Here it is again at slightly less severe angle. I've included a two tone and a three tone version.

I like it. Also, could you try saving them as PNG instead of JPG so that there are no compression artifacts? It would make them look much nicer.

I also edited high contrast versions for these:

2-tone:


3-tone:

In my personal opinion the three tone is more aesthetically pleasing.

Ah I went for JPG the second time to make it easier on the loading times, been doing a lot of web development recently so it's sort of stuck in my head.

High contrast versions look good, think it may be time to consider colours and if we're gonna be using gradients, patterns, glow effects etc.

That said, suggestions on the design are still welcome (Or even entirely new designs, might be an idea to have a few available to choose from).

Well with this type of graphic PNG will be just as fast if not faster than JPG.

I've been thinking about that as well. Haven't tried messing with it much yet though.

Agreed, it'd be nice to have a lot of designs to look at.

I'm going to try my own version of DrPeroxide's design. I'll also see if I can come up with my own unique design. I'm just happy to see this thread is up and running again. smile

Me too. It seems like the whole forum has come alive these past couple of days, and there's also a lot of old faces turning up again, which is awesome because I miss the old crowd smile The pre-0.96 days were the best the forum has seen IMO. </nostalgia>

......I registered before .96.... ..... ..................

This may be a bit too complex for the logo, but I like this idea and think I may be able to do more with it (tomorrow (EDIT 3: Well, apparently not tomorrow)).

EDIT: It's a galaxy shape, and the idea is that a grid represents simulation... it needs work, but the idea is good (I think).

Edit #2 I realize it's "S" shaped- I only realized it after I created the shape, and figured it doesn't do the logo any harm.

Okay, so.... I made a few changes. How about this?

It's much simpler- we don't even need the grid. It's a galaxy (barred spiral).

When we think of outer space, most of us think of a black sky full of stars. The shape of a galaxy represents the fact that SE is a much closer look at the night sky than you will ever get in an observatory.

Detailed decorative images can incorporate grid designs or other complex imagery within the logo.

By itself it's really lacking, it just doesn't say enough. But I think this could be a good basis for something. I think I'll play with this a bit.

Here is a desktop icon, for those who hate the default version of it. Found this to be the most appropriate thread.

A new SE logo example made by a designer that goes by the name AthaxDesigns (look at https://www.facebook.com/AthaxProductions ). Submit your opinion about this logo.

I like the planet, but I dislike the font face and color.

It's not bad, but it lacks dynamic and imagination in its colors, lettering, and symbolism.

Since some of you guys wanted some colours, I took the time to colour it. smile
Any suggestions on what colours/font I should use instead?
