I've talked with @Vertcoin about some things like marketing, to get VTC known to the world.
We've first decided to create a brand new eye-catching logo.

This is what I've designed so far based on the current logo, and it's our (the Vertens, this is the name of our fanbase am I correct?) job to pick up the best logo.
Because, since Vertcoin is going to become a huge cryptocurrency, we need a beautiful logo for all those news/media, right?  Wink

Vote for the icon wich you think it's the best.

Some of these are really bad.
You must have seen the new logo someone on reddit made. It's looks way better than any of these options, sorry to be negative.

These are about 10x times worse than the current logo... Looks like someone discovered a few effects in photoshop and triend out some fonts.

I'd like to thank eduffield and the other developers for this critically important evolution in virtual currency. DarkCoin is what bitcoin should have been. Some might call it "Bitcoin 2.0" but would do better by saying: "DarkCoin is digital cash." - Child Harold - February 28, 2014

I agree with this. I'm not saying 100% that rebranding the logo is a bad idea, but I like it as it is quite a lot - something really nice would have to come along for me to express a preference for it above the current one. However, I do quite like the "tick" style one someone did on a "VTC accepted here" image.

Except the "v" is too thick. Why does the logo need to be changed anyway.

You got the perfect logo already. Perfectly scalable and easily recognizable.
Please no Bling-Bling!
Vertcoin stands for reliability, which is represented by the actual logo.

The reddit one (with a thinner "v") can be used as main logo, and for retailers this one you made is perfect

Love the two on the left(bottom and upper left). Not sure about the slogan though. The V on both logos is awesome!

This could be a good idea, but you are doing it prematurely.  Get the community to come up with ideas, there are brilliant graphical people out there who could make numerous great designs.  Maybe post a reward for whoever wins the vote.  But give the guys a few weeks to make their designs first and collect donations for the reward.  

It might not be a bad thing giving the coin a "fresh" new look, we could still have the option to vote on the old design if we dont like the new ones, but i dont think it would hurt to see what other people come up with before we entirely dismiss the idea.

These are the only logos that would connect with everyday people, I think. "money for people" is also very good. It's more clear than any other, and simple.

How about we poll average people instead of miners and developers? Wouldn't that make more sense if we want (everyday) people to use it?

honestly, I think this is a mistake.

"let people decide" sounds nice, but we need to ask at least 20 random people on the street, for example

If we are going to choose a new logo and have a bounty, we should set a deadline on the submissions, then start a new thread with all the options. That way there is time for artists to put together logos.

Code:
[img]http://i.imgur.com/arRowiR.jpg[/img]

uses (same as Bitcoin) the Ubuntu font due to obvious reasons.
http://font.ubuntu.com/
regular style, it's clean and scales nicely.
80% black for the text as it's less "hard"

For the green color, that generic green of the actual logo is too cheap and doesn't reflect a distinct and serious image.
#006633, web safe, works very nicely for UIs and is distinct due to the bluish tone.
Good scalability (UIs, tiny logos on exchanges, favicons etc..)
Works perfectly in any dimensions, greyscale and b&w.

Shadows, fine lines, outlines are not suited for a logo mainly used on screens/low res.

Vert needs a slick ID, not only a logo.
- defined colorpalette for web & print
- logo (that works from 16x16px up to unlimited)
- dedicated font (that is free, professional and represents the spirit of cryptocurrencys)

I like the logo-6 (right side) with check-mark.

Check mark means something is correct and right, so use check-mark as "V" in vertcoin logo is elegant.

I Vote for logo-6 (middle and right side).

P.S: Can you separate those with check-mark from other as something like logo-8 ?!

Agreed. The contest isn't really fair because the #6 logos are all lumped together into one.

number 6 looks like the real-deal to me

they are all good, but 6 is something paypal would freaking pay for!

Agreed.

The other ones are cool for techies but a couple of the #6 logos are like an international brand.

Too bad we can't vote on them individually. I'm sure they would get more votes.

This is what happens when the good folks at Bitcointalk decide on a logo: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=64159.40

and this is how professionals do it:

VaultofSatoshi http://99designs.com/web-design/contests/website-design-wanted-vault-satoshi-261649/brief

Cointerra http://99designs.com/logo-business-card-design/contests/logo-business-card-wanted-cointerra-217113

Bitcoin anchor http://99designs.com/logo-design/contests/bitcoin-anchor-needs-logo-235200

If we want Vertcoin to grow like Bitcoin or Dogecoin we either need a world-class logo or a meme. We don't have a meme, so we need a world-class logo.

The good folks here generally pick something that is cool or "good enough" but they don't consider the effect the logo has on the average person not on this website. We need something that is effective, not cool or unique.

Yes i agree what is going on here could be done in a more professional manor.  But that is ok, nothing has been set in stone yet. There is still time to set things up a little better.  I am not familiar with the 99designs website, but that seems like a good idea.  I bet as long as we set up a reward we could get some talented people to submit some cool designs regardless.  If we were to restart this process what is the best order of procedures?  Something as follows maybe?

1. Start thread in forums to collect donations for a few hundred vert for the logo prize
2. Once donations are collected, start thread in 99designs or somewhere else to post the logo ideas
3. When all designs are posted or after a week or so take a vote on the options

Too slow. That would take a month.

1) Someone start a contest today on 99designs
2) In the meantime the person who started the contest puts up their deposit address and we donate to them
3) Designs are submitted on the website and we pick the winner by polling members of the general public (like using mTurk, for example. or even printing out a few of the best ones and asking people on the street)

#3 is important, I feel. We are not selling Vertcoin to the people on this website. We are selling the concept to the general public (as part of the long-term goal) and thus need their input from the beginning.

With branding, "clean and simple" always wins over unique.

People are attracted to things they are comfortable with. The more 'unique' something is the less attracted they will be.

Let's give them a familiar design, not a very different design.

Alright guys, so right now I have 2 options.

1. Create a contest with a deadline and a reward.
2. Pay a professional designer for the Vertcoin logo.

The developer of VTC has the last word. So we first need to ask him about permission before we do anything.
I'll send him a PM.

I like the logo-6 (right side) with check-mark.

Check mark means something is correct and right, so use check-mark as "V" in vertcoin logo is elegant.

I Vote for logo-6 (middle and right side).

P.S: Can you separate those with check-mark from other as something like logo-8 ?!

Agreed. The contest isn't really fair because the #6 logos are all lumped together into one.

I think if we can open another contest and seprate the #6 logos individually

The logos in the OP are a joke and ppl that submit stuff should have a minimum of visual communication background.
Don't forget that the logo ect has to be scalable and the graphic designer has to be able to adapt the logo to any support and any dimensions at a latter stage.
Voting for logos made by ppl that have no clue about graphic design and communication isn't recommended.
Voting for logos in general but having no clue about graphic design and communication is smth to avoid too.

99designs is never an option. Mostly very bad designers submitting bad designs getting voted by ppl that have ZERO clue about what is good design/branding.

If you want a professional result, contact a good designstudio, explain your project and give em a few weeks to show you some propositions.
Expect to pay a fair salary, noone will make you a professional branding for 500$

If you want to keep it within the community, then put up a fair contest with a bounty and at least a 2 weeks deadline,

As already said, a logo alone is not enough to create a strong ID.
Open a contest for a refreshed Vertcoin ID (including colorpalette(green tone), logo, font)
Request .eps/.ai/.pdf vector files for all submitted designs and a small txt that defends the project.

Hey chaps! I'm the designer behind the 5th VTC logo  Grin

I understand there is a lot of turmoil with the changing of the logo. Although I'm thrilled to see it doing so well in the polls. When it comes to a free market like this, everyone is free to use whichever identification they like the most.

I've been in the industry a while, and thought the original brand could be spruced up. I'd also like to clear some things up. First of all, there are many different variations here: http://www.reddit.com/r/vertcoin/comments/1x6pys/new_vertcoin_logo/ including this http://i.imgur.com/86nEpZI.png which seemed to have the highest reception.

The Vertcoin developer has asked the community to start a poll on which logo should be used, so here we are.

The logos in the OP are a joke and ppl that submit stuff should have a minimum of visual communication background.
Don't forget that the logo ect has to be scalable and the graphic designer has to be able to adapt the logo to any support and any dimensions at a latter stage.

I exclusively work in vector, so atleast logo 5 can be scaled to whatever dimension you like. It also comes with multiple sizes and styles to fit different areas and backgrounds uniquely.

Let me know if anyone has any questions!

There's a discussion about a potential symbol for Vertcoin:

http://www.reddit.com/r/vertcoin/comments/1xddtj/vertcoin_needs_a_currency_symbol/

I think this fits into this thread as well and could help inspiration for others.

Some mockups for a potential logo with the symbol for ᗐ-coin:

Please for god's sake go with the check mark logo! The darker one please. The original logo is nice but that is not what we need. The V is too wide in the current logo. I saw the check mark logo and instantly had a positive feeling for it and new it was perfect. Whoever designed the check mark logo post your wallet address as a tip is coming your way. No scammers please. I will verify before sending

The number 6 logos are far and away the most professional and mainstream looking graphics. Yes, 5 is a nice logo, but something you'd see in a video game rather than a shop window.

6 makes VTC look like it is ready to be taken seriously as a currency, which is why it gets my vote.

I like the logos in option six, but it's a bit strange (read: biasing) to offer variations of the same thing as different options for all the others, and then offer 5 variations as one option for logo 6.

If you want to use those logos list them separately, not all lumped together like that. Or else lump together the others that are just variations.

As a little food for thought I have thrown together a couple of quick concepts which build on these evolutions.

Sometimes the 'V 'can look like a downward arrow, these mock-ups use a flowing ribbon to make the 'V' in an attempt to avoid this.

The top right of the 'V' may also be extended a little higher so it looks like it is on an upward path.

None of these logos have any meaning behind them. Can we not get a real graphics designer to make something? Right now Logo 5 is the most visually appealing but it lacks any meaning.

None of these logos have any meaning behind them. Can we not get a real graphics designer to make something? Right now Logo 5 is the most visually appealing but it lacks any meaning.

Offer a bounty, why should a "real" graphics designer, who you will only deem as "real" when YOUR sensibilities are pleased, why should a REAL graphic designer work for you for free?

Put up a bounty, offer some value for your sensibilities. If you think you have what it takes to make a proper selection for a logo for this coin, then provide some VALUE for that. Show us that you think your ability to choose a proper design ... has value, by offering a bounty.

It's obvious you have no skills, but you certainly know how to apply general criticism, but that criticism is of YOURSELF, as you are not providing any value to any other person, for YOUR desires.

You don't like ?  

Tell me what kind of modification u want.
I want to compete with/against a Master Designer (typograph [connoi]sseur) Grin

Love the two on the left(bottom and upper left). Not sure about the slogan though. The V on both logos is awesome!

The checkmark style should be match with something like "The right cryptocoin!" or something to that effect...
Like "the people's choice!"

If it has a 3D original ipad-like button/icon I think that would be even better...

Great job working on the logo. Just keep in mind in the sensitive world of Crypto Currencies, any change indicates instability and should be as mild and smooth as possible. VTC is at a breaking point where lots of panic selling is happening. Implied solidity is better than logo design.

Pyramid is a nice idea, however, as it is a Vertcoin with a V, my minds wants to flip your coin upside down so that it creates the V from the pyramid  Roll Eyes. Nice work though, but I miss the green. Metal shiny coins are everywhere, Vertcoin should not be the same as all others.

Just my 2 cents
