Hey everyone, got another idea to run by you. I’m full of 'em this week. Thanks for being a great sounding board, by the way.
I think an XR-7 themed T shirt would be cool, and I like that it applies to multiple years. I’ve done the hard part of designing vector based versions of the logos, now I just need to decide on how to use them on a shirt. That’s where you come in! Here are some of the ideas I have. I’m pretty set on using a black shirt, and the printed graphics shown in grey would probably be a slightly metallic silver.
Version 1 - Small XR7 on left breast, big coat of arms on back
Version 2 - Opposite of above: small coat of arms on left breast, big XR7 on back
Version 3 - Simple design with XR7 on front only
Version 4 - Small XR7 on both sleeves (reminiscent of twin C-pillar badges) with small coat of arms on left breast
Version 5 - Big XR7 on front, big coat of arms on back
Got a better idea? Choose “other” and tell me what you think it should look like.
Personally I think I like #1 the best, but I hesitate because the big coat of arms might be a but “much” on a shirt. I have to say that I really like the simplicity of #3, but in some ways I hate to abandon the fancy crest thing. So I’m a little stuck. Opinions welcome, and thanks for looking / voting!
The XR-7 script works independently of the shirt color. Black is going to be too hot for the south west part of the US. The XR-7 on the sleeves is a good touch. I would work on the round logo to try to get to a design that works with any color shirt.
Also re: Bill’s comment about black shirts: I hear ya about the hotness factor. But to me, black was the only color that really made sense with these logos. It just works. Tell ya what though, maybe next I’ll do a red/maroon shirt with an XR7-G logo. Eh?
