Background Reference materials -- signs, patches, logos

Postby Whitney » Sun Mar 23, 2014 9:00 am

I wanted to create a thread collecting some of the various "background" materials for the Verse, such as business logos, currency, flags, cargo stickers, warning signs & more. I know I'd find this a useful resource for fic, and figure it can be helpful for artists as well!

For example, here's one we all recognize... Blue Sun corporation!

Here's another corporation: Weyland Yutani

Best part: well, Alien/Aliens crossover! (let's just pretend all of the rest of the Alien films & Prometheus just never happened, shall we?)

The Fighting Elves (one of Jayne's t-shirts)

Chinese Translation: "zhan dou de xiao jing ling" = "the fighting, or militant, elves"

I couldn't find a solid explanation of what the Fighting Elves were -- this looks like a military unit to me, but we know Jayne didn't serve. I saw some fan speculation that it was some sort of sports team...
