Exclamation Need HELP from the photoshoppers!

Ok guys. I need a little help. I've been trying to get something done for a while now and I haven't the slightest idea how to do the following. Here's what I need. Can anyone take the "CAMARO" from below or from another picture somewhere (yes, it MUST be perfect), add "5.COM" and put this all on a white background...or black background (is fine). But, I need a picture of CAMARO5.COM in that new block (90 degree angles) font and in the silver fade color like you see from the picture below.

If anyone could do this, it would be greatly appreciated. You just might get something out of it too! If anyone has any questions, please ask. I don't want someone spending all day trying to get it "right" only to find it needed a little something different. So, block letters just like on the pic and on the car. A fade is fine like in the pic...or it can be solid silver (fade like pic is MUCH more preferred although I'd like to see both), and must say CAMARO5.COM. Can ya'll guess what I'm doing?!?!?!

Can it have the orange outline...or do you want just a slightly darker silver outline?

Here ya are TAG... I'm proud of this...I can change the colors if you want (background, inside's gradient, and border). I can also shink or enlarge this without affecting quality. I saved an enormous copy (this is the "small" version :eek on my 'Puter. Again, I hope this is what you were looking for!!!

And I can guess what you're doing...but I haven't the foggiest really... I DO know that I like this. It's very sharp - and masculine looking, like the Camaro itself. Hey Good idea, Dragoneye, lets refer to this as "Camaro-Font", from now on!!

Holy crap, that is AWESOME! Looking at it from a person who doesn't know the site's name...do you think they might mistake the 5 for an S? How about we do something w/ the 5 to make it REALLY look like a 5? Maybe a different color, or shade, or something (size?). I'm just worried that when people see it, they might think "CAMAROS.COM" and not "CAMARO5.COM".

But, that looks fantastic!!!

Personally, I think that that will always happen with 5's and S's unfortunately. I know what you mean. I actually "made" that number so it would match with the "Camaro-font" . If we change the shape, it'll look goofy; out of place, and if we want it to match the block lettering, then it'll have to stay like that.

Tell you what, If you stay online for 15 minutes or so. I'll run it through photoshop and see what I can do, okay? (I'll try and hexagon-looking the bottom of the 5.)

Good idea Killer, but that would be too out of place, I think. If you really want me to after this, I will. but before that - hows this TAG?

Obviously, I'll clean it up, and make that bottom-fat portion of the 5 a little wider, maybe...

EDIT: Like this,

Those look GREAT!!! I really like how the 5 has the angles in the lower portion only. It gives it much better definition.

Just for sh!ts and grins, can you flip the color of the 5? If you can't change the outline to white w/ the inside red, you could do the 5 all red or possibly all blue?...a nice rich blue (maybe royal blue?). I would like to see how that looks and if it stands out more making it easier to recognize.

Again, those look reaaaaaallly good. You do very good work! And FAST!

Try this, first. I think a solid-color '5' would ruin the effect of the border around the other letters...

EDIT: HOLY CRAP!!! I LOVE THIS!!!

Joe, I think we have a winner. Let's keep it just like this. NOW...I want to get some other opinions on this before moving forward. Personally, I think it's bad @ss!!!

Okay, only opinion I have is that it should use a blue outline/blue 5 rather than the red....the new version of the site went with blue, so to keep with that theme....

But, it looks awesome.

Makes Sense.... (this is so fun)
I added a little "attention-getter" if you don't like it, let me know - and I'll get rid of it.

I like the blue as well. I also like the fade, but with this being for die cut, only the letters would be seen and not the background.

Are stickers for Camaro5.com going to be made from this design? If so, I think it would be AWESOME!!

I've been wanting to do some for a while now, But, I can't PS well, so...I've been putting it off. Thanks to some great work from Joe, we might be able to get this done. I'm going to see if they can do multiple colors as well.

I'm glad I didn't even try with Dragon on the job, I'd have felt like a fool.

On that note, sorry, I totally forgot about it when I got home late last night. :(

I don't know if I should take that as a compliment, or feel bad...

BTW: here's both of them together, for voting purposes....hmm. A poll, perhaps, TAG (I assume we all agree that the inverted "5" is the way to go)
