Submission: SN1P3R001 ( Bold Logo v2.0 )
« on: Oct 21, 2011, 08:12 PM »
Here's my humble submission. I'm new to vector art, but I've been doing logos using GIMP for ages, so I figured I'd learn a new skill and put it to use.



NOTE: The background will be transparent. I'm just using the white background because it's easier to see the gray/black on than the brown of the forums. The lettering is cut out of the image, so it'll show up as whatever is behind it.

I like feedback; be as harsh as you want (I can take it, promise).  This is a draft version, and it is kind of rough in some places. It'll be fixed as more feedback comes in. :)

Hey Sniper,

Thanks for submitting.

I love the idea. However, if I could make one recommendation. Although the Logo is unique I think it is a little too abstract. People might not know what it is right away or even know what it is trying to display. If there was a way to incorporate the same idea but make it more clear that it is trying to display LD50; I think it might be worth trying.

And updated. Version 2.0 is simpler and cleaner than Version 1, and it's way less complex.

I like it!

Just a reminder: There is no limit on how many times you can tweak it if you desire. We will not be judging the logo's until Nov 6th. So make sure to get all final submissions in by then.

Thanks and good luck!

I think it would be cool with fancy techno font numbers instead of the word fifty.. but thats just me.  Otherwise pretty cool.  I wish I had a clue with vector stuff, I am a mere photoshop junkie.

I want to see version 1; I hope it can be re-posted.

We don't all have the same taste, and I'd like to see something a bit less literal.

Hrm. The sharp mod reminds me a bit of a delta which is something I hadn't considered. You could play with a lambda delta shape, but that would probably look too much like the letter M or mountains or a sorority :-[, none of which we want. You could also try messing with the leth and dorn (LD) symbols which would lend some Star Wars cred.

As it stands currently, I like the abstract one better.

I'll play with it when I get home. I'm not sure I'll be able to do much with the aurebesh, but I might be able to pull something off.

This just reminded me, I have another version of this where the text is stretched to be the same height as the width of the L. this means that it cuts the space up into smaller chunks, with letter-shaped negative space in between. It'd kind of an odd abstract kinda' think, but it looks rather neat. I'll post it when I'm home.
