In order to make an Endor Base Banner (or t-shirts, anything large) we needed to convert the low resolution Endor Base logo to a vector format. Matt contacted Justin (Primrodo) for help and he did a lot of work to redraw our logo (thanks Justin!) There were just a few things we wanted to fine tune a bit more - so since it's our base and I do know my way around Illustrator, I did some more work on it today.

Here's the result of our collaborative effort:



Some of you may notice that the font used for the text "Rebel Legion" is different than the original. I spent a few hours searching font libraries and just couldn't find it. Arial Black was the closest I could find and it's not quite as extended.

For comparison, this is our original low res logo:



Let me know what you all think.

I think it looks great, good for making some more patches, wouldn't you say?

I like it. Is that a blue or a shade of purple? Do you think we should set a deadline for people to post thoughts and/or changes until we finalize it? Then we can have different designs to choose from for banner ideas.

Thanks, Kathy and Justin!

Matt - that Rebel symbol is a shade of blue. What happens is, when we (meaning Jusin or I or anyone with Adobe Illustrator - even a print shop) imports that older RGB graphic into Illustrator, it has to be converted to CMYK color system for printing. The color automatically gets changed to the softer blue. It's funny, for some reason a lot of RBG colors look totally different when they get converted to CMYK.

This web page shows an example and explains it a bit:

If you are unhappy with the slightly purple cast of the font and symbol, I can select a color that leans more true blue (like used on our patches).

I've made another couple of options I'd like people to look at.

1) I added a little more blue to the type and symbol. It's not as pastel blue as the first one I posted



2) Arial is a very generic font. It looks fine, but I felt like the title could use a little more style. I'm kind of liking this Denmark Font. (I didn't kern the spacing on the letters, just swapped out the type quickly. I'd fine tune the type if we went with this).



Opinions?

I like the more "true blue" color and I'm really liking that Denmark font. Looks great!
