New logo suggestion for ET:L

Added by Saukko over 5 years ago

Ok, I recieved a message back from the artist and he sent me a logo suggestion.

He also gave a tiny intro for the logo and here is what he wrote:


New logo:
like the messy and buggy et source, that has been cleaned and enhanced by et:l crew. the old ET logo has been deconstructed and assembled in a new and innovative way. the outcome: it is clean and simple, but not forgeting the roots. the wing from the ET logo next to "L", is showing the new side of ET gaming.

just Legacy:
because there is no need for "ET:". the logo speaks "enemy territory" by itself. and since so many mods use prefix "ET:" before their modname, having just legacy really stands out and is more proffessional.

color:
red: #FF1E00
black: #000

typography:
kenzo regular


I personally like the new logo, but I don’t know about you guys. Tell me your opinion and I will give the word forward.

Might be a bit too modern for some people (ie, not legacy enough), but I personally like it

Thx for your involvement in this. Who’s the author?

That logo would be perfect for an icon and for the menu background imho, making something look ww2:is or like morsik said "war game like" usually just makes it look like overly complicated crap. This is simple and because it is simple it can be used in a lot of places, instead of just wallpaper with a quadtrillion colors which make your eyes bleed.

Yes, I agree with all of you guys!

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by Saukko over 5 years ago

So, what’s the next step then? The logo seems to be fine to almost everyone here.

Simple yet impressive.

As Radegast accepted the logo and everyone else seem to like it as well you should provide us with the vector format of the image (if possible) and write down the creators information to the Credits tab

Thanks to you!

For the credits, shall we use "deep" as your name, or another one? (diamond?).

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by deep over 5 years ago

np. You can use deep ,

Just have a look at

ET not installed on my PC.

Can you test with this file?

legacy_logo_alpha-chan.tga - 16 bit (15 Bytes)

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by Spyhawk over 5 years ago

Thx deep. I can’t open your new file (corrupted?), but I might be able to create the required tga files from the pdf.

Edit: actually, a standard vectored .svg file would be very welcome. I don’t own Illustrator, and working with the PDF doesn’t give me expected quality (pixelated logo).

Perfect, thx a lot

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by IR4T4 over 5 years ago

I would like to see a white border around the red logo for dark backgounds - see http://etconfig.net/wp-content/uploads/2009/05/enemy_territory_download.jpg

Awesome work!

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by deep over 5 years ago

yea, I was considering that, but realized that it’s not needed. It’s more readable and less confusing the way it is now.
Thank You.

Edit:
ET logo uses a dark red color - it needs a light border to be visible at dark bg. For ET:L I chose a bright red (even brighter than 255 red) - no need for border

Deep, I modified your logo a bit to show how I thik this logo can be improved . Like this it looks more like RTCW or ET upper right corner but still has that distinguishable L shape.

Hey, the logo has been included in the master branch already. I won’t change it unless I get a complete new source file. Also, opinion of the members of the team about the modified version would be welcome too.

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by Dragonji over 5 years ago

A nice but really small change.

RE: New logo suggestion for ET:L - Added by kkthx about 5 years ago

I’d prefer the new one.
