    Edit: Cut-off date July 31 2018.

    Sorry for the double post, (I have it in the Other Toys/Hobbies forum) Just saw that OCAU has a designated topic for GD.

    Anyways...

    Who would like to have a crack at a t-shirt and hoodie design for BuildsByBaz? Text, logos, etc on BLACK material. Surprise me!

    Winning design gets this Blades By Baz skinning knife and their name plastered across the Builds By Baz heavens.

    I can only post the prize within Australia.

    Design Brief:

    I want to get away from the Arc reactor T-Shirt design and the Baz Industries borrowed from Stark Industries. I am doing lots of other builds and my own things now, Battlestar Galactica, Robocop, knife Making, (Blades By Baz) still running the observatory and lots more. (Have a look at my website link below to get a feel for it.

    I'd like a T-Shirt/Polo shirt and Hoodie design that has visual impact, is not too confusing, but at the same time wouldn't look out of place shopping or at the pub.

    It needs to have the BuildsByBaz dot com website on it somewhere. Perhaps across the back, around the T-shirt sleeve or down the length of the sleeve on the hoodie. I dunno. Hopefully you designers have some good ideas.

    Please ask any questions on this thread so I can answer and others can compete with apples for apples.

    Cheers!

    Baz.

    Hey mate, a few designs for you below.

    I have designed your logo to be able to stand out on its own away from the wording, so it can be used as a brand mark on all your different projects.

    Glad you like it, if you want any changes/revisions let me know.

    I’ve follwed your builds for quite a while now and would be honoured to a have a small impact on them.

    Love your work Baz mate
    I think it's great that you're going for your own style of logo. IMO logos are a key item in brand recognition, we all instantly recognise companies and even people with their own logos these days

    Following your builds for years and seeing your passion for sci-fi, technology and space. I went for something that kinda follows similar styles to sci-fi space ship and helmet design and almost looks hand crafted, like everything you make.
    And of course, it also flows into your other passion of knife making

    I hope you like them and hope you find a design that suits the great work you have been doing

    Cheers!

    Wow! Slick and stylish! Two stunning efforts already. If this is the standards on OCAU so far, I'm going to have a tough, (but fun) time picking a winner!

    Great effort guys.

    Not my speciality, but... logoCapture.JPG
    the circle is a strong symbol and shows you have rounded skills/do it all. Colours electric blue and copper are tech focused. took out the first s and replaced with z for the shirtCapture.JPG flow of the logo

    PunX0r with his absolutely amazing design!

    Thanks to everyone on and off OCAU who participated! Your designs were imaginative and some very clever thought was put into them.

    PunX0r, you've put lots of thought into it. I love the grunge design so much. It looks good on headers, watermarks on photos, great on clothing and the fact that you have also put thought into the blade stamp really sold me.

    Not so long ago, putting a fancy B on my blades would have not meant much to most people. Pick up a blade and, "Oh, what's the B mean?"

    Now however, the builds are very well known and my knives are also better known because of their association with the Iron Man build and now more recent work. Once this branding goes on everything, it will sit very nicely as a recognisable mark.

    Bloody good job mate. Thank you.
