New Logo

Postby Vino » Sat Jul 28, 2012 1:36 am

I've become increasingly dissatisfied with the over-the-top 80's style of logo that I came up. Saint Of Killers came up with a much better version of that original design but lately I've become convinced that the 80's cheese doesn't match with the Woo aesthetic. So, I've been trying out some alternatives. I still want 80's cheese, but less A-Team Neon and more John Woo Action. Matt got it perfect in his two concepts so I decided to go back to that. I started with this bold solid typeface and a line through the middle inspired by A Better Tomorrow.

Needs more action.

Maybe some texture and a color tint.

I like the last one best. Thoughts?

I was going to suggest a red upper, white lower version, but I realized that Max payne 2 already did that. Either way, my vote goes for the white/blue and red versions, the shade of yellow in the last one doesn't really hit me like those other two do. I think it might be interesting to see the white/blue one with a stronger shade of blue in the lower area, maybe even with a bit of shadowing. Either way, they all look like a great improvement.

Yeah so what if MP2 did it. I like it.

But I still think the red looks cool but in really striking and almost overpowering, while the yellow, while still being powerful, is more cool and easier to the eye.

Maybe if I brightened it up and made it stand out a bit more?

I like this one the most:

only the rectangle for boogaloo needs to be a little bit bigger, the edges are getting to thin now. (that's why i made the image smaller so you can see it better)

Except i REALLY think we need to drop Boogaloo. its just fucking stupid. I've refused to call it that since forever, I've just been calling it Double Action.

also, then the logo could be inverse colors - black on white Double, white on black Action or vice versa.
Fuck this shit, I'm going to bed.

I'm not liking the red logo, it's just too saturated or intense. A muted red / maroon tone might be easier to look at.

Have you considered teal and orange?

The blue-orange scheme only really works as the background of a poster, the title will pretty much always be white.

That is the second time someone has suggested that color theme. It's the equivalent of suggesting a mechanic use a wrench. Thanks, but I have more tools than that available to me.

Do high contrast red, black and white. Max Payne has it. My books have it. All kinds of stuff has it. Why? Because it looks good.

I was being facetious with teal and orange. I'm serious about that red though, it just hurts to look at.
