First one looks shweeeet :)

Maybe don't have the ''Dog'' - inverted commas though?

And not sure on that signature font thing with the web address.

But good stuff Dog
;D

P.s. what does everyone reckon?!

Yeah, I wasn't sure on that either. I was looking for some sort of member number, but couldn't find one. Thanks, but I'm going to change it :D

The blue colour still isn't right, got to sort that. Anyone find it looks a bit bare, or not?

For it to work properly as a graphic, it needs to use the same typeface as the original logo, the exact same shades of colours and as a rule, shouldn't really mix fonts for a simple design

The colour can easily be picked with the eye dropper tool, and the logo can be reproduced in adobe illustrator with live trace and then live paint

You need to give bit of thought to the overall shape of what you're creating.
At the moment there is a lot of typo....and it's a bit confusing
You need to be able to recognise the decal from a distance, when you're walking around a show....or maybe when driving past....and the username needs to be legible and highly visible.
I put the side profile of the mini also so it's clear this is the mini in question.

The guys are very protective of the forum logo....you really ought to get permissions before you get too carried away.

As I said previously, this is just wishing at the moment.

I'm not actually even using adobe at the moment, because I'm not able to properly use it. I'm playing with graphic designs, but in no way say that this is the final design.

But yeah; perhaps someone with better adobe skills should be doing this instead of me :P

Dog, looks great!

And roofless I get where your comin' from! Maybe less font and more 'in ya faceee!' :lol:

So maybe just have 'theminiforum' then literally underneath in blue or another sharp colour ( - red, green?) your user name the same width and length ( of course a short name like yours Dog wouldnt be shorter as it will look stupid stretched >_< ) but I think keeping it minimal like roofless says is a good idea, as when driving past someone its easy to spot!
