Graphic design - branded icons

Post by Stratego (dev) » Wed Feb 20, 2019 8:46 am

I see that all of AOs/AOf/AOW icons are not so nice being transparent (AOF is not but only with black background)

i thought if AO* games should have the same background (like a golden or blue backplate or something) indicating they are all in the same Age Of brand.

what do u think?

something like these but nicer:


(i can send XCF files via email, that has the background on separate layer)

thanks!

This is a neat idea. That would make the icons stand out a bit more.

Is there a reason for the logo on the original AoS shield? If so, that would be cool to include in the universal background
Thanks!

Topic Revive- To know what we're doing here, just read through this link- http://www.androidutils.com/forum/viewt ... 7b2#p84981

I'd like people to post some new ideas for logos here, ones the preferably are more pixelated, have shield and coat of arms, and fit the style of the game they represent.

If I can, I'll start work on a few drafts for people to modify.

We should perhaps keep that blue background like in the above images, but change the icon itself.

nice!
but actually i very like the axe icon - you dont like it?
here i only suggested a common background (the blue is not that professional, it was my 10 minute attemp)

...

from next glance on your image i think you suggest to make almost the same icon for all games, that is also a good idea!
(please dont use pink as it will not be "teamcolored" we need to use the final coloring of the icon.

so your concept making 2 weapons on a shield in both AOF / AOS games - isn't it?

Essentially, yes. I always thought it would be fitting if each game, AoS, AoF and AoWW had a similar "coat of arms" icon, with behind two crossed weapons emblematic of the represented game.

The picture I posted wasn't much for an actual proposition, rather to just show the concept behind my idea. Though I did intend for the shield to be purple, or some shade of violet.
