Miscellany: New Logo!

Ain't It Pretty?
Ain’t It Pretty?

So we’ve had our awesome logo here at Space Game Junkie for quite some time, and I am totally a fan of it and am appreciative of its designer, DarkInfection, for the work he did on it. However, now that we have a podcast and such, and iTunes has specific requirements for its images, I thought it could use a bit of an update. When I contacted the original artist, sadly he was having health problems and couldn’t design a new one. I figured at that point I’d just let it lie.

Enter Daniel Lynch. Daniel is a new reader to the site who really likes it (of which I’m quite grateful), and in an email, offered his services to help out the site, and one of the things he mentioned was his artistic skills, so I figured I’d ask him for some ideas on a logo, because why not? ;)

He came up with several ideas which I liked, but the one above is the one that really clicked with me and several other people I showed it to. Daniel did a fantastic job, and even refused any sort of payment in return for his work. Therefore, please join me in thanking Daniel for an awesome new logo for this and the podcast. I’m really digging it, and I hope you do too. :) Oh, and you can see the new podcast logo after the cut below.

    1. Welcome to the comments Bair I., and yay, glad you like ’em! That podcast one is sweet ain’t it?

    1. It does look familiar to me, but mostly I think it was supposed to be the A. Daniel, could you enlighten us please? :)

      1. To be completely honest about the ship it’s just a mash up of a few designs I saw on the net and designed it from scratch. It’s not really anything, thus it is what you make it. It’s meant to represent many games.

        Glad you guys like the design.=) I’m very humbled.

  1. I like the logo because the ship reminds me of an A-wing, always my favorite ship to fly in X-wing. Back in the day before ludicrously overpowered and overarmored ships like the TIE Defender existed, you had to choose whether you wanted high speed, bombing power or air superiority. Yeah I’m old, so what.

  2. I like the new logo a lot. The ship reminds me of an early Elite ship, the Viper maybe? If it’s a mashup of various designs, then this shows how iconic the Viper has become. ;-)
