    New Forum Logos and Designs

    Hey-o!! This is Disaster86. Several times throughout my history with this texture pack I have come to a point where I had to remake our logo. Maybe because it's too small. Maybe because I didn't have the font. Who knows? Unimportant. I should have started this thread when I made the one we have now! :p

    Anyway, I was browsing through the Support Banners thread when I found Valsis's Banner design. The amazing main font used for that design is called 'Baar Sophia' and is available here for free. The tagline is made with Helvetica Light.

    So the deal is, I'm making a ton of alternate logo designs for you guys to use. They will be bigger than 350x50 pixels so you should be able to use it for other things easily.


    Full Size Logos:
    Version 1 - Soartex, Smooth Diamond

    You're officially back! Yay!

    Anyway, the actual tagline font is HelveticaLight. I'll try to find the exact one I had, but it's saved in the download as HelvLight, if that helps.

    And while the .psd is a little unorganized, I like it.

    Critique: I hate them

    The only issue I have is with the third banner. The smooth diamond looks awkwardly pasted/pixellated...Same with the fourth, actually

    I feel like the clear text does not flow with the rest of the forum/website. Remember that a logo has to be able to go across all the websites not just the forum. So it also has to work on the header for the downloads page/customizers/file server/zip-manager/etc. I like the simplicity of the one we have now, but the words could be changed. They are good banners, but I am just not feeling them right now.

    Huh. I didn't even consider comparability with other sites. Must be old age :L

    I do not like the one we have now. I think using the default skin as our icon was fairly dull to begin with. Plus, I do not know the font that was originally used, I've only ever edited the original text...

    I've added a few new ones taking those points into consideration. I have also tried and tested a small version for use on the forum header. And here is my script if you want it now! :)
