NEW LOGO CONTEST FOR 4.13 ($50 BOUNTY)
[UPDATED]: Due to urgency, we're adding a $50 bounty
We want to make the new logo for 4.13 based on the image of a frozen barbed wire. To picture this in your mind easily here's two pictures.
We ran searches on the internet for "Frost Wire", "Frozen Wire" and we came across barbed wires. Then it makes sense to imagine the network as a bunch of barbed wires interconnected to each other, I'm not sure how this metaphorically has to do with us, but it certainly looks tough, strong, rebel, and even if you cut the barbed wire, its a whole network of nodes... the fact that barbed wire looks so cool and so iconic has made us lean towards this idea for 4.13, and hopefully we'll be able to keep this image for a long time.
We feel strongly that the barbed wire will help identify the project very easily, so with the following pictures in mind, we'd like to get some help from graphic designers of the Frostwire community, to obtain a Vector Image of a Frozen barbed Wire, preferably enclosed in sort some of circle, or squared canvas.
Let's try to avoid 3D effects, we want this logo to be as portable and easy to print and draw as possible. Just see other logos like Napster and you'll see how simple, yet iconic these logos are.
We are looking for a 2D logo, that represents the Barbed Wire Node, in the style of the Napster logo. See how simple Napster logo is to draw in any surface, and how easy to identify since its so iconic, as of now our project has no iconic identity, we feel strongly about the Barbed Wire.
The name of the graphic designer, and a link to his/her portfolio will be included on the FrostWire credits if the author of the logo wants it so.
