  • ME Emblem Design???

    What are you thinking the ME’s emblem design might be?

    Let’s start with looking at our C7’s emblem

    Here is an emblem option that “CRABBYJ” suggested for the ME's emblem.

    I like it for three reasons. It is an evolution of the C6 through C6 through C7 logo, and, IMO it looks “faster/more aero” than the C7’s – taking us into the future.

    Keith Cornett/CorvetteBlogger also reported that Kirk in early 2013 talked about the new C7′s crossed flag design, “because that design is everywhere on its on the apparel and its in all the advertising. We wanted to give it a little more speed, its got a lot more “V” to it, a lot more gesture, and we really think it typifies the performance of the car?”

    And third and most important, it is “easily cleanable” — a nice improvement that started with the C6’s logo (I know Corvette staff had heard repeated complaints about how keeping the tiny inside corners/crevices on the C5’s logo was a total pain in the butt).

    Consistent with what Kirk noted, that immediately above, possible ME emblem has that tighter “V” which gives it, again using his words to describe the C7’s emblem, would also give it “a little more speed, its got a lot more “V” to it, a lot more gesture, and we really think it typifies the performance of the car.”

    Here are a couple additional suggestions for the ME’s logo, the first also by “RaginBull”, the second one also by CRABBYJ.

    “IronV” suggested this one, though as he noted, “updated.”

    Do you have a favorite, or a new one to throw into the contenders list?

    I'd love to see mine with part of the emblem color matched ...
    A thought if I might ...

        The tighter V seems like a good possibility, as it follows the recent generational emblem evolution as John mentioned.

        Personally, I'd like something more novel and radical, perhaps borrowing more strongly from the early emblem styles.

        Here's the full emblem line-up for reference:
        My C8:
        '20 Elkhart Lake Blue 2LT Coupe, Natural Interior, GT2 Two-Tone Seats, Performance Exhaust, Front Lift, Carbon Flash Wheels, Engine Appearance Package 2000 Status December 27, 2019; 3000 Status January 2, 2020; 3400 Status March 10, 2020;TPW March 16, 2020; Built June 4th, 2020; Delivery July 1, 2020

        Current Vettes:
        '68 Lemans Blue 327/350 Convertible
        '91 Turquoise Convertible with Hardtop
        '14 Lime Rock Green 2LT Convertible, Black Top, Kalahari, 7-Speed, Performance Exhaust

          I too like the “sharper angled” version of the current flags. Not only for the evolutionary approach at the existing but for the simplicity of design. However, incorporation of that emblem into the “shield” shaped emblem by CRABBY J especially with a gold background as illustrated would also be very ?. JMHO

            Do you think consideration is being given to how it might work with Corvette Racing's Jake Emblem???

ID:	2115That is a really good suggestion. I had not thought of that. I just hope that if so, it would be a part of a “filled” in circle, within the emblem “surround.” Without it being that, cleaning it would make cleaning a C5 emblem a piece of cake.

                How about crossed flags in the shape of a Z (for Zora). With the horizontal part of the Z (which could even be angled a bit) being the flags, and the vertical part of the Z being the flag sticks.

                Wish I knew how to mock up what I'm thinking, but I have zero artistic skills on a computer.

                  Here is not what you were thinking, but closer than what we already have on this thread — also suggested by CRABBYJ.

                    I'm anxiously awaiting all things ME. Hopefully when it finally gets here GM will have it as perfect as is possible and it will exceed in all aspects. It will be compared to those similar cars that have been around for awhile which will be a tough road for the ME.

                      Very good points. If one counts individual parts (other than comparatively little things like bolts and washers), you get to about 5,000 parts on a new Corvette (source = Mary Barra). It is one daunting challenge that GM has undertaken. And for sure it will be compared with the outstanding C7 generations, and many other-brand competitors.

                      Again, we are not concerned, i.e., we are hopefully getting one of the earliest ones made.

                        They need to debut it in well sorted fashion. Cuz, you're right, it's going to immediately be compared to the heavy hitters.

                        Taking the below, excellent “tighter V” design by CRABBYJ, and thinking of this recent comment by Zerv02, that “Its the Corvette logo, just modified/modernized and pays homage to Zora Duntov,” for those with a photoshop skill, how above this “tight V” which however the French flag removed, and a stylized Z (as in the Zora TV character) replacing it?

                            Whatever it is, i hope it's a modern design and not a throwback. The ME has been so long in coming, and will be the most modern Vette, so having a badge from the '50s would seem out of place to me.
