UVScene Logo ideas and discussion
Dr. Nik got me thinking about a few logo ideas. I also found an free open-source drawing application called Inkscape that can make .eps files and other vector graphics. Fifteen minutes later I was cranking out logo ideas.
The way I see it now is we can have a logo that arranges the text of uvScene in clever way. We could use something that is strictly a image or shape like is used in our current logo. We could also come up with something that uses both type and images.
My first batch of ideas uses the design with text approach. These are just a few designs that I started with to get some get some ideas flowing and maybe start some conversation. This is your chance to share your ideas. Should we design with text, images or both? Any ideas for a color scheme we should use? Who else is working on logo ideas?
Upcoming Blockbuster: Casino Royale
Casino Royale in Theaters on November 17th, 2006
I enjoyed reading the book so I am excited about the movie. Info on the Web site indicates they did pretty well following the plot from the book.
In addition to a new actor(Daniel Craig), we should get the chance to see a different James Bond character then we have seen the more recent movies. This Bond is more of a cold war agent that relies on intelligence, instinct, guts and his gun more then fancy gadgets. He is closer to the Bond character from Dr. No and Goldfinger.
I was fascinated by the card game Bond and his enemy le Chiffre play in the casino. It is an ancient European card game called Baccarat. This is how Bond got his reputation as an accomplished gambler that we see in other movies.
So how many other 007 fans are out there?
