Why this issue?

With creating issues and uploading media, you can reference the url in the readme.md and therefore eg. add logos/screenshots to the frontpage of the project.

More important I want an open discussion about the "logo" for the project (eg. to use it in a splash screen of an editor or so).

Current Output

I presented the idea of this logo some weeks ago to Brucey. I now remade the whole thing as pure vectors.

bmx_ng_export2

bmx_ng_export1a

Currently the projects name seems to be "bmx-ng", we could even shorten it to "BNG" ...

Collaboration

Original SVG file (done in Inkscape):
http://www.digidea.de/files/blitzmax/bmx_ng.svg

Feel free to adjust it and present the output here in this issue. Usage in other (not "bmx-ng" related projects) projects (aka "using it as a logo for something else") is not allowed.

Ideas? Opinions?

If you are not against the logo you might put it next to "maxide.bmx" so the new MaxIDE gets the new icon.
maxide.ico.zip

I think it helps if you have vanilla running next to it (other icon in the taskbar). Maybe MaxIDE should be renamed then too.. (MaxIDE NG or so?)

The lighter blue is nice, but the rocket hiding the "x" a bit too much, I think.
Perhaps we could have the rocket available separately, and how would it look to have the rocket centered behind the text?

SVG file would allow for resizing as needed (except for the image with the white outline - as this is actual not an effect but the vectors being cut away).

Something like the bottom-left, but it's probably too noisy? (and I'd lose the NG)
We kind of want something with the rocket logo (that we can then use for icons) and the text - together - however is the best way to have them together.

Or maybe the one on the bottom right (without the NG)... meh.
I suppose it depends if orange is "in" or not? :-p

Or maybe we can just have the blue text with a small orange one (or blue one with orange tail) above it (for the site landing page)...

@ polluted images
This is why I used that transparent outline (looks "white" here but is in fact transparent). That NG ... can of course get left out.
While others prefer a mono colored logo (so it works black/white) I prefer two colors - as it allows to use two main colors on the website / elements. Eg. you could have blue headlines and orange list bullets or so.

Definitely needs a new icon. I use a custom maxide icon because I work in both ide's (mostly blide though)

If the new icon is completely different, then dropping the 'NG' is ok.
I prefer the blue/white. (lower right)

Hah, I use another icon too ;-)
on xp

The Icon on top was also optimized to be used as an icon.

@ blue-white
There is always an orange in it :-)

Thanks !
I've gone with the one on the lower-right for the main logo, and the tilted blue rocket for icons :-)
