Joe's CNC 4x4 Hybrid Logo Sticker Contest


Well with a few machine being finished I thought It would be fun to have a Logo Contest, I know we have a wide variety of people here that are very talented individuals.

The winner will receive a Set of Plans for the CNC 4x4 Hybrid (in PDF form)
there will be no second and third prizes. If a member, who already has the plans and verify that you do have the plans that were sent to you by me, wins the competition we will work out a deal personally as to the best compensation for both parties.


Size will be 4"x12" which can be placed on the Gantry 80/20. (see attached picture of Bob's Machine for sample illustrated in Yellow)

Please resubmit your Logo Sticker entry to this thread, and one Entry per member. We request that all entries be in true vector format and size, so it can be used for final layout.

The Competition will End April 30th at Midnight, and the winner posted on May 5th.

The Best Logo Sticker will be chosen by Brian and myself. (which will be our personal preference)


PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS THREAD FOR CONVERSATION, it clutters up the thread. You can send an E-mail with any legitimate questions to me (see email address in my signature here)

Ideas for this thread were inspired By the Gecko Sticker Contest Thread.

Thanks you,
Joe

I really want a free set of plans and I owned a printing business for 12 years. Since the response hasn't been that great, how about amending the rules to allow more than one entry per person?

It could be a great incentive to get one semi lazy guy to spend a few hours drawing stuff up. Plus I would even allow you to mix and match what you like about each logo to get one you really like.

you do have a good point, I am a little disapointed at the responce from people, I get soooooo many questions about the plans and amchine i thought people would be more interested.

So, Ok More Than One Entry Is Allowed Now....

Definately interested. It just takes more that seven days to pull something like this off. Especially with other obligations looming about. Why the short turnaround?

I wouldn't be too disappointed with the lack of responses just yet. Give it a little more time and I'm sure there will be some submittal.

Count on at least one more! :D

Joe, I'm working on several ideas. In the design world, it's standard practice to submit a range of options to the client so allowing multiple submissions is a win for you. In fact, the ideal process would allow us to run some ideas past you BEFORE the due date, allowing further refinement on ideas you like vs. dead ends.

May 16th is perfect, I'm glad someone asked because I was going to. Thanks for the opportunity, I've already paid for your plans (access to the 'secret' forums is WAY worth the price) so I'm gunning for a discount on the kit.

Thanks!

A Sticker which can be printed. Simplicity is your friend to capture the essence of the machine.

Joe
I have copies of all my logos in pdf format but cant upload them they are over the 500kb upload limit on the zone............anyideas on how to upload them? image shack won't accept a pdf format? But you are correct they are much crisper in vector format. If you want me to email you a specific logo for a closer look let me know and i'll send you the pdf

my entry idea is basically a machine name plate.

any arrangement of the ideas in my design are possible, but the concept is to fashion the logo after a standard machine plate (changes could be made to include other stats)

my simple logo idea is using rounded corners, and that notorious circle left after any pass. i think its simple, subtle, and clean.

i envision the owner using a sharpie marker to fill in some details, so that in photos the relevant information is available.

I've been "lurking" around here for a while now. The idea of building my own CNC machine completely blows me away. I've always wanted one but never thought I could afford it until I found this site (I linked here a few weeks ago from a robotics site). From everything I've gathered in the 50 plus pages on Joe's CNC thread, his machine sounds like the state of the art. I'd love to build this machine and the prospect of winning a set of plans got me to finally register here and offer up a "few" submissions for his contest.

As you can see below, my submissions are a variation on a theme that I original drew up in CAD since I had to learn illustrator to produce a vector based graphic. I just really wanted a strong, simple design that looked it belonged on serious peice of machinery (i kept referring back to the sample image of Bob's machine). I've posted JPEG samples below. If you guys like the concept and pick your favorite design, the colors could easily be modified to match the different paint colors people are choosing for their own machines. For example I could make up 5 or 6 (blue, red, yellow, green, orange, purple....i hope nobody paints their machine purple, though) to go with a variety of colors. I believe a few of these designs are even suitable for vinyl cutouts.

Anyway, I hope you like the designs. It was a great learning experience in logo design, Illustrator and vector based graphics (but I still hope I win!). I'll be forwarding a full sized vector based PDF sample to you, Joe, so you can see the formating. Is there a better file format to send? EPS?

Well It is time to announce the Winner...... And the winner is "caravaggio"

I like the Simple design with the Machine name on it, something that does not overpower the machine and take away from it caricature.

Before anyone get sad or upset, I have also decided to offer all those who entered before May 16th, 2008 a discount on the plans for your hard work in your design, which i may make a screen saver or possibly use in a Mach3 screen design, you never know. The Price for these people will be 50.00 for the plans which are normally 100.00.

to get the 50.00 price just email me, (e-mail not message here) your request and also include your user name here and your entry post #.

Here are the two which i will ask him to combine into one design.

Thanks again,
Joe.

YEA!

thanks for picking my design and thanks to all you guys (or you GUY) out there who were pulling for my logo(s). i guess it pays to learn illustrator.

Joe, from the two you'd like combined i'm guessing you like the grey "CNC" with "JOE'S 4x4 HYBRID" written across it? I can do that and should be able to get you the vector version tomorrow (is PDF okay?). the link to your email in the first post in this thread doesnt work for me. can you PM that along with any other directions?

thanks again. I'm definately looking forward to getting these plans in hand and hopefully sooner than later getting this thing up and running (and then putting this sticker on it!). I'm going to have a lot to learn!

EDIT: i just realised that you have an email address listed under your profile. i guess i can just use that to contact you. sorry, i'm new here and still learning how this forum works...

How does this look, but instead of white back ground, it will match the 80/20 color and the CNC can be made to match the color of the the actual machine. This one is a little big, but just to see how it looks.
