Just that the gap between the right most wave & the "h" is slightly larger than it was before.

Well, if you take the spacing between the waves in account, the spacing between waves and h in the present logo does not seem to have any correlation anyway. Personally I think it will become a little too attached if it's any closer to the logo.


Well, I still like the idea of a headphone smile.gif Regardless if the present logo has a secret meaning, a headphone is at least closer to the subject of this community.
I'n not really into the headphones - maybe because I never use them. I also just noticed the background swoosh, which is not to my taste either. But these are both minor to me - the typography matters more.

The waves seem to match the font better now. The subtitle is stolen directly from Iain - Thanks smile.gif Probably gonna try out gimp tomorrow. I couldn't find anything useful from a google search on photoshop and hinting.

That's better. The sub-title (tag line?) still looks like it's floating away though (but that's not so important because, as I said, I'd like to see it changed).

http://www.gimpshop.com/ is a version of GIMP that has been changed to resemble the layout of photoshop. It might easier to use that version than try to figure out the crazy GIMP menu structure.

I don't mind helping out by doing the small text in GIMP if that is easier.

I added the "swoosh" or "glass"-effect simply to give it more life, but I also don't like it when it's too appearent. I guess I accomplished that since you didn't notice it before wink.gif

Thanks - I'll try it later.

Great logo, if only lightness on hydrogen and boldness of audio could be little compensated I'll vote for it as a winner smile.gif

I prefer the original logo, just with a different font (Arial is ubiquitous and boring). Like Trebuchet MS, for example:

hydrogenaudio

Made with the following code:

CODE
[size="7"][font="Trebuchet MS"][color="#6699CC"]hydrogen[/color][b][color="#334e66"]audio[/color][/b][/font][/size]

The increased character spacing also better fits the pictogram IMHO.

P.S.: Actually, Iain's small text rendering improvement and odyssey's "swoosh" or "glass"-effect are nice. smile.gif

I felt the same way.... 7-8 years ago. So guess how I feel about Trebuchet (or even any other OS-bundled font) today...

Wow, I'd forgotten about this thread. Those are some nice logos, odyssey, I love the one with the headphones and the little grandient looks good smile.gif

here's something I whipped up in a few minutes:

This one uses the Microsoft branding typeface Segoe.


and this one uses Akkurat, same as the logo in my first post.

Just some ideas, odyssey is way better at this smile.gif
