Make a quilt sown together in a typical keyboard layout?

That's a great idea! And maybe different people could contribute squares for it?

So if I wanted to have something made for myself and wanted to use the logo who do I need to ask permission from?

I don't mind seeing the designs used elsewhere. Shoot me a PM with your email. Maybe there's someplace on the site where they can be hosted? I'm assuming the Mods are fine with me sharing the files. If not, let me know.

Dropbox or drive may work. Otherwise someone ping imav and he may host them on his site for you.

Didn't want to say it, but yeah -- GH AIDS quilt IC anyone? And me, with no 'meh' smiley.

I got two requests for GH logos via PM, one suitable for a travel mug, and another for a mousepad. I will post the art here once I tweak them a bit. I don't know how to submit stuff to the wiki. How would I do that?

Yeah, that's what I would prefer to host, because they can then be resized without any loss of quality. Make me a wiki contributor and I'll make a wiki page for contributed geekhack logos.

EDIT: It wouldn't be a bad idea to post some of the font files, either.

krog, you already have a wiki account (not sure if someone beat me to the punch or if it was made a while ago). if you don't have an email at your registered address begging you to set a password, then just do a password reset.

Now what I don't know for certain is whether that grey line is going to print. See, they say to leave that distance between the inner graphic zone, and the outer 'bleed' edge empty in order to achieve a white border. Which would make sense if you could choose the color of the mug, but the only choice appears to be white... so, I'm not sure if the gray border will print -- I'm going to remove it for the final artwork.

Here are some more:

22358-0
22360-1
22362-2

Ideas and observations are welcome. Also keep in mind that these are actual size -- the outermost oval is 2.91" x 4.58", and 'wraps' a bit around the mug.

EDIT: These are to scale, but larger than the actual size, LOL! (That's a monstrous cup.)

I really like the top row one with the keycaps backgroud. Could you make the background white, with "keyboard enthusiasts" in black?

All of those are really great, btw. Even the bottom one-liner would be epic in black on white background.

You've got an email! I'm hoping the art is vectorized, so that we could use it in other ways. Would you be interested in doing some design work for the community? I'm thinking about doing GB-themed mousepads. Each GB would have it's own mousepad, with corresponding colors. Would you be interested in helping me put together the artwork?

My primetime of contributing to this community came and went. What iMav has done here is great, but I'm only here to post photos and contribute to keyboard mods nowadays. I sent you the PSD, and converted the fonts to shapes, so that you can scale it for whatever printing needs you need. Good luck!

Graphics received! Thanks so much for this! Is there any chance you have the keycap graphics as well? The one that appears to the left and right of the text? If I could get those as vectorized art, that would be incredible. If not, no worries -- just figured it couldn't hurt to ask. Thanks again!

mkawa, any way we can get the Wiki to accept .EPS or .AI or .PDF files? I tried renaming them, but it detected the MIME-type anyway and rejected the vector art files. Let me know if you can help with getting that change.

the keycaps are raster graphics, though it's a fairly simplistic shape, I'm sure someone can just hand draw it out in shapes in AI or PS.

Yeah, that's the problem -- I'm not that gifted. I can manipulate the text and the shapes, but was never much of an artist. If you know anyone who would be willing to help me generate those shapes in AI, that would be great. For now I'm just searching around for them.

Nice! Thanks for posting that! Can you give me a photo of more of the detail of the logo, I want to see how much was picked up by the printing.

EDIT: Nevermind, zoomed in and it's there. Were you happy with the way it came out?

Excellent! I'm trying to find people who can make better graphic art than I can, to make some publicly-available materials. My next trick is (hopefully) making GB-themed mousepads. I think it would be awesome to have a Retro DSA themed mousepad, or a Klaxon mousepad, etc. But I need a real graphic designer to do it. I'm fine with text and such and I can recognize good/bad design when I see it, but I'm not a designer.

So if anyone knows a great graphic designer willing to help us out, please, please direct him or her to this thread!

Hello There GH!

Krogenar and I worked on the RetroDSA themed mousepad. What we need is some input from community on what to change to make it look better! Please post your opinions on the design :)



I also need to know the measurements of the mousepad so that dimensions will be correct.

Thanks,
Dan

I'm also in the process of doing high-res scans of SP's ABS chips. My hope of converting them all to Pantone equivalents was just too damn difficult (and incredibly subjective), so I've scanned them all in, and am now in the process of making each one into an individual TIF file. Each one is at 600dpi for the best possible resolution.

Here's one of the cropped out individual files:

From original post:

Quote from: Krogenar, Not a Secret Socialist
This is going to be useful to people who want to make new kinds of GH-themed stuff: shirts, mugs, mousepads, whatever. Even if the artwork is not in the proper layout, just being able to supply a manufacturer with vectorized artwork allows the manufacturer to make modifications. Supplying them with a low-res (or even a high-res) image that they cannot manipulate is a waste of time.

Hopefully, this thread will be a place for people to post new designs, or find new designs.

I'm sorry it wasn't as clear as I thought it was! Yes, GH members are welcome to use these logos to make GH-themed items but you must post a photo of that new item here in the thread. If you don't post a photo, the admins will send out iMav in a Batman suit to punish you for your insolence.

What did you plan on making with the logo?  :)

Maybe tomorrow or Monday you'll know. But I'll not make money with that.

On that DSA mousepad, the letters are not aligned correctly. The QWER row looks as though it belong to the number row.

Nope, that's not my work. It may have been based upon some of the art made available here, but I can't be certain of it. If you have access to Illustrator or Photoshop, you could probably duplicate it.

bro caps made this. if he could chime in with a high res version i could add it to the dropbox library (yes, there is one, access is not limited on purpose but because dropbox makes it difficult to share with large groups..)


to all the brilliant friends who have left us, and all the students who climb on their shoulders.

Here are some images that I've been developing for this travel coffee mug, for a GH member:

Here's the specs of the layout that I've been using, as provided by the manufacturer:

That looks great! What is it exactly? I'm glad you used the file, but keep in mind that I did not design the logo, I just helped get it into a vectorized art file.  :thumb:

I've been tinkering with how different materials react to a laser cutter I have access to. I have a bunch of random pieces of various materials sitting around and that just so happened to be something I etched. I use it as a big coaster.
