Already doing it, just need the font used for "ZERO" 3DO Si, he'll email it to me Monday.


PS. I hope you like the new tagline, I figured "The Only R.E.A.L. 3DO Experience." includes the alternative name and R.E.A.L. which was recently brought up. I secretly liked 3DO Zone as well, hence why I didn't want to vote, plus I would have shortened my name to 3DOExp and I really like the "3DO Experience" maxim bla bla bla :D

You really should make the alternate "3DO employees are irritated by our old name forum" too, if only for a laugh. :P

Maybe that will be the April Fool's name. :wink:

This is a sample of the new logo, if people think it's too busy I can use the official symbol. Not really sure if I like it due to the size.

Not to intentionally put a cat amongst any pigeons but I felt like whipping a few ideas up based on the super cool packaging (imo) of the 3DO development packs:

Cheers Trev.

I forgot to link the relevant images:

Yeah, that.

I'd never seen it before until recently (thanks bitrate) and I thought it looked super cool 8)

I based the design around that really. Simple, but stylish. I hope...

They are all nice. I think the all black background makes the logo easier to read (especially the yellow O) It's a bolder look to, and more eye catching.

Finished, I didn't use a transparency as it really ruined the edges so I made the background match the banner.

I edited the logo in both to match the official symbols as well as the 3 in Ninja's.

It would be awesome if there was a way to use all three and have them alternate at random based on page refreshing or something.

I agree with this too, though I do like all three, but 'A' just wins out for me, not sure why... brighter and more welcoming. That doesn't make sense. I should've just said "aye, I agree".

I like A. It just seems to be the friendliest.

Here's version A. I had to add a little bit of shadow to 3DO as it clashed some.

Now that I see the four of them together I see why people liked this one. I really dislike the one with the images in the logo. It looks good when it's huge but kinda ugly so small.

Ah... it's not though, is it? :wink:

It's actually an edited version of C without the black box. I can tell because the blue in the D is 'out' (as per intended on black) and the 3DO logo is disproportionate to the height of the logo. Eh? :D

I hadn't actually given my opinion on which I like best out of the 3, but it was also Type A.

I'll create a proper shadowed version and upload it tomorrow to ponder over.

Incidentally, I liked the Genestealer in the blue 'TV' part of the logo. Thought that was a nice touch 8)

Yeah it's an edit, I cut out the top and replaced it with the official characters. It was easier than just cutting the black out and trying to make the edges look good.

The grey background looks nearly white on my computer ... it doesn't stand out at all, and the yellow O in 3DO looks pretty poor. The black looks much better imho.

Hmmm. I think you're in need of some contrast adjustments Trev! 8)

Finally made some updates to the original 'Type A' logo.

3x shadow variants, basically:

Sorry ... even with your revisions, I still don't care for the boring grey color scheme. :wink: Nothing personal though, I still like your type C ... or the black & grey mix that 3DOExp. did.

Well the boring grey is the top of the screen where our now old logo is. Also I did some samples in the size they would be.

I think your type Z stands out the best.
Please note these are just quickly tossed together, anything final would have better geometry.

Haven't you heard? The grey color offends former 3DO employees, since it was the color of the original Playstation. :P
