Logo Generation Using Regional Features: A Faster R-CNN Approach to Generative Adversarial Networks

Ter-Sarkisov, A. ORCID: 0000-0002-1300-6132 and Alonso, E. ORCID: 0000-0002-3306-695X (2021). Logo Generation Using Regional Features: A Faster R-CNN Approach to Generative Adversarial Networks. Paper presented at the EAI ArtsIT 2021 – 10th EAI International Conference: ArtsIT, Interactivity & Game Creation, 2-4 Dec 2021, Karlsruhe, Germany (virtual).


In this paper we introduce Local Logo Generative Adversarial Network (LL-GAN) that uses regional features extracted from Faster R-CNN for logo generation. We demonstrate the strength of this approach by training the framework on a small style-rich dataset of real heavy metal logos to generate new ones. LL-GAN achieves Inception Score of 5.29 and Frechet Inception Distance of 223.94, improving on state-of-the-art models StyleGAN2 and Self-Attention GAN.
