so, i'm in the progress of starting a company, where i sell and rent game servers, and i want to have a name for the website that describes the point of the site, but also attracts gamers. the servers will be using Cloud, which has a lot of advangetes, then i came up with the name : Game Cloud, and made this quick logo in photoshop [IMG]http://i55.tinypic.com/w1s4cj.png[/IMG] but I probably wouldn't click on that logo, if i wanted an AWESOME game server, so if anyone has some ideas to both the name and some design tips to the logo, i would be thankful :) thx in adv.
I'm going in to Photoshop right now and going to see what I can do. [editline]7th September 2011[/editline] I came up with a simple design, I can go into deeper details if you want to. [IMG]http://i56.tinypic.com/107tes6.png[/IMG]

[IMG]http://i56.tinypic.com/107tes6.png[/IMG][/QUOTE] i like it, the design and all. but what im really looking for, is some more modern, sharp edged (basically, less fluffy clouds, and more cool electronic 3d-ish gaming computers'n'stuff logo)
Working on a logo, I'll report back soon. [editline]7th September 2011[/editline] Got it! [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/cM4tx.png[/IMG] I would say that appeals to gamers.

[QUOTE=McNab;32174095]I feel the text is missing something.[/QUOTE] Not..particularly...descriptive...

[QUOTE=D3TBS;32182308]i got this one. its a rough sketch [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/rn5OO.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE] Not too big on the letters going into the cloud underline. Maybe hide that by making the cloud black?

[QUOTE=MrWhite;32185448]Not too big on the letters going into the cloud underline. Maybe hide that by making the cloud black?[/QUOTE] im going to adjust the cloud thing if he chooses mine. the stroke is too thick in the left side which adds too much weight and yeah everything black
[QUOTE=D3TBS;32188154]im going to adjust the cloud thing if he chooses mine. the stroke is too thick in the left side which adds too much weight and yeah everything black[/QUOTE] Good to hear. Maybe you could even taper off theleft side line about half-way up like you did the other end on the cloud. [editline]8th September 2011[/editline] Also, could I ask what font you're using? It's so clean.

Even got your two way arrow representing and illustrating the clouds functionality and usage, and made your arrow separation represent pixels/bits. Works very well in black and white. You've figured it all out haven't you?

However, I like to think I have a decent grasp on branding, I've been doing it for a while now. Anyways, thanks for your comments. [QUOTE=cccritical;32190125]fucking elegant, but out of the corner of my eye it looks a little bit like a mushroom cloud[/QUOTE] Well, you know, a mushroom cloud is kind of cool. (I totally see where you are coming from though). Improved readability on font at small sizes, and showing some other colours.

Shape tool then fill with brush? Pen? Love the sharpness of it!
[IMG]http://puu.sh/5nGY[/IMG] First time posting some graphic design on FP, there's probably better fonts available for the idea, and I could execute it better. The cloud looks too cartoony.

[QUOTE=h0lgr;32193997]So... then why did you post?[/QUOTE] I thought it was a good concept, I would like some criticism, and graphic design is something I'm mildly interested in getting better at. And you?
[QUOTE=h0lgr;32193997]So... then why did you post?[/QUOTE] you won't go anywhere without trying right?
[img]http://puu.sh/5nKe[/img] Sorry, still having problems with Inkscape. This looks much better. Another version: [img]http://puu.sh/5nLm[/img] [editline]9th September 2011[/editline] ignore that white bit at the bottom, thx :v:
