    Question Logo and Favicon ?

    Anyone care to help out by making us a decent logo (will substitute the "RevitForum.org" text in the header) and a matching Favicon (The tiny graphic that shows in the browser when the page is bookmared)

    You MAY use Photoshop, but if it could be done in Revit.... ?

    A logo of some sort would be great.

    I think we need something ASAP, just so it doesn't look like one of those "parked" sites for sale. however, if we could generate some interest from a few members (or their talented friends ), maybe we could get some submissions and run a poll/discussion to choose one, and then refine it from there (if needed).

    As far as submissions go:

    Is the blue color scheme a "set" thing, or could it introduce other colors or even an alternate color concept? (I like the blue, I'm just wondering how far "outside the box" people can go).

    Is there some sort of pixel dimension size for the logo and favicon? Can the logo graphic run the full width of the page?

    I'm still traveling, so i dont have access to the Adobe CS until i get home... But i recommend someone PS a "similar" purple 3D "R" like the Revit icon... But have an RFO, instead of just an R. It could have smaller letters for the rest, saying Revit Forum . Org. Then we could joke that were the RFO instead of the AUGI. It sounds like the FBI. I like it.

    I'm a bit of an old school lover when it comes to design.

    Simple, Clean, not confusing with the shapes, lead the eye very simply to the important info.

    Please feel free to use if you like.

    Iru, the sky is the limit here - Right now the forum is using the "default" style that it comes with, but there´s a ton of skins (styles) available, just Google for "vBulletin Skins" or vBulletin Styles" (Note we´re running on vB version 4)
    A new finished style would be very fast and easy to apply, but it´s also possible from within the admin interface to change all the colors etc. etc. - So there´s really no limit to what CAN be done.

    Aaron, I like the idea !

    Stuntmonkee, Chad & Dan, I like your suggestions - But if I should pick a favorite, it would be Dans, Just not too sure that we want a black/white style for the entire forum ?
    How do we continue from here ? Should we let everyone have a few days to brainstorm, and then setup a Poll ?

    After watching the Helvetica documentary I find I am getting a bit carried away.
