It's pretty good, i think the relative sizes of the writing and font need to change, font should be a bit bigger.
Also i don't know about the 80s retro-futuristic font :)

I think you could use a simpler font. Appart from that, nice idea

I cant find a link between your design and the whole concept of Indigo... The current logo has an I seen through a glass sphere showing the most basic aspects of light simulation, Maxwell has a sinusoidal curve design to symbolize a light-wave which rendering is all about, etc. I think if we have to change the logo, it should go along these lines, and have a minimalistic font, the one you chose is a bit heavy. I'll think about something, but im not a logo designer lol :wink:

EDIT: And it has to be a simple design, that could be overlaid on renders, like on your example.

I like the old one a lot too, but I also support the new one because it would be nice have a simple vector image for watermarks. So I don't think it should really be an issue of old vs. new - just a different logo for a different application.

Is that what you're thinking radiance?

I never even noticed that before.

I was aiming for something like a monochrome rainbow...

I also like the old logo...
If yo don't have a big enough version, you just can actualize the logo, by making a big white sphere with a camera, a small glass sphere and this text inside...
It actually never would be the same, but if you have a good light setting, it may be quite similar and you can have it in any specific size.
The text can't be the problem, as you just can save a gigantic texture for it...

I also like the two other logos, but I'd like to stay to the old one...

I'd be only too happy to create a vector version of the old logo. And a two colour vector version along with it. Only too happy. I really like the old one.

There exist a vector version of the old Logo!!!
Just search the board... (I'm to lazy now to do it 8) )

Just an idea, trying to maintain classic design....

Did it with inkscape, can be transparent or saved in pdf....

making my avatar gave me this idea....

Here's my first try at a logo concept:


This design was an attempt to include/blend the common sources of light . . . a sun, a moon & a light bulb. It also retains an element of the previous logo, that of an "I" being refracted through a lens.

Might also make a decent material preview scene, with variations in shape, thickness & smooth/hard edges:


Any thoughts?

Cire, i think your logo is really good! Maybe it needs some tweaking, but I like it! 8)
