Re: Logo Collection

We ate the machine. When I get it, I'll draw it. In the meantime...

Next I'll put up the singles and badges - but I need to go to sleep- picking up Pretty Good first thing from the Post Office.

Re: Logo Collection

Yay for badges and logos!

I have an orange boilersuit enroute from Ebay as we speak. Gonna go with the Karate House era style.

Hoping you don't mind me making use of your logos for cosplay purposes?

Re: Logo Collection

i want your avatar on a sticker or badge or possibly on a shotglass? did you make that avatar? someone should make an polysics avatar or gif animations thread.

Re: Logo Collection

Awesome, just what I needed! Thanks!

But, please bring back the Carroty House logo. That was made of awesome!

Re: Logo Collection

I want mbedd's new avatar on a tin of beans.

Re: Logo Collection

You know, I'm having quite the love/hate relationship with their designers.

Aside from the constant logo changes, it's bloody impossible to figure out what fonts they're using.  How can I make Coelakanth pastiches if I can't find the font?

Re: Logo Collection

The font for the WATM cover is clearly "scrawled by a retarded child.ttf"

No idea myself- just redrew them all- The only one I recognised was for the NITT one- the title is written in 'Futura Bk BT' - always one of my favorites- so rather glad they used it.
I think the new one they use on the recent singles is Futura Hv BT - but the bold version- it seems to match anyway.

As for the rest - no idea - they are possibly custom made - or rather they do what I usually do when I have to knock up a logo or something- pick a font as a base - then fiddle with it a bit, stretching a few lines, adding a few bits here and there. The new badge font is definitely a warped font, and a bugger to get exact too- I have a feeling I may have put a bit to much extra detail in some of the letters - I think the 'I' for example shouldn't have the slighty curved off corners I put on, but it was hard to tell with the small picture I was using.

EDIT to add more waffle - and beans - Bean tins would be a good idea though - might do full wrap around print offs. I quite liked those badges with the altered brand name logos that they did - pizza hut, 7up etc. I might corrupt a few consumer products myself - the handy side effect of my job is that I get a load of corporate fonts - got the Vodafone one last week for example, so there is plenty of meddling I can do.

It all reminds me warmly of those Pop Will Eat Itself 'Pepsi' t-shirts that they used to sell. I used to love P.W.E.I. - made the mistake of listening to a few of their lp's recently - they haven't aged well. Their covers, logos and artwork is still amazing though - the Designers Republic were great back then. They seemed to die after WipEout.

Man that's gonna take some beating for the nerdiest dullest post on this board - (give me a month)

As for Carroty House - it may come back new and improved, in hologramitic thermal 3D lenticulated ultra-scope-a-vision - drawd with a big crayon and everything.

Re: Logo Collection

Continuing from my previous post, I thought I'd start the corporate tampering part of this thread. Rather fond of this one...

Once you Pop you just can't stop.
here's both versions - with shades and without

edit- link update

Vodafone - I didn't bother with an illustrator file for the shaded one because the fancy shiny bits I put on it didn't seem to export from flash - illustrator is arse..

Re: Logo Collection

Last orders for the t shirts by the way - turning that bit of the shop off on Tuesday. I've also put the new ones I've added to this thread today up there so there's quite a lot of choice now.
EDIT - to remove link - shop closed cus zazzle is better

EDIT AGAIN- oooooops, just got busted for using the pringles one on cafe press.

EDIT YET AGAIN - hah 'Zazzle' couldn't care less about copyright, just ordered this.............

You could have three lines but I'm sure you already thought of this...

"Once you
For Young Electric Pop
You-You-You can't stop."

Those are all really really good and if I had some money to spend I might indulge myself but alas... it shall have to wait.

Re: Logo Collection

I would love the ZX one on a Plain black T

WANT!

Re: Logo Collection

I want to steal the pringles one for an avatar or something, man that is so cool. And big ups on the logos.

Re: Logo Collection

Dude, could you please re-upload the new ones? They're the only ones I forgot to get. Sendspace links expire after a couple of weeks, I think mediafire is a good one for leaving files up for long periods of time without activity.

Re: Logo Collection

Right. Putting together my cosplay this weekend. Any chance of a reupload on the Karate House era logos?

Re: Logo Collection

Arse- didn't realise they expired that quick- yeah no probs, I'll have to do it tomorrow though, just about to get some sleep- long trip home today.

Re: Logo Collection

Ta very much.

Re: Logo Collection

request - get back to doing all the badges!  My NITT and Eno badges are third rate.

Re: Logo Collection

will do, when work dies down a bit. here's a request from me too - has anyone got a better version of the arm badge logo thing that goes with the NEU costume - can only find a small one to use, and i would prefer it to be as acurate as possible

any requests for corporate logo monging - It seems necessary to do a digital coffee one - but the nescafe logo is very boring. Open to any ideas.

How about the starbucks logo for Digital Coffee?

Re: Logo Collection

That logo reminds me too much of Sarah Brightman for some reason - god I loath that woman
