Honestly this is more of a technical post in terms of graphic design, but it focuses on my love of ds106radio. So there’s that.

Andrew Allingham made this wonderful design for ds106radio in its 2011 infancy, and it has sustained. There have been other admirable attempts to create art for ds106radio. But Andrew’s vision continues to resonate with its imagery of apocalypse, nod to its technology, and accepted cool factor.

Andrew admitted his artwork was probably too low a resolution for shirts, posters, etc. So this is where this post’s effort comes into play. I rebuilt the artwork using techniques that I first developed to trace old school WWF wrestling art. The result is a scaleable vector version of Alan’s logo. Here’s a PDF, but also a zip of the .ai file which separates the five colors by layers.

This GIF shows the separations.

I found the original font Andrew used for his design from Dafont.com called Coallition. So Andrew Forgrave please be sure to remix this version of the logo in the ds106rad.io style!

As always remix, reuse, rock.
