    I could get another version of the existing one without the pixel edges too.

    What do you guys think?


    I really appreciate whatever you come up with, thank you.

    Also, is DuneFishUK still around? 'Cause he's way more qualified than I am in this.


    He last posted this past summer.

    Now that we've found our two logo prototypes (Freak, Omph, it's your call), let's see the next issue :

    site name


    4 options :

    option 1 : White small letters (minuscules/lower case)

    option 1.PNG


    option 2 : Black/brown small letters (+ white subtitle)

    option 2.PNG
    option 3 : White small caps

    option 3.PNG


    option 4 : Black/brown small caps (+ white subtitle)

        I would go for one of the first three, although I like the graphic idea, I fear it would be too much stuff going on.
        But I don't mind either way.

        NB:
        thx Freak, I'm super stoked to have my logo on your board man :)

          phpBB allows you to choose the form of display list subforums, the columns you want to expand, resize, invert or remove (Category title | Topics | Posts | Last Post)

                  subforums : titles/images

                  • option 1 : no changes made
                    subforum1.PNG

                  • option 2 : customised titles and subtitles (font size and/or font colour)

                  • option 3 : customised AND illustrated titles
                    subforum3.PNG


                  Is that clear enough or do we need a translator ?

                  You have clearly stated the options, well done!

                  Can we use Dunefish's font in option 2?
