LOGO DESIGN COMPETITION



Jackboot Games is currently looking to rebrand the Festung Europa logo (hereinafter “FE”) and we need community help! We are looking for you, Graphic Artist Person (hereinafter “Applicant”), who can create a professional, awe-inspiring, to-hell-and-back, WW2 experience capturing, tactical gameplay mood generating, and truly unique branding for FE (did we forget something?).

FE Overview

Take your place at the front lines as the Allied forces face the might of the German war machine during one of the most pivotal moments in World War II. Experience the Battle of Normandy, from the bloody landing beaches of D-Day to the desperate, desolate fields outside of Falaise, fighting side by side with your squad mates in close combat with the enemy.

How To Enter The Contest

1. Register a forum account via Jackboot Games’ community at http://forums.jackbootgames.com

2. Embed a reasonable size and resolution sample logo(s) into the logo contest thread located here

3. Use only a trusted image hosting website and embed the image url into the forum’s BB code (i.e. link here)

4. (optional) write a statement, in 60 words or less, explaining how your image embodies the spirit of FE

 

Logo Requirements

• Professional: The logo must meet recent graphic design standards and evolving trends, scale to any size without losing quality, facilitate brand recognition and appeal, have been created in a fully licensed graphic design software, no copyrighted material was used or aided in whole or in part in the creation of any and all logo submissions by any applicant(s) and reasonable judgement and sensitivity is used prior to posting any logo submission(s) onto Jackboot Games, LLC owned and operated community forum.

• Theme: Must capture World War II on D-Day Plus 1 in Normandy, France or anywhere in Europe during or shortly after this period. Can be gritty, grungy or clean in design. Should capture historical accuracy; team, tactical and combined arms gameplay experience; and should not conflict with the overall vision of FE.

• Color: There are no limitations and any color can be used. However, keep in mind that your logo must be presentable, easily recognizable and distinct on any background, light or dark.

• Style: Artistic license is allowed.

• Number of Submissions: Only three (3) submissions per applicant; no group, company or organization submissions allowed.

• Resolution/File Format: Transparent .PNG in 1920xXXXX and/or .SVG (Vector Graphic).

The problem with that logo is that it does not scale well at all. That's the problem we noticed early on when we were working the prior engine. Since the switch back to Unreal Engine, we figured it would be a good time to rebrand the FE logo via community submitted designs and community feedback of those designs.

No need to look further guys <3


There is never a post by you that doesn't disturb me. ;)

never was a fan of the old logo. I did some minor work by making buttons like "attach file", "send message" before for commercial programs

I'll give it a crack.

You guys should probably post this over at IndieDB or other forums/communities as well to gain more traction.

Here's my first try.

I went with the more "Grunge" look to show the grittiness of war with Festung in concrete to signify "Fortress" and Europa in Gold to signify the goal/treasure of Allies overall objective.
I used silhouette's of British soldiers and a Cromwell to put emphasis on the Commonwealth type of game and combined arms. In the back ground I used tactical maps of Operation Goodwood to show the strategic side of the game.

I'm not done yet since this one I think needs to be cleaned up a bit, but this is what track I'm on.

I really like the slightly german style font and that's what I was thinking lately that FE ought to be german font since it is a german word. I also like the picture representing ww2 so that people know what is it about. But not sure about the golden wheat, perhaps some barbed wire or some weapons instead...

I wish I could do some graphic work though and not just comment on others... :P

Thanx for the critique.

The golden ribbons and wheat project the fact that Jackboot Games is only high quality.

Couple of variations of the same idea. The one on the right might be more palatable to the general public, who knows.
