Vega Strike Menus and Logotype

Postby rivalin » Sat Dec 03, 2011 12:25 pm

In conjunction with coming up with a new HUD, I've been working on redesigning the in-game menus and by extension working on new Vega Strike Logotype.

I've zipped them here http://www.box.com/s/ko8a453usfik7dk4z8r5 because they look much better seen full screen.

The aim with the new logo was to build on the current one but to focus on making it a bit more versatile in graphic design terms, as to readability, background matching, scalability and so on.

If people like it I can also work on a new website/forum theme etc, a more coherent graphic design for VS as a whole would hopefully attract more people to contribute and build on the momentum that the project finally seems to be acquiring.

Nice, looks kind of like a variation on LCARS (Star Trek's OS). Clean, uniform, intuitive, how soon can they be ready? :mrgreen: How are the base computer interfaces coming?

Let me be honest.

I don't like the new logo, or the new main menu.

All seem overly simplistic. Like a minute's worth of work. Or less. Not to mention it looks like a gender sign.

The current logo is a very good design IMNSHO. I'd suggest people work around it, not trying to replace it. The sources, I think, are somewhere to grab and use.

The current main menu is lots better than the one you propose, the new being little more than text and a few lines. Hardly worth noticing.

I do like, however, the effect on the loading screen. But it assumes text rendering capabilities we don't have yet.

In short, I would go for coherence. But coherence with the latest trend of VS art (which is the logo and the main menu, one of the latest additions to art style), rather than depart from them.

PS: It's not personal. I like the HUD.

i'm with klauss, the new menu screen just has too much wasted space. Maybe try using some bigger text and larger pictures or something, just too much black

I think the biggest issue isnt that we need a new menu but the rather functionless gui we have.

Functionless in which sense?
