Graphics Guys.

Post by MikeSantor » 31 May 2011, 10:44

So I want to do a give away on here for a kydex holster and I want it to have "FiveseveNForum" on it with some kind of logo. Are there any Graphics guys on here that can come up with a cool logo to put on it? If we cant come up with something I was thinking maybe just the Silhouette of a fiveseven under the forum name. Any ideas?

One thing though, the detail cant be too crazy. It will ultimatly be turned into a vinyl stencil. So nothing with a TON of detail.

Also, who would I need to get in contact with to set up the give away? I dont know/care how we do it. Just figured it would be fun.

Pretty Good Mr Fist.

Another thing I was thinking (and I dont have a creative bone in my body) is kind of going off the actual FSF logo with the bullet. But put the bullet under the FSF name and make it look like a blueprint with dimensions on it. ALMOST like this, just without all the crazy detail:

Maybe somehow incorporate some more into it like FPS range, etc.


I dunno, I'm a construction worker for a reason, not a graphics designer so this idea may suck...

Where is the origin, or 0,0 in the drawing? Fiducial? Trying to understand the scale and geometry. Maybe the leftmost lower corner?

Thanks,

Tom

One thing I have been thinking is there is going to be a VERY clear outline of the 57 on the kydex. So does everyone think an outline of a 57 with a picture of a 57 would be a little redundant?

He was inquiring about the datum point of reference for the dimensions in the drawing. In this case it is the centerline and bottom plane of the cartridge.

+1 for foos' however I'd like a teensie bit more detail in the actual cartridge. Doesn't look right with out the neck and extractor rim detail.

I just did a quick trace of the bullet outline from the original banner art while I was on hold on the phone. I'll add in the ballistic tip and bullet lines sometime this weekend, probably Sunday.

I'm liking the second one, would be nice if the 'F' started just a little more to the right though.

Just a thought, what about using FsN Forum instead of spelling out fiveseveNforum? I'm fact, I would think EA would want to pick up that domain name so secure it.
