FINAL FACTIONAL LOGOS

Postby Oblivion » Fri Aug 25, 2006 4:35 am

..at least I hope it's final.

..Wait! listen to me first before compalining. :wink: The proposed logos once were too complicated ot be used on the ships. i.e. they work well on flags but not on starship hulls. :wink:

So here are the logos I used. I complete each as I go on. Some I made myself , some derived from fonts, etc. all are original, however.

Confed Navy Primary:(Which looks better?)

Confed Navy Secondary:
Image
Image

Homeland Security Primary:
Image

Homeland Security IntelSec:
Image

Merchant Primary:
Image

Purist Primary:(BTW: WHAT is the official designation for Purists?)
Image

Pirate Primary:
Image

Suggestions. Etc. Please only react if you have something to replace these. :roll: lol. It's tiresome to squabble on logos.

I love that pirate logo.

I'd be interested to see the confed logo with a blue eagle, gold U, and white star combined. The current eagle/U combinations blend together too much making it hard to look at. Logos should be clean.

Bravo again for all the work and ideas. Here are my first thoughts:

The Confed Navy promary logos are too crowded. The contrast between eagle u-shape and background isn't good enough (white and white on white or black and black on dark blue). If you make these pictures smaller none of these shapes can be distinguished.

Why didn't you take that four-pointed star from the homeland security texture of the admonisher? To me, it looks more prominent than the white five-pointed version. Also the blue seems too saturated when compared to it. Isn't the color theme desaturated (with a little grey) blue and grey?

I like the colors of the Merchant logo. They go well together. I'm not too fond of initials though. (You know, it's the future. Writing could be different.) What do you think of a more octagon shape instead of a square and then adding some internal structure also playing with different line widths?

The pirate logo looks good. There just remains the question why pirates with very probably stolen ships (good disguise) are giving them a paint job (bad disguise).

Okay, I'll try a stylized eagle form, as I was intending to, :wink: .

oh eyah, forgot. :lol: But it only exists for the admonsher. Other ships have the more prominent shield.

And yeah, teh blue is a different shade, no worries tho, I'll provide proper hue next time.

I'll see what I can do with the merchie

disguises are useless anyway, probably with ship masking and all. As I said, it's for fun ;) Maybe their kingpins ride in style.

Thanks for feedback. Have to go now.

Maybe have pirates pick a scheme at random. Anything barring Aeran and Rlaan could really be expected (including the pirate one, it kicks ass!).

darn forgot the new proposals! :wink:

Anyway, forget about these. Some will do some won't. What matters is they would look good on ships. Don't shoot me okay? :lol:
