Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar New Site Logo? Fri 18th Feb 2011 11:21am

Category: fighunter.com

Kongregate have agreed to sponsored Clarence's Big Chance, and I'm adding sponsor branding and stuff to the game at the moment - all that's left to do before uploading it for release - but since the game's in a pixelated style completely with no vector graphics anywhere, my old logo - the one with the spinning green circle and little image of an actual fig fruit, seemed out of place on the title screen.

As a result, I tried drawing a pixelated version of it, but while doing so I wondered what it might be like to have a bit of a change, a redesign. I've had the other for ages, after all, and a change of pace might be interesting.
There was also the issue of the other one's dimensions; it's hard to align it with other logos since it's an awkward shape.

So I've come up with something new, and I'd like to know what people think!



Here's the first, main version that I came up with. Obviously it uses the Fig elemental glyph rather than an actual fig as its icon; perhaps more stylish, sleek, and all that kind of stuff.
It's fairly dark and reminds me of grapes and wine and royalty, it seems.
Seems odd without any green, but perhaps the green never truly fit with the logo anyway.
The site's colours have always been purple, brown and orange, but not green, so this one's more true to that.



But does it look better with a brighter outline? I just don't know.


Comments will be appreciated.
For the moment I've changed the normal logo on the site to the new one, but I might change it back to the animated one later.



EDIT: I'll keep the first one. The more I look at it, the more I like it. Change is always off-putting simply because it is change, but eventually this logo will become as associated with the site as the old one was.

EDIT AGAIN: I already said I've decided on the first one...

New logo was the first thing I noticed coming to the site, thank you for not choosing the green outline... *Gaaah! My eyes! Even so, I think the new logo doesn't really fit as well with "fighunter." I understand the "fig" element, but I thought that the fig itself was more classy and unique.

Definitely agree with your choice pseudo, first suits your style the best. It's not unseen though to have various logos which have the same basic idea but with different styles depending on where it has to fit (the first one that comes to mind is the Armor Games one, but i'm sure there are others). So might not be a bad idea to keep the old one ready for specific occasions or games for which it could still be suited.

I think it might be a good idea to change the logo 'temporarily' for certain events (I.E.: Christmas, New Year, maybe new game?), if you know what I mean. Also, I think that it was a good choice to choose the darker outlined one, Or else there'd be too much contrast. Contrast! Ow, my eyes!

I've been reading these comments and it seems to be a common theme: Most people liked the original one that moved, but think that change can be good. That being said, the one with the darker outline is generally considered better than the green one, but most people think that the green would work better if it were darker.

Taking all these into account, perhaps it would be good to make a version of the second one with a darker green, likely one that would compliment things such as DELIVERANCE, which if you as me, had a wonderful colour scheme that was not offensive to the eyes, and it was rather pleasant. A dark green, a YALORT green, could go quite well with this new logo. I do rather like the dark green with somewhat lighter, but still dark, green. Black and green go good together, but only if you want them to. ;D

Although it looks better without the green outline I think if you changed the colour of the outline the second one would be more suitable. The first one looks better because it suits the themed colours of the site. Brown and purple. But if for instance you were using the logo in one of the raider games, which were mostly green, the second one with perhaps a slightly darker shade would be more suitable. Of course as a developer you probably already know this in much more detail then myself but simply giving my opinion.

The original logo looked better, but if you really want pixel art, go with the first one. the green seems a bit out of place.

CBC is going to be out soon? Awesome!

Anyways, yeah I like the new logo better than the old one. I'm just a sucker for pixel art I suppose.

I personally liked the old one. I believe it is pixelated enough and reallylooked brighter and more inviting. Change might jst be hard for me and maybe a change of pace is nice, but just miss the old one

I think you'd be better off making the logo normally but having it pixelated simply for CBC and other pixelated games. It would fit into the game without ruining it other places. So I'd say vector normally, but pixelated in pixelated games.
