Logo entry for bimmerfest

Hi Jon, I was asked by a friend of mine, Jeff (jvr826), to submit a logo...so here's an idea which shows bimmers as pinatas...it's created in a program that can scale to what ever size is needed. If you would like to use it or want changes, please let me know...thanks!

First, Jon you're right...yours kinda sucks.....

Second, I agree with those that say Cinco De Mayo shouldn't "have" to be part of the logo..so it falls on that Saturday....big deal...

just my two pesos...

Diddo to all of that.

Just because it's on the same date dosen't mean that it HAS to be represented on there. I don't mind a little hint of it in the banner, but if it's overpowering then it takes away from the reason that we're all there.

One thing you guys are forgetting: Santa Barbara, and its "Old Spanish Days Fiesta" are practically synonymous. Santa Barbara has a very strong heritage dating back to Cabrillo, hence the meaningfulness of Cinco De Mayo. For many attendees coming from far away places it can be a big deal. I can see how it wouldn't matter much to a local or somebody from San Diego...

One thing you guys are forgetting...if Cinco de Mayo is on the logo, people will not forget when the event is. I would kinda like to see a more modern interpretation of the logo in post #26. I like it though.

Exactly, so it says Cinco De Mayo, if it didn't say that, then it would say May 5 2007.
So wherever your at and someone that hasn't participated see's the shirt, they think, cool, Cinco De Mayo '07. what's wrong with that?

So yeah Jon, I'm with ya ol buddy!

Here's another idea.



We can probably do some more tweaking to it just to make it better. I toned down the roundel in the back but if its gonna cause some problems, we can just replace it win a sun or something.

And yes, all original artwork so no worries.

Let me know if that works.

Nice...

See what a good kick start can produce.

What's all the fuss about Cinco de Mayo? "Cinco de Mayo" translates to English as "May 5," so having Cinco de Mayo is a colorful way to inform the public that BF is on May 5. Now, if the fest was May 2, Dos de Mayo hasn't been ADvercrammed in our heads therefore it wouldn't work because 75% couldn't translate it.

Jon, just in case, the answer is "yes."

Instead of excluding BMW's 10 years and older, maybe include one. It would break the cookie-cutter headlights and add a classic touch to the logo.

Yeah, I know how you feel, but I gave up awhile back on being "non" represented.

Well gang, I'd say that we have a winner!



Congratulations Jon Sibal....



I appreciate the effort put in by everyone. Clearly we have some uber-talent watching this forum...

Look for Jon's winning design to grace the cover of the Official Bimmerfest 2007 Event Program cover....

Jon, you are simply amazing. Not only have you created one of the most incredible E36
BMWs on the planet, but you are an artist and a gentleman too..

THANK YOU!!

Jayu, you should be very proud too... Amazing work both of you!

Hey Jon, is it possible to get "Bimmerfest 2007" on the left breast of the T-Shirt too, or is that to much of a hassle?
Just curious?

Thanks bud, keep up the awesome work, you really need to know how much we all appreciate it.

Oh, sorry, great work Mr. Sibal!!

So, do we have time to run another quick (like 2 day maximum) poll on most votes of which BMW model and year should grace the graphic?

I vote for a 2003 E39 M5!!!

I think in the future it would be cool if we could have more time (a set date) and then set up a poll for members to vote on which design?

I just think the shirts are kinda a big deal, but no one seems to really know how to get involved until it's too late in the design process when it's something they can take part in. This is something that people are potentially going to wear; so you'd think a lot of people (more so than now) want more say in it. I am commenting mainly because each year (past 3 fore me) I overhear people asking, "Who came up with the shirt design; How can I get involved in the design", etc.

Jon, your thoughts?

As a non-artist, and as a non-Jon, I agree. Let the creative peoples have more time!
