Hope you don’t mind some criticism.
are far too many
colors in your logo. If someone was going to print
it in white on black
or black on white, it won’t come out very well at
Quite honestly, this is the reason I chose to have a
seperate black&white vs. color version of the logo. I
felt that having Red Green and Blue were important as
so much of SDL deal with video which is represented as
composites of these colors. While I didn’t feel
either the purple or the sky-blue background were
specifically necessary, I felt they complemented the
RGB theme well…
version with just the letters is hard to identify as
being SDL and not SLD
as Bill noted.
Agreed… I haven’t played with moving the word
"Simple" yet, but I think it will solve this problem.
As I provided the .xcf file, I welcome anyone
interested to play with this.
Third, the horizontal bars, while
looking at the greyscale images, don’t look very
good in the color ones.
Hmm… I did look at it both with and without the
horizontal bars and thought the geometric shapes
looked too plain without them… I left them in for
primarily two reasons.
- I wanted them visable to proivide some degree of
continuity between the color and the black&white
versions of the images
- I thought (as they are 18% opaque) they provided a
subtle and interesting texture to the otherwise simple
boring geometric shapes. (i.e. like the AT&T logo)
Using primitive shapes is a very good idea for
something like SDL though.
Thanks… Bare in mind I am by no means an a real
artist… I just threw this togeather as a concept and
was hoping to hear some feedback… I don’t have much
time to work on this, so I encourage anyone to play
with the .xcf I created, or just play with the concept
One thing I WOULD like to see with this logo is to
see the lettes S,D, and L cast shadows onto their
respective shapes that do not make the shapes look
flat… (While I have faked effects like this before,
I believe the effect would be much more profound if
done correctly in a 3D modeling program.)
As I mentioned above, my schedule is very limiting at
the moment. If anyone wants to take this concept and
run with it, please do!
