Welcome to Ute Hub

Site Logo Ideas

I like the site logo, but here are a couple quick ideas for am alternative logo if you’re interested:

  • Utemachine

    The bottom one looks cool.

  • GadValleyUte

    I like the bottom better than the top. what if you go with a white background, Red letters on UTE, and black letters on HUB?

  • The current logo is garbage. It screams University of Houston.

  • Crimson Clover

    Agree with Moose. The current logo says University of Houston to me too.

  • UGLI baby

    Bottom logo looks rad.

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Red and Black on white per requests:

    • GadValleyUte

      I like this one best. Everything pops, especially the block U, a little more on the white background

      • KiYi

        I like this one.

    • javadave

      Yep, I like this one, too.

    • LiquidUte

      Love this. Nominated.

    • NorthEZUte

      Ooooh, this one looks nice!

  • Tony (admin)

    Hey this is great. I was thinking of hiring my graphic artist friend to do me a logo, but the last one he did cost me $200!

    I whipped that logo together in maybe five minutes so I could turn the lights on with something there.

    Thanks thanks Seattle. I’m more partial to the black background with the white hub.

    • UteStuckInSeattle

      You’re welcome to use any of them you like. Let me know if you need higher resolution versions, alternate version, or other graphics for the site and I’ll be happy to oblige.

    • GadValleyUte

      It could be awesome if the logo followed uniform combos in some way

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Another little variation I thought looked kinda cool:

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Idea for a “favicon” (address bar icon) for the site:

  • Tony (admin)

    Seattle: Hit refresh and you’ll see the new logo.

    What format is the logo in? I’ll have you email me the raw file (hopefully illustrator or PS).

    • UteStuckInSeattle

      Photoshop PSD. Just tell me where to mail it and I’ll send it right over.

  • Tony (admin)

    You have BM!

  • No Redirects!!!!

    10 minutes in and no redirects! Where can I donate? 🙂

  • Tony (admin)

    How do I “love” this comment?

    • MauchDawgUte

      @admin If the community keeps growing you are going to need to move to a hosted provider with some load balancers. 🙂 I am serious about donating as well. I would love to donate knowing that work was actually being done to make site improvements. The hardest part about Utefans was knowing that your money wasn’t doing anything.


      • Tony (admin)

        I’m on a dedicated server with a few of my other sites and it is pretty powerful. I guess as it grows we will soon see how the loads are handled.

  • Collaboration

    Hopefully this becomes a collaboration. There’s a lot of talented people that could make this forum special. We need Dahlelama to work on that logo. I’d also like to see chat (maybe it’s here and I just can’t find it).

  • BioUte

    It looks like you’re using bbpress, can you include this chat?

  • Tony (admin)

    Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll look into it.

    chat is one thing I would like to implement, especially for during games.

  • BioUte

    bump – I know you’re slammed, just wanted to see if you had a chance to look into that chat plugin. I like to hang out in chat during games.

    • Hockeybeard

      Chat would definitely be a fun RealTime thing to pass the time during games.

  • Tony (admin)

    I’ve looked at a few options. The “free” ones allow only a limited number of users, like 5 or 10. Still looking around. Maybe I can get a demo one installed by tonight or tomorrow.

  • UteStuckInSeattle

    Hey, I worked literally MINUTES on that logo!

    haha, yeah we need someone with skillz to get us a kickass logo. Anyone know Dahle personally?

    • Hockeybeard

      I’m sure if Tony@admin was interested, he could send him a message on Twitter (Dahl seems pretty active there most days). Barring that, he could be contacted through his site: http://www.dahlelama.com/

    • BioUte

      Seattle, I like your logo a lot. I bumped my own old post from when the UH logo was being used – so my original comment was in regards to the UH logo.

      • UteStuckInSeattle

        heh, no worries at all. I literally threw it together in just a few minutes.

        I would LOVE to see what Dahle could put together. His stuff ROCKS and I would gladly donate to help with his time to put something together.

  • Tony (admin)

    I really like Seattle’s logo. I’ve gotten quite used to it. Looks great on the twitter too. But if this graphic guru you speak of want’s to produce something for the site I’ll definitely take a look.
