  1. True, flags aren't corporate or sports logos, but in a way they are a brand, or at least a part of the brand that is the country and its people so that's why I believe a good flag should keep things simple, while not being way too simple that it straddles the line of being forgetful. The Croats have a signature in the red and white checkerboard, and it's been that way since the middle ages. That's a hell of a lot of heritage and history to work with when designing a flag; it should've been enough to keep things simple and also to create a kickass flag. The way I look at the shield crown is that it's just a lazy way to symbolize the country's unity after the war and I don't know if that's worth sacrificing some of the flag's legibility, memorability and reproductive capabilities.
  2. Thanks for the mention @ec5 :)) I think you hit the nail on the head in regards of my opinion. I too, like @dado, struggle with loving our flag completely. Multiple coats of arms always bugged me. I get they were trying to unite the different regions and represent them, but in the end they've produced an overly complicated flag which definitely breaks some general rules of good flag design. Personally, I'd get rid of the regional shields completely, the checker is a strong enough symbol to stand on it's own and represent the people and the country competently. What I like about your design is that you've toned down the saturation of the colors, it's a welcomed change 'cause the digital flag is just too much for the eyes. Overall, it's a cool rendition of Croatia's flag, you've done a good job with it; its fun seeing Zagreb in red again. :)) And as far as my favorite proposal for our flag, it's gotta be this one. The ratios could use work, but its pleasing to look at.
  3. It's a joke my guy...no need for frustration. It's easy to make Rogan the butt of many jokes, so it would be a borderline sin to not do it.
  4. Yeah. the ideas are there, but the execution is really dodgy. There are a lot of people on these boards that could do a much better, cleaner job.
  5. Is this the first logo where absolutely nothing good can be said? :/// Hmm?
  6. Overall I like Winterslag's look. I would've personally left the ball white, as it was in the historic logo, it provides more visual contrast and interest. Or, better yet, make it two-tone, as it is in your design, but instead of being red and black, I would try white and black/red (whatever looks best). Also, I think this is the best crown so far
  7. Looking good man, keep up the great work and welcome to the boards. I could nitpick the logos but that's neither here nor there...overall I like them and I like the idea of this series. The kit is absolutely stunning, always loved a good pink kit
  8. Yeah, pretty close, if I don't end up finding it, it'll have to be the one I use.
  9. Hey, I thought you guys might be able to help me out by recognizing the brush script font that's being used in this logo, I cannot seem to find it anywhere:
  10. Hopefully I can finish mine today and send it in to you.
  11. For the "RADIO" I used Bebas Neue and modified it a bit. The "101" is custom.
  12. Hey, nice, that means the idea came through with the execution.
  13. I've played around a bit and made a concept cover for one of Radio 101's shows. I've planned on it being a standardized style for all the shows the radio has, they would differ slightly from show to show.
  14. Kickstarting this OLD thread of mine, hope it's ok with the mods. I've posted a new redesign on Dribbble (And here's the Dribbble link https://dribbble.com/shots/4662225-Radio-101) and wanted to share it with the boards. It's really a clean-up of the classic Radio 101's logo. The radio station has been around since 1984 and it was always known as the urban, different, freethinking and a no BS kind of station. They're the first radio station in Croatia to have dedicated shows that played hard rock, heavy metal, and alternative music so their logo has become a sort of symbol for the non-mainstream alternative youth. The old logo needed some work, it's a bit too grungy for my taste. Here's the old one: And here's the clean-up:
  15. Those "shards" reminded me of the Commonwealth flag. So there...
  16. Damn...that falcon looks so aggressive, I like it!
  17. Sorry for the bump but If anyone needs an invite, I've got 3 currently, send me your portfolio via email to oliverpetrovic@hotmail.com and you'll have a chance to win one. The deadline is on the 10th and the draft is on the 12th. Good luck! https://dribbble.com/shots/3923003-Invites
  18. At least it doesn't have a trademark symbol on it...I guess that's a positive.
  19. Hey guys, I just rummaged through the database of Croatian city flags and just wanted to show you the uncovered gems I've found under a mountain of SOB flags (seal on a bedsheet flags). 1. Varaždin (currently in use): 2. Pula (currently in use): 3. Čakovec (was used from '93 to '94, It's a shame 'cause it was replaced by an SOB flag): Bonus! It's not a city flag but the flag of the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Petroleum Engineering in Zagreb: But now this, this is something every citizen of Split should be ashamed of:
  20. Found it! https://www.behance.net/gallery/7189541/F3-Corporate-Identity Thanks to @BrandMooreArt Pinterest feed
  21. Hey guys, I saw a page on Facebook (''professional photographer'') using this logo and I swear I remember it from somewhere else, it can't be their logo. I couldn't find the original creator, maybe you guys know where it's from.
