Gosh I love star wars.
In honor of SWTOR early launch tomorrow, I whipped this up. If you want to print out a copy to gift/hang or whatever as a lot of people seem to want, I made a full 300 dpi pdf
There’s a black border above and below, when printing I would trim it (Kinkos has great cutters for anyone to use, free of charge). Also, Kinkos will print a pretty decent quality heavy gloss (try to get 10pt) relatively cheap. If you want to print it bigger, let me know in the comments. If enough people are interested I’ll redo it from the vector backing for a 24×36″ poster size or something. I DO NOT OWN ANYTHING STAR WARS COPYRIGHT RELATED. I WILL NOT CHARGE ANYTHING FOR THIS. I am also not accepting donations for this piece. If you have lots of gratitude, please leave a comment and show me some love, or email me at avi at avinasharora dot com, or use my contact form, or whatever.
I was recently approached to help do some logo design. It was for a friend, so I did free of charge (permitting he’d allow me to post it on my website)
Here’s the original doodle he sent me, his wife was actually the doodler.
I’ll skip all the version stuff because nobody really wants to see it except him and I. Here are a bunch of color swatches he asked for on the final version(s). The last two are an alternate version for a green initiative. I enjoyed this a lot, mostly because of who I was working with but also because the underlying reasons and motivations were very similar to another project I’ve been working on. Also, I like curvy things.

I did the logo design as well (which appears on the back), but that was a separate project and, in internet terms, ancient history.
Also, I realized I should probably be watermarking my images and not putting ultra high resolution versions up on the internet.
Anywho, some card-age!
I found that it’s a lot easier to cut up my playing around into small segments, this way I can really try a specific concept or idea and not adulterate it with seven other ideas, and critiques are easier to make.
Admittedly, this is FAR easier than a large scale project, and the speed of start to finish is far more enjoyable and gratifying. Let me know what you think PLEASE. The featured image wasn’t a real try, it was just for fun, but I’ll link the full size of that too in case you are curious.
I was bored….that’s the whole story.
I had wanted to do this for a while, and it’s relatively simple. You see, I suck at typography, and therefore I can churn out little pet projects like this without caring much. I’m sure some of my friends would love to tell me the fifty things I did wrong here, and that’s what that comment section below is for :). Don’t get me wrong, I do want to get better, but since I’m pretty bad (compared to actual typographers) I’m not burdened by perfection. so blah. Make me not suck!
