    I see. Well, no. I don't see yet. But I'll be sure to look when I can see.

    I don't know your ability with graphics, but in your spare time (which we know you have so much of) you should try some thing from scratch. Eye Candy 4000 (for Photoshop) is awesome.

    Thanks for the advice, I'll keep that in mind.

    I'm currently trying to build my site, and just tackling everything involved with that. I have to say though, open-source is making it easy :)

    Looks like 1000 other Geocities web-site logo's. You really need to design something from scratch if you're going to be offering a service. It doesn't need to be amazing or fancy, just unique :)

    Very good point.

    Once I get my structure up, I'll take a look at what I have to work with for colors and dimensions. Thanks Speedy :)

    Seconded. Whatever you do, don't stay with this logo :p

    If you have your own, it'll look so much more professional.

    I think it's pretty nice for a simple logo type (I just downloaded the Crillee font yesterday). I've been doing graphic design for over 25 years -- I'd be happy to help out. How do you plan on using it? Will you be using it on the web only, or will need to have it printed (for example, on business cards)?

    :dead: Ummm... having troubles because I accidentally uploaded the .psd file instead of the .jpg, then tried to delete the message and resubmit, so I kept on getting those nasty 'duplicate message' error messages.... Let's see if this will work:
    :s
    I played with it a little bit. I'm assuming from what you created that you want something high-tech & professional looking. Lemme know what you think of this. I can always change colors, font, etc... or go a completely different route. But it's a start...

    :rolleyes: Hmmm... After looking at it online, I don't like the way the bottom of the J disappears... Maybe this would be better...

    Thanks... I just recently figured out how to do little animations in ImageReady. I've really been having fun with it.:cool:
