Kodi logo suggestions and ideas
(2014-09-17, 22:34)Infiniti Z Wrote: I'm a huge fan of XBMC since a couple of years back. I use it every day, to either watch movies or TV-shows from my collection.

As a graphic designer I was not particularly impressed by the logo that was originally shown for Kodi so I decides to make one myself. After a quick Google search I found this thread with more awesome concepts, so what the heck, I'll post my version here as well and maybe get some feedback.

The idea of my concept is to stay true to what XBMC really is about, movies. Unlike the original logo and many concepts here I went for a more serious look - something that to some degree resembles a film studio logo. I chose to incorporate the film strip into the logo since it's a classic item that we associate with movies. I chose to keep the blue/greenish color because I think it really works and is unique among movie services. Others mostly use red, orange, green or other colors, so this one will stand out. I kept the typography pretty clean since there's already plenty going on with the film strip and the bigger and smaller font.

Some goals that I had in mind while designing was:
  • The logo should look good on a black background. A movie program should use lots of blacks and inky colors, and so the logo must look good with them. A lot of people here seem have made just a simple logo (with no real connection to what the program is about) and then just put it on a spectacular background to make it look "fresh" and "modern". That is not how the logo will be used in real life.
  • The text must be readable. Some concepts here have taken it too far and it's hard to even discern the word Kodi.
  • It must be classy, serious, traditional but also unique. This was important because when using XBMC/Kodi you always get the feeling that this a serious project that is being developed by people with real passion for movies, so I wanted the logo to convey that.

I'm loving the celluloid attempt. Would be great to see more of them, because it always brings up cineastic feelings Smile
