    What Are You Working On?

    Very cool stuff from everyone. I really appreciate the ideas. 😊 I mostly agree with both Martian and no god. The logo should either consist exclusively of the NLD letters in some configuration, or it shouldn't have them at all. And I'm also guilty of throwing abstract shapes together that ultimately have no relation to level design. Though I appreciate the thought and meaning that has gone into the ideas you all have shared, I need to be honest and recognize that most people that see our logo aren't going to know or care about the depth of meaning behind something. And honestly, that's not the point of a logo anyway. To put it simply - we need to aim for a logo that doesn't require an explanation, and is clearly related to the primary subject of interest (level design). To me, the most obviously recognizable figures that level designers universally recognize would be the cube, and the XYZ axis arrows (if I'm missing something else that's obvious here, let me know). And with that in mind, here's another dump of example images in the spoiler.

    All this discussion about the logo makes me want to make one. Sit tight, I'll be back. Edit: Never mind, my phone won't transfer images. You all continue. 2nd Edit: Alright I made my logo in Forge in ten minutes So the symbol is one rectangle, two squares, six triangles. You can make the shape in just seven lines, but not only can you make the shape, you can also take pieces of the symbol to make every english letter in the alphabet, and also every digit. The symbol has three basic shapes commonly used in virtually all aspects of design, and has depth from its simple creation. Thank you for reading, please share your thoughts.

    Honestly at this point I'm just seeing a lot of logo ideas that look like nothing to me at a surface level besides abstract shapes. None of it says level design to me.

    I fully agree with this point. Either we go the letter-only route (as in the logo consisting of letters) or not include letters at all. Both put together often ends up looking overloaded and needlessly complicated.

    Would be interesting if you could incorporate the oroboros concept to this. So, you have something like multi's logo whatever shape it ends up being and having it surrounded with a shape similar to the oroboros.

    someone said directional input? if you want to the do the evolution thing, maybe some kind of unfolding box could be interesting I didn't really accomplish that with these, but again, this is basically scratch paper

    The site name came from Qrrbrbirbel, who has generously allowed me to use it, and thank god for that because all of my other name ideas were horrendous, lmao. Hmm...shirt ideas... The truth is that shirt ideas are not my area of expertise. Luckily we have plenty of creatively minded people on staff and within the community who I know are willing and able to help out with that. There's definitely been discussion on shirts, and quite honestly it's just waiting on me to determine the correct timing for it. For some background, which perhaps nobody cares about..., it will obviously require some work to create shirt logo's, determine where to produce them, setup shipping, figure out the best way to handle the transactions, etc. There's an addon for the website that will make some of that pretty straight forward I believe. It would allow us to create an NLD Store, which would be integrated into the site, where we could offer a variety of items (including shirts). The cost to add that isn't super expensive, but also isn't super cheap, so I've been holding off until I feel the site is large enough to justify it in my mind. I feel like it's getting close to that point now. The rest of it is probably relatively simple. But since I'm learning literally all of it as we go along, I'm probably slower to get some of this stuff going than I could be. What would you like to see on a shirt? We obviously could do something simple like the NLD Reaction: We've also been working on a revamp of the site header/logo. It's not finalized yet, but will probably end up looking something like this: You have any other thoughts/ideas/suggestions?

    I like it. It's probably the best one of those that have 'NLD' in them. I'm not sure the NLD is needed though. One of the issues with including it is that it becomes redundant if it's added by the 'Next Level Design' test in the sites header. So yeah, I'm not completely ruling it out, but not totally on board with it either.
