The Living Geekhack Logo Thread
« on: Fri, 05 April 2013, 09:04:39 »
This thread is dedicated to recreating, archiving and designing GeekHack logos. My primary interest is in vectorized examples of the artwork.
Why? Because vectorized artwork can be scaled up pretty much indefinitely without a loss in image quality; useful for future-proofing artwork.

There are two kinds of artwork files: bitmap and vector. A bitmap is what it sounds like: a series of bits (pixels) are arrayed so that a picture is created. Unfortunately, when trying to make the image larger, the bits (which are square) are usually just scaled up as well, leading to an effect called 'bitmapping' -- the edge of the enlarged graphic now has blocky edges.

Vector artwork, by comparison, does not store individual pixels, but represents the graphics as a series of mathematical equations, which allows you to resize and manipulate them without a loss of quality.

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 usually a waste of time.

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

Any logos found here in the thread, are free to use by GH members in good standing, but we ask that you post a photo of your customized item. please, or you will be punished in some sinister way.  :D

The artwork files can be found in my signature file, and in the wiki.

I'm looking for the Nostalgia logo, with the tagline, in as high a resolution as, say, 300dpi, if possible? I will PM aggie.

I've got a new machine at work, figured it would need some testing, so I was hoping to make up a banner for GeekHack. Nothing huge, just a table drape, something to be used at meetups perhaps. Maybe we should have a design contest?

Here's the specs --

Dimensions would be 72"x72", with the GeekHack logo occupying the bottom 30"x72" zone of the square. Every table has a minimum clearance of 30" in height. They may be higher, but they're never lower, as the average human's knees would scrape against the bottom of the table. That leaves 42" inches of extra material to drape across the top of the table and the back side.

Or maybe I'll just do a 30"x72" and it can be attached to the edge of the table with table clips.

Anyway, someone put together a 30"x72" design at between 150 to 300 dpi (if it's got a lot of bitmaps). Vectorized artwork is best.

Or, just email the logo you've got and I'll put something together myself! It won't likely be done until next week, when I'm fine-tuning the machine. It's a dye-sublimation process that allows me to put photographic images directly to fabric. It's very similar to the dye-sublimation process used for keycaps, except it's used for fabric. It's the same principle, though - a special ink goes directly from a solid into a gas, skipping the liquid phase.

Ok, I've just thrown together some GH logos on different retro-ish typewriter fonts, tell me which ones you like:

17898-0

I kinda like the Cooper font (upper left -- it feels sort of retro). I think I found the font that aggie used to make the Nostalgia theme, so I can go with those straight letters, or I was thinking of finding a nice shot of a spherical key, and put them on those. The round keys (upper rightish area) are also cool, not sure if I love them though.

Anyway, feedback from admins and users would be very welcome. I put them all against an orange backdrop for now, but that could change.

Or, we just put the Hapster key in the middle and type 'geekhack' in Arial Narrow underneath, LOL!

Nice! I like them all, but really like the four on the top left and the one on the bottom right :)

Edit - Actually, the bottom right one is fine the way it is, but I'd prefer a capital H over a lower case h for the others.

I wasn't sure if people would want a Dodgers-themed logo. Maybe I can just put the one we settle on in the middle, and fade the others above and below?

Lowercase or uppercase? I think I like lowercase better, for almost all of the fonts.

Ok, here's what I was able to work up over the weekend, with great help from aggie:

First style, simple jet black background with the the Nostalgia logo (I took some liberties with the logo by making the text orange, I thought it needed some more color)

There's still some bitmapping on the keycaps when they're at full size, but they still would look good at a nice viewing image. Which layout do you think you guys would like better? Edits?

So whatever happened to the logos clickclack had? Did they get lost when gh went down or did they just not catch on? IIRC some were really cool! There were even keys based on some of them.

That's weird, I wasn't expecting you to respond with that at all. I thought you would dig them back up or say that they got canned. I guess these were really old, older than I remember. Maybe I can locate something in an old email or find the Flicker link that someone posted long ago.

Mkawa -- I will try to fade out the other keys; I think I should be able to do it. Smallfry, where did you get that image? Did you make it yourself? If so, outstanding -- what format do you have it in, I want it. I think that would be even better on a banner. If you did not make the image, who did?  I'm not actually a designer myself, just an amateur, really.

It's awesome and would probably look great ... if it were high-res. Anyone have any clue on who made it? Or for that matter, is there anyone in our community who is actually a graphic designer? If not, we'll go with what we have.

Sure, PM me with your email. What kind of format do you need? I can give you an EPS file, an Illustrator file (CS2, shut up, it's free) or a JPG. Give me an idea of the size you need (pixels or inches).

No, I meant it's actually free. Well, ok, no, it's not free. I just have such outdated software that their registration servers are down, and not going back up. So Adobe put up a page for people who have CS2, so they can still install their old software. But seeing as how just about anyone can download and install it, it's basically free.

Pirates should be keelhauled.  :D

Hey Krogenar, I really like that geekhack logo^. What kind of software did you use to generate it? I am trying to make a logo myself for a class but am not sure where to start. Anyways, any suggestions or ideas are welcome.

Thanks! I'm a complete amateur, I'm sure something better could be accomplished by a professional. I used CS2 Illustrator for the vector art (allows for upscaling without bitmapping, with the exception of any placed bitmaps) and then used CS2 Photoshop to make a lower-res bitmap for posting. I think Adobe is on CS6 at this time, so the software is very much outdated, but the basics are there. CS2 has entered the end-of-life cycle, which is detailed here:

I suggest you investigate that link and ponder the meaning carefully.

Now that is a very cool idea. More retro than retro.

This is also a good example of using the plastic velcro clips on the edge of a table properly. It could use an ironing, but otherwise it looks good!  :D

Make a quilt sown together in a typical keyboard layout?
