    You could play with the "Rock" part, use guitars, rock horns?, Speakers? - You guys get better music anyhow.

    Also I'd start with the NC main logo and doctor it - that way you fit into the game style better. You could make that "egale head" bit into a dead giraffe quite easily and replace the star in the middle with crossed jackhammer and guitar. I started making a mock up but my Gimp-Fu is weak and I'm going to bed instead.

    I was thinking of something like this as a concept but with a Vanguard, Reavers and a drop pod in the place of the conventional vehicles in the emblem. And also something about big game hunting..

    So I tried iterating on some of the great ideas mentioned in this thread and the attached is what I came up with.

    I really liked Bobbinboots Aegis Shield idea but I reckoned it was a bit too much for this already busy logo.
    I also tried Grible's idea of a guitar but it just kind of got in the way of the shotgun and mag cutter.

    I kind of ran out of time on this so the rock is a little perfunctory but I think it more or less works.

    What do you all think?
    Too much/too complicated?

    (This was a quick export for test purposes but the original source is a vector image so I can do other versions of different sizes easy enough.)

    Love Evanzan's. The shotgun makes it a bit busy, think just the Magcutter is enough...

    There are some good ideas floating around! Evanzan: if we roll with that giraffe design is it possible to have the giraffe's head pointing more to the right, like it's splayed out across the floor?

    Just for the hell of it, as it's not even a logo - done as GIMP practice as I've not used it in ages:

    Evanzan's and eltdown's submissions made me laugh. I really like Evanzan's play on the usual NC logo. Just three things, because it's really easy to be a critic:

    1) Agree with Cooper the shotgun makes it a bit too busy, just the magcutter would be good
    2) Agree with eltdown that the giraffe head -might- look better pointing right (but it might elongate the picture a bit too much)
    3) Perhaps have the characters RTRS coming down in a line just above the giraffe's head - preferably in a 3d-looking font / fancy font with nice added stylings

    Just suggestions, but it looks really good as it is anyway, brilliant job.

    For a test purpose it's fucking awesome, I had to supress my laugh but got was giggling enough to get teary eyed

    I'd suggest that while Evanzan's got the right idea, it needs to be more stylized, more of a logo. Right now it's more of a nice drawing, that would lack clarity as a logo.

    Thanks for all the feedback, everyone.
    I'll do some alternate versions later on and post them for comments.

    Yeah, I know what you mean.
    I'm a bit loathe to remove it as it is a vital part of the Rock Traitor Shotgun triad, however, might have to bite the bullet and simplify things.
    If I remove the shotgun, I'll take out the rock too and make it more of an altered NC logo with mag-cutter.

    Sorry, not entirely sure what you mean.
    Do you want the head pointing more to the right than down as it is currently?
    If so, will give it a try.
    (Will have to tweak the original Vanu head shape a bit so we'll see if I manage!)

    I can try adding in the 'RTRS' letters though not sure if it is really needed.

    Does anyone have strong opinions on fonts?
    Should I just steal the RPS (VS) font (which I gather is Faktos)?

    I think partly simplification (remove rock/shotgun) will help here although I can try to make it a little less cartoony. Not sure I want to go quite as stylised as the Vanu logo though.

    EDIT:

    Okay, a draft of some new versions based on the comments.
    Any further thoughts?

    EDIT 2:

    Okay, attached image is rubbish.
    Try this link for a larger version.

    EDIT 3:

    And some embellishments to the basic logo based on local feedback.
    (More blood, tried for tongue hanging out.)
    Attached or via this link.

    Okay, sorry, I'll stop updating this post now! :-/

    What I would suggest is having a more cleanly cut knife, and maybe slightly larger sticking out top left to offset from the giraffe bottom right. (im thinking along the lines of the BF3 premium knife, ACB, if anybody has seen that?).

    I like variant B, with no tongue and no text.

    Love the use of our logos giraffe though, and the overall roundel style with simple colours.

    Its suitably different, yet still feels RPS.

    Nice job Evanzan.

    I really like variant A. Don't think you need to get rid of the shotty and rock, perhaps make the magcutter a bit bigger like Pauly suggests, so it breaks out of the border like the shotty?

    Awesome job, you are putting our logo to shame! Once again I leave this thread, never to return.

    Oh wow, I did indeed post a picture here! Waffly also posted a blue and yellow zebcorn somewhere - we could try to do something with that as well. Because zebcorns.

    Found it (although the linework needs... cleaning up a bit): http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/foru...l=1#post347386

    Freedom unicorn was a MS paintjob, not my finest work.

    The idea is there, that's what matters. I was thinking along the lines of the heraldry-type unicorn but with zebra skin converted to blue and yellow. Or something.

    Would that be treading on MCY's style / camo choice a little?

    Edit: No, MCY have a really clever logo that has all the letters of their outfit tag in it, much like the Toyota logo:

    What you need is something like this:


    But with more zebra.
