Logo design is a surprisingly tricky art. Making something that is attractive and iconic but instantly readable. My instincts run to throwing a bunch of detail in there, cluttering it up. But I’ve learned the hard way, that looks pretty shit at smaller resolutions.

There’s a reason Nike uses that swoosh and Apple their, well, apple.

    Looks great indeed.
    I’m not an artist, but one idea appeared in my mind. Since “Rogue Moon” phrase has that menacing hue, how about somehow implementing it in a logo? Like, making the upper edge red, or strategically placing background red glow (inner our outer).

    Some company do it, tying the content to imagery:

    In any case, your new logo looks really good now without all that, so maybe it’s not worth fixing what ain’t broken.

    “Rogue Moon” to me means mysterious. So I like the darkened sliver, hinting at something unseen, unknown.

    Also, this is the basic version, which I may modify for various games to suit the mood of the game. In SC I’ll likely create a green variant, to mimic the rest of SC’s “matrixey” monitor look.
