Title: Bling Bling version of the Bitcoin logo
Post by: goodlord666 on July 12, 2012, 07:04:27 PM
New version available!
Get the .psd file here: http://www.cryptoanarchy.com/store/image/btc_logo.psd
Thanks to Paul for hosting it!

As promised, I updated the logo with some more detail:
- defined the grooves and edges a little more
- made the B more prominent by adding contrast to its shadow (which makes a big difference when the logo is scaled down)
- merged some work files to make the .psd more editable.
- named & grouped the layers in the .psd (also includes the different color variants below)


The binary numbers I added translate to the timestamp found in the genesis block. Starting at 12 o'clock, clockwise, the binary read from right to left (i.e. beginning at 2^1).

I kinda liked that idea...

1.0 BTC to whoever can prove I screwed up on the conversion (which I might have; so please somebody double-check).


Here's some variants (big and small as .png's):

Changing colors to personal preference is really easy. If you edit the .psd remember to flatten the image before rescaling it to avoid distortion of effects, mainly glows and shadows. The white outline can be altered or removed alltogether, just like the outside glow, but they make it work on most backgrounds as per default.

Disable the lens flare in the .psd if you dont like it.

And yes, I do have a donation address now :)

This is great (without the flare effect): the coin looks like 1000 C

Please send me the psd file to boussac.75011 at gmail.com, preferably under DWTFYW license  ;)

I think the edges and grooves need to be more defined in a darker color, but other than that, i am diggin it!

Can you make an EPS or PDF file available?


Title: Re: Bling Bling version of the original Bitcoin logo
Post by: Realpra on July 12, 2012, 10:39:58 PM
Could you make it less orange and more yellow/lighter color?

Anyway its great I may well use it.

I totally agree. Let me see what I can do this weekend.
(EPS/PDF should be possible, however only the 1's and 0's are scalable vectors.)

Very nice, although I did notice that the shadow on this one is red while the coin is blue (Teal). The other versions are using the same colour shadow while this one looks like a blue glow over a red drop shadow.
Is it a mistake? I quite like this duotone effect when the coin is small.

Not a mistake. You can easily make a clean blue version by editing the .psd.

In other words you bumped a 12 months dead old topic to post off-topic spam.

Great artwork goodlord666.

Just wanted to share this image which Small Biz Trends probably ray-traced in-house. I think the mirror effect in a stack of coins is amazing.

Saying that, if someone made a 3d design and put it on a gold medallion, I'm sure there would be a market for it!
