Logo for Hertz Coin

in #bitshares4 years ago

I was recently contacted by @cm-steem for a logo design for a cryptocurrency they are developing. They explained it briefly to me as a coin where the value changes in the pattern of a sine wave. That's me simplifying it entirely and many of you will understand it a lot better, I'm just an artist! Here's the link so you can see how terrible my explanation is: https://sites.google.com/view/hertz-aba/

They wanted the sine wave incorporated into the logo and after a lot of back and forth, this is the design I came up with:


Secondly they requested a 140x140 pixel version of the logo. It needed a little extra shadowing to accentuate it here.

Personally I think the gradient needs to go, the sine wave is too big/long, the z is too far away from the vertical line, and the green in general doesn't match the vibe they're trying to give. The z is kind of just sitting uncomfortably on top and the overlap won't look too great when it needs to be smaller. The z needs better alignment and something needs to be done about the overlap. Also the sine itself isn't aligned to the line properly, and at the least the leftmost edge of the wave should be thickened and meet the vertical line by dropping down at a steeper angle so the leftmost edge of the wave becomes flush with the left edge of the green bar, not come to a point as it does now.


This is extremely rude and shitty of me to do this in your thread but this is just my take on it, don't have access to photoshop now and gimp is ass.

Nice logo, I like it

Looks good. Looks like a chemistry formula or something. I don't know I am not a science person.

Wow that's great

All work is good work, but to be fair, i would had taken less risks and just go for a coin , with an H and a sinusoidal wave.

Everyone does a coin, it's over done.

A billet then!

Now speaking seriously, its true, but its because it works, thats what i meant for taking less risks . The logo isnt bad at all, it just has a huge early 2000 vibe to it .

Looks like the coin sine wave logo was done years ago: https://cryptocurrencytalk.com/topic/14192-hertzcoin-hz-information/

I've been in graphic design for over 17 years and I agree with you. KISS...keep it super simple.
