Default Re: I think GURPS needs a logo

I don't think we can post images here (can we??), so I horked up my hexagon-based idea onto my site.

For the curious and bored: http://www.gamesdiner.com/2018/10/un...ess-gurps-logo

In short, it's a die showing three faces: the textual GURPS logo, the monocular pyramid, and the four-spotted face of a die (representing 4E). For the lulz.

It does need some color, some pizazz. But thanks!

Web post edit: I improved my design a tad... and added a second design from a kind contributor! A mock-up that looks promising, though I'm surprised it doesn't have shields and Vikings in it...

The top should be a "1," and it should just be a single eye.

The entire die should be a color. I'd almost say the fora orange/yellow, but I really hate this color.

For Douglas' idea, the 3d6 should be, again, showing all 1's. Most logo-D20s show a 20, because that's what they want to see. For us, it would be all 1's.

I went with 3 - Pyramid - 6 as in "3d6"

I do like the 4 in tbone's idea as "fourth edition" though.

For what its worth.
I like the 4 in TBones idea and I prefer it overall.
Douglas's just seems too busy, though it would make a better picture, I think the first makes a better logo.

I find your ideas cliched. The logo should be a heroic image of Dr Kromm fighting a horde of blueberry muffins on an infinite flat plane with a Lakota katana. Or something. And give him ice-skates and a cabaret costume.

But seriously, I think using dice in a logo doesn't really differentiate from a dozen other brands.

And the muffins are psychic.

I second this.

Get us some photos, Kromm. We'll photoshop the rest.

Some ideas:
1) One 3D dice with pyramid logo on one side
2) 5 dices with letters G, U, R, P and S in a row or pyramid
3) Classic 2D eye pyramid with some building blocks as d6 sets

Frictionless? In a vacuum?
