Logos for Organizations in the STK Universe

Logos for Organizations in the STK Universe

Postby MTres19 » 10 Jun 2016, 23:55

Hello. I was looking through the wiki pages about the theme of STK, then I looked through media repository and realized that there don't seem to be any logos for the fictional companies! :shock:

So I decided to try my hand at making some logos for the fictional companies. I started with Wegacom, the electronics manufacturer, which was easy because it's a tech-y kinda logo and doesn't need curved lines. I've attached the SVG I made in Inkscape. Any comments are welcome.

I would have liked to use the CC-SA license, but it's deprecated, so I'll go with the CC-BY-SA 4.0.

I'll post more as I go.

Regards,
-

Well you're posting assets so you're probably in the right place

Okay, here's what I made for the Transcontinental Post. Text only showed up in Inkscape (not in Chrome or Firefox), so I'm attaching a PNG and an SVG.

CC-BY-SA 4.0, of course. (The Licensing page on the wiki only mentions 3.0, but according to https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/creative-commons-by-sa-4-0-declared-one-way-compatible-with-gnu-gpl-version-3, 4.0 should be fine, right?)

Of course, these are only ideas, they wouldn't look good in an actual track without being somewhat enhanced. It just seemed like a good idea for corporations to have the same logo across tracks. (By the way, Las Dunas Stadium has a nice logo for Sunshine Cola, too.)

I like the Wegacom logo, it looks very fitting. Maybe you could reduce to number of lines on the "W" to three? I'm not sure if that would look better or worse

Just a heads up, many of the organisations do already have logos, which can be found on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=6201
If you haven't already, you could have a look through to make sure you don't make logos for organisations that already have one.

I think maybe the assets section is for 3D models, but a mod can probably move the thread if it's in the wrong place

Thank you. It originally had only three lines while I was making it, but it seemed like it looked too much like a "V" that way.

Ah, okay. I didn't realize that. I definitely like the TCP logo there better than mine. I do like my Wegacom logo a bit more, though. I'll have to make it into something that can be used for a texture first though. They do seem to have almost every logo, actually, so perhaps there wasn't much use in opening this thread after all...

Not exactly. Those logos made by myself are not official logos yet. The developers never said if most were approved or not as official logos. Mainly, Nolok, Jerico logo and Sara's Space Agency patch. Acording the official post of samuncle (http://forum.freegamedev.net/viewtopic.php?f=90&t=6017), a green banner is placed under his approval when this happens.

Anyway, there are other fictional companies with no official logo. For example, Big Farmer. Except Valverde, AFAIK, all the other countries have not a official flag yet. Those mines (Tuxel, Nolok Industries, Dizzy World and Jerico Park) were not said approved as official logos and many other types of services and comerces (which are necessary in a world, even if it is fictional) simply don't exist, but contributors like me, you and maybe other artists who already gave some contribution (Totoplus62, Anon, etc.) would like to make logos, packages, advertsing and outdoors for them. So, a member of the team of developers could create one or two names for official establishments and brands of products listed bellow:

Bank (one or two financial groups)
Snacks restaurant Chaim (one or two store chaims of fastfood)
Supermarket
University
Book store
Magazines and Newspapers
Fashion wear
Sneakers
Perfume
Watches and Jewellery
Chocolates
Toys
Bakery
Other like Barber shop, beauty salon, fitness equipment and academy

I myself have some ideas of logos and visual identity for many different establishments. They just need to say which kind of companies they have interest to include in the fictional universe of STK. If they have other people collaborating, they can chose the best logo or visual project for every company, big or small and then, the STK world will be complete full of brands and establishments. Or maybe not. Depends on their purpose for the environment of the future tracks, if most will be urban, remote or a mix of both. Anyway, I think that there's a lot of work for all those who wish start contributing with the project. ;)

Well, I think technically, you're supposed to post finished assets in the Assets forum if you want them in the media repository, which is why I should have posted in Contributions. Maybe a moderator could move this thread...

True. I might try to do something for Big Farmer Co. or maybe some of those countries—I'm sure that more of your logos could be included for some of the other companies, with not too much effort. I think I might work on flags—they'd be simpler, since I'm really not much of an artist.

So here's the flag of Malampoor. I took inspiration from the flags of China, Vietnam, and Laos.

I made variants with white and gold accents. Comments are welcome, of course.

Hi :) I'm the lead artist of supertuxkart

Thanks for your contribution

I already made several logos for companies depending on what I needed for my tracks. Sadly they aren't in the wiki yet and it's my fault.

I should clarify what's already done and not to avoid useless work.

Updated versions, better for textures. Not sure whether rotated or "normal" one is better.

Rotated if it's a benevolent organization (this version of the pentagram traditionally signifies protection from evil), normal if it's evil (this is the pentagram turned upside down and interpreted as the sign of the devil).

Interesting; I did not know that an upside-down Star was a symbol at all. :shock: Yes, it's a benevolent organization, so it should have the point on top then.

Well, not a star as such, but it does evoke the semantics of a pentagram. Certain associations can be made by the human brain ;)

I like the malampore logo. Thanks for your contribution. We should included it when we will have a track in this city or in the region. Maybe someone could create one!
