Please Welcome in the New Droid Life Logos…

I just have to start this off by thanking everyone for all of the ridiculously amazing submissions.  We had over 125 logos entered into this contest and the decision to choose a winner was more difficult than I had ever imagined.  It was obvious from the beginning that you all understood the look we were going for without even giving you many instructions, so I want to applaud all of your efforts.  We easily have the most talented group of Android enthusiasts on the planet.  Amazing work everyone.

And with that said, we were unable to pick just 1 winner.  As you can see above, we have two logos on display and have chosen them as co-winners!  One is a fun, 3D, in-your-face Android beast, while the other fits perfectly into our obsession with all things minimalist.  They might be on complete opposite ends of the logo spectrum, but they are both in a weird way, exactly what we were looking for.

Everyone give a solid fist bump to Christopher (left logo) and Wayne (right logo)!

The original prizes were an Android mini-collectible and an ezeStand, but to let them know how much we love and appreciate their work, we’ve decided to toss in some cash as well.  Great stuff you guys!

So going forward, you’ll see a lot of testing of both logos as we decide how best to implement them.

What do you guys think?

    Why is the one on the right backwards, looks like the L is first. Don’t like it.

  • Goodnote Steve

    The design of the logo is fine. Personally, I’d get rid of the pink, tho. To me, black & pink only go today if you’re going for a retro ’50s rockabilly look, and that look has nothing to do with 21st century mobile technology. What’s up with the pink???????? Trying to bring out the feminine side of Droid?

    I think it’s time to drop the emo black and pink combo. I like the logo on the right better, but don’t hate either one. The right-hand logo is simplistic, which is my personal preference.
    Overall i would say to drop the pink and it’s good.

    Pink? Yuch :D

    I want the Droid Bionic (now)….wait what was the question?

    I need a logo. Anyone wanna help me?

  • Tareq

    The chosing logos have nothing of the principles of a good logo.
    1- logo should be simple and effective even in small size
    2- logo should be effective in one color
    3- logo should be easy to remember or describe
    4- logo should be timeless and not be changed every 5 years. here is an article about this: http://justcreativedesign.com/2009/07/27/what-makes-a-good-logo/

    • Anon

      Other than the one color [which the article doesn’t say], the logo on the right would fit perfectly with the link you shared. Just saying.

      • Tareq

        the one on right works better. you need to get rid of the effects they used on it. Here is more articles from professionals: http://www.davidairey.com/what-makes-a-good-logo/
        http://www.thedesigncubicle.com/

        to prove my point see Kellex avatar. ask someone who didn’t see the logo in big size What is this? they will be like: I have no idea! something and there is pink and black but can’t read what it said!

      • Tareq

        the rule I provide above are from an article I wrote and they are my understanding of a great logo. the article is not in English that’s why I shared other designers articles.

  • Marknkim

    When can I buy a hoodie with the new logos?

    With all the pink, may as well be using that r2d2 phone.

    Really like both those logos. Great work!

  • http://twitter.com/shermandy Sherm

    I thought we were going to vote on them? Those are uglier than sin.

  • Anonymous

    Really not feeling the left one, it just feels grossly cartoonish. Something out of the 90’s. The one on the right is godly and beautiful, however. Please throw out the left and just use the right. Or maybe give us a vote?

  • Jawshua

    I can understand why you chose two because they both are really good! Congratulations on your win guys! I look forward to seeing them around the site.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

    These are awesome! Lovin’ the one on the right! ;D

    COngrats guys you did a nice job!!! Kellex should give each of you an DL Hoodie :)

    I think it’s going to be very interesting with the release of the Tegra 3 processors coming out at the end of the year as well. Alot of us are drooling already and can’t wait till the end of the year. Quite the time for Android and us consumers :)

    I hate the pink and black… pick another color i am set! :]

  • Mad3963

    Incorporating them into some sweet new wallpapers for my DX would be cool! Let’s see what you wallpaper designers out there can do.

    • Anonymous

      Let’s hit it. I already am working on one w/ the minimalist. Thinking of one bold logo in the middle and faded ones in the background. Black background. Maybe pink if you ask nicely.

    I like it!

  • Ryan C

    When I saw these I knew they would be very good contenders and had a very good chance of being the winners

    Great job Wayne and Christopher. I wish I had that kind of talent! Loving the new logo’s!

    right one > left one

  • Ilhe1s

    Awesome! Love them both, but the one on the right just a widdle more. ;)

    Great work! Love em!

  • bshawcross

    the right one is more professional

  • JStamp627

    Take out the pink and replace it with green and then it would be a kick @$$ logo. Other than the pink, I like’em.

    • Keithsmnr

      I agree, green would look better.

      • http://winklerjr.carbonmade.com/ Wayne W.

        Everyone does green, Pink makes them stand out. Honestly with all the green themes the other sites kind of blend together when I visualize them. Not Droid-Life, why? Because of their colors.

        • http://www.facebook.com/ThornfullessRose Devin Jones

          Exactly

    • retrn2rapture

      PINK ROCKS!!!!!!

  • Guest

    What’s with the pink?

  • http://www.youtube.com/billtvshow Billtvshow

    Two solid choices on both ends of the design spectrum.

    I was glad mine made some people laugh and, hey, it finally brought my likes received above my comment total, woohoo!

    Not bad for $20 in gifts

  • Retrn2rapture

    Congrats on your WIN Wayne!! Really enjoying all the feedback on the logos!! Thanks Droid Life!!!!

    • http://winklerjr.carbonmade.com/ Wayne W.

      You to man, maybe they’ll do something like another user said and make a hoodie or something using both pieces. I’d buy one or some stickers to slap on some i*hones while people aren’t looking.

      • Retrn2rapture

        Hey I’m down for that, especially the sticker idea!!!!

    Loving Christopher’s logo on the left, job well done!

  • http://TechnologyViewer.com Wolfman-K

    I like them… especially the one on the right.

    minimalist on front, big un on back. Id buy that.

    • Wayne W.

      Not a bad idea…I’d buy something with that.

  • Splash

    switch ur colors up, im tired of this pink shit… besides a vagina!

    • DBK

      It’s their color, deal with it.

  • Tareq

    Both logos looks cool. I like the one on the left more but I can see it is not working in small sizes! great logos should work in any size. I tried to help the crew to understand what a logo should be to be great. I can tell no one listen.

  • eddieonofre

    I like how you use the minimalist logo for teh images watermark. It just looks really nice, it coud be the icon of teh page too while you use teh othe ras the twitter, facebook, logo
