Default New Logo

A new logo for Musepack is needed. Who would like to design one or work with us to create one? Reply to the thread and offer your opinion/help, if you wish.

Thanks

Update: the new logo done by Craig (Whistler) is finished.

For a standard sized web button and a high resolution version refer to this post.

What are your requirements? As far as I know, the old logo contains "MPEGplus" and the "mp+ / mpc" extensions on the left. Now is this needed? Or the logo should say "Musepack", without anything obsolete like "mp+" and "MPEGplus" ?

"MPEG Plus" or "MP+" has not been in use for ages, I'm surprised some people still insist on using this outdated name. Do you see any mention of it on our site? Musepack is the name.
The old logo is the logo you see on this site, not Frank Klemm's very outdated site.

Of course, but I asked the question because I can see the old logo used in the WinAMP plug-in.

just use the terms "musepack" and "mpc" and DON'T use the terms "MPEGplus" "MPEG" "mp+" or "mpp" and you should be fine

We'll have to pick one before October 24th. If there aren't enough submitted by then we'll delay the choice until we've updated the site and its look (more bandwidth/speed is planned as well).

Keep sending them here or to the HA thread.

Thanks

I am kinda hoping that no one else contributes, so you pick mine by default. :lol: Besides, I donated a sound card to Frank's PC, and I hope to continue contributing to Musepack as much as I can.

If you have any requests in what you'd like to see in a logo, feel free to tell me and I will try to accomodate. This is really my first series of attempts at working with vectors only.

I added some slight gradiants so it doesn't seem so flat. I was a moron and uploaded an UBER image to imageshack....but I guess you kids can make a wallpaper out of it if you want. :P

i'd suggest to enter some other variants of that logo

i like the style and colors - except the black background is a bit lame

...or not...

In my spare time, I'll be happy to contribute one or maybe two logos. Soon...

xmixahlx, the logo is background neutral. I merely chose black for contrast. If you have a particular color that you would like to see, by all means, tell me.

Here is a little more gradiant, which gives it more of a 3D effect, though I am not sure if I prefer it over the flater feeling of the previous versions.




Discuss.

Isn't 'Musepack' as word too long for a logo,
as banner like here in the forum ok, of course.

For a smaller logo I suggest 'MPC' as key letters.

It's easy to make MPC....just take the text and cut out 5 letters. =P

Guys, please stick to the topic. We need more logos, or we'll simply delay our choice until we see more entries from others.

This is seed's way of saying that I just don't cut the mustard. :cry:

Taste is very subjective

It's not so much "taste" as... not wanting to change the color scheme of the whole site to suit a logo that's the opposite of the current one in terms of hue and 'temperature'. Some of the transparent icons have been made IE6-compatible and after a lot of painful experiments of both Lefungus, Shy, and I. I'd hate to change the look of the site to support a radically new logo unless if most of those who post show their support for it. I'm going to give my vote to a pastel-ish colored logo that fits the current color scheme of this forum/site or requires little change to it. If I see none submitted, I might have to have a go myself.. beware! :twisted:
