I don't want you to do anything to it godammit! Its perfect the way it is!!! :)



Its way too late for that sort of thinking (Guitar Hero World Tour).

sh*t.. you even get a Bluray player.. I suck. :(
But I wanna do something to it. It's begging to have a shield and red sash and other stuff done to it. Like close ups and profiles.

Good thing about ps3 is it's region-free games. When the Aus dollar was up there, it was cheaper getting games from ebay....or many games release in the States that dont here, so you could buy them thru ebay. Online is also free.

In the end, really having both you cant go wrong.

Aaaaghugh.. okay I'll keep looking purely for interest sake. Its here somewhere.. I'll conduct a top to bottom search tomorrow.

Not anymore though..:(

I know.. I've just been through that fiasco too. xbox live sux sh*t. All I wanted to do was play divx through the 360 and that's where all my problems started.

I'd NEVER get it past the missus..

You're a champ.

Stuff like that is eeaaaaaaaaaasy to achieve. Just gotta push the right buttons, smoothie, charmer....or.....arms on hips in demand if that fails.


You do great work, tambu. That is awesome.

Cheers.
Now you've just got to rally the club to adopt it (and the art deco one for anzac day clash) !!
agreed. this one's much closer to the mark. nice work gg.

...and the idea of using the art deco one for the anzac day clash is brilliant. what a terrific way to distinguish the match itself and the importance of the day. i don't know much about planes, but the kind of plane used in the logo then will be very important.

what would the pies have though?

Thanks.
The anzac idea you can credit Essendon2008 for the suggestion.
It's a winner with the art deco badge.

As for Collingwood? I'm not sure. They would wear their traditional white strip and perhaps use an older badge they once wore back in the 40's-50's? Or maybe one could design a special anzac day badge (in the same art deco kinda feel) especially for that match?

That wouldnt be too hard if I had some google images of old magpies logos and images to play around with.

To post images...

Here's the address of the full image itself....

to make it appear you need to put

Any inspiration for a starting point? Eg Some images/icons you would like to see?
I dont wanna influence it. Im too close to Port that I'd only think of the usual things. I want the perspective of an outsider who'll think outside the box, come up with their own imagery. Feel free to go the traditional route or a different route.

So you guys feel free to experiment. I'll definitely post the best ones made on the Port board and see what they think. Should stir a lot of discussion.

Wow that is REALLY impressive and extremely professional looking Tambu...I'd love to see something like that adopted as a new logo.

There's been some awesome designs throughout the thread, gg-love your work mate...that Anzac Day badge design is really bloody good too :thumbsu:

I like our current logo but I wouldn't mind seeing a few changes. I don't particularly like the Essendon font as it is now and the plane could look a bit more sinister IMO.

That's only if you didn't know about the tags. If you do but they're still not showing, perhaps it's your browser settings. Like blocking images or whatever.[/quote]

okay, so here's my test run then gg.

mmmm... so after i tried to copy and paste the image itself, and it didn't come up, i altered the address the way i perceived that you meant..

i'm missing something here i think...

tambu yours looks quite nice, however IMO excessive use of gradient can look a little unprofessional. The only issue i have is the font and the overall darkness of the logo.

I am having huge computer issues at the moment, including no photoshop, scanner and my phone doesnt seem to want to transfer the image to the computer...

I have done just a little sketch of a logo. It is very simple, rough(due to the lack of technology and time) but i will post it up soon, and hopefully those of you who have photoshop or illustrator can clean it up a little bit :thumbsu:
