Dunno, LOTR maybe?

Dr. Who was an easy one really! You gave it away. Although it's the S1-4 logo, not the latest one. I prefered the old one anyway. :)

Daggerfall, Morrowind, Obsidian? (Elder Scrolls)

Btw I really like the season 5 stuff :P

Specifically Morrowind, but they're all pretty similar in style.  A season 5 logo might be a bit tricky, but a fun challenge.  ^_^

Oh, should have thought of Elder Scrolls...
I played Morrowind until I had to do several tasks for several tribes... Then I had a bug or something that killed the storyline and I didn't want to replay it so I only got to see the end in speedruns. The music sucked, too, so I moved my Oblivion music folder to the Morrowind folder... That worked fine, eheh.

Reuse ideas you had for other logos but that you ended up dumping, etc. Maybe they'll work better on this new subject!

Okay, rather extreme and unusable examples there, but dialled back I figure they could generate some ideas.  Or not.  :-/

Mostly a 'Be careful what you ask for' post.  ;)


Here's some more usable (?) ideas.  Again with the negative space, and a bit tighter kerning - since that's what all the *cool* logos do.  :)


EDIT: This being the simplest versions, if there's a clear favourite, I'd refine it a bit more and variations thereof.  Resemblance to Adobe logo purely coincidental.  :whistle: (and will likely disappear with a gradient, dropshadow or font change)

Of course, to go really logoy, you have to mess with the individual letter shapes.

I don't know, at this point I just thought you were doing some dadaist impression of logo concepts... Which worked pretty well BTW :P
I'm really looking for a usable logo, you know! Not something corporate, but something in the spirit of what's being done these days -- sober and cool at the same time.
