Title: CTPK Logo
Post by: Shyam Subramanian on September 28, 2010, 02:35:59 PM
Ok fellow CT homies!  So I was chilling in french class one day when I said to myself...hm...instead of doodling parkour pictures, let me be productive...HAHA no.  Let's just be semi-productive...Who am I kidding, I can't be fully productive.  So I decided to doodle up a small logo for Connecticut.  You know, something that would look good on a shirt or something.  So one French period later, I came up with...

...

...
...
ZzZ...huh? What?...Oh yeah.

I present you with...

Dun dah dah dahh!!!

Well...yeah.  You see, it says CTPK, but it's also a guy doing a flag hold!!!  Yeah, it's not too great...and I drew it in MSPaint...but I suck at drawing stuff online so that's what we get for the timebeing unless someone can actually make it look good.

Yeah, I know it's not great...so does anyone have any other ideas?  Or improvements?  Or just...feedback?  Love it, hate it, lemme know.  I want everyone's opinion when we're doing stuff like planning jams, making some media, stuff like this.  Makes it a lot more homely haha.  I think it'd be cool to have a little symbol :)

I also came up with the usual parkour silouhettes on the state, and just "CTPK" on a Connecticut silouhette...but I wanted something more original, y'know?  The only thing a bit original I came up with was like...you know how our state symbol is an oak tree?  And also we do a lot of nature training since CT is a crapload of trees?  Maybe something like a tree, but have the leaves spell out CTPK or something.

My opinion: something simple, easy to doodle (like the glyph, not something super complicated), cool looking, and...yeah.

Whaddaya think?

That's boss! Personally, I don't think yours can be beaten, but I will try to brainstorm images. Perfect idea!

Thanks!!  Yeah, try to brainstorm for more ideas.  :D

Cool design idea. I'll try and think of some other ideas. What did you plan on doing with the logo?

Thanks :).

Actually I haven't gotten that far yet.  This was more of just a fun inclass idea/doodle :).  But like I said, maybe put it on shirts to give out at jams or something?  I dunno, we have quite a ways to go for that haha.

Speaking of jams, when's the next one ;D

I like the idea of having a CT logo for shirts or whatever. Shay i messed around with your flag hold idea but wasnt having much luck, so i came up with something for a state silouhette design anyway. I thought it looked cool, here it is in a few different colors. Opinions/Ideas?

Also, a buddy of mine runs Upperline Design, they make custom shirts, posters, etc. So if we needed anything done at some point in the future i could arrange that.

Wow, those are really good man! And it'll be useful having your buddy too.  Anyways, your graphic skills are pretty great and I like the designs.   However, it'd be cool to instead of have a state silhouette, to have just a symbol, like I said, a simple design.  But definately those are good, maybe we could do different shirts too instead of just one design.

Anyway if everyone thinks differently we could do something your way, I'm by no means the boss of this place :)

Those are actually amazing!  I love them!

Oh and guys...please don't think I only like them because they're my design, if you have your own ideas I'd gladly pick them over mine if I liked them :). So everyone pitch in!

Oh!  And btw I like the last one too (the black) :)

Personally, I like Shay's, it's simplistic and creative. And Hardkor's editing on them are great. We should get this logo printed on shirts.

I like the last one.

The reason why I like Shay's design is that it is simple and to the point.

The reason why I like Shay's design is that he is really sexy.

That was a long cough jordan.  In the words of Professor McGonagall "Dolores Umbridge, are you sure you would not like a cough drop!!!"

(But seriously you are pretty sexy also ;D)

CTPK Tshirts?
Title: Re: CTPK Logo
Post by: Shyam Subramanian on April 12, 2011, 05:41:30 PM
We need to get in contact with a shirt company...do you know of any that would do it or should we take a traditional approach like Cafepress?
Title: Re: CTPK Logo
Post by: Gregory Milano on April 14, 2011, 09:26:04 PM
I don't know any... But cafepress works too... But we should settle on a logo/ see if we can do more with the logo...

I like Shay's logo because it is simple and creative. It shouldn't be too detailed, but it definitely should be memorable. I do suggest (if we use Shay's logo) then it should be touched up a bit.

I think Shay's is cool, but only the people on this forum will ever know what it means.  The other one (with the parkour dude and the state of CT) is far more direct and anyone looking at the shirt will get it. 

So the question is, do you want this to be obscure or obvious?

Hey guys, I haven't been on here for some time but i am back and It's good too see more discussion about this. As i said before I have friends who make t-shirts so i can get these done for a good price. Any questions/ideas on what should be done too the logos or whatever, throw them at me.

Ok suggestion!

Can we get a slim fit/athletic fit type shirt?  I hate the standard print-on shirt that never fits anyone.

This is a really good suggestion. We need to get Majestic Force - style (http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/223999_130565487018616_100001954954303_217758_7956462_n.jpg) shirts, shorter sleeves, wide neck, and overall awesomeness.
