While I'm at it -- I was wondering Bloc, did you make the Phoenix theme for Yourasoft? I always thought you did, but then again I was told yesterday that Eren made it. I Googled "pheonix" "smf" and found a link to your site, although it's currently down... I'm a bit lost!
Dunno what happened... "Bad gateway" never happened to me before on this server.
The wedge isn't symmetric, thats true, its the font actually thats different on both sides.
If you can find an even better font, feel free to share :)
As for symmetry, I didn't have that feeling myself...? Well, at least in my version of the logo, it seems to be symmetric.
But let me get this straight. A wedge is something to push open things right?
Wedge is a pun on "Simple Machines", because that's what it is... A simple machine.
However, I myself think of Wedge as the mathematical sign, i.e. "^". Now you know ;)
So the overlay in W is a kind "can-opener" lol, on the Wedge name? I might try some ideas if I know more about the meaning behind it.
That's really the concept. Want a smooth, beautiful and yet very sober logo that can easily be reused in assets (whatever we do in the future) and shrunk.
The best logo I ever made was the one for "cyna", you can see it at www.cynagames.com
--> it's actually the picture of an *elephant* (an Asian elephant, of course), and it still clearly says "Cyna". I never found that kind of inspiration again...
Really, I'm not a designer. Well... I *am* a designer, but I'm not a good designer. I really define myself as a hobbyist, a hacker of sorts. I don't do magnificent stuff -- I just hack my ideas into stuff with a wedge, until I'm pleased.
