Logo Challange

Post by maci » 22 Mar 2005, 22:01

Hi everyone!

We are thinking of changing the TMW logo.

Now your help is needed!

We want YOU to design a nice logo for The Mana World and we will use the best one for the game.

Ha ?

Isn't that a challenge for you ??

Wouldn't it be nice to become a part of The Mana World??

Try your best and post your work here so everyone can see it and we can decide :)

greetings

The TMW Team

I would reccommend something which has the following properties:
- Simple
- Draws attention (using contrasting colours, different patterns etc.)
- Looks great
- Fits purpose/context

People who wish to contribute their titles may want to review (commercial) game titles. Have a look at the various design patterns and see what will fit The Mana World most.
eg.
Ultima
Quake
Neverwinter Nights
Secret of Mana
etc.

My idea is to have a logo that represent the game, so probably the image of a globe, with a greenish aura around it which is mana. Then a great looking text, but still no ide where to place it...
Having also an animated version to show on the main page with the world spinning and the aura glowing could be cool, if I have time I'll try to create a sample or if someone wants to :wink:

Yeah good effect, but I was thinking about something a little more realistic :arrow:

Hmm I like that one too, even though I agree with Elven maybe we could make it a bit more realistic. Next to that I'd propose a change in direction:

And maybe in position:

Of course both variants could be used where appropriate.

I like Elven's. Bjorn's reminds me a bit too much of FF7. :D

So what does the systems coordinator actually do? My job is to take your ideas for TMW and build them into working aspects of gameplay that can be implemented by the artists and programmers. If there's anything you think we can do better or differently, let me know.

Elven, I think the thinner ring looks a lot better, though the brightness of the planet in the second image is a bit better. I still have a problem with the blurry edge of the planet.

Kyokai, I never played FF7 and don't know its logo. Anyway, I was just doing some small modifications to i's logo.
