I think you can't use a hummingbird as part of the logo.

It's already used :

@Prof Yaffle: I understand what you want. A symbol, something that captures the soul/spirit of Kodi, not just what it does, but also how it does, and tells something about the people behind it. Yeah... that's awesome, but Xbmc never had anything unique like that (like the Ferrari's Horse, or the Apple's... Apple!), that's why they choose to use the media buttons symbols and that's why we are focusing so much on them.

BUT. I elaborated something in my mind, this is a symbol of passion, freedom of spirit, hope, energy, new ideas, efficiency, creativity, attraction, inspiration and so much more. And it looks like a K!!! Big Grin

A firefly.

Note: this is just a draft.

Edit: What! I just found out fireflies communicate using light pulses, like a remote! So cool! Big Grin

I really like this train of thought!
Much better than the media buttons. If you create an icon with a play button you'll have a 1000 other apps with roughly the same button. For me the logo doesn't need to look like anything kodi does (play media, etc). Your example of a firefly is really cool Smile !

@Smobbo: Thanks! I like the firefly idea too, but maybe devs are looking for something more media-player related, a logo that immediately tells people that Kodi is an entertainment software, and not other stuff. I dunno, that's why I make different kinds of logos Smile

@ned Scott: Like this?

Just for inspiration! Big Grin

me too, that top right one is genius. maybe you can develop it a little bit.
so far a lot of your designs would be competing for my vote. where do you take all this creativity from?

also kudos again to everyone else contributing here!
this thread should convince everyone that _a_ name change was a blessing for kodi.


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - samfisher - 2014-09-08

@juramusger: Thanks! I could say the creativity flows in my veins, I can't stop it! Big Grin

Just another one. Evolution/simplification of the flower logo.

So when are we going to narrow these down to a vote? So much creativity!

By far my favorite.
Clean, simple, elegant, easy to use as skin/app icon, just perfect.

Also your latest "butterfly look" design looks nice (like all your other designs) but for some reason it looked familiar but couldn't put a finger on it (yet).

I agree but reminded me the msn logo:

Thanks everyone! Big Grin
OK, so I developed that idea a little bit.

I prefer the last one, it's very simple!


RE: Kodi logo suggestions and ideas - jjd-uk - 2014-09-09

Very nice, but your Post#1085 design is my favourite.

thanks for picking up that idea!
definitely the last one, I think that idea works best with straight lines.

when it comes to my "favourite" I'm torn between this and one from about 25 pages back...
edit: this one:
