hey guys!

i've created this one many many years ago.
to me it looks more interesting than the classical design through its more dynamic but not
too far from the original one, what do you think?

notice the overlapping, imagine that in 3d.
please concentrate on the basic icon shape, the two letters
(ignore the quality, its freaking old ;))

It's nice, but there's something... I don't know... it feels a bit too "busy", you know what I mean? It feels like my eyes are all over the place when I look at it. It could be better in 3D, rotating, I guess. In 2D it's kind of bordering on Escher. I would really like to see it in 3D, actually.

I dunno...it just seems too languid a shape for me.

So...the original DX logo actually looked like a "D" and an "X."

Right now, I see this as "C" and "D." There might even be an "O" or an "E" in there.

What exactly are you going for?

The shape seems to lack strength, or maybe foundation. Beyond that I don't quite know what to mean. It's a nice piece of work to be sure.

Looks like something that belongs to a fantasy game.

http://www.nanoaugur.net/dx3/logo-wall-1920.png i am talking about this one, D and E right?
now i only mirrored the "E" down, and twisted the whole thing a bit

that was exactly what i was looking for. the original D and E icon looks more like a doorway with architectural characteristics, feels pretty heavy.

i wanted to make it float somehow, like the next step in advancement is to go beyond and above the surface, right?

This is in my eyes the design's biggest problem: (check out the kaniji's meaning...)

So in that light...

I completely distance myself from this observation... :rasp:

the kanji means woman (for the lazy ones)

do you believe that my icon is close enough to the kanji to be recognized as one?

I think it's pretty cool. Does look like something more akin to fantasy though (reminds me of this for some reason: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TtaIiRuX_8&feature=related). Awesome job altogether.

i get it, maybe it looks too compact, simple and too "stable" for a complex and multifaceted game like deus ex...

would fit as an amulet icon for a fantasy game or a simple icon for a game like unreal tounament or an action packed deus ex...

is that what you want to tell me? :)

It looks too curved and arcane rather, as opposed to the elegance of Deus Ex. You look at the Deus Ex logo and it could be the logo of a corporation or an organisation, for example. This logo looks too much like a wizard's amulet. I don't think we need a Deus Ex logo for Human Revolution; the golden delta will suffice.

Nothing special. The basic shapes need more work. If you're really serious about logo design, start simple. Black & white & make (lots of) variations, explore. A logo should at least look decent (if not good) monochromatic.

i'm chinese and i'd say no

personally, i prefer a more simplistic and symbolic design

(i think the default golden triangle is pretty neat, tho it lacks a bit of personality)

Looks too different from the original, just dun say "Deus Ex" to me.
