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).

Give 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.

Ground-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.

Interesting, 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.

>>425911
thanks for the critique.
>>
>>425913
This 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.

the text is vertical to represent 4chan's japanese origins
it's off-center position, while bowing left, represents the spectrum of political viewpoints one can find here
it uses comic sans because of the font's infamous reputation online
it's color is derived from "Yotsuba" quotelinks
the flower is constructed of caret-like symbols with a particular one having it's own color, resembling greentext
this is to show the flower, or product, of 4chan; greentext stories that get posted all over the net
ultimately it's shape might remind one of a dandelion; a weed everyone knows and is aware of, yet chooses to ignore
this is my redesign

Made 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
