My logo

For our website mine being YouTube Gaming I needed a suitable logo like all logos. I needed something that consists of the two. So after hours of thinking of stuff and constantly changing my mind I came up with this. The logo has a black background and it’s a combo of a game controller and the YouTube symbol. I made my creation on Photoshop. First I outlined the YouTube play button with a magnetic lasso and inverted selection to delete the red background. I then did the same with the inside red start button which I regret doing, but it still looks good. Then I did the controller. I split it in half with the lasso tool again and then got rid of the red background through the same process and the first image. I then put the split up controller on both sides of the YouTube play button. I was proud of my final product, but as you may notice it’s a little different on the website because you get access to filters and I chose one that made it have that 3D static effect. Overall the logo looks good to me and definitely gets the meaning across that being YouTube Gaming.

Logo ideas

I have to think of many logo designs and decide what my own logo will look like. I am debating at this stage whether to have words in it or not. So far I don’t think I should, but I definitely think I need the YouTube logo in it as it’s YouTube related. I see in the group of logos they all have a range in colours so I know that choosing a certain colour won’t matter they all seem to be eye catching. I also see that they get the meaning across in the imagery. For example ‘Subway’ has a arrow on the ‘Y’. Arrows usually point at something to show the way of direction referring back to the way in the word subway. So I hope that through a couple more brainstorming sessions I will finally think of a good looking logo.
