Is anyone interested in drawing a new text logo showing the text “Minetest Game”? It will be used as the header image in the main menu.
We still need a new text logo for Minetest Game (formerly known as “minetest_game”, it has been renamed recently).

PilzAdam suggested that the new logo should be based on this image:

PS: I suck at this, my proposed logos were rejected.

Why minetests name is minetest? It sounds like minecraft or infiminertest version. I think we could look after a new name for the minetest 1.0 when its released.
i think we have to look after a new name, nit after a logo

I like the lego - logo really much , but why minetest needs a legologo? Minetest works with blocks, not with lego

Sorry about spelling. Im writing with my small mobile phone.

Unfortunately, that would never be accepted as it's not voxel like.

Heybye44's most recent header looks interesting. I don't like the contrast of the colors, however, because it is not easy on the eyes. I also don't think the Minetest Game logo fits well into this.
Hint: The icon is also available as SVG, so you could use it. But maybe it's best to don't put the icon at all into the header. What do other people think?

Re: Minetest Logo

Hello there. To answer the original question, I love the current logo and the one suggested. I do think that the Minetest logo has become a symbol of the game however. Changing it so late in development could throw away the image that it had established. So I guess I really think the logo needs to Not change. (No offence in the least, though. I love the suggested logo, it's metro, modern, intuitive, and elegant!) I just don't think that such a drastic change in the game's main identification is called for at this point :) ).

Oh, and to fit with the theme, I spent some time creating a spin-off of the original. My goal was to make it more Lubuntu 14 -- more Windows 10 -- or more Chrome OS 30-whatever -- essentially, more "metro". The spin-off has no stroke lines and new shading on the sides.

Plz say what you think. Thanks. Link: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... sp=sharing

Link includes:
- Low res image (PNG)
- High res image (PNG)
- SVG image (SVG, inkscape) (google drive renders the vector badly(pixelated), so download and view it if you like)
- Sorry about having to use drive. My connection to the forums is much too slow to upload images.
Do what you love, and you will love what you do! :)

For your interest, here is the current official Minetest Game “logo” (header actually):

Note: Of course the logo will be upscaled in the main menu and it will have some sort of “retro” look.

If I get time (I'm currently rebuilding the INNOVATION-Plex site using Drupal 8.1) I might try to Blend together a logo (see what I did there?)

Anyone know of any good open source font packs? (like just a folder with nicely named fonts)

I like the standard logo but I do think that it doesn't show off much of minetest's capability.
Perhaps some other decorations than just tree and cactus. I do agree that 'Minetest' sounds too undeveloped and clone-like for a version 1.0 release.

If you want a logo which is buildable, why not just make it a node or mesh?

I don't like the idea of the Minetest title being blocky or pixellated; it's not aesthetically pleasing. I think the Minetest title should be just as clean and as high-resolution as the icon. It should have rounded letters, with a solid white fill and a light grey outline to match the style of the icon.

I like the rounded letters bit but it should have variable resolution to fit with different themes.
