Mahmood

We need a logo of our site. Who can design it? It should have cricket ball, may be bat, maybe stumps, maybe one/some cricketers... Definitly a tiger... then "BanlgaCricket.com"....and it should have a subtitle "Where True Tiger Fans Belong".

We need it as soon as possible. Can anyone help? Please post it here or email it to Rajputro@banglacricket.com/Tehsin@banglacricket.com.

The logo should be about 100-150 pixells height and no more than 300-400 pixells wide.
Thanks.

I like Ehsan's simple looking one that was posted on 25-10-2003 at 09:11 PM.

The one with the ball and the two bells. The test on where true tiger fans belong could be simpler.

Sham
October 26, 2003, 12:51 AM
Shouldn't it be:

Where True Tigers' Fans Belong?

I like Raan bhai's one. But can we try having that one angry looking tiger in the background instead of the three tiger cubs. Thats too cute. We need to make the tiger look more menacing. Why don't you try that Raana bhai and lets see if it looks good or not.

Mahmood
October 26, 2003, 03:11 AM
Whatever the logo we choose, we will stick to it for a long time. BCB changes logo rapidly. And also, since we are not associated with BCB ("Independent Bangladesh Cricket" is there to make that clear), it is better to stay away from it.

Nasif
October 26, 2003, 03:20 AM
Raj bhai yours one looks pretty good. But you might want to increase the thickness of the font "where true tiger fans belong". This will increase the visibility of the text.

Mahmood
October 26, 2003, 03:47 AM
You know something, I did not save the psd file. So, this is as it is or I have to build the thing all over again which took me an hour.

Masr's photo is so irresistable. Logo would look even better with it.

Sham
October 26, 2003, 04:24 AM
That looks good. Two suggestions:

1. Get rid of the "independent bangladesh cricket" thing from on top. We don't need that. Also, the fire is unecessary. We can do away with that as well. Otherwise it looks great. However, we need to decide whether it should be Tiger or Tigers'.

Essential:

1. A prominent Tiger Ball.
2. Some action pics in the background.
3. Title
4. Slogan (Title & Slogan to reflect our Flag colors)

Auxilary:
1. Stumps
2. Bat

Possible Action Pics:
1. Masri's Famous Action
2. Aftab's Diving Catch
3. Rafiqul Moments
4. Batting Drives from Bashar & Likes

October 27, 2003, 10:35 AM
To begin with I must say thank you very much and congratulations to rajputro, ehsan, orpheus and radicalsami. You guys put on monumental displays of creativity and courage. Increasingly it is becoming harder and harder to pick one. Make no mistake, even though only one will be picked up in the end, all of you guys are already winners. I salute you for your great effort, time, creativity and enthusiasm.

Others might differ with me, and I expect it to be the case, here's my critical analysis of the logos in general so far.

Tiger ball selection is very good by the most. It's placement is vital for the final outlook. Being already prominent by itself, placing it in the middle only serve to restrict the visual field. It's probable best placement is the extreme upper left corner as thoughtfully used by raj. Raj's font and color selection for the title is telling. But his slogan's color is the weakest part of his lone logo. His otherwise beautiful background becomes somewhat clustered at the left.

Ehsan's great logos suffer most by three elements. Ball placement goes first. Second one is the title font effects. And the last in my view is the rafiq's still picture at the left which seems to have dumpen the glory of other background elements. Slogan and the rest of the background are his best. His are the best individual items. Little more tweak might take the logo home.

Radicalsami's ambitious glowing effect and the ball placement is discreminatory to the other parts. A great background is vastly hidden by these two. Glowing elements take more space and also push the rest far behind. It's a no no if not used judiciously and meticilously.

Orpheus' simplicity speaks for itself. He made a super background only to be hurt by the font usage as well as by the ball itself. His insight into the root of our cricketmania is beautifully characterized.

The criticism is by no means demeaning. Criticizing is easy, making logo is not. You guys have already spent significant amount of time and energy for this. I think, expressing views and opinion in this regard will bring the best out of the bests. Someone said, artist are never satisfied. Be unsatisfied, be demanding. It will only help the cause in addition to help incorporate viewer's prospect into the artist's imagery. Again my deep hearted salute goes to you guys.

Paco, where are thou?

Sami
October 27, 2003, 10:47 AM
Thanx a lot for the comments chinaman... really appreciated... I know I am little weak towards glow effect as wud be evident from most of my other digiart works... Maybe I will try something new later... but study and work calls kinda restricts my time from today onwards :( :(

Chinaman bhai great analysis. I had some other things in my mind placing rafique's still picture; for example when it is the fire wickets, that reflects rafique's bowling and shows how convincingly he can take wickets. Whn it was the tiger-ball placed above rafique's still pic that spoke by itself about the tiger. I do know that the placement were not good at times.

Are we in a stage now to go for a poll or are we sill waiting for some other people to come up with any new things?

Orpheus
October 27, 2003, 09:50 PM
But I still don't like ppl using the wrong tiger. It's not Royal Bengal Tiger.

Chinaman you can be a very good politician, if not one already :P

No boasting...but I still like mine more than you guys'. You ppl suck and I thought I was the worst graphics software user in the world :D I am still wondering how the hell ehsan made that template! It's like pro to zero.

First of all I had no idea what the people wants. At the first place I thought we need a very simple logo, just like the current one, was confused what to do with the background then too many elements in the logo blowed off my head, which ended up in a poor place ment of the elements. The last factor was the time. You didn't had to do a lot of work to get your logo up as you probably had to cut two pictures, if you take a look at my logos you'll see how many I had to. Trust me deigning your own template when you know what you want is very easy than to design a logo for someone else.

Sham
October 27, 2003, 11:09 PM
Orpheus might actually be right about the tiger. The tiger is probably not a Bengal Tiger. We should find a similar looking Bengal Tiger (Panthera Tigris Tigris).

Chinaman is right. Everyone should be proud of their effort. Whichever one we choose in the end, I think it will be influenced by some part or another by all of us. So its really a team effort.

Right now, I think the choice is between Rajputro's ones which are beautiful in their simplicity and Nasifkhan's second or third one. NK, I agree with radicalsami's suggestion of putting a flag on the second one. And lets try to find another tiger perhaps. I'll try to search for one. We need a real bengali baagh mama.

Why not try the second one with the following changes:

1. Ehsan's tiger!
2. The flag. (like the third one)
3. The big fonts for Where True Tigers' Fans Belong. (Like in the fourth one)

Ok here is what I could come up in 2 hours. I am not that proud of the end result, with your comments I might be able to do little better.

I followed china bhai's requests about images. I made it bigger than requested size, just for viewing purposes. Size can be reduced later. Both of these are same thing with just two different fonts. Let me know what guys want to see modified.

In my review of myself (in regard to width to height ratio), I think its bit too much high in height. I could cut off bashar and masri's hand a bit to reduce height. I think the width is ok.

If anyone wants to work with these files I can send them as Photoshop PSD or Paint Shop Pro PSP format. Let me know.

Here is the first one (size is about 130KB each).

Second one..

Tehsin
October 28, 2003, 10:34 AM
Anything that's devisable by 15x4 (300x80 being the size that would be good) is good. The lenght needs to be around 260-300 and the height needs to be around 60-80 and.

The logo on top (the old one by me) is 279x64.

Sorry about my graphic knowledge (Did someone say he was the worst? hah)
I cut your pic to visualise the banner.
Could you be kind enough to make the following modifications?

1. Make the Ball a little smaller or push it upwards & right (ok if get cut at the corner)
2. Cut arround 25 px from either side of the middle tiger
3. Move Masri closer to the ball.
Place aftab at the middle
4. Move Bashar to the right & a little upwards.
5. Use fonts from Raj or Ehsan

Please email me (chinaman@banglacricket.com) a psd copy if it not much trouble.

Nasif
October 29, 2003, 04:30 PM
1. Make the Ball a little smaller or push it upwards & right (ok if get cut at the corner)
OK.

2. Cut arround 25 px from either side of the middle tiger
You mean I should move the tiger? If I cut middle tiger from sides the head would seem chopped off. Please explain.

3. Move Masri closer to the ball.
Place aftab at the middle
You want Masri to the right and aftab in the middle?

4. Move Bashar to the right & a little upwards.
Now I am confused. If Bashar is at the right where is Masri?

5. Use fonts from Raj or Ehsan
OK.

chinaman
October 29, 2003, 04:51 PM
Relative Positions: Bashar=left, Aftab=middle, Masri=Right, TigerBall=Extreme Right and Middle Tiger=Middle.
Now, look at the picture, there is a gap of arround 25px between bashar and the Middle Tiger, I like to reduce the gap to make the width of the banner at 300px. Plus, when you'll place Masri next to the TigerBall, there will be a similar gap between Masri and the Middle Tiger; and I want to reduce this gap a little as well. Finally you can place Aftab at the middle. How can I express my appreciation?

For some reason I don't like the look of your Bhag. It looks like it is ashamed of already loosing 24 tests. Aggression to win is distictly absent from it's face. Or is it suffering from depression? I don't know, Ehsan. The height is much higher than tehsin's recommendation.

Ehsan
October 30, 2003, 10:02 AM
Replacing tiger is just a matter of second but this was recomended by Sham bhai as I couldn't find any agressive looking bangla 'bagh'. I can reduce the height if needed. I would really appreciate if you can get me a pic of agressive bangla 'bagh'.

chinaman

Our mascot is the Bengal Tiger! Isn't it kind of silly to put a Sumatran Tiger on our logo? If kind of like putting a yorkshire terrier on the logo of a site dedicated to a team with a bulldog mascot!

You are right Sham. But that was a national thing and our's only a site banner. Besides, it's hard to find a good looking bengal tiger which shows the aggression and will to fight.

I followed china bhai's requests about images. I made it bigger than requested size, just for viewing purposes. Size can be reduced later. Both of these are same thing with just two different fonts. Let me know what guys want to see modified.

In my review of myself (in regard to width to height ratio), I think its bit too much high in height. I could cut off bashar and masri's hand a bit to reduce height. I think the width is ok.

If anyone wants to work with these files I can send them as Photoshop PSD or Paint Shop Pro PSP format. Let me know.

Here is the first one (size is about 130KB each).

this one is also good one! i think it would be better off if there is stumps and ball with 'banglar bagh' hitting the stumps and norail express is in action. it's my opinion but it would work..;)

First time ever I worked with layers. I know it is nowhere near other banners in it's look and quality, but, hey, this is my contribution, and it was fun. Had serious trouble with the fonts. Wanted to add borders arround the banner either completely or at two corners to uplift the look but failed miserably. I still don't know how to isolate a round object. I owe it all to Ehsan. He was kind enough to send me his psd file. Thank you Ehsan. So, if anyone wants my psd, feel free to ask.

Good job Chinaman bhai. You owe nothing to me, everything belongs to Allah and shall return to Him.

From long time I wanted to express my opinion on the logos. Frankly to tell all of you, I don't like the idea of having a bacground pictures of our players for the logo. It looks more childish (no offence to anyone, bear with me :) ). Although I had it too, was just made as you peeps seem to like that better. Logo shouldn't carry any picture of our great players, it should rather contain:
1) BD flag
2) Title
3) Slogan
4) Tiger on a ball is more preferable
5) Anything to make feel the presence of a tiger; something like the yellow-black curves lines (skin of a tiger)
6) The last thing would be to add stumps/bails/bat.

That is all I think to make it look more professional.

People have put enough effort into this; I really appreciate all the efforts; all logos were great. And yes don't forget its a team work.

i like ehsans idea!..i am dorbash..so listen to me..hehehe....howeva, i think ehsans idea is nice . players will change by time but logo will remain same. we (wish) might have better player coming in future. so let's not be unfair to our future tigers( thou most of the times bangladeshi tigers become cat and try to catch fish rather then catching rat :mad: ).

I had the impression that this whole excersise was not for logo but for a banner that will be used for BanglaCricket advertisement on other websites.

If it was for a real logo then none of the proposed designs will be any good. Logo has to be small and to the point. Look at ICC logo. That is one amazing design.

Ehsan
October 31, 2003, 09:33 PM
I think the size w=267 pixels and h=77 pixels is fine for a logo. The current one is w= 279 pixels and h=64 pixels.

Care to think of something without the players?

Hi guys, one last request before I finalize the logo. The logo text should either read

Where True Tigers' fans belong

or

Where True Tigers fans belong

Sham's explanation: Whether we put the apostrophe or not, there must be an S at the end of tiger because our mascot is a plural word. Both Tiger fans and Tiger's fans are incorrect because they are singular words. Please make sure that we get that right!

Thanks.

Looks like we have a winner. However, I'm pretty sure that we can not afford to pay Mona so we'll have to let it go, *sigh*. We'll just hold onto our voluntary logos. :)

That logo actually symbolizes our current cricket. When you wanna chumma a tiger instead of crapping in your pants, you know there is somehting wrong!
