I'm going to be evil and throw in another option.... what about a keenspace Summer Camp theme?

KeenLace...

Postby The Elven on Fri Jul 09, 2004 12:30 pm

I'm missing KeenLace though... maybe you could email the person in charge? I think they have keenevents.keenspace.com as well, which would be good to have access to.

I think mcDuffies has access to the Keenevents website, too, since the KeenLobotomy event is being held there. I think the guy who was originally in charge vanished; the Events front page hasn't updated in almost a year.

The summer activities-bikini optional would cover both the pool party and the summer camp AND everything in between. The suggestion seemed sound so anyone who had a different idea for summer events (like a picnic, or a jike through the mountain, or maybe going to summer classes against their will) could pitch in without actually worrying about breaking the event's theme. And it doesn't stop anyone from collaborating.

If we're still not going to go with that, though, I'll go with the Summer Camp. Far more original and under-represented that characters in bikini. Even Marvel and DC have those!

That said, one thing I think all works should have in common is an event logo. So everyone think of one and post it here. We'll accept submissions until Wednesday, and then decide which one we like best.

Or we could make Grace do it, she's the Grand Poobah after all, since noone challenged her nomination.

I'll talk to RPin too, since his Keencaptors event ran on keenevents, if I'm not mistaken.

Thus, the men who commited the atrocities of September 11 were neither cowards nor lunatics of any sort, but Men of Faith- perfect faith- and this, it must finally be acknowleged, is a terrible thing to be.

I suggest someone else make the logo, since I suck at logos in general.


I think the all encompassing summer idea should be the one to go with; that way people can draw their characters at a pool party if they want, at a summer camp if they want, or anything in between. Unless there are any objections, I think we should get started on this sucker.

We need to make a website for it, and once I am sure there are no objections to the above plan we can begin pimping it and asking for submissions.

We also need to figure out where to host it. There have been many suggestions thrown out there of event sites and such; should we try one of those or would it be easier to just put it on one of our pages?

Ok folks, let's keep this short and sweet:

1) we need a logo. If someone can whip one up today than I can
2) make up a site for the event, so that we can
3) start pimping this thing and asking for submissions.

Ok?Ok.

now...... GO!

Oooh, logo design! I'll do a few. Are there any specific guidelines on size?

EDIT - Status update: I've done one; it's being coloured now.

*bumpity*

Aaaand it's done!

Rather, four of them are done; I just switched fonts. Anywhoo, let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions. Also, I called it "Summer of Keenspace," but that can be changed at any time if you had a different title in mind.

Logos are 800x300 pixels and approximately 70kb each:

Anime Ace
Arr Matey
Superheterodyne
Santa Monica

Alright, I've e-mailed them as attachments to the address you have listed on your comic site.

They all look good, although maybe you could cut off a strip of sky at the top, and make it/them a little "skinnier"?

Once we decide on a font I'll take the original and cut it down a bit, then redo the text. Otherwise it'd be off-center and unbalanced. Speaking of which, are there any specific dimensions I should aim for?

Also, concerning fonts; if you'd prefer to see any different fonts in the logo, let me know. I just browsed through a site quickly, pulling out fonts that looked like they might work, so I'm open to suggestions.

Alright, just so y'all know I'm probably not going to be here tomorrow, and Thursday and Friday are iffy. I'll try to make it in, but chances are I'll be too out of it. (I'm having wisdom teeth pulled tomorrow, and the painkiller they've given me is apparently some pretty heavy stuff.)

Anyways, if there's anything you need me to do, logo-related or otherwise, just post it here and I'll check back as soon as I can.
