    I'd been thinking of drawing up a 'Katana Owners Club' badge for us Raiyn....


    ...but unfortunately the initials spell KOC :shock::facepalm:

    I tried one of those Blackstar solid state amps and was horrified by the tone, even the Marshall Code freaked me out for the 2 minutes I tried it, it sounded like I was playing a Digitech multi-effects pedal. I'm hoping the Katana will do better and not require so much tweaking to get a good sound, the demos certainly look good.

    You're over thinking it.
    Five minutes in Snapseed.....

    Change the "Owner's Club" font to mimic the Boss font perhaps......
    Only thing left to do is try it.

    I spotted that one too Raiyn, but unfortunately it's the font Roland use for the names of their kit, not the BOSS logo font :(

    Not to worry, I work in Graphics, so have the resources to get creative with it :thumb:

    (that's my lunch hours gone for a couple of days! :D)

    Great job on badge.
    Leaving "Owner's Club" font in that layout as is works.
    It gives it typographic contrast to set it apart from the logo.

    Actually CG, I was thinking of omitting the Boss logo - just Katana Owners Club... But using the style of the Boss font, and possibly the Katana kanji symbol?

    Will have a try and see what happens :D stuff I do usually ends up bearing little resemblance to the image I have in my head :shock:

    That makes more sense.
    You will then know it to be associated with the brand, but still an entity of its own.

    I misunderstood from reading post earlier.
    My reading comprehension skills tapped out early today.
