Who do you think gas the best team logo. I think ours Could be better, i think SPAM's is Good But not quite original i like the martians, Who do you think has the best?

07-13-2003, 11:44 AM
I like ours quite a bit!

I think 'da Bears 247 had a nice logo. Some of the members didn't think so anymore, but I liked it.

From their site: http://dabears247.com/images/dbcom.gif

I like our logo from this year, we kept the AO symbol (See the "o" Listen To in signature), but we also added the infamous "Fuzzy" as another logo (which was on the front of our shirts). See: This picture from Team 201 (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/pictures.php?s=&action=single&picid=5212&direction=DESC&sort=date&perrow=3&trows=4&quiet=verbose) to see what the Fuzzy looks like.

Here are some of the better logos.

6, 93, 103, 287 (781minus the text), 781, 783, 810 ;), and 955.

07-13-2003, 12:52 PM
Team 5 has like, 4 different logos (2-3 if you don't count color differences). On our shirts though, we had our robot (which doesn't count, but all well).

I personally like 6, 1114 (who wouldn't like a robot-logo? lol), and 384 the most.

Thanks for the compliment M. I believe a noteworthy logo is not only one that is visually pleasing, but one that is also consistent enough over time that it "brands" a team, making them instantly recognizable.

Those that come to mind first for me are 191, 93, and 45.
For a newer/reincarnated team, I really like Team 35's logo.

The picture and logo that we used this year can be seen here (http://groups.msn.com/lotusrobotics/shoebox.msnw?action=ShowPhoto&PhotoID=50). The little flame-flower and number were on the front-left chest, the LotusMan took up most of the back (with "Robotics 2003" underneath it, our artist was kind of rushed) along with our sponsors' logos, and it was all blue ink on a gray shirt. Someone at the Peachtree Regional liked it so much they asked us to turn around so he could get a good picture of it, but instead we just gave him one of our extras. Next year we'll probably use something very similar, but I'm working on cleaning up the pictures a bit (like giving the flower some radial symmetry and having the guy holding his thumb to his middle finger instead of his middle and ring) and we're going to try and have our driver look like more like the LotusMan (Open EEG controls! woohoo!)

As to my favourite, I like the SPAM one because it's fairly clean and has intense colors without being too bright.

Here's ours (http://team696.org/forum/viewthread.php?action=attachment&tid=7&pid=30) Please wait for it to load. It's not big but just a little slow since it's through the database.

Heres the 'wooshy blue' logo. (thanks to Aaron for the creative name) I Made this one for 263, along with many other variations. We put it on our crate (with green instead of white) and put this one on the back of our tshirts and such.

Team 201's logo isn't flashy... but I've always thought ours was a creative idea. It's in my avatar at the left (or at the top of www.feds201.com). Our school's mascot is the Falcons, so we decided to make the logo a "robotic" Falcon. We've used several forms of this as our logo, but they all feature the same basic falcon as the centerpiece.

07-14-2003, 02:54 AM
I think ours is tight

07-14-2003, 06:05 AM

i dont think this really is a "logo" but it was used on one of the pieces of team clothing on team 190 and its the closest thing to a logo i could find right now; i'm not saying its the best, and its not even "flashy" as some of these logos i see here

NEW Apple Corps Logo (no text) (http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/bc/firstae2004/vwp?.dir=/&.src=ph&.dnm=(Team+93)+NEW+Apple+Corps+logo.jpg&.view=t&.done=http%3a//f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/bc/firstae2004/lst%3f%26.dir=/%26.src=ph%26.view=t)

NEW Apple Corps Logo (with text) (http://f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/bc/firstae2004/vwp?.dir=/&.src=ph&.dnm=NAC+logo+with+text.jpg&.view=t&.done=http%3a//f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/bc/firstae2004/lst%3f%26.dir=/%26.src=ph%26.view=t)

Being from Appleton, Wisconsin, and being the NEW Apple Corps, our team has always had an apple somewhere in our logo. Two students on the team came up with this logo two or three years ago, replacing the "bad to the core" apple core logo (anyone remember that one?) This logo is, in my opinion, more professional, pretty cool looking and goes along with the newer motto ("Student conceived, student achieved!") well.

M^3 (930), CooneyQuest (269), Technokats (45), the FEDS (201) and MOE (365) always stick out in my mind for teams with ool/memorable logos. :)

I think that ours is pretty cool. We updated it a little bit for this year, and I like that one cuz it shows our bot
I also like Spam's logo, and even though technically it doesnt count as a logo, 302's little dragon things that you put on your head are really cute!!!!

I'll link ours as soon as I can, but I nominate 188 right now :)

We have a neat maple leaf one (188) and one of a frozen sperm cell (Blizzard). Or at least it looks that way.

Edit: Love HRT's logo too.

Nothing is as simplistic and rememberable as BUZZ... a simplistic smiley face with few transitions throughout the years. The bright yellow is always noticeable.... and the name is easily remembered.

07-14-2003, 03:40 PM
Umm You CD people should think our logo is the best! LOL

07-14-2003, 03:41 PM
i like ours personally, ill place a link to the complete image from this past year later, but a simpler version is used as my avatar. There are many awesome logos out there also but i cant remember any numbers now...

07-14-2003, 10:02 PM
unlike most teams, 312 does a knew logo every year (so far). this is due to the fact that our main school also hosts one of the top student run multimedia organizations in the nation ( CATCOM (http://catcom.cat.pinellas.k12.fl.us/) ) so some students are part of both of these (such as myself) and designing a new logo every year allows us to utilze our skills.
this years logo was designed by me:

07-14-2003, 10:57 PM
hrt's logo's hard to get at first sight, but it's simple and easily recognizable.

of course, i'm biased, cause i designed it :p

but still. :D ;)

don't get it? the first upside down 'L' thing is part of a lowercase 'h' (without the vertical line)

second one is an 'r'

and the third one is part of an uppercase 'T'

New Maxed Logo
Is this a contender?

Rich Kressly
07-17-2003, 11:44 AM

I'd work with just the eyes and the number 179
maybe one reed/tall blade of grass to the outside of each eye, no more
then your text below
that way you can use just the pic
or pic and team name
then you can place it on letterhead, website, on a bot, etc
you'll maintain consistency and still have flexibility in terms of size and use.

07-17-2003, 01:11 PM
[big annoucer voice]
and the winner is: 1089 (because you know you love our multiple 1089 logos) [/announcing]

the website logo (http://www23.brinkster.com/mercury1089/silverlogo.jpg), the purple monkey logo (http://www23.brinkster.com/mercury1089/monkey.gif), & the t-shirt logo
(i will add the link when i return from IRI)

brinkster is not nice and stuff...well, I had meaner words for it, but yeah...Anyway, to see the logos you have to copy & paste the url from the link into the address bar

HAY!, I announce the winner

07-17-2003, 09:34 PM
I would have to give the award to team 1020, the prank monkies. For some reason, that logo cracks me up. check it out in the top left corner of their website (http://www.team1020.org/index.php)

07-17-2003, 11:37 PM
I kind of like my teams logo (1108) even though it is kind of terminator-like. I don't think their is a best overall, it's just what goes with your team. They're all unique.

Our it at our website:
Look on the left.

Note: The picture is a gif so wait for it to load, but unless you have hi-speed don't bother to let the page load completely.

07-18-2003, 07:23 AM
Hmm...it seems that everyone likes their team's logo the best. Odd, no? :)

I'll throw ours into the running too. We call it the Steel Armadillo, but I don't think that anyone really knows what it is.

07-18-2003, 11:10 PM
By far ours is best!

It's neat!!!

07-18-2003, 11:14 PM

Wow I'm quite impressed with a lot of those logos.. I don't even know if we have one lol

eek.. just another job for the marketing department .. err who is the marketing department?

Team 341: Miss Daisy

07-21-2003, 11:39 PM
Sorry M.,

I like a lot of the logos, but don't have a fav. I just like to find out if my own logo is okay or if it is totally lame so I can improve upon it for the coming season.

I'll give a short rundown on my thoughts so far.

Tytus- really bright, but it doesn't tell me enough, like the idea and make for great flashy buttons.

Rlowerr_1- Couldn't get your logo but nice chimp.

Gadget - I agree. Da bears are nice, I didn't like it at first but now I do. Great Idea. Maybe could look a little more like a bear, looks like a clawed razorback to me.

pauluffel- I generally like it, the terminator guy with the yoga. Maybe relax the face a little, he looks like he's trying to hard, but it is really fairly nice. He would be really cool in color for shirts. Like DragonballZ shirts.

sanddrag- I like it. The whole metal man thing is nice.

Rob - Nicely done.

Jeff- It's kind of the same thing we did. The panther is our schools mascot so it works great in my town to be a panther, but a robotic panther. Like the falcon, simple mechanical. And it works for you.

Stefan- one of my favorites so far. its simple, colorful, fairly easy to understand but still makes you wonder, and it makes a nice overall logo. Easy to use. good job.

piotrm - your right. It's not fantastic but doesn't need to be, whatever works and is recognizable.

Ed- classic and recognizable. That's all I need to say.

Katie - Can you do that with a panther head because that would be great?

bethy - I just don't like it as a logo. Slogan or team name maybe, but not logo even if it is recognizable it can be improved upon. honestly.

brad- same with tigertron. improve the logo, keep the cool tigertron 222 lettering and you can seriously improve the complet e image as a team.

roger- I like heatwave, there is so much you can do with it and by your examples you guys, and gals, do. Keep up the good work. I changing logo with a single underlying feature like heatwave and flames can be great.

Tytus- definitely better. I don't like the Swamp Thing 179 sticking out like is does at the bottom and I agree with most of what rich says

bandgirl- I like silver. Sometimes I like more colors but then I rerember the restrictions we had in embroidering our logo, so whatever works. Nice though other than lacking color. or intense color at least.

cooldude- I agree. it is funny. work great for the website and with some change could work for other PR too.

Walrus- I would like a lighter grey but that's just preference. His facial features could be drastically improved also.

T967- I just don't like it. It like half a transformer with tripod legs. I probably just don't understand it though so whatever works for you.

missdaisygirl - daisy is funny, I like it, it tells me a lot, its well done graphically and has lots of marketability

Thats all. Mostly don't listen to me though. I may be utterly wrong. My mascot sucks too.

Thanks for taking the time to make comments about everyone's designs, though. I'm sure they'll appreciate them.

I too vote for 1020...It's actually clever if you think about it. Doesn't the monkey kind of look like Homer Simpson, who was the original "Prank Monkey"?

Well, we are normally biased towards our own team...

Here's my team's. (http://seadawgs.com/Pictures/2002/Shirts/denimback1.JPG)
Note: It's just a picture of the back of a team shirt.
Another note: We're quite aware that our team name references "dawgs" and that the school's mascot is a lion. We still don't care.

I'm going to have to agree with Amanda from 71... 1020 has a great logo. I love my 2 prank monkeys shirts and wear em all the time.

I also love the Rosy logo that 71 has...the little red robot. Simple and easily recognized.

i've seen the monkey from their logo somewhere outside of first, but i can't remember where. where is that monkey from?

07-26-2003, 05:02 PM
I'm not exactly up to par on most cartoons (except the simpsons of course), so I might be wrong here. The guy who developed our website for free (Matt at spinweb.com, thanks again) was on a mission for us - to make a cool logo. He found a monkey pic on the web and did some fancy work to make it "ours". I've been told that the image he used was Mojo-jo-jo or something like that. Ring any bells?

Anyway, I'll plug our own logo - because some of our team members didn't believe in the Prank Monkey and now it seems to have captured some hearts. As far as other teams' logos, I like so many of them that I can't pick a best logo. My thoughts on my former logo - Team Hammond's "rosie" - it's cool, simple, it says robot - I just wish it looked a little cooler to wear around non-FIRSTers :)

Mojo JoJo is a charecter from Powerpuff Girls if i'm not mistaken...
He's an evil monkey dude that is always causing the girls trouble...
He's supposed to be super smart and stuff..


07-27-2003, 12:02 AM
Looks like there's some similarity. I was told the the designer did some sort of tracing over the original and then beefed it up in photoshop. So maybe this is, maybe it isn't. Maybe I should just ask the source. :)

I like ours a lot, it looks a little different than the one on our shirts, but it gives the basic idea.
