ok so i am making a button for my robotics team. i have the initial stuff set up (but i suck at photoshop) so things are a bit weird right now and well literally the design sucks.

im not sure if this is against forum rules, but can someone "do" it for me.
when i say "do" i am lightly using it. i will provide the ideas and the pictures. all the person has to do is "Photoshop" it out and if he/she wishes add some of their own magic to making it look awesome.

i would say Monday would be a good time to have it done .. but if anyone wants to try their skills at photoshop or something.

you may not believe me, but i will say that the person did it for me (i wont take the full credit for it).. i know thats a bit hard to believe, but trust me please.

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Qx4BSvXYInvob1QKgVmR3w?feat=directlink

these are two that i did ( the 2nd one is after playing with the settings, the first one is the original) but it would be doing something like that, making it more techie and adding a cool phrase or so..and shrinking the pics so they fit in the circle or something like that

the more people who want to try it out the better it can be [ if it really is amazing and cool, i can have the team make all sorts of buttons i suck at photoshop, and illustrator and GIMP is still confusing to me...

so once again, i am not sure if this is against forum rules because of the "do" part, but like i said, i won't take credit for it. so if you want to help me out, comment below :) [and like i said, multiple people can help me out, the more designs the happier we all are!!]

 

*PS tell me if this is against forum rules :)

What kind of button?  The kind you pin onto your shirt?  The kind you double click on to open an application?

I'd be happy to help.

Oh, the site that was :(

the details:

like i mentioned before, this is a button you pin to the shirt. Now for this button we need it to include about 4 things (maybe 5)

1. we need the mascot

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/46HWhNycq0jjcuvwzzFGMA?feat=directlink

 

2. we need the following design (triangle, circle, square included:

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Pz0urHEf30zaiyfWKGII1A?feat=directlink

 

3. It has to be a techie design

 

4. it has to say: "Team Paradox 2102"

make this in somewhat fancy letters. (not too boring, but not tooo glamorous.. just perfect :) )

~i actually like your cogizio font, it has that ring, but if you have another one with that ring to it, than go for that

 

5. Draw in the inner circle

see if this link works: https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=088746274e&view=att&th=12e027a37a0fed5f&attid=0.1&disp=inline&realattid=f_gjw0qdtf0&zw

if not then this: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Lx2jWoq4dqKSzAj6j-OUUQ?feat=directlink

 

ok so like you can see the design i did in the first post, its not what i want (1. its not in the inner circle, and 2. admit it, it is horrible :) )

also as you can see in this horribly done picture [one below] (my painting skills need work ;) )

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/EAYbZ-BVXYcC30g0FAd1Rg?feat=directlink

make it interesting. if possible, can you take the logo (triangle circle square) and make it so it spells paradox.. i tried to do that, but i think i would need that ability to twist and turn things so they are molded like that. [feel free to make your own as long as it is similar to the original]

(that was just an idea, if it is too hard or complicated to understand/do feel free to back out, but we need to include the logo someplace where it stands out… maybe we could shape it like a boombox or musical note 

 

6. and for the "phrase" maybe something like ~ Team Paradox 2102 Loves You!..

personally i like : "Do the Paradox" so try adding that one first and see if that fits the style :)

 

7.oh yes, the team colors are yellow and red (so you can center around that, but im sure it wont matter)

 

PS> tell me if this is confusing.. ill make it easier to understand :)

 

thanks man, i really appreciate the work and effort. kudos

 

lets shoot for monday->tuesday, if thats okay with you..

Here's what I have so far:

In order to include the pegasus, I'll need a much cleaner copy--I tried to do line detection to clean it up and it would've taken hours. 

When I'm done I can crop everything to fit stylistically into the outer circle.

I'll be waiting Cool

I thought you had scanned it.  In that case, I'll need to think of how to do it… the options are:

1) You find the piece of paper and rescan it.

2) You re-trace it on the computer.

3) You re-trace it on paper.

4) I re-trace it on the computer. 

I don't want it to be #4--that takes hours and hours and hours and hours to do. Yell

EDIT:

hey locutus, can you do another favor. can you make two buttons (exactly the same  and all), except instead of that first picture of the  pegasus, use this one:

https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/mDEWs0iZF_OxEI2bYLMlJA?feat=directlink

 

so two buttons with same formatting and all, but with just another pegasus..

 

tell me if its possible?.. :)

thanks prema

one word:

SEXY!!!it seriously looks bitchin!

 

although the font colors might have to be different, cuz they sort of blended in [im talking about all of them], but im sure you know that too :)

also can you shrink the "Team Paradox" so we see it completely?

 

you are one heck of a photoshopper! ;)

EDIT: i emailed my "boss" and she said that it has to be on the inside circle, so you will have to shrink it.

as the french say: Be-U-Z-FUL!! [beautiful!]

 

two things though :)

1. can you shrink the pegasus into the inner circle too? and

2. can you also do the second image [with the pegasus in the inner circle too]?

 

last two things.. promise ;)

Sure–but that second pegasus won't look as good because it has less contrast with its background.
