PostSubject: TFB - Update the Logo Discussion   March 29th 2014, 9:29 am

As mentioned in the current TFB - Raid event topic, we are approaching our 20th event in the next month or two.  Thus I thought that we could start a new topic to discuss a possible update to our logo/avatar.  Here is the current one:



In my opinion, there are good and bad things about this logo.  So how about we (ie current TFB members) decide on the following:

Decision #1:  Do we update the logo or leave it alone?

Decision #2:  If we decide to update the logo, let's then figure out our "design specs".

Decision #3:  Members follow the design specs and submit designs. We all vote on the best submission and ga-zinga, we have a new logo!

Just incase it's not totally obvious, I would vote that we update our current logo. If a majority agrees, then I can toss out a draft of the design specs...

My vote is that we contract with AtomicHermit, CXB, or the other gifted graphics forum dwellers to come up with a rocking one.

We could pay them with crystals, erks, and game credits.

Since fug bug is the joke merc, I think we should decide on what is considered the absolute best current merc and combine them. It would be an update and pay homage to the current logo.

Or perhaps we should take the Double Gun Commando, that looks so much like our deceased friend, and fellow FFF / TFB member, Frank - Aceslifebegins that we could just take the blast goggles off and, volia - New Logo.

I definitely like the idea of combining a lethal with a fug bug again. I was thinking someone could take hardwheeler (I love the art on that guy) and replace his hammers with fug bug heads.

So we all have different ideas-perfect! Anyways I guess my main design spec would be something that is easy to see. I mean easy to see when viewed on my phone as a small square. Plus having the "TFB" at the top would be cool...

We need to snazzy up the TFB lettering as well. Maybe even have "Team Fug Bug" out full. Other than that I don't have any particular ideas/opinions.

"Team Fug Bug" Would be way too hard to read on the in-game avater. Unless the words took up the entire avatar maybe.

I think just "TFB" work for the avatar. But snazzy would be good. It's like cowbell, you need more of it.

So any volunteer(s) out there willing to take a shot at a new image?

I keep going back to Titanfist when I try and think of what Lethal to combine with the fug bug. He just looks like a fug bug head would fit well on him. lol

Very true about "Team Fug Bug" not being clear on small screens. Going with a reworked TFB is best. I also was thinking about the idea that TFB is a lot of little guys all working together (i.e. strength in numbers). That gave me an idea of having TFB be center and predominant surrounded by various fug bug mercs (sort of as a border). If/When I find a little time, I can try to use Photoshop to work it up if the rest of you like the idea. I'm not especially good at Photoshop, so it may take a while or be more of a concept sketch.

What if it was just the letters TFB but inside the letters were various fug bugs? That way on the big screen it would have some nice detail and it would add splashes of color on the small screen.

@Daed: I'm liking that idea. Essentially we fill up the avatar square with block letters "TFB". Then have the background color around the letters a lighter, distinct color. Inside the letters is a collage pattern of the various fug bugs. Or maybe just one fug bug per letter. Zoom in on the eye or something...

...we are brainstorming here folks-jump in if you want.

On a related side note, when ongkuba joined he played around with some new logo's on his own. He seems to have some photoshop Kung-fu. Maybe he can help us. I'll say his name two more times to see if he appears here...ongkuba...ongkuba

(Beetlejuice Anyone?)

lol@beetlejuice reference.

Yeah we need to get Ongkuba up in here. Who did the final version of the current logo? They had PS chops too.

Yep, you nailed it.

How about a eyeball that tales up the entire square (round or vertical pupil) overlaid with the Block letters TFB? Then inside the each of the letters some sort of fug bug either across all or unique per letter - hissing, jowel, queen, etc.
