New Logo for WICA
« on: January 19, 2022, 01:03:52 PM »
Dear all,

As commented here, we were thinking of updating the WICA logo. Based on the same idea as Carcassonne Central, it shares the same little icon displayed on browser tabs. As a consequence, you cannot tell apart tabs with CarcC and WICA pages, which is very common in my case. ???

Snearone volunteered for the task right away (Thank you so much! ;D) and he sent us a bunch of different options. You can see a nice showcase of the ones Sinscerly and I liked best... We would like to share them with you so you can also cast you vote and help us pick one.

The new options show a dark blue background decorated the a filigree inspired by the back of the tiles and the C2 rulebooks. This dark blue background, which echoes the design of the 20th Anniversary Edition, serves as perfect contrast for a capital letter in gold or silver with a polished metallic finish adding some relief. The are two options for the letter as well: A "C" represesenting the letter on the back of the tiles or a "W" as a reference to WikiCarpedia or WICA.

The animated image below presents 5 options:
0 - Current one: no change
1 - Golden C
2 - Golden W
3 - Silver C
4 - Silver W

Please let us now your preference. Thank you in advance for your help!

Why not the word: WICA in the typical Carcassonne letters?

That could be an option... I don't know how it would look when scaled down to 16x16 pixels...

We can use the C / W for the favicon and WICA perhaps for the full logo that is on every page (back to mainpage button). Combinations are possible.

I agree with Corinthiens13 - consistent, but different. Sorry, but I don't think the "W" works.

I like the first edition C logo for this site, and the second edition golden C on blue background for the rules wiki. Silver C on blue background would be my second choice, but Gold C is winning so...

Golden C for Carcassonne Central, silver C for WICA  :yellow-meeple:

That's my opinion as well. I started by making a gold W to make it different and familiar at the same time, Meepledrone asked me to make a standard C in the same style, the color of which I later also changed from gold to silver to make it stand out.
So silver for WICA, and gold for CarcC should fit best :D
I use tapatalk exclusively for CarcC, attached what it would look like.
Why not the word: WICA in the typical Carcassonne letters?
I have prepared those, however in the official majuscule they do not look too good, capitalization of two letters looks better but should rather not be used ;)

Perfect for me. I think a single letter looks best ans is more eye-catching than four letters.
