Siliconera is going to be updating its logo! Our community’s opinion is super important to us, so we wanted to run some early-stage options by you. While we want to involve everyone in the process, please understanding that design by committee isn’t the ideal way to make a firm design and we’re going to try to make some sane compromises based on your feedback.
In terms of creative direction, we wanted to preserve some part of the dinosaurs and joystick that have been an iconic part of our image since 2003, as well as incorporate elements of the site we just merged with, Japanator. We have three in-progress candidates so far. Two adopt variants of the Japanator mascot, Ai-Fi, into the design, while one sticks with the two dinosaurs who have been with us over the years.
So now, we ask you to please weigh in on the designs we have so far. We may share other earlier doodles in the comments, so keep an eye out! The final product may be slightly different, as we’re still gathering internal feedback as well.
Feeling extra creative? Feel free to post your own design ideas in the comments as well. We’d love to see your remixes.
Also, to help give you a better idea of how things could look, here’s a gallery showing all of these images in-action.
Thank you in advance for your help, and please feel free to let us know more of your thoughts in the comments!
