EDIT:

Hey, guys. Here are a couple of videos I made which feature a new logo, which is simple like some of you suggested a logo should be. What do you think of it? Also, what do you think of the second video? I know that the audio could be better, so I plan on getting a new microphone.

The second video has only recently finished processing, so allow a few minutes to transpire before it becomes visible and before its maximum resolution becomes available.

@Master_Live

I don't get you, Master_Live. You've said in the past that users like me give OT substance (or something like that), yet I can't determine whether you're making fun with me or poking fun at me; I don't know what your game is. Also, are you Latino? If so, what's your ethnicity (Puerto Rican, Dominican, Mexican, etc.)?

Users like you can bring OT back from brink. Your videos are fun, I make fun with you and sometimes laugh at you too. You are a little weird, but in a good way.

You didn't answer my question about your ethnicity.

I like it, it's simple and to the point. I did struggle to read the font above the letter "B" though, can barely see it.

three things:

1) Choose a better font that doesn't have little cutouts in it. It could use some kerning as well.

2) Whole Wheat Ritz!? Really? Do you enjoy eating cardboard?

3) I hope you become famous.

@4myAmuzumament: I put the cutouts in myself. I didn't want the letters to be plain.

I think it looks fine. Only thing I would suggest is making the font larger above the letter "B." I can't read it without getting really close to the screen.

@Lance2500: If I make the letters above the "B" larger, the logo would be too large.

  • Choose a better readable font
  • Lose the crap above the B, it's way too tiny and cluttered to see.
  • I don't like the line underneath.
  • The color blue is #0000FF or so it seems, that's a very cheap looking color, choose a more sophisticated one.

A good logo is simple, readable and has few graphical elements.

For what purpose? I think it would look better and - most importantly - more professional.

I'm currently working on a new video. It's a composition of video clips and a narration by me. This is the first time I've tried to do something like this; it's very tedious. Damn.

Hey, guys. I uploaded an image of the new logo in the OP. I took some of you guys' advice and made it simple. What do you think?

@playmynutz

Thanks, man. I appreciate your support.

@BluRayHiDef: New logo is better. I think you should try keeping the spaces between letters consistent. B, l, and u could be spaced like the t and v in TV. The underline is a good aesthetic touch, but I feel that since the underline doesn't incorporate the entirety of the V, it looks unbalanced...so maybe you could look at that.

If it were me, I'd put a simple box around TV then have the underline from blu align with the bottom of the box. Then I'd toy around with putting antenna on the box.

change it, have a TV screen with the TV letters inside it, within the V have water and the Blu floating in the water.

Now I have. Some thoughts:

  • The logo looks much better I still have a problem distinguishing the L in Blu.
  • In the first video you said you "in this channel I will be talking about things pertaining to video games and movies". I think you shouldn't restrict yourself in that way since you will probably be covering other themes outside that realm. Perhaps you should say that you will be talking about stuff in popular culture.

Keep up the good work.

I like it! It's minimal and sleek, works well as a lower third there in the corner. I'd keep it.

Thanks, man. Now, I just need to come up with some sort of animation for it. On another note, I ordered the Blue Yeti USB Microphone from Amazon yesterday and should be getting it tomorrow. Can't wait.

Oh nice! Hell yeah, that'll be legit. Keep updating it, and definitely post your videos, I'm excited to see what you come up with.

From what I heard it is ok but didn't listen too much because I don't want to spoil the game for myself.
