Forum Logo (and other bits) Redesign?

Unread postby JStheguy » Fri Jan 19, 2018 11:37 pm #374461

I'll be honest, personally I think the logo we have at the top of the forums, as well as the wiki main page logo and buttons all look kinda not that great. The forum logo especially seems poorly desinged, with various parts, like the "/tg/station" text blending into the background somewhat. So, I thought I'd try my hand at doing a bit of a redesign for those things, and post them here to see what everyone else thinks of them.

Image
The redesigned forum logo; as it is quite hard to see on the post background, I've put a mockup of the new logo in action below, along with a screencap of the current logo for comparison.
Image
The "Hell is Other Spacemen" subtitle is just there to fill some space to keep it near the same height as the old logo without making it even longer than it already is. If length isn't that big of an issue, here is also a subtitle-less extra long logo:
ImageImage

Image
The redesigned wiki logo, slightly longer and quite a bit taller than the current logo.

The redesigned wiki buttons, actually a bit slimmer and shorter than the current buttons if you account for all the blank space in the current button images. These may need some tweaking to get them to look just right in action, though.

These wiki buttons definitely look better than the current ones, but I don't suppose this font lets you write in lowercase? It might be more easy to read the button text if they weren't all-caps.

At this point I'm mainly leaving it up so that somebody will fix it, because I also think the old one was kinda dated.

Yeah, well, shuddup.

Here's the crew at the right size with no background you can slot in when you redo the text so my mock ups don't decide where you place them vertically:

They're holding hands as much as the old ones were. I can smoosh them together more/put the hand of one over the hand of another and try to grab the other stuff to put in. Clock cult isn't disabled? What's nightware? I didn't want to include moths since I didn't want to trust they'd exist five months from now given how new they are and catgrilles have more claim to a spot than moths. Maybe even fly people or golems.

I'll try to make another group pairing (or a few more to pick from, we can make a poll out of it and then pester MSO summoar to plonk the right one up the top left) after I snooze because it's no biggie to edit it. The text was far more time consuming and I'm glad MSO's made that part just html/css for many reasons.

Tried to make handholding. It worked, sort of, but is indistinct as to what's going on even when enlarged.
Image Image

Image Image
Also I couldn't find space for either the cluwne or the cog cultist without handholding or adding a third member to the back row, which made the school photo grouping a little lopsided given the back row's balance of humanoid, square, centre, square, humanoid. Though I noticed the cog cult armour has two holes that see through to the wearer? And it had a weird pixel jutting off the left arm.

Oh and I found out what I originally gave had some bad pixels. I missed erasing a few floor tile pixels in the middle of legs and cut off too many pixels from the cargo techie's shorts.

I feel I'm going to leave it as the assortment I did originally, with pixel amendments sent to MSO.
