Idea: bsnes logo contest

Post Idea: bsnes logo contest
I was looking at the about screen, it's pretty boring. A nice logo would jazz it up. Preferably with letters in smallcase.

Don't want to just ask people to make one and give me copyrights to it for nothing. So I was thinking about a contest or something fun.

Not sure what to give out, though. Maybe Ys PSP, or a $20 gift card. Could be fun.

Well a logo for bsnes (imo) should say bsnes on it when means

A) Open use font
B) Painted letters
C) Vector letters

As for the rest of the design is a debate about colors (could do the standard blue green yellow red)

And if there should be a basic shape to the design is also important (should it be freeform, or should a square/round logo be designed)

Curious to see what happens

I don't want (m)any restrictions. It's quite possible someone will come up with something even better if we let them go wild.

Thats art!

But instead of restrictions, do you have any subtle suggestions, perhaps something you'd like to avoid maybe like.. poo brown?

I reserve the rights to the BullShiNES logo =p

I know restrictions are not the in thing but some guidelines could be helpful (deviation from guidelines could be just as acceptable if you so desire)

I for one am drawing a blank. I like nice neat little things, symmetrical non-freeform or sprawling.

Guidelines ... geez. I don't even know what I want :P

As I said, I prefer lowercase. I'd also prefer SVG just for the sake of being able to resize it however I want. But neither are required ... I do want something very clean and professional, if that helps any. Prefer something in the 3:1 to 4:1 aspect size, good for a banner.

As for my idea ... maybe a really fancy version of this?

I like the idea of taking advantage of seamless connected letters, but the name doesn't really allow for it much.

EDIT: yeah, yours is neat too, gllt :)

I like the clef / Klein bottle (thank you wikipedia) gllt threw in there, although I don't see the relation :) Alternatively, something with β? (as in the greek letter beta)

( while I'm at it, bsnes in greek: βσνηϛ )

Edit: some corrections.

The downside is that (almost) nobody can read that :P

If we cheat a little, we can come up with this:

Would be a lot easier if you had chosen a name like DragonSNES or MagicSNES. What the heck can you do with "b"? Draw a beehive?

How about a very utilitarian logo, to match the utilitarian nature of the emulator? Courier comes to mind, or perhaps an uppercase font that looks like the lettering used on blueprints. Hmmm, or that font used on circuit boards to label components. Heh, it could even have some circuit-board-like elements around the name, like PPU1 PPU2.

Sorry for posting every other post but

My mother suggested a caveman since bsnes is supposed to be as accurate as the snes to the point of helping you understand that ancient hardware

letters are just freehand scribbles, they could be all clean and stuff.

You have great skillz, blackmyst.

Though, is the use of the non-directly-named but possibly-copyrighted character alright? :V

it's way too ambiguous to be a problem. It could be any character really.

SlowNESs, (S's can be slugs / snails), Super Nescience, HitlerSNES.

I so call reservation on Super Nescience for the fast version of bsnes :P

This could match well with my previous white-on-green logo above. Keep the letters simple, but give them a circuitry feel. Though I'd prefer a blueish tint for that.

o.O
And blackmyst takes the lead! Wow, that's seriously awesome. I really like the idea of mixing in a silent protagonist like that. Makes the logo far more epic than just letters.

Hmm, I suppose I could commission one of the better DeviantART people to make something that looks amazing yet doesn't infringe any copyrights, heh.

Not really. The name is Japanese for 'to make a mistake', but of course it's also used by the protagonist from Bahamut Lagoon. Sadly, Square released virtually no art for him -- just two or three mouthless, noseless pictures ala FF4 boxart.

Though if someone can use a lot of imagination and incorporate the cross knight (two swords) aspect of him, that'd be cool.

Sorry I meant to give everyone a nice official picture, but my laziness and stupidity caught up with me.
