A new logo for Nightops.net

Post by Secant » Fri Mar 11, 2016 8:23 pm

A facelift for the nightops.net website is coming up "soon®". One of the changes I'm considering is to replace our text logo with an actual logo image. Since I suck at photoshop, creativity, etc. I thought I'd get you chumps to do it ask the community. If you can come up with a good logo image, or even just an idea for one, please post it here!

Here are the conditions:
  • The logo image we have now is 310px by 90px. It can't be any more than 90px high (and thinner is better), but it can be longer or shorter than 310px.
  • Abstract images (or, more specifically, images or shapes which don't infringe copyright) are best.
  • Bonus points if you can convincingly explain how your logo relates to night ops or nightops.net.
  • The "night ops green" color is #02d21e.
Have fun and happy photoshopping!

Okay, drummed up this initial prototype. The green symbol is a composite glyph made up of Ansuz, Dagaz and Perth - Nordic runes of Vision, Awareness and Mystery respectively. Faded in the background is the alchemical symbol for Night, with a dim moonlit illumination.

And I textured the logo as well because camo > solids. :P

Most of it was just blank .PNG space which I trimmed off. Here's the original dimensions again.

Thanks. If it's exactly the same size I can swap it out without fucking around with the CSS.
