POLL DESCRIPTION

This is a contest to determine which logo will replace our current (temporary) Sponsoring Member logo, which members who are also advertisers at TMP will display.

Please vote for the best entry.

(The designs are shown against a white background, similar to a post heading on the forums, and against a light green-grey background, similar to our articles format.)

Obviously based on the pre-existing Supporting Member design, which is already that size.

I thought it was important to introduce some level of standardisation. This will help to prevent the website being overrun by a horde of mismatched logos and emoticons which bear no relation to each other!

This also gives you the option of letting people upgrade from Supporting to Sponsoring members indicated by, effectively, a simple change in logo colour (which would also fit with the idea of differently-coloured Fezzes (sp?) for different 'degrees' of moderator, etc) clearly marking the two 'levels' as similar yet distinct.

I know you specified 'anything up to 30x30' but in the interests of aesthetics, standardising the image size is the best thing you can do, even if you do go with a different design. The masses have already voted, proclaiming this as a 'good size', so I think you should stick with it.

It's similar to the Supporting Member logo but not a clone, it has a military look, and its rank insignia compares well to the three-star Supporting logo - everyone knows that the generals give all the orders, but it's the NCO's that make things happen.

Some may say a cannon is too era-specific for an advertiser logo on TMP. Yes, "miniatures" encompasses a range of eras and settings, but I see no reason to let that adversely affect use of such an icon as the cannon in the logo. I say let's have a specific, concrete symbol in the logo - the cannon - not some meaningless compromise. I'm hoping you'll say so, too. grin

My entry is a graphic of a cannon above the word "SPONSOR." The color scheme is a simple white/green gradient for the background with a green border; the cannon and text are black (well, greyscale). The colors are easily changed, and the graphic can also be resized to some small extent, although fitting in legible text could be problematic if the graphic is made smaller. Of course, the text could simply be eliminated, although my feeling is that it does make a positive contribution to the logo.

For this logo, I copied the one for Supporting Members, but with an instantly recognisable background colour. By keeping it similar I am striving for uniformity and elegance. And yet, when once in a while a green background appears, there would be (I hope) a clear indication that there is something special about the person posting.
