Hey guys,

Currently I am competing for an international school project on the subject: 'Driving and drinking? No, THANKS!'

My assignment is to make a logo and a poster for the project.I decided to put some rhetorical questions and sentences in the background of the poster in the languages of all of the countries included in the project. So I would really need your help in translating the sentences below in Welsh, Irish, Spanish and Italian:

'Drinking and driving? No THANKS!' this is the slogan
'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'
'THINK!'
'Is it worth it?'

And also I would need your opinions on the logos I have made so far. Which is the best? if you like neither do you have any ideas what I could do?

The first is best. But I think the "drinking and driving" text should be along one side instead of both. :D :jmp:

Welsh translation:

Drinking and driving? No THANKS!'
Yfed a gyrru? Dim diolch!

'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'
Wedi meddwi? Cer allan o'r car. Dwi eisio dod adref yn fyw.

'THINK!'
MEDDWL!

'Is it worth it?'
Ydi hi'n werth gwneud?

Plus I like the first one best. :tmb:

Spanish:

'Drinking and driving? No THANKS!'

¿Beber y conducir? No, gracias.

'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'

Si estás ebrio, sal del auto. Quiero que vuelvas a casa vivo.

'THINK!'
'Is it worth it?'

¡Piensa!
¿No es mejor?

OH, and I like the 1st one

Lovely logos! Here's Irish as best I can;

'Drinking and driving? No THANKS!'
Ól agus tiomáint? Ná, go raibh maith agat!

'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'
Má thagann ólte - fágfar an carr. Ba mhaith liom go dtága me abhaile beo.

'THINK!'
Smaoineofar!

'Is it worth it?
Cad is fiú é?

I like the first one. I'd move the 'Drinking and' text, though, so that the top of the text is level with the top of the text on the right hand side. Centre it to the side of the triangle. I hope that makes sense!

Awesome work, NW :)

I agree with the rest and like the first one the best. The text is odd though. Maybe a curve to the top text to mimic the swirving auto image then blur it a bit to reflect impaired vision?

Something like this (Hope you don't mind) :)

whoa,camelia.nice :tmb: i think they are all good.

EDIT: HEY I like teh skeleton one! :p and no, no need german translation.

Legend Killer@ FANTASTIC IDEA!!! i will do it on teh poster because it wont be very readable on a small logo! :D THANKS! :hug:

THANK YOU FOR THE HELP! :hug: ALL OF YOU!

OK most of you seem to like the 1st one the best... actually all of you do :p Don't you think that the bottle is a tad too detailed for a logo? isnt the other 'slippery road'-sign logo better?

:) And I will start the background of the poster right away thanks to your translations! I will ask you for advice on the poster too

'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'

Si estás ebrio, sal del auto. Quiero que vuelvas a casa vivo.


What you translated says more "If youy are drunk get off the car. I want you to return home alive". I'd change the last part to "Quiero volver a casa con vida"

'THINK!'
'Is it worth it?'

¡Piensa!
¿No es mejor?


Here the last part is actually "¿Vale la pena?" :)

Hey tomorrow is my deadline on teh poster and I need to finish it tonight *I know I lagged a lot :whi:*

here is the main idea of the poster. it will have the logo basically but more detailed. teh slippery road sign is supposed to be squashed and a bottle rolling next to it on a road, symbolizing i a non-bloody way the actual car accident. I will make teh background very dark and the things you translated would be there pale on the background and thats about it.

So do you think it is a good idea? Is everything is will be spositioned ok? and will it look good?

Spanish
"Ponle un freno a la muerte,y maneja sobrio por tu vida"

English
"Put a brake to death,and drive sober for your life"


Hope you like it :)

still need an Italian translation ?


'Drinking and driving? No THANKS!'
'Bere e guidare ? No GRAZIE' or literally 'Guidare e bere ? No GRAZIE' !, but #1 sounds much better to my ears

'if you are drunk - get off the car. I want to come home alive'
'se sei ubriaco - scendi dalla macchina. Voglio tornare a casa vivo'

'THINK!'
'PENSACI !'

'Is it worth it?'
'Ne vale la pena ?'


Hope it was worth it.
