'Entertainment center' sounds wrong somehow if it does not incorporate interactive media like video games.

This is great work. IMO the best so far.

Here is my version. May the best logo wins

Currently my fave! Simple, crisp, very clever, and perhaps most importantly it is a proper Logo rather that just different ways of writing Kodi.

This doesn't happen to be borderlining some Nintendo copyrights / trademarks ? I know simple symbols are hard to trademark - but I'm sure that if anyone could pull it off, it'd be someone like Nintendo, MS, Apple, Samsung, Disney etc.

The fact that very simple symbols and forms are hard to trademark - might have an impact on what logo contributions will make it to "the poll" - if something like that turns out to be arranged. I expect the resident team will be wanting to trademark and/or copyright the new logo.

I really like this one. It works in every way. Could you try to make one that says "Unlimited Entertainment" or "Simply Entertaining". We need a slogan more than a pure description...

Your reply here suggest this might be a possibility at least. We would understand perfecly if the nature of such would require "in-progress" and final poll results to be contained until any or all legal matters are sorted. This might not be an "unspoken understanding" for everyone though, so actually stating this when and if the time comes for a poll - might be a good idea.

I don't know - with my statement i was purely talking as the individual community member which is amazed about the presented work. There will be a poll at some point for sure - but no clue who the voters will be. (i don't know more as you - noone knows - there was no discussion about that yet).

up and down arrows would need a different colour so that the name itself is readable, but nice idea indeed

martinezdesign: would work if the product were a fence

patseguin: looks like ms office wordart

Why not keep it simple like Narfotic, aphaits (he posted I think three ideas that look very nice), teletran-one or Tinwarble?

Nice, I really like this one. Plus it can be used as a icon.


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - mag.py - 2014-08-04

Did some variations of aphaits idea. Wanted to make the ratio of the area inside the brackets 16:9 to resemble a screen.

Will put more in this imgur gallery if I keep going.

It does not look that much like the Triforce from the Legend of Zelda. Nintendo does not own any exclusive rights to a combination of three triangles. As an example: the ski brand "Fischer" uses a "Triforce" as its logo. The icon I made using Narfoticon's "D" lacks symmetry and three triangles. It only consists of two triangles with one rounded edge each and one diamond shape with a rounded top. TinEye finds no similar pictures either.
