This sounds great but where do we get the font that you use it only takes you to a page that has the picture of the font not the font itself.

I do love this original graphic but I think it would be nice to have another one. Just my 2 cents.....

Not being able to redesign the logo/use a different font kind of limits the whole process - especially since that was created alongside the graphics for the last one. Fonts and design are part of the same deal - without this option, you are not asking for a new design, just a new background picture!! - which is a shame! ;)

This is not only very interesting, it is also very challenging for the community. Everyone, I believe, will want to have their design up there.

SndCastie, If you'll look through the current banners you'll notice that only the name Renderosity uses that font. You'll only need the graphics that you downloaded to overlay onto your artwork. Remaining words can be a font of your choice. Therefore, kromekat, there is still flexibility within the font range and use. Renderosity and it's name/font is now a branded item, much like coca cola. It would make no sense to change such a recognizable name/typography. 8) Listen to me, talking like I'm admining this thread. But nevertheless, I'm sure this is the case.

What do you mean by no static images?

I can't wait to see the really fantastic designs (much better than the ones I can make) that are entered! Good luck to everyone! Aaron

This seems like a very great idea, especially for those of us whom are going to college for graphic design degrees. I will accept this challenge, but I agree with kromekat about the font, to not change it seems to change the aspect of changing the logo. Good luck to all whom enter.

Graphic designers usually work with some sort of design limitations. In this case the font. The font used will set the mood of an image. I'm certain that the font provided here establishes the atmosphere desired by those at Renderosity. I have no problem with using the "Renderosity Font"! . . . . . . Could you imagine someone using a font of let's say. . . . Circus or Vampire design?

this should be very fun... can i suggest a change in bbs programs? something a little more modern to fit the feel of what we do here as a community... xmb or something of the like maybe. this should be very fun.

When you say "a whole new look for Renderosity" does that include a bit more flashy chat? If we are going to represent ourselves as an art website, shouldn't we have a "flashy" chat? Check out the chat over at Eyeball Design. It's got a very "graphic srt site" feel to it.

Yes, calzgal is correct. This font represents a big part of our identity and brand. We want to preserve this. I changed the wording on the static static images only, animation are exluded. thanks tammy

Good luck everyone enetering!!

About the font. It is a rather worrying sloppy traced version of the original font, I think when looking at the jpg file. When tracing the word in Illustrator I found a world of ugly details. So now I have a perfectly straight vector-version of the thing (Illustrator eps). Hell, I even made the dimensions of the big R and Y matching those of the other characters. All of which I consider a subtle but needed step to a better look for my favourite site. It looks like the original designers of the now worldwide branded Renderosity logotype did not buy the original font... Is this be something more people are interested in? I do not mind to hand it over to the kind admins to make available with this contest. Or post it in the Free Stuff area or something...

I'd like to know how to download the font to my mac~

Phate_ ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 25 April 2003

I'd also like to know how to download the font to my mac

tammymc ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 25 April 2003

We have change the font downloads to now include several formats instead of the jpg. This should help. We did purchase the font. thanks I am looking into getting a MAC version and will notify you both via IM. thanks tammy

Phate_ ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 25 April 2003

Thanks a lot

Hoofdcommissaris ( posted at 12:00AM Sat, 26 April 2003

Okay! Thanks for reacting. I promise this will open up a whole lot of new possibilities to people. Those vectors can be imported in a lot of apps, including all kind of 3D programs that allow one to use The Brand in more creative ways! I think any MAC user can use the provided files. Back to the contest!

For those who need it, want it or can't convert it is the Renderosity "logo" in .3ds format (138kb) If you cant handle a zip file contact me at and I will send the file unzipped by email. Good luck.

Fonts still not working on mac....I just get a peace of blank paper that can't open in any program... but I guess Ill just have move my stuff to my PC at home and not place the logo here at my mac (at work) But this will give my pictures lower quality cos Ill have to mail them to myself as .jpg ...I hate mac....

About design. Simple, smoler faster! No Flash!

Phate_ ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 01 May 2003

Czarinaqueen, when I downloaded the mac verion it was called artistdownload.ez, all you have to do is unzip it

spiderwebb ( posted at 12:00AM Fri, 02 May 2003

Czarinaqueen, that file that says download.ez...once its on your desktop, click on it to highlight it, but dont double-click it. Once its highlighted, click up on your top menu bar on the stuffit symbol . Then click Unstuff from the dropdown menu. That should do it.

Hyria ( posted at 12:00AM Wed, 07 May 2003

czarianqueen, hyria's mom here, i see you use a do we. to open the ".ez" files you can do so in two ways. 1. in order to keep the file for later--in case you accidently delete it---use Zipit. You can get it at just drag/drop it onto this application to open it, or any zip file. 2. drag and drop onto stuffit expander application. this will unstuff it and it also deletes the original file so you may want to make a copy of it before you do so. this is also helpful because there are some zip files that won't open with zipit either.

odeathoflife ( posted at 12:00AM Thu, 08 May 2003 I love this one.
