Okay -- here's a shot at the 256 x 256 logo.  (I made one for each jam number, not just 11.)  Whaddayall think?

I'm having a hard time doing the Best Of images... 100x100 is small to fit all the texts :ermm: Can't we do them 150x150 like the Winners?

 

What do you think? (number and date are just random)

It visually looks good, but I'm personnaly not a fan of the idea of incorporating characters from past Jams.

Good show, Nocturne!!  Logo competition is a great idea!  (Too bad it's only once a year, though.)
 
Nice, Lune!  Funny and quite goofy.  I like it.
 
Anyway, here's the one I did earlier.  From the looks of things, I'm gonna have to get back to the drawing board and come up with some more.  Good luck, everyone!

Just because I love you all, I don't want the money (if I win :P ).

 

Let me start Paint.net, and a wonderful logo will magically appear...

My favorites so far -- GreenBlizzard (the first one with the big eleven), Lune (green t-shirt), and newkill.  Hizno's is looking better, but I'm not a big fan of 'gang tag' lettering.  I like the 'military medal' look of centauri's, but they're a little plain and have no GMC Jam label.

 

I guess my 256 x 256 is too bright and flashy??

Oh... VERY nice. I think I have a new favourite... My niggle would be the font for the Jam Number. Not sure why, but it looks odd. 

 

I also still like Lune's and Centauri's are cool too. Simple, and appropriate.

Thanks for pointing it out :) It's probably odd because It's hand drawn and slightly rushed. Now I know I should replace it.

I might actually take a shot at this if I have time. Never designed a logo for anything before and my spritework for games is shockingly simplistic at best but luckily these don't have to be animated so I'm tempted to unleash my creative side :)

To be honest, the whole thing is a bit too simple in my opinion. Add something else besides just a gear with text on it.

Any suggestions on how to improve my trophies?

jeft.png

I feel like you should almost completely start over.

The pixel art style is cool because it's game-y, but that text really just isn't working; it's quite obviously squished in and just looks tacky.

When there are games and/or authors with long names, the text issue is going to be even worse.

The colours don't stand out much (except the purple, but maybe green would have been a better choice...). They just look kinda plain.

 

I have no idea how to salvage your work there. If it were me, I'd cut my losses and start again.

I agreed with darkwalker here. It looks a bit too plain, plus the fact that you use default font in it.

The '#11' is too big and squished in. I like the inside glow. The 'GMC JAM' font looks fine, but the rest seems plain. Nice gear, tho.I think I'll make something with a gear in it.

Looks pretty good. I don't think it captures the essence of a gaming comp though.

If you didn't know what the GMC Jam was, you wouldn't figure it out from the banner. People wouldn't be saying "oh cool, a gaming competition", because they wouldn't know that it was one.

Although I'm quite sure I won't win, I'll participate anyway.

So, here's my logo:

At least it's better than the sprites in my Jam game, eh? The font used is Meek.

Here's my signature banner.
gmcjambanner.png
I see now that the text inside the gear is a little missplaces... I'll edit that later.
 
And I'm not quite sure of this:

FORMAT: For submission to the competition, a PNG file is fine, however I would prefer to have a PSD or AI file from the winner. If this is not possible, then PNG will do, but it must not have any text other than that which says "GMC Jam"

May we not have any other text at all, or may we not have any other text at all if it's not .psd or .ai? Or something else?

I like the jam idea, but the purple guy creeps me out.

These logos are indeed looking mighty fine folks! It's now July; the month of the Jam is finally upon us! Looking forward to it, I can't wait to get started. Haven't been able to join a Jam in well over a year due to exams, coursework and short term memory loss! I took part in the very 1st one and then the 3rd one. This will hopefully be a glorious triumphant return for me! My body is ready to jam again!

 

Anyone have a time machine I could borrow for a few seconds? Please? Pretty please? I'll be really careful with it, promise!

The quality of the actual banner isn't great (Mostly due to the fact it seems to have been stretched at  one time or another), but using the handicap symbol for best use of handicap made me crack up :P

 

I'm aware of the bad quality...  :sweat: I've edited it a little so now it's at least a LITTLE better. I'll upload the result when I've finished with the other Best of banners.
