G'day.
I've been creating logos and shit for various reasons, some of them are just sigpic concepts, some of them were after Bert requested them... Ja.

Something I made for remembrance day.

Again, for this (http://www.virtualteen.org/forums/showthread.php?t=153978) thread. And yes, I realise, I put the old Telstra T logo in, and a seperate T, so now it says 'Operattor' :|

Bert requested that I recreate the United States Government, Department of Housing and Urban Development logo without text.

Bert also requested that I recreate the Executive Office logo, again without text.

They look really good Pat. Quite plain yet elegant at the same time.

I reckon they look very official, and... Bill-boardy? :P

But what bothers is there is no anti-aliasing in text and some elements of the text, which makes the logos really jarring.

I presume you are using gimp. Gimp has an awful anti-aliasing algorithm.

Actually, no, I'm not using GIMP :P
There is no anti-aliasing in the text (with the ones that do have text exc. the VStar logo) because I didn't utilise layers, and eh. Notice how there is decent anti-aliasing in the first four.

This only goes to Katakar and Swamp logos.

Dude, make me a logo. Ummm... I want it to be Art Deco with Russian Constructivist design. An eagle would be cool... or something.

Yeah, notice how they're the only two crests that have text :P

...Um, what? Skype me, biatch

Also, I played around with the Swamp crest... It's a little better...

The St Edward's crown needs a little touch-up, and I need to resize the wreath. Other than that it's fine-enough.

I'm not too fond of gimp but I'm going to give it a try and combine whatever I make with Pinta. :)

Pinta is the Linux version of Paint.net. some of the effects aren't as nice as the ones that Paint.net has :/
