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

I REALLY like this one, I think I want to use this and add an animated A, checkmark and boingball behind it. I do some 'digital enhancement' but haven't done anything with animation since gifs...

An example of what I do (on a Mac but would love to do this on a MiSTer!)

Reviving an ancient thread here but is there an "official" logo for the MiSTer in existence now? If not then one is definitely needed right? There is some kind of logo on the PCBs etc., does a high-resolution version exist of that?

This one would be nice for 3d printing. The top of e would not need a back support.

I really like the way Racketboy's text looks in the new MiSTer article he just published. It's a couple weights of the Futura font.

Hi Everyone -- thanks to SmokeMonster for contributing to the article and for sharing :)
I'd be glad to keep working on design ideas for the logo. I'd love to help out.
Just let me know what you're liking and not liking and I can keep playing around.

I was spending a little time (like only 30 minutes) to come up with something a bit more clever last night before publication, but I was more concerned with getting the article done and a header I was happy with in the short term.

These are the five basic types of logos (there can be combinations too as some have shown in previous posts).

Designing a good logo is really difficult.
Here are some tips on where a certain logo type may be appropriate:

Here are some examples of combination logos I quickly put together:

Looking forward to seeing more possible logo designs!

I like the font in racketboy's MiSTer word. What's the font name? Or you draw it yourself?
