I really like number 5.

From a merchandising perspective, I think all of these designs would look good as a patch, tshirt, mug etc.

I'm sure Hazard 3 has said it somewhere, but thank you to all the artists who participated in this logo redesign process.

Just a quick plug - we're still looking for a CVI logo for the Rebel Legion. Based on the artwork in this thread, now i KNOW we have some talented artists in our group. Feel free to submit a design for us to use. PM me with any questions.

THE SUBMISSION PERIOD FOR PHASE 1 IS NOW OVER.


How many additional designs have yet to be uploaded for us to discuss before Phase 2?

We've got about 5 (I think) designs I still need to upload. Sorry for the delay everyone, I'm behind due to planning my father's memorial tomorrow. Life should resume at a normal pace soon.

And yes, THANK YOU to everyone who's been participating in this, be it by graphics or comments.

No rush Jon, just curious where things were at. Hope things go smoothly tomorrow.

Designs #11 - 14 have now been added.

These are the final submissions that have been waiting for upload. I'll leave this thread for a week for discussions to take place, then start the poll before the Christmas Holiday.

Thanks again to everyone that participated. 14 designs is a GREAT turnout!

Glad to see so many entries! I have to say that I'm not a fan of the original logo, mainly because I'm tired of actual AF personnel telling me that we stole it from them; I've maintained that we can be more creative, and these entries here bear that out. Thanks for submitting!

One major consideration is- can the logo be made into a patch? Most look good for it, though 12, 13, 14 and maybe 6 and 7a could have details that are too complex. Gradients and ships with a lot of details may not translate well from pixel to thread, and that is a big concern.

I'm gonna go all official with art-directy opinions; it isn't personal, it's just what I often get paid to do. You guys submitted awesome stuff while I didn't send anything in, so don't let my comments get you down. Take or ignore any of them. Razz

7a - Represents well, but ship is too detailed. I'd try this with it- Rebel flame fit to center of rays with text overlaid, lose RL text ring, keep one large x-wing silhouette at bottom, add y-wing silhouette going other direction (at top?) or do x at top, y at bottom.

5 - Keeping basic shape is cool; lose RL text, keep SC text, fancier font. Try with ship "trails" as straight, more dynamic lines without the curve, still emanating from the flame.

10 - I like this one, kind of "Tomorrowland" in color scheme. It makes me wonder if we can't evoke the helmet markings by making the 6 horizontal outline bars look more like the helmet "comet" lines.

2/3/4 - The red "delta" reminds me of, well, Delta Airlines:

and, with the stars over it, seems slightly star-destroyery. Different color, perhaps?

9 - I like the dynamic of this one, though it recalls the Red Wings and Honda Motorcycles logos. I really can't think of a tweak to this, but want to see another stab.

At any rate, thanks for these; they are really awesome takes!

I know that at least with whichever submissions I made, they were primarily more as proof-of-concept rather than finalised design and can always be tweaked. For example, ship detail could be simplified (since all I did was cut and paste and didn't spend the time trying to make clip-art graphics).

So for whatever design might be mine, I had actually tried the comet design, but I didn't like the flow of it...I think the circular-ness of this one might work better for patches, coins, t-shirts, etc.

Could the designer of #11 flip the x-wing to point upwards so the nose is the spine of the Rebel Bird

Yes, sorry, but real-life has had me swamped. I hope to have the poll up before the holiday weekend.

There is if you're a federal worker, bank/credit union worker, or teacher. Monday is President's Day.
