Yeah, I saw the hammer as a larger element. So here is a rearrangement. Also, I have more realistic shapes for a hammer and C-clamp. How does this look? Any suggestions for modifying?

Re: Logos & Designs [My Banner Graphic Idea]

Postby wammie » Wed Mar 25, 2009 1:08 am

Ladies and Gents,

I have been working on a banner graphic idea. Getting the image this far has taken quite a while, but I'd like your help to move it along.

I've placed some paint splotches and three washers on the wood background, but I want to add more objects. What more should we add here to convey "maker" activity?

Please make some suggestions and I'll see what I can do!

Ooh, I like.
If we don't use it, I bet Studio Bricolage / Leonardo's Basement will want it. ;)

I'm still evolving it. The tough part for me is superimposing objects and keeping the edges defragged. I want it to have photographic quality. Please everyone, if you have a suggestion let me know. Hey - perhaps I could put a spoon and cherry on it. Hahaha

Hmm, OK. Maybe throw a couple more tools in there, just peeking in from the edges. And you don't need to have the TCM stencil be transparent at all; if it were real paint, it would totally obscure the older paint splats underneath.

Thanks Theo, yeah, I thought that some transparency on the stencil would be realistic, but I was going back and forth on that. OK, I'll make the stencil solid.

The splatters could be on top of the "TCM" text as well, like the lovely sign got a little too close to the making. (Or the making got enthusiastic.)

Suggestions of other tools &c. to put in:

An Arduino (most electronic parts won't be big enough to see)
Wire, wire everywhere
Soldering iron
Welding torch (fire good!)
Toy robot
Pencil
Vacuum tube ('cuz they're cool)
The one leftover screw
A Band-Aid (a vital part of too many of my projects)

OK, here's another iteration of the design. Compression here has distorted it a bit.
[EDIT: A clearer image is now attached.]
