Hello all guards. I would like to have the design of the delegation logo more collaborative than competitive. I have some ideas but I'm interested in input for the next week or so, then will move forward.

First and foremost, do we want "For the Republic!" as a slogan? I like it.

Second, anyone with excellent, well lit, images, helmet in particular or ideas do share, much appreciated.

As Lora Skywalker said, "Bring on the blue!"

Thanks.

I'm okay with "For the Republic" but also prefer/like "For the Senate" or "For the Democracy" as they don't protect the Republic in itself, that's the Clonetrooper job :p or the jedi maybe.

Anyhow, I'm the motto should be on the base logo ? It's like "We are the good guys" it's not on RL logo Smile

About pics, you want ref pics or costume pics ??? And what is it for ? Is it for reference to make a logo proposition or something else ?
Because if first option, does it means your logo idea is to feature a senate guard helmet on it ?
-> Except if you have an idea to fight this, it means choosing only one costume to represent on the logo, while there will be multiple under this delegation. Ep 1-2 or ep 3 guard ? Senate commando.. ?
Could be better to get something neutral from that point of view. The characteristic blaster is already a bit more but not seen used by commandos so far unfortunately.

Maybe could we focus logo on coruscant ?
Maybe we could use this as background...

Full res: http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/1/16/Coruscant-EotE.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130908205521

And here are some iconic view from coruscant I would say :

Full res : http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/starwars/images/0/02/Galactic_Senate.png/revision/latest?cb=20130118044253

I really like the idea of a stylised Coruscant night view as background of the logo. Smile And last pics could merge well with it to separate in 2 part the logo.
Of course some blue is necessary Razz

You also have senate logos that could be used :

https://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/lucasfilm/images/0/05/Galactic_senate.svg.png/revision/latest?cb=20130925181338

I have a little idea I sketch up quickly, I unfortunately don't have time this week to play more to make something looking nice. But I think you will get the global idea ! Anyone can feel free to stole it Smile

For sure, there should be blue in it. Smile

Pictures of Senate Guards with good lighting to draft logo ideas, please.

Yes, there are a couple variations of the costume represented by this group, but the general look of Senate guards is closely tied together. I would tend to not use one of the open face designs so it wasn't so specific to a single individual, but I won't be harmed if we go with a variation different than mine. I think the most dynamic logo would have a character, probably singular on it.

For those who don't know, I've designed over 20 RL Logos, including several Bases, Rogue Base, Takodana Base, about 10 Jedi Temples, and others as well as helping refine many, many more. I help approve on all logos. I design them professionally and have for years. Let's get ideas together and I can make something nice.

I don't feel strongly about a slogan on it, it is just a point of discussion. Less is more, we want to have something that is eye-catching, but need not tell the whole story of the Blue guards all at once. Something more concise than too busy in the visual is preferred.

Well you have my opinion on getting a specific costume represented there...
But I guess we should not say anything to the choice of ep3 on logo as there are already 3 times more ep3 validated than ep1 guards. (representing ep3 specifically will only increase this difference I think)


My ref pics for ep1 version mainly :

Possible pose choice then with 3 differents costumes in it

This link is broken is there another? Would love to see what you have.

The image above would be grand for a cover or poster, but too much for a logo.

This made me think of Doctor Who. Very Gallifreyan. Wink

Hey ! Haven't seen anything about that since mid July ?

I found a design on internet who inspired me for our logo !
I have absolutely no time to make something good quality for now, I just did a 5minutes collage to show the idea, I think you'll get it.
I would be able to make good quality version after 16th September !

What do you guys think of it ? Smile
The white parts would be silver.

Nice to see another suggestion. Smile

I think the text would be too 'to the side' and overall it tilts, but it's a fine idea.

And since I'm apparently now aiming to join the guards next year, I'm even more interested in what the logo will be. Wink

Thanks.

I'm waiting on those photos from Darkwar, and need to close a couple open projects but can then give this my full attention and we can get this wrapped up.

I like a couple things going on with this, and it fits with some of what I have in mind.

If I get get some photos from a variety of angles from members, in particular 3/4 views I can put it together. Thanks.

Do you need pictures from the movies? I'm working on making reference galleries for the guards anyway, so if you want I can prioritize it. Smile

To be in line with LFL regulations I was looking for well lit 3/4 images of members.

Any movie guard reference would be great to refer to as well, thanks.
