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

I've not commented previously since I have little to contribute. Agree that the cyan needs toned down a bit, generally on colour are we thinking solid block colour like currently or would there be highlighting to add?
I prefer the block colour if it ends up being a decal but for website use etc it might benefit from a bit of shadow/highlight.
I'm also much more ok being associated with a drug addled manic depressive artist than the Nazis! I have no opinion on lips.

Yes, I too really like Rizlar's new version. Spots are nice and unique. The lip looks fine this way too, might prefer the sharper one just a little bit more though.
Here it is on the good ol' galaxy (contrast has been reduced slightly in order to make it fit more with the general lighting of the scene):
Looks great, and I think I prefer it with the cyan as background and the teal/green for the Vanu logo. Fits nicely with the teal/green highlights on the galaxy, and the contrast of the dark purple giraffe head on the lively cyan is excellent. To me it says - Rest assured, RPS is bringing the laser disco to you!

Looks really good! Though I still wonder if the cyan shouldn't be a lighter shade of the greenish colour instead. Not sure how that works with the spots on the neck though...
Anyway, my final niggle with this is that I'd like to have the bottom spike be as spiky as the others, and not quite so rough towards the top (underneath the chin of the 'raffe).
Good job everyone!

About those projections onto vehicles. Is that a feature actually planned for a GU at some point or is it something the devs casually said might happen one day? Given that they're only just fixing the queue issues with GU8 I wonder how soon wed see the logo on the field.

Outfit decals is something that has been hinted at on the Roadmap, I believe. Can't recall if it's still there, though. Can't even check from work.

Thought I saw it on there. Lots of exciting things there, if I recall. Does it still only go to June?
25-04-2013, 06:08 PM #308
They have it scheduled to June and then they have a shedload of unscheduled stuff as well; although a lot of that does seem to be 'this was in the roadmap but now it's here because of the Battle Flow stuff we're changing'.

Damn, I'm looking at that picture and I wanna fly that awesome Purple Giraffe Galaxy right now.
Flying Giraffe Squadron ftw ! June seems way too far though T_T

Im currently making a few diff colour variants, but I spotted an alternative spike type that Rizlar hasnt shown us. The spikes are pointy, but slightly shorter:
I also edited out that little strange bit sticking up from the bottom prong.

Ok, I have put together the most recent version (most pointy) in colours that have previously been discussed and have been (somewhat) popular. Ive probably missed some, but I chose a few that I thought were quite well composed in various ranges. Click to make bigger.

Sorry if there is some issue with the thumbnails displaying.. I keep getting some of them showing up as links rather than images? Not sure why, but just click the link, or let me know if it doesnt work and ill try and re upload.
They are all ok, but im not a fan of 10 or 12. 11 has the cyan and green the wrong way round I think.

Cheers Pauly, that's a lot of giraffes! They all seem to be loading fine for me.
The shorter points were in case people didn't like them longer, but the line coming off the lower point that you erased was deliberate... :O

That looked really nice, in fact!

If you're still accepting contributions, I have a rough idea for a logo.
I'll definitely need to tweak the colours and give it some more polish, but I like the idea of a segmented giraffe head.
What does everyone think? Does the second one look like I tried too hard to force the Vanu symbol in there?
25-04-2013, 11:44 PM #318
I dont think we should edit the tips any further, because I like how rough edged and frayed they are as it really adds to the effect.
They look pretty cool though, and with refinement im sure they would have made a great alternative. Very transformers-ey!
On the left we have the Auto-raffes, and on the right the Decepti-raffes. :P

Hrm yeah bananaraffe is my favourite. Otherwise 5 or 6 sort of works for me. Never was a huge fan of cyan.
