TV Cream

A bit of business

Logo-commotion

Thinks: "Hmm, bevelling is difficult"That ever-changing TV Cream logo banner! Isn’t that a lot of fun?

Look! There’s Anne Aston! F5-it, and now it’s Derek Griffiths, dooby-doing across the TVC logo! F5 again, and – run! – Evil Edna! F5! F5!! F5!!! Where’s that one with Steve Berry in it gone?

Anyway, you’re probably wondering if making these colourful Creamy clarion-callers is as much fun as it looks. Well, why not find out for yourself? TV Cream is keen to put readers’ own modified TVC logos into the mix, and so we’ve made the image file available for anyone to download… and then tweak with.

Find it here, in Photoshop PSD format.

When you’ve finished decorating it, save it in .JPG format and send it to us at logo@tvcreamtest.co.uk. One house-keeping note, please ensure that the fact this version of TVC is still in beta is clearly stated on the finished image.

If we like what you send us, we’ll pop it up on the site, and – perhaps with the implementation of a few F5s – you’ll see it adorning our latest batch of easy, uncritical nostalgia.

We’ll also credit all artists we use…  erm, somewhere.

NB: We are sorry, we may not be able to return all or any pictures you send in.

UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!

TV Cream reader ‘Glam Racket’ has already sent in his contribution, and it’s great! We’ll be inaugurating it into The Big Logo Hall of Logos very soon, but in the meantime, click the image below to see where the bar is currently set.

They just wanna be winners

    A logo designed using Logo, the computer language you sometimes got in school with a turtle-robot-thing, would be quite nice. You could instruct to go forward 10, turn 90 left, forward 10… or now that I think about it, that might be quite an over-complicated way of writing your title. Actually, this was just a really round about way of pointing out that when I read the title I thought this was going to be an article on Logo. I remember being about 10 and fiddling for ages on a gym floor with one of those turtle things trying to get it to make some clever pattern but never quite being able to get beyond basic shapes.

    Full-marks to Glam Racket for supplying a second image, which once again highlights a particular TVC peccadillo. It’s in the banner rotation, but you can also see it – yep – here.

    Can someone get a grown-up to come round and help me? I can’t quite cut the template out (I’m using safety scissors.) The dotted line is *very* faint
