I finished the logo late last night. Here is my original draft which would have used the font from the Alliance of Serenity:
And here is what they agreed to use. Here’s the final version, approved and added to the launch of the plug-in. I personally avoided the red because to me it looks like HAL or the Terminator, but, they did not associate with those cultural references:
I’m not saying it is brilliant or anything, but it is ok for such a minor product, and I saved the company a thousand bucks by doing it in-house. The tricky bit was that even though the logo will only be seen at about this size on screen, it had to be designed as something about two-feet across, because the logos for the various plug-ins get printed on a banner (for trade shows). So the size was such that my home computer could handle it but my crappy computer at work totally choked on it. Hence the working at home bit.
