New TARDIS Guide logo!

Hey everyone, as much as I love the TARDIS icon :tardis: I wanted a logo that is more unique to the site. I have been working with a designer who came up with the concept, then I spent ages meticulously adding circles and creating paths to animate them and… tada! My own Gallifreyan animated logo:

TG logo emblem

(See the homepage for it in situ - a new design for the homepage is in progress, which will make it look even better)

The book represents the ‘Guide’ part of the site - a reference book. Out of it, a Gallifreyan object which represents space and time, planets and constellations. A new typeface with a lantern on the ‘I’ to represent the TARDIS!

What do you think?

It will take me a little while to change the logos everywhere, including in the forum and things like favicons, watch this space!

I like the logo itself. I do feel like it might be improved by adding a space (or period) between “TARDIS” and “Guide”, and maybe a little more space between letters.

Maybe slightly bigger text, too, just because it feels like the detail of the lantern on the i gets a bit lost when it is shrunk down at the top of the page…

Just playing with it a little…

Could this version work better without the lantern on the “I”, if you have it between the two words? Looks a bit odd to me this way.

Yeah, could probably use some sort of tweak that way. Adding the second lantern was pretty much the last thing I did, as I was debating between that and just a space. That, and I tried Handles there for a moment, but it didn’t look right. Here’s what it looks like without it between the words.

(Also didn’t add any extra spacing to the letters, because they overlap a bit, so were harder to separate then I’d like…)
