RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - Ned Scott - 2014-08-21

I keep seeing this pop up in various logos suggestions, and I'm liking it more and more. Instead of using just the play symbol in the "O", or using Play in other parts of the logo, instead using the directional control pad with center select. Up, down, left, right, select. It can even have both directional pad and play symbol, or directional pad and "K" from Kodi.

For example, that latest submission from samfisher. I've also seen it in submissions from uNiversal, Zeros, and ximon's animated logo.

It allows us to put that little spin on the logo, but with something more unique than just the play symbol.

EDIT: it also makes it easy to make a smaller "icon" based off of the full logo.

for example:

Pretty slick logo. Smile But it may not scale down too well for logo-size.

I'm liking this one very much too. Vibrant, playful, scalable, and with a far more functional 'play' button than others I've seen with a power button.

Beautiful. But maybe a bit too 'Hobbit' for my taste.

RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - un1versal - 2014-08-21

That makes the O redundant, otherwise reads koodi


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - jjd-uk - 2014-08-21

To me with the metallic grey > it's looking like it's spelling something like KDODi


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - un1versal - 2014-08-21

Yes or that, too much going on in this concept used like this kdodi or koodi why I suggested the the logo be standalone and then the complete kodi word is next to it. personally though I still prefer sams other last previous entries.

Hopefully am not treading on toes here by doing a little mod. But I think you mean something like this.

Plus it takes away the extra > what a few of the above posts mention?

Yeah something like that but in a different colour, the > colour is too close to the up ^ colour in my view

Big Grin I just choose first colour I came across.
Its samfishers work I was around to give a little insight into what you asked. Am sure with his skills he can tweak it a lot better than me. Smile
But I like his idea, Works well.


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - jjd-uk - 2014-08-21

I'm also wondering if as a subtle reference to the different platforms we run on if there's anyway to include the colour palettes of the different platform logos as at http://xbmc.org/download/ so samfishers is nearly there, so a colour palette of:

Windows logo blue Image

Linux penguin yellow Image

Android green Image

Raspberry Pi red (or whatever it is) Image

OS-X/iOS metallic grey Image

So maybe > could be Raspberry Pi red Smile


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - christara - 2014-08-21

Yer I like that idea, Should look good. And I think that could easily work on a black or white background.
Plus many more backgrounds with the likes of pictures or textures.


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - czarekk - 2014-08-21

I do not like the cursor around K. "O" looks more like a button.
