With a majority of 68% in Favour of changing the Elstree Base logo,
I’m pleased to open up the submission thread for designs!

The current Elstree Base logo is a simple
Design and recognisable it has been the logo of the base since the base’s inception.
The hope and desire is to create an equally as iconic design that will see us well into the future.

If you would like to submit your design, or design idea please post up.
No artistic design skills are required, we just need to get some idea of your design so a
Mock up is fine.

Depending upon the number of entries we may short list the designs and at that point look to produce a more finalised version for voting.

Things to consider, given the main reasons why we opened up the discussion thread in the first place please avoid the use of any and all regional flags also considering LFL and Disney have requested no union flags on logos ( although over turned) already twice this year if we can come up with a design that is
Being pragmatic if a region of the country votes for independence we will have to change our flag again so there is also a pragmatic reason behind this.

Lucasfilm who have the final say would prefer us no character mashups, so I’m afraid Porgs riding mopeds etc

Please be aware that the logo needs to be printed, embroidered and transposed on to numerous items so too much detail can be problematic for manufacturing.
Simplification can be done for some applications but ideally a logo that can be produced easily without too much fuss and extra work would be ideal.


Please also be aware that we may require tweaks and changes to any design after voting based on changes requested by the RL
Merch and PR officers.

Before being shortlisted for voting the base team will check to ensure that the design doesn’t infringe on any aspect of the RL charter.

If your design is chosen and approved by the RL it ceases to belong to you. Any and all
Copyrights on the design will be handed over to the Elstree Base and Rebel Legion, although credit will be given to you and a record of the logo design creation will be kept on the forums.

Finally please don’t ask about any types of merch in this thread once a new design is finalised merch will be produced but there is a number of other branding issues that need to be address first and foremost but new patches and coins and everything else will be available in the new year.


Currently there is no deadline for this but with Ep 9 and Xmas around the corner I would expect we’ll close for submissions in the new year

That’s brilliant, I will miss the old logo but change can be good :grin:

Here is my proposed logo, the ship is copy and pasted into the design so far but will be looking at getting it drawn to simplify it.

On the initial discussion thread, Alex suggested we have something similar to the RL Ireland base logo. I mocked something up as a blank slate
Image
What could be added instead of the emblem, and what colours we use, I have no idea.
Me personally I had an idea of having an X-Wing pilot over the island.
But you must accept your regret the way you accept your mistakes. Then move on.

Great designs so far! I voted to change the logo myself which might be a shock to some, but would like to thank Callum for at least keeping the simple aurebesh text of 'Choice' on his design.

Although the images and other detail may change, it's one small part of the logo that has been there since I created the original logo and set up the Base and as far as I know, I don't think anyone has had any opposition to that in the last 14 years.

Would be good to keep at least a bit of our base design history on it imho.

Whilst I wasn’t fully onboard with the change, I’ll throw my idea into the ring.

The Falcon is the flagship of the Alliance and iconic so for me, simply has to feature. It can be tweaked if the font causes an issue, and the Falcon detail simplified of need be.

As for the aurabesh, I’ll leave that for you guys to work out which shouldn’t take long; all I’ll say is it gives the design a nice subtle and relevant UK tie-in Image

Thank you for designs so far, it’s great to see a good variation of approaches with some really cool takes on a design.

One thing to point out is that from a internal perspective RLUK or Rebel Legion UK isn’t a thing so the text should either be Rebel Legion or Rebel Legion Elstree Base.

If you want to pop over the rebellegion forum all the base’s logos are presented there ( you don’t even need to log in)

I had a very similar thought. Also hastily sketched while I should have been paying attention in a meeting...

I'd be tempted to either add colours to the xwings and/or contrails to represent the red, white and blue of the union (I even tried to position them roughly to where one might find Wales, England and Scotland.

Anyway, thought I'd try and contribute, apologies for the basic "drawing"

I like the position and colour of the X-wings idea! What about squadron markings for the colours? (blue for the top/Scotland, red for the bottom/England, and green for the left/Wales?)

Yep that's the idea. Pretty subtle but and nice little acknowledgment and equal representation.

Yep, that's the idea. I did ask one of our designer to have a run at it but apparently they're "busy with work" or something...seems unlikely.

Being slightly biased i like the the starfighter
Idea either Stephens or Lees.

If there’s subtle ways to add some meaningful british colour that would be cool to explore.

I also like Bradley’s design idea with the Tantive and the paler blue shades rather going for heavily saturated colours. I’d be curious to see how that looks when simplified.

Keep me coming everyone!
