New logo for Bittah

Hi people, long time no speak...

Recently I saw a stream of Midair that Hobbs had linked in discord. The clunky old Bittah logo showed up in a screen transition and made me cringe a bit. I think it's time to give the logo a rework, I'm still alive and making graphics so why not. It's been 15 odd years since I made the original, but better late than never!

This is something I sent to Hobbs that I was working on, just a muck around within 2 hours or so. I will keep working on it and make a few variations, then if you guys are happy with it (if you even care) I'll put all of the assets up so we can use them. Perhaps if Midair gets traction and tribes finds a resurgence in popularity we could overhaul the site too?

I hope your ok with criticism. Highly appreciate your efforts and I think a change is a good idea. But I'm not sure I like this variation. It looks a bit.. teenage angsty? Is it possible to give it more of a serious lean? If that makes sense.

Yo, yeah sure. Wasn't sure if anyone still used these forums or mainly Discord, but I'm always open to feedback. Haven't done a proper esports/gaming sort of a logo yet so happy to hear what people think. It does look a bit bad boy/90's ish, I'll post more once I've got time to play around with it more. My main inspiration was NBA or sporting type logos so that's what I've been looking at. I need to clean up a lot of the lines and can make him look a bit more straight edge rather than angsty, see how it goes.

i'd asked a few people over the years if they knew who made the original logo, mystery solved thx. heh, we've been calling it the 'bittah cat' for a long time, i doubt many of us realised those were horns :oops:

must admit the shiney backgrounds in the hype trailer made the ol' logo look a little dated. i still quite like the current one (bias), especially when compared to older versions like:

have been checking out some ESL-style logo's and they're very much like what rae's come up with. we'll be putting on a couple more tournaments (TBD) and it'd be awesome to see if we get something a bit fancier for twitch etc.

eg:
Image

i agree with sotha that he/it could look a little more pissed off. maybe its the angle on the eyebrows or being able to see too much of the eyes or the position of the horns. if you have the time to try a couple of variants that'd be awesome.

wonder how a cat would look :wink:

Hobbs I can't believe you thought the bittah logo was a cat.

Blatantly devil horns.

given the age of bittah and most of its members I think middle aged cranky would work on a logo

Hail and well met old friendz!!!!

Yeah I'm not sure what it was ever supposed to be, can we go with demon cat? That's kinda cool. Maybe I should give it an evil snarl and some teeth?

Still messing with it but haven't done much, line work is still messy. Getting a bit abstract perhaps?

Sup Rae,

I prefer the left one. Although I think we should try a new version that still looks like a cat :)
