Kodi logo suggestions and ideas
#16
@StigtriX
concept 5 is very nice, how does it look with a small i ?
#17
Something like this, I reckon Wink :

Concept 6

#18
As we have a mixture of nationalities and languages, where people may say it differently, what is the official way on how to pronounce the new name?

Koh-dee

or

Code-Eye

Please note that there are several areas, in these forums, in the comments of the blog, and on social media, where you are welcome to complain endlessly about the new name, the Foundation, how we came up with the name, and even me as a human being. In this forum thread we are ONLY looking for logo concepts for the name Kodi. Anything else can and almost certainly will be deleted. I'm going to give users roughly 24 hours to migrate their complaining posts to some other thread. After that, I'll be deleting anything distracting from the intended conversation.

But maybe don't only think what XBMC/KODI offers to you technically, but also why and how you use it and what you "experience" using it. As you could imagine we tried to not be to technical/geeky with the name as well (even though it originated from the remote symbols somehow), or we would have looked for acronyms or alike again.

I think Kodi is great, for me the most important feature is the ability to centralize all types of media I've got on my home network and to access as well a lot of media out there in the vast web. and the ability to adapt to any new media that may come in the future, or media that has not yet been incorporated (like eBooks).

We are aware that XBMC foundation is working with a professional company to define the logo (amet said so in another thread), this thread is a considerate deference that Ned Scott has with us in this forum, and it is welcome. I any of this input is useful, then I am glad you can use it.

Needs to be refined a little, but here's mine.

but ultimately they decided to move away from that visual concept. I think that this would be a great opportunity for the community to come up with a logo, much like the mascot development a while back. The announcement logo looks extremely generic, like letters spelled out with some liquid... there is no identity connection with the name, no real connection with the logo.

So this has been far from a easy process for the Team, and if we could have opened it up to the community we more than likely would have, however doing that could have caused so many complications in finding free domain names as anything that might look like becoming popular could be registered by those out to make a quick buck.

The one idea that seemed to gain some traction actually came from me working back from how the name could be visualised, I was playing with using remote buttons to spell out words, I was also trying to keep a link to what the project was, so my thought process went something like CODE -> KODE -> KODA

KODA

However again I missed a trademark registration that could give us problems, so then suggestion was made by another for

KODI

and based on what I had done someone suggested a logo of

However the logo no longer seemed to fit as well as before, plus by this time a number of people weren't so keen on the idea of using remote buttons in the logo or at least using them in a more subtle way.

So it evolved that kodi would just be a name with no meaning and was the runaway winner in our internal vote.

I think the kodi remote button logo is awsome!
Let the graphic artists add some metallic or something and i think we gave a great logo.
Please skip all the mascot scrap, it is ugly.
And no silly looking borders... Like the last xbmc logo.

Kodi
MultiMedia Player

Does this mean that the remote button logo and variations of are off the table? Because I have to say, I thought I hated the new name because it seemed to mean nothing, be reminiscent of nothing, and call up only bad associations. The idea that the name was inspired by the shape of common remote buttons changes things considerably for me. Now the name actually seems to have significance and be rather clever. In my opinion, any logo should definitely incorporate at least the basic shape of those buttons. Personally, I think the above logo is damn near perfect in it's simplicity and symmetry - add a little back glow and a sub-title and I think it'd look great.
#28
Given the reaction people had to the announcement logo, I think all options are back on the table ;)

I also really liked the ideas that we could do with playback buttons. I think there's a lot of variation within that idea that we've yet to explore, as well.
#29
I deeply don't like the remote button variant. It makes it unreadable
