New LAMBA Logo design contest

Postby NoyzSource » Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:57 am

I'm starting a contest for a new LAMBA logo.

The rules are:
I make the rules.
Rules are subject to change.
This isn't an official contest and the winning design MAY not become the new logo.
Don't get bent out of shape if your design doesn't win.
The design doesn't have to be done on a computer initially but needs to be able to be recreated on a computer.
The winner will be determined by popular opinion, voting, and other constructive feedback methods.

I'll personally throw in a $10 gift certificate to a local bike shop to the winner.

In my opinion the current logo is not conducive to "stickers" and window decals or anything small. It is a little too busy with all the teeth and tiny details.
I recreated the logo a couple years ago in a vector format to help with large and small scaling issues.
http://lambaonline.org/images/LAMBALogo/images.html

So at this point I'm opening this up to the community. If we can come up with something good then maybe it could be the next LAMBA logo.

Feel free to post your designs below. If you don't have the computer skills then sketch it up with a pencil or pen and take a picture of it with a cell phone or digital camera. Bring it to a ride or workday and I'll take a picture of it if you need.

First draft of these designs needs to be posted by 4/21/2011. I reserve the right to extend that date. Get your thinking caps on and get creative.

The last logo redesign kinda got shot down. I agree that the current logo doesn't work for smaller sizes.

I know you are thinking about changing the LAMBA logo, but in the meantime; WTF is up w/ the LA BAMBA logo still up as our main logo? Don't get me wrong, it was funny and cute for a day, but at least DL1030's spells LAMBA :think:

Where are you seeing that as the main logo? I'm seeing the first one Dave submitted. Maybe you need to clear your cache. I tried clearing mine and NO LUCK, still the white triangle one.

Eric: Here is an idea, make the page check for CG's IP address and always display the pink logo. :lol:

I like the HS logo better than what we have but it is not saving any clutter. What we lose in teeth, we gain in tread.
At the same time, I like the tread pattern, havnt seen that used before.

keep the brain wheel turning, our new logo is out there!


*mine was clearly a joke

*Remember, this is a PUBLIC forum. Potential donors, new members, and local businesses see this and it represents the club.

My 2 cents.

Logo w/ tread is cool-haven't seen before. Any word from the pros?

I also like the bottom right one with bold text. I'd like to find a way to add the biker dude into it. The white background behind "LAMBA" that blanks the tire tread looks a little odd. The font also looks a little too "paleolithic."

Association is such a long word, and is NOT easily abbreviated without looking like an a$$. This isn't finished yet, but I thought I would upload it anyway

Linn Area MTB a$$ looks much better.

edit:I just noticed something pretty funny about the biker.. CG might be the only one who might spot it.

I gave the link to the student that designed it. She will look at what you said and try to go from there. Do you have any other modifications that you think would look better?
