The logo / graphic should be a strong representation of the reclaim earth game and it's theme.
A player starts with little land and as the game goes on his usable land expands. Outside land is decimated by an unnamed alien element. So, the themes are expanding your base, improving your tech, and player vs player warring.
This is the second attempt at pinpointing the perfect logo. The first round produced a couple of really good options but we felt we wanted to get more submissions as this logo is really important to game image. We have removed the web portion of the contest to open it up to more designers.
The main result we'd like to achieve is to "wow' any possible viewers of the logo / app icon leaving them intrigued to what lies within.
Although, I'm open to any excellent design ideas the main theme we've seen in round 1 is the use of a globe. Which is probably ideal. If you're to use a globe colours are flexible as the setting is sci fi we can adapt to the right colours.
I'm leaning towards the use of black & a nice blue. Either black water blue land or black land, blue water. If you think another colour scheme works better than please show me. Other globe elements could be the showing of reclamation. If so, the reclaimed portion of land would be a nice light green.
Other ideas that I kicked out in round 1... could use an eclipse affect. Possibly corona light effect. I'll add a couple pics i found to show what I mean.
As for font... make it clean, strong, modern.
If a graphic / logo fits into our vision, it could lead to future projects.
Thank you for any and all submissions. I'll try to answer each question as they come in.
I've added some random pics. If using a globe it should show land and sea. Neat colouring. But if using light affects the pics could give ideas. Light affects are not mandatory. Just an idea.
Another idea I had towards the end of round 1 was to incorporate the outline of a plane flying towards you. I don't know if this would actually work. But it could be a subtle outline created by the eclipse corona affect. Just an idea.
