useless post thread...(You know, like pehawks' threads for instance). ;)

This is really, really good, the part that bugs me is the green line needs to be bumped down a hair and the grey line down a hair as well. It's eye grabbing (in a bad way) seeing that razor thin lime green line at the top. Also, I'd tone down the brightness on that lime green. It looks hyper-bright to me. Maybe you could keep the green/grey lines where they are if you tone down the lime green a bit. The way it underlines "Seahawks" is too strong a contrast and burns the eyes a bit. Also, those green/grey lines are very thick on the version I'm quoting here. I thought you absolutely nailed the outer green/grey lines on the first one.

I think you are getting pretty close to perfection. Looks great.

With regards to the "12" version, it looks weird being skewed to the right. Could you try centering the 12 behind the main logo as a bit of a backdrop?

I like the idea of a new header.

Comments:
* The latest with the two eye seems out of balance on the page.
* The emphasis seems to be on NET instead of the Seahawks. That seems backwards to me.

I do like the feathers in all designs.
Agree with other posters, "12" should be there somewhere.
Agree with the premise of less is more.

Good work though. I wish I had the apps to play.

What Kearly said about it being centered, but in addition having the 12 kind of ghosted in the backdrop.

Love it. Only suggestion is to make it a little darker, more ominous. I think thats how other teams feel when they play us at Clink.

Todd, the new header would make an awesome T shirt... just an observation :mrgreen:

Come to think of it, the current one would also :th2thumbs:

I understand the desire for making changes, but I think the current header is classy and clean. It looks very professional. I love it.

The new ones that have been posted...not as much. I mean no offense whatsoever, but they're not nearly as good if you ask me.

Warning, monster graphic alert!


If we're going to talk about changing the 'header' of this site, I'd like to see some more ideas from people (anyone) that better utilizes the space available than we are doing now. I threw the following together in a couple of minutes to give an idea of what I mean. Also, being that the Seahawks have taken on a more 'matte' look with their current uniform, the next design iteration of .NET will also follow along with that theme. All of the 'shiny' effects and 'pinstripe' effects currently seen here will be gone.

One other note, the 'tagline' for Seahawks.NET is "The Voice of the 12th Man".

So, to add to the conversation...

[quote="Anguish"][/quote]

I still think we need a .net T shirt with the header design :mrgreen:

I know it's been tried in the past, but I suggest that money talks, and I'm more than willing to commit to what I can :th2thumbs:

I really like Anguish's concept. It incorporates so many of the concepts very cleanly and on multiple levels.

Nice work, Anguish. I really like the style.

One thing to maybe consider is that ".NET" really is the main brand name of the site, it's what most people call the site, and that is one of the smallest parts of your graphic. I really think it should be more prominent, maybe find a way to switch the heirarchy of Seahawks and .NET and find a better balance?

Anguish's is awesome. I would straighten out the cockeyed 12. It looks to playful, for some reason it reminds me of the Mariners. Other than that, I'm all in. Screen print that on a t-shirt and I'll sign up for a pre-order right now.

I have to admit, Anguish, that you did an excellent job with your design!

Although ".NET" is the name of the site, I prefer seeing the name "SEAHAWKS" the larger of the two as that is the primary focus of the site. The message board is the means by which we discuss the Hawks.

That last one, whoever made it, is perfect. I like the skewed numbers on the 12 personally, but would be curious to see a version with straight numbers.

That last concept is money.


However, there are only ten feathers around .net, may as well add two more and make it legit.


Get this beast up before week one!


May as well enter the new era of Seattle football on .Net as well.

I like it.

Busy design but all the design elements make sense and mesh with the team design elements (hopefully no copyright issues there?)

Needs the 12 feathers of course.

But also it needs to make the .net more clear, because a lot of people don't even realize to put .net and if the whole reason to brand is to get people aware of the site you don't want half your traffic to inadvertently go to Seahawks.com because they never noticed the .net potion.

And I have seen plenty of .net, .co and other sites that have that problem. Especially if someone finds your site through something like a Google search, never reads the url and is trying to find you again you want them to clearly remember the name of your site from looking at the branding.

Great job though.

I keep coming to this thread. Aros did a really good job but Anguish came in with a really good logo concept and a great idea to better use the space. There has to be a couple more designers reading this thread and lurking. Show us what you got!

To be fair, this logo has been on ice for quite some time. I've been working on a complete overhaul of .NET for quite some time, with all new software, and vector based designs. But, it seems that every season over the past couple of years, we have been met with hardware challenges that take precedence over the software challenges, and there're only so many free hours in a day to devote to this place.

I'm loving the ideas put forward so far. Todd, that's classic .NET, I'm loving it! Neal, very cool and clean, loving that too.

Anyone else want to throw their hat into the ring?

I think the two that incorporate the "12" are the two that I like best out of what I've seen so far. I do like the old design, but this is a new era and a new design to go along with that would be great

Just got back from my trip...Some crabbing in Oregon over Labor Day Weekend...I wanted to get back to this thread...Personally, I prefer Anguish's design over mine. Logo design has never been a strong suit with me nor vector/Illustration design. I think the site needs to have that logo, or at least a version of that logo that has that matte/vector look to it. My logo stuff looks dated and that's okay to admit. :)

My stuff was simply "okay" but I think Anguish's logo/ideas is more refined on the direction NET needs to be visually. Sometimes, when you've been so close to something, for as long as I have (like with the look and feel of NET for instance) it's best to have others take a fresher perspective and approach. So in that spirit, I humbly step aside and will be pulling for that vector logo and style to be incorporated...Hopefully as soon as this Sunday.

Well, unless someone else throws in their own idea, I think we have a winner.

Good thing the same guy that made the design will have to implement it. :) Go Anguish!

Just to keep my design senses in the conversation, I too think the 12 should be perhaps not skewed whimsically. At least see a version where it's straight up and down? Also, definitely agree that there should be 12 feathers in the logo. :)

Love the idea of incorporating a weekly head-to-head graphic on the right along with the upcoming games and W/L totals along the way. I would go dark navy for the tabs at the top if the masthead background remains a lighter blue, or light grey or maybe even the lime green for the tabs if you go with a darker blue for the background.

I really dig the vector look. I liked FieldGulls logo when I first saw it. Clean, professional.

I also like the vectored graphic, Looks clean and sharp, albeit pretty cluttered with all the elements included.

Some opinions/feedback:

1) The logo seems out of place with the existing color scheme and layout. We should move away from the heavy gradient use if we are going with the flattened logo. IMO, the forum should be re-skinned to better match current the team.
2) I might say get rid of the mountain in the graphic, it is too prominent and makes the hawks logo feel 'sneaky'.
3) As others have said, the 12 being angled is visually off. Think it would be nice straight up and down. It is also a bit too hidden IMO. With the tagline we already account for the '12' aspect, so not sure the graphic really needs such a big visual cue there too. Something more subtle would help keep it clean (like the small 12 logo inside jerseys?)
4) The chat buttons are tough to look at as is, very large and bright, doesn't fit with the overall schema.
5) Think the head to head and W-L elements are too much together. To keep things clean, Id go with just one, and if I had to pick, it would be the W/L bar.

If your going to retain the feather symbols on both sides of the .NET, remember that
the count is suppose to add up to 12 feathers for the 12th man. Not 10 feather symbols.

To me, the logo looks like 102, instead of a 12 with a circle graphic centered on he 12. I actually think you could simplify it, lose the 12 (you still keep"voice of the 12th man"). Add 2 feathers, remove the mountain. Make the Seahawks.net box a bit bigger, that way you can make .net larger and fit the feathers in.

Now that you mention it, I can see that. Maybe making the 12 smaller and incorporating it inside the circle, or perhaps since it says home of the 12th man, leaving it off and putting the 12 feathers around the top of the circle? I also think that maybe .NET should be a little larger and a bit more of a focal point instead of the way it looks like it's just kind of hiding out in there now. Just bouncing ideas out

Yep, make the NET larger, incorporate the 12 perhaps inside the circle and dump it from outside the circle. I truly wouldn't mess with it too much. Maybe tweak the design elements where the Hawk eye/logo resides (perhaps to fit the 12?) and the other small suggestions. But this isn't a redesign project (in regards to the logo) IMHO...Just some refining and slap that puppy up!

I like it maybe incorporate 12 in there somewhere? Maybe watermarked or faded between the E and the T? Just an idea

EDIT: In reference to original design post.

On the Anguish design, regarding the skewed 12. Lots of comments to straighten it up.......I like it skewed a bit, but how about this: If the 1 and 2 were straighten, but curved back on the edges, like if you were to look at this logo on the side of a aluminum beer can....so that it had a wrap around 3-D like effect. That way, they are straight, but it ties in better to the overall curvature of the design. Otherwise, I really like this change and look forward to it on the site.
