New Logo / Icon

this some kind neutral icon, I think need more aggression for first impression

On russian forum we had this variant xD

awesome xD

Nice efforts!

DropBox is a frequent choice: large bandwidth limit, basically-direct download links, integration.

Feel silly, forgetting dropbox like that. lol

Here is the link for the .zip containing the .xcf and .psd files.

Also put it in the original post. Feel free to make your own variations!

Obviously it’s up to the community and Urho’s project maintainers if they want to adopt it as the logo, or some derivation. For the sake of clarity, I don’t personally care about licencing or credit/attribution for the logo, it’s a gift/contribution to the Urho community. So any rights to this logo now belong to Urho’s project maintainers. And as far as I care, anyone can use it for any Urho3D related projects can feel free to modify/distribute/whatever. I personally prefer that it only be used in connection with Urho3D, but since I’m giving my rights to it away, it’s not my call. Enjoy.

There was a similar thread a long time ago.

Made this and added it to

Well, that looks nice and stylish!

I’m not fully sure about readability, but then again, a logo doesn’t necessarily need to be “read”. And this one can if you know what you’re looking for.

Why is it a fish, anyway?
I like it, but… why is it that way? :smiley:

I like the last one.

I like Modanung’s varian too. Stylized text “Urho3D” is cool

I think it is a bit unreadable. Technically a logo doesn’t need to be over the top. If you look at some of the most popular engines their logos are using classic fonts.

I could almost swear I can still see Urho (albeit a very dead one) from the outline, great job.

The greatest thing in this logo is that it is simultaneously nice image of fish and readable… almost readable text.
Usually such logos suffer from significant distorsion either image or text. This logo doesn’t.
I mean, image is not distorted by text and recognized as image firstly. At the other hand, text is also recognizeable and almost didn’t lose its form.

May be with black outline text is more readable?

This logo is surprisingly (black) metallish, great work!

And since the fish has been dead many years it’s appropriate you see the bones :slight_smile:

I’d really like to see this logo at the beginning of a game splash. Looks so good! Great work!

Modanung, could you do an official version of the larger logo (ie. with Urho3D text) with black outline? Perhaps have the background transparent so that it’s easy to compose where required.

Nice one!


Scroll down the home page, name origin explained there. :slight_smile:

I’ll be honest, I’ve read that description many times, and for some reason I always thought it was talking about a legendary person who hunted fish… and kicked off Urho… It wasn’t until I saw this post that I realized what the fish really meant. :confused: I mean, the description of this mighty fish is pretty epic. Reading, “among the fish”, doesn’t quite register the we’re talking about a fish (in my mind). But this thread has made things much clearer! :slight_smile: Thank you

Thanks for all the (positive) feedback. :slight_smile:

Urho is even wearing corpse-paint. :wink:
I’m glad you’re not offended by his morbid appearance.

Something like this? Might work well as a patch, too.
