Redesign this from the ground up. What would you use? Corporate sanitization, and minimalism, or embrace the retards? Maybe a mix of both, or just minimalist Yotsuba?
I would keep it as it is. Maybe add more shading and a drop shadow.
I was making a textboard once a while ago. I think the most important aspect is keeping it simple, yet allowing quick navigation to wherever you want to go. 4chan does that fine, but requires many tabs (if possible in a treestyletab structure) to work efficiently.You don't really want much visual bloat here. Keep it simple and compact (although, understand that people don't like reading very wide paragraphs).
>>423598I like wide paragraphs.
>>423683Sure you do honey. Sit back down.
>>423588Give it more of a Skeuomorphic metallic sheen on the logo. Put an inside drop shadow on the text. This would help show the internet that 4chan has been around for a long time and is the last bit of old internet to exist.
NEW 4chan LOGO!!!1!!
>>423588>>423598>>423604>>423617Some parts are C&P because im lazy Then again, I just spent like 30 minutes doing this for no reason, this board is dead
>>423790Dear God that is awful
>>423588I wouldn't.>I'm either killing time or time is killing me.Because I can't kill myself.
>>423849You’re previous version was better.
>>423849Pretty bad but I like the background YOU ARE HERE FOREVER
>>423872>>423871>You’re previous version was better.Why? >Pretty bad but I like the background YOU ARE HERE FOREVERWhat's bad about it?
There is value in not changing things
>>423810This is cute. Good work anon.
step aside losers
>>423849best on here
>>423597It's good already, it doesn't need shading or drop shadows it removes the sovl
>>424148>interneam I missing a joke or something?
>>423849Looks like an ad website, like an engineer did it. There's no soul or concept
>>424582>he doesn't know
>>423604my mango is to blow up
from the last thread
>>424926I really like this one, also, what's the font, or is it individual custom letters
>>423588Don't worry boys,I got ya covered.
another from the previous thread
>>425339>serifs>for a website logo
>>423810This is good
>>424148Interne hate machine? Que?
>>425120But do you?
>>424582>>425393>outing yourself as newfags this hard
>>424926made one better.
>>423588Ground-up is my field. Step one is forgetting the logo and focusing on how to exploit the cultural niche the site represents. Anonymity and memetic repetition are primary themes; the chan format and other modes of discussion (actual convos, baiting/trolling, etc.) are secondary; the history of the board is the least important - it's not a salable brand and if you don't like it buy a pass. >>423598 is on the right track UX-wise by emphasizing post numbers but his UI is fucking garbage and should be almost all in-text without the bullshit. He should also make mockups with text that wraps or breaks instead of imaginary optimal scenarios. >>425339 despite being just a logo this at least thematically understands the piss-bucket functionality of the board. The recycling icon just marginally communicates the repetitive memetic process the board uses to sustain activity. I think the theme could be expanded by considering the zero-accountability post-whatever-the-fuck type attitude of the site. So some sort of piss-in-the-piss-bucket type representation, over just recycling.Everyone else just put forward vapid aesthetic crap and memes so not much discussion or criticism there.
guys i think the autistic sperg above me likes piss in buckets
Sorry I meant the autistic sperg above THIS comment likes piss in buckets
>>423588I win this competition, too many trolls on this board compared to the pros, like me
>>425537Interesting, I appreciate the actual reply with thought put into it. Do you think leaning into themes of anarchy are too far, or does it just depend on how you go about that?
>>425867 4chan has only ever had delusions of anarchy. There have always been admins/mods that delete posts outside their rules & "standards," and the community has mostly self-regulated itself into essentially polarized theater. A real anarchic environment wouldn't bother calling out reddit spacing or be so defensive about itself. Unless you have other examples in mind, I don't think anything really gets close except /s4s/. The many facets of 8ch were probably more of what you're thinking of. The breadth of the question also depends on if the "ground-up" we care about is just a new wrapper on the standing philosophy or a total rebrand with new marketing targets and identity. The OP is surface-level, and everyone here is just goofing around with clovers and palettes so we're not missing much there.
>>425880 Decent. Almost like a barrier reminding me I'm here forever. >>425881 the fuck does this mean though.
>>425904Lame illustrator faffery. Get rid of the paper strip motif if it's not doing anything to articulate a concept.
>>425903means greentext.>>425911thanks for the critique.
>>425913This is generic advice for everyone here. Please take 10 minutes to pencil 25-50 thumbnails before you touch any technology. You can *think* you're fluid in that workspace, but you're just not. Even 30 seconds toyboxing shapes together in illustrator is excessive for what could be a 5 second gestural exercise. If you're going to leap over the thematic foundations of a rebrand in order to fart out logos, you should at least dive deeper into the iterative process of iconography. Thumbnailing is so trivial it shouldn't even constitute advice.
>>423588hmmm? why would I think about anything at all.Also I actually dislike minimalism.
You may wake up after this, call yourself a graphic Designer each time you wake up, but you know, deep down, you will never beat my masterpiece.
>>425935/g/od... I KNEEL!
>>425935>the thing on the right is femaleMake it a male and it's gold.
>>425939Doesnt make much of a difference for me.
>>425903>it didn't occur to him
>>4259694chan isn't a pharmacy.
>>425589everybody else going minimalist, well, except for this champion >>424187but i like this. i hate when corporations try to streamline their logo, why does it have to be as minimalist as possible? i like this. >>425843>>425844oooOOOOH but i like this, too. that's really cool.>>425976the clover here is pretty
>>425976Very DIY-esque.I dig it.
>>425974Then why does everyone tell me to take my meds?
>>423588professional and minimal
>>426125The 4 looks offThe clover is goodJust my opinion
>>426003Thanks! I styled it >>425843 after old 1970s logod
>>425976this has SOVL
>>425527This is fan4stic!
>>426125this is good, perfect shape for the green things, smallest deviation from perfect circle while still getting the image across
>>426496I suppose "getting the idea across" is more what I meant
>>426496>green thingsWeren't they supposed to be leaves from a clover?
>>426499Looks like chuppa chuppa lollipops
>>426526What does a 4chan-flavored lollipop taste like?
>>426586Vinegary gooch with a hint of feces
>>426594Ugh, thanks, just imagining it makes me want to retch.Just like this site [spoiler]sometimes[/spoiler].Thanks, anon.
>>423597like this? its fucking disgusting mate terrible advice, you shouldn't be browsing /gd/
>>426697>>425315I get it, but I think we need to let that joke just breathe a little.Get me a new site that we can compare 4chan to in mockery.
>>425341Nothing wrong with serifs
>>423598Ohhh, pixel-like textboards.... IM GONNA CUM
>>423588im new to this whole graphics design thing, but here's my idea for a logo change
>>423849tragic>why?if you need to ask... there is not one correct decision here
>>424187homestuck more likehomosuck gottem
>>425844hey anon, could you recolor in green as well? Curious as to how that would look.
>>428452>>428471this graphic design shit easyget your soulless zero-effort sfw corporate rebrands here get in line folks
>>428452>>428475Part 2 tech startup maxx
>>425870>The OP is surface-level, and everyone here is just goofing around with clovers and palettes so we're not missing much there.What else would be posted?
>>423588I would have a meta 4chan board and a general lifestyle/daily living boardOh and a social/dating board (not a meetup board but one to talk about seinfeld-tier social rules and stuff
>>425870A real anarchy is ruled by the social norms of the people who inhabit it, rather than rules set from above.4chan is more anarchy than you give it credit
>>428585>ruled by the social norms of the people who inhabit itAren't we ruled by the social norms of the people that inhabit where we live anyway?And do you think that the jannies and mods live by the social norms of the average 4channer?
>>424585Not bait, they're right
the text is vertical to represent 4chan's japanese originsit's off-center position, while bowing left, represents the spectrum of political viewpoints one can find hereit uses comic sans because of the font's infamous reputation onlineit's color is derived from "Yotsuba" quotelinksthe flower is constructed of caret-like symbols with a particular one having it's own color, resembling greentextthis is to show the flower, or product, of 4chan; greentext stories that get posted all over the netultimately it's shape might remind one of a dandelion; a weed everyone knows and is aware of, yet chooses to ignorethis is my redesign
>>428739An effortpost? On my 4chan?
>>428739Where's the gay blowjob?
>>425969I like this one a lot.
Need a logo with a spinning clover.
straight up this
>>423588Made this a while back on a similar thread. The 4chan logo was made with whatever windows font was available, so I did the same here (montserrat) a basic clean font seen everywhere. The clover is just a play on the existing leaves, and I made several variations by sampling the colors
the 4chan logo looks good because of its use of whitespace and anyone trying to take that away is retarded>>426125wins so far
>>429107here's your whitespace bro
Did my worst
>>425969We already had a winner
>>425976Gives me the same vibe as those Fancy Pants flash games
>>429757Very Y2Kesque.Would this happen to be inspired by a YouTube tutorial, perchance?
>>429758I used to play jet set radio and would beat off to the green girl. or any girl on screen really. unnhh.
>>429760>green girlPoetic choice of words there.
>>429757Looks like one those radio stations in gta5
>>423588no need to, just drop it in the minimalism bucket
>>430749They should just make that the logo for /g/ and bask in the eternal seethe
>>428965Top one is nicest imo
>>428486>>428475>>428452this is full of win
>>428739the asshole of the internet
>>430812Mmmm, retrokino. I like it.
>>424148lol this one is the cutest
>>429757Looks like Yotsuba! I like it.
>>431539I don't get it.Also nice upload hour.
>>426709Yeah honestly it's gotten so stale. So many shitty memes on this site won't die so that we can get new ones.
>>431539I'm just as confused about this logo redesign as I was when DeviantArt had their logo redesign.
>>423849This is garbo
>>425844>>425843>>423604I like these
>>423598this looks really good
>>428739I thought 4chan is right-leaning
>>432969Too much story and nothing visually good about it
>>4330414CHan fertilizer company
>>423849eventually you're gonna have to stop using that font
>>428417Good attempt but there's only two clovers. Why not four? After all it is named 4chan.
>>425843These design style needs a comeback
>>429503Unironically only good one.
>>426607lol ur mean
this is the future of graphic design. it'll be coming from me
>>423588Remove the built in extension and catalog so that retards dont treat the site like a forum
>>433462How is it supposed to be treated?
>>430749Kek i like this
same but slightly different. idk about the leafs but the font (humnst777 bt )should be able to act same as verdana
>>424582>>424597>>425508I'm over a decade but and I don't know why but idk that one
>>429503fixed it for you
>>433801oops i made a better version haha! crazy i know!
>>433196Just 4chan anons selling their green faeces
>>433801>>433809this is absolute dogshit never come back on this board
>>433881let me see your design.oh wait. you dont have one! hahahaha! holy crap!
>>423588i'm fine with how my 4chins work, i have a version that replaces the blue with orange for nsfw boards
>>424148should be a banner if it isn't already
>>433349Thank you anon <3
>>423588sheeeeit i got dis mayn
>>433921Oh, /gd/, you never disappoint.
