I could get another version of the existing one without the pixel edges too.

What do you guys think?


I really appreciate whatever you come up with, thank you.

Also, is DuneFishUK still around? 'Cause he's way more qualified than I am in this.

Now that we've found our two logo prototypes (Freak, Omph, it's your call), let's see the next issue :

4 options :

option 1 : White small letters (minuscules/lower case)

option 1.PNG


option 2 : Black/brown small letters (+ white subtitle)

option 2.PNG

      I would go for one of the first three, although I like the graphic idea, I fear it would be too much stuff going on.
      But I don't mind either way.

      NB:
      thx Freak, I'm super stoked to have my logo on your board man :)

                subforums : titles/images

                • option 1 : no changes made
                  subforum1.PNG

                • option 2 : customised titles and subtitles (font size and/or font colour)

                • option 3 : customised AND illustrated titles
                  subforum3.PNG


                Is that clear enough or do we need a translator ?

                You have clearly stated the options, well done!

                Can we use Dunefish's font in option 2?
