...I am desperately needing a Watermark designed so that I can use it on all my pictures.

..I was using one that I created that you were able to see thru and I placed it centered over the subject...This kind of killed the picture completely for viewing.

..What I am needing is for someone who has a lot more artist qualities to design a watermark that I can put into any of the four corners of a picture (or the bottom or top of a picture) after I crop and resize them. It will not be opaque and can be any color(s)you think would work.

I want it to be clearly visible without taking away from the picture yet prominent on it's own.

The wording will read - Shots by Tbars4 - in any orientation/design you can think of. (My personal artistic design so far is that wording in a line as it is shown) :rolleyes: that's why I need help

I want this to eventually become a recognizable brand in the future.

Here are a couple pictures to test out the watermark on..TIA

I am looking for one watermark that will work on all of these pictures. These pictures are a good representation of the variable colors that the watermark will have to go on..

Sounds like you're looking for a brand logo that you can also use as a watermark?

Do you have a price range in mind?

Do you just want a watermark or do you really want a logo you can use on business cards and maybe even on a t-shirt you wear to these events that also works as a watermark?

..I am in need of a watermark for pictures as mentioned.

Branding,trademarks, and logo's I am quite aware of but was hoping some members here who are creative and with artistic talent to make this simple project fun and uniquely EF, and could help in this venture without it getting all technical.

..Have you come up with some artwork which will fit my criteria with prices you want to share?

This was my first thought. Did you want something more "serious" or is this going in the right direction?

First image is the watermark and the second is testing it on a pic.

EDIT: Added 3 more

...I like them as being simple and recognizable which are both what I am looking for and I like the use of a camera, as it better explains the term "Shots" as it's not so commonly used anymore..

..If we could get the full Tbars4 in I think we have a great starting point and a usable for now watermark...

...I can see the camera and lettering changing and evolving over the years while still staying to those two basic items and still being recognizable..:biggthump

..Let me know when you get time for the revision on the name and I will beta test it this weekend..:D

The one you used as a sample is fine..;)

..Any chance of making "BY Tbars4" the same lettering size as "Shots" just to see it?

..or maybe with the "by" itself in smaller lettering and the Tbars4 in the larger same size lettering..?

..I think making the "by" smaller and lower case will let it still "Box" out while making the Tbars4 a little more prominent as to where the word Shots is not as important as whom they are by..:D

..If it looks funny what you got there will work..:dunno:

..Colin, Hopefully you will be as happy as I am about the content in which your design was used..This is the first and at this time, the only item I have used this watermark on..

..I was invited up to Reno and was the only Media allowed in this closed door meeting plus I got to take all the pictures of this very important group in action..:salute:

This was just posted up on my FB page..

Exclusive: This is the Finest group ever gathered for offroad Enthusiast as they were gathered and met today in order to better the Offroad Community. Thanks to the hard work of Fred Wiley and Jeff Knoll who worked on making this happen while it took over 2 years in the making..

Today was held the first ever, "ORBA Land Use Leadership Summit"

We owe a lot to these people so feel free to share this and tag as many people you recognize in the photo..
