Would it be possible to combine the two? Both are very plain, simple and thus powerful. I think adding the symbols to the bracket logo might look very nice?

Tried adding a little logo instead of clever text manipulation. The square is split in order to represent both stop and pause, with the triangle being play.

I like this. The overlapping stop/play icons work well, clean and modern.

This is by far my favorite so far! Smile

Animate it please?

This thread has got more kok than Smith & Wesson! Tongue I really think the "D" must be a lot clearer for the logo not to be a complete failure.

Closed the "d" and added a subscript. Font is Roboto.

Love the D on this one. Simple, but can still see the media centre buttons in the design. Awesome.

Lets not forget that most people dont know what kodi is. The design by Ximon is imho waaaaay to difficult to read. Its a name, but also button and they form a word people dont know... This will keep xbmc/kodi an incrowd thing, no problem for me, i know how good xbmc/kodi is, but it is not very welcoming for newcomers...


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - XBL. - 2014-08-05

After going through this thread I'm actually optimistic about the name change. As many others, I associated Kodi with kids toys or other childish stuff, not the best media center (or whatever the subtitle is) in the world. But with a mature logo this whole association disappears.

Anyway, I like the idea of aphait to use the O to allow customization.

Imagine that while Kodi starts, it randomly uses fanart from your library (might need some specialized fanart to make sure it always fits).

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

This one is also really good, although I would loose the forward slashes and modify the brackets. In that sense, the modified version by mag.py is really cool (the idea that it resembles 16:9 adds some meaning as well).

I like the symmetry (especially of previous installments), but as many pointed out, it spelled KOK. Fixing it by putting "Kodi" there twice (once stylized, once normal) isn't really a good fix - I'd go in a different direction.

Really happy to see some good ideas and it gives me hope for the future of XBMC... errr.. Kodi. Keep up the good work Smile.

@apaiths
It's "Entertainment Center" and not something else. Open source media center is not something we want. It's not a media center.

Just to show you that IT is possible:

For me, we are loosing the spirit.

May be this is a good compromise :
