Some days ago Blednik asked me if I had a logo for AngelScript. The answer was no, though I do have a button link: . I thought it would be cool to have a true AngelScript logo though. After all, most other script languages have one. The problem is what it should look like. Therefore I'm asking you, the community, for suggestions. It would need to be something simple, yet memorable and stylish. If you have any ideas, or suggestions, please post them here or send me an e-mail, and I'll post it. It doesn't have to be a finished logo design, just a draft is many times enough to show the idea. As a reference the logos for the other script languages can be found on their home pages: Lua, Squirrel, Python, Ruby, Pawn, etc. Regards, Andreas

Good ideas! I'll try to sketch up how I imagine your ideas later on.

Keep the ideas coming. If anyone feels like drawing your own ideas, or variants of the ideas already given, please feel free to do so as well.

Heyas. I have given it some thought too.

IMO it basically depends on what you want. There are two different things that came to my mind regarding logo style. You may want the logo to be a simple, likely two-color shape (perhaps an object) with some added eyecandy. Or you may want to use a more complex shape (two color or RGB stylized) likely of something with angel wings. I've always studied other logos to see what style they use before making my own. Personally I like the logo of the Zak Engine. It uses nice colors, is simple in shape and yet it somehow represents the name of the engine (http://www.zakengine.com). Again, these are just my thoughts. I've dug up some more examples I like on the web (copy/paste, if the links don't work).

Simple shapes:

EDIT: Here is my horrible attempt. After a while of playing with shapes and styles in Photoshop, I made this image:

Well, I think the basic logo has to be simple, either monochrome or at least with few pure colors. Depending on the media the logo will be used on, effects may then be added to the logo, such as gradients, bevels, high lights, textures, etc. But first the basic logo must be decided upon.

I can't say I liked the colors and effects you used for your suggestion, but the basic shape of it (the Å with the segmented circle around it) actually isn't bad at all.

I'll try to find the time to sketch Olusey's and Alpha_ProgDes' ideas tomorrow. Especially Olusey's idea sounds promising.

Keep the ideas coming.

Here's a WIP logo idea I'm working on based on the above. doesn't matter to me whether or not you want to have anything to do with it, just posting it as a thought. It's a WIP so any comments, ideas or criticism is appreciated.

Well I said it was a horrible attempt. Basically I wanted to show the shape itself, but I ended up adding some random styles. I probably could have done it better tho.

EDIT: Playing a bit with shapes in MM Flash and trying to make something that resembles aboves suggestions, I drew this black/white image. I managed to generate some nifty shapes, but they're not exactly something that would resemble wings. Anyway here it is...
