Title: Help with the design of the offical WD sticker
Post by: KiLRoy on September 12, 2007, 11:53:12 am
People, plse be so kind as to help us design the official WD sticker.  This is not a democratic decision however, so we shall not be voting for any particular design - we shall use the input to come up with a design.

Design criteria:

1. Any shape - not to big not too small
2. Must piggy-back on the logo - we need to identify the one with the other
3. No specific bike on the sticker
4. Trick is to link the logo with d/s riding
5. Need the web address and 'Wild Dog Adventure Riding' on it
6. Keep it simple
7. Piggy back on the colours in the logo - top left

TIPS: Good previous suggestions were the triangular gravel-road ahead road sign and d/s knobby tracks - trick is to link it to the logo in a simple manner.

Plse feel free to post your designs for discussion in this thread.  As said before we shall not necessarily choose one design, but may use elements of different designs.

I shall sponsor a prize for the best design!!

Cheers
Hein

This is an invite for all the graphically talented to go ape.

Thanx Jabu - we can then fine tune these suggestions eg

Does that mean the paw with wild dog in the middle + Wild dog adventure riding must be included with this sticker - ie. something in addition to what you already have?

3. No specific bike on the sticker
No prob.

4. Trick is to link the logo with d/s riding
OK

5. Need the web address and 'Wild Dog Adventure Riding' on it
OK

6. Keep it simple
OK

We're currently playing around with ideas, but since we did some thinking allready and been around the block with the previous sticker - we decided to give some design tips and direction.

The logo can be used as is in the sticker, or elements of it can be used - what is important is that a clear link must exist between the 2 - also with d/s riding (which is not clear in the logo).

I like The_Wes' idea. But then we must keep the sticker round too. No use having a square sticker with something round inside. Capiche?

Round stickers fit in easier in any limited space (cos they're round, stupid!). Squares look funny in trapesoidal or assimetrical shapes (like tanks/radiator shrouds/ helmets).

Square stickers also come off easier -- have sharp courners that are more prone to peeling off or get snagged by an object rubbing over it.

Look, someone else, Goosepilot, methinks, has already made the very valid point with regards to simplicity.

So what about a simle white round sticker with the paw (which, really is our "logo") in the middle in black or dark brown? We could have the URL in SMALL lettering circling the edges of the sticker. Or not.

Keep It Simple, Stoopid

We want the logo (paw) and we want visibility. No clutter. Think Nike. Think Yamaha's tuning forks. Think Sanlam's hands. Old Mutual's anchors. Think simple.

Something like this mr Jacko?  Four basic colours used. No clutter. (http://www.freesmileys.org/emo/ad/yawn.gif). Also very plain and common. However, I do not agree with any sticker/logo that have the wording circling the sticker ... man was not designed to read in circles.  If you want it simple, keep the lettering normal!!

Maybe we saw it differently:

When we started 2 thing were NB (still is) - d/s biking and promoting SA, so we choose as a symbol the WD to symbolise what SA is about and what d/s riding is about (freedom, running in packs, exploring distant expanses, can't be contained, etc) - so hence the WD - a symbol, not a direct interpretation like a helmet, wheel, spoke, etc

On the logo can written (as on top) WD Adv Riding - which says it all, and in a way make the connection??

My 2c i like this sticker because it relates to biking, just a paw without anything bike might create confusion to the outsiders. The sticker will be advertising aswell, so it needs to get the message accross.

Post by: Jacko on September 13, 2007, 08:34:17 am
Guys we need less colours. Not more. If we start designing stickers with different colours, I for one, will not stick something "bont" on my bike. I have spent lots of money to make it look purdy and I am very choosy about anything extra (colourwise) I am prepared to add to it.

Go for someting in black/white. Even white on transparent as an option for those with dark bikes.

A good logo does not need to be self-explanatory. Let me give you an example. For those who have some military knowledge: the Special Forces Operator badge is the pinacle of simplicity - just a commando dagger circled with a laurel wreath.

According so some logic I have noted here, the Special Forcers Operator badge should have included a parachute, some cammos, a dagger, a garrote, an RPG7, a closed circuit breathing apparatus, a bottle of Red Heart and a cigar (for after a successful ops).  :P

Logos or badges come to signify something. Another good example: The Swastika. It's origin is actually Sanskrit, meaning "well being". The Germans then hijacked it, but it has become a very powerfull symbol of many bad things. Look at a blooming swastika - it is meaningless in itself! Like many very successful logos. But one look at it and... bam! you know what it stands for.

The paw IS the logo. Let's not dilute it as part of some technicolour beginner's excercise in whatever software we've got. I am going to speak to one of my generous designers and make the necessary corrections. Once again, sorry for the mistake in the first one Kilroy! Mea culpa ;D

PS apologies for those who are easily offended, blah-blah-blah. I am sincere in my opinion and I hope you all appreciate it for that.

Why not just keep the symbol as is(top left on page). Trailrider posted some pics of a home made sticker of just the logo & it looks good. I understand we need to make a connection to adventure riding, but that's what we're here for, to premote it to others & people will quickly pick up from there. Like the "ADV" sticker, it's own members premoted the "sysmbol" & what it stands for.

Don't loose the original logo as it currently is.

I also like this. Maybe the paw could be big with the writing over it.

My first choice is still Eisbein's creation. You could even have your forum name printed underneath if you wanted. You'd have to have such a sticker printed yourself though.

i'd stick this on my bike, i like the natural earthy colours

I also like the LGF one (the main font can maybe be changed).

My two cents: You want a reference to adventure riding ?

How about the bike it is stuck onto ?

I mean if I have a sticker on a bike that has the paw and says: Wild dog adventure riding, I'm pretty sure someone wouldn't think that Wild Dogs is a skydiving group...

Thanks !

Just want to add two comments:

1 - The paw (seeing that it is also kind of the emblem you see on road signs depicting 'wilderness areas') already has an 'offroad' and nature connotation to it, so it should be apparent that it stand for something 'off the beaten track'.

2 - The Wild Dog 'brand' does belong to Hein (Kilroy) and as such he can ultimately decide what he wants to do with it, so this needn't be a democracy about it. I will not be offended if he goes a complete  other direction with it. (But then I'll also keep my own printed stickers on the bike instead of the new ones).

I like the simplicity of LGF's designs.
It would be cool (as Jacko mentioned) if it could be in two versions - one with colour and one black&white...

Ok - so that was more than two things...

 

btw - Wes - I also feel the design is 'lekker' but the font could be a little more 'normal'.

This design is not bad, but.....

It sure gives the feeling of some commercial travelling company ( overland trucks comes to mind ).
Something else to remember is that colours do fade.... some more than others.
That is what is so nice about the design of Jacko..........it is simple and would look fresh for a looong time.

Okay, this is what Owen Willoughby Esq. did. For Jabu: Ignore the background colour. Just to make sure you're not confused any further, I've changed it to grey. SS Grey  ;D

The black and white one of Jacko is cool (apart from the address still being 'The wrong way round'...

Having said that, if I had the option of having place on my bike for a rectangular sticker (like the topbox) , this would be it:

The paw would be reflective...

Agree on the rectangular one. only I will prefer not have the 'shadow' paws in the background.  IMO it makes the
sticker cluttered and more difficult to read at a 1st glance.  The black and white one ... sorry, I just do not like to twist my head when reading something, horizontal lettering please!

Like I said, I'm no designer, but then do it something like:

Ama - if I search "wild dog rider" I still don't have a link to this forum on page 3 of Google's results.

If I search "wilddog rider" I get a link on Wikipedia (but that points to the old forum address):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawasaki_KLR650
Apart from that I also have nothing for the 1st 3 pages.


When I type in "wilddog adventure rider" as the search I get hits on page one...

I think it is necessary to have the url in.

First of all - many thanxes for the input. 

seems like:

1. We use the paw without the dog
2. Keep it simple
3. ITO - fonts - can we try to use the existing fonts
4. The www address is crucial to the brand - like www.klr650.net
5. Two minds about colours - either b&W (jacko) or simple 'logo' earthy colours - 2 colours max?
6. Round seems popular
7. We shall make it with a transparent AND either white or 'logo earthy' colour
8. Maybe in 2 sizes - one about license disk size???  Other eating plate size?

Could we narrow the designs down to these criteria - else we shall run in circles ad infinito

Again thanx - its nice when things become so logical and clear with you guy's inputs.

Although the brand may belong to us as the site owners - its more important that people like and can associate with it.  I do however fear that we can't satisfy everyone with this kind of thing.

Kilroy, I 100% agree with all your points, except the size.

I found (when I printed those for my own use) that license disk size was too big to properly fit it on the fairing in front, so I sized it down a little.

Maybe it is just me, but I won't know (or want to know) what to do with an eating plate sized sticker...

I agree that maybe just use the existing logo.... "if it works... don't fix it"

A suggestion for the designers in the family....  Keep the PAW as a dark print... but run a set of tracks in the negative colour through the PAW ???

Maybe...

Me no artist, but here's my take on it.  As for the material, my opinion is rather use a darkish solid background colour, transparent and light shows scratches (and the dirt that sticks to the glue).  The shape doesn't bother me to much other than I'd prefer rounded corners because sharp corners start curling sooner or later and then the sticker starts peeling.

Thinking currently to have them available as a set - one with a transparent background (uitjie then it wouldn't look round, one white, one our fawnish logo colour?

Now for the round sticker design - current paw and fonts plse

BTW the text on the existing logo is fawn and white - must be the same as the 2 sets of background colours - will contrast nicely comprehento?

Keep the original. We all know it, lets promote it, besides if it's just the paw we can have it done in reflective.

IMO, why have a symbol on the webpage, buffs, shirts etc & another thing on our bikes that the puplic sees???

Title: Re: Help with the design of the offical WD sticker
Post by: the_wes on September 13, 2007, 12:36:05 pm
looking at what most have said, here's my suggestion...

1. it uses the original logo
2. it drops the dog, making it cheaper to print PLUS easier to recognise (lots of detail on a small sticker, not good)
3. it keeps the wording on the paw, but bigger now without the dog, and emphasising the WILD DOG part so easily recognisable from a distance. what's also nice is by leaving the text on the paw, you utilise the paw better, as opposed to it being "dead space".
4. the URL is underneath (i don't have that font so i cut and paste to make something up), so not hard to read text in a circle pattern, plus bigger and bolder - again, easy to spot from a distance
5. uses few colours, keeps some detail from the original which you will see up close, but doesn't ruin the design froma distance. can easily be reduced to 3, 2 or even 1 colour.

my 2c, i think it's cool... i also think the current sticker size is perfect

Mike certainly knows what he's doing. the 1st is my favourite because the paw is bigger. I still think the paw is the main thing people would look out for when trying to spot a fellow Wild Dog.

Eisbein's sticker works on his bike...

How much cheaper is cheaper? R10? R20? We ride bikes and wear gear worth thousands. I don't think people would mind 10 or R20 this way or that?

Btw - I looked at one of LGF's designs and had an idea.

The problem that I have with putting a sticker on the front of my windscreen is that (to me) it looks stupid (have a round white sticker slap bam in the middle of a tinted screen).

So here's what I would do.

(Quick jobbie in Irfanview, so don't expect too much).

Seeing that I have a dark tint screen - take one of LGF's designs, invert it, print it on see through sticker and stick it on the front screen...

Any of the design could be printed on clear vinyl. Also, they could be done in cut vinyl and be put on with a backing sheet so that just the lettering and logo appear on the bike. There's a difference between printing the sticker and having the individual elements done in cut vinyl.

Hope this adds to the confusion ;D

Had to find out a couple of things before I got this going, so you photoshop gurus out there, please be gentle:

It might also be a little too big still ...


Van 'n afstand af lyk dit asof jy een moerse groot brommer geskraap het.  'n Kleiner een sal definitief bakgat wees.

So lief is ek darem ook nie vir die forum nie!

Ek is met jou daar.

Ek het net nie 'n naby foto gehad nie en as ek dit kleiner maak lyk dit net soos 'n vaal blob.

Ek het gedink as dit so groot soos 'n gewone lisensie disk is mag dit dalk goed lyk.

Bietjie oorboord gegaan en wou wys - toe werk dit nie so lekker nie.

Maar jy's reg - dit is soos dit daar gewys is bietjie te veel...

See Guys here is the problem with the unofficial ones (and BTW Mike it does look good):

Firtsly we're trying to build the brand - so stuff like colour and fonts must be exactly right - thats a different font you used.  Secondly its Adventure Riding not Riders (the mods decided to stay away from the riders aka club name and stick to riding)

Plse help us get this right

Note to self:  Include a round and rectangular shape with transparent and white backgrounds as well as a transparent one for the screens (i'll rather go for 5 designs to plse more people than people making their own (with good intentions) but screwing around with fonts and wording.

Hope this makes sense

Kilroy - what you say makes sense.

It does make sense to have a couple of designs (and an official 'light' version as well) to have more application options.

I hear your comment re the 'rogue' designs as well.
Absolutely fine by me.
 Your logo, your brand.
I will replace mine with the official ones when they come out.
:thumbsup:

Just to be fair I think you should try and find the name of the official font and post it.
You can't expect designers to conform to the official font specs and have them not know what the font is ...

Hein, wat noem 'n mens dit wanneer die sticker daai wit backing het?  Jy plak hom op, en trek dan die backing af, dan sit net die paw, en die toontjies met naeltjies apart?  Daais nice!

Kyk hier op die forum het 'n ou sy hele nuwe KLR so beplak.

IT WAS ME!!!  ;D  ;D
Uil, was bloody hard work. each peace was cut out by hand and stuck on the tank. Was cut from normal Reflective tape that is used on trucks. " lyk mooi van ver af, maar ver van mooi af"  :-[

And yes it is a bit much. I'm gona remove the 4 paws on the top of the tank. Just keep the sides.

OK LGF - lets try to narrow it down?

1. Round one - disk size - official paw - Wild Dog Adventure Riding just as on the top logo - same place same font same colours.  web address underneath - again same font and paw colour - transparent background
2. Same as the above with white backing
3. Your Rectangular design with Wild Dog Adventure written on top (same font and colour) with the stretched Riding underneath (same font and white colour) - thin line underneath with the web address underneath - as big as the length of the above will allow - again in transparent (i know the size of WD Adv will be smaller to allow for the longer line)
4. Screen model - Paw on top, with WD Adv again written underneath with the stretched Riding under that (font and colours the same) - web address under that - again transparent

Shit I know I'm a kak spec writer, but hope you understand

LGF - can you organise for design and printing? we'll pay off course  ;D

can we do it with the overlay of the transparent even on the white - as showed previously?

Title: Re: Help with the design of the offical WD sticker

Ama - if I search "wild dog rider" I still don't have a link to this forum on page 3 of Google's results.

If I search "wilddog rider" I get a link on Wikipedia (but that points to the old forum address):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kawasaki_KLR650
Apart from that I also have nothing for the 1st 3 pages.


When I type in "wilddog adventure rider" as the search I get hits on page one...

I think it is necessary to have the url in.



Btw. the URL to "Wild Dog Adventure Riders forum" on wikidepia still pointed to the old site, but I fixed it.

Thats because in the default page for the forum (index.php) the sites description is given in the head section as
Wild Dog Adventure Riders.  Web browsers use this to identify/show the title of a site.

Here is the relevant line of source code in the php file:

<meta name="description" content="Wild Dog Adventure Riders - Index" />

Yes it was a error when we created this site (and thanx for spotting it) - we did rectify it at the top however.  Its RIDING not riders - because of the club connectation with riders - we're allergic to any form of club connectation.... ;D

Uiltjie - julle ouens druk nie net die mes in nie ne - julle draai hom ook....? ;D

Sorry to sound full of shit - but we do take the branding stuff seriously AND i can recall what happened last time we designed a sticker - mayham ;D

LGF and me are finalising it

Either:

The 4 mentioned stickers with the current font OR
New font on stickers as well as the logo (update logo)

Either way the fonts will be the same - sticker and logo

4 Options:
1. Round on transparent - same as logo without the dog and sunrise
2. Round on white (darker bikes)         "
3. LGF's design in transparent rectangular
4.   "           "                "          - for fairing

Aim to have all 4 available - lots of choices man..... ;D

What catches me with the above design, is that the paw and the Wild Dog are associated with each other. It is clear, and stands out. The "adventure riding" also stands out, and is also clear, and complements the logo nicely, but does not destract from it, rather, it complements it. It all works together very well. Nothing overpowers. Harmony. I like it! :thumleft: Well done that man on the design! :thumleft:

Hein has asked for some feedback on the sizes.
no. 4 is for the side of the bike and measures 100x35mm - in case you don't like the round one.
no. 5 is for the windscreen and measures 70x60mm

What do you think?

All stickers shall be centrally distributed by the mods/post - we envisage a small mark-up.  As said before, we shall never ask membership fees for this forum, but the continuing rising running cost per month (due to record increases in bandwidth - ask Funacide) will force us to come up with creative ways of funding the forum.  So if you pay more for your sticker than its printing cost - rest assure you are funding this forum.

No logo/sticker files to be ditributed without us knowing - no bootleggers plse...

Thanx GS - but no we don't wanna go that route.  We'll rather like to sell quality branded items (which riders can use like shirts, buffs, stickers, etc) with a small mark-up than ask for donations. 

But thanx for the offer - you can donate it in the form of beers to the mods  ;D
