FEU Logo Design Contest

FEU Logo Design Contest


So, if anyone has been in Discord, you’ll know we don’t have many version of our current logo. It also may be time for a change. I’d like to announce a logo design contest.

Deadlines


Just post your files/design in this thread. The official end time for the contest will be 23:59 EST 31 August 2019 (that is, the end of August).

What should I submit?


Ideally, your design should be vectorized. If that’s not possible, just provide the resolutions below, or higher-res versions if possible. We would like renders in the following resolutions as well:

  • 512x512 (For use as Discord server icon, and website logo)
  • 1920x1080 (For use in banners and such)

What’s in it for me?


Exposure!

Okay, just kidding.
The winning design, obviously, will be used on the website/Discord server. We would also like to offer your choice of $40 cash (say, via Paypal), or $20 cash and a season DLC pass for Fire Emblem Three Houses.
We would also like to offer $10 cash for the runner-up.

Who chooses the winners?


Placings will be determined by an instant-runoff style ranking. There are 5 “voters”:

I will post a poll upon the end of submissions; the rankings in the public poll will count as one instant-runoff ballot.

Licencing


By submitting a design to the contest, we will take that as a go-ahead to use or modify any submitted graphics or derivatives thereof for use by the general public for personal, non-commercial purposes, as well as by Fire Emblem Universe for both non-commercial and commercial purposes.


Here’s (a bad render of – unfortunately the original files have been lost) the old FEU logo; consider it as an entrant in itself, as well as a place from which to draw inspiration:

I know that Pikmin will win, but why not trying ? (please don’t laugh at me too much I’m not as good as him, his logo is a real piece of art (lol) )
Well I’m not an artist (at all) but I tried :


(this one is without the flashy light, just in case it woul be usefull in any way)

I’ve also made this logo in two versions too :
the flashy one :


the “normal” one :

Anyway like I said I’m not an artist, but I had fun doing those logos, these are done from scratch. I had fun doing them this is my first time doing a logo.

A word of advice from the master - try centering the Universe in the banner a bit better with the Fire Emblem up top.
Your fire emblem image (the physical object with the gemstones) also appears to have a dead pixel in the upper left. It’s present on all 4 logos posted.

Nice design, remind my of smash in some points, I like that.
I also like how you actualized the feU tiny logo.
This contest will be really good imo.

Great idea guys.

My 2c: in the current design, the letters are difficult to see other than the U (esp as a colorblind person, but I’m guessing it’s probably the same regardless of ocular disabilities). A clean sans-serif (or lightly-serif) font and slightly more prominent borders would help a lot. It’d also be really cool if our new design looked sharp when shrunk all the way down to favicon size. Maybe that’s a separate contest that could be done later on, though.

+1 to implementing the actual fire emblem in the design, too, nice one @Leo_link

If we’re getting a new logo me thinks we need a new mascot as well.

Everybody say hello to Kevin!

(pls don’t kick me from the site, I liek it here)

I basically retraced the old one, but made it more geometric. Might be helpful for those who want a better version of the original.

The grey circle looks ellipticalm Could we maybe get an edit to be strictly circular?

#14

Yeah… not sure how that happened. It’s fixed now.

Changed it up a little.
^ = 2048px by 2048px


128px by 128px


preview of what it’d look like in discord (might be better to darken the ring around the letters a bit so they read better)

A headsup for some stray pixels, but otherwise I really love your design

I should be able to do vectorized versions around the end of the month (i’ll add it in this post)
