I never really followed through with that, as I had way too much to do. I don't even have my version of HA's new logo anymore. I was looking through my files, and I found a funny T-shirt slogan I had made way back when. Here it is:

The model is obviously not me (I'm black).


I'm the same way lol. I have so many projects I never finished.


It's tough to finish projects. Given the economy, you may have no choice but to focus on whatever brings in money, and in turn put everything else to the side. Sometimes indefinately. Winston was not going to pay me for my aforementioned logo design (understandably), so I went on to focus entirely on buying-and-selling and eBay again.

My submission for Winston's Banner

Post by JamaicaninChina » March 25th, 2012, 10:47 am

Here's something I suggested to Winston for a banner revamp back in January! :-) Let's have a vote! :-)

Thanks Eurobrat,
It looks nice. The letters are higher quality and have a polished shine to them. That's what we need. However, the globe looks a little too big and squished there. Can you make it smaller?

Also, do you guys think it would look better if we had a graphic of a woman laying down horizontally just above the logo? Do you know how to insert something like that into the logo? You can try to find some graphic images of women on Google Images I guess (http://images.google.com).

I do like it overall though. If I use it, I'll be glad to send you $20 by PayPal for your help and contribution of the new logo design, since it's an important part of any serious website and online business.

Good work. Let me know what you think of the changes I propose.

Thanks,
Winston

Well actually, I don't have time to look into T-shirt and button design right now. I have too much on my plate to focus on and am backed up. I need to update my ebook, publish it in paperback, prepare slides for interviews and presentations, and write letters back to Chinese women too, which I'm having a hard time keeping up with. lol

But even then, I think that if I were to distribute Happier Abroad buttons and T-shirts, it would probably be best to find a company who can both create the designs and manufacture them at the same time, as a package deal. It would just be more convenient that way. So it's nothing personal.

If anyone knows of such a company that has a good deal or package for doing that, let me know.

Thanks,
Winston

That one is pretty nifty and creative. Some might like it. But the problem is that the letters cover the girls, and there are too many colors on it. It just has a "busy" look to it. I have a feeling that a simple smooth less complicated logo is best. I think photos work best right under the logo. What do you all think?

Honestly Winston I think if you put a girl laying down some guys might take it as a porn site. But it's up to you.

And I don't want $20 but thanks for the offer, I would much rather prefer your advice and you answer some questions I have on Russia and Russian women.


Here's the changed globe:

Oh ok. Do you want my advice/input by email, forum post, or over Skype?

The globe looks better. What about making it proportionate to the rest of the letters? Would that look better? Maybe you can create a second one with a globe that matches the size of the other letters, so we can compare? What do you guys think?

Maybe you're right. I guess it would look sleazy to have a silouette or graphic of a girl in the logo. What about making the "I" in "HAPPIER" into a lady's silouette standing up? lol

Here is a smaller globe. Will give you the .PSD file so you can use it for video's or whatever.

I have Skype, just have a few questions mainly on navigating around Russia and Russian women's personalities and characteristics.

That looks better. But now the R and A next to the globe look too far apart. Can you move them a little closer to the globe, so that it's all proportional?

What is a .PSD file? How do I open it or edit it?

Ok we can talk on Skype. PM me your Skype ID and when you are usually on.

Btw, since some images in this forum are so big that they go off screen beyond the normal layout, forcing people to scroll sideways to see them, along with the rest of the page, I've just installed a mod that squishes all images larger than 800px to 800px, so that they fit on screen within the layout of the forum.

You can view the full version of each squished image here by clicking on them, which will open a pop up displaying the full size of the image. Alternatively, you can also right click on the image and select "View Image" (in Firefox) to view its full size.

Thanks,
Winston

Me, too. It's more exciting visually. Nice job with the logo!
