Looking for a graphic artist
 
Can't pay much. We have a tailgate logo that is copyright infringement laden.

We need a graphic artist to design a copy that isn't. I know a lot of your have custom art for your tailgate, any references?

I'd like to see your artwork. Humor me.

My friend Nelo that was at the GB tailgate and came with me to playoff game is a graphic designer, he can probably give you a deal.

No I designed his hat, and my brother did the work. My brother has only. Been to one game which was the 1st game last year against the colts.

What do you want it to look like? I'm not a graphic artist, but depending on your expectations, I may be able to help you out with something temporary until you can get something you really want.

Are you allowed to have the Texans logo or is that copyright infringement as well?

Re: Looking for a graphic artist
 
What do you want to do with it?

Complete redesign or remove toro and texans logo?

How big of a banner and what type of material?

What price range?

We put a hop on the glass instead of the Texans logo.

Our artist 'changed' Toro but I'm not sure he changed it enough to avoid any grumpy Texans.

That's what I am looking for, something very similar but with a errr 'blue bull man' that doesn't scream - hey - that's an ever so slightly changed Toro logo from the internet.

Danny - right now we're just looking for art. But at some point we'll probably want a banner some where near 4 foot by 2 foot.

You can always pay a small fee to license some clipart, etc.

Here's an example I found that could easily accommodate a little Texans tweaking. $5-$50 depending on pixel size, but with a license, you can buy and resize on your own.

I sent it to Nelo, let me see what he does with it.

I know a guy in Austin that might be able to help. Not sure what his rates are like, but I can put you in touch with him. Let me know if you want me to reach out to him.

marshallgraphix.com. They do outstanding work at a reasonable rate. They did the redesign of my company logo and we have used them for vehicle graphics, shirts, hats, tri-fold brochures, and a banner. Each one was an even bigger home run than the previous. This guy is good at thinking up designs that fit what you are looking for.

Re: Looking for a graphic artist
 
Ok so this is what I pitched to him, tell me what you think?

On top it would have BCB with second B inverted and each B with horns on the top corners, and the letters in blue, white and red.

In the middle two bulls facing each other, one red and one blue each extending an arm out offering a beer in hand with there interior hand in a fist.

At the bottom a small thin banner that would read blue crew brewers in steel blue, and in texans style font.

PM me your number and I can send you a pic of the bull. He's a little meaner looking but I like him, and right now he's holding a bomb soon to be beer.

Let me know what you think, waiting to see how much he would charge, but I'm sure we would get a Big BC discount.

Thanks, our 'artist' made a temp logo for our Koozies.



Thanks to everyone else, I think I responded to everyone in a PM.
