I asked for ideas on the first post because I wanted to avoid people going ahead and working on finalized designs before we know what we actually want. Now some people have submitted ideas and others have submitted designs.
From the links that I can open, I got the following designs and my opinion on it. I try to keep this as generic as possible so that we can narrow down on a general design instead of talking about something too specific.
I like that it’s easy to see and recognize from far away (what and Icon should be). I am a bit torn on the details because it looks a bit like a patchwork. I would think we should have something that is even easier to recognize and looks a bit cleaner than that also for the pattern/fill.
I like the idea of an open chest as a main logo. I am however not so sure what could be coming out of the box and the background since white might look funny on the server list background.
If we put writing like that on the logo, I think it should be better readable. I also think we need a something more unique or story-telling than the blocks or the mirrored U as a main object in the logo. I like the round text around it since it gives some shape to it.
As a summary, I would say that either a “U” to symbolize “Uncovery” or another distinct object/background to symbolize an Uncovery (like the chest) is a good thing to start on. I would not want to put too much text on it for now since the “Uncovery Minecraft” already will be on the server list next to it. “Build your dream” can be on it if it fits well on the logo and is easy to read.
