View Full Version : Logo...

The Serpent biting it's own tail seems to be everywhere nowadays. First Luxology takes on a serpent that looks like Newtek's slug, and now so does Discreet.

that was in Ireland caves, etc...
but someone needs a little more creativity in Discreet's art dept?

To quote office space:

Michael in being asked if he should change his name because he shares his name with Michael Bolten the singer:

"Why should I be the one to change it? He's the one who sucks."

NewTek or LightWave?

Alias (the company logo) have changed their logo too, but it's slightly more original than Discreet's MAX 6 effort.

Maybe LW's could do with updating a little (similar to the colour change from [6] to [7]), but it is the most recognisable logo I've seen for a 3D app.

just vary the color. everyone knows that logo for lightwave. pretty distinct.

Heck even alias is using a chrome version of it. :)

each version just change a color or something that keeps it pretty much intact.

you'd think alias would have told the designers that it looked a little too much like LW's logo upside down.

is that the spirals are really based on ancient Gaelic myths... wonder if that has any sort of effect on the Churches looking into Genesis and similar type products?

don't mind the LightWave logo, but the NewTek one I'm not too keen on!

i was thinking the lightwave swirl.

Not the sideways N that is Newteks logo.

to tell you the true it is so forgettable that i've been arguing based on Lightwave not Newtek. Not bad just fades into the background after you see it. Of course that may be what they want.

They have a great logo for LW and video toaster's logo is fun and very cool.

Newtek should make the logo more prominent. After all you want people to know that Lightwave, video toaster and genesis are all made by them. Newtek's logo should be just as important any of it's products.

I like NewTek's logo. And I like LW's logo. I wouldn't change a thing about them (maybe the color of the LW logo for 8, but they seem to have already gone to the blue).
