    Hello all, my name is RC, from the HA down in Bloomington. I love the Studebaker influence in your design. I am a big car guy amongst all my other hobbies, but the ol studebaker champion has a special place in my thoughts as well as the hawks.. but I digress.

    Just a couple of thoughts G59, have you thought about using the Studebaker script through all the words? EpI was majorly inspired by art deco, as was the beautiful lines of the Studebakers, particularly in the 40's and 50's. So I think using a similar script for all the words would be very fitting.

    I love the integration of the Death Star. However, it may dominate your text from a distance. You could drop some of the panel detail and leave the laser dish. Just a though.

    Also have you considered a highly stylized and simplified Studebaker painted in a Star Wars scheme of some fashion? Now I know it may be a little adventurous, but for example, us a Hawk, but simplify it to the "essence" of the hawks (maybe something akin to the cover from ZZ Top's eliminator album) and paint it up like a naboo starfighter or Luke's Red 5 with the distinctive red markings? Sorry, just some idle thoughts. I do like the Studebaker theme though. What a great way to show your heritage and meld it with Star Wars!

    One thing I to keep in mind is most want logos distinguishable at a glance from a few feet away, so simply color combinations and signature design elements go a long way. I would like to say I live by the KISS moto, but I have trouble keeping things simple.

    Well I have rambled enough. I look forward to see these :)

    -RC

    I think I like that font better, esp. in terms of how all the text now fits within the Death Star boundaries. I'm not sure if I'm sold on the "TIEs" yet, but I have to give a big thumbs up on the concept, at least.

    I really like the idea of including swfans.com on the shirt, although that site seems to need a... little tweak (as garbagge59 noted in a previous thread). [face_laugh]

    atataboy sent me this "studebaker" font to try in there. I think it really fits with the large "s"

    G59,

    very cool to see the fun you at atatboy are putting into this:)

    and my post here is just another re-affirmation to all,

    that when the time comes,

    There will be T-Shirts (or other products) for the
    South Bend Fan Force Star Wars fanss

    Keep it going G59,

    SBFF
    Conquering the Galaxy,
    one ______ at a time.


    and yes, I am still scratching my head for ideas,
    and encouraging everyone to post here (help over take Detroit as well)
    and join in the fun.

    No idea too insane,

    like what...uh.....er.......

    Hey, how about Tie Fighters with Princes Leia buns,
    instead of ion panels, and then maybe we could.....

    ok, maybe some ideas are a little too wacky[face_laugh]

    Those are pretty cool! I think I like the middle one the best (color with white letters). I have a suggestion, building off this idea. How about a convertible

    [image=http://boehmhome.net/Above_Front_4.jpg]

    with caricatures of Obi-Wan, Luke, C-3PO, and R2

    [image=http://theswca.com/images-toys/figuretoys/landspeeder-catalog.jpg]

    sorry, I didn't have an image handy from the actual film, but you get the idea.

    Just throwing it out there. Makes the image more "Star Wars-y", but I don't know if that would be too much.

    not yet. my "free" time has been spoken for by others. i will still be trying to get the characters into the car, but it may not look so good because i'm no illustrator.

    ok, perhaps some T-shirt inspiration from

    www.redbubble.com


    just do a Star Wars search once there,

    to find stuff like

    ok, we should really like this as a design.

    I would suggest putting it on the front of the T-shirt,
    so that it could be in all photo-s

    also consder a white design on a black shirt, or one with a dark color,
    so that this great design stands out.

    SUGGESTIONS???????



    also, think of what could go on the back of the T-shirt......summer is comming eventually:)

    Wait...are we going to have to talk to each other? This is going to be just like that episode of The Guild, isn't it?

    This will be an interesting event, as nearly all of us have met in "real life" except for mercsailor. How will she recognize us? Perhaps:

    1) It will simply be obvious because we will be, by far, the coolest dudes in the room.
    2) MT will be dressed in full armor. Because...well...just because.
    3) ToneLoc and I will be loudly complimenting each other on our spiffy new ND and MSU shirts, respectively.
    4) We will decide to combine this meeting with a meeting of the Red Hat Society. Although I suspect X will come appropriately attired for either event, just in case.

    I have a plan[face_thinking] I think...........


    also, for those of us who are already writing/thinking up,
    pre-meeting, meeting, and post-meeting notes,

    Let us not forget the pre-meeting, meeting, and post-meeting......agenda,

    to which I would like to add.....the........T-SHIRT........project:)

    Wait.. there will be notes? Do I have to put together a report? Will we be following Robert's Rules? I totally didn't sign up for this.

    If there are two words that DO NOT belong on this board, they are "rules" and "order".

    Also linoleum, dazzling, and...pistachio. In other words, I am getting tired and should go to bed soon. [face_laugh]
