I think we should have one Grav Awards category this year and it's "Best Grav Awards Logo" - winner MAV.

Really glad your guy like and good to see you all again. :china
It always coming back here this time of year. It's like a vaca on the slopes.
Gondee you dont have to create an award for me... however if it's not to much trouble, would Merqury City
be willing to change it's logo? I'm thinking...
Image

Just though I'd ask... :D

Now if we're going to do this, we're going to need award categories and vote counters.

Holy crap Mav, that would actually make a great site logo...not that my opinion has any bearing! :P

I could definitely count votes this year, if folks trust me with that! :D

Oh, and for new folks like Jack and for the sake of deciding what to use this year, here are the voting categories for the last three years:

GA9 | Click to reveal hidden content
Gravitude MVP x3: Gravitude MVP's are Grav Bar members that stand out and keep this place running. Whether it be the technical, entertaining, informational, SSX spirit, or anything else, the Grav Bar just wouldn't be the same without them. Vote for three of them.

Best Fan Fiction Author: If there were an SSX novel, they'd be writing it.

Best SSX Fanboy/girl: Maybe they're a little over the top, but what can you say, they just LOVE SSX.

* SSX (2013) MVP Racer (WS)
* SSX (2013) MVP Racer (Non-WS)
* SSX (2013) MVP Trickster
* SSX (2013) MVP Survivalist
* SSX (2013) MVP Overall


So yeah, there are definitely some that seem...obsolete? I think the biggest question is what we'll do with the player awards. Seems fair to add back in an "SSX Original Recipe" award since there's been a resurgence in the Original and Tircky scenes thanks to Jack, alpmaster, Krishna, etc.

That's a badass logo mav!

Although I think if the MC.com logo should be changed it would be better to have a competition where everyone can submit their design suggestions!

I'm cool with that if you guys want to arrange that. I've tried many times in the past to design something that would work on many levels, it's tougher than it looks.

A site logo needs to accomplish the following:

1) it needs to be able to shrunk down to tiny size and still work. Needs to be able to be reduced to black/white to work with print media (say, if EA put out something with our logo on it or similar.) The Merq City logo is old and busted but it does shrink down nicely and is simple enough to be reduced to one color and still work. It's the original one and I've never found something I cared enough for to do AAAALLLL the work it would take to replace it across all the pages of the site and all the custom art that contains it. (Yes, we use it primarily because it's what we have always used it - that's a large hurdle to overcome.) If you're going to rebrand a site, it needs to be done across more than ten years of art and pages on this site.

2) Needs to say "video games + snowboarding" in one logo. You can make a snowboarding type logo pretty easy by copying existing tropes (ala Burton), but creating a logo that says "we're a VIDEO GAME snowboarding site" it tougher than it looks.

3) Needs to have a big idea behind it that makes people say "oh wow, that's cool." This is what I find toughest about designing a logo for Merq City. I can design something with trees and snowboards. I can design snowboard type logos. I can design video game-esque logos - but tying it all together is far more difficult than it sounds.

:heh Dude, you know I haven't found the time or motivation to do the two themes I still need to finish for you, OR the ones Tunes did for us in 2012. I'm the main barrier to this, so I would have to dissuade him from doing all that work. But if you guys wanna work on a new logo, and go back and forth and maybe help inspire each other to find something I couldn't? Go for it! :yes :thumbsup

That was a SICK theme, though!!

A contest would be very fun. Not sure if I could come up with something or not, but if a bunch of people pitched in their own designs we might be able to figure out something we couldn't have on our own! :cheers
