View Full Version : U.P. logo signature picture (test)

I'm just trying out a redux of the old logo for my signature. (Using an image link to an attachment works, correct?) I think it needs some work, though. :weird:

Maybe it needs more "action" in the logo?
(Not sure why I put the TM there. Felt like it belonged there)

I think it looks okay, but if you want a suggestion, why not use the reds and blues from your avatar so those tie together?

@ PsxMeUp : I was aiming to emulate the old two-font logo (i.e. the "classic" forum scheme.) Placing them on two lines looks like a winner, though. :)
@ SuperApe : I'm trying to make it work in both forum color schemes. It looks fine with a white background, but a bit garbled against black. As for the colors, I was aiming for something subtle. Besides, my avatar colors are seasonal. ;)
Playing around with editting the signature, it seems that I might just go with larger text. What irks me about that is that I can't get the overall heights to match.

Try using a png to get it working against both forum colors. Png supports full greyscale alpha and not just 1bit like gif.
Of course that's assuming the forums will let u use png.
And it's also assuming that you don't mind browsers with poor png screwing it up (here's looking at you IE).
Also for the colors themselves I'd say they're too dark for use against the black even when you do solve the alpha layer issues. I'd do a gradient across them so they work better, and/or just create a 'frame' around them.

That or I can just turn off the black skin... :evil:
