As the title says...

I'm thinking of another slight re-design as I can't find any bloody banners to fit in the horizontal banner space across the top of the site and I figured it might be time to investigate the possibility of a logo tweak.

All ideas will be considered.

Something like T_W's excellent DeadPixelsOnToast logo would be awesomeness itself.

Any form whatsoever.

In fact if someone wants to re-do the whole site...

:P

How about some breasts tit-wanking a Wiimote. Now that's what I call strap-on action!

Just done a quick sketch of an arcade stick and 4 buttons with AATG on them. Actually I just drew one button and roughly indicated where the other 3 lived.

Will scan it or re-do it digitally later.

Oooh, a close-up of a d-pad with the current AATG lettering embossed on the 4 directions.

My idea with lots of pictures of nekkid men and the sites new direction (All About the Gayers) probably wouldn't work would it?

If I can use female gayers, I'll give it a go.

Something simple and pixelated; maybe like this?

I like the second one if you ditch the heiroglyphics.

Heh, I only just recognised the hieroglyphs as the letters AATG.

It'd be nice to get shot of all traces of the old logo and go with something entirely new. Just my opinion, which as ever, can be taken with a pinch of salt.

I've got an idea inspired by various Olympic and Magazine logo articles done by the BBC. The theme is "People pulling together to open a portal inviting you to a community of gamers".

Now i just need to draw it's full majesty.

If the logo wasn't supposed to be reasonably small and I could draw better I'd draw the earth being surrounded by controllers.
A bit like this, just with controllers instead of hands. Two controllers on the bottom and one from the top.

I'm sensing a rather goatse-flavoured theme coming to the fore here. I are worried!

Might as well go and redesign the whole site as well!

Seriously though, I do like the font style - and I reckon it would go very well with a new d-pad design logo, what with it sort of resembling grooves. That's just my opinion though. T_W's design is a good idea but looks uncannily like a slimmed-down Xbox. :)

Also I think it's been done before, that crosspad design but I'm struggling to remember where.

Anyway I'll shut up as T_W's efforts far outstrip my own.

(btw I think Hairy's actually after a whole site redesign. The logo's just part one).

Maybe too obvious.... and it needs a little love - particularly the font!

I sketched something similar to that, but yours looks better than my scrawlings.

Are we generally down on pixel art? I did a nice pixel-y one last night.

I love pixel art and would do the whole website in that style if a) I was capable and b) it wasn't apparently so cliched.

I tried sketching some but you really need graph paper for that or doing it directly in MS Paint :P.

The main problem I'm having is fitting 'AATG' into something more than just those letters or conveying the notion of 'All About the Games' in a simple image.

How about an image of a Power Rangers style mech, built from consoles trampling through a city built from video game media. NES carts and DVDs and the like.

I do like pixel art too but it is a bit of a cliche.

I like the console mech idea but could end up being a bit too fussy. One good thing about Spanky's original logo is that it's nice and uncomplicated and lends itself well to both print and web page. Shows the bloke does know what he's doing, even if he's a big fat sweaty cockgobbler.

Something that may be a bit obvious, but an extension of the current logo would be to have a random logo pop up out of four, which would be the face buttons of all the current consoles (and the arrow buttons on the PC) which have A, A, T & G on them.

Slightly obsessed with black and red at the mo so started off with a basic...

sketch straight into Flash

Then started mucking about in Photochop:

Variant 1

Variant 2

I've got this burning urge to do a 50 logo spurt like I did for our Centenary logo at work so I'll get the pad and pens out and see what 'appens.

Black and Red would make the site look like a Warez / Pron site though :)
