    Hi folks. I do a lot of graphics work as part of my duties here and elsewhere, but I am more an innovator than an inventor. I need to create silver, gold and platinum membership icons, founding member silver, gold and platinum membership icons and a Charter Lifetime Member icon. The charter lifetime member icon should be 75X75 pixels or smaller and the others can be up to 150 pixels wide, but should not be taller than maybe 30 pixels. The colors should stand out without clashing with the current colors and the icons should not be animated. I also want to revamp the contributor icons. These are all the same basic icon with increments from 1 to 10, to denote the number of donations someone has made. I really don't like the current one. It is too tall and it looks cheesy. I would like it to be the same size and shape as the membership icons, but with a different color scheme.

    I am having no luck coming up with anything for these and I want them to be really nice. I would greatly appreciate it if some of the more graphics-minded folks out there could come up with something for me. I can't afford to pay someone to do it, but I will give a Charter Lifetime Membership to someone who submits a set of icons (Outlined above) that I can use. I would like something distinctive, without being gaudy. I want something that will look professional and classy. I really appreciate it.

    I'm better at manipulating photos, but I'll see what I can come up with.

    Why not different colored Glocks? Silver, gold, etc.

    Hmmmm Sounds like glocktalk.com in general needs a logo, a branding of some sort. I'm thinking something more than just a Glock or GT, not sure what though but if you think of the Glock, they have one in that the G surrounds the lock, maybe something similar with Glock Talk or GT.com or something, again, I don't know.:) If GT had a logo then it would be easy to just use that in various colors maybe.

    Rather, if the platinum one had those sun rays coming off it like a reflection in a couple places.

    I'll be happy with whatever it is y'all come up with, but I for one don't own a Glock (sold my G36 for an XD quite some time ago). Not sure I'd be too crazy about a Glock icon... maybe a "GT" icon... or maybe different caliber rounds to represent each level... a .45 for platinum, .40 for silver, etc...

    Just food for thought...
