Finheaven.com is having an “Finheaven Logo & Site Design” contest.

Enter your design in the “Finheaven Logo & Site Design Contest” before 11:59pm EST on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, and you may have a chance to win the prize of a Miami Dolphins mini helmet autographed by Miami Dolphins Legends Jim Kiick, Larry Csonka, Paul Warfield, and Don Shula PLUS a lifetime VIP membership!


How the contest works:

The Miami Dolphins have a new log and design so now Finheaven.com needs a new look! Are you an art student? Do you have design skills? Enter our contest by posting a .jpg of your logo design in this thread. Logo entries must be at least 400 px wide and 200 dpi.


Here is the selection process:

The contest will consist of three parts:
Each entry design will be posted on the Finheaven.com in the 2013 Finheaven.com Logo Contest Forum.
The members of Finheaven.com will vote on their favorite design starting May 16, 2013 and ending May 19, 2013.

The top three (3) designs, as designated by the number of votes will be decided upon by the staff of Finheaven.com to pick a winner. So be sure to promote your design among your friends!

The winner will be notified on May 20th, 2013 and an announcement will be made on Finheaven.com.

The winning design will then become the official Finheaven.com logo & site design. (Finheaven.com reserves the right to use at minimum only the basic idea of the design or design sketch for the logo; some modifications to the original may be required, including reformatting or redrawing the original design).

If the winning design has been entered by a non-Finheaven.com or staff member or a non-family member of a Finheaven.com or staff member (as defined in the “Legal Stuff” section, below), the winning prize will be awarded to the entrant.

How to enter:

To be eligible to win, contestants must submit their design in the 2013 Finheaven.com Logo Contest Thread by 11:59pm EST Wednesday, May 15, 2013.


What to submit:



The design must be for a logo for Finheaven.com and design elements as desired that can include:

No quotes or other plagiarized elements may be used for any text in the logo
No previously copyrighted text or artwork may be used.

Wow cool. It will be tough to beat the current logo because I feel that works well for the branding of the site.

Can you give some info in what kind of qualities you are looking for in a new logo. Kind of a design brief or sorts?

I actually remember entering the original contest, lol.

Ya, I have a feeling most people will want to keep the current logo. Maybe you guys should put the recolored current logo up to a vote against the contenders? And if it wins, use the runner up as a secondary logo and give the prize?

certainly submit a good recolor, or mutiple recolor works etc. we'll consider all options. Basically we want as many choices as possible and the fanbase will narrow them down for us.

Hey Bill. Seeing as how this is a contest with a real prize. When the voting voting starts, can you set the poll up so that we CAN'T see the results? That way it's a surprise to the winner and we don't see the ridiculous vote whoring that we see with the other polls/contests we have here.

Hey Fins, looks good, but the Miami Dolphins logo is trademarked. FH would get in a lot of trouble if they tried to use that logo as their own.

So here is my entry. I did a logo and a script logo. I like our current logo, I really do. But another member said it resembles a shark a little too much. So when putting this together I wanted to keep the spirit of the old logo, while giving it more dolphin like features. I made sure to use new colors used in the new Dolphins logo as well. Those colors mesh very well. So without further ado:
(They are rather large images, so click on the spoiler button)

First off, let's not get carried away with me being the winner. There is still PLENTY of time before for people to enter their art.

Secondly, you might be right about the script logo. But it can be changed. Each of those variants were product of boredom and the fact that I love my own design.

Looks great. Though, as it was pointed out earlier in the thread, you'll have to drop the Dolphins logo because of copy right issues. Great job though.


Great work! I love it.
And I'm going to have to call you on this one Skape. His logo has EVERYTHING you hated about the Dolphins last logo. Plus sun glasses. Now if you are saying it's a great drawing, then right on.

Disturbed, there is a difference between a logo for a professional organization and one for a fan forum.

The two require different sensibilities. I wouldn't design a serious logo for a company that makes children's toys, the same way I wouldn't design a fun, colorful, playful logo for a law firm.

I think JG's design is great for a fan forum, but would be terrible for a professional sports organization.

In addition, when designing a logo you need to take into account the many ways the logo will be used and in which mediums it will be represented. In the case of a professional sports logo, it will often appear in small icon sizes, and on clothing, and should be distinguishable from a distance. That is not the case for a logo for a message board community. It does not need to be designed with the same limitations in mind.

JG777

I agree this would never work for a teams logo, but for a fan logo I think pretty much anything goes, I thought the glasses would be appropriate for a sunny florida look, thanks for the kind comments:up:

I agree as well. Especially for a contest. But to Skape's point about what looks professional, it really depends on what a client wants.

Again, in this case, it's free reign. So it works out wonderfully. But if a client wanted a helmet on a dolphin, then that is what you draw. Even if you don't agree with it.

When you draw or design something. You do it because you like it or think it looks good. Or you do it because you think the client will like it or thinks it looks good. In my case i did both.

You know, I think the one thing that throws me off with this is the dorsal fin. I would try it on the other side.

NyPhan23
05-03-2013, 09:03 AM
GUNNZ... I'd lose the drop shadow and Grey background... Drop shadows are just a cheap photoshop effect that are to be used minimally in the design world and I think it takes away from your design overall. Not to mention, drop shadows in a logo are a big no no. You want to try and stick to vector shapes as far as logos go. If you don't believe me, find a large company such as nike or adidas that uses any drop shadows at all in their design on their websites. I like the drawing as a whole, but remember, constructive criticism.

As far as the grey goes... you really lose your pop from the orange and teal with that grey background. They'd come off the page more if it were white like you originally had

MIAMI_GUNNZZ
05-03-2013, 10:44 AM
Thanks guys for your input. I would like to clarify a few things. Shifty,The dorsal fin can only be on that side because his back is facing that way. He's In a stiff arm pose. Now I know what u mean NY about filters in photoshop. But my drop shadows were created,not filtered. Not to mention other designs posted, like shiftys have drop shadows as well. Lastly. I only put the design on a grey background because its a neutral color. I wanted to show all of the colors used. If I had put it on a white background. You couldn't tell where the whites are. Fun heaven can choose the background to put it on. Thanks again

Thanks guys for your input. I would like to clarify a few things. Shifty,The dorsal fin can only be on that side because his back is facing that way. He's In a stiff arm pose.

Well technically you shouldn't be able to see the dorsal fin at all.

As for the white around the sun. I would suggest making the orange thicker that way you can put it on a white background without having to worry about it looking so thin.

And for the record, my shadows are not filters either.

I'm a fan of the more simplified look, though I admit some of the entries in this thread are great.

Here is my latest attempt. I tried to make it a little bolder and more aggressive. I am open to criticism!

Alright, so just finished off my 2nd Finheaven rebranding. Kept the website the same as my first because I was pretty happy with how that came out. For the logo I went for more of a realistic Dolphin this time, and the wordmark follows along the lines of the Dolphins actual new wording as well... Hope you all like it.

Noticed a few minor things I'd tweak around the nose of the Dolphin on that one after looking at it large in the detail shot there. It gets a little jagged in a few spots, easy fixes though.

This new one looks MUCH better than your first one. My only suggestion is make the eye a little smaller. Other than that, good job!

Thanks Shifty, ya I wasn't entirely sold on the first one either... would still like to make a buncha edits on the 2nd as well, but unfortunately spare designing time is hard to come by, and I doubt I'll have much more before the deadline. I fought with the eye for awhile, and agree it should probably be a little smaller, I just got so tired of messin with it haha. I do still like the first logo a bit, but think I was trying a little too hard to go off of what was already there with the dolphin flexing. Anyways, it provided a nice stepping stone for this 2nd logo.

I like yours the most, but there needs yo be some more definition between the head and the tail. As it stands the tail looks like a growth out of the head. Your design is the best, especially with the font type. Just a little touchup with shading and lines with the tail and it will be perfect..

The only thing I would say needs a little work is the fin on the back of the Dolphin. If it looked a little more natural I think this submission is a slam dunk.

I love the detail you put into the front page of the site. It looks incredibly clean and organized.

Just a quick (emphasis on quick haha, it's a little sloppy) mock up of your proposed changes... Idk, I could go either way on it myself. Glad you like the idea though, Thanks!
