Logos

#1 Post by Auro-Cyanide » Tue Dec 07, 2010 8:44 am

No longer doing requests, but I do take commissions ;)

Anywho, anyone want a logo made for their game?

New design or redesign is fine. Just send along the title and subtitle if you have one as well as the tone of voice/theme/genre you would like. It would also be useful if you could attach examples of other logos you like or you would like yours to be like. If you already have a logo and just want it tidied or redesigned, send that along too. Any other details should be put down as well, like preference in colour or style.

I figured that this might be a good way for me to help some people without making a long-term commitment. I am a graphic design graduate so I should be able to do logos. Hopefully. I specialise in hand created logotypes, but I can do more traditional ones as well.

I also forgot to add, could you please identify if you would like a symbol to go with your logotype to be used as a separate object (I was thinking of Fate/Stay Night's fleur di lis) This may take a little longer and I may need a little more info on the story. If you already have a relevant symbol you are using in game, I could use that if you wanted to have it.

You may use it as a title screen if you want. If I have time I may make a prettier version to be used on the title screen and a simpler version to be used smaller scale everywhere else. So state if you want to use it for the title screen and I will see what I can do.

As for crediting, if the game is non-commercial, a credit to me as Auro-Cyanide is fine where all the other credits are. Not sure what to do for a commercial game though, so just talk to me :)

Yes! This is exactly what I need. I'm absolutely terrible at making logos, especially with my handwriting, so I've been really stuck for what to do about one for my game.

Unfortunately, I can't think of any samples of what I would like it to look like, but in general I would like for it to fit with the paper and ink theme of the VN as a whole. As far as general tone goes, being a bit on the darker side is probably best. The game is modern fantasy, and not a romance, aside from some romantic subplots, so it should probably reflect that.

If you need any more of a description, I'll gladly give you more.

Thank you so much in advance, even if you're unable to do it. I've been really struggling to find someone to help me with this.

Cool, I would be happy to help you. I presume you are talking about 'The World is Made of Paper'? (Awesome title by the way)

I read over you thread and I think I may have come up with an idea. How does a hand created logo type painted in ink sound? I was thinking something like this (don't mind the colours, the image upload site tends to screw with it)
Image

Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I would obviously pick a different base typeface for yours and probably make it a little gritter, maybe some ink splatter and such. I could either vector it or keep it as bitmap, which might be nice if you wanted to keep the paper texture. I would be able to separate it from the background and create a variation of colours if you need it, or even just a black and a white version to use of different darkness backgrounds. What do you think?

On a side note, are you still having a problem with the edges of your sprites being a bit rough? I was thinking, if you had photoshop, you should be able to select the area outside of your sprite (which is what I presume you did to delete the background) try altering the feather setting to a couple pixels before you select the area and delete it. This usually blurs the edges slightly. You may have to fiddle with it a bit and it may come out TOO blurred, but it might work.

I would like a logo made, if it's not too much trouble. The game I'm working on is called "Perpetual Night"; it's a supernatural/psychological horror piece. I don't have any firm ideas on how the logo should look/I would like it to look, so it can be pretty much anything that would belong in the horror genre. Color preferences would be black and red, white is fine too.

A few questions:

Can this be used for a title screen, and;
How would I go about crediting you?

I'd like one too. :)

I have a project called "The Spiritual Equivalent", a psychic/spiritual fantasy otome game. I prefer green, blue and white for it. I don't have any preferences on how the initial look would be, just that it looks cursive, fancy and fantasy/psychic/spiritual like. If you can't do it that fast, I'd be waiting for it then. I'd be using it for the title screen. But if you don't like it like that, it's okay for promotional purposes only... :)

Awesome... I suck at logos sooo I would like 3:

- Secret Santa: short cute kind of VN, and as long as the logo's kind of Christmas themed, it's all good.

- Connected: also a short VN about school life... I would like kind of a star behind the words Connected and ribbons around it

- Logo for: Eternal Dreams Productions ;D (To put on the splashscreen in the beginning of the game)

If you could make 3 for me that'll be great, but if you could only make one... just make the logo for Connected.

Please and Thank You. :)

Auro-Cyanide, that sounds great, especially with the ink splatters. Keeping it as a bitmap seems like the best idea, because of what you said, and I'm fine with keeping it as just black and white, if that would be less trouble for you. I probably won't have much of a reason to vary up the colors too much.

Also, I actually haven't tried feathering them yet. I'll go try that right now. Thank you! I'm glad you like the title, too. I was honestly a little worried if it's any good or not. Apparently it is.

@Melnahara Sure thing, sounds good. I will have to look at some horror movies for inspiration :3 It should be able to be used as a title screen, as long as I make it high enough quality. I might do two versions if I have time, a prettified one for the title one and a more simple one to be used everywhere else at a smaller scale, I think that should be fine. As for crediting, as long as the project is non-commercial, a credit placed with the rest of the credits to me as Auro-Cyanide is fine :) Also (should have added this question in the beginning) do you want a symbol (logo) with the logotype? By that I mean do you want a specific symbol you can use separate to the title? That may take a little longer by the way and I may need to get a little more info on the game.

@Lumen Sure, I should be able to do that. If I have time I will do the same for you as Melnahara and make a prettier version for the title screen and a more standard version for everything else. Also (should have added this question in the beginning) do you want a symbol (logo) with the logotype? By that I mean do you want a specific symbol you can use separate to the title? That may take a little longer by the way and I may need to get a little more info on the game.

@okonomiyaki Thanks ^^ I used it for the banner at my grad show.

@EternalDream I might be able to do all three, I will have to see how I am going. I'm doing it on first come first served (unless I get a strong idea for another and can get it done quickly) so it might take a little while, but I should be able to do it ^^b

@Coolio, I will get stuck into it when I get back. It is an awesome name, I'm attract to it every time I see it (...if you can be attracted to a name>>)

Thanks, awesome. Indeed, it'll be non-commercial, so something like "Title and Logo: Auro-Cyanide" should be fine? And a symbol would be great, if you have the time. Just tell me what info you need and I can paste it here or send it in a pm, whichever you prefer.

Do you mind if you could make a logo for Our Hearts, (Y)our Days?

It's a school based visual novel, the color I'd prefer is probably either grey, blue or red.

The style can depend on what you think of the initial project.

Thank you for the time

@EternalDream Okie Dokie. How soon around about for Secret Santa? I could push yours forward if you need it quickly but I probably can't do anything quicker then probably the 19th (depends when I have work).

@Melnahara Sure, that is fine. If you want a symbol then you will want something relevant to the story, so anything that has significance. You can PM me if you don't want to make it public. Reoccurring themes, important objects etc. For instance, cherry blossoms are an important part of one of the games I am working on, so they are used frequently in the designs. I can stylise from there, but I need a base.
