Previously on IndieWebCamp Logo Redesign
I’ve been in the process of redesigning the IndieWebCamp logo. The last round of iterations ended with this version which had an admittedly not the best C in the logomark.
Iterations of Rounded C Knockout
Based on suggestions from the #IndieWebCamp IRC channel, I worked on rounding off the knockout in the C.
I felt like this read more like a C. It’s pretty fun, kind of looks like a racecar drive / astronaut helmet. And it’s pretty evenly balanced within itself and within the whole logomark. So at this point, I made the one color and three color versions.
But after a while, it started feeling like a tennis ball. I got some more feedback from the #IndieWebCamp IRC channel which led me down the path of using just a single cut for the knock out.
Iterations of Thin C Knockout
Here are four slightly different variations of the same idea. Rounded vs square. Half vs three quarters width.
The third one resonated best with the group. I like it too. So, I made the outlines and three color version as well.
Final IndieWebCamp Logomark Redesign With Thin C Knockout
If these versions are well accepted by the group, the next step is really nail down the logotype. Which is currently fine, but not that great.
Again, direct any converation about this over to the IndieWebCamp wiki’s /logo page.
