“The People’s Image,” a metal working project in the late 1980s, was developed by Emmett Koehn for the Xerox Company. The People’s Image was to be the first multi-colored sticker, specifically an animated one. This was to be used primarily in San Francisco, where there were anti graffiti artists who were very much against the images of naked women that were plastered across the city. In order to advertise the company, they decided to take advantage of the controversial situation and come up with a sticker that was geared toward the city’s gay community. A great deal of controversy surrounded the project, however.
“The People’s Image” was the first and last project of Emmett Koehn and his partner, Mark Wigley. They wanted to make a product that could be sold for cheap and would stay up all the time. They came up with the idea for the People’s Image by using computer based software, Adobe Illustrator, and pinterest, the social networking site. They were able to design the product completely on their pinterest account. They used Adobe Acrobat to create the basic layout of the emblem and the company logo.
The People’s Image was made available in a limited edition of fifty, four color pages. The printing cost was low, since most of the product consisted of just the four color pages and a back cover. This limited edition proved to be popular with the demographic the couple was targeting. Although it didn’t help them to reach their goal, the limited edition still ended up being a success, in spite of the fact that there was little promotion or advertising.
The People’s Image isn’t the first Star Wars fan art work to come out of the United States. The original Star Wars poster that was put out by Ansel Adams in 1970 had actually been the inspiration for the image you see on the logo. The reason why the logo is so popular is because it captures the spirit of the original Star Wars trilogy.
The People’s Image takes that same design and distributes it to fans who will print up posters, bumper stickers, and even t-shirts to advertise their devotion to the People’s Image. They have received a lot of positive feedback from their fans, and they have received negative criticism as well. The bottom line is that the design was meant to be funny and whimsical, rather than to poke fun at Star Wars.
One thing that the People’s Image seems to have lacked is a cohesive design. The black and white background looks like it was done by two different people, when actually the person who did the design, Joe Danger, actually made it look the way that it does because he used several different colors in the design. Some fans think that this can be distracting. Well, if this is the case then perhaps it wasn’t done by a true Star Wars fan, but the good news is that this person actually designed the People’s Image in the first place. The person who created the original design, Joe Danger, told the tale of how he came up with the idea for the People’s Image in a article that was included in the Star Wars canon reference book The Star Wars Insider. In the article, he said that he came up with the idea while he and his friend were watching the movie The Empire Strikes Back.
He went on to say that he got the idea after he saw the original Star Wars movie and realized how much more crude the designs of the Death Star and the Imperial Star Destroyers looked compared to the nice and detailed pictures of the Resistance ships that had appeared earlier. He said that he and his friend were looking through the Internet at some fan art that had been posted and when they saw the ones that had the Death Stars in the background, they knew that this was going to be a big project. Ever since the creation of the People’s Image, there have been several modifications to the design that have made the star ships in the original trilogy much more aesthetically appealing.
The new design has certainly come off as more official in the Star Wars universe. I don’t think that the original intention of the People’s Image was to make the design look like something that you would see on the Death Star or the Imperial Star Destroyer. The fact that the person who designed the original design didn’t include any space battle or ship combat in the design is the one thing that makes the design unique. The creation of the People’s Image seems to be an inside joke by people inside the Star Wars community. If you are someone who loves the original trilogy and the films, then you should definitely check out the People’s Image. I know I look forward to the new updates that come along with the films so that we get to see what Star Wars fans think about the latest designs.
