Last Logo Tests for Discussion

We can obviously use ANY image as a texture at any zoom level, as these two examples show. (again, these are low res GIF's from the vector source files)

Atari Joystick Odyssey2 Keyboard Faded Thick Border Low Res GIF: I obviously wanted to play on the idea of the top "Armchair" featuring a videogame-centric texture, while the bottom one a computer-centric one (I didn't have anything handy more computer-centric)Atari Joystick Odyssey2 Keyboard Faded Thick Border Low Res GIF: I obviously wanted to play on the idea of the top "Armchair" featuring a videogame-centric texture, while the bottom one a computer-centric one (I didn't have anything handy more computer-centric)

Pitfall 2 Keyboard Thin Border: I think I like thicker borders a bit better than these thin ones, though it might create an interesting sucken effect on the black backgroundPitfall 2 Keyboard Thin Border: I think I like thicker borders a bit better than these thin ones, though it might create an interesting sucken effect on the black background

On to something

I think you're really on to something there, Bill. The key is to find the perfect image, I suppose--something that won't distract too much from the text to make it hard to read. I really like the effect, though. What program are you using to make these?

Well, let me know and I can

Well, let me know and I can whip it up very quickly. I'm just using Paint Shop Pro version 9. If you like the basic concept of the first one, I can definitely try different images that might be easier to read. I just used what was laying around since I didn't want to waste any time on a test. So, if you can direct me what font and border density you like, I can easily put different photo textures to it.

I'm not liking this one as much...

(NOTE: I have to mark all these logo tests for deletion to clear room)
