View Full Version : Sponsor Logos anyone?

21st April 2008, 06:53 PM
I'm in love with a few of these Sponors seen in the game (especially AIcorp, 2ND SKIN and +01 CORP) and I just got the idea to print them on T-Shirt as I found a nice, small store in my city that prints stuff on T-Shirts for little money.
I could either go into a shop and buy something that I can get everywhere or I pay 3 Euros more and get something that looks 1) stylish and 2) is of high quality.
And even though I have a few nice designs in my mind (which I'll print sooner or later maybe) I feel the need of those stylish sponsors on my T-Shirts ;)

So the question I want to ask is if there is the chance those Logos could be available as vectors somewhere?
The resolution on WOHD's website is rather small and vectorizing by myself could lead to some annoying results.
Also, I want to know if it's ok to print them (copyright and stuff).

And yes I would like to hear some official words here :D

As long as you're not selling them for profit, I think you're free to use them on a t-shirt. I've printed tonnes of T-shirts for friends, using iron-on print paper, and most of those had some sort of copyrighted image on (film images and so on).

Besides, like WipeoutZone itself, it's essentially free advertising for the game - so I'm sure Sony would be more pleased than angry :)

I'm glancing nervously at the door now I've typed all that ....

Max, if you tell me what logos you want, I could vectorize them for you. I was thinking about printing myself a couple of shirts as well.

The ones mentioned above, definitely.

I could do it myself, but that will end in much manual work because just a simple button press won't do the job satisfying.
Not to mention that some images have to many details you can't even view properly.
That's the reason why I ask for some AI or PDF or SWF files.

I'll vectorize them if there's no chance to get them from Studio Liverpool.
I would just like to know if you guys can hand out the logos or not.

And thanks Egg for the copyright thingie.
And I really appreciate your offer, Martin. But let's see what SL has to say, first ;)

I should've kept the source files I used to make the WipEout HD avatar pack, I essentially had all the sponsor logos in original resolution on a monochrome background. I could've hosted these for you, to ease your work a little. You can try using the avatars I made, but since they are at a small resolution I doubt you will come up with something correctly scaled (Check the "Customs Avatar" thread in the "Evolution Engine")

I vectorized the 2NDSKIN logo (took me about 1,5 hours!)
Everything is manual work. Looks pretty close to the original.
Next is +O1CORP an AIcopr - those should be done a lot quicker (especially +O1CORP ;)).

Here's a high-res PNG image (http://cybershot.cy.funpic.de/kram/sonstige_bilder/WipEoutZone/wipeoutHD/sponsors/2NDSKIN_logotype_new.png) (about 130KB)
Here’s a PDF (http://cybershot.cy.funpic.de/kram/sonstige_bilder/WipEoutZone/wipeoutHD/sponsors/2NDSKIN_logotype_new.pdf) (about 1,8MB)
And here’s the Illustrator file (http://cybershot.cy.funpic.de/kram/sonstige_bilder/WipEoutZone/wipeoutHD/sponsors/2NDSKIN_logotype_new.ai) (about 140KB)

Have fun :)

And yes I know that those small letters are missing. But 1) it's to small to read, 2) it's probably to small for a T-Shirt print anyway and 3) I just wanted to get that finished now ;)

Very good job, Max! :clap

Awesome work! :)

I hate reviving old posts but what happened to those images? I mean, I can't download the AI file for example, and I need those pics because I want to make a T-shirt too haha

I love all the sponsors logos and I would be very happy if someone can upload them, thank you very much and sorry for reviving :'(

I knew I saved that 2ndskin png somewhere

Don't have the .ai though

21st July 2011, 05:59 PM
Thank you very much rdmx!! Now I can start making one of the two t-shirts, I really apreciate this!

Please, if there is someone who have the Ai pic upload it! THANK YOU. Btw, I love this forum :D

Haha, totally forgot about that thread :)

So, Iíve corrected the Illustrator-File, as some paths were totally messed up. Have fun with the PDF (http://cybershot.cy.funpic.de/kram/sonstige_bilder/WipEoutZone/wipeoutHD/sponsors/2NDSKIN_logotype_new.pdf) and/or AI (http://cybershot.cy.funpic.de/kram/sonstige_bilder/WipEoutZone/wipeoutHD/sponsors/2NDSKIN_logotype_new.ai) :)

I didnít make the AI-corp-logo back then, maybe Iíll give it a try someday ;)

I don't know why but I can't download your files Sausehuhn, if I click them I just get an about:blank page and Right Click - Save link as didn't solve my problem :'(

Maybe that's because files are uploaded on the internal server of this forum? :O If it is possible, can you upload them to an external server? such as Megaupload, Imageshack or something like that, btw the link provided by rdmx worked fine.

Thank you very much!

No firewalls or proxies on this side, people. (Of course, I use a completely different OS than most of you. Still, no problem opening the files).

24th July 2011, 12:07 PM
I hope sausehuhn doesn't mind, but I uploaded the pdf/ai on my web server, see if you can download this one:

http://xhair.net/2NDSKIN_logotype_new_sausehuhn.pdf (http://xhair.net/2NDSKIN_logotype_new_sausehuhn.pdf)

The old png I uploaded didn't have the bottom letters filled in.

Thanks again rdmx, I was able to dowload the file uploaded in your server. Anyway I'm using Linux :/ do you think that's the problem? >.<

So thank you everybody! You helped me a lot!
