[Poll] Help us pick the Wasteland 2 logo

Postby Brother None » April 26th, 2013, 4:36 pm

We've been posting versions of the Wasteland 2 logo and tweaking it based on feedback. On top of the great suggestions we've gotten, we also received some good submissions from the community, and we've selected a few that we think could work. These images - especially the fan-submitted ones - are still subject to minor tweaks and changes, but we wanted your opinion on which one you feel is best.

Keep in mind the logo could go on the T-shirts and its design should stand out for that. Colors will be changed depending on T-shirt color requirement

I love logo version 3. That would be my pick.

Very smooth, slightly mysterious. Kind of dark and quiet. A nice bit of understated post apocalyptic for my tastes.

There are things I like about the last two, something that would appeal to old school fans and I like that it's beaten down and rusty looking but something feels off about them when I keep looking at the "2" in them.

Huh, you could submit your own logos? And no one told me anything... :(

2,3 and 4 are really nice. I like the third one best, though.

Definitely the third one for me. It's the classic Wasteland typography, after all.

3, easily. Classy, minimal, reminiscent of the original box and most importantly: NOT trying too hard.

Yes, I will have to go with the third logo as well. Simple and straightforward.

3 all the way. Not too shiny but not too shabby.
But, tbh, 5 is a good one too.

If I were just to point at one and go, "This!", I'd also pick #3.

BUT - there are details I like about all of them.

#4: Actually I think this one looks the best at a glance: I love the color and the font. But as you know I don't like "WASTELAND2", and I also think the different colored 2 is lame.

#1: I LOVE the big, dark star centered behind the whole thing. Much better than the badge under the 2.

So if you took the color and font from #4, put a space between the D and the 2, and put a large, dark badge behind it, I think that would look best.

I'd buy the t-shirt of #3, though. The more I look at it, the more I like it.

So far, it's looking like #3 has it. I'm going to have to cast my vote for #4, though. It could use a bit of refinement, but it's the design that I like best.

I'd say Logo 3 with the Ranger Badge from the second one.

Yeah, I gotta be different :P

Pretty hard to see 3 looking any good on a pale background though. I do hope they keep it for the collector's box. The texture work and colour scheme on Mr Ferreiro's submission is fantastic. I liked inXile's second attempt but No.4 nails it I think.

Man torn between #3 and #5. I would LOVE to see a version of #5 with the Wasteland 2 background that #3 uses.

'Nother one I really liked was the logo created by our Russian member Rick.

#3 all the way.

The fan-made ones and the earlier 2 are just too busy (and a little bit "let's see how many colours we can fit on the logo"), but #3 is nice and minimalist. Not too distracting, but gets the point across.

I have yet to vote... I too like elements from all of them.

I actually like 5, but would prefer it with The background of 3.

I do like the big stars.

If I had to make a choice right this minute, I would probably go 3. But I think I need to think on it.
It's not too late. Make it Eight!

I prefer number 3 out of these. But I like my own version the best :D
I think the logo should be very simple. It's a lot more important to have a kick-ass "box art" like the original.
But the font in 3 is better than in the other ones. That font but with roman numericals and a simple texture would be great.

I would like to see improved #2 but with bloody "2" return and sudden jump of a rangers star from 5% visibility to 120%... Letters on a star looks clearly like fonts, not part of the object. I loved yellow "2" and cracks but I give up.
#3
