Does anyone have experience making logo's. I've visited a couple of sites, but they all want money for it.

For example:

vistaprint.com wants $19.99 for something like this:
index.php?t=getfile&id=5836&private=0

logomaker.com wants $49 for something like this:
index.php?t=getfile&id=5835&private=0

Any suggestions or help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Kerry! I especially like the last one. Anyway, let's see if we get other suggestions before we make a final decision.

LOL Very Happy I'm certain most words have a negative connotation, somewhere, in some foreign cultures and circles, Americans are a small percentage of the world's population. It may even culminate to be one of those classic marketing strategies whereby creating some extra attention. Site's like FARK.com thrive on the concept.

Got the trademark?

FUD (pronounced like the English word food) is a brand name for hot dogs, sausages, bacon and cold cuts produced by the Mexican company Sigma Alimentos, which itself is part of the ALFA industrial conglomerate.

Recently, Sigma Alimentos has licensed a US company to produce and distribute FUD branded products in the USA, principally to sell in areas of heavy Mexican immigration where the brand name is already well known.

The name FUD is an acronym for the Spanish words Fino, Unico y Delicioso (Refined, Unique & Delicious). There are other Spanish language neologisms coined by the Sigma Alimentos marketing department to promote FUD. For example, the word Fudgolazo as seen on Spanish language television and grocery store advertising, refers to a contest held by FUD for tickets to the 2006 FIFA World Cup (golazo is a Spanish word meaning a critical or important goal in a soccer game.

Is this where the 'uncompromising' bit enters into it Laughing

If being refered to as FUD is such a hangup, maybe worth considering a different trademark name altogether. FUD is not an issue in the minds of developers looking for an FOSS application that does the job well.. concerned more about features, speed, ease of use, standards compliance, etc etc.

Sounds serious, how about FOSSforum? I'd have to change my handle.

A logo for FOSSforum is going to be even more challenging. Maybe we should stick to FUDforum for now. Discussions about the name can be found here and here.

True is that.

I originally did a logo with FUD and the word forum underneath it (but never posted that version), i'll resurrect that and upload it. Improved standards compliance and smoother styling alone will launch this forum way beyond than the competition IMHO, no FUD needed.

Exactly. Well said. I posted an amended version in the original thread.

This is classic and says it all, it's probably been posted somewhere before.

I've added the two suggested logo's to the wiki's front page. Both of them look stunning in their own right!

Any other nominations would be greatly appreciated.

Nice logo's! I'm sure we will be able to use them as well.

These logos create a feeling of secure forum / safe choice (which FUDforum definitely is). However, they don't really convey the core values of communication, community and collaboration.

Any other opinions or logo suggestions?

Hi Kerry,

Can you please make square version of your logo as well?

'FUD' on line 1, 'forum' below it with the plume to the right.

Best regards.

Frank
