I'm not sure about the emphasis of having an image of a Z on the sticker logo, after all the sticker will be on an actual Z ;) So if any one was uncertain as to what a Z looked like then they need look no further than the car it is stuck to.

I like Vans use of the word Embracing, subconsciously it points at the cars racing heritage and an owners pride in this.

As a border I like the use of a laurel wreath.

Might have a go at something later.

I love the first one Van.
My only suggestion ti the change the wording from "Embracing the Heritage" to "Embrasing a Legend" or Embracing a Classic" or "Embracing a timeless Classic". Just a few ideas but I do like the first one. Put me down for a couple especially if I could get it in red.

Great stuff Van !
I like the 2nd one. just lose the spoiler or slightly rotate the image to show a little more side-on of the cars outline..
dont you love it when everyone has their 10 cents worth !!

Hi everyone,
This topic is a bit old and Van did these some time ago. I have not had a chance to organise club stickers although Sulio and I did have some discussions relating to them.

I do like the ones that incorporate the silhouette shape of the Z. I'm not sure myself about "embracing the heritage", I think I'd prefer something like:
"embracing a legend"
"embracing a winner"

but then again I'm not really sure we need a tag line on the sticker. The other issue is I did buy www.auszcar.com and have been considering changing the club name to AUSZCAR seeing as its much more fitting now a days. I guess we kinda out grew our boots :).

The solid colour should keep the price down. "Embrace the legend" sounds ok but it might be more effective to have something like EARLY DATSUN Z CARS on there as a clarifier!???

Sulio

EDIT: oh and say a 2mm border about 5mm from the sticker edge as it just looks a bit plain atm.

The way I see it you won't see more shape of the car by turning it sideways since it is a solid image. Plus then you will lose the far head light. Personally I like the image as it is. that's my 20cents worth.  :)

maybe a more simple approach? To be honest I think we just have'nt got "the one" yet! I like the look of Matt Drago's axamples but it would be nice to mix that up with something resembling the fat Z above!????

I don't mind live the legend. But another might be "Experience the legend". Meaning get in and go for a ride or drive it.
We might have to settle on half a dozen examples and start a pole to vote what people like most. Making sure members can only vote once.

Since I occupy myself on the computer many hours a day and I like to be creative, i thought i would have a crack at making a sticker/logo/emblem/trademark/million dollars.

You guys mentioned: "legend", "heritage", "winner"

So i thought how about the bay leaf wreath you would see in those old 60's sports car races and motorsport in general.

Black and white is most effective and a splash of red for the 'Z' to emphasise racing and passion.

Here it is, same design, different writting styles and arrangement, I will probablly do more.

Now thats more like it. My opinion is this has to be the best effort yet. I really like the second one and thats locked in as my first choice. Good work Gottabeabstract!

...Oh and the other issue you mentiond Gav was the Auszcar.com domain name! What are the technical pro's and cons of this name change as far as already existing links out in cyber land etc? I think it sounds better and probably more appropriate. Make's it clear it's not just about Z cars in Victoria and attract more fellow Zeders.

^Agreed, the second one is almost there. I would have the pic of the Z from the front rather than the back and would make the front overlap the wreath to make it look like the car is passing through the wreath.

Re the domain name, there shouldn't be any reason why you couldn't use both viczcar.com ans auszcar.com at the same time and just get viczcar to redirect to auszcar.  Once the search engines have reindexed, turn off viczcar.

I like the new designs, they are pretty cool.  It just seems that the wreath stands out more that the car does.  For the font, how about using the one that gav used for the website banner??  I think that he attached it to this thread somewhere.

Could you do one inverted?  I'd love to have a sticker that the outside was clear and the content was in black/white/colour, if you get what I mean.

But I do agree with the others, I think that we are getting closer!!

Cheers,

Matt
