Is there any special program to download, or way to make those motifs that appear on clan members tanks, was talking to some buddies about the possibility of a new clan and this subject came up.

 

For instance my first clan had the motif of two Grolsch bottles, I suspect this is not something you just throw together in paint, just wondering how it is done.

Photoshop or Gimp is kind of a requirement, seeing as Paint doesn't support transparency (though doing the initial work in Paint is not a bad idea). 

It's a lot of nitpicking, but not exactly hard - as long as you realize what has the potential to look decent in small formats. Keep it simple. Anyway, creating good/funny/offensive 25x25-pixel icons in Teamspeak, that's a real challenge.

Our clan emblem is made by a graphic designer in an advertising company, so if you have deep pockets or are connected, like us, that is one option.:B

Back when I created my logo (so it may have changed) it is indeed just thrown together with a paint package (e.g. the free GIMP).

 

You need your logo in 195x195 (for the webpage) and 64x64 (for the tank) sizes.

 

Use JPEG, PNG or GIF format then edit the clan data and upload the files.  Fairly sure you can choose different logs for webpage, tanks and global map.

 

Main problem you'll have is getting something that is legible and looks good on the tank. 

Most logos that clans put on look utter crap with too much detail and the wrong colours.

 

Go for something simple with stand out colours - like, and I really really really hate to say this, the freaking Dingers.

I was in a clan that had a CDC as a logo.  That was brilliant.

Personally I think it's worth the 2500 gold just to see how long naming your clan "Dirty Bird" and having this logo would last.

Now I'd eat chicken there.  Inspired.

I have an old, experimental account named FarCall for messing about at low tiers.  A handful of people did notice and comment.
