3 for me as well. 1 or 5 will work in a pinch.

I think 3 looks pretty cool too. Sci-fi pulp. Sorta like PS2!

It might be messier, but potentially more productive, to cobble something together collaboratively as we have been doing.

Fonts: I like 2, 4 (only if it was in italic) and 5 (lower case only), but 9 sticks out to me a little too.
Rizlar + cooper: The comma does not want to be there. It looks goofy, and the original RPS logo doesnt have one. It offsets the last character too much and takes the entire logo out of line. This is fairly important imo.. it screws up the alignment to no end....
Im also not sure about having text in the logo itself. Sure we have an RPS name tag for use on bigger images, but the 'lgoo' itself should be just imagery that represents us... which is why I have been pushing the giraffe.
Cooper: your last variants on mine were quite nice. In particular I like:
This design is good, but the giraffe could do with being a little more distinct? idk...
This design is the one I would choose if we have to have text. Combining the giraffe AND text doesnt work in your examples imo... Perhaps if you had the one above, but with the RPS text centered like in the one below and in the same colour as the background.
For both designs, i would seriously make the background lighter.. I like it as is, but it might look a little nicer if the purple was slightly brighter.
Its going in the right direction though... I really like the colours and texture used in these last two, so could we work from these?
These colours would transfer very nicely into rizlars background design, even using the lighter green to a degree. In my mind, the logo is fairly final ^.... the only issue I can see, is the font used for the outfit title. I would propose that if we are to choose from each, we see how each looks in the light green used in your designs ^. This colour would offset nicely from the background if used on the actual site/youtube background, but also allow the title to tile with the circles. One thing I didnt like about rizlars design is that the RPS title was on its own to the right. It needs to be included in the pattern and to the left.
Rizlar, I totally understand your "nazi" nature with the logo, and its exactly the same reason I am being a bitch about making sure we get it right too.. Im very picky myself, especially with graphics.

This is nice! It really reminds me of something, I can't quite think what it is though. I think it might be something Nike did with their football stuff? Anyway, the only think I would say about it that it doesn't necessarily say anything about us. I don't know if that's important - there's not much you can project in such a small space - but at least you could pick up the Vanu 'vibe' on the current design.
To be honest, if you're looking to develop the eclipse thing I did it may be better for someone else with a bit more finesse to try it. I played around with that for quite a while to end up with that; I'm not sure where else I could take it. If you have any ideas I can at least try, but someone with more experience would most likely pull it off better than I could!
For the record, I like fonts 5 and 7 [edit:both in caps]. They're easy to read, easily relatable back to the original RPS logo but both have the nice sci-fi edge we're looking for! Can't decide which I like better...

I still feel that laying out what we want in specific detail, then producing lots and lots (and lots) of different barebones ideas to mull over, before deciding exactly what to make and how best to make it, will ultimately net us much better results.

I'm fairly ambivalent about commas. I put it in because I thought / assumed the rock paper shotgun logo had one. With or without is fine by me.
As for a design brief. My thinking is that if we can get a logo, why not a logo, in addition to the rps-esque name & tagline? As long as they work together, that should be fine.
That being said, the only outfit logo I recognise that does not include a tag or name in it is The Sentinels. Which they use a lot (esp forum sigs) and have had for ages. And there's loads of them, so it gets everywhere. This shouldn't put us off a logo, but it means it should be a) pretty disctinctive and b) fairly simple so it's not just a bunch of ugly clutter like some of those logos...
I'll draft a brief tomorrow / later tonight. We can then work on a draft until we have something we can start moving with & working what we do have so it aims towards the brief.Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

Trouble is, the black version, the head gets lost in the purple somewhat.. I think what I suggested with the light head, but a dark colours "RPS" would work wonders.. Cooper, if you have a moment, could you knock up my idea? Shouldnt be difficult if you have the source still.
On another note, yes I agree with you cooper, we should have a distinctive "logo". That is to say, a logo in every sense of the word... No (long) text... at most an abbreviation such as RPS... but this isnt actually necessary... The logo compliments the tagline logo (rock paper shotgun blah blah).
In terms of this "vote"; I dont think its necessary to vote on it. We have the ideas, all we need now is to decide on one. As I said, it would be great if you could try my idea of slightly mixing up your take on my design as stated above. If possible, could you send me the source/composition files for the last logo you made ^, so that I could play around with it a little?

Put together a quick one that has a bit more comic value...
BTW: Been using 3 "Faktos" for these tags.
Firstly it looks like "RPS" whereas 5 and 7 look like "APS"
Secondly it has a native square bracket which 8, 6 and 7 lack.
HNkami (which for me is drawn with faktos for best) is native italics and has a normal, round bracket which is basically square. That's a possibility.
I think we can probably reduce the font chocies down to "HNkami" (6) and "Faktos" (3) based upon range of characters, style, readability etc. I would probably go for Faktos because of aforementioned worries about the lowercase e, i and s letters which drop below the base line and just look weird because of that.
Edit2: BTW the Purple square, turqiose circle, black giraffe and white RPS tag could work with a significant lightening of the purple... Will have a stab
Edit 4: Realised that's not what Basic Paul asked. Check below...
The purple is a random selection via hue/lightness, it's not meant to be final but rather an indication of a different possibility.

This one is closest to what I asked to see, though I meant to have the RPS tag in the very center of the circle. For the purposes of logo, it may also be worth not using italics on RPS, because it screws up the already symmetrical nature.
I had meant to only lighten the background a tiny bit, because I actually like it dark. It would be worth seeing a few variations in colour for the background, but I do like both the dark and light.. somewhere in between could work too.
This is what Eclectic asked for. I dont think it works particularly well this way, because the RPS is harder to see. Again, it might look better if the RPS wasnt italic.
I like all three in this style, and the italic rps works in this sense. My only issue with it, is that I REALLY HATE the tongue.... the image would be almost perfect without that damn tongue. Also, I prefer it facing right... which means it would probably be good to have all of the characters on the background face right.
If you could make the last one here^ without the tongue (in the purple and black), Ill use this. The addition of the giraffe spots really adds to the imagery. Im not sure on either purple or clear.. probably purple, especially when we have it on black.
Actually, if you could also make the same as above but with the background from below (also without tongue ), so that we have three background variations on it.. that would be fantastic.
Again, good moves forward... not only for colours, but for design and texture. These last few are pretty.
One thing though: dont much like the goofy giraffe version :P
EDIT: When we finalise which stuff we are going for, it would be a brilliant idea if we could put them in a shared repository for those of us that need them. It would be very useful to have access to the component parts so that its possible to play around with elements, or use the particular elements elsewhere for related things.
I did previously suggest dropbox, as we can set up a shared folder for that.
The backgrounds and logos could be easily shared... the photoshop document files for example, would be a really useful resource.

OOOOH, yes. I love those BasicPauly. The big one and the small one with white giraffe and black text are awesome.

I personally don't like having [RPS] stamped over the logos.
While logo and words can work as a combination, I don't think it does in this case.

I agree with the last three posters. I like the logo with the head-on giraffe head best, I like the vague similarity to the VS logo. White-on-green-on-purple is my favourite colour scheme so far. Like this one, but without the text:
I suppose it could be hard to distinguish if we were to get an in-game armour decal at some point though, so maybe the black giraffe head would be better for that purpose.
