MiSTer Logo Design

Postby gagadagatika » Wed Sep 06, 2017 5:47 pm

Hey Guys,
I thought that we need a catchy logo for this project. So, I fired up CorelDraw and played around a bit. I am not much of an artist but I think it turned out pretty ok :D

So why not make a thread with logo ideas?

Other versions of the logo can be found here: GitHub Gist

This is the guide I used to embed the vector graphic file (svg) here with GitHub Gist: https://www.sitepoint.com/why-hosting-your-svgs-is-hard-and-how-to-beat-it/
...and here are the raw files, if someone wants to play with it:

It's actually BodoniXT :D The Font is loosely based on the modern Amiga Logo

Maybe if I make the dot as red square, it might be more apparent

But you are right, we need more ideas :D

MiSTer can be associated to some brutal man in hat silhouette, but not to ugly gradients =)

Brutal criticism here but at least honest :lol:

Do you have something particular in mind? Brutal man with a hat sounds already oddly specific.

the first logo looks ok, however it's a bit simple. Also when designing (a modern) logo, it's better to has a version which can looks great as well in black and white. A gradient can be ok, but it shouldn't be the main distinctive element.

I personally like a simple logo that is high contrast.
I found the google font Emblema One to be a nice looking retro font for the logo :P
