I agree that the black on orange didn't look to good, you can all hit me with something for coming up with that idea. The problem is what colour to use instead though.

I like the design of it. But I agree that the black/orange combo looks a little weird next to the flag colors.

I don't know which color to use instead - red? green? blue? Yellow?

OK, we'll make a nice clean version of it tomorrow or Wednesday night then when Janne is up here and then I'll post it up for your further approval.

Feedback aon the text, do you like the positioning, anything I should add or remove, any preference on font?

Cheers

I deffinitely like the second version better than the first. Very Happy

Hmm, yes, it needs to be 'cleaned up', but otherwise it looks rather good.

I think the logo, should be equal colored all over, instead of going from one blue to very light blue. Will also make it easier to make as a patch.
Second, I think the wampa's cave should be bigger; it has lost some of it's grandour being scaled down. Rolling Eyes
The text: Wampa's cave, should be rounded off like the rest of the text, following the inder line.

Can you do a version, with just 'Nordic Outpost' at the top and then 'Wampa's cave' in the bottom? Just out of curiosity at how it would look. Wink
Also just to be demanding, can you do a second version of the first logo you did, but with the new colors? And perhaps scaled down the text a little/find a better typo.

And last. How would it look with a dark grey background instead of black?

That should be all my questions. And yes I ask for multiple versions, so we have more variations to choose from. Very Happy

I agree with what Lora just said.

And I was wondering if you could do a version with the flag circle turned - so we don't have the flags in the same position as NG has, if you know what I mean. Sortof turned 'upside down'.



And perhaps having Nordic Outpost on top and the Wampa's cave on the bottom, with Rebel Legion in the middle?

Multiple versioning is the only way to make sure you get what you want Wink I know that kast one was a bit rough and messy it's because Janne made it from my jpg file rather than from a psd file so it will always look crappy. As I said above, we'll make a cleaned up version while he is here over the next day or two and I'll be able to make plenty of different versions for you.

I would do it right now but I need to learn a few Photoshop tricks first.

A few more attempts for you to think about. I've tried to incorporate most of your ideas into the different options so you can pick and choose which you like and which should go. The main one I ahve not done is one without the RebelLegion text around the edge. I did do a version with RL across the front but it looked crap so I binned it. Anyway, more feedback and I'll then tweak further...

New text colours, grey background, plain blue rebellion logo, digital cave, rotated flags...


Replaced the cave with a wampa. I can give the wampa more work to make it look better...


Wampa in cave mouth using alliance logo as the outline for teh cave...


What do you think?

The middle one with the wampa looks best to me, it's really nice with a creature that stands out. I also got the feeling from our discussion that most of us wanted a wampa but we settled for the cave when we couldn't get hold of a nice wampa picture. The bottom one, with the wampa in the cave, looked too cramped for me, and the wampa and cave would probably be very small if you tried to make a patch of it.

Overall the colouring and the rotation of flags is fine by me. The only thing is of course that it would be nice to have "wampa's cave" included somewhere, but to be honest I'm thinking that in that case it would have to drop the "rebel legion" since it wouldn't look good with too much text. After all it's supposed to be a graphic symbol, not a novel. It would be nice to see a version with all the text within the circle though. An idea would be to keep Rebel Legion where it is, but then have Nordic Outpost - Wampa's Cave in a smaller font so both fits on the bottom half.

I think I agree with Johanna - I love the middle one as well.

The black background looks nicest, I think.

And I don't think it looks bad at all with 'Wampa's Cave' added to the bottom line.

And yes, it did help a lot to have the flags turned - it doesn't look as much as if we've just been copycats now Smile

Yi-haw, I'm in!!!

Hope Andrews and my work on the badge/patch/logo is somewhat close to what you're looking for. Very Happy

Whenever you're satisfied with one of the drafts, we'll go ahead and make a high resolution, detailed version for your final approval.
