I like the way you mess with shapes and framing devices.
- Ah, yes, that's it. I really like that one. I guess you must have folders full of cool or interesting designs to take inspiration from?
I keep almost every logo I have made in psd format as sometimes I get personal requests for ship logos like the galileo, themis, cu chulainn, etc,....same with dedication plaques.
As for shapes and personal designs I do mess about with them like when I made a version of your avatar, but most of them are already created shapes (like your avatar) I find that I try tweak and incorporate into the trek style. I keep deltas, stars, swooshes etc to pick and choose but are all in the "trek style"
I've always liked the WorkBee logo, and your take on it is great! The Federation logo looks so different without the laurel wreaths on either side, but still good. Is it layered? I mean, the blue looks like the stars have been cut out then laid over a white background. If so, it's really effective.
The look of the UFP one was the effect I was going for.
The stars are actually on the top, but I embedded them using bevel and emboss to give the impression they were cut out, added some inner shadow for depth effect , which shows up better on the white so it looks like they were cut out of the blue.
As for the work bee, I cut out the bee, replaced the hammer, saw and drill, and tried spruce up the original bland colors.
Like so many logos, its not so much the pattern used bu the effects you use on them like drop shadows, embossing, satins, outer shading or glows etc..
Your logos keep getting better and better. I really like the Terran Resistance one, the MSS and the Montana Lions one just blows me away. Great work
Thanks Fireproof.....got a few more to add this week, but reworked 5 older ones I was never happy with, and made them more like their original ones in terms of color and style but while trying to upgrade them
Semper Exploro --- Logo's #2 (reworked)
Office of the Admiralty --- Logo's #2 (reworked)

That Semper Exploro one turned out very nice and clean.
71 updates this month :
40 brand new pics this month
24 reworked Logos
7 non trek Wallpapers.
12 additions today in Logos #2 & Logos #3
The Dekendi are not a race I am familiar with but I like the logo design.
Its my own creation of a logo that already existed for them. found the source material on the german version of memory alpha
- Didn't it! The highlights and shading on the yellow background work really well.
I know I mentioned it before gazomg, but your United Planets of 61 Cygni logo is so beautiful - one of my favourites. As is your reworked DS9 logo - I like the subtle ridged textures on the star, and the stone/marble effect of whatever those shapes are behind it.
I love seeing his work with those type of logos
I like the effects myself obviously but once you start reaching the volume of logos I have done ( heading towards almost 500) you try to vary things up and use other styles and effects, some work and some dont, depending on the original logos coloring and shape.
First Updates of December
Xyrillian --- Logo's #3
Farius Prime --- Logo's #3
Kes /Prytt --- Logo's #3
Kraylor --- Logo's #3
Hierarchy --- Logo's #3
Qomar --- Logo's #3
Mari --- Logo's #3
Qomar, Farius Prime, and Mari are standouts for me. I haven't seen these logos before - are they your own designs, or modified from the show/another source?
The Farius Prime logo is really beautiful (giving 61 Cygni a run for its money), and is that a narwhal/unicorn-seal in the Mari logo?
all 7 additions are genuine canon logos, just spruced up by me.
The 3 you mention Qomar, Farius and Mari appear in these shots
So, I recently stumbled upon concept badges for the Orville, and think some of them could be fun. I might try my hand at editing them with my limited skills in GIMP, but thought you might be interested as well.
Here is the album I created to showcase it all
I have done the 4 department logo patches already for orville, not sure what others are "official"
8 orville wallpapers I did here in the non trek section
Yours look great.
The last one on page 3 is very star wars like and love the #H on page 3
but my favorites are the very last 2 pics (#2b and #3 on page 4.)
While complimentary, those are the concept art pages. I haven't reworked them yet.
Yours are the official ones, while the ones I found are just from production concepts. I'm thinking of making them more metallic looking. I really love the security designs, especially the red sword.
The first security one is very uss excaliber , the third star wars.
Are they fan created or from some official orville production site ?
Agree they would look great in metallic, like a sort of gunpowder gray and enamel type black for command
and red for security, green medical etc in keeping with the original style.
