I, personally, would be willing to submit a logo design to fit a brief.

[VS] We need a logo. Help decide & contribute.
[RPS] Needs a logo
A number of us have thrown together some ideas, all of which are rough sketches. We need to decide which one to go forward with so we can work it up into somwething useable across the [RPS] websites (and for eventual custom decal).
To this end, I've put the logos that have come out of the YouTube website thread here for voting. Note: The vote is largely to get a discussion going, rather than a decision making process. I'd rather not have a vote, but the amount of engagement in the YouTube thread is limited to a very few outfit members. This way more people might at least engage somewhat...
IMPORTANT NOTE: All submissions for voting are not final. Especially here are the colours. Logo 4, for example, has been hashed out in a wide variety of different colour schemes. Select form for now.
As well as voting:
Please also get involved in the discussion. The more people batting about ideas the better.
Please also submit "taglines"
Similar to "PC GAMING SINCE 1873" the RPS logo will come with taglines. We've gathered a few, which are below. Add you own and I will include them on the website header rotation (and wherever else it appears).
I'm very open to the idea of drawing up a design brief and accepting submissions in a more formal manner. The reason I have not done this before is because of the very small number of people who were engaging in the logo design process. If you would, personally, be willing to put forward a logo to meet a brief, please vote as such. If the level of interest in designing the logo is greater than I realised, I will go that route.

For the record, we have decided upon Faktos as the outfit font:
The font is free from the excellent dafont:
Suggested (possible) taglines:
"Galxy dropping harder than Skrillex"
"Galaxy drops since 2873"
"Purple Spandex since 2873"
"Lasher Spam since 1873"
"Vanu Disco since 1873"
"Laser Shoots Since 2873"
"Pew Pew Since 2873"
"Shooting Men since 2873"
"Liberation through Science™ since 2873"
"Drinking the Kool Aid since 2873"
Lore nuts can note that 2873 fits nicely in the PS2 timeline:

Logo 8 by the way

"Giraffes in spandex since 2873 - and in the game"
Logo 8 by a long shot for me, maybe you could give it lens flare, too.
Would it be feasible to have the tagline change daily, or whenever you log in it selects it from a list? Because I would imagine "Fuck you, Ridebird, since 2873" would eventually get old.

If there is a skrillex tagline I will galaxy drop you all in to a goddamn fire pit.

My favourite logo is number 4, but 3 and 8 are also good candidates.
The logo should be simple and distinct, easy to recognize. Especially if it is going to be used for player and vehicle decals later on. I feel the detail in logos 1, 2, 3 and 7 might have difficulties with this.
Although logo 8 looks nice, I think it is too similar to the one used by Azure Twilight.
Some tagline suggestions:
"Laser disco since 2873"
"Laser shows since 2873"
"Laser shows since 1873"
"Laser spam since 2873"
"Laser science since 2873"
"Giraffe camo since 1873"

oh dear. that is indeed quite similar to AT's logo. I'd recommend removing 8 pending an alternate design using the theme. I dont think it'd be good to have a similar (not to say identical) logo to AT. While removal would be unfortunate, the other entries are definitely better choices considering the situation.

"Galxy dropping harder than Skrillex" - LOVE IT!
Logo nr... gosh, i liked them all...You need me again, sweet lips?

Definitely number 4, clear and distinct. Not sure about number 8, a little abstract for an eventual decal and FAR to similar to that other outfit.

Personally, I really hate the idea of putting the logo choice down to a poll. I think we were great going in the direction that we had decided on and think that this is a step backwards.
Im sticking with number 2, The Rizlar design with texture.. Its the best logo in terms of colours, composition, texture and simplicity regardless. Weirdly, im voting 2 rather than number 4, which is my composition, but I like both.. The thing is that number 2 was an evolution of the concepts from number 4 and another design on rizlars proposed background.. which is why I like it.
Rather, Id like to just hear more about what people like about each and every design, so that we could refine it, rather than just have an idea of what some people like... Some kind of survey "write x about a b c" would be better.
Tagline: Purple Spandex since 2873.

Love the logos, they are all all good.
My tagline submission
"Giraffe to do that?"
06-04-2013, 12:05 AM #16
I can't believe we haven't submitted:
Having a giraffe since 1873.
06-04-2013, 12:10 AM #17
4 for me. Also, I love Laldy's "Grazing Auraxis since 2873", that's funny and fairly subtle.

Woops, accidently voted for 4 when I probably should have hit 'willing to submit to design brief'. 4 and 8 have a lot of similarities, the giraffe head in circle concept was really what I was voting for, crescent moon or ring (as in the VS logo) behind the head could be good.
ps. for the record, no.2 wasn't my design, but does include a giraffe from my background idea. >.<
pps. sketched out a better giraffe for you to vectorise Coop, but haven't got round to scanning it in. Looks like it might be better to hold off tho, now that we are deciding for good on a design

But the thread was attracting too little attention. I'd rather "this not that" than no input at all.
I would prefer it if people actually talked about the submissions, not just voted...
Also, it's not being put to the vote. I am perfectly willing to ignore whatever comes out top here and just go for whatever.Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY
