Jstull70 got their new logo design by running a design contest:
logo for University of Washington Human Powered Submarine, or acronym UWHPS
Check out Jstull70's Logo design contest…
The University of Washington Human Powered Submarine Team is a group of engineering students at the University of Washington who build and compete in the annual International human powered submarine races. Most of the media surrounding the team is for one of two things. First, to raise support and sponsorships through companies in the Seattle area. Most of these companies have some connection to either engineering, the maritime industry or both in some way. Secondly we want to raise excitement and awareness around the UW student body. Similar to the companies we deal with, most of the students we promote to have an interest in the engineering and/or maritime fields. Additionally, while promotion to college students is important, we want to maintain a professional appearance as we interact with local companies when raising support. Here is a link to the existing site with the current logo https://sites.google.com/site/washingtonhps/ ***UPDATE*** Here is a link to the video of the last races we competed in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJxVNVTJq8Y ***UPDATE #2*** Keep in mind that scuba diving plays a big role in our competition. This means masks and scuba tanks/gear could be used in the symbol if it works. Just an idea...
Logo types to explore
NEW NOTE: It might be best to stay away from the large circle containing letters. Many of you have done this so far, and a few have incorporated it somewhat well (for what we're looking for), but having the circle/band with text be encircling something but having nothing outside it, we don't particularly like. If you're adding other shapes/graphics outside it, it is better, but having a large circular band with text sitting alone in space is not to our taste (or at least it hasn't been so far, so keep this in mind). Four of the images we have uploaded are past designs we were considering for paint jobs for our sub. They are simply for reference and in case you need the hull geometry for a design. One of the designs was for a T-shirt, and the design of the sub piercing the U and W is our current logo. We've always been fans of weapon manufacturer & military logos, but obviously we can't have something super militaristic due to the fact that we're a part of a school (edgy isn't bad though), but the general look we like. This of course doesn't mean the logo has to go in this direction though. We want a design that incorporates the general design of our sub, and preferably shows the fact that we're racing it, and/or also building/designing it (our general design of the sub is the most important of these however, and it may be difficult to show these last two things I just mentioned). We don't care if you take some liberty with the hull shape, but we'd prefer if you didn't completely redesign it (unless you can somehow make it look way cooler, hah). Our hull shape changes every couple years, which is why having a directly copy of the current design isn't necessary. For reference, our general design is a revolved airfoil (like an ellipse) with a window up front (on top and bottom), four rudders, and a propeller. Googling Human Powered Submarine, or even better, looking at photos on our website, will give a good indicator as to what the sub looks like. Also, remember that this is a competition between schools, so any UW (huskies) or even UW mascot symbols could be helpful. But i'm just throwing out ideas. If you want a 3D model (that can be viewed with free software) of the hull geometry, let us know and we can post it.
