    Can we submit multiple entries? If say for example, we come up with multiple, dramatically different designs.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Yes.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Indeed, the more the higher your chances (if you're any good).

      From the terms: "Multiple variations for your submissions would be appreciated (different color schemes, backgrounds, layouts, etc.)"

  • http://www.twitter.com/thewizkid95 Jesus Otero

    Does the submission have to be digital?
    I'm not much of an Adobe Photoshop kinda guy.
    Like to use the good 'ol pencil and paper instead ;D

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      We're happy to look at any concepts you can draw up, but sad to say, without something that has been digitized into vectors or layers, we probably couldn't take it as an official submission.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Yeah, feel free to conceptualize, but we'd need something we can take and use in a design, for instance. Would still love to take a look at anything creative you produce.

      We've run creative design contests in the past, and they've always worked out great and were welcomed by the community. Everyone here can help get the creative juices flowing and affect AP's future look (and win the grand prize) - if you don't want to do it because you feel like it's a waste of time, then you can skip participating in the contest. I hope others view it as a creative outlet and a chance to show their talent.

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      Do you know the origins of that movement? The problem came from companies who were putting out requests for sample/idea work with requirements that the designer produce around 90% of the work with no promise of pay. The designer who's trying to make a living has to dedicate real time and effort but the company but has no responsibility to pay them and often passed submissions off to their own designers or low bidders, or they would wait until the work was done and then lowball the designer. The purists have sorta glommed onto this to say that any open submission process is bad and degrades the value of good design work, and occasionally that's true. In this scenario, it's a specific rule of what they are looking for, what the reward is for a chosen submission (with no way of negotiating downward), this isn't for money and no designer is going to see this as a way of paying the bills, and as far as I can tell Artem isn't about to pass a submission to somebody else to claim as a reward. I'm fairly certain that serious professional designers are either willing to do this as a fun project/donation sorta thing, or they've evaluated it's not worth their time...No matter how you look at it, it's not a dishonest process, which is the fundamental reason Antispec started.

      disclaimer: I'm not against Antispec, I actually believe in it quite a bit...I just don't side with the hardcore purists.

      if you're a professional and don't want to get exploited like me just don't submit anything.
      In this field, much like everywhere else, you get what you pay for.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        Ideally, the tagline could just be tacked on in a similar style, but the logo itself doesn't need to have it - for instance, on the site, we'd include the tagline, but on shirts or banners, we might not.

            The only resemblance I see is the broken dash in the letter A.

      • misostc

        Yeah, but it's kind of hard to think of a logo for the website called "Android police" without using the android mascot or the police theme :)

        I'll try to think of something else, tho.

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

          Funny, I was thinking the same thing.  Bugdroid is the accepted symbol of Android and avoiding Police-related symbolism kinda pushes anything actually related to the name out of context pretty quickly. Of course, the word 'Android' itself is technically infringing if taken to the extreme sense (though, we all know it's legal when used this way).

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

          We're ideally looking for something that is merely aesthetically pleasing, modern, and distinct - don't focus on the name of the website, focus on making something that looks good that happens to contain the words "Android Police" or the letters "AP" - we're trying to avoid "theming," both for IP issues and the fact that it is really, really played out.

    If you guys wanted to "stay away" from the police theme, than you shouldn't have named the website Android Police. Now, doing a logo of anything else won't even make any sense.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      There are plenty of ways to design an abstract, tasteful logo without referencing a shield or a siren.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      We're avoiding theming, which is kind of played out and frankly doesn't age very well. We want something that stands as a work on its own - just think of it as designing a logo that has to contain certain letters / words (AP / Android Police). We're looking for style above all else here.

    Creating a logo should be a collaborative process, so consider this a rough draft. You can keep it black and white if you want, or do colors, or whatever. Colors are a secondary thing. (For instance, what color is the Nike logo supposed to be?)

    Here's black and white versions. I'm of the opinion that simpler is better. For teeny tiny representations, just drop the circle and go with text only.
    http://i.imgur.com/iFkIg.png
    If you go with a black background, a glow instead of an outline can add a little flash.http://i.imgur.com/6VjIf.png

    By any chance, are you guys doing a site redesign anytime soon? Feels like something that should come with a logo redesign..

    • http://www.thepixelpuse.com/ Aj Meadows

      I was JUST going to ask the same question. If AP is planning on building a site-redesign around the new logo, then hell, I'll DEFINITELY go to the extra trouble of constructing a mock-up around the submission I'm working on. Also, if I know it's for a redesign then it'd make me feel way more comfortable about doing something vastly different than what AP is rocking now.

      • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

        Yeah, we're doing a redesign, and while we already have a new logo in mind, I thought it wouldn't hurt to get more creative juices flowing by doing this contest. Maybe a new logo could end up trumping what we have so far.

    The favicon ends up being so important for a site like this. I interact with it from many browsers and readers. Getting away from red and blue (police) and green (bugdroid), I thought a bright orange might be good. It has that "this is a feed" feeling when you see it.

    My take on the logo.
    Dark gray and lime green were chosen to invoke the image of android, and of technology.
    Overall design was toned down and kept linear and minimal for legibility.
    Even more simplified version is available upon request.

    Alright, so after I put together what I thought would be a cool logo, I decided to build a site-redesign mockup around it. I figured if this is an Android blog, then why not make it look a bit like Android? So I took a few cues from ICS's design philosophy and came up with this.

          • http://www.thepixelpuse.com/ Aj Meadows

            I never did that myself! A few pals I was hanging out with did it from their devices. I can't control them man. They're a little overzealous. They were just doing what they thought they could to "help". I promise it wasn't my idea and that there weren't any malicious intentions or anything. If you think I shouldn't win because of it that's fine, but I didn't think it was that big of a deal, I knew Schraerb was a friend of mine, that's why I put the smiley at the end. I promise there was no sneakiness involved. Like I said, you can disqualify me if you'd like, but I want you to know that it really wasn't something I had control over. It was kinda done without me knowing, and I just went with it. Sorry : /

          • http://www.thepixelpuse.com/ Aj Meadows

            Also, I didn't realize they had gone through and 'liked' everything I posted. I just noticed that the first post of mine was liked by 4 guests. I promise I didn't even know they did that. They're idiots, and I don't think they know how the internet works.

      • Bas

        Kinda cartoony. This is good for an Android news website!

      • Ryan Smith

        Here is a more complex version with some shading. I think the font is a little cartoonish, but it also is inviting, which could help to broaden the appeal.

        • Chris Wueste

          I must say this one is my favorite.  The shield inside the "o" in police was a very nice subtle touch as were the antennae of the "r".  Great  job ryan.

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          Liking this concept. You did not disappoint, Ryan.

        • Ryan Smith

          Here is a variation of this logo, with a different font, and a bit more serious stylization.

        • Ryan Smith

          Found a better font still lol. I also like the two lines of text rather than one. I think it looks sick on a dark background. This design can also be simplified for a T-shirt.

    • Ryan Smith

      Well here is something different. Haha.

    • Ryan Smith

      What do you think of this?

      I like the first one the most. Think about a thin font for the name, something with smooth curves. Also, I don't like the white change-up for the first logo when you moved it to the website header, I'd stay with your initial darker color.

    • RAOUL ZIVOLIC

       NICE

    • http://twitter.com/wacommike eM82 / Misi

      Thanks for the comments. Yes the fonts were sooooo basic, I just focused on the logos... my bad :(. Therefore i'll update the 1st and the 4th one with proper font styles tomorrow + if I'll have time to finish, then uploading 4 new logo concepts.

    • http://twitter.com/wacommike eM82 / Misi

      The first two are just font-updated versions, but the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th pictures are my new and last "hopes" :).

      This isn't that big of a deal man. Chill out. I don't think any of us are employing and paying for a team of people to come up with these logos. Here's a novel idea! Maybe most of us (besides wanting the tablet) just have some free time and are big fans of the website. And MAYBE we're loving the opportunity to contribute to the way AP looks. I read this site almost daily (in most cases daily) so I got a kick out of volunteering some design work. I agree with your cause, I don't think it's an invalid one, but I think you're out of bounds in putting it here. We're not design firms fighting over 100,000 dollar deals or anything. This isn't Mad Men. We're just some Android fans who are hoping for a tablet and the chance to change the face of our favorite site. Give it a rest.

      This is pretty darn awesome sir.  I really like this design.
      I have to say that it isn't entirely apparent that the logo says "AP".  It's a little blended.  Perhaps if you made the A and the P different colors??

  • Cyantific35

    Here's a concern of mine, are you keeping the site design the same or will that be revamped at some point in the near future? Cracked rock, shade of blue, green accents? This will really impact the design process. You don't want a super clean, Web 2.0 logo on top of the current site's color scheme and style. 

    Should we design our logo to fit the current site, or a theoretical new one?

      Drawn solely with PhotoShop Touch for Android! So this is an Android logo, made from Android...

          I meant drawn with "made with photoshop", ofcourse I've picked up the hat and the phone from Google. Had to craft of the Android though...

      Paint or Photoshop?

        Well, as a matter of fact, it was PhotoShop! So you might wanna make your own logo instead of sneering on others...

    too many colors?

    here's my entry. kind of MC Escher inspired. used Roboto Compact font for the text in the third image. wasn't sure of which colours to use, but it inadvertently ended up with kind of an olympics colour scheme. colours can easily be changed though.

      i like the bold clean look, but the technical requirements say not to use the bugdroid character. allusions to eyes and antennae seem ok.
