View Full Version : Make me a new logo, win big cash prizes
02-24-2003, 10:17 AM
Look at them, ugly as a very ugly thing. You could almost believe they'd been knocked up in 5 minutes in psp.
Anyway, design me a new logo, perhaps keeping the screwdriver theme (perhaps not, do what you want with the logo) and you shall be richly rewarded with my undying gratitude erm...points.
Yes, you can have them all because I sure as hell dont want em. 178 at the time of writing.
I was thinking on the train home 'what can I offer people that I dont really want, is fairly crappy but that some people love?' The answer was obvious.
02-24-2003, 10:25 AM
And just to sweeten the deal, Iíll be adding my points too. So thatís about a total of 500 big ones you could walk away with!
02-24-2003, 10:29 AM
Yes, I too shall contribute my credits toward this noble cause. Providing of course, that the logo is good, and is snapped up by Benny.
02-24-2003, 10:34 AM
How can anyone resist now? Thats 828 points.
Thats enough for a change of username, a glowing username and this Beautiful Old Staffordshire Minature Mug (http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2616061634&category=)
02-24-2003, 11:01 AM
I'll match however many points are offered up by people in this thread, because I haven't abused my powers in well over an hour.
02-24-2003, 11:02 AM
And just to make this even more irresistible, Iím going to give the full version of Grom (worth over thirty quid or so) to the best one! Providing itís better than the already existing captions of course. Whatís Grom I hear you cry? Well:
"Grom is a truly epic game by developers Rebelmind that will provide players with loads of pure adventure, a slice of humour, and a touch of mystery to arouse the imagination. It's an aadventure game combining an in depth storyline and tactical real-time combat. Itís easy to get into and combines a powerful interface with a blockbuster movie feeling."
But is it any good?
WWHS gave it 4/5 (http://wwhs.fangames.co.uk/grom-review.shtml)!
PC Gamester gave it 81% (http://www.pcgamester.co.uk/showreview.php?gamename=grom&page=1)!
The answer is yes! So you could win that too. Get logo designing, pronto.

I'm the winner!

icon like - all white
icon like - colored
Let me know what you think..
02-24-2003, 01:37 PM
Wow, those are really nice QueZTone. I like the gears :)
Maybe a bit bigger though?
02-24-2003, 02:00 PM
Too tired to make anything good. I do however find it amusing. :~
02-24-2003, 03:00 PM
Gabez, ill make a bigger version of it tomorrow
Remi, lol :p
02-24-2003, 03:12 PM
I'm wondering if the use of the Golden Guy should be avoided in the Q+E logo, since that is probably some sort of infringement.
02-24-2003, 03:44 PM
Hmm maybe, then again ScummRev ripped off golden guy and got away with it. On balance its probably better not to use it.
02-24-2003, 06:08 PM
Maybe a picture of Britney Spears with "Quick And Easy" underneath, would that work?
02-24-2003, 06:11 PM
02-24-2003, 06:35 PM
You wouldn't dare ;)
(would you :( )
02-24-2003, 06:47 PM
I want a free mug :o
02-24-2003, 06:47 PM
There you go...not very good, but allright, I suppose.
Gabez's offer of that Grom thing almost made me put in an entry myself.
Then I thought, nah.
I'll offer my points to the winner as well, however many of the damn things I have.
(EDIT: 61! How can you resist?!)
Incidentally, this thread has caused me to click on so many "new window" image links that scrollbars have appeared on my Windows taskbar for the first time ever - well, without me deliberately opening billions of things, that is.
02-24-2003, 09:28 PM
I'll toss in my hundred whatever points, too, however I require that the logo be an animated gif.
Hell, I'll give a hundred points to the first person to post an animated logo that isn't total crap.
Here's my ridiculous first attempt. Its main faults are that it has nothing to do with LEC or being a tool/utility program, both of which should negate it from the race. Its main strong point is that it is shiny, and looks sorta like an old movie or cereal title.
02-25-2003, 04:15 AM
GO! GO! GO for it!
02-25-2003, 04:47 AM
That's very slick indeed, Jake :) Very stylish, like you said, like a movie :)
02-25-2003, 05:24 AM
02-25-2003, 07:17 AM
I think this contest is over.
02-25-2003, 08:02 AM
Pretty dumb, I know. :)
02-25-2003, 08:11 AM
hahahaaha im going to contribute to this.
also you can have all my points.. ive got like 8 or something.
p. si love your avatar scabb.. together we are a team :)
02-25-2003, 08:50 AM
i suck at this, looked good before PS decided to "optimise" it, anyway you can have my points if you win, because im only going to abuse the forums with them anyway
02-25-2003, 09:09 AM
That's bootiful Jake, simple but effective :afro1:
02-25-2003, 10:16 AM
02-25-2003, 10:18 AM
I think Carl Shutt's logo design is genius, pure genius
:D :D :D

I know, I think professional design artists should be banned from this competition it's just not fair on us :(
02-25-2003, 01:40 PM
Woah those are all bloody good. Murta, Jake and Queztone's especially.
This thread is pure madness. Cheers to everyone who's offered points, and to Gabez for offering a freaking game as a prize!
Quez i really like that one with the gears, and Murtas with the scissors.
Quez mind if I try my hand at that gear look with the LEC "purple L bar" when I get home tonight?
02-25-2003, 04:40 PM
Jake, sure. Go ahead :) I was thinking along the same lines when I made it. I thought; hmm, this is a good start, its a good logo. Now I should let Jake make something fancy out of it :D
02-25-2003, 04:57 PM
Bloody hell, you take one night off to go to the pub and then the next thing you know the forums explode! Right, I'm gonna go do a new logo. Wahey!
02-26-2003, 07:36 AM
My approach is very simplistic. Anyway, I need the points so badly... not. The contest is fun and therefore I will donate my points to the winner and try to come up with something better.
02-26-2003, 08:03 AM
In the unlikely event that someone other than myself wins, I will also donate my stash of points.
02-26-2003, 08:03 AM
LoL, Here is My Pitiful attempt...
LoL, I should at least get an A for effort;)
Hellbeard, get a lycos (http://www.lycos.co.uk) account to offsite link.
02-26-2003, 06:02 PM
Meh... I uploaded the bmp file, because the JPG compression in Paint is sucky (yes, I made it in Paint). It's probably illegal to steal borrow things from the LEC site, but what the heck: http://www.geocities.com/haggisnl/quick_easy.bmp (If the link doesn't work, type a space after it and try again.)

edit by me: thanks
02-26-2003, 07:19 PM
I have emerged from the depths of #monkey-island to contribute to this contest. But it turned out sucky, so never mind:
02-27-2003, 12:16 AM
Here's my attempt! :)
and here's a smaller alternate one...
As for the actual icon, I always thought the Sam N Max one provided with Q+E 3.5 looked very nice on my desktop! ;)
02-27-2003, 12:43 AM
Heh, I really like that one, 'Peel.
TP that's really really nice. I like the larger one better. The logo typography needs some work but that computer illustration is realllly nicely done!
02-27-2003, 07:02 AM
This one is created very quick :)
02-27-2003, 08:14 AM
Bleh, I suck at this. The banner wouldn't be bad, I think, if it was called "Lucas Quick & Easy"... :Ģ
02-27-2003, 10:27 AM
02-27-2003, 04:19 PM
Heh, thats a good one Scabb! Mine were attempts at serious ones that, well, failed. I'll upload them, as soon as this DAMN ftp loads up.
Still having problems with the FTP, so I uploaded them to geocities.
attempt 1 (http://www.geocities.com/lucastones/lecqae.jpg )
attempt 2 (http://www.geocities.com/lucastones/lecqae2.jpg )
(as its geocities, you need to put a space at the end of the URL after the link is opened.)
I don't really think either of them have been done too well, but what can ya do? Meh.
02-27-2003, 06:25 PM
That's 100 credits for scabb. Congrats.
02-28-2003, 06:59 AM
scabb wins cause i said so
02-28-2003, 12:52 PM
If by some insane stroke of luck you choose mine, I can change the text. I put "LucasArts" automatically, but everyone else seems to have put LEC.. so I'll change it if need be. ;o
02-28-2003, 02:17 PM
Ok then, so far the frontrunners are:
I'll leave it about a week for other entries/refinements or whatever then choose a winner and produce a final logo. Also dont forget the icon everyone. The current one is 32x32 256 colours but as you know they come in 16x16 and 48x48 varieties too so mess with as you wish.
02-28-2003, 02:55 PM
LucasTones bookmakers are offering 7/3 on QueZtone!
02-28-2003, 03:36 PM
Glad you liked my attempt, there are some really nice logos out there!! (I love Thrik's!)
JAKE: What would you change about the logotype? I'm aware there's compression visible too (thankfully I have the original BMP file!). I'd really be interested in your comments!
02-28-2003, 03:38 PM
Apart from the possible problem with copyright infringement I love Thrik's logo! Very well done.
QueZTone's cogwheels should interlock and get a little touch up (more round). Otherwise the "L" logo rules.
02-28-2003, 04:31 PM
I looked at LucasArts' website before nabbing the logo, and I did find this quote in their About Us section:
The Gold Guy should never be used independently as a logo. It may be incorporated as a separate element for design purposes only. The Gold Guy's pose and appearance should not be altered.
Which was directly below an actual psd (basically the source file) for the logo.
All I did was take him seperately and incorporate him into a design. I did not change anything, except for his angle. I seriously doubt LucasArts will cry anyway, especially since Scumm Revisited has used (and edited) it.
If you're *that* upset I could put something else there. :p
02-28-2003, 04:39 PM
I doubt LEC will care one way or another. If they start complaining you can put in an image of George Lucas instead. ¨
02-28-2003, 05:55 PM
Thrik wins. Not only is at an excellent idea of how to 'do up' the scene, but the photoshopping skills are also somewhat mad. Maybe the
The icon might be a problem though :/
Also, is it just me, or does Lucastones second one appear to be moving?
02-28-2003, 06:26 PM
Heh, well the LEC bit has a motion blur. Other than that, it shouldn't move. I am aware that the "quick and easy" bit isn't very clear either.
02-28-2003, 06:26 PM
My personal favorite is Thrik's also. The icon could just be the gold guy or LeChuck's face or something.
02-28-2003, 06:43 PM
Agreed, I like Thrik's best so far too.
Here's what it'd look like as part of Q+E
About Box (http://www.gorman.btinternet.co.uk/ThrikLogoQE.jpg)
Splash Screen (http://www.gorman.btinternet.co.uk/ThrikLogoQE2.jpg)
Pretty damm good, of course others could refine their designs or make new ones, the contest is still wide open for another week.
02-28-2003, 07:00 PM
*desperate attempt to save L logo*
i like Thrik's too. For the start up screen its perfect. With the lettering i put there, I think it looks a bit more professional.
The icon could then still be think L logo *wink* *wink*
02-28-2003, 07:26 PM
That variant is nice too, I still very much like the Queztone cog logo.
For good measure here are what the other frontrunners look like:
02-28-2003, 07:44 PM
The cogs do look nice. I wouldn't mind splitting a prize if you did decide to use that one. :p
02-28-2003, 07:45 PM
Am I the only one who likes bgbennyboy's original logo best?
02-28-2003, 08:09 PM
02-28-2003, 08:18 PM
i wanna submit a pic but what is this Quick And Easy?

jesus, you have to pay for attachments!? can someone loan me 95 points so i can put my mildly amusing picture up?
03-01-2003, 01:40 PM
Or you could just put it up on Geocities, or send it to me and I'll put it up somewhere, isn't it?
03-01-2003, 01:49 PM
actually all you have to do to make it appear from any site is add http://invis.free.anonymizer.com/ before the http:// part and it will appear, even from geocities
03-01-2003, 03:16 PM
Hey, the man's right. I never knew that.
03-01-2003, 06:07 PM
Thats a damned useful link WHEN THE FTP WON'T WORK TO YOUR OWN DAMN SITE
03-01-2003, 06:28 PM
ummmm sarcasm or, just accedently pressed caps lock
03-01-2003, 08:06 PM
It was UNBRIDLED ANGER! DAmn, hit [caps] again...
03-01-2003, 08:12 PM
Great tip there KingPin, thanks!
When's the closing date for this marvellous compo anyways?
03-01-2003, 08:14 PM
Oops, nevermind! Found it anyway!
03-01-2003, 08:18 PM
Ok! I've added a LucasArts logo to design (not sure if this is a good idea or not though :/)
I also slightly touched up the Max icon that was used in Q+E 3.5 - I think it looks cool on a desktop!
Here's another icon using Queztone's excellent logo...
Any comments/ideas welcome (although I think Thrik has got this one in the bag! :))
Competition is really heating up! Nice. I still like TP's the most so far. Thrik's I think is really really good, but I think the joke's been done already to a degree with the Mojo "back from the dead" site (and the screwdriver doesnt quite fit). I also like that TP's denotes frustration with the computer. Queztone's cog/gear logo is also pretty inspired. Benny I think you're ****ed as far as deciding a winner goes. Well, I'd be at least if I were in your shoes.
03-02-2003, 10:21 AM
mine appeals to all ages, doesn't it make you wanna buy whatever it is this logo is selling
03-02-2003, 10:34 AM
Is that Jade?? Lol, made me laugh anyway, thats a great one!
03-02-2003, 10:54 AM
Gee, that's just creepy...

Note: Not one photon was harmed in the making of this picture.
03-02-2003, 01:50 PM
well mines simpsle but i think it looks really good
what do you think?
Here's my attempt:
I like Thriks and Thunderpeels the best, and QueZtones' logo is good too.

Nice logo Ztev! The icon looks cool too! (Plus your mock LA.COM one is funny!)
03-05-2003, 04:39 PM
I like the artwork, but the phrase "doing what LucasArts won't" doesn't sound very pro-LEC fan community. I mean, they are *slowly* re-releasing games that work in XP etc. Never-the-less, a very good logo!
Heh heh. Yeah, I thought that slogan kinda comes off sounding like that. It's a joke that's not meant to be mean-spirited but it sounds like it. Anyway, it's easily removed.
03-05-2003, 07:54 PM
Why change it when it's true?
03-06-2003, 02:29 AM
03-07-2003, 03:57 AM
An alternate version without the LucasArts' logo.
That's it! I need to get out more! :)
03-08-2003, 08:03 PM
it is......quick and easy!!!!!
03-08-2003, 09:57 PM
!!! and not working :)
but maybe that was the joke? oh now im all confused!
03-09-2003, 08:17 AM
ītry right-mouseclick-load image and when it still won't load try here (http://www20.brinkster.com/delinquency/lecquick.jpg)
that should work :D

Type a space after the file name in the address bar and press enter.
A real beauty!
03-09-2003, 03:20 PM
Ahh. A long quest in order to feast on the sweetest juice within.
It's absolutely beautiful too
I'm speechless. I think I'm going to cry. ;)
Heres the results of an hour of me tooling around with TP's, which I hope I haven't ruined. The stuff I did to it still needs a lot of work.
03-09-2003, 08:35 PM
Great work Jake! Love the logo type! Still needs a little something though :/ Hmmmm :(
03-09-2003, 09:06 PM
Here ya go! Here's Jake's with a little messing around. Hope you like it!
There's a space to put the version number too, BG!
