The logo is good, it looks slick, sound and healthy.
It does not imply anything that could be interpreted as bad or aggressive.

If some think it looks like a pancake? So what, pancakes are good most people like pancakes.

It might be simple but it gives it credibility, makes it look quality and fresh. Polished.
Not overworked as something done by a photoshop or 3d learning teenager.


K.I.S.S
Keep it simple stupid

We've reached the amount of pledges we need.

We're going ahead and designing now. I'll provide updates as they are made available.

Now's a good time for suggestions! Smiley

Thank you everyone for your pledges, you'll be contacted in a week or so (about halfway through the design process). At this time I'll provide a pledge BTC address and an update on the progress. You'll get to see where the design is going before anyone else!

Hopefully we'll have something amazing to show soon!

Thanks,
-Jon

Well, I have one suggestion and it's one word. Simplicity. The "bling bling" logos are cool and all but they are not good for universal use. We need a logo that's good for all purposes. It needs to be simple and cool at the same time.

Designing a logo that is better than the current orange logo is not going to be easy but it is possible. I wish best of luck with that.

Added to the suggestion list.

I agree, simple is better for logos.

I suggest holding a logo design contest on 99designs.

It's good place to get some professional looking logos for a good price.  Minimum award is $300. I think we should be able to collect that much.

The advantage of using 99designs is that we can access a much bigger pool of (semi)professional designers than by just posting a bounty on this forum.  We will also have several designs to pick from and we can do a community vote to decide the winner.

Would be cool to have a 99designs type of site that runs off of bitcoin.

Would anyone use it? Perhaps the people that are spectators could donate to runner up designs so that they get something too for their hard work?

Alright, I want that prize money, I'll make no fuzz about it.

You ask for it, you get it.

This logo

- is simple and yet has a lot in it
- combines the original BTC symbol with the new Ƀ to make everybody happy (for chrissake)
- is 2-color black&white and easily invertible
- adds some mystic appeal and secrecy using hidden symbolism
- scalable version will be made available (if credit comes flying my way)
- can be worked into any shiny bling bling (pancake coloring possible also)
- resembles a COIN(!)
- looks both techy and ancient
- has the ability to convince a yet untapped Eastern market




The Chinese good luck symbol btw. coined the future expression "Do you have some luck for me?" (pictures of my time machine will be made available in the future)

Here, I made some animations too!




I was thinking about incorporating my donation address into the logo (possibly to the right of the B) kinda to make it look official or something, like the serial numbers on banknotes. But I don't have a tool to do curved lettertypes with, yet. I will do this if there is popular demand..

The 1's and 0's (which represent the timestamp in the genesis block, as mentioned here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=92954.msg1026004#msg1026004) can easily be replaced by corresponding political or religious symbols depending on your worldview such as pentagrams, swastikas, david stars, pyramids or crop circles. Whatever you fancy.

If it were possible to incorporate a sound effect into a .PNG or .GIF I would've done that using a foreboding gong or perhaps a science-fiction swoosh-sound. But I guess you can't have everything..

Well let me try this. Something totally different than others so some may not like it.
But some constructive criticism is always welcome. I tried to mimic the bitcoin B with simple shapes.
Used the orange of the 'old' logo and combined it with an other matching color. Gives it a calm impression imo.
Hope you like it  Wink

Thanks!
It is indeed abstract but this also gives it a instinct look. If you see this as a logo in your system tray you would identify it quite easily.
Might try some other things if I get a good idea.

Also made a version only using grey. A black/white version needs some work because it doesn't really work the way I made the file in vectors atm.

Why is there a trademark? I like it, but its kind of close to the blutooth logo imo, try something more octogon-y

+1 the symbol on the left is a bit abstract, but I think you are on to something. The font choice is awesome. The colors look good.

I was not a fan of this thread at all, but then this logo was posted. It is actually GOOD.

I do not think the logo needs changing, and 99.9% of the alternatives are significantly worse than the original. However, Timbo925's design is badass and worthy of at least slight consideration.

I'd remove the TM for a number of reasons Wink

The presentation is super professional. Notice the very subliminal gradient on the white background? It makes the entire logo look so much better. (I just learned something new.)

I don't like the lettering though...

The big tail on the 't' looks like a 'u' and made me think 'buttcoin' when I first saw it.

I like it, it also fits symbolizing the blockchain. I don't like the font, I think the ubuntu font is better, but the abstract logo is perfect.
