Circle with bubbles in it. "Rybka" and "for the serious chess player" on the circle. blubbles come from the "Rybka" text.

Comments welcome :)
Parent - By InspectorGadget (*****) Date 2009-10-04 12:43
I noticed that in your earlier posts. Well, not bad Felix, not bad. You kept it simple :)

I like this shark very much made by Sedat:

I love it.  I think it is better with the text.

No.  This is abysmal.  A much better design would show the surface of some body of water, with a few shark fins and a big red stain in the water.

Or there could be the surface of some body of water with fish parts strewn here and there, and a big red stain in the water. Well, that could be the graphic for Shredder 12...
Parent - By Razor (****) Date 2009-10-04 17:21
Make the outer circle look like the crown on the head of the Queen chesspiece with perhaps the crown looking a little exaggerated to make you thing you are looking down the throat of a shark, i.e., it could be the top of the Queen's head or it could be the throat of a shark.  Any good?
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 19:46
I think the bubbles should not overlap the "b".
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 20:07
mmh, it's difficult, it easily looks unnatural. Also this way the "b" looks a bit like a russian b from distance :)
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 20:23
From the distance it reads Ry6ka. Perhaps for Rybka 6 that'd work.
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 20:28
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 20:54
Rybka isn't Russian.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-04 21:07
pffff :)
Parent - - By pokerpawn (***) Date 2009-10-06 14:09
like the middle one the best
Parent - By ernest (****) Date 2009-10-06 17:24
...looks like a blue, used (full) condom! :lol:
Parent - - By rookie (**) Date 2009-10-07 02:26
Too chlorinated, swimming-pool-like. A stylized shark fin in the water, very simple, would do it.
Parent - By Banned for Life (Gold) Date 2009-10-07 02:45
A stylized shark fin won't keep your ORP above 650 mv.
Parent - - By Sunny (***) Date 2009-10-07 04:32
All of these are good icons but surely a doubt on being a good Logo. Brand recall of Rybka is a fish. If a computer chess player sees Fish he/she will relate it with Rybka.

Is Rybka team trying to rebrand Rybka by having newer logo?
Has Rybka reached Maturity level in product life cycle?

If yes then Rybka definitely requires a Newer Logo :-)
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-07 10:04
We have no good logo currently. The Oswin fish doesn't fit well to different background colours, the current "logo" is just the text Rybka.
Parent - - By buffos (Silver) Date 2009-10-07 10:10
The text spoils it.
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-07 10:21
mmh, maybe a metal text looks better :)
Parent - - By Sunny (***) Date 2009-10-07 11:44
Why not select first one and also include a cute fish besides Rybka text..
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-07 11:57
would be too much I'd think.
Parent - By Sunny (***) Date 2009-10-07 15:19
Then select the last one with little changes on the outer font and font colors...as it indicates the target audience, custimers and players
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 08:05
Just curious on how would both concepts look together:

Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 11:14 Edited 2009-10-09 11:27
your metal looks interesting, I modified my suggestion :)
I attached the svg version so that you can modify it. (copyright license: modification and usage is only allowed if it contributes to the Rybka project :) )

Parent - - By Eelco de Groot (***) Date 2009-10-09 19:11
Mmm, am I the only who thinks these later changes do not work at all? Much too much water and boats and fishes, no SF, chess, start-up buttons or computers left in the logo now.

I only see a life buoy here thown to towards some poor passenger by Captain Iglo, the one from the fish sticks, commander on the bridge of H.M.S Tytanika, you know, this unsinkable ship that struck an iceberg in the Nordic Seas? The life buoy is too late however, the customer/castaway is drowning, and only some bubbles from his last screams break through the icy waters... The captain is probably still standing on his bridge and the band is still playing on deck but the ship is about to go under...



Sorry, but that is just what I see in it.

Eelco
Parent - By Banned for Life (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 21:35
We don't have Captain Iglo here but he looks really gay so I guess that is the tie-in.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 22:47
omg, they've stolen my logo idea. I'll call my lawyer :)
Parent - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 21:41

> your metal looks interesting


My problem with your metal is that the light source is unknown, so I made a metal with it coming from top left, I tried different effects and this one ended looking more like grey transparent glass, but I liked it.

The problem is that even though I use vectors, they can't be exported as SVG's, so our projects should remain separated. If you have a way of exporting or editing XAR files, I'll upload mine.
Parent - - By yanquis1972 (****) Date 2009-10-09 19:03
haha, i like it. a mean-ass little fish is a good compromise.
Parent - By Uly (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 21:42
Thanks, I'd like my fish to end being Rybka's mascot, even if she doesn't end in the logo.
Parent - By Quapsel (****) Date 2009-10-11 06:19
Rybka was introduced as 'little fish'.
And I see no reason to change this.
Yes, your fish could be fitting.

Chessbase will definitely come with a beautiful Rybka DVD cover.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-07 10:52
:-D
Parent - By Sunny (***) Date 2009-10-07 16:45
Why not include a fish is last one (Centre of circle) a cute fish and then take a feedback and I am sure people with love it......
Parent - - By Eagleclaww (***) Date 2009-10-09 18:23
Its actually really good. I like the last one the best. Don't think putting "rybka" in the middle of it does it justice. But the ones with the text in white circle are great.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-09 22:52
thanks, at least one who sees some progress in the logos ;)
Parent - - By Quicksort (**) Date 2009-10-10 23:18
Felix, how about, instead of bubbles, a target with a King figure right in its center ?
This would clearly signal Rybka' s intent.
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-10 23:44
no, Rybka may be more than a chess engine in the future.
Parent - By Quicksort (**) Date 2009-10-11 11:20
Yes, a brand of soda for instance, hence bubbles.
Parent - By Fulcrum2000 (****) Date 2009-10-11 11:43
WoW, it has some brilliant designs listed there.
Parent - By turbojuice1122 (Gold) Date 2009-10-11 16:12
I like the first one for Rybka, though the bottom one might be a good one for Aquarium.
Parent - By buffos (Silver) Date 2009-10-12 09:00
the last 2 are clearly better than the first ones.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-12 13:21
ok, the current logo should be ready. I changed the font to look like an engraving and made some little light changes. I'll make one of the famous logo polls :)
- - By Steffelino (**) Date 2009-10-04 12:03
Is this a suggestion for the new Rybka 4?
