COE logo

Postby thorondor » Thu Mar 10, 2011 8:11 pm

i have just deleted the "COE Logo" thread accidently (wanted to move it to this subforum here, left a shadow thread in the old forum, and when deleting this one, everything was deleted). SORRY!
so i try to summarize what we have been talking there.

my proposal was to create a COE logo. something like the Eye in Flames with the letters "COE" (maybe in elvish runes?).
also, i can ask a friend of mine to draw an image we can use for prize stuff.

some ideas have been:
- hobbits in the shire with mounted nazgul over them
- gollum and bilbo not ridlling, but playing a vard game
- smaug and bilbo under the mountian enjoying a game of MECCG
- was thre something else???

the smaug image was favored be most.

we may think of small stuff like dice with the COE logo. also bigger stuff like tshirt and caps with the image (and the COE logo).
similar to what i have been starting for Lure last year.


did i forget any info???

Maybe the CoE logo should show an elf, a dwarf, a hobbit and a man (and dunadan) ... embracing each other :D ? Just a thought...

probably too much of an image already for a logo.
think of having the logo on the spot of a die, it wouldnt look good. the lure-die has only one face, and thats quite hard already.

I'm not in favour of a humorous logo.
Something Elvish seems more appropriate for the CoE. You wanna be taken seriously, don't feature a funny logo.

just for clarification:
there are 2 things we are talking about:
- a COE logo (this one will always stay the same and should identify everything connected with the COE)
- an image for stuff like tshirts, ... (there can be more later)

the logo should be as basic as possible. like the ldiless eye in flames. or like the gandalf rune. or a white tree, or a rohan horse.
if anybody got a good idea (especially in connection with the COE), let us know!

image: personally i like funny images. but there or enoguh scenarios in the books that could be taken for a cool iamge.
like the meeting of gandalf and the witchking. or saruman and gandalf. or bard versus smaug.
you see, i like the idea of having good against evil (thats what the game is about after all).
any more idea are very welcome!

I don't get it--isn't the image on the Council index page good enough for a logo? Of the beautiful mountains and sky, done by Ted Nasmith, I believe?

I also believe someone said that Nasmith agreed to give up copyright for his work, or at least he is now allowing people to freely redistribute his art, as long as his name is mentioned, and that's how we got that particular art (and his art for certain dream cards, etc). Is this correct?

Or is the Nasmith COE index art too BIG for our purposes, and we want something smaller?

I really think the best image is something that features Elrond with other elves, or the actual "council" of elrond, like the image here (although this image is badly rendered). We could have a "friend" try to duplicate this kind of image. But already the Nasmith image has gotten around. Numerous COE members have bought the "COE Member T-shirt" that I designed using the Nasmith image, and it looks really cool. I made it on zazzle, though it has since disappeared from that site.

I suppose Wolfgang means a logo that is more iconographic, recognizable in a split second. Something councilly is cool, like added pic., but hard to make into a logo.

btw. isn't that mountain/sky pic. by John Howe? seems his style and looks like from LotR boardgame. If you have printed this one on t-shirts, can you supply a picture of that? would like to see what it looks like.

Thank you.

I'm a University student, so I'll search out an artist that can create a digital image that will fit the player community needs.
