Of course, there's an old saying: why draw something yourself, when Griff's already done it so much better? ;)

Another logo idea

Post by Judex » Tue Apr 06, 2010 7:21 pm

Hi there - I'm putting a new logo idea up on my facebook group ('Oolite! even better than the real thing') - you could go and see it there
I'm not allowed to post images here yet as I just registered to post the pic!

You need to post the pictures somewhere else like Flick'r or Photobucket and then link to them from the forum.

Ooh, I like that. Good as an icon, cos the coriolis is distinctive, and the writing appears if the image is big enough. I don't like the font though. Should be bolder. Bolder, I say!!

I suggest the crumpled remains of a Cobra be added to the docking bay.

Very nice suggestions all round. :)
Even got two new creative members out of it!

My suggestion would have been either almost identical to Judex's or a variation on the classical design, but with a different animal, I like a dragonfly. Or a different posture such as a falcon diving downwards seen from its back...(tail up, head down and wings folded in a 30degree V upwards.

Using a single ship as an icon would have been appropriate for ELITE, but since then almost every elite clone, derative or tribute has had the possibility for owning other ships.
For Oolite the focus must be on progress of computing possibilities, (with a big glob of nostalgia.)

Using an icon too similar to ELITE's, though I like it very much, might incur the wrath of the Braben.

Commander Matt's logo design 1

Don't know when the choice will be made – it's in the lap of the gods (or the devs, if there's a difference ...)

Nice design, btw!

(Edit: sorry, made an arse of the linking to Twitpic ... I've uploaded a copy to ImageShack and made it RGB instead of CMYK, which cuts down the size a bit.)
