I don't think the SR-71A would be good for an a.net logo, as here are mostly civil aircraft....  Insane

Just my opinion.

i think 500 dollar are not enough money for a good logo. usually if you contact a company for designing a logo it´s worth much more....

INNflight. If you read above you will see that Blackbird1331 asked for a logo w/ the SR-71. So, I figured I'd do him a favor. I think the logo should have two aircraft in it, the 747 and the A340, both coming right at you like in Kaligrafy3 and Kaligrafy4.

You know, I started to make a couple designs and then stopped when I saw Kaligraphy's posts. Way to ruin it for some of us bud  Big grin


Damn impressive work, hats off to it.

My only suggestion, keep that B747 head on either straight in level or in climb (in short, keep the wings leveled, no bank), it keeps everything more visually pleasing and less visually disturbing. This is because the site is all centered very symmetrically. It's just something I picked up when I used to do graphic design a few years ago. Just my opinion.

Kaligrafy, your most recent addition is perfect. It combines the 747 in Kaligrafy8, -9, -11 and -12, the background of Kaligraphy7, and the phenomenal idea of throwing in a camera lens, which you first suggested in Kaligrafy1 and -2. BTW, i like the subtle reflection in the lens, and the 'airliners.net' printed on the top rim of the lens. Excellent touches that are subtle yet important!  Big thumbs up I would be honored to have that logo adorn the top of the new airliners.net homepage!

Well, thanks all... don't know what to say!

I too know it would be better to get an image of the 747 on a straight level... I need ot get a picture of it... I will go back to YUL maybe tonight to get one better than the one from kaligrafy7.jpg, from which I nedded to add artificial winglets, that I don't like... Did you guys saw the little old logo just under the new 747? Is it too dark?

Thanks again!

The only reason I can think of for why you want a level 747 is to uncover the concorde picture. and don't touch the lens reflection! that part is perfect! Keep up the phenomenal work!  Big thumbs up

Well, Kaligrafy, you can finally take a breather! I have an excellent feeling about Kaligrafy16! The 747 is level; you can clearly see all six pictures in the background (especially the concorde); you've retained the 'airliners.net on the top of the lens and added some text to the bottom, which makes it look more realistic; the lens reflections are fabulous! Now, do yourself a favor and take a break from all this logo design! The whole composure of the logo is fantastic, although you may want to raise the 747 a bit. it seems a little low, IMHO.


BTW, what airline is that thing flying for? Air France?

Yes it was Air France.

It is my holidays, so I am playing with these logo designs... It is great if one of my logos is chosen, but it has to stay a game  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'll continue playing with the designs until August 15th... I hope that my entries successfully passed through the submission email... Is there a way that we can have any feedback or receipt from admins to know if our entries arrived safely?

I can't wait to see every submissions as I thinkj we only see 5% of what have been done for the contest!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Seems like all of the proposed headings have a 747 in them

We can all agree now that the 747 is the king of the skies (most recognizable plane to anybody in the world), but if this site plans to use this new logo for years to come, by that time, the A380 will have come out and the 7E7 will be near production or already out as well, making the 747 look a little old and taking away some of its prestige.

Maybe we want to consider a different plane this time around.
I'd rather be flying (real original)

About a new plane instead of 747:

True, but how could we get a decent picture of an A380 or 7E7 from face like the one I used for the 747?

That is the only problem... It is sad if, on a photographer site, we get a computer generated airplane!  Smile

just my 2 cents!

I completely agree. The 747 will continue flying for at least another 20 years, so there is no harm in keeping her as our logo. And were we to put a front view of the A380 or 7E7 on our logo, a layman who stumbles across the site would think we put an A340 or a 777 as our logo. Not Good! However, if a layman stumbles across our site with a 747 as the logo, they will know its a 747!

Kaligrafy:

I like your last design a lot, but it would be even better if you do one like in reply 260, but with a straight 747, with gear down, so that it looks more dynamic... then it's perfect IMO!

Jake-

Yeah, the 747 is great NOW, but 20 more years? Maybe a few will be flying by that time, but it won't have the same effect/prestige that it holds now.

Granted, the newer planes like the A380 and the 7E7 don't exist in many actual pictures right now, but the best logos I've seen above have been computer generated images of the 747, so you could definitely incorporate one of the newer planes into the logo and still get a great logo.

Your latest designs (Kaligraphy_14, Kaligraphy_15, and Kaligraphy_16) are a huge hit with me. I'd love to see any of those three icons at the top of each A.net page. All of your designs just blew me away. You really know what you're doing. Keep up the excellent work! Johan's gonna have a tough decision ahead of him.
Cheers,

A hard decision of course, not to mention, all those logos, which we did not see, because they did not get posted in here.

Here's an input of another designer who emailed me for posting it, as he has no forum account:

Produced by Maciej Szylke, posted and hosted by me!


Any comments on it? Maciej will read it, cannot answer though.

On a serious note:

I think we should have a 757 or something, being that there are MANY fans of this A/C plus I think a lot of us would like to see her at the top of A.net. then its end of production line would be easier to bare LOL

Bert:

That's what I would call quantity - not quality...
Some are nice, but:

- The Lufthansa logo should not be there, there should be no airline recognizeable.

- Some variations are really not good, especially yellow... Not fitting to the current anet colors

- A few look like the 747 is in a crosshair, not really good if you ask me.


Just my 2 cents.

While Kaligrafy's designs are "pretty" for lack of a better word, I don't yet think they match the theme of the site yet. I think they are extremely well done, but miss a little on theme. I do feel that Sam Chui's image that was posted above is closer to the theme of the site, and the use of airliners.net on the livery is quite smart also. I am not sure about the buttons at the bottom, I think they could use a little tweaking, but certainly a good design in general.

I am a graphic designer by training, and really wish I had the time to create some of my own, but I am just way too busy at the moment.

These are great but too great. They don't flow with the old lay out that the current a.net has. Would it be possible to slowly change the look of A.net with the selection of the new logo? I get really.... not cheery when the dark blue is always up. Maybe a new c/s for the website to go with the selected logo. Yellow would actually look really good if the rest were say yellow and silver as seen in the logo on reply 291. If you look at 290 you will see what I'm talking about. The round lens does not flow with the boxy out line the rest of the page has...

Just my 2¢
