This may not be our best option:



nor this



Although an attempt at making a logo did surface in the past, we never really did got it finalized. Here's where we left off about the time I went MIA just before Ludens joined the gang.

consider it service charge for their employees to take a look at your artwork. still have to pay the on-site dell guy even if he couldn't fix your laptop at your house.

Almost not worth it. :l

I'm gonna hold off on any opinions, seeing as I'm not really paying for it. I trust you guys to find the right emblem. :]

That old logo concept was for in-game BeGone (Scoreboard)

Doubt it'll work with Warframe.

Clan emblem is displayed in HiRes with a soft glow effect. Minute details can actually be seen. Look at the 2 photos inside spoilers in OP.

Logo sample

Post by Mortalus on 2014-09-12, 00:55

Sketched a quick logo. The blue background is for effect and will be transparent ingame. Used the previous Creed logo as a sample. Thoughts?

How about that old circular logo I designed a while back? It's a little rough as it is, but maybe someone with photoshop skills can clean it up (or I could do it in GIMP toward the end of the week, after I finish tests and stuff). Unlike when I first developed this thing, I have a tablet and pen now, so I can do a bit more with digital images if needed.

so you're the one.

1. I hated it the first time I saw it months (years?) ago

2. Ironically, that logo now fits Warframe.
- gleaming metal trim around it. Outlining the orange symbol.

3. Sorta remembered and was thinking about it the other day while I was puffing away on nicotine. Thought we should develop this logo more.

4. That orange in the middle does not work.
- Artistic. Superimposing the letters over each other. But has no meaning.

---

My #1 wishlist for our logo is to have:
- Orange middle
- On dark outline or background
- This will allow us to use any colours for our frames and still retain the trademark Creed orange

First thing we need to discuss and agree on is:

What the hell is our SYMBOL.
We don't have one.
We are atm C.R.E.E.D
Letters. Not gonna work well on a battlesuit.

Are we arrows ? pyramids ? Fists ? swords ? Pistol ? Tigers ?

3 ingredients.

Shape + Colour + Symbol = Logo

right now we can only agree on one. The colour Orange.

Here's a version with colors that make my eyes hurt less:
Spoiler:

Obviously, the edges still need to be cleaned up, and some lighting and/or 3d effects would be nice to add depth, but I got it to the point where I could start trying out color schemes. This one is a gradient based on #E07E6B as the lightest (foremost) shade. I figured that might help add a sense of depth to it and distinguish the letters more.

As for a symbol, or meaning, that's hard to do in a logo for a clan whose name has no meaning. We pretty much picked the name "Creed" because someone thought it sounded cool way back. We could all agree on a mascot or something, but it would be hard to find one that has anything to do with our name. The alternative is to pick a symbol that represents abstractions about our clan, like our clan values or overall personality or something. The easiest thing that comes to mind is some Greek mythological thing that represents something about Creed. With my limited knowledge of such matters, I might not be of much help there, but I can do a lot with the "Creed" letters.

Spoiler:

I can type out some BS symbolism on what all the different elements mean but I'll leave you with just the image for now. It isn't some random picture.

That is just a concept sketch. It lacks 2 things

1. Shiny metallic thingy bits that makes Ryan's logo warframy.
2. HiDef details and glowy lights. A simple 2D jpg will not look good on my HD Rhino Prime. It will fail.

Needs a talented and super generous artist *ahem* to sexify.

Thoughts ?

Actually, I may be able to do something in AutoCAD with the logo. GIMP doesn't really have great functionality in the circles and parallel lines department.

you mean to apply some bevels, textures and stuff?

For geometric images, especially like in Ryan's logo, I would prefer to work on vectors, like in CorelDraw. For detailed effects, I would use Photoshop. Sometimes I have to use both, I wish I could learn to use Illustrator instead.

Like this? Or should I center the star on the picture?

My 2 cents worth:

I would lower it a bit so the whole rectangular patch fits within the circle of the "C" (may have to adjust size), drop the "REED" letters, keep the metallic circle and the "C"; add sheen and an afterglow effect.

Here's that digital reproduction someone was asking for earlier. I did the outline in AutoCAD and the colors in GIMP.

Outline:
Silver/Orange:

If anyone wants the original AutoCAD or GIMP files, I can send those as well.

GREEK ABSTRACTIONS

That got me thinking.

I took the chevron suggested by bravo and used only that to write out the letters CREED
http://i.imgur.com/M78YXDk.png
http://i.imgur.com/buDzl6B.png

Saw an arrow emerge from the negative space between the last E and D
Rotated the picture and framed it in a hexagon. Got this
http://i.imgur.com/67FJzKb.png

TS, Azh and Boty on RC gave feedback. Too complicated, letters were better. Hard to see ingame when its made smaller. Issues with placement and amount of the colour orange etc. Did another pass. This time simplified it just to see what it'd look like

1. without colour
2. simplified geometry
3. metallic

Spoiler:

Wanted to reverse the bevelling so the CREED becomes negative space. Probably figure out how to Orangize it. But Eminem came knocking on RC Lounge saying something about 100,000 credits per 5 minutes. So I'll be on pluto thinking about this some more.

In the meantime .. feedback
