I hope you don't mind me being critical about this.

It's not a very clear and strong logo imo, not easy to see the orange and green combo creating the B.
The kerning doesn't seem 100% right on both lines of text.

Also are you guys serious about using a D for a Bitcoin symbol?

This is a confusing thread.
Sorry for my negativity, it's just my opinion.

Edit: Just reading back a bit and discovering that something like 50btc was spent on this??? I'm shocked!

50BTC? WTF!? I work with local arts that would do 10 times better for 50 BUCKS.

What are you guys talking about?
The designs posted on this thread aren't seeing a dime from the pledge of the OP, AFAIK.
The funding request was made so Coinabul could pay his designer to make a new logo.

Also, where is the logo with the D, Lucidize?

Nobody received any btc as far as I now. But most competitions online have prices around 300 $. And they do. 't design for bitcoin.

I spend a lot of time designing and didn't get any btc for my effort. Only hope and way to earn some bitcoin is mine is better then the designers one so OP picks mine or some other people tip me.

I don't think his designer will work for free Wink


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

True but if the designer does not come up with a design that OP likes. It may be possible he doesn't need to pay. At least that is how I do it when I design for people. Maybe I'm to good? :-P

if not I did a lot of work for nothing :-P

I am in the middle of a project right now. But when I am done I want to set up a 99designs type of website using BTC that will ALSO allow for DONATIONS to the SUBMISSION!

No artist should have to work for free to gamble at a chance of winning. That is just pointless.

Anyone in here that agrees and wants to help either with ideas, or code or graphics PM me. I don't bite Smiley

He may end up with a great design in his own opinion and the rest of the world may think it's crap and don't use it.
Bitcoin isn't a company after all, no one can force a given logo on us. Most likely I'll just continue to use the one we have now.
It's simple, you look at it and you know it's Bitcoin. Good enough for me. Hence why I didn't pledge even a bitcent.

Again perhaps you would like to help build this new site I have in mind. Where ALL submissions have a chance for some coinage.

I think Rugatu already does a good job on that. Probably there won't be the need to duplicate work that is already done.

Can I get a version like the one in my avatar, but with?



I want one that says:

    BITCOIN
  Get GoXXXed.





LOL This is bad ass.  That's my new avatar.  I sent you 0.37 BTC. (Had to round off the wallet to an even number)

On the previous page there is mention of this "" - maybe it was a joke I didn't realise.
On other pages here I saw a request of needing 44btc, that is why I thought it was a funded project.

We're not that far off people! Please pledge!

The rising price has brought down the cost! Only 44BTC is needed. We're 17BTC away.

In my opinion it won't help promote Bitcoin, but rather cause confusion with different logotypes being used.

It doesn't bother me, I wasn't trying to cause a stir. I just wanted to provide feedback about the colours, font and the kerning.

Good luck with the rest of the promo ;-)

Hi all.  Made a forum account so I could join the discussion...

I too am a designer (though I specialise in icons) - I was talking about how I hat the pancake icon for the Mac client with people in IRC; it's truly awful, very amateurish, and the drop-shadow cuts off, it just looks bad.
This led to discussing this thread and so I thought I'd come join in hope you all don't mind.

With regards the proposed redesign shown here, I don't mind the font, and the white background is fine, but I realy don't like the IBM-style B.  It doesn't nothing for me.  It's a good design, please don't take offence at my criticism, but I just don't see why change from the coin?
The coin logo, albeit in serious need of redesign and refinement, is a recognised brand,  Bitcoin has evolved leaps and bounds and is well recognised in a lot of places now, by the coin with the B.  Sure, change the B, change the design of the coin, and PLEASE for the love of god ditch the orange blank pancake for something a bit more stylish, hell I'll even have a throw at it myself, but changing thd entire brand is something you only do if you have a real need to - e.g it's gotten "contaminated" by bad press, or is very outdated by modern standards (hardly applies here!).

As I said, please don't take offence, but a) it's too much like a credit-card company logo or the like, b) it conveys nothing about the brand, in this case, bitcoins (whereas the coin instantly conveyed to people it's a currency) - take away the name underneath and make it stand on it's own, which any logo should be able to do, and it could be anything and finally c) the colours are very jarring.  Green and orange are rarely two colours that mix well.

I'd say redesign the coin logo to work in all formats (again, as any logo should), and keep the rest the same.  The coin has branding, don't throw that away.

Lastly, paying someone 50BTC to design seems a bit steep though; I mean, sure don't get me wrong, when I design for a client I usually charge about $300-400 US for a design, but this is an open-souce movement, and there are plenty of people, as demonstrated by Timbo, and myself, with the talent skill and time to do it for free....

Sorry for the long-ass post...

Bitcoin is not owned by anyone so basically it's possible to have different logos in use, however it's more effective if we use the same logo.

I personally hate the colors in the Timbo logo, although I do like the colors in this version: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=91068.msg1061020#msg1061020

Not liking the new B too much but I could get used to that. It's a good logo (the orange color one, the green one is horrible) though. Not good enough to make me stop using the current Bitcoin logo, unfortunately.

Although the BTC is recognized and has built a brand, I don't particularly like it, and prefer the latin B with horizontal bar. Additionally, the latin B has no pre-existing connotations that I know of that we need to worry about, whereas the existing B is the symbol for the existing Thai Baht fiat currency.

This BTC is the Bitcoin and this is Thai Baht. Spot the differences

Sorry for the rant

Love the work some people did here and hope Coinabul picks one of these logos  Grin

I don't usually say this out loud, but BTC looks like an aerial view of a woman with large breasts and very small arms, beheaded. Headless bodies are more disconcerting to me than sodomy, so +1 for the Ƀ.

The Ƀ, whatever it is, doesn't display on my system. The "currency sign"¤, and the custom font BTC however, do.

I recommend asking me for a signature from my GPG key before doing a trade. I will NEVER deny such a request.

There's a character for an abstract triangle-ish "B"? Can I get a screenshot? Or someone please tell me which font to install
