    Default Van Halen Hybrid Logo

    Hey folks,

    Not sure if someone's done this already, but I've being have a play in Illustrator trying to pick up some basic skills in that program and decided to have a go at making a hybrid logo combining the classic VH logo with the Van Hagar version.

    It didn't turn out as well as I would've liked given some unforseen issues with object grouping and clipping masks (doesn't that sound fun!), but I thought I'd share a link to it nonetheless in case anyone wants to use it as an avatar.

    Apologies for the links only, but I don't see a useable link in flickr to embed the images in the thread itself.

    Nicely done.

    At first glance, this come to mind...

    You can't have 2 logos in 1 band at the same time!

    There is a youtube user who has had a hybrid version of the logo as his avatar for quite a while, not near as cool as the one you posted up though.

    I like it ,didn't like the Van Hagar rings that much anyway. Like the way you used both.

    Always thought this logo should be used in a tour featuring both Sam and Dave. Very nice.

    Back in the day of the Inside Magazine when Gary joined the band the magazine said to create a new Van Halen logo and they would post all the entries. There were about 10 entries printed and that design was my entry!

    Cool, I'd love to see those. I always thought the original logo was near brilliant in its simplicity.
