Our new logo

pbr


We've had the same logo ever since we started our website in 2011, and I've been wanting to redesign it for a while now. I didn't think that a block textured by someone at Mojang should be our logo, I wanted to make my own. I thought the old logo was too 'noisy', it had too many colors. So everywhere that Redstone was visible on the block, I replaced it with a simple white color. The three dimensional figure is still visible in the new logo, but there is no border. I like the logo, but do you? Let us know if we should keep it!

I really don't feel like this captures the theme of Powered by Redstone at all, I mean, that could be anything, diamond, iron, gold, even coal.

I like it, it looks newer and more simple. :) And it was added on my birthday. But I have to agree, maybe add some red so it doesn't look like diamonds, or iron, of coal or gold.

I don't like it because Powered By Redstone is the name of the website. The icon looks more like powered by clouds. The redstone ore is what makes your website distinguishable and unique. I like the old icon much better.

um thats not redstone, the name of the site is "POWERED BY REDSTONE" so maybe find a more apropriate logo. it looks nice, but doesn't go with site name

It's ok, but it doesn't really go with the name "Powered By Redstone"...And it kinda looks like quarts...

Absolutly not. It doesn't resemble your site. Something that relates to Redstone would be better. Maybe a group of rocks colored red with electricity bolts coming off them?

It looks interesting, in the way how it has the feel of something in the third dimension, but it has two main drawbacks:
1) It can resemble a 2d object if looked at blankly
2) It can represent coal, diamond, gold ore as well as Redstone, It needs a bit of red in it, in my opinion

Yeah, it's just not redstone. Why not something like a piece of redstone dust? Or mabe a torch lighting up a sign saying Powered By and then a redstone dust. I dunno but at first I thought this was a joke but then I noticed it was may lol. And besides this is still a Mojang (R) design.

I agree with everyone else. This really just doesn't seem to fit the blog properly. It seems a bit...awkward.

The alternative would be to make a custom texture pack, and use the redstone ore texture you create and also I think Nova could use something to make it more unique,

Leave it like it is, with the white and all. But add the border of the block in a red. and border the white with red too.

This just doesn't look cool. The old logo was better. You need some red in there.

I can't help but to feel it's a bit ambiguous... Maybe it should be red instead of white? I love it though! Very simple and unassuming :)

Could you have ''powered by redstone'' spelled in redstone dust with an interactive lever that when flicked ''powers'' the dust lighting up the logo?

Probably don't need any more ideas...but what the heck: how about keepting the logo as you have it now (white on black, no border) but add a pure red "explosion" behind it. That would get the color red back in as well as give the cube some definition; finally, it communicates the idea of "power/electricity" somewhat. Just my $0.02. Cool to get all the feedback.

Yeah I agree with everybody. It is cool and all, but it would make more sense to change the white into a glowing red. That would look better. White doesn't fit it. I'll help work on it if need be.

I think that should be the logo but just scrap the border and it will have the same feel of simplicity as the current logo and captures the power of redstone :D
