@Kweeky, I love your logos. They are absolutely stunning(everyone's logos are nice actually). I wish I could create something like that. I'm too lazy to try though.

Please to hear your staying :D

I have the same problem with my site, so I think I will re-brand it to just Chris Sims, rather than sims 2. Loads of other webmasters are having trouble too, I'm just annoyed about sites like Snooty Sims, they don't know what it's like :D

Looking forward to MTS

Wow. I agree with delphy, kweeky's is excellent. I like the simple look.

I don't think you can use the plumbob image. Something about maxis getting on mts's case. I like the gears idea though. It doesn't look like it'd shrink too well because the text is too thin, though. I think you might go with a stronger, bolder font with a darker color. Make the create/share/play part larger as well, i think.

Edit: wow. I wonder what just happened a few posts back. reminds me of a few threads i've started.

I think best logos are clean, simple and minimal.
For mts, i begin thinking at a symbol, because I don't like gears symbol..it's too much "work in progress" and too much "operative stuff" (sorry for my english)
Gears seems to say "we are technical worker", BUT what I want it to say is "we are creative" or "here you can find creative ideas"
So, I thought at at the symbol of "creation" and "idea" par excellence, that is the bulb, the light.
My proposal:


Below, my work in progress:

(i don't know why image here in the forum is blurred, look at the image in photobucket)
http://s598.photobucket.com/albums/...hid_logomts.jpg

Bulb is perfect also because we can use it as plumbob is used in game.
Bulb over a head, and over everything can mean that this thing is about mts.
users with bulb over head, are mts user, and so on.
And this symbol can be used as an icon everywhere.
Here in mts we have a bulb over head instead of a plumbob

I post my work in progress and my preference above, so you can see different positions. I can also change the font and colours, but first it was important to explain the concept.
Concept summary:
- symbol of "idea" and "creativity"
- unique symbol near text(clean and minimal) (like as TS, that has the plumbob symbol, unique, near text)
- symbol that can be used like plumbob, but with more meanings (creativity, ideas, new, mind, etc)

Black0rchid - Super cute idea! Love the way you've done the graphics, and the one with the lightbulb over the head rather than a plumbob is adorable. :D

ModTheSims Logo

SimsCommunity Logo





SimsAdult Logo



SimsWiki Logo



Favicons



The theme is rebirth/new dawn/what have you. I kept in mind that the site already had a mild color scheme, so I used a mild color scheme for the logos. Rather than use complex or overbearing graphics, I decided to coordinate the sites each using a single letter. This method not only allows users to quickly identify a site just by the letter in the favicon or the logo (or color), but text is also infinitely scalable to any resolution without loss of quality. The parentheses are used as a guide - focusing the user's view on the letter used as the primary mark for each site. This would allow users to quickly learn which letter coordinates to what site.

thank you HP!


I like the idea of kweeky for the heart for Sims Adult, but I think that also a red lamp can be very explicative, maybe similar to a "stop" sign..

but for a rational implementation, symbols near text must be all different or must be the same (with different color). In first case, bulb+modthesims, heart+simsadults, people+simscommunity, pen or something else + sims wiki.
In second case, blue bulb+ modthesims, redbulb+simsadults, green bulb+sims wiki, etc.
I prefer first case. Below I tried the first case all in blue, but it doesn't convince me. If you want, I try with different colours & symbols for each channels.

Quick logo I just thought up and made
I could do more detail but I'm on a very tight schedule lately. Hope you enjoy it ^^.... I could of spent more time on it though >_> So this was the results in 3 minutes of doodling and coloring.

I love Black0rchid's entries, they look so cute and creative... Yet simple and clean!

Oh and I'm glad that the site will still exist and host Sims 3 creations. ^^

GP~ I'd say maybe emphasize the "t" a bit more. It kinda gets lost in there.

Gorgeous designs there Blackorchid :D

I really like the use of the bulb (as opposed to the gears) for the mark for MTS. As you say, gears are a little bit too "WIP".

I do prefer your designs where you have used seperate illustrations for each site (the illustrations for community & adult are fantastic!) so I'd suggest going that route; builds a stronger identity for each site.

All in all awesome work!

oh and out of interest, do you use Illustrator?

Black0rchid and Jon, I think both of your entries are awesome. I can't decide which one is better but I know that Delphy now can choose between some ingenious designs!
Gproductions, I also like your approach of just taking the letters but I'd preffer other colors.

BlackOrchird, I really like your designs - but I think I prefer having different images to the left rather than just different colour bulbs - but I do love the idea of the bulb instead of a plumbob! Can you do a version of the MTS logo with the "Create it, share it, play it" in a slightly less bold font?

Jon, I like the designs - they are quite corporate looking. Could you maybe try working in the lightbulb idea and see how you go from there?

Story books are full of fairy tales, of Kings and Queens, and the bluest skies.
