Generally it's sans serif for screen, serif for print, but since this'll be printed and screen, it's really up for grabs, especially since screen can produce serifs just as well as sans these days.
I quite like sans, but I get the impression LIFE's not mad about the sans serifs, at this point I'm just throwing up stuff to bounce ideas about.
Uh no, I'm going to play the drums, you lot can work it out for a bit. :P

I wonder if it's really a good idea to set such a short time limit on this competition. I mean, yeah, it'd be good to get the ball rolling with a new look ASAP - but equally, finding people to be piqued enough to contribute, and to work through various designs, may take a little more time than the deadline set on the competition.

We'll see, I suppose... I'm just tossing around my thoughts, too. :)

Is there anything that I could maybe add as an incentive to competitors? :ask: :P

I have a couple of ideas but am busy until the weekend at which time I'll give it some effort. In the mean time here is a basic version of one of my ideas. Image

I was thinking about that too and have set it to the end of June now ;)

Can't we make it ultra-modern with a biotech and molbio theme? You know, sleek fonts, colourful background, double helices and cells all around?

Go for it. :D

Sounds tacky to me tbh, but I like minimalism. Now I really have to go to my drums.


P.S. Looks great Aud, now drums...

Even trained gorillas paint/design better than me. Maybe I'm a little biased in my suggestion. :mrgreen:

Very nice, I think you might want to widen it a bit though, the kerning is a bit squashed in some places, looking good though. :grin:

I don't know, I think some of us are best at standing at the sidelines cheering on the artistic ones to go further and further...

The eye is not "mine" though, I can't draw myself :(

Very nice font. Not sure about the eye tbh, the .org placement is nice though, understated and highlighted at the same time.
Here's a rat one, but I don't like it.

The eye looks a bit too sexy and "come hither" than rational and investigative. :P I do quite like it, though...

Don't tell me you're complaining about this ...

If so, this'll be a genuine first ... :mrgreen:

I'm not complaining. Merely observing. I was thinking of adding the disclaimer that I of course have no problems with sexy, come hither eyes - but just that it just might not exactly suit the purposes set out in the brief... :P

That's not your eye?!... and there I was thinking you were a gorgeous, buxom, blonde! :?
