Though not required for a Base to submit their application, many Bases like to have a logo on submission. Please post any designs here for discussion, and if you feel a consensus can't be reached and a poll is necessary, I can happily establish it.

Fyr's edit;

Poll is up for final choice of the proposed logos. Please see my post on page 14 for options. May the force be with you.

Chewie and I came to this design after long discussion. We started with a traditional green and gold with a dark blue background. We were using the green for the rebel bird and gold for Jedi Phoenix, but it looked too lurid. We shifted the colours to gold like the RL logo at the top of the page and a deep eucalypt, which looked better, but still odd against the blue background.

I wanted to link the logo in with Typhon as well as Australia, so looking at artwork online the purple sky seemed iconic for Typhon. The silvery green Jedi bird was originally a mistake, it was supposed to be gold, but as soon as we saw it, it was a "WOW" moment, looking like a eucalypt leaf and making the emblem more harmonious. The Aurubesh on the sides says NSW, linking with Ryloth base's "SA".

Looking through the base logos internationally, I think the colours and design on this one make this a rather unique and striking emblem that still follows traditional formats with some interesting new twists. Chewie recognises that this is a WIP and it will be interesting to see other designs, so everyone, please have a crack at it!

Been experimenting in Illustrator ...





I liked Chewie and Fyr's idea of placing the Jedi Order symbol and Southern Cross over the Rebel Alliance symbol so kept those elements.

The grey and jagged edges represent mountains and ruins, also hinting at the force storms and history of the planet.
The blue creates harmony between purple (representing the sky) and green (lush nature). Turquoise seems to work better with purple than a green with more yellow.

I've been told there's too much grey and not enough colour, I was trying to convince myself otherwise but I agree. The jagged edges would be more expensive to make as a patch so that idea is probably tossed out the window too.

My original idea was to have a cross between tree roots and lightning but I gave up on that after several failed designs.

Back to staring at a blank artboard. Frustrating... determined to do better but should take a break from this.

it's your logo, so I will butt out if you guys don't want my input, but I like where Dashy is going with her design. My only concern is the first one was pretty like wow !! with colour & this one is a little drab, a little too grey in my opinion, but the design is nice I think Smile

Dave, your input is appreciated, we'll hold the "butt-outs" for a more important time, lol! Wink

Dashy, please don't "look at an empty canvas" and start from scratch on this one. Your design is great, and definitely not something to throw away!

Chewie... Ixnae on the ifgnae. We need one solid, cohesive logo. Both of you have great designs, what I would like to see from here is for both of you to see of you can adapt each other's design highlight to your design. So, Swiv, try and incorporate Dashy's jagged mountanous outer edge into your emblem, and Dashy, try to see if you can use some of Swiv's vibrant colours in your emblem.

Dashy, your variant reminds me of a broken stone tablet. I would like to see a marble texture on the grey and perhaps a disc of Swiv's purple Tython sky as a background to the whole thing, as if your marble slab was a monument hovering above a Jedi temple on Tython with the sky as background.

Hard to explain... I hope these thoughts are helpful! Good luck!

Oh, and Dashy,

I spent a great deal of time getting the cohesion and proportions of the Rebel bird and Jedi Phoenix right, and I have to say that I like your refinement of those proportions. Thank you both, I love where this is going!

Looking good, Swiv. I had thought of a colour combo somewhat like that. Hmmm....

I'd dump the mosaic, it's too busy, keep it clean and subtle. Can you try it without the radiant sun behind the rebel bird, just the plain sky background?

I like the fusion, mate. Good work!

Don't forget that we'll also need logos for our Jedi temple, Clone unit, and pilot detachments... Logo variations that we don't use for the base will most probably be able to be used in other areas.

Interesting. Personally I think the striking colour contrast between the purple and the RL orange is a good thing, but this one is more classic.

Chewie, do me a favour, and put more of the sky behind the whole logo as a background to everything, instead of the white external border we have now?

Thanks!

I was thinking of replacing dashy's plain grey with something like this;



To make something like this;
