      DV Newsletter Title

      Since the DV Newsletter is - vaguely - rolling on into action, I was wondering whether there would be anyone willing to design a title for it.

      A simple, signature-sized image with the words 'DV NEWSLETTER' on is essentially it. I'm not after anything particularly fancy - something like the Times, Guardian, New York Times, simple and professional.

      Since it's a newsletter for the people by...well, me and some guys, really...I figured it'd be fitting if the people came up with the title.

      If it's what we're after, I'll put it at the top of each issue.

      I'll do a title if you like. I can whip one together in the next hour or so. I'll make it newspaper like.

      I'm up for doing it, however if you want someone else to do it or have the opportunity to do it, please let me know because i can get started on it now. Just gotta boot up the other computer.

      Got a design going and should have it uploaded in the next half hour.

      We're also looking for someone interested in a comic strip for the newsletter.

      I did actually volunteer for that, but i'm sure that someone else would do a much better job than me.

      Oh, the title is nearly done, i used what i could, i ripped the logo from the times and i did my own with it. I hoe its okay. But its completely up to you, its simple. Give me a minute to re-size and upload it.

      If we have cartoons by various artists, you wouldn't need to do it on a routine basis, just whenever you make a particularly good one.

      Looking forward to your title. You've held out the suspense long enough.

      Here's one quick idea:



      [Edit: I don't really like all of the text behind it, LS, but I really like the seal.]

      Yeah, it was a long shot, i was hoping for it to work, obviously it didn't work too well.

      I can make adjustments if so.

      Vaguely like the text in the background, though overall it does make it look awkward. If it could be incorporated in some way that'd be nice.

      The seal is the Times, right?

      Too cartoony/comicy, O. Need moar archaic prestige.

      Mmmm...I prefer the more rectangular shape O used, to be honest. More...titular.

      Olde English is an excellent font. Use it.

      I think "The Lucid Times" would be a better title. Just throwing in my two cents.

      Yeah, surprisingly enough, I don't have Old English. That was the first one I thought to use, because of the Times. I might have something close to it, or could find somewhere to DL it.

      LS, in this thread you come off as being very negative about yourself and your creative abilities. I'm sort of afraid to critique it now, just because of the way you put yourself down. Let me know if I'm reading too much into this.. but that's just the impression I'm getting.

      Anyway, I really like the second version. I would personally like the title to take up the bulk of the space.. so maybe stretch it out and make it bigger.. As of now, it looks like the background is overpowering the title, or at least making it less significant than it should be. Otherwise, I really love what you've got going there.

      Only problem is it sort of implies that the newsletter is mostly about lucid.. stuff.

      Old English is a must have for any computer.

      http://www.1001fonts.com

      Mmm, I'm not particularly in love with the name. But that was Seis' name, and he was the one to push it forward...'til I stole it.

      Quite liking it, Lucid Seeker. Quite liking it indeed.

      How about we meet half-way and call it "DV Times" or "Dream Views Times"?

      I suck at this type of stuff though, but i'm always open to criticism on how i can improve. I don't like to claim i'm good at anything because i don't like coming across as arrogant, to me, theres always room for improvement.

      Okay so I tried the "DV Times" and the "DV" doesn't look good since its very small, even blown up it looks pretty bad. Thats on my design anyways. Lets just see what comes in though, theres probably some way better things to come.

      I'll look into changing to DV Times - I'm walking out the door now, I'll do it when I get back.

      I really like LS's idea with the seal, but I don't think we should lift the one directly from the times, so maybe the same sort of idea with a different seal?

      I'm going to work something up as well, I'll have it posted within the next hour. That way we'll have plenty to choose from.

      Edit: I've got several ideas, here's a (really) quick draft of the first. Not sure that font (Trajan Pro) works, and not sure about the "The". It also needs a border, come to think of it. Note that this is not at all similar to the others posted already, I have my own style.



      Thoughts so far?
