Mike,

Very good points. It has been a year in the making and I still have not come up with something better than what it is today yet simple and bold as you describe it.

fxstein,

The only real issue I see with your original starvmax.com logo is that it is not "square." In fact, it is so horizontal that even the business cards seem kind of funky. Otherwise, it's pretty darn good. Maybe some "3D" or other effect.

Backgrounds changed to blue as suggested. Not sure what color is Yamaha Blue. If someone knows the Pantone code for Yam Blu, I can change it.

THANKS

Mike, Can you do image-5 in your profile with white or transparent background?

I like the lettering but need a logo that can go against white background.

fxstein,
Here are several images as best I interpreted your suggestions, with the following exceptions. I have not done the mirror reflection - I'm experimenting with several reflection special effects in CorelDraw. Also I did not enlarge the bike to fill the entire frame (lots of cropping and scaling needed which compromises the bike's impact). I'll show you these first; if you still want the bike full-frame, I can easily do that. I wasn't sure what combinations of blue you wanted, so I tried several. Tell me what aspects you like and dislike. Same for anyone else wishing to comment.

Mike: Much like you suggested, I'm also working on a very clean and simple design with only the stand-alone letters "starVmax" -- trying various special effects with 3D, shadows, and subtle reflections. As you know, the perfect combination of simplicity, balance, and uniqueness, while still maintaining general appeal to most Maxers -- is a formidable challenge.

Is it possible to get the big one on white background?

fxstein,
Since image-5 bike was white against blue background, the blue lines on bike were actually the blue background shining thru; if I added a white back to 5, the bike would have disappeared. But I knew what you meant, I think. I had to put a white layer behind image-1 to get black line drawing of bike against white back.

See image-6 here. Do u need mcy lines more subtle, less opacity? Or do want some color on the bike? Later we can go either white or transparent background, ur call.

This is starting to look very nice. I would probably play a little with the font effects.

Which I'm in the proces of doing now. But it's 3:30am here. Must hit the sack for tonight.

Can't figure why some images present large and others small. The sizes are relatively the same. I'm pumping image-6 file up a bit to see if that makes a diff.

It didn't. You'll have to go to my profile gallery to see the full size on image6.

Go get some rest. You help is VERY much appriciated!

I made the pic bigger. Its the size parameter inside the img tag that limits the size. If you remove the size=150 it will make them bigger - up to the width of the text area.
