Logosquare provided the most original designs during the initial entry phase of the competition. It was obvious that he spent time reading through the design brief and notes, as well as studying the examples provided in order to prepare quality design ideas. During the final phase, he listened to my comments and provided the requested changes quickly. I am very happy with Logosquare's work and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking professional logo/design work.
How Trent O started their logo design journey
We are a small group of professional game developers who have left the world of big publishers behind. We overhaul great old games by replacing the aging components with new technology and artwork, all while keeping the fun. We love games and we want to re-invigorate some great older titles.
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our customers are a mix of nostalgia gamers and new gamers. The nostalgia gamers remember some of the titles from the first time around, but through rose colored glasses. When they look back at the games they used to love they just can't get past the dated look and feel. We want to help them re-connect with games they used to love. For the newer gamers who are seeing these great title for the first time, we strive to keep the gameplay magic that made the game so great the first time around. The nostalgia gamers are likely between their 30's and late 40's. They've been away from gaming for a bit, but will return if the promise is great enough. The newer gamers are likely 14-25, have heard of these older games, but have never played them.
We require a good logo which conveys the concept of Overhaul Games. First and foremost it must be simple, recognizable and professional. We want a feeling of craftsmanship by veteran developers while still maintaining the fun of game development. The winning design will be one which can convey a feeling of experience without overwhelming complexity As part of the logo design we expect a series of treatments for different backgrounds (on white, on black) and different color depths (one color, two, print). We expect delivery in a number of formats, including adobe illustrator files so the logo can be reproduced as required.
