    Some further info that may be helpful to members when requesting a logo:

    1) What is your website address (ex: http://site.com ; Site Name)?
    If the logo is to be displayed on your website, style, colouring and background blend needs to be taken into consideration.

    2) Description of your website:

    Another aid for our graphics people in deciding on an appropriate style design.

    3) List 3 logo designs you really like & why:
    By supplying this info you are helping our graphics people get an idea of the preferred 'style' you are looking for. Either post small images of the logo designs you like or the URL of where the image can be found.

    4) Requested size of your logo:
    Basically we ask this to determine the graphic's resolution and what it will be eventually used for.
    Is the logo to be used solely for the web? (low resolution)
    Will it be made into a poster or printed on shirts? (high resolution)
    Do you need the final image in various sizes? (various resolutions)

    5) Do you have any images/photos that can be used for the logo? (must be copyright free)
    Finding an appropriate, non-copyrighted graphic is the hardest and most time-consuming part of putting together logos. If you have a hand drawn sketch of what you want, please feel free to scan it and post the image.
    (please keep any posted graphics under 500 x 500 pixels.)

    6) Any colors you prefer?
    Self explanatory.

    Do not ask (or expect) our graphics people to come up with an almost exact copy of some other company brand or team logo. Changing an original logo's colouring and/or text does not automatically make the design YOURS!
    There are still legal copyright issues to consider.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this. :)

    site url is jyco.co.uk/

    It is a general web directory, It offers free & paid website listings.

    The theme of site is black, Blue & a little grey.

    Logo size max 300 x 80 max

    As long as it says JYCO & directory in there i really don't mind.

    All the best and thank you.

    Just a quick try for something simple not sure about the background though...



    Or I was thinking that the text that you have at the moment could just make that look like it's engraved in to the background then I think it'l be fine but that's my opinion.

    Hmmm this is what my idea looks like. Try it out on your site and see if it works.


    Although looking at your site at the moment it does look like the text is already engraved in to the header a little. Well the 'directory' bit does...

    but check the design though & see if it looks any better.
