Option A


Option B


Yes I am being intentionally obscure because I would prefer results based on your first visual reaction.

For wasting your time I will give 1 BTC to a random person in this thread.  Just post a reply after you vote.  Be sure to post a reply as I can't see who voted.  You don't have to pick the winning design to win so just vote based on your own personal first reaction.  Thanks.


On edit:
To make the random drawing a little more fair I already used random number generator to generate a decimal between 0 & 1.  I hashed it so that is can be verified after the fact but still remains unknown to anyone but me.

SHA-256 hash of pre-generated random number:
ADC24B56FCFF884B5DC63ACF28A890DC1E64399B760752C4FCEF7A96C099CDF3

Winner = ROUNDDOWN(pre-generated rand / # of posts in thread*)

*excluding all my posts and any duplicates.

Example:
IF the pre-generated rand was 0.5225 and there are 14 unique replies.   0.5225 * 14 = 7.315  Winner is the 7th reply.  Not the pre-generated rand isn't 0.5225 (but it could be 0.52251 Smiley ).

I picked the first one because it's more realistic.

Since there are more votes than posts as a reminder if you want a shot at the 1 BTC random drawing you also need to post in the thread.  

This forum's software doesn't make visible voting possible.  Grr.

I think Matt is Wright. At first I was thinking the blue one, but in orange. And why isn't there an orange option, you racist bastard?  Grin

Wouldn't that be colorist?  Once I settle on a design I may have artist try a couple different colors.  My wife told me to go with blue because it implies strength, security, establishment.  I have no idea if that is true but it sounded good. Smiley

You might find it interesting what "they" say about Orange

I choose A  -  the other looks like water is flowing off the top edge Smiley

Your wife is very smart and her reasoning behind suggesting blue are very valid, but blue is not typically a color associated with cryptography or microchips. Might I recommend a touch of green?

Hmm.  When I read your response I was like "green? I don't know"  Then I saw your mock up and I got to say I like it.  Also did you add some "texture" or was that already in the design and color just made it pop?  If I end up using it I will throw you a bonus genuine Bitcoin (in equally good but used condition).

On edit:.  Looking at the A design, B design, and your modified "C" design I think maybe A is less popular simply because the grey on grey lacks some "pop" that the blue in B provided.

Stop the presses! (pun intended) Aren't we all forgetting that Justin Bieber's favorite color is PURPLE?

Don't pay me anything, please. I didn't even check to see if the image was released for Creative Commons sharing.

I grabbed it from here http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_fFl015dzuoc/SNJ2G2ISmaI/AAAAAAAAAp0/mLUGxEEdrWA/s400/Circuitboard.png



Then I changed the perspective,

Dropped the opacity down to 48%,

Erased the path over the T

I am sure you can do better with some effort.

Thanks though!

Well your call I wasn't intending to use that exact logo but it kinda pushed my thinking into a different direction and I find new ideas are always worth a Bitcoin.  How about if I ever get this venture off the ground I will buy an ad in your magazine instead?

I choose option B, as it looks a tad bit better than option A. Have to agree though, it does look like there's water flowing off the edge. Better get your designer (or yourself) to fix that!

I also prefer option B and agree that the "T" isn't quite right.

Still around.

I would vote C.
B is better because of the color. But the T appears deeply engraved which looks wrong on a chip. With design A it appears superposed on the chip, which makes a tad more sense. Id combine them, keep the color but make it look as its on top of the chip, not deeply engraved.

What about Matt's modified design
