Walking club emblems

Postby phATty » Sun 13 Nov, 2022 6:57 pm

A sad reality of the Tasmanian University Bushwalking Club is its lack of logo. I feel like we need something to raise proud in the air put on a tshirt or atleast silently admire.
Post your favourite walking club emblems, feel free to discuss and share. Would also be happy to take any suggestions anyone may have!

I've always been quite fond of the Sydney University Bushwalking Club's logo, great motto too!:

phATty, I decided to play around with AI image generators. First, I asked DALL-E to generate a "logo for a forum about bushwalking in australia". This was the best it could come up with, but clearly it understands the concept of a logo:

Unfortunately, I've run out of free credits for DALL-E until next month, so I tried the free options at the Stable Diffusion image generator.

It doesn't really know the concept of a logo, but this was what it came up with for "Tasmanian bushwalker, cartoon":

Obviously you'd need to add writing to these. I liked the result it gave for "Tasmanian university bushwalker, line art". Someone could definitely turn this into a logo:

It returned this quite striking image for the text "Tasmanian University bushwalkers with large backpacks, line art":

Finally, here's a very stylish response to the text "Tasmanian bushwalkers camping, line art":

As for mottos, SUBW's "Press on regardless" is hard to beat. It has just the right combination of irreverence and harsh reality. Here are some thought starters:

"Almost There"
"Mud is Free"
"Rarely Lost"
"Dolor et Languor" (latin for "Pain and Tiredness")
"Ambulans et Castra" (latin for "Walking and Camping")

There’s always the US Marine Corps’ “Embrace the Suck”!

Tas Uni bushwalking club - I think "Mud is free" is appropriate to both Tasmanian bushwalking and Uni students as a motto. Can't help on the logo though.

I've always really liked the Rough Stuff Fellowship logo. They're a cycling club though. One of the founder's mottos was "I never go on a walk without taking my bicycle"
