Robbie the Robot Logo for SciFi Philippines

Oh, gee, I think I'm rediscovering my talent for vector art. This Robbie the Robot logo actually took me less than an hour to whip up. Hooray for Inkscape and Bezier curves!

For comparison, here's a full-body photo of the original Robbie the Robot, lifted from Galactic Voyager. Only one drawing for now. My only problem with this logo is that it's black-and-white, and I can't think of any other color combination to throw at it. That's what happens when the character on which this is based on is mainly black to begin with. Oh, well.

The font used above is Gunhead Chick, lifted from Blambot, as usual.


  1. Neat! Don't need those damn colors if the logo looks like that. Lifeless just like the robot is.

  2. Well, I don't know what the Forbidden Planet purists will have to say about 'lifeless'....

  3. no, no, dominque. too 1950s cartoon. come up with another one.

    just a thought.

  4. Not too fond of this myself as I prefer the variant of the Philippine flag; but if you say it's too 1950's cartoon, then that means I've succeeded in my objective. That's the look we were looking for.
