Tim Mensch got their new logo design by running a design contest:
Game Logo: Feudal Japan Steampunk Challenge
Check out Tim Mensch's Logo design contest…
Games & Recreational
Steel Dragons is a game (an RPG) with an Asian flavor: I call its style Feudal Japan Steampunk. If you don't know what that means, odds are good you won't get the logo right, but in short, imagine a science fiction setting where the culture feels a lot like feudal Japan, but they have access to technology from a past (fallen) civilization. I would love the logo to have an Asian font feel, *but* the game is serious, and every "Asian" font I've been able to find feels like a parody of Asian cultures. I want something that looks serious, possibly hand-painted with ink (calligraphic paint brush?). Any art in addition to the logo words could be done as a water-color, if you can manage highlights or hints of the content using a Japanese water color style.
To clarify common questions: * I'm not looking for an app icon right now. This logo is more for the splash screen/web site for the game. * I don't need a full font for the logo; the attached lettering is the best I've been able to come up with from existing fonts (and I tweaked the result myself to try to make it better, but I am not a real artist). The right answer may be to do completely custom hand lettering for the words, since I want it to look like it's hand-inked. Original notes: The "logos I like" examples are only vaguely related to what I want the Steel Dragons logo to look like. I've attached the best logo that I was able to come up with as a non-artist. Please don't use it verbatim; just use it to get a vague sense of what my first concept was. The dragon image is there to give you an idea of what the art looks like. Again I probably don't want this used directly, at least not as-is, in the logo. But if there were a sparse water-color that gave the impression of that dragon as part of the logo? That could be awesome. When I say a Japanese water color dragon, I don't mean the kind with the bulging eyes. I mean something more like one of these: http://www.imagekind.com/Chinese-Water-Dragon_art?imid=be47a448-93d5-4ee8-b5eb-fd5f2e091d39 https://www.etsy.com/listing/62275998/print-japanese-calligraphy-dragon-with Please don't copy either of these; I'm including the links entirely for style. The Steel Dragon is also supposed to look as if he's made out of metal scales, so the color should probably stay in the grey+reflection domain. Please ask if you have any questions.
