I think REV has been doing some experimenting with this stuff, maybe he could post up one he designs or you could pm him and inquire. Probably would want 3 or 4 designs to look at and vote on.

I might mess around and try to come up with something.

You still going to call yourselves the AZ XTERRA Club, if you're including Frontys and Titans?

Thoughts? I know we want to include more than just Xterras in the club, but we are still the Arizona XTERRA club.

EDIT: I think I'm going to smooth out some of the lines on the Xterra.

Take out the "arizona Xterra club" and put azxc. Also try to make the Xterra smaller but keep it as the centerpiece but also put a pic of the Titan and frontier? We need to include the website in the sticker also.

I'm in the process of mine right now and will upload it tonight

I like the direction, good idea, maybe an Xterra and a Frontier facing each other as the centerpiece?
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on December 27, 2012, 07:32:47 PM
What about pathfinders?
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on December 27, 2012, 07:41:57 PM
What about pathfinders?

Is a pathfinder built of the same frame?

Why does that matter? There are a lot of built older pathys and even Hardbodys out there that are built to wheel. Im just saying if its going to be all nissans, you cant forget about those. Maybe not include all in new logo, but included in the club.

I think an X and a frontier or titan facing each other would be a pretty good representation of nissan trucks.  I was rolling around the idea of changing the logo slightly every year, so next year pathy and titan.  That way we have more stickers to collect and put on our truck!

Thats a good idea, mix it up each year.

And if you have the original azxc sticker you're one of the OGs! 

Sunny you thinking of running for VP?

NOPE!
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on December 27, 2012, 08:09:13 PM
Since Sunny is running for VP he may be able to help us with this sticker deal next year. 

Maybe just do the X in the center this year, and then fronty next year?

I haven't done this stuff since high school and do not have any special program to do this either. This was done in Microsoft Word. It's just to get something out there. Of course it's gonna be touched up and more if this were the logo that we were gonna go with. Any help is appreciated. Different colors, stuff like that.

I thinking something with a truck/offroad related image on it might get more attention than just the state/flag logo.

Maybe somebody more creative than me could work up something using the Nissan burger? That would include all models, and as long as some reference to offroad is on there it should keep the rice burners at bay

I'm pretty sure there are some legal issues with using the Nissan logo. You would probably have to get permission from Nissan first.

Post by: Thefatmike on January 07, 2013, 08:11:16 PM
Are we sticking with AZ Xterra Club? Or should it be inclusive of all Nissan Trucks?
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Hammer (Avi) on January 07, 2013, 08:37:42 PM
I think for at least this year we will remain AZXC, the logo should can more inclusive to Nissan trucks but I think for now the name will remain AZXC.  This will be an issue of discussion for the upcoming meeting but I don't think we will be making a fast change, more of a brainstorming session of what can be done to make the club more inclusive. 
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 14, 2013, 09:59:56 AM
Maybe at the bottom of Vince's design instead of azxterraclub.com it could say

"A Nissan Offroad Club" or something similar, so people understand its a all Nissan's club and not just X's.

Maybe put azxterraclub.com in the middle under AZXC...

Just a few suggestions, I cant make the meeting.

EDIT: Although the current design could stay with maybe some minor tweaks or adding that were all nissans, etc... The current one is the original and face of AZXC from the start.

Whoa, looks like I made it back from Douglas just in time  ;D

Stupid town has no Internet available in the rural areas over there. But sure, I was working on a design I'm more than willing to hand over, or even make changes if requested. This is where I was at:

Thanks for thinking of me Sunny!  ;D
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 14, 2013, 02:09:17 PM
Rev's design looks good also.

Maybe just have AZXC across the top and on the bottom where the line is angled have "Nissan Offroad Club"
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 14, 2013, 02:20:10 PM
Thanks!

I can whip up a change like that pretty easily. I'll take a look at it when I get home and post that up ;D
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Jack5885 on January 14, 2013, 02:50:05 PM
Nice Logo, could use some cleaning up like mine though.
Main thing I notice is the X in the background has no hood.
Also, the "CLUB" seems to be just slapped on there, which I don't like all that much.

Great choice for the starting image.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 14, 2013, 03:10:19 PM
I really love the lineart to yours too! I hadn't been able to find a drawn Xterra before either. And I can't draw worth...

Yeah, that hood bugged me a lot too, I lost it to the reflection of the sun, though now that I'm thinking about it, I'm sure I could bring it back with some localized saturation effects prior to the cutout filter.

I was kind of fond of the stamped on "club" it reminded me of that effect you see on fast paced cartoons where the stamp is slammed on something really quick to deliver the punch. Doesn't carry the same effect in a still image though.

I had a concept before using the state flag cut out in the shape of the state. Would you maybe give me permission to color in your Xterra and try combining a few ideas to see how it comes out?
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 14, 2013, 04:05:38 PM
Of course!  ;D
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: GhostX on January 14, 2013, 04:12:02 PM
Keeping your web address on the sticker is vital IMO.

Helps if passerby or others on the trail if they want to look up the site and join AZXC.

Feel free to modify my design and/or take ideas from it.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 14, 2013, 08:23:33 PM
So for a simplified idea for a sticker and to incorporate a few ideas I came up with something like this:

(http://streetquest.net/photos/AZXCsticker.png)

And I know off the bat, the big problem is that only the Xterra is represented. The problem is going to be coming up with representations of the other vehicles to incorporate into a good logo. I'd want them to have the same kind of feel, so either they'd all have to be similar line arts, or all be live shots. I'm really not comfortable with just incorporating pictures of peoples trucks without their permission too.

As far as real pictures go, I have permission from coatimundi01 to use the pictures of his X. If anyone with a Frontier/Titan/Pathfinder/etc... is willing to let me use their action shots for something, I'd be more than happy to try whipping something together with them real quick.

Thanks!

Post by: sunny1881 on January 14, 2013, 08:52:23 PM
Rev maybe take out the Xterra altogether, the current design doesnt have it and we still get the point, then the X dilemma is eliminated.

Well hell has frozen over and I agree with Sunny!

WINNING!

Post by: Rev on January 14, 2013, 10:48:48 PM
Alright before we take out vehicles entirely - Idea!

I credit our friend Creepy over at GraveyardGraphics for this, based on his Mini-Xs. Something simple, effective, and all inclusive: Silhouettes

(http://streetquest.net/photos/azxcsticker3.png)

Going around the star counter clockwise we have from the top: Xterra, Frontier, Pathfinder, Armada, Titan
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker

I can clean them up and make them a bit bigger too, but heading to bed for the night. Will do more tomorrow ;D

Well done Rev, I think we may have a winner.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 15, 2013, 09:27:25 AM
Rev, I dont know where but can you put the word "Nissan" somewhere in there, maybe in the upper left corner or on the bottom of the burger, anyways just thought if it can be added and look good that would help sell that were a all Nissan club.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 15, 2013, 11:17:23 AM
Hmmm... my Sugarsync Magic Briefcase messed up and didn't upload my photoshop file to my work computer... bugger...

So tonight when I get home (Which will be late sorry, about 10PM) I've got a few changes I can put in. I'm going to increase the size the vehicles just slightly, maybe 20-40%, lighten them up a bit so they don't seem so dark to bring out a little more detail, and on the bottom, at the same angle as the azxterraclub.com, I can put something right above it maybe in a little bit smaller font like, "THE ALL NISSAN"?

At least that's what I'm visualizing right now. ;D
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 15, 2013, 12:06:05 PM
Save a draft of each one you have made and maybe at the meeting this weekend everybody can vote on which is liked the best.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 16, 2013, 12:01:19 AM
Alright so here's a bit of a change for today:

(http://streetquest.net/photos/azxcsticker4.png)

Trying to bring out some of the detail in the silhouettes as well as make sure the text is readable against the backgrounds. I figure on a sticker that's only going to be a few inches by a few inches clarity will become a bigger issue. What do you guys think?
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 16, 2013, 12:19:03 AM
Could make it share space with the AZXC?

Thanks! ;D

My roommate was watching me work on it last night, he looked over my shoulder and said, "You should animate it and make them drive around the emblem."

I yelled at him, "Why would you put an idea like that in my head?! I thought you were my friend!"

Rev, I know this may be a stretch and dont get me wrong the most recent design is great and I/we appreciate the work you have done and time spent, but any way the tires could be made into an offroad tire design, MT style or something?

Details, details, I know!
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 16, 2013, 10:09:45 PM
Dude, I am happy with it but the time is now to fix/tweak things, any and every design presented on this thread can be voted on, so vote for what you like best. I just figure if small details can make it that much better, why not, the time is now to do that, prior to the meeting/vote.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: paintsnow on January 16, 2013, 10:14:12 PM
Can you add some pin stripping to the trucks as well? Itll be more realistic.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 16, 2013, 10:15:21 PM
Dont be a smart ass Marcin. You have your opinions and I have mine, neither are right or wrong, but it seems to be your way or no way more often than not, which is not the idea of being a club and a majority vote.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 16, 2013, 10:18:52 PM
If you guys want to keep this going, then hell might as well add a rear tire carrier too.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 16, 2013, 10:27:16 PM
Dont be a smart ass Marcin. You have your opinions and I have mine, neither are right or wrong, but it seems to be your way or no way more often than not.

Not being a smart ass but also know how much work goes into putting a design like that together and know that the details may not all show up on a sticker.  That being said constantly asking for silly little changes and not appreciated or taking into consideration the time that went into a project is rude.  That is why I called you out.

So who is in for the pin striping mts ruts and spray from dirt?

What are you talking about? Did you read my post? I said how much I/we appreciate the design and time spent. You dont think a MT tire design would look nice, make it that much better and show in a sticker? Well I think your mistaken, you may think its a SILLY LITTLE CHANGE but I do not, again my opinion and yours are different. If he cannot do it or is worn out with changing then he can state that, its not a demand, its a question/suggestion/request, if he doesnt want too, then thats fine I have no problem with that.
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: sunny1881 on January 16, 2013, 10:56:46 PM
Anyways, this got out of hand quick, sorry gentlemen my bad, I just had a suggestion.

So back on track...
Title: Re: AZXC Logo/Sticker
Post by: Rev on January 16, 2013, 11:05:47 PM
I take no qualms over feedback in the comments box. That's what it's there for ;D

Also no guarantee is written or implied in regards to our commitment to expedite product release ;D Sometimes I have time and inspiration to kick stuff out, sometimes I don't.

Sometimes someone will lay out this big grand thing in front of me and I just can't seem to do anything with the idea. Other times someone will make a quick silly comment which then for some reason gives me the nudge to make something huge. Hard to tell when that will happen.

I also agree that details really do make a difference. In my sig for instance, the truck moving across the desert just didn't look right without kicking up some dirt. I couldn't find any dirt splatters that looked good and that I could animate out. So the animated dirt that I ended up using is actually the smoke from Sonic the Hedgehog's spin attack from a Sonic 2 sprite sheet that I just recolored brown ;D

Thanks for all the great feedback on my work so far, I'm glad you guys are liking the way it looks!
