Hey everyone,

There's this new logo that Deadhaus is using on its social media. I want to get a few votes on what you guys think of this change, overall.

This is what it used to be:

This is what it is now:

This is what the new logo looks when smaller:

I personally think this new logo is not badass enough. I like the crown's format better, the cheekbones are more distinct, and the separation from the crown and the head is cool. But, at the same time, the skull reminds me of a toy, the lack of teeth or stylized texture to it makes it seems like some other creature's skull rather a human skull (its teeth looks like horse's teeth, actually), and it looks awful when smaller, or seen from afar.

If you guys at Apocalypse want to bring about a new logo, maybe you could consider icons other than skulls as well. But if you want a skull, I believe you can make one that is more brutal, dark and terrifying than this one, especially with the new direction you've implied going for.

Actually, even better. Why don't you make a few logo variants and show them to us se we can help you guys decide which direction looks more awesome for Deadhaus?

What do you guys think? Any suggestions for them?

The new logo is more "iconic," not as in Mickey Mouse, but meaning that it works better when it's scaled down.

Here's the old logo scaled down to the same smaller size:

And here are both at icon size (32px height):

At this size, the "old" logo is hard to read. You can't make out the details too well, and it's wasting some real estate that could be used to explain itself better. While the new logo works perfectly fine at this size. If you didn't already know the logo, which one would you be more likely to recognize?

That said, obviously in larger pictures, more detail can be used. I would say as an icon, the new version could be a better choice.

I miss the slight discoleration at the top of the skull, and if that were brought back, I'd be perfectly fine with the new logo, I do like that it makes it clearer where the crown begins.

Um... the new logo looks way too cartoony to me and while that is not a bad thing on it's own I don't think it fits the art direction that has been talked about during the streams.

I much prefer the original. The new one looks too streamlined, too cartoony, too simple. It doesn't really reflect the dark, and gothic look and feel that the game represents. There's no regality to it. It doesn't look like something I would attribute to a noble house.

If how it's seen when it's scaled down is the issue, then maybe just increase the size a couple ticks?

I prefer the weathered look of the old logo. Maybe you could add a split to define the crown better like the new logo but the new one just does not look gritty enough from what you have been saying in the streams.
