    Well, my son (who is a gear head - specifically Mustang) is wanting me to work on a forum for him.
    He kinda liked the domain mustangbit.com, so I went ahead and registered it and have been working on a logo for him.


    Creative suggestions on the design so far would be welcome, as I am very design challenged (even tho' I am learning the technical aspects of Photoshop).

    I would probably definitely beat you in a fight for the title of "Worst design skills ever" :D but have you considered having the domain name down the side of the car, like a graphic?

    Agree with Brogan actually, having the domain name like as a Side Stripe of the car might look better.

    That's actually a good suggestion.

    if you want to start giving the appearance in skewing/angle the text you can either use @Tracy Perry in photoshop and on your text layer do a Type >> Convert to shape then play around giving it perspective with either Edit >> Transform Path >> Distort or Edit >> Transform Path >> Perspective like so (Below)

    Actually like the base format of this one. Where you pull the car image from? I always like to run the background of them as transparent in case I use an off-color (anything other than white) in the header. I STILL haven't gotten around to loading windows up on one of the Linux boxes yet. Yes, I'm a procrastinator. :whistle:

    Going to have to work on the fonts and text location a little. Hate windows limited fonts.

    take a look at dafont.com for some free (or paid) ones. It's not like all your users need the font too if your just using it for a logo and so saving it as an image anyway. Might find something more 'car' like for example.

    Careful with the domain. I remember GM and Ford throwing hissy fits a few years back about car names being used in domain names, and seizing a few.
