I still prefer the two-tone black and white one. That zed looks mean as. What pic is it based from? I'm tihking of having a play with some stencil arts shortly, going to use that zed as my first one. :)

What can I say, I'm old school and like the car as she was originally released. Sulio, if you can post the original graphic of that two tone z that you used, I'll incorporate it into my design and post for comments.

Cheers,

Matt

Im with Dave on this one. I like the black & white model at the moment. Maybe introduce some colour to make it a bit more standout, but in my opinion its the best yet. Good work all you blokes. :D :D

Matt,
Your right that not many people would know what the S30 might mean so I prefer the last one however we do have S130 members so it makes sense to use those body series numbers!? I don't know, I suppose we should wait until we have more designs and then post o voting thread???

Anyways I'll attach the pic I used in the first one.

Another one to add to the mix. This is the long version of my square ones.

Sorry about persisting with the same car, I just couldn't get the other car to look good. The photo-style image vs the simple lines of the text just wasn't sitting right with me. Will have to keep trying ;)

After creating this image, I noticed that on an all white background, the image doesn't quite look right. It probably needs a border or something.

Another idea that I had (but haven't tried) is to make the background solid blue and having the car and text filled in white.

Well, my 240 doesn't have side indicators, but might the 260? Cannot remember. The image is just one that I found to play with, if you can find a better picture, post it and i'll play adounr with it. I did find though, that photo styled images didn't look that good. Line art ones seem to match the text a lot better (in my opinon anyways ;) )

but i know its like a month late but the side indicators at the rear i believe didn't come on Zeds, and i had a 76 and it didn't have rear side indicators as US versions did.... jap, aus, UK versions never had rear indicators as far as im aware....

problem with using a bitmap image is that if we need to inrease it's size for a logo on a T-shirt or mugs or any promotional material it will distort.

The original that Sulio posted I think I could easily convert to a vector based format in Illustrator.

I might have another try at it soon. :D

Gav/ Sulio

I used to work as a sales rep for a printing company a few years back. I can pull a few favours from the guys, so call me before you go to print!!

The designs look great...... My only concern (and i have spoken to Gav about this) is stipple. You cannot reproduce stipple or shading effect when screen printing as the "dot" size is too big. A lot of these "magazine" type pics look great on the screen but turn out terrible when screen printed. I cant even count the amount of times large ad agencies in Melbourne sent us jobs that were completely useless on the printing press.. as the designers had no idea on the printing process...

Keep up the good work!.. let me know what you decide on.. and i will ensure that we get a red hot deal....

Yer I think we should go for something simple like some of the black & white examples above. I've just been playing around with photoshop & trying a few things out for fun.

Hi I was just wondering if you have come up with an idea for the club sticker? If not I think you should try to capture the racing heritage and try to put it together with the new. Just one more thing it would be good to keep the shape of the sticker round or small enough to put on the rear quater window. Just some sugestions.

I just took a punt at a design. I don't like the stock Z (I only really like them lowered, larger wheels, open grille, and front lip), so I used the image that Sulio used.

The black border around each image is just to square off the image, they wouldn't actually be printed. These would be vinyl cut stickers, presumably in white. So everything that is black would be white, and everything that is white would be removed.

If anybody wants to take a closeup photo of their window for me, I'll show you what I mean :)

Eh, I'll leave that up to someone else if that's what gets decided haha. Took me long enough to do that, I doubt I can be arsed doing another one unless it was a really stylised version.

yeah they look good, i like the 'black being the white bits and the white being the clear', that looks good on a car window. I think i like the first design best, mostly becuase of its shape, fits up the top of the rear windscreen nicely.
but i do agree with evan in having a side on profile view might look good, so you can see the long bonnett and other distinguished features.
i have no design skills... i could do one in MS paint, but thats as far as my skills go. :)
