The paw logo is fantastic. Well done! Can I just get clarification though?

I thought this competition was to design a logo/banner for the news page, not a Puppy logo?

hm.. mjg is right..

so we should enhance it to a "CD"-Logo.

I think we cannot make an official LOGO-contest, because the Logo is Barrys creation. But an "inofficial" logo that can be used for backgrounds or CD-cases would be a real nice thing Smile

So we would have a "first winner" in the NEWS-contest, and an extra-winner in the CD-Logo-contest.

Would you think this is a practical solution?
I really like the Logo of PSRs daughter (I just sat there *wow* and had to laugh about the gnomish.. how do you say.. making a joke about Gnome Wink )

I would submit to the contest, but unfortunately I have little time to work on a logo right now.

klhrevolutionist PMed me that my picture was too big. I sent him a reply, but I feel it should also be mentioned for the public record.

You should prefer higher res images. Seriously.

It's very easy to shrink an image. Like two clicks in any image editing app. Its nearly impossible to increase the quality.

True, you may want a smaller image for web display. But what if someone wants to use the logo in print, such as on a Puppy CD case?

I've been in competetions where the required submission size was 4500x3375, and poster size work requires 7500x10000.
"Too big" should not be part of the critera.


Something I have learned in my graphic design classes: make stuff like this in vector graphics software, such as Adobe Illustrator, Inkscape, or Sodipodi.

Vector images can easily be resized without any loss of quality.

Also here's a couple of standards:
For web: 72dpi resolution
For print: 300dpi resolutionn
If you see lpi instead of dpi, the number is half of what dpi is.

psr1,

Can you ask your daughter to create a simplified miniicon version to put in the "start" menu button?

Maybe just the paw without the circle or something that will still give the idea of the same icon but that's clear at such small size.

When I asked my daughter to try it, she would have preferred vector graphics, but I wanted something rather quickly. Vector graphics are easily scalable. I'll see what she can do fur us.

the green paw of Puppy . . .

Place your paw / footprint here - makes sense
more sense then any other logo

Nice to see the judges are keeping an open mind and encouraging new entries Wink

The paw is professionally done, and has potential as an icon, but I don't think it's distinctive enough to be the logo.

A logo shouldn't need words to explain it, and without words the paw could be a wolf or a puma. Wolvix has already adopted a paw for its logo. See http://wolvix.org/.

My entry is pretty weak, I realise that. However, I'd like to encourage others to submit entries using a dog. For inspiration look at the distinctive fox of Fox Linux or the elegant cat of Beatrix. Cats and foxes have paws too!

Someone with better image manipulation skills than me might be able to do something with Barry's chihuahua. I tried without success to extract the flower pup from the background.
