Currently, community content is loosely branded as 'Stack Gaming'. And we have a blue heart logo based on the soon-to-be-(almost)-extinct red pixel heart. With the Arqade rebrand, should we come up with a new name and logo for our community content?

  • I can't find any decent synonyms for Arcade, but I think something that ties in would be nice, e.g. Insert Coin. – fredley Jun 11 '12 at 20:30

Drawing from the creative spark of @GnomeSlice, here is another logo concept.

ARRRRRRRQAde ARQADE2 Arqade3

Here is the same version as the above, but cropped and without the light-blue shadow (as per @GnomeSlicE and @James suggestions).

Arqade3a

One SVG and the other SVG in case you want to mess around with them. Here is the SVG for the third one. Here is the cropped SVG without the light-blue "shadow" bit.

Here is an archived zip of the final .ai file and the fonts for the logo.

Let me know if you want me to make any changes (different size, orientation, etc.) or need anything else. Or if there are any areas that need improvement.

  • I might post the ones you took the basic idea from at some point, but this is pretty much better in every way, nice work. – GnomeSlice Jun 19 '12 at 15:24
  • I hate the blurry text in the 2nd and particularly 3rd one. Really like the 4th one though. – Sterno Jul 5 '12 at 16:08

If we do decide to do this, please remember our Facebook page is permanently stuck as https://www.facebook.com/StackGaming, the youtube channel cannot be changed from GamingSE and our email will always be StackGaming@gmail.com amongst other things.

I also don't think this is necessary seeing as this is still the gaming site for Stack exchange.

  • Steam is also stuck. – badp Jun 11 '12 at 21:52
  • Thats a damn shame. But maybe we should update the logos? – Fredy31 Jun 11 '12 at 23:25

    We can always make another youtube channel, and facebook page is we have to. I think it's in our best interests to have something that actually matches the name of the site, and people aren't going to immediately know what 'gaming SE' or 'stackgaming' refer to, I don't think. – GnomeSlice Jun 12 '12 at 1:37

    I was of the same opinion, but merging everything is gonna be a pain. But hey, better do it right now than wait! I also suggest we get the ArqadeCommunity handle on twitter right now. – Fredy31 Jun 12 '12 at 2:25
  • @Fredy31 Done so for if we decide to change. – Ronan Jun 12 '12 at 11:26
  • Do we have numbers on how much traffic those pages actually get? Being "stuck" with them is really only an issue if more than like 20 people are visiting them, which has sort of been my current impression of those sites. – Sterno Jul 5 '12 at 16:07

I think, if it's ok with SE, we should use the heart.

Anyway, I spent most of today coming up with a design for the community to use as a logo. Long story short, it turned out rather terribly.Proposed logo for the community

I've got some other ideas kicking around, but don't hold your breath.

  • Top left seems more fitting. But I would put the ar and de smaller, same size as the QA. – Fredy31 Jun 12 '12 at 2:20

    Have the text in the same perspective as the cabinet – fredley Jun 12 '12 at 8:36
