First of all, couple of words about me. I'm a 23 years old aspiring graphic designer. I've managed to finish several design projects, and even to create 2, 3 commercial works. I am a huge fan of the TES series since I was first introduced to it by the Morrowind. I'm stunned by the beauty of the Skywind, and Skyblivion projects. I really get nostalgia boner whenever I see some of the screenshots posted on this forums. That's why I want to help, and be a part of the project. I want to be a 3d modeler, but because my skills are not topnotch, for the time being I want to help you with overall branding of the Skywind project.
The rebranding process I want to start with the name itself. I do not think that "Skywind" is a bad name, by any means, but the problem is, that this name is not as creative, and clever as the project deserves it to be. Simply combining SKYRIM with MORROWIND was great to catch the public attention, but since it is already working, we should rename the project to something more prestigious. So, following the Skyrim naming process, I decided to rename Skywind to "Nerevarine". It is a great name, because it conveys the notion of being someone special (as in: dragonborn, dawnguard), it has sentimental meaning, and it is simple to remember, and/or understand.
Second step was designing the logo. I thought that the logo should represent the main features of the project. The key features in my opinion are: elegance (everything is made according to lore, and ethics of being against the piracy), strength (project is growing at a steady pace) and the "foreignness" (it is Morrowind, that we're talking about ; ) ). The result of that combination is this:
As you can see, the font I designed is fairly simplistic, but it has a special "weirdness" to it.
Afterwards I created some graphics, to visualize how would logo work in promo materials.
The last thing was the symbol of the project. This is still an early sketch, but I think, that the best choice would be to choose The Moon And Star, but not as in Morrowind's logo, but as [SPOILER] a ring that Nerevarine obtain during the main quest [/SPOILER].
What do you think? I was doing it in my spare time, just for fun, but I need your words of criticism :)
