Vespa Club of the Philippines artwork collection

Just thought of compiling the assortment of artworks done since our club’s foundation in 2006. I plan to add to this gallery if and when a new design comes up in the future. :)

A little backgrounder for each design are detailed after the jump.

Vespa Club of the Philippines (Cog Design)


This is the one of two logo studies that I did for the club done in late 2006.  This logo was unanimously selected because of its traditional cog/gearwheel design common in other Vespa Club logos around the world.  The three wasps, country map, and banner also appears in logos of the Vespa Clubs in the Italy, France, and the U.S. among others.

2nd logo study (2006)

This is the 2nd logo study I submitted to the club.  The shape of this design is based on the national coat of arms of the Philippines. The sun served as the Vespa’s headlight, and the tri-color (red, white & blue) in the legshield and fender design.  The symbolic three stars are inserted in the word “PILIPINAS.”

I’ve previously blogged about the two logo studies here.

VCOP (2007)

“VCOP” has been the known acronym for Vespa Club of the Philippines. The above logo is a product of a collaborative effort among the club members.  It was conceptualized by Brian Dungo and designed by Mario Rodas.  The artwork above utilized the familiar Vespa script font with the target/RAF (Royal Air Force) logo (usually associated with the mod culture and the vintage scooter scene) to stand for the letter ‘O’.

This particular artwork appeared on our 2nd club shirt and the first batch of the club’s reflective vest. I have previously blogged about this design here.

Vespa Club Pilipinas button (2008)

This was the artwork of the button pin made during my term as the club’s president in 2008.  The design incorporates the 3 stars & the sun (elements from the Philippine flag) within the target logo. The button pins were distributed to our members during the Vespa Jamboree (2nd Angono Round-up).  “PILIPINAS” is the Tagalog/Filipino equivalent of the word Philippines.

Vespa Club Pilipinas w/ Flag (2009)

Although the club has been nicknamed “VCOP,” what the acronym actually stood for wasn’t easily identifiable by people outside the local scootering scene.  Thus, nowadays, the Vespa Club of the Philippines prefer to be simply called “Vespa Club” for short.  It’s the reason why the above artwork prominently displays “VESPA CLUB” in larger text.  It’s also the first time I used the Philippine flag (and not just certain elements of it) in an artwork for the club.

This is design is being used in the current batch of reflective vests being sold in the club’s forum.

official club logo (animated)

This one’s pretty cool!  It’s an animated .gif file with where the wasps’ wings are flapping, and the cog’s turning.  It’s designed by Marion Navarro (aka wcsmarion).  First saw it displayed as his signature in the club’s forum.

It moves and it’s awesome! :D

    Hey John…

    Great to see that your blog’s up and running again. They’re not that many SEA blogs about Vespas and classic scooters in general so, your is quite refreshing.

    BTW, my vote goes to the second logo the “Pilipinas” one. I think it’s quite original especially the thing you did with the sun to resemble a headlight.

      Glad you like what you see here, SkuterHijau! Fact is, I preferred the 2nd logo study too, back when I just designed ‘em. But as they say, the cog design is tradition. :)
