I look forward to get an awesome new logo (the "pancake" isn't really appealing)
 I jump in with 2 BTC

For the persons complainting about the current logo not existing in high resolution, here it is in SVG.


I would've uploaded it to the wiki, but it didn't let me because it doesn't allow SVG files to be uploaded Roll Eyes

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.

Something along these lines?




Maybe, "BITCOIN.  The Fed Mutilator."

Or something.

I've not seen a design competition as high as $300 here before, why not try to bring the designers to this community instead of outsourcing the project?

I've been playing around with a 3D logo. Here is the preliminary result:

I don't know, old logo is good enough for me, I guess it's already recognized very well. This reminds me of the Moneybookers changing it's name to Scrill and everybody still say Moneybookers. However, I understand urge to change and to be different, for the same reason I have created my personal logo which represent me on this forum.

This thread inspired some sketching.  I could easily develop these ideas or others in Illustrator if I had some more bitcoins.   Wink

Abandon this.

The OP said:
The absolutely biggest problem I have with the old logos is I can never find a high resolution image.

psy has done what was needed:

For the persons complainting about the current logo not existing in high resolution, here it is in SVG.


The problem was low resolution.  That problem was solved.  Unless there is another problem ("pancakes" just seems like an issue of personal taste, which is no reason to redesign) reinvention for reinvention's sake is not a good use of time or money..

Additionally it is unlikely that the community will adopt it. There is already so much material centered towards the old logos.

it has been available as a vector version for ages.

paying for a bitcoin logo in usd is ridiculous.

Have you guys forgotten about this?: http://www.ecogex.com/bitcoin/
Building a new brand identity requires starting from the ground up, and I think getting rid of the BTC is the first thing to do. (No offense to theymos, who created the nice little forum button for that symbol.)

I think the alternate 'Ƀ' is far more desirable because it is less obvious and less likely to confuse with (for instance) the thai baht, and others.

Ƀ is also extremely very ugly compared to BTC.
฿ and BTC looks similar? I absolutely don't think so.
So where do we have to pay to stop the nonsense and keep the old one?

The problem with BTC is that isn't the easiest thing to hand write.

i don't think that BTC logo (orange one) itself is a problem. We just need more shiny buttons an icons for people to use.

I don't know about shiny.  The industry is moving away from all that bling and shininess and trying to imitate real world materials and stuff like that.  Things are moving toward, well, this:

It is possible to redo a brand identity for Bitcoin, and make a better one, but I'm very skeptical that one would be done that is better than the current version. The current brand falls in the category of "pretty decent" and has already gained wide acceptance. If I saw a new brand that was clearly superior, however, I'd be happy to adopt it and advocate it.

If you're going to have it redone professionally (and no, someone on the forum with some photoshop skillz won't cut it) then it's going to cost at least $1k and perhaps $2-3k. If you're spending less, then you're likely getting something that is somewhat amateur and a branding revision cannot be amateur. This cost is purely for the brand identity... not any "flyers or banners" etc. Those will cost extra if you want professionalism.

Further, "ideas" for the branding cannot effectively be tossed into this forum thread, and the decision making process cannot be democratic, or we'll end up with a mess. The way to do it properly, is to find a highly skilled branding artist, pay the money, and let them work. It is an extensive process and ought not be underestimated.

And I'll be highly critical of everything, because I hold very high standards for Bitcoin Smiley



The marketing manager at my work complains about this all the time.  He will be hired to help create branding or a new logo and after everyone gets their say in the message is diluted and split so many ways the new "brand" isn't effective at all.  Completely agree that for it to be done right the consensus should be on who to hire and then let them do what they do best.

Usually then there will be a few coherent rough draft samples presented and it would be up to whoever to select the one they thought fit bitcoin the best.

What we have currently seems decent enough, will definitely be interested to see what comes of this though if enough is collected to get it done right.
