KBE - Logo

KBE - Logo

Post  vyronwynter on Fri Oct 12, 2012 6:04 pm

Hi,

We need to design a logo for our event. We will use it on websites, handouts, banners and might even turn into a lapel pin. I am hoping for something distinctive. Something that will quickly be recognized as belonging to this event and not confused with anything else "LEGO".

It can be any shape, but ideally be modifiable into a square in order to make a pin. Please post ideas in this thread. We are looking to have our website and handouts ready for Black Friday. So we need some action on this matter fairly quickly.

Image ideas

Post  KmyRug on Fri Oct 19, 2012 1:31 pm

I am sure I can come up with some ideas I just need a better idea of what you are looking for.
Is this for a specific event? or all the Events we attend? In the same vein as my mini-build idea we could play on that with

LE
GO


or

overlap one image over the other so it reads "LEGO LOVE" with the iconic PA statue and correct Fonts

Hello Kirsten,

I thought this task might attract your attention. What we are looking for is a logo for our exhibition event in April 2013. It will be used on our website and in our advertising campaign in order to brand our show. To avoid legal problems, we must be careful to stay anyway from anything that could be misconstrued as being LEGO endorsed.

To give you some direction, consider what others are using for a logo:

http://www.brickfair.com/afol/

http://www.brickworld.us/

These two are quickly recognized by convention attendees. But they scream LEGO even to someone with the faintest awareness of toy bricks. All without incurring the wrath of LEGO corporate.

I like the simplicity of Brickset's logo. We could easily turn something like that into a lapel pin.

http://www.brickset.com/

Give it some thougfht and let us know what you come up with. We will be making up first round print materials in about 3 weeks. So we will need to make a decison soon.

Thanks,
Tony Sties

I will make a sketch but it will be up to someone else to make it digital - I am not computer savy.

I built a keystone, but the degree of the angle on inverted slopes makes it a bit off.

I will keep working on it. ... and ofcourse the colours can be different. I just built in black because I have a ton of black brick.

I made a sketch of possible printing for a Logo for KBE. I am sure the train guys will recognize the font. IF you like it, I will get it cleaned up. It is posted on my Flickr account, because I don't know how to post pix here on the forum. The pix are all restricted to my "friends and family" on Flickr, but Flicker is FREE, so you can sign up, and let me know you want me to friend you. http://www.flickr.com/photos/39026423@N08/8110283423/in/photostream

I knocked this out in 10 minutes. It should be cleaned up for use in print work. As you can see, it is based upon KC's idea of a modified Pennsylvania Railroad icon. Let me know your opinions.

I like it, maybe angled a little less, so you can read it easier.

If you have a particular image on Flickr that you want to share with people, even if it's marked as Private, you can create something called a "guest pass" for the image. It's just a special link to the image that allows anyone you share that link with to get to the image, and they don't even need a Flickr account. Creating a Guest Pass is really easy. When you're looking at the image, just click Share and then Add Guest Pass.

The Guest Pass applies to only that image, and you can "expire" it later if you decide that you don't want anyone to see the image any more.
