New logo ?

Postby UBT - Timbo » Sat Nov 26, 2016 11:43 pm

Hi all,

A new logo has been kindly created for the Team by one of our new members, wkdwill, and I was wondering if anyone would like to comment on it.

Image

The old logo has stood the test of time for ages now, and it shows, in a very simple way, who we are. Does the new logo "work" better ?

Anyone care to weigh in with comments on the new one? (Non-antagonistic comments would be best !!)

regards
Tim

Hi

Really like it, though looking at both, they do seem to promote a 'space' theme - probably harking back to when BOINC was just SETI and Einstein. How you could incorporate everything that BOINC is involved in (Biology, physics, maths for example) might be a bit too much to have in a single logo (I seem to have talked myself out of any change now :-) ).

Hi all,

Constructive comments received :)
I can see what you mean about the space theme, let me have a play and see what I come up with, I'll try to get the background to look like a network of some sort, maybe just nodes with lines between them?

So after a little messing around and being unable to come up with a network node map type image that I liked, I decided to try something different, here's the result

Constructive criticism welcomed :text-feedback:

Hi Will,

Very nice logo, bright, clean and specific. Thanks for the work.

I like the network type map although I think it would be better slightly if it was sort of UK centered but stretching out to cover the rest of the world. A little like airplane flight maps from a specific airport? To imply that we start here but we crunch in these destinations?

Regards,

Mark

Hi Mark,

I like your thinking, let me have a tinker with it.

So, I've had a little tinker with the image and this is what I have so far, not as bright as before but the lines I would like to put on the "map"
wouldn't show up with the white background.

Hi Will

Thanks for the new logo's....certainly gives us something to think about (ie changing the logo).

Personally, I prefer the white background version at the moment, if only because the BOINC logo stands out more...on the darker background, it sorts of blends in so, only UK and Team stand out.

You don't need to change anything for now and perhaps, let's see what other ideas people can suggest - otherwise, you'll be tweaking and changing logo's for the next year !!

(And of course, if any one else wants to try out their creative skills on this, then feel free...)

regards
Tim

I had the same thought about the Boinc logo, leave it with me, I'll try to lighten it up a bit.
Once something like this gets in my head, I'm like a dog with a bone.

Slight revision to the colours, had to play around with some effects to get everything to stand out as the text definition was lost.

Oh I like that! Very crisp and bright! Think you've cracked it!
Well done!

Hi Will

My only comment is that the website URL would be better as:

ukboincteam.org.uk/newforum

This is because:
a) the www is unnecessary
b) The website isn't used for much (these days) and ideally I'd prefer to promote the forum

Otherwise, the graphics look really bold and clear.

regards
Tim

Hi Will

That looks really good (IMHO).

An an option (and perhaps some might prefer), can you reduce the size of the "world projection" (in the grey) such that it looks smaller and then make the blue "UK" graphic a little smaller so that all of the UK (inc more of Scotland and also the southern/western parts of Wales/Devon/Cornwall) also fit into the height of the banner.

My idea is partly nicked from the Man from U.N.C.L.E. logo perhaps

Image

where the foreground circle is replaced by the image of UK - no need for a man in his suit+gun either !!

Tim

Hi Tim,

Hold that thought, I've had an idea.

And here's the idea

The white network lines aren't as clear but I can work on that.

Hi

I'm not sure about that now. UK map looks too domineering - we've taken over Africa and are coming for America! The Blue version looks too skinny!

Now that's the sort of thing I was thinking of originally. Looking good.
