I like this one.
Also, "LateralGM" could be written in "bold", or using a slightly bigger font.

How about this?

I got to say though, all the designs here look great. If anything, I would like the simplified logo one. It looks like a depacked version of the old logo or something.

Another streak of color would be nice though aside from the blues, maybe a contrasting one that could separate LateralGM's ident with Enigma's ident (and I think enigma would need a similar font feel as well).

I should note though that Product Sans couldn't be used on Open Source terms. See this. Although maybe the font could be used as a typeface, i say use another one to avoid any trouble for it. Montserrat for example:


I've checked out a palette scheme here.

EDIT: Speaking of the unpacked LGM logo:



Swapping the L above and it makes it look like the LGM block logo.

Sorry I didn't get back to this right away. I wanted to say that I like your reasoning for its use, it does look like a depacked cube and not entirely unrelated or as revolutionary as a result of this. I also agree with moving the L to the top to make it look like it would if it were a texture for a 3D cube as this also aligns it with the text "LateralGM" along the baseline.

I like the font you've proposed as well, though I find serif fonts slightly easier to read at a distance. I did not like his originally proposed font in the very first version because the M looked bloated on the sides and it made it seem aliased. I actually do like it with the orange, but LGM is traditionally red, so that is not likely to change.

* I would upload the red version of what you have for contrast, but imgur seems to be down right now *

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

Yeah, I forgot about the Red part, it does contrast over the blue theme, maybe the orange accent for the Lateral could be red as well.

Although the color scheme that I placed seems to use orange, we could use red without a problem. They are natural contrasting colors anyway.

Oh yeah, I adjusted the Paletton colors, it seems that according to it, the primary contrast to red is green:

Erm, I am opposed to green. Green is a no-go because YoYo, if you know what I mean? The reason we emphasize blue so much is because of color psychology, it's the most popular color according to several studies. It conveys tranquility and makes the user feel relaxed. Though I was not the one who originally picked ENIGMA's color schemes, I emphasize it from time to time.

I did however notice that the red is more difficult to read than the orange. Really wish imgur would stop being a pain. But I am still open to your changes because I do find them an improvement.

Hehe, yeah, i got what you mean. Why did they went to this first? :eng99:

Anyway, that's why I used orange, if you check the paletton that I've created, Orange is a bit compatible with the blue.

We could lighten up the background for the Blue, we could swap the dark one with the light ones. Or we could surround the red square with white lines. This made the LateralGM logo to pop out of the blue in the first place anyway. I also noticed here:



Just on my desktop, this red isn't actually hurting on the eyes. The catch is this red is a bit muted, that's why it registers nicely on the colors.

Here's my take using that color:



As you can see it looks kind of nice.

Alternates:



I accidentally flipped the back one with the front:



Just realized how messed up my shadows were. My bad.

I like the first one the best, but the red is hard on my eyes, I do think the orange is easier to read. I would be interested to see it with a white outline but I can't, I don't think I can pull it off myself.

Here's something I whipped up. I'm going to remake it again, this time on a vector graphics program.


Here's my render using a vector graphics program (specifically Inkscape)
Needs shadows though, that could be fixed in PS.

Hey, I've been looking back at the splash screen I just made and with your comment about the orange, and so I did check it out if it works:



I've made some even more tweaks.

In my personal opinion I liked the original orange one better, I feel these are starting to get over the top. But I like the added depth?!? of the walls, feels more isometric which is a good thing.
