Please post as answers below, your logo proposals for this site.
- Original artwork only.
- You need to have a copy of your submission in a vector format.
Here's a version of the other with a longer left leg (as suggested by EricSchaefer) and one with the longer left leg and a thicker paddle (as suggested by DavRob60):
I have an idea for the text that I want to try, but I have to find a font for it first. Let me know what you think about these (whether you like the longer leg or the thicker paddle) and I'll see what I can do about finding a font for my other idea.
First, I really like the Stack Overflow logo. it's small, it's square...
So I thought of something inspired of pong, but my graphical talent are somewhat limited.
The "paddle" should then be in the bottom and a ball "bounce" like the stack element of the Stack Overflow logo. We could also add a trail to the ball.
Update : I made a quick concept image. It's not vectorial, the color are is not exactly what I want and the alignment of the balls is off. So it should be redone by someone with real graphical skill. But the idea is there. The balls trail may also be replaced with a curved doted line...
and here Michael Herold concept.
I was thinking of doing something along the lines of an alien from Space Invaders, but then realized that is the Video Games Live logo.
What other old games are there that have a well-known trope?
Edit: As per DavRob60's comment, here's a mockup of a logo with the Space Invaders ship. I thought I'd add it to this answer, but if we want this answer to be a discussion for my question, I can post it in another answer.
I like the idea of using a simple retro gaming style icon - the Pong and Space Invaders are good ones. In a similar vein...
I'm sure someone more arty than myself could make more suitable versions!
I like the idea of a joystick. Maybe a joystick placed in front of a screen? That could be rendered quite stylistically to keep it similar to the stackoverflow logo.
My idea is basically a finger frantically pressing a button again and again.
I'll try to make it a bit more stylish, help from others will be welcome.
