CEO Sandy Duncan has offered a first look at the brand new company logo for YoYo Games, the creators of the popular GameMaker Studio game development engine.

 

The new logo features a modern, minimalistic, and professional design. A subtle abstraction integrates the characters “YY” to form the shape of a yoyo. The logo is entirely gray-scale, with the exception of the company’s signature green note. Check out the new YoYo Games logo below.

Hmm, looks sterile and boring. I think a company that is all about game creation should have something a bit more fun looking.

It seems like they're trying to make themselves look more professional and I suppose that might appeal to some. Not me though.

Very nice. It looks professional, and its subtle but well conceived. Couldn't agree with the above post less.

I agree. I'm personally a huge fan of the minimalist look, and YoYo have pulled it off beautifully. This is the most professional that YoYo's brand has looked thus far.

It turns out "Comics" is a term for Drugs. In the corner, you can see Lan Shade injecting Pure Comics into his arms. "When's the next comic?" he asks. Poor soul. His life has been ruined at the hands of StewartB.

I think it's a great step forward, however with a critical eye, I think it sits a little bland against the grey and could use with some 'popping' like the following:

Just my thoughts :) Either way, love the new design!

I have to say, I didn't care about this logo (note I didn't say care for) when I read this when it was posted, er, a few hours ago--but now with the logo at the top left of the forum I have to say it looks quite nice.

Looks great on the YYG and GMC websites. It's a very contemporary design.

I like how the pair of inverted letters form an interior circle. It's slightly reminiscent of the old cog design. That's a clever way to show a connection to past logos.

The only (meaningless) complaint/annoyance I have with it is that those look like lower-case y's... but they should be horizontally flipped. I feel deep down that the 'nut' should be mirrored to fix it, but then the shape wouldn't fit in with the text. Ah, well.

The most professional logo YoyoGames have had yet, it is suppose to be simplistic and professional looking which it does perfectly.

 

Good job  :thumbsup:

When I first noticed it at the top of the forums, I was sceptical. It just didn't seem that YoYo-ish to me. Then I noticed they were two Ys, which together formed an which in the end can be read as YoYo. Brilliant :)

I saw it today all by a sudden, I liked it. The font is also good. It's simple, recognizable and works in black-and-white. And it kind of has two Ys and two Os (the inner and outer edge).

 

Yep. I approve :D

 

Now let's see what they do to the GameMaker logo :D

I like it the way they did it on the YYG sandbox main page (taking up two lines instead of one).  I also approve of the person who suggested the black shadow outline.  However, I can also understand the light opposition that the logo has received, but I think it's perfectly fine.

 

Now let's see what they do to the GameMaker logo :D

But...but...the tattoo...

The last time YYG wanted to use a "fun-looking" logo, this happened:

Anyway, I think it looks great. Definitely an improvement over the old logo.

I have to admit I actually liked the Smiley Gear. But this one sure looks more professional, I can figure trying to sell someone an 'advanced development package' with the Gear logo being quite difficult.

I like it, it looks a lot more sleek!

It reminds me of when logos were a lot simpler, before all of the Web 2.0 faux-glass look took over for almost half a decade and everyone and their neighbor's cousin had to have that look for their site. Simplicity is better, I think. Less really is more when it comes to logos, somehow!
