Sounds like a statement of fact. If it has already been decided, what difference does it make what we think?

I like it. Nice job!

Also seems to imply that a Beta version will be available, which I also like!

kj, that doesn't imply there is a beta ;) hehe. I know it seems like it does, but a few of the versions were classified beta, but no one got to see them before anyone else. and the next version just came out and that was the end of the "beta". There is no beta test team either. :(. Though I wish there were one actually. But like I've said before, I"m not in charge of any of that stuff.

couple of things, the As look like Q.

At first i was like wtf is Q+ tho anderson was doing another name change.

Another thing is the light blue color on the bottom of the case badge just doesnt match the whole feeling of the pic. would be better if it dark blue or something.

Guys,

At first sight this logo looks very professional but I have a few (minor) things:

1. I agree with Alternate Virus that the "A" could be mistaken for a "Q".

2. I also agree with AlternateVirus that the light blue color under the A+ is out of range.

3. what does the "+"-sign mean. I suppose it has something to do with "Avant" or so, but this is not clear in my opinion.

4. The "B" in the "browser" word looks a little bit odd. I cannot say why exactly, but maybe because it is a lowercase "b" hugging against a uppercase "R".

That is it for now.

Regards,

T-PO

my opinion...

1.the "A" could be mistaken for a "Q".
Yes, I agree with that, it doesn't even seem to be an "A".
2. the light blue color under the A+ is out of range.
What I think is that there are too many different types of blue...I mean, you can see at least 5, and they are COLLIDING. I dont' like that and would prefer something more...SHADING
3. what does the "+"-sign mean. I suppose it has something to do with "Avant" or so, but this is not clear in my opinion.
not in mine either! "A+" sounds like a blood group!
4. The "B" in the "browser" word looks a little bit odd. I cannot say why exactly, but maybe because it is a lowercase "b" hugging against a uppercase "R".
The look of "aVanT bRowSeR" may look original...yet I'd like to see more proposals.
If I die I have to go before Crom and he will ask me:
"What is the rule of Steel?"
And if I don't know it, he will cast me out of Valhalla and laugh at me!
That's Crom, strong on his mountain..

If you want a team, plz let me know. I would be satisfied to test all the stuff for avant browser :-)

if we going for a professinal look, lose the l33t cap thing.

aVaNT bROWeR doesnt look that professinal, it reminds me of a kid designing it.

The A+ case badge should fade out and it doesnt look that great with the light blue color.

the + should be removed if it has no relative to avant. Unless Anderson is planning on selling Avant Plus browser which i hope he doesnt.

Sure, could be a few problems as listed above, but overall it looks good. Nice work.

Oh, and I don't think "Qvant" is a word, so people with common sense should figure out that it's an A. ****, it looks like an A to me.

let me clear up the beta thing: THERE IS NONE :) So it's pretty useless to be begging to be included on something that doesn't exist ;) Trust me. Like i've said a few times: not even I see the product before anyone else.

Also: thanks for all the suggestiosn about the logo. I'll let anderson now about them.

Agree with folks on:

Style of the A+ needs to be changed
Avant Browser shouldn't be indecisive on caps vs. lower case - make it one or the other.

I find the colors all visiable and appealing.

The logo was cool enough, but there is some points we're missing:

The logo holds the identification of what this proram is - for my sake, if there would be a new icon for avant, (I guess that it would be a change if they first change the logo) I would get confused. And we dont wanna get confused, do we? ;) It take some time to get used to changes like that.

Second: what about a rebrush of the old one? Make it more stylish, I dunno, but I guess there is many people out there with great ideas.

Third: Make the icon XP styled - by that I mean so you can use more colors, pixels etc. :)

Yeah, that was my thoughs!

so long

You know what would look nice? White stylish reflective "A". Something a Mac icon designer would do.

Anderson has taken a look at all of your concerns and assures me that it will be changed appropriately before it's published.
