Kodi logo suggestions and ideas

People do that to accentuate the logo but its best done with a simple background with little distraction. samfisher's logo uses a background to accentuate it as well, the diagonal lines and the gradients pretty much tell you that.

It doesnt look like the author just found this thing called photoshop and this thread and a case of beer.
Some of us are new here like myself, atleast speaking for myself I can say that I'm doing it only because I think the product needs a facelift and since I guess some of us support OSS? So if there are people running around with a case of beer and trying to do a logo for Kodi, let them be. Secondly this sort of non-designer opinion/non-sequitur helps nothing, like saying people who use photoshop to design a logo, you could but you shouldn't and I'm pretty sure people know around here in this thread. But my point is making statements like these like you know what you're saying when you don't just adds up to a lot of opinions and less of constructive criticism.

It doesnt look like a 2 year old did it.
2yr olds don't make logos. If you're referring to the simplicity in logos in general then that is there for a very good reason, so it translates well onto any medium. Again, your non-designer opinions ain't cutting it out.

It looks like a fun logo, done is a tasteful manner.
Sure, fun but cluttered with too many ideas into it. Tape, person, media, what not. A logo should have no more than 1 -2 ideas.

it is original and instantly recognizable.
Original? How so? Recognisable, hardly. D is completely illegible. K has a disease. i is completely lost in the wild, bad capheight, bad everything about it. Overall stroke weight is all over the place, optical visual balance isn't even considered here. The only saving grace is the icon and even that has issues with curves. But then again doghousemedia should tackle all that I suppose but if they were asked to stay close to samfisher's original idea because the community and people like you think it's so good, then the logo is illegible.

So almost all other entries here have a lot to live up to.
Actually no. This is why I decided to revert back to your post. Thing is nobody is competing here, everyone's just doing their thing in the hope that Kodi has a decent logo. Nobody is trying or shouldn't have to live up to any logo in this thread.

You said all these not because you actually hate the image, you said it cus uNiversal is used to using offensive comments on people on here (NO offense intended), IMO your castigation of the image isn't cool at all. Trust me i've been there before, I respect the fact that you're a designer and it takes lots of hours to strike up something stunning as the ones you post here.
That is to say:
Do to ceaser, what ceaser has done to thee
