Alternative Logo Design


#1

Made an alternative GDevelop logo design for fun because i love this app :slight_smile:



#2

Design process:



#3

It cool
Can it b used instead of the gdevelop splash screen?


#4

I’ve no idea how to implement that i am just making graphics :sweat_smile:


#5

OK
Nice one bro💝
You are good


#6

It looks like game maker’s logo

It does looks like game maker’s logo at first but then, i search for the meaning behind the current GDevelop logo and i found out that the G is kind of spiral. Like said in GDevelop Logo Meaning topic that the meaning of spiral itself is a hint on how a program or a game are created by expanding and circling around from what you already have.
As you can see in my logo the G is kind of spiral only it doesn’t arching.

You make some very high quality art!

My only concern is readability. It looks like: “(cool logo) Develop”


#9

Hi thank you.
Yes, when i made the logo i fear this too and until now it still bothering me… the current logo does still have better readability than mine.

I am not a lawyer, but I would like to say: there is in a jurisdiction the term “confusing similarity”. In short, this means that 2 logos, or rather your version of the GDevelop and Game Maker logo, are very similar to each other, namely from a symbol similar to a rhombus, but with a curved side. A person could confuse your version of the logo with the Game Maker logo. It’s considered a copyright infringement


#11

Oh, i see… thank you for your insight. Better to avoid similar shape then right? I’ll be more careful in the future.


#12

If it was seriously considered to replace the current logo with on of these, I like this the best.

I also like the concept of making both G and D a logo like here

But I don’t actually like the way the G looks like in this logo, maybe take the middle of the G from the first one instead.

Regarding readability it could be done like Game Maker does it to include the full name GDevelop next to the logo regardless the logo is meant to be a G.
I also agree on that the logo looks too similar to GameMaker, YoYo Games could force 4ian to change it.

You made some nice designs there, anyhow, personally I do like the original logo better, it is also original and 4ian can more likely protect his rights to use it. :+1:

Agree, the original logo is so original and can easily distinguish GDevelop from other brand. Thanks for the feedback though, this is one awesome community. :smile:

I made a tweak to one I found from 2014:
