Users registered after October 1st can still express their opinion, but their votes are not added to the total. I check every user's joining date to ensure consistency.

My best showing ever in an event. I'm honored. This was another ridiculously tough contest. We have some talented folks here.

BTW that typeface I used is really janky, it jumps around all over the place, so I had to kern it like nuts. I even had to drop the G and O by two points to get everything to line up. So, I'm as proud of myself for the work I put into it, and how much more thought I put into a concept than I used to, as much as anything. That, I think, is the value of these contests.

It's great that you want to make it better. It would be most effective to start a thread to address it, especially now that we're able to with the event being over.

It looked pretty good Jake.

I thought that there was a bit too much space between the "A" and the "W", and the large "O" and "S" could have been a little less large.

Perhaps the top of those 2 letters could have been flush with the top of "Los Angeles".

It was a nice clean font that maybe could have used a little more something...

Maybe the "A" could have been a sheriff's star...something like that.

It was a pretty good start, but it didn't really feel like an "outlaw" typeface to me. The colors and layout? You nailed it. Sparky's right - the kerning between the A and W is a bit much, but switching the font for "Outlaws" (the Los Angeles part could be fine left as is) could easily fix that.

If you were looking to add a visual element to the logo, any sort of western element could work. A Hat, a sheriff's badge, barbed wire, a bandana, cow skull, maybe even a bullet hole? Longhorns as the bar in the A would be unique!
