...yeah, I guess I can se the irony in that :wink:

I'm quite sure you're happe I haven't been rambling on about all my rendering questions, since I'm a total noob.

No question though, Indigo is the way to go if you want true photo realistic images, with acceptable setup times!

It's a bit too subtle. What images can you come up with based on that one, but with the eye viewed from the side... (just trying to inspire you). I still like your original design :D

While I'm not opposed to a new logo, I've not seen anything yet that looks like a real improvement on the old one, though I do like Matsta's reworking of the old wordmark (with the wave).

I'm aware of the shortcomings of the current logo with regard to reproducibility, but I think it's conceptually stronger than most of the alternatives put forth thus far. There's even an old vector (svg) version of it kicking around somewhere that would probably look reasonable with a bit of tweaking.

My idea for a new logo...

The colour, obviously, is debateable. The effects, dismissable. But, the overall design? Well, you tell me...

Not to be harsh, but I'd stick to solid colors - the Photoshop layer effects really have no place in a professional logo, for practical as well as aesthetic reasons (unless you're Google, but nevermind them). :D

As for the design, did you have something particular in mind that you were trying to convey? It looks vaguely like the Apple logo at first glance, and moreso with that choice of color, but what was the thought process behind it?

I guess, indigo should have an indigo - colour in it :D

Maybe, if you could modell such a button, the effects would appear to be not "just" effects ;)

The overall shape looks great, but rgn is right: a bit like apple, though.
( I guess, the colour makes this effect even stronger...)

Sorry Dave (and no offence), but this is not a logo. I remember doing stuff like that when i first saw Photoshop. Also it's far from looking pro. I recommend you to start in vector right in the beginning (or if not, then at least think about how you would put it into vector format and if it would look good).

I think the first 2 questions when doing logo should be: A) is it stylish enough? B) does it look professional?

OK. I'm bracing myself for more slating. ANOTHER attempt at a new logo...

And, yes, I do still love the old one...

I'm not a professional designer, but maybe these attempts can be used as inspiration.

it also looks close to apples logo - shape of an apple.



davec, designing is fun - learning it a hard rocky way.

the new logo is already quite more different. put the words
renderer and "ndigo" some where.

render engine or so could be on the left of the "I".


keep on going!

Last one is much better !!
You're getting there Dave. Keep going :wink:
I also agree with F.ip2, that it could include some hints to renderer (or something like that).
