    Hui Jack: my honest opinion: I think the first logo looks like a leaf, the second looks a bit devilish and I wonder what it's pointing at ;-) and the third looks like a strange vegetable or alien life form.

    I really like the logo in the fourth for its graphic simplicity in getting its message across although the one below is more fun, and like @TheMoonwalls, I also like it.

    But if I were deciding, I'd choose the fourth logo with the type from the third (adjusting colours as required). although I do like the type as well in the fourth one...

    I'm not sure the can, or whatever it is, does anything at all in this fourth one, (but I think I can guess the reason for it) so I'd ditch that to leave the logo and one of the two type styles from 3 or 4.

    Never fails to amaze me though how everyone's taste is different! :-)

    Jack, I'm afraid I don't like any of them :(

    Man it is SO HARD to pick a new logo. I am doing that right now also.
    I had so many great submissions, I'm not sure how I will decide.

    As for these I like #3 with maybe a different flame and the last one also!

    Number 2, the red one def, professional and awesome
  • SteverdSteverd Posts: 194Member
    I liked #2, BUT I didn't like the arrow at the top of the flame.
    Not sure what the arrow "meant" if anything. I think I would like it better
    without the arrow.

    Im very passionate about my companies logo so thats why I have so much, I feel that a logo is extremely important as it is the first impression someone gets of a company, The best logos in the world are all simple but mesmerizing beautiful! Amazing examples that I like are the apple, Amazon & Samsung logo..
    I think what makes these logos the best is they are all simple, But they all have a little subliminal message in them; IE; Amazon with an arrow going from a-z signify they have everything from A-Z...
    The apple logo is just simply beautiful...
    Me personally I'm looking for something that signifies "Thermo" and "Apps"..
    I need a beautiful simple logo...
    Thats why I like the orange No2 logo...
    Any advice from artist/graphic designers or help... from those on the forums whom are good at art is much appreciated.....
    ---------------------
    @Doguz
    Those are very good! :) Thank you very much! :)
    Here are a few of my favorite logos:

    one thing you should take into consideration is WHERE the logo will be used. are you planning to only have your logo posted as a splash screen to your game? consider that you might want your logo appearing on another website. lets say toucharcade are doing an article on you. if they post your logo in the article its going to be this ugly orange boxed thing sitting on their page, or a green box or a grey box. notice how all those logos above that you posted arent "locked" into a box shape? the logo themselves can be used over media of any background colour. for instance the firefox logo can be placed over a black background because it has no set background colour boxing it in. all those apple logos could be placed on a pink background. a plain logo like the puma one just gets inversed if it needs to go over a background of same colour or dark colour. do you see what i mean? if you cant do this with your logo then you need to go back to the drawing board. when i designed my logo i made sure it would work over both a white or black background. what if you wanted to send out an official document with your company logo as the letter head. its going to be on white paper most likely. how is it going to look?

    Don't put the cart before the horse :)

    You should be spending your time developing a brand with multiple products so people know what to expect. No need to have a logo with nothing to put it on.

    I would pick the logo you like the most out of what you have and focus on creating some apps. Once you have a few out and have refined your style, use tht influence to flesh out your logo.

    Just a quick comment... the one I did is more of a splash screen than a logo - too complex for a logo - it's a thermo with the logo on it as a little joke.

    Taking the thermo away you would end up with something like this for a logo:

    I agree with Jonmulcahy though - you have been going on about this logo for months now... and it might be a good idea to put the logo on the backburner and make some apps. Chose a logo YOU like and run with it (asking 100 people will give you 200 opinions) ... Stick to the decision and work with the logo until you feel like altering it... Logos are not set in stone and they evolve with the client. Just make sure it does what you need it to do - stand out and look good across the media you intend to use it in.
    Good luck with it.

    SpriteAttack's logo looks the best to me (by a long long way).
  • App SurgeApp Surge Posts: 651Member
    And SpriteAttack saves the day ;)
  • mu-kowAPPSmu-kowAPPS Posts: 233Member
    spriteattack's logo blows the ones you posted out of the water.

    Magnificent!
  • LeonardDeveloperLeonardDeveloper Posts: 4,630Member
    @jonmulcahy
    I agree, 100%... I just thought I should really expand my branding now, Ive got a few apps out and vie got two waiting fro revue at the moment, So I felt it was time to get the logo situation straight... But yes you are indeed entirely correct, and I appreciate your advice!,
    @zombueaddict true.. The logos I have one my first post aren't really logos...
    @rks fed ex's logo is beautiful...
    @tshirtbooth just out of curiousuty who did "bigbananapps's logo? If you don't mind sharing... It's really good! :)
    @mu kow apps
    Yes.. :D sprite attacks work always blows things out of the water here!
    @spriteattack
    Again, Chris saves the day!
    You're right, To be honest I have been spending a while on the logo, I need to develop a market first I suppose, Well to choose a logo that I like... to be honest it would be your one up their! :) is their anyway that we can organise getting the logo for you? Would you like me to pay with pay pal or something? If you're not in any trouble, to just sell me the logo without the "IMBRI" watermark and in full size.... :)
    Thanks mate!,
    Cheers J.Leonard

    I need sprite attack to do mine. :-)
  • BarrytheBraveBarrytheBrave Posts: 134Member
    I don't want to tread on anybodies toes around here guys, but when Leonard said he's looking for something that says "Thermo" and "Apps", this sort of thing came to mind:

    image

    On my original files the orange isn't quite so red, imageshack seems to have done something to the colours, but you get the idea. You're totally free to use any of these ideas if you want Leonard, or I can mess about with them if you want me to make any changes etc. Thanks.
  • LeonardDeveloperLeonardDeveloper Posts: 4,630Member
    @ooi
    Wow.. These would all make excellent splash screens.. Would you mind emailing the individual .png files to jack(at)thermo-apps.com :D
    Cheers Mate,

    Hi Jack (sorry I kept calling you Leonard above, just assumed from your user name)!

    Email sent, although you might be best to pick a style and go with it for a while. For example I've used different letter spacing in a few of the designs, so to keep a consistent brand it's probably worth picking one style, that way your brand will be more recognisable. However they are all very similar so you can probably get away with using them all if you want to. Either way I hope they're useful!

    @RKS and everyone else. Just wanted to throw this out there in regards to the FedEX logo, for if anyone never noticed it! If you look at the little spacing in between the E and the X it makes a white arrow. Clever little guys! LOL Just like to throw that out there because a lot of people don't realize it! Woot Woot!
