Hey there,

I am creating a few custom cover things for a few people - and I'd like it if you would share your logos with me - I've tried recreating them myself, but they aleays look crappy. The logos I'm referring to are the 6 pictured in this image:

If anyone else has similar logos like this, and is reading these, feel free to share them too. I am basically wanting the logos for the prequels in this style and the ANH logo in this style. Last time I checked these where the only ones I saw around here, but if you have some HQ logos like these, please share them. I'd very much appreciate it.

I have some that look nearly identical. Later on, I'll find them and send them to you, I don't have time at the moment. My AOTC logo, however, is based on the official one that is slanted, and my ANH one is stretched a bit to match better with the others; other than that, the TPM one looks so similar to mine that if it weren't for the "N" I'd say it was! And do you really want the Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back PT-style logo, too?

Has anyone got any prequel style trilogy logos of the OT films, similar to ESB above.

ChainsawAsh, thank you! Please let me know once you've sent them. If you've got a similar ESB logo, then by all means send it, but don't worry if you don't. The 3 prequel ones are the must-haves. And when you referred to the "N" in yours... do you mean yours have that "curvy" N? And the fact that your AOTC was based on the was-to-be official one, is even better.

Yes, all my logos that have an "N" have the curvy "N" like in the ROTJ logo. And I don't have the PT-style logos, but I can make them based on the official ones at much higher resolution if you like.

Oooh! Yes please! I'd love to get some hi-res logos for a change.

Klokwerk,

Those where all made by scratch using whatever I had around from the OT with the original logos on them as a reference, I can't even tell you what fonts I used unless I go experiment again in Photoshop, I have them all on PSD format somewhere, I'll try to find them.

They're still a little rough around the edges, since I was trying to match up the "S" in ROTS to the "J" in Jedi, but never found a good way to do it, and the "N" in the ROTJ logo wasn't changed in the others, because I didn't like the way it looked in some cases, so I left it alone.

Originally I was going to use the logos on the upper left on the back side of my custom DVD covers, and the "Episode" style on the bottom front just to blend OT style with the prequels, but have put the whole thing on hold.

I've tried many,many variations on all of these logos, and always tried to keep the consistant style to them all so they all match up, I don't know if you noticed, but in evey logo except ANH I made
the most important part of the title the largest while "the and "of the" are the smallest, ANH is obviously a little different looking because it's only three words long.

I'd love to see what some other people have come up with for all six logos.

I apologize, but for now that's all I have. I need to re-do AOTC, I can't find ANH, Empire or Jedi at the moment, and my ROTS one needs a quick fix. When I get a little time, hopefully tonight, I'll get the rest to you.

--EDIT--

All the PT-style logos are done. If these are too big, I'll make them links, but otherwise they're right here. They were done by going to the "Movies" section of the official site and taking those tiny-ass JPG's and blowing them up to this size, then using the fonts used by the original graphic artists to make a new logo. This way, they are as faithful to the original logos as possible. The only one that isn't is TPM, where the "Star Wars" on top was *much* smaller. I made that match the others. Other than that, these are the most faithful re-creations outside of matching colors I could do.

Thanks! I hope you can find the others too.

Just on the fonts - I believe it was Albertus MT and Trajan (was it?). There was a fan font that mixed the two. ANyway, I have one of the 2 fonts used, and am still trying to track down Albertus MT.

And finally, with the recreations - which SW font do you use? As in the one used for the famous "Star Wars" as seen before the crawls. I know there are many: Star Vader, New Hope, Star Jedi, etc. I use Star Jedi, is this what you use?

Yeah, I used Star Jedi, mixed with SF Distant Galaxy for the curved "N"s.

I'm still working on those other ones, I'll get them up when I have them done; they're all sitting around here, I just need to fix the bugs they have (I haven't worked on the covers I needed these for in *ages*).

Chainsaw, did you ever finish those other logos? I'm thinking of getting some custom posters made, and want to use the Struzan artwork and these logos, if you don't mind.

It seems to me that these logos and other parts ought to be on a web site of their own. Or maybe on a site like Grisan's excellent page. I'd love to contribute to that.

I just found my original logos, I thought they were in need of some improvement.

I'll start with AOTC, when I get an hour or two I'll work on another.
