I really like the font style in Erioo's post, with the 'Adventure' on top, and the 'Game Studio' below.   :smiley:

And I *REALLY* love the cups in Erioo's post and Limping Fish's post (further down).  The cup handles are actually on the correct side, ready to be picked up.   :cheesy:
It's always frustrated me a lot, seeing the cup handle on the wrong side.

Nice ones, LimpingFish! Would you mind if I gave modifying your design a try?

Btw, everyone feel free to modify my logos. That's why I uploaded the svg, so it's easy to change. If you need a free vector editing tool, try Inkscape, that's what I use.

How about merging the old header with the new cup by cat?


edit:
or with a slightly darker outline like in the original



Btw. is there a free filehost for svg files?

If you can find a font that works well for both the logo and the website/forums text I'm happy to adjust.

@abstauber, you can just throw in GitHub, make a repository and then make it's main branch it's GitHub Pages sources. It's how I did it.

It will then be USERNAME.github.io/PROJECT NAME/directory/file

Oh noes, it seems like the font is not embedded in the svg and also not its path.
Seems like I need to update the file once more

Yeah, it's fine to have the SVG file as is, but I would suggest using an exported png to show directly in the forums, just avoid the font being different because the system font is different (iPhone, Android, Windows, ...)

You should convert the text to paths. This way, it does not have to include the font, because all that is left of the text is vectors in the shape of the letters. The benefits over png: It's resizable without loss and others can still use/edit parts of it (for example, I only adjusted character spacing after converting the letters to paths). It might be a good idea to keep the original with the text somewhere so you can easily change the font etc.

@cat, that's a good idea about path! So probably having the two svgs of whatever is decided at the end.

@abstauber, that traced cup is really cool. I wonder if we can have a little arm but it cuts off and has a little bone at the end instead of the rest of Larry, like if some adventure death scene has gotten the rest of him.  :-D

New try - now with paths. The font layer is still in the file, but hidden this time.

And without Larry:

@eri0o: I'd love to see that dangling bones on the cup :-D

I don't like the modern "flat" design for icons, as it makes everything anonymous and boring.

LimpingFish's cup shape is good! I also like abstauber's cups (the ones without Larry Vales) in the last version, although I'm not too fond of the font.

This made me laugh, so I had to make a high res version, just for fun  (laugh)



She has a blue cup head and blue cup earrings, what more can you ask for?!  :P

Nice ones, LimpingFish! Would you mind if I gave modifying your design a try?

Sure! I'm working with Photoshop CC, using 3D models for the cups, so, if you can use that format, feel free!  :)

@lorenzo: This is so awesome, you should create the new 404 page with her!

@LimpingFish: I don't think I can use the format, but I will try to work with your png file.

Ok, here is the revised tea label version (now with white border)



Then I tried a modified version of LimpingFish's logo



And then it got me and I went totally whimsical to do justice to all cups and mugs ;)



Oh, the font in the last two logos is Titan One.

Not sure if you want to use these? Made them this afternoon because I was bored, free to use them for anything, I just like giving back to the community :D
P.S Background is not black but transparent, just added for better contrast, check the spoiler below for full-size transparent logos :)
