Everything, execpt the grey squid icon, was manually recreated. Flexable with colors, besides most of the graffiti. Still working on placement of graffiti and fixing minor graphical errors. Need to correct size of logo and icon to be exact 1 by 1.

Comments

  • Support. A fantastic first submission to the contest! Heddy (talk) 11:32, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This slaps. I love what you’ve done for the chaos theme, and although it’s a little bit busy in terms of colours when small, it’s also bold and original! I’m wondering if the main yellow circle and squid could be made a bit bigger to stand out more? Either way, loving it, great stuff. GloverMist (talk) 12:35, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. It's beautiful. On smaller sizes it's a bit condensed but overall I love the chaos and the athetetics. Shahar (talk) 12:54, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This is amazing! I love how it matches the theme of Splatoon 3, while staying original and totally awesome. I can imagine it on the main page and I think it would look phenomenal! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 13:09, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This is AMAZING. It really fits with Splatoon 3, and it would look really nice on the main page! SplatonGamer (talk) 13:34, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Hey, I love this!!! One thing, I think the wordmark would look better with Splatoon's other font ninckmane (talk) 14:08, 8 May 2022 (UTC)Vinny
  • I'm a bit worried that this wordmark looks like the actual Splatoon font. I would prefer to see something original and uniquely yours for the wordmark, rather than taken directly from a game. With small tweaks to the wordmark it could still have a Splatoon feel while being uniquely yours, just like the graffiti. I think the icon could be tweaked to look better at small size; it doesn't have to be the same as the full logo, you can do whatever you need to do to tweak the icon version of the art to be optimal for that size. Heddy (talk) 14:52, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love the chaotic energy this gives off and the overall style suits Splatoon 3 amazingly well! ShadowLugia250 (talk) 16:31, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. EminenceTalk 10:25, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. REALLY fits the theme of Splatoon 3! And the fact that you accurately recreated the graffiti by hand is outrageous! Complete god-tier! P.J. GT(talk)SSBU Inkling Boy.png 01:15, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support This honestly looks amazing!!! It really does fit the chaos vibe! ChessMaster [TALK] 16:06, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support Fantastic, I can't believe almost everything is an original asset, looks as if it could be official artwork. I think in icon form, it seems a bit cluttered, perhaps the icons would look better with the centre squid part proportionally enlarged, covering up more of the graffiti.  KA467 🗩 🖿  14:18, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. Very clean and definitely fits the overall Splatoon style, but I have some gripes with it. Firstly, there is no definite colorscheme in this, which would make it hard to determine the look of the rest of the site to match, and the font used in the wordmark is not creative at all, as it's just the one used in S2. Additionally, the squid in the center is from the S1 era due to the more detailed tentacles, which is severely outdated by now. PrincewaveSquindows95 CP TalkPage.jpegSquindows95StartButton.jpeg 19:50, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. Going back to this now after seeing other proposal, I think this logo isn't great. Don't get me wrong, I like your concept, but to me this feels like it's the old Inkipedia logo but in Splatoon 3. The wordmark calligraphy is equally uninteresting. I agree with Princewave regarding the colorscheme and the outdated squid. I personally would love to see this revised to address these issues. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 16:22, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. It's definitely clean and a nice concept, but the colors feel too busy for a logo. It's also fitting for Splatoon 3's aesthetic, which is nice now, but I wonder how that would hold up in the long run. Rassicas {Talk} {Contribs} 21:00, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. It's my favourite out of all the entries so far! It has the chaotic vibe of 3 and a really slick look. I think the squid circle can be larger in the logo but other than that it's great! ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:10, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Really love this design! If this wins it would definitely be an improvement from the old logo Hescracked75 (talk) 5:00, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I'm a sucker for Splat 3 designs, especially the ones with graffiti all around it. It would fit great with Splatoon 3 coming soon. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 01:50, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

1 (Removed, please see Round 2 for new entries). By the way, I didn't draw any of this. I put it together on a graphic designing app called Canva. I'm just an amateur graphic designer that thinks he's got skills. I don't want the prize, do whatever you want with it. There's really no theme here, but I did try to go with the yellow and blue theme of Splatoon 3. Also, I doubled the size for the files by accident instead of halved. Oops lol
2 (Removed, please see Round 2 for new entries). New and improved version of my logo. I still can't draw, so I did't change any elements. I did darken the circle in the back for more contrast and put a background on the text for it to stand out more. By the way, please remember that I'm still an amateur in graphic designing and can't draw that well either.

Comments

  • Neutral. The icon looks decent despite your lack of confidence in your work. I noticed that many parts are green, so there isn't much contrast. Maybe you could tweak the colors? The thing that stands out the most is the eyes, strangely. You said that you didn't draw it, what does that mean? If it's not your own original art, could you use your graphic designer skills to replace any non-original parts with original work? I think originality is one of the most important things that will influence my vote. Overall, it's a clean image but it needs something to make it stand out. Heddy (talk) 14:44, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. Building on this, I think it looks colourful enough to stand up well as Splatoon-related, but I agree with Heddy in that the squid could stand out more from the background and the wordmark could stand out more from the squid. But aside from that, I like it! GloverMist (talk) 15:06, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I do like how it's nice and clean, but as mentioned above, it feels like it doesn't entirely stand out. For me, while I do like the attempt to add some more contrast, it still doesn't entirely pop to me. It has potential to be great, but it doesn't feel attention-grabbing. Maybe, as mentioned prior, make the squid stand out a bit more? Keep on trying, it's got potential! ShadowLugia250 (talk) 16:28, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
Neutral. I like the simplicity of it yet it looks a bit busy with the ink drops when the icon is small. The wordmark also looks cramped in small size which makes it a bit harder to read. Shahar (talk) 17:42, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I think this has potential! Since you can't draw by yourself, I'd advise looking for better ink splats, specially from the second or 3rd game (there are tons of different graphics from nintendo!), and avoid using transparency for them, and also work on a better font for the wordmark ninckmane (talk) 17:45, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I think this is really cool, and it's a great starting point! I feel like the colors of the squid and ink together don't contrast enough, and the semi transparency bothers me a bit. I think with a few minor adjustments, this could look even better! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 12:37, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Hi, maker of the logo entry here, can we use the first logo version for the voting please? like WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png did say, I don't really agree with the semitransparency either and prefer Ver. 1. Thanks! Goldeη1talkInkipedia Logo Contest 2022 - DedSplat1369 - Icon Proposal 7.png 16:28, 31 May 2022 (UTC)
  • @DedSplat1369 For Round 2, there will be a 2 week period where final submissions are allowed. You can just use the logo you have already uploaded, or you can upload a new final version if you need to use the 2 weeks time to make any changes. Round 2 hasn't started yet but will be starting soon. Heddy (talk) 22:40, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I like the overall style of the first one better, however I think the colours are too similar to one another. If the background or Squid stood out more it would be much better. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:13, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I like the color scheme, but it's a bit basic. I get it's not supposed to pop out, but if one were to focus on it, I'd say their eyes would get bored after a while. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 01:54, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Replying to ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page): maker of the logo here. just wanted to say that no offense but i dont think people would really just go on the site and stare at the logo, so yes it really isn't meant to be stared at and admired by all that come across it.

Comments

  • Support. This isn't what I was expecting to see, in the best kind of way. Very clean, very stylish, simple in a way that pops! I appreciate the addition of an octo and like how it could be customisable too, though I definitely prefer the first version with the outlines around the eyes to make them look a bit more alive. My only thought is about the P the wordmark looking a bit like a lowercase R, but this is still very cool! GloverMist (talk) 15:06, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. A very refreshing unique simple and effective idea! The squid and octopus contrast makes for a fun representation of Inklings and Octolings, but as mentioned by GloverMist, the version with the outlines adds more life. It's really cool! ShadowLugia250 (talk) 16:34, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like this one. A modern look would definitely be a good logo to choose. The first one is the more preferable of the two, I think the second one does lack identity (to which you could fix in later version), but overall this one speaks to me. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 17:00, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like it a lot, reminds me of Yin and yang. I think the eyes are a bit low and the octo looks a bit more of a jellyfish than a monster of tentacles. I like the simplicity of it, makes it clean, clear and abstract which is very common lately. The wordmark I presume suppose to resemble language inscriptions seen in the game world. It may need to be adjusted to be easier to read, letters like D and O, P and R, E looks a bit too bold that in smaller sizes it resembles the filled-in D. Overall I think it's very beautiful. Shahar (talk) 17:42, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I really, really like where this is going. I actually like the second more than the first; maybe you will find a compromise or better solution if you feel it has lost personality. One complaint I have is the colors. I feel that these colors only represent Splatoon 3, but this wiki is about the entire Splatoon series and I feel the logo should reflect that or at least not be so obviously themed after one game. Plus I just don't like those colors in general, they sort of have a "nauseated" feel to them, lol 🤢🤮. Again, I really like this and hope I'm not the only one who doesn't like the colors. Heddy (talk) 21:45, 8 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Very simple and elegant. I really like the font on the wordmark. EminenceTalk 10:26, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love the simplicity and the font, and it seems like it really fits in with Inkipedia and Splatoon as a whole! I wouldn't mind seeing it with different color set, but I love how unique it is while really going along with all the in-game logos and such. Great job! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 12:37, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support Looks very cool and the simpleness is great! ChessMaster [TALK] 16:08, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support Really like this concept, very creative, though I have to wonder about being "futureproof-ness" if more playable species ever come down the line. I fear the Octo's purple overpowers the Squid's light green, and the green could be lost on light colour backgrounds, maybe an outline could be added to remedy this.  KA467 🗩 🖿  14:18, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Support. I really like this. Even if it has S3 colors now, it can be changed easily. Personally, the first version is better because of the eyes. The octopus looks a little bit like a jellyfish, but other than that this is great. OrderSquid123 (talk) 21:06, 22 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I agree with the others about the colors, but that could be changed. Its simple, clean, and I love the overall concept of the squid and octopus coming together to make a compass, it feels fitting for a wiki. Rassicas {Talk} {Contribs} 21:03, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I like the minimalistic design and the S3 colour scheme, but I think it's a little too simple. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:15, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I like the minimalisticness of it, but I don't like the design of the Squid and Octo, like what Nick pointed out — Preceding unsigned comment added by ConfusedSquib (talkcontribs) 01:54, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Neutral. I like this idea! I think it's creative and represents the game well. But you are missing half of the assets asked for in the submission guidelines. Regarding the drawing, I think making it simpler is the way to go, considering that the idea is to have it vectorized for use on the site. You have a good idea, but it still needs the wordmark to tie it all together! There are a lot of ways to go for making it, maybe basing it off a script in the game, or using a font that you think represents the logo. ninckmane (talk) 21:05, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • I do agree that it may benefit from less shading and more simplicity, as icons need to be simple to look good at small sizes. As I said when you posted on Discord, I love it. Looking forward to your progress on the wordmark and logo as well! Heddy (talk) 22:03, 9 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Now that I see the first and second jelly icon, I think the second one looks cuter! Though I am unsure about going full pixel art, it could work. Just my opinion. It might help you decide what to do if you go ahead and draft wordmark and logo and collect feedback on those as well. (Also - Don't worry about vector graphics, just do what you think will make the most amazing logo!) Heddy (talk) 09:21, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
    • Scratch that, I think the second one looks better at the smaller size, but the first one looks better at the bigger size. Heddy (talk) 09:32, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
  • I think it's beautiful. The Question mark in the back looks like the Jellyfish is holding a seaweed. I like the pixel art, I'd love to see more variants along with the wordmark and logo. Shahar (talk) 10:29, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
  • I think it looks really cute! I like how it's very different than what we have right now, and it fits in well with the wiki-ness. Once you make the wordmark, I think this would amazing as the logo! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 12:55, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love this idea! It’s fun and original to have a jellyfish on the logo and it’s drawn excellently. My only minor thoughts are, as others said, that it would be hard to make out at small sizes, and that some of the logo’s letters are a bit difficult too, like the first "I" looking lowercase. Maybe it could benefit from a larger border around the word? Either way, this is excellent stuff. GloverMist (talk) 21:16, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This is probably my favorite so far. However, as much as I love the jelly, I don't feel the same way about the wordmark. Currently, the wordmark appears to be "ancient text" styled like the sunken scrolls, and some may say that fits because the jelly is holding a scrollbook. However, I personally believe that a more "scholarly" or "sophisticated" style wordmark may be a better fit for this logo. Something where newcomers would be able to instantly see that it says "Inkipedia" without having to pause to decipher it. Heddy (talk) 22:08, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • I think there isn't enough contrast in the wordmark between the text and the background. Shahar (talk) 22:14, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • I really liked to follow the rapid evolution of your logo, and congratulate you on learning to vectorize specifically for this project! I think the logo looks pretty nice, though I agree with Heddy and Shahar, it should be more readable.. currently I read it as Ink!ped!a, though I like the implementation of inkling script. ninckmane (talk) 23:15, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Definitely a good contender as a good logo for Inkipedia. I agree that that workmark could use some work to be more readable. The icon itself doesn't look good when zoomed out either, as shown here. I recommend changing the icon to be a little more simple. Like maybe the Jellyfish head only. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 00:47, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • What am I talking about lol? I'm not even sure if this is going to be a favicon anyways. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 00:49, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • @PanchamBro You're right, the icon isn't meant to be used as a favicon, though the icons certainly could be adapted into a favicon. The icon is meant to be used at sizes near 50x50 and higher, like on the desktop version of the Vector 2022 skin for example, where it's used right next to the wordmark (you can also see on that page, how different their favicon and normal icon are). I think that any favicon changes should be handled after this contest is over, because 16x16 favicons are often very different from the logo or larger icons. Heddy (talk) 23:16, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This looks great! I like the wordmark, and the overall idea is awesome! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 20:53, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. It's a really cute logo, and I like the scholar Jellyfish idea! The only think I'd change is the font to be a little more like clearer ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:18, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Your logo idea is very nice. The only minus is that the "INKIPEDIA" text color is too similar to its background, so I'd suggest darken the text significantly. — Exaskliri (they/them) (talk | contribs) 15:00, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I really like this one, it looks great. I think the use of a jellyfish is way better than if you had just used a squidkidUser:Hescracked75 5:07, 3 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Support. I think this really drives home the point of this wiki, that we are squids (or octos) just trying to get information about life, and the best way to do this is school (stay in school kids).

Proposal 5

Honestly, I made this because I like the Splatoon series and was bored. I'm just a beginner graphic designer. K Kit (talk) 23:53, 9 May 2022 (UTC)

1 Icon Entry 2.png Icon Entry 2.png Wordmark Idea 2.png Wordmark Idea 2.png Logo Idea 2.png Logo Idea 2.png Splatoon always seemed like a relatively music themed game to me. I guess thats the theme of this. I don't expect to win, but I think this looks pretty good, with the theme colors of every game.(Accidentally s3 is the somewhat main colors, I realized this after I made the color palette for it.)I'm always looking for feedback!
2 Icon Idea 4.png Icon Idea 4.png Wordmark Idea 5.png Wordmark Idea 5.png Icon Idea 5.png Icon Idea 5.png I removed some line art, and made the silhouette of the squid a little more choppy to match the music notes. I sorta changed the wordmark as well, don't know if it'll stay. I also fixed the padding . I may change some of it slightly to look less chaotic and unorganized in smaller sizes.

Comments

  • Weak support. For the wordmark, there appears to be some empty space on the borders; it would be best to crop that out so that the wordmark doesn't have any padding (trust me, there is plenty of padding added whenever wikis use the wordmark, so the wordmark itself should generally not have padding). The squid seems to clash with the rest of the art style; could you tweak that somehow, maybe draw the squid in your own style if you can? I wonder, could this somehow be made more dance-y? I'm imagining a squid dancing and shaking maracas with tentacles, lol, not sure how that would work in a logo so just ignore me I guess. Your logo has potential! Have fun with it, and you could do something amazing! Heddy (talk) 06:10, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I think it's very cool. The speakers with the music nodes make it look like a groovy logo. I think it would be more fitting if our site was solely a media service. Shahar (talk) 10:29, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Neutral. I agree with the others’ comments about the music theme being fitting for the games but maybe less for the site. However, the composition and colours work well, even if the wordmark is a little blurry around the edges? I prefer the white-squid version! GloverMist (talk) 21:16, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Honestly these are really good designs that fit the whole 'vibe' of the Splatoon games, especially the second rendition. I like how messy it seems which fits the art style of Splatoon in some cases (mostly the logos and stickers seen everywhere in the two games). That's all I can really say because i'm not really into art or design, it is just really pleasing and, once again, fits the vibe of the two (soon to be three) Splatoon games! Wynn101 (talk) 01:30, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I really like the concept, but I don't like the emphasis on music. The wiki is about all aspects of Splatoon, not just the music. The Wordmark is nice, however! ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:19, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I agree with Nick. As much as I love the music of Splatoon, it's not only about that. Would work well for a website about the music of Splatoon though. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:04, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 6

I had fun working on it. I wanted to make the logo look like a squid that is hiding in ink on the wall with brush movements of ink in the background. Don't crucify me please only positive and constructive comments. Shahar (talk) 09:51, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

13 May 2022 Update! Added contrast and ink splatters to the logo to make it more vibrant and alive. I also stretched the wordmark so it would be easier to read in small size. A side note that can be made is the incomplete squid that could reflect the wiki that is never complete and is getting continuously improvements. Shahar (talk) 14:56, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Weak Support. I like the logo, my only concern with the wordmark is that the colors look very similar to the already existing wordmark. I would prefer if the border on the wordmark wasn't as rounded and the color was changed, maybe yellow? Other than that, good logo! EminenceTalk 10:45, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I agree with what Eminence said about the colors, as they also make it a bit hard to read when it's small. Other than that, this looks excellent, and it's a great idea! WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 12:55, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Aside from the slightly generic-looking font, I really like the simplicity of this one! It fits the style of the cover of Splatune, for example. Sweet idea. GloverMist (talk) 21:16, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. A good idea, well executed, and the wordmark has a futuristic look. It may benefit from changes to add contrast. Heddy (talk) 22:16, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support The hiding squid is very unique and the font makes it look very futuristic! The second version adds more to the look of it. Very unique! ChessMaster [TALK] 16:06, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. The new colors look even better! This is terriffic! (Btw that font is really cool :)) WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 20:53, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I think the logo looks fine enough, but I really don't get the weird pink swiggles to the right of the word mark in your logo submission. The pink splashes aren't my favorite either. I would recommend making the pink splashes be drawn like the main green splash in the logo. The wordmark is okay too, though personally I would love to see a different calligraphy be used in order to stand out more. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 16:16, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Would also like to point out that the green ink looks blurry on its edges while the other elements are somewhat sharp. Perhaps this can be fixed? -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 04:39, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
  • In regards to the new version, the glow is definitely too distracting as it takes away from the logo. I also feel like it loses it charm too. While I think Jonny II had flaws I still preferred it, so I really hope you can fix the errors with Jonny II instead. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 01:37, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. The mismatch of quality between Wordmark and Icon is too jarring for me. Cool concept, but its also too simple ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:25, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. The concept is nice, but you should change the text. It reminds me of those 90's TV commercials where the text had a glow or shadow to it. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:06, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 7

This is my first time uploading anything here so I'm sorry if I screw up. Anyways, I decided to add graffiti and stickers from all 3 games and the Octo Expansion, the wordmark is in the font "Inkling" that was made by u/frozenpandaman on Reddit (the font can only be used with credit so if that doesn't work for a logo, I can change it to a regular font that isn't Splatoon-specific). — Preceding unsigned comment added by MK Squid (talkcontribs) 10:17, 10 May 2022 (UTC)

As for the icon, I can see why it may look boring, however, I don't want to add more elements to it because an icon has to be clearly recognizable at an extremely small size and that doesn't work if there's too much going on, so it has to be very simple. What I might try to do in the 3rd version is make the squid green and see how that looks, maybe I'll also try tilting the squid to the side.

Comments

  • Support. This looks really cool! The only thing that may need a change to me is the font may seem a little hard to read to people new to the Splatoon and the wiki. This looks really good, and I hope you get far in the contest. K Kit (talk) 15:44, 10 May 2022 (UTC)
  • This is great, and I really like the graffiti! However, as cool as the font is, the crediting might be a problem. You may want to contact the creator if possible, since if it becomes the logo we obviously don't want to have a problem with it. WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 12:55, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. Although I like the graffiti and the bold monochrome in the middle, I agree with the comments about the font - partly for crediting, but also for readability, as any newcomers would have almost no idea what it’s supposed to say, as it reads “Injipeuia”. GloverMist (talk) 21:16, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I like the idea of the icon having less elements than the logo itself which can work well in small sizes. Unfortunately I think the black colors are a bit monotone which contradicts the game aspect being colorful. Shahar (talk) 22:14, 11 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. This did not evoke much emotion in me, so I'm wondering if you could take your concept and push it further somehow? Perhaps the squid or the wordmark could be re-drawn in a graffiti or sticker style, whatever you feel like you could do to make it cooler or more cohesive! Overall, no real complaints other than wanting it to be pushed further into a particular style or theme. Clean logo, great work! Heddy (talk) 02:20, 13 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support This is pretty cool, and I really like the graffiti part, the only problem is that besides that, it is a bit meh. Which isn't necessarily bad, as simplicity is important. Like Heddy said, I think with lil more pizazz it could be even cooler. WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 20:53, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Love this one. The third one is my favorite. This could be a really cool logo for Inkipedia. Maybe add some more color in the “Inkipedia” and the squid and octopus? OrderSquid123 (talk) 01:49, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support The logo is fine but I feel it could be much better if the sticker effect was not so prominent.Fancy Squid (talk)
  • Support. I love how you included a bunch of logos from Splatoon 2, and that you included Octolings and Inklings! It looks amazing but I feel that even more detail would be great. Octogrl66 Canvas (3).png
  • Neutral. I like the third design the most, but overall I don't find something that sets it apart. The assortment of stickers is nice (and the decision to not include them in the icon is good) but other than that it's just black on white. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:29, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like it! The only problem is the graffiti looks too in order. If you move the stickers around (and take notes on the first submission without making it too much like it), then it would look better. Other than that, it looks really clean. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:10, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 8

Originally had it as the Splatoon 3 colors, but I think it just looks better with this palette. I'm using a restrictive color palette to go for the vibe of something you'd see in-game. AQUA (talk) 00:23, 12 May 2022 (UTC)

It looks a bit cleaner without the drop shadow in the background, but at the cost of visibility on white backgrounds, so I'll have to figure out how to make the shadow look more consistent. I'll also probably change up the positioning/scaling of the logo components to make it more cohesive. Just wanted to get this out there for some feedback before I keep working on it

Comments

  • I really, really like this! I just feel that the logo version feels a little scattered with the three elements on top, as well as not having a transparent background. I think it would be better if you centered the globe icon on the logo and used the other elements as additives. Great use of colors and very modern though, congrats! ninckmane (talk) 00:36, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Really like this proposal so far. My only complaint is how the logo is presented. Maybe if the pink background was in a shape instead of being the main background for the logo, I think it would look great! -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 00:47, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I was a bit undecided towards the first version, but I adore the second version. That is exactly what I think would work perfectly for the site! It’s clean, fresh, bold, and original. The pink outline on the icon helps it, while the reflection of the Inkling text under the wordmark is awesome. Great stuff! GloverMist (talk) 06:44, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Very stylish and perfect for a wiki! It's almost like something you would see in-universe if Splatoon had a wiki about itself. I love the "reflection" of Inkling text for the wordmark. Regarding the wordmark image, whenever wikis use a wordmark alone, plenty of padding is added so it's best for the wordmark to not have padding built-in. So it would be best if you removed the empty space around the wordmark. Heddy (talk) 21:41, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support This is spectacular! I really like how there's a lot to see and it doesn't look boring, while not being super complex. I especially like the colors, as right now it is a lot of green, so some pink and turquoise would look new and fresh. WoomyGirl85(talk)S2 Icon Marie 2.png 20:53, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support My favourite entry so far, really does feel like an in-universe logo for a college or a library. I think that when super small, it may be difficult to make out. While I appreciate that both the Inkling and English languages are represented, I feel having both is a bit redundant.  KA467 🗩 🖿  14:18, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose. While it is sleek and cool, I just don't think it suits a logo very well. First of all, the entire logo itself is almost too sharp. The colors just hurt my eyes if I look at them for too long, and I'd hate to imagine how much of an eyesore the entire website will be using this palette. What I mean by the whole sharp aspect was the Inkling's ears and the tips of her graduation hat are just pointy to a borderline intimidating degree, and this one Inkling with the banger hairstyle seems a little too...personal, y'know? Like, I think it should be a less-customizable Splatoon thing than an Inkling, (like jellyfish, squids or octopuses) because not everyone likes that hairstyle, and it doesn't do a good job of representing the entire franchise. Aside from all that, I definitely can see the love and care you put into making this, and I do think the magenta and cyan colorscheme looks very fresh when not as saturated. PrincewaveSquindows95 CP TalkPage.jpegSquindows95StartButton.jpeg 19:50, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I like the artsyle of the icon, wordmark, and logo. It's a simple design which I like a lot and can be easily seen in small sizes yet very complex with its little elements. I have some complains about some things. One is the magenta color which I'm not a big fan, looks like a gum or a spring man from Arms. Second, Why is a specific I highlighted in the middle? Third, Is that your signature in the background? Fourth, Is there a specific date in the code seen at top right? All those questions kinda make me wonder those design choices and not really getting answers or clarity in the logo. Other than those I like the globe and the Inkling with the hat. Shahar (talk) 09:44, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Commenting on revision #4. In the eyes there is a white line that wasn't present in previous revisions, I'm not sure if it's intentional or not but it looks like an error. As another commenter pointed out, it seems strange to have the "I" highlighted in a different color, it's nice to have some color in the wordmark but I would prefer if there was some sort of pattern or logic or reason for this seemingly random highlighted "I" (feel free to reply in this comment section if there is an explanation you would like to share). I'm kind of sad to see the reflection gone from the wordmark, but if you feel that removing it was an improvement then I support your decision; it's hard to balance the need for simplicity with the desire to have an attractive eye-catching logo. The roundness of the logo seems like a nice improvement and I am excited to see any other improvements you might come up with! Heddy (talk) 04:14, 23 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Thanks for the feedback. I want to address a couple things you've brought up, as well as couple things here that were mentioned by other comments that I just haven't had the time to respond to yet. The white line is, in fact, an error and would be fixed for the next revision/final logo. I'm using clipping masks to make my life easier while making the logo so I can just move around elements easily, but it doesn't quite render properly, which causes the white line. To fix it, I need to go back into the SVG file after I render it and merge the clipping masks as objects, but I just forgot to do that for revision 4, so essentially: it's an easy fix. As for the wordmark, I'm not sure if it's better with or without the Inkling text. It's definitely simpler without, but it loses the connection to Splatoon that I was originally going for, so it could go either way. As for the reason for the color in the text, in my mind I shorten Inkipedia down to I.P., which is why I originally colored the 'I' and the Inkling 'P' (as well as the fact that I thought it needed an accent color somewhere in the middle, and that just worked out). Removing the Inkling text still just leaves the accent in the middle on the 'I', which I thought was fine because Inkipedia still starts with an 'I'. However, it makes sense now that other people might not see it that way, so I would be open to suggestions as to how to better incorporate the color in the wordmark. The previous comment had some questions about the other elements in the logo, specifically the graffiti and the barcode (as well as the color palette, which I'll experiment with). I got the idea for both of these while looking through the Splatoon 2 artbook. The point of the graffiti is to incorporate the "ink" aspect of the game without doing the same type of ink splatter that's in the current logo. My intention is to just have some nondescript shape that resembled the artbook graffiti, so I was actually not at all expecting anyone to think that this is my signature (I still don't really see it lol). Adding to that, the barcode sticker is even more closely based on something I found in the artbook, so the symbols at the bottom are supposed to appear very similar to the barcode in the artbook. My goal was to recreate its style without copying it verbatim, and I guess the result could be interpreted as being in date format, but it's not my intent. Some things are just to make it visually appealing. That aside, if anyone has any more suggestions on how to improve any aspect of the design, let me know! AQUA (talk) 02:51, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like the latest revision (the round one) the best! it's minimalistic but not too simple. Have you tried another pallette, too? I think the neon pink might get tiring after a while ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:34, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like how super clean it is. Favorite one so far. It fits with the theme, and the mix of classic with modern suits it well. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:13, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • I'm very sad that this wasn't submitted to Round 2. Did the artist forget about Inkipedia? Heddy (talk) 01:07, 3 July 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Weak oppose. While the artstyle does sort of remind me of those old-school cartoons from the 90s, they could certainly use improvements. I think in general the face could use some work. I don't want to go too long, but I can share with you an example of reference lines being used to create faces and whatnot. Also, while I like the way the workmark is drawn, having a green-and-yellow background beneath is not appealing. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 01:17, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I like the presentation of both Inklings and Octolings. I also like that its hand-drawn and its cartoonish style. I just think it's a bit too simple in shapes and colors. The colors in the background of the wordmark also do not appear so appealing to me. I'd appreciate a bit more depth with the drawings with interesting shapes, shades, and colors. Shahar (talk) 09:11, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Even if this were rendered professionally instead of being hand-drawn, I still think it would be too busy and not really fitting the style of a wiki, sorry. GloverMist (talk) 16:19, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Just so y'all know I'm working on how the icon only version can work. I'll also remove the background leftovers when I upload the icon only version. I'll also change the color of the "Inkipedia" because I just noticed how unreadable it looks at small sizes ChessMaster [TALK] 15:39, 24 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The concept is good, but it is not a high enough standard compared to the current logo. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:36, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. The Wordmark does not work with that color palette or any. I liked the older version. The character's skin tones don't look right. I feel bad for opposing this one, because it reminds me a lot of my art style. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:17, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. The concept, the symbols recreated from the Splatoon 3 hero mode trailer, and pretty much everything is great. But the one problem for me is that it just looks messy and a little unrefined. I'm not sure whether you intended this, or just have a tough time with digital art (to be honest, I've been there myself). I don't have any criticism towards the colors, the layout, but I'm just someone who really can't draw either and that's all I have to say. If you ever want to try and tune it up and make it look a little more refined, then this could totally work! If I said something that you didn't like, or if someone disagrees with me, please comment with your reply. I'm just inputting my feedback, so if I don't know what I'm talking about, and I dont see the greatness of this logo, just let me know.

Comments

  • Looks like the wiki is throwing a thumbnail error due to the size of your icon. You can re-upload it at the specified size (100 x 100 px), and that error will go away. Feel free to use the talk page (or Discord) if you need any help! Heddy (talk) 21:35, 16 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. This looks a bit too simple in my opinion. There could be potential in the logo. Right now it looks a bit dull. Keep working on this and I’m sure it will improve! OrderSquid123 (talk) 01:52, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I have mixed feelings about this. It is definitely a very cute logo! And Splatoon characters reading a book is a good idea for an Inkipedia logo. However, upon close inspection there are some inconsistencies, like how one of the salmonid's arms looks different than the other, and there is a strange color change near the Inkling's neck (is that a shirt, or an error?). While simplicity can be good for a logo, the lack of fingers on the Inkling might be too simple, and the wordmark might be too simple. At the very least, the wordmark needs to clash less where it and the Inkling's hair meet; the stark contrast between the wordmark and hair are quite distracting I think. I'm not an artist so I can't offer very specific advice but I hope you improve the logo until you are satisfied with it. Thanks for making such a cute logo! Heddy (talk) 02:59, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I like the idea. The execution is a bit amateur. I suggest perhaps making it more abstract or with more depth. Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. As the others said, I think this may be too simple as it stands, and I think it's a bit too themed on S3. I'm not sure about the readability of the wordmark, what with it being quite vertical, but I'd be interested in what a professionally-rendered version would look like. GloverMist (talk)
  • Oppose. The concept is good, but it is not a high enough standard compared to the current logo. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:38, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. The idea is cute. This could work well with a different art style. The text looks fitting with the Splatoon font somehow. A little request though: What if you made the text half yellow and half purple? I think it would look better like that. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:21, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 11

As an avid user and member of Inkipedia for a long while now, I wanted my logo to reflect my appreciation for the awesome resource Inkipedia is and the amazing people who have made it the way it is today. I went for a educational look without making it too cheesy (e.g. graduation hat, glasses etc.), and I hope you like it!

Huge shoutouts to all the cool people on the ABXY Discord who provided constructive criticism that was essential in the making of this logo. Thank you! PrincewaveSquindows95 CP TalkPage.jpegSquindows95StartButton.jpeg 19:09, 16 May 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Support. Out of the other submission, this one is now my favorite so far. I like it, though maybe add another color to balance out the sea-green. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 01:06, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. This is absolutely fantastic. I really like the colour scheme that gives it a retro-style vibe that fits the games and bookmark-squid design is clever and works well for a wiki! Really cool, this is one of a few that I'd be happy to use. GloverMist (talk) 15:55, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support I love this idea and it was executed fantstically! But I feel the font doesn't mesh too well with the rest of the logo, as well as the games themselves, and I think a more saturated color would go pretty well. Anyways, I think it looks fantastic!! ninckmane (talk) 20:25, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love the art and the idea of a bookmark. Not a huge fan of the color cyan but overall I like it. Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. It's a great logo, the squid bookmark is an excellent idea and very cute! I'm not sure if the wordmark fits, it is very different from the more playful/fun/squiddy style wordmark I would expect. I don't like the bright color, a darker color or more colors should look better. Why is there a question mark on the book? I don't necessarily have a better idea, but have you considered other possible designs for the book instead of a question mark? This wiki contains more knowns than unknowns; the question mark makes me think it's a book about unrolled abilities or random-weapon Salmon Run rotations or something like that. And there are squares floating where I'd expect ink splats or something, I dunno. The squares are fine, just not what I'd expect for a logo for a wiki about squid video game stuff. Right now the logo is like 30% cute 70% sterile, do you maybe wanna crank that up to 40% cute or even more? The cute squid bookmark really carries the rest of this logo. Well, even if you don't change anything this is an excellent logo that I could definitely see as the wiki's logo, though the wiki's style would probably have to be changed to match this logo. Heddy (talk) 02:49, 22 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I enjoy the color scheme, though I agree with others about the colors may needing something else to balance it out, and I also think the font on the wordmark isn't the most fitting. The font feels kind of retro art-deco-y in a way that doesn't fit Splatoon's feel. Other than that though, I love the logo itself. It feels professionally done, and the squid bookmark idea slaps. I would be satisfied seeing this as Inkipedia's logo. Rassicas {Talk} {Contribs} 21:10, 29 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I really love this style! The only negative I have on this is that it lacks some contrast. Experiment with some darker and less same-y colors and it's perfect! ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:41, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. The logo idea is nice and to the point. The only minus (in my opinion) is the lack of contrast in the color palette, especially between the icon and the wordmark. — Exaskliri (they/them) (talk | contribs) 15:00, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Bookmark squid has got to be the best idea for a squid design I've ever seen in a while. The art is insanely clean. I just don't like the font. Now, I'm no graphic designer, but the font reminds me of some early 1900's font, and as much as I like that time period, it doesn't work here. This is one of my favorites so far thought! ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:24, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Support. I like the idea of a squid writing as a logo, it's a good fit for the wiki. Feel free to add as many variants as you want, as rows in the table. My opinion on colors is that this appears to be based on the Splatoon 3 colors, but I feel that a good Inkipedia logo should represent the series as a whole rather than one game, so I would certainly love to see another color variant if you have an idea in mind! I have a question: what is that shape at the right of the wordmark? It looks vaguely like a squid, but I'm not sure, so maybe it could be refined to be more obvious. Heddy (talk) 02:37, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love how cute the squid is, and I think it is genius to have the squid writing something. I think some other colors would be cool to look at, but I think you shouldn't change the shape and position of the squid at all, because it is so good. I also like the wordmark's font, but the shape next to the word is a little hard to understand. If you could try to make it a little more obvious, I think you have yourself an almost perfect logo! AgentVeemo 02:18, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. While lots of people here highlight the general concept and idea of one of these logos, I tend to perceive the actual execution of said idea to be just as - if not more important, and I don't think that was done well with many of these logos, including this one. Like, do you think this will look reputable and sleek on every single page? Come on, you gotta make a good first impression here. For improvements, I recommend making the outline of the squid have a fixed line-width and cleaning up the rough edges on the purple ink splatter. Try to make the brownish-gold color a brighter and more pleasant shade of yellow perhaps, and if you're feeling creative, try an assortment of different color palettes and see what sticks. PrincewaveSquindows95 CP TalkPage.jpegSquindows95StartButton.jpeg 20:02, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like it a lot, especially the last one with the quill and the colors. The eyes look a bit cross-eyed but other than I love it. Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I definitely prefer the version with the glasses and quill for added academia points, but my favourite colour scheme is the first. As some of the others said, the hand-drawn looks doesn't lend itself well to a website logo but it could look pretty good if given more time! Also would be nice to have a custom font too? GloverMist (talk) 16:19, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • The new wordmark in #5 is harder to read. I liked the first wordmark type more, though the little squid in the wordmark needs tweaking to look less like a baby Metroid and more like a squid. If you've decided to change the font, then it would be best to go with a font that's clean and readable and matching the vibe given by the writing squid art. Heddy (talk) 22:10, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. From all those, I prefer 1, 3 and 4. I love the concept of a squid writing on paper, but I feel it lacks something. Maybe if you made the squid a little larger? ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:43, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Nothing much to add except, why does the squid's eyes have no colored pupils? I get if the squid has black pupils, but if it doesn't, then you should add them. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:27, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

I think the combination of the two would tie the Wiki to the games while still maintaining its own distinct feel.

I changed the facial expression from the typical Inkling scowl to an inquizitive eyebrow raise, and I used a font instead of making the letters by hand using the pen tool. While I personally prefer my original design, I am aware that someone more familiar with the community might have better insight into what is needed. I should also mention that My choice to only use the colors from S3 is so that the colors can be changed for special events. the yellow and blue could easily be replaced with any splatfest colors for example. this is what I feel is the strongest aspect of all my designs.

I put the tentacles back because they make for a stronger silhouette. I also went back to the original wordmark, and opened the "e" a little bit. lastly for both, I swapped to the classic orange and blue. for this version specifically I pushed the raised eyebrow to be more expressive, to hopefully retain the energy lost between versions 3 and 4, without being as intimidating.

Neutral expressions, while less interesting, are more easily applicable to a wider range of places than dynamic expressions. I feel Like I am very close to the final iteration. I would love to hear more feedback on which of these versions is more appealing, and what adjustments, if any, you all would like to see.

So I've come up with a compromise. Since I feel like they add whitespace to the whole logo and give it a nice silhouette, I'm keeping them in when the wordmark is present. however without the wordmark they stick out a bit awkwardly in the icon. so I'm going to take some inspiration from some of the other submissions I like on here and make the wordless Icon slightly different. When the icon is sans wordmark here it lacks the big tentacles, but also gains a splatter since the splatter from the wordmark isn't present, now all three have a splatter, which ties it all together nicely. the splatter also helps the silhouette because otherwise it would be little more than a circle. I hope to get some feedback on this before the round is over, mainly I would want to know if the new splatter needs more on top, or if the gravity effect looks nice, but even if I don't I feel Like I've finally landed on the version I like the most. thank you all, I've had a good time working on this project.

Comments

  • Weak oppose. Okay, just going to address the elephant in the room here: this logo looks intimidating. With the furrowed brow and outstretched tentacles, this would be great for a competitive team's icon, but for a wiki, you might need to tone it down just a notch to be more friendly and welcoming. I'm not a huge fan of the wordmark either, as you can clearly tell it was stretched/warped into position using an image editor or something. Try making it look more streamlined and maybe go for a font that isn't too close to the one for S3, just to be more unique. PrincewaveSquindows95 CP TalkPage.jpegSquindows95StartButton.jpeg 20:02, 20 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I liked the previous wordmark as it was very similar in style to the Splatoon logo. I'm not a big fan of the yellow--white-purple-black colors, kinda looks like the non-binary flag. I like the ink splatter but I think the squid needs a bit more shape. Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. This has real potential! I agree with Prince in that the original version looks a bit too much like a competitive team, almost like a Kraken, but I do like the Splatoon-esque font and the idea behind this. The raised eyebrow version doesn't really do it for me, but it is better than the scowl of the first version. The squid's tentacles encasing the wordmark is a nice touch that I like! GloverMist (talk) 16:19, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I think #3 is the best-looking version of this logo so far. I like the fun and loose look of the wordmark. However, I think the "e" in the wordmark is like a strange "8" because the opening isn't big enough. The revised wordmark in #4 is acceptable but does not seem as appealing to me, just my opinion, maybe others will prefer it. Regarding the squid art, the revised art in #4 seems to have lost all its confidence, but I do think this inquisitive expression could work, with some revision to make it more clear what expression is being expressed. I'm happy to read what you wrote about the colors being easy to adjust for special events. Perhaps this yellow-purple color scheme could be used for a while to celebrate the release of Splatoon 3, but I would like to see a more timeless, general color scheme for general use, as this is a wiki about all 3 games not just the latest one! Hopefully others agree with me on the colors. Don't worry too much about not being familiar with the community - simply focus on what would look good in the corner of every page on the wiki. Heddy (talk) 16:43, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I agree with the others that it is a little too aggresive with the large tentacles. If you give the open eyes to the second version, I think it would be the best of the bunch! ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:45, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. All I'm gonna say is that I don't like the large tentacles. I really love the wordmark though. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:29, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Icon 7's ink splat needs more on top I think, like how the ink splat in the wordmark looks. Perhaps years of seeing the current Inkipedia logo has made me prefer a more even-looking splat. While the tentacle size doesn't really bother me it does seem to bother many people, maybe you could experiment with a more "cute" tentacle design, though it may require changing the rest of the squid to also have any increase in cuteness. While the wordmark design successfully captures the Splatoon style, the squid seems to be your own style. That's not a bad thing, but I feel you could improve the logo's chances of winning if you made the tentacles and/or general shape look a bit more like the squid in Nick the Splatoon Fanboy's Proposal 16 for example; notice how it has tentacles but no one complains about the tentacles because it has that cute style very similar to official art from Nintendo. Whatever you do, have fun and trust your artist's intuition! Heddy (talk) 21:16, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 14

Wanted to make something that kept most of the original logo intact and would be in a similar style to some of the other NIWA logos. I went with the Splatoon logo eyes instead of the squid because I think it works better as an icon, and goes well with the black outline on the wordmark. The shade of green is like a mix of the two main colors in the current logo. Skua (talk) 08:36, 21 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Support. I like it a lot. Simple. Elegant. Nice wordmark that looks just like the Splatoon logos. Very well done! Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I really, really like the wordmark here, it's so close to the Splatoon logo that it's almost scary, but the logo part itself is far too over-simplified for me. There's nothing wrong with being simple, but I think this requires a bit more to really stand out. GloverMist (talk) 16:19, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support Agree with GloverMist. Maybe have some gloss or some 3D effect or heck some other color splats to make time stand out. -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 00:33, 22 May 2022 (UTC)

  • Weak Support. I also agree with Glovermist. The logo part feels too simple, but I think this is my favorite wordmark of all the entries to be honest.

  • Weak Support. As the others said, the wordmark looks official! However, I think it would be better if the background wasn't a perfect circle. One splash is a little too simple, too. Maybe if you have some larger ones overlayed in the middle? ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:48, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I really like the second version. It has more color in it,and not just green. OrderSquid123 (talk) 00:57, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Unlike everyone else saying it looks "too official", I like the officialness looking of it. As long as it's not stolen for anyone, it's perfectly fine. I like the design, but instead of a perfect circle, maybe use a different shape? Using an ink splotch would overdo the ink concept, so don't use that. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:32, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. V3 is great! I love how you focused on the typical style of NIWA wiki logos while balancing feedback to make a very appealing logo. My only complaint is that I think the "e" in the wordmark needs to be opened up a bit to help with readability at the 36px height; it can look too similar to a strange "8" if not changed. Heddy (talk) 21:23, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. Okay, I think the third version is my favorite one so far. I agree with Heddy that the font has to be changed to be readible, but outside of that...looks good! -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 23:12, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like how the different splatters of ink on the squid show that all different preferences in the Splatoon series. Some people prefer chargers while others like brushes. AlphaMale300

Proposal 15

Couldn't pick between this and the previous one. It's not as original but it's closer to keeping the original logo intact and also closer to the style of some of the other NIWA logos. Just noticed it's similar to the Spotify logo too lol Skua (talk) 08:36, 21 May 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Oppose. This looks too similar to the original Inkipedia logo. The squid looks identical, and there isn’t anything too unique. OrderSquid123 (talk) 11:18, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I like the simplicity of it but it looks quite similar to the current logo. There is also not enough contrast in my opinion between the text and the icon. Shahar (talk) 13:42, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. See above for my thoughts on the wordmark, but I agree with the others: it doesn't stand out from the current one enough in my eyes to make it worth the change. Still, nice wordmark! GloverMist (talk) 16:19, 21 May 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. Overly simplified version of the current one. Not inherently bad, but I don't like this modern trend that brands seem to follow ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 15:50, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Oppose. I'm just gonna say what everyone's said: this looks too much like the original. It looks pretty clean, and I like it. You can "channel that energy" on a different design though. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:35, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 16

Not quite last minute, but I thought of this late. I know shadows and lighting might not look perfect right now; I will get to editing those if it's too jarring that they are hand-drown and not with lines. Let me know of anything you would change! ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 12:10, 3 June 2022 (UTC)

How to read the table: Pick any combination you like. I have merged cells for better visibility, but because something is on version 1 does not exclude it from being used on version 3, for example.

Comments

  • Weak oppose. Not a big fan of the glasses nether the split of the word to two lines. I like the rendition of the squid. Shahar (talk) 17:07, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like the how you used the different colour combinations from Splatoon, and the rendered squid's tonal details. I like the first design more when the word is split, but think it should not be wavy. Leel0oo! :-) (talk) 16:35, 3 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I love the art of the squid! I really have nothing else to say. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:41, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • The versions without glasses, and with "Inkipedia" on one line look the best to me! Heddy (talk) 21:27, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Support. I'm a fan of V3, but the cropped versions do look a bit odd in it. I didn't like V1, because I just thought it looked more like "Inki Pedia", so I'd say just fix the smaller icons on V2 and 3, and that'd be all you need.

Proposal 17

My logo idea! I made it a salmonid instead of an Inkling/Octoling to make it not lean towards one species or the other.

Comments

  • Oppose. Honestly, I think more people would recognize Inkipedia with squids and not salmonids. Plus, there isn’t anything too appealing with that dark green. OrderSquid123 (talk) 01:01, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. Cute, but I wouldn't use little buddy as the character on the cover. He isn't that big in the world of Splatoon. ¿ConfusedSquib?S2 Icon Marina 2.png(Page) 02:43, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak Oppose. It's a really cute drawing, but I will agree that Salmonids are not the defining aspect of Splatoon. Other than that, I would change the hair to be red so there's more contrast, and the white brush to something else so it doesn't blend with the backrgound ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 09:42, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral The Salmonid is really well drawn and I like how shiny it looks! My main complaint is the focus on a Salmonid and not an Inkling or Octoling. ChessMaster [TALK] 19:45, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Neutral. I don't know what to feel about this. I think the concept looks neat, but I feel like the tentacle and quill don't match well. Maybe a squid holding a quill will work? -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 16:30, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. A really clever idea! Two things, however, the letters in Inkipedia (mostly p and e) look a little odd with the variable line thickness. Maybe if you lowered the holes in those two it would be better. Also I think it would look better if there was ink on the tip, because and sorry if it sounds weird it looks more like edible candy than a tentacle. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 18:23, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Weak support. I like the wordmark. The icon is a bit odd. Shahar (talk) 23:22, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Proposal 19

Hiiiii I waited til the last minute lol. I thought it would be cute to have both a squid and an octopus with colors from all three games so that's what I did. Also the thin darker stripes on the background circle are a lil reference to the original logo :) --Bzeep talk 20:30, 4 June 2022 (UTC)

Comments

  • Support. I really love the design of this! Lil squid and octo leaving a trail that lead to Inkipedia; really creative! However, I feel the icon is a bit lacking. I would suggest making the squid and octo move towards the center, but not clash. Think of the Yin and Yang symbol, but rotated 90 degrees (they would also have to be larger). Also maybe size up Inkipedia on the logo by a little bit. ~ Nick the Splatoon Fanboy S2 Mem Cake Inkling Squid.png Chat Contributions 22:49, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Neutral. I don't really like how the icon looks tbh. With the wordmark it looks fantastic, but just alone it's hard to see when it's relatively small. Maybe a different icon could suffice? -- PanchamBro (talkcontributions) 23:12, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I like the swirls. I think the colors could be a bit more vibrant and stronger. Shahar (talk) 23:22, 4 June 2022 (UTC)
  • Support. I really like the idea of this logo, but I think that the octopus and squid are a bit hard to see when the icon is small. Maybe making the octopus and squid slightly bigger would help? Anyway, I think the colours are really good. Octo$niper (talk) 10:53, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

  • Support. This is very cute! It has both squid and octo, which I appreciate. There's a lot of empty space around each image, so I'm assuming this is work-in-progress. I love the art, but I don't like the wordmark in its current state, I just don't think a simple font would look acceptable as a wiki logo. So I hope you have some other ideas for the wordmark.
