Now that I have reinstalled Photoshop, I'd like to get a little more creative with the appicon and other graphics. I like the purple & white, but a more creative logo would be neat.

Someone wanted to mock up some new graphics, though I haven't heard back from them yet. I'll leave this here.

I have the ai file, so you can scale it without losing quality and change it to any aspect ratio!

@fleksy Do you need a transparent version or any background color changes in the logo? Some people were telling me that there's too much white space.

@Fleker That's the good part, it's transparent by default! All I had to do was change how it's exported!

Yes, but a similar design to that with correct dimensions and no drop shadow would make a nice banner.

In the meantime, I'll take the design as is and replace the current small icons in the app.

New icon design is really great however I thought the app was called Cumulus TV. The new icon has CUMULULUS TV with an extra UL in it.

@Fleker I was mostly messing around with it but the idea was it to look like a TV with the grey background and the word being "lit up" by the shadow.

The notches along the border don't match the aesthetic very well.

I actually don't like it. I like the current graphics which are very
modern. No offense but this icon set and going seem like a huge step
backward. I'd like to just retain the purple current one.

@alanmcramer The current ones are so ugly it's stupid! It also is poorly made (shadows not lined up) and is too generic.

Nop it. Let's not have this degrade into arguments. I'm not the best designer, which is why I've been lenient with switching out logos. However Alan has a point that it keeps switching and so messes with the brand.

If people don't like this new logo as much as the current design, then I probably shouldn't change it.

Let's keep the discussion civil and work together to create great iconography and branding.

@alanmcramer Sorry, I was in severe pain when I wrote that due to a injury and wasn't thinking what I was writing as I was on medicine. However, my points were valid about it being generic and not lined up properly. A drop shadow is not supposed to start underneath the logo, it's supposed to be behind it like mine as it casts... well a shadow.

I will admit, my logo isn't the best; but compared to the other logo... That one is just too generic that nobody would remember it. Also, you said mine doesn't represent a TV set; well the current logo does even less. It's just text with a shadow. The logo has to be your first impression. I know many people that would look at that one and think that it's a crummy app when it isn't.

So, even if you don't use my logo... The current one still needs tweaking to improve the aesthetic of it and make it less generic. I would suggest to:

  1. Fix the shadow
  2. Maybe add some "antennas" since they symbolize TV for lots of people.
  3. Maybe add a shape around it like a old-fashioned TV from the 1950s/60s.
