Star Citizen - W.O.E. Syndicate

Post subject: W.O.E. Syndicate
I created a new org with spectrum ID /WOE

I'm planning on making it a bounty hunting/smuggling syndicate that uses legitimate trade as a front. I don't expect it would fool many in game, and that's what I want. The trouble I'm having is coming up with a name from the acronym W.O.E. that suggests legitimate business.

W = ?
O = ?
E = Export, Exports, etc. something like that.

A - "Hey, aren't you in "WOE" ?
B - "Yes, I am."
A - "You guys are smugglers and bounty hunters I hear."
B - "No, sir! We at W____ O____ Exports only deal in legitimate trade."
A - "But you're a syndicate."
B - *smiles*
A - "I see."

Any help would be very appreciated!

Wide Orbit Exports?
Wide Open Exports?

Wipe Orbit Exports sounds good. Added to the list of possibles.

Wide Open Exports sounds good too. Only because I'm picturing two sexy left and right legs in fishnets as a banner, with WOE in the center. A circular trim tag "WIDE OPEN" and on the bottom "EXPORTS"

Cysec, you're a genius!

I like 'Wide Orbit', as, its actually a thing.


On a side note, the 1993 game 'Syndicate' is free on origin, today anyways. Grab it for nostalgia sake.

I dropped "EXPORTS" for "EXTREME" I almost went with "EXTREMISTS" but it held a bit too much of a terrorist theme for me.

Coming up with a way of describing the purpose of the org, and then injecting it into a created history is my next step. At the same time I don't want to publicize a few key details too early in Star Citizens development.

Hmm, I may return to EXPORTS to keep with that whole business front. Not sure. Interchangeable since the graphics only have W.O.E. on it. The text can be changed easily in settings.

Cleaned up logo.

Old


New


The white crosshatch has been fixed for size, the wicked leaf logo size has been increased by 5%, interior shadow added, and stroke outline has been increased by 1. Check org page for most up to date. Not updating the one here. (psst! Can you tell I'm proud?) Very Happy

My only beef with it (and future fix plan) is that the crosshatch border's width isn't consistent, and when I tried to apply a 1px stroke to it, it's uneven lines are very noticeable. Makes it ugly. Don't worry, I'll fix it! Started this one at 300x300 @1200px/i so it's so much more crystal clear! Very Happy ... Sad Until it gets CIG's web compression and dropped to 150x150.

Either way, looks bitchin!

I think the only thing I would adjust (keep in mind Im an idiot) is id make the wicked leaf larger, and jump out so it -just slightly- crossed the boundary of the circle, so it looked 3d-ish, and not penned in by the white.

But in all honesty, Thats pretty damn awesome, and Id be proud to fly that.

Are you looking at the logo above, or the one on the org page? I enlarged the wicked leaf and made it stand out more. If I need to more, lemmie know. Org page has most up to date.

If you'd be proud to fly that, then lemmie know what your handle is. Recruitment isn't open yet, it's by invite.

I made adjustments that made the leaf "more" and when I get the chance I'll post some more versions of it.

I'm trying to keep several elements in focus at the same time. Much to do with my limited understanding of object contrast - having it easily recognizable from a distance (the checkerboard, white next to dark colours, the half cross hatching border, etc.)
Any and all critique is welcome, no, it's begged for!

I tried a larger leaf, but it doesn't seem to want to .. look nice ... Tried getting a nice drop shadow on it, but wasn't the best either. Honestly, I do like the leaf, but larger size or other changes don't seem to work. I'm tempted to find another central logo.

Current

More variations.

It's been decided. The maple leaf logo is being removed (hoping to come up with possible options for CKAAVRO logo with it)

Behold! The new WOE Syndicate logo!

Final.

Needs to be final. I need to start playing around with possible CKAAVRO logos. Should help me leave well enough alone.

Just an update on how my project is proceeding.

Gonna recreate this elsewhere, but using this wix site to set everything up is very helpful. When the game finally comes out, I'm gonna miss this org building stuff

In some regards it's better to ask a harsh critic for opinions, and it seems you might be something of a fan instead. In any case, I'd welcome any advice towards fleshing out my project.

Open invitation standing.

I'm currently working on each dropdown menu item. So that each header button links to a page with the same link options as presented in the dropdown list, as well fleshing out each link of either to be placeholders with temporary concept designs.

Wishing I had more HD Retaliator interior shots. Like, 20, and 5 exterior.
