Title: Evolved Freebird Games Logo + To the Moon Mobile coming soon~
Post by: Reives on March 05, 2017, 09:59:27 PM
Hey all, hope all's been well! Things have been hectic as usual recently with keeping up with Finding Paradise's schedule, and To the Moon's upcoming mobile launch by X.D..
(https://freebirdgames.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Ffreebirdgames.com%2Fimages%2FPhotoalbum--Cheer-and-Carry.gif&hash=3cc11e05dda38e440451efb51418c5da)

In the mean time, I just wanted to give a preview of Freebird Games' new logo to be used in Finding Paradise and on wards. :) For those who's been around for a while, you might remember the first Freebird logo where the F is a bird, and people kept not seeing it and reading it as "reebird Games". :P

The oldest version of the logo:
(https://freebirdgames.com/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.freebirdgames.com%2Fimages%2FFreebirdGames_Logo-1.png&hash=f612a7ca634c587471cda810406ca2eb)


Then came the 2nd one, which is the one used in the current versions of the games.

The second version of the logo:

. . . So now, if it were a Pokemon, this is the 3rd and likely final version of Freebird Games' logo. :)

The new, updated Freebird Games logo:

Looking nice and sleek! Although the old logos will ALWAYS have a place in my heart, no matter what. I just love the old logos way too much, because so much nostalgia. But I can see why it's important to upgrade logos. And the new logo looks really nice.  :)

I don't know, I think I need to get used to it.

But... I liked the second one :noahtear:

I'll be honest, the new logo looks like some sort of shipping/flying company at first glance :deepstuff: it's gonna take some time to get used too.

Edit: Btw, these gifs are adorable:

Same for me o
I think the second edition was fine. But the new one is more like a a bird of paradise, so it's kinda fitting for the new game.

Megaevolution? ;p

It does take some getting used to, although that was the case when switching from the first to second back then too. :) I really liked the second one, although the bird doesn't quite have the "free" sense to it (looking down, posture, etc.). This one has both the benefit of a free soaring feeling with direction, and a design artistry that the first one lacked.

Once it settles in, it should be a great representation~ :Evapple:

Yes, the new bird itself is fine. I think the problem lies in the colours. The new logo is brighter in relation to the previous ones, which isn't bad, just different. And it should especially fit Finding Paradise with its warm colour palette.

Ooh, I see what you mean! Hm, perhaps we could find the best of both worlds -- I tried a little desaturation on the top cyan part of the wings; how does this look compared to the original colours? :)

Desaturated top wings:

Post by: Thunderbird on March 07, 2017, 10:29:47 AM
Yes, that does make a difference ^^
I think the desatured version is less intrusive.

The new logo looks lovely! Colors remind me of parrots and the like (birds of paradise).
When viewing it on a black background, you can see part of the ring surrounding the words passing through the bird because it's semi-transparent. I think it may look a little better if it faded out before that point in the same way it appears to on a white background, but that's just my opinion.

Also, this is just out of curiosity - what did the logo look like before the other multicolored feathers/wings were added and it was just the dark blue one coming out from the bird?

Yes, I like the newer version better. Now if you could also make orange less orange, it'd be perfect.

The saturated version popped out so much I kept thinking a bird was attacking my screen. Now my monitor is broken. Luckily you desaturated it before it could attack someone else.

I hope the sound effect works with it. The SFX is pretty iconic. :)

I, too, really like the new new logo! :D

Birdie won't be flying over Europe, it seems...

Despite my love for bright colours, I do like the slightly edited version :)

Other than the colours, I still felt like there was something off and I found what it was. The eye placement.

Original (desaturated):

Changed by me:

What do you think?
Title: Re: Evolved Freebird Games Logo + To the Moon Mobile coming soon~
Post by: Thunderbird on March 08, 2017, 10:51:38 AM
What do you think?

Imo your version looks like it's taking a turn to the left / into the background.

I don't think the original eye placement is wrong, picture for reference:

What the hell? Can't unsee.

Now when I look at both of them I can almost see the motion.

Ooohhh, looks interesting!! I do like the colors on it.

Glad to know that progress is being made.  :seraismile:

Hey. Haven't been here in a long while. I do like the new logo. However, I like the one that is less saturated. The original one feels like it attacks my screen. Only one thing bothers me about the design   which is the part between the body and the wings. It looks too sharp. I made a modification

Modified:

Nice new logo!

While the current typegace looks good, I think it is Times New Roman (certainly looks like it), wouldn't it be better for branding to have a less commonly used typeface?

It is not TNR. The letters are more rounded, especially the lowercase 'f' is different. I think the font fits quite well, too. It is rounded with sharp serif, just like the bird is round with spiky wing feathers.

Post by: Eli on March 12, 2017, 04:25:09 AM
You are right, it more looks like the Times font Apple bundles with macOS.

Post by: Kyo on March 12, 2017, 05:03:17 AM
I agree nevertheless. I was focused on the bird itself, so I didn't realize it then, but the font does look rather ordinary.
Title: Re: Evolved Freebird Games Logo + To the Moon Mobile coming soon~
Post by: Thunderbird on March 12, 2017, 05:11:47 AM
No need for an extrafancy font imo, but I would change this:

When viewing it on a black background, you can see part of the ring surrounding the words passing through the bird because it's semi-transparent.

Probably by erasing the parts that are behind the bird.

Ahh thanks for the heads up and revision suggestions, guys! I've been trying to catch up to schedule with FP so been a little distracted (currently just about done all the first-round memory scenes minus the stuff from the last Act).

Gonna try suggestions (eye-placement, body-wing connecting parts, & font) and take it up with the artist soon! :gothat!:

Those curved lines (that look like parentheses rotated 90 degrees, hehe) at the top and bottom, I suggest could be a little darker.  Lastly, the part where the left wing connects to the body? It looks like that space should be smaller, i.e. left wing closer to the body.
