The new Hydrogenaudio logo

May i present to you the new Hydrogenaudio logo, as chosen by the staff. After many hours of discussion and editing, we narrowed it down to this. It is a combination of  lucpes' logo and the text from Jaester's logo, with some more editing.

We chose it because it looks simple, yet professional. The logo symbolizes the spreading of information as well as expanding sound waves. It's easily recognizable and can also be modified to a smaller logo for sites that want to link to us. The text is simple and non-distracting. As you can see, we decided not to have headphones in the logo. We felt that it wouldn't be individual and original enough.

We would like to thank everyone that submitted one or several logos. We had a hard time choosing between them, and we didn't make it easy on ourselves. We considered many completely different logos, modified our favorites over and over again, and compared many screenshots to see how it feels like when it's on the page. There were many logos that looked stunning, but didn't fit the theme of HA at the end of the day. We want none of the submitters feel bad that their logo hasn't been chosen; there were great pieces among them, but there can be only one.

We hope you like this logo. Okay, it doesn't have hype spaced-out, photorealistic graphics, but it's like we see this forum: on point.

The text and colors are great, however, the logo could use some more work (good thing is it's simple).

Yes, it may still change a little, but this is pretty much the final concept.

It's great

Though I don't really like the text, the logo is far better than the old one

No offense. But what does this logo actually say? I kinda liked one of them that had a waveform / a headset and one more thing  I am sure you guys have came up with this in the end as a result of thorough analysis and I am no democrat either. But I'd be happier if I could fully appreciate the meaning of this logo. Thanks.

Edit: I know it represents expanding sound waves, but my question was in view of psychoacoustic compression.

I like it. Simple and clean.

I use the same colour scheme in my blog... easy on the eyes.

Additionally to what dibrom has said, you can recognize an "A" (inner grey 3/4 circle + point) sourrounded by a "H" (the 2 middle 1/3 circles + the point) = HA. Needs some immagination, I admit.

I like it very much.  Re: not having "hype spaced-out, photorealistic graphics"...I much prefer it this way.  Less is more.

After an sucessful attempt to install Linux, I picked HA as the first site to be visited using my the new OS...
and the new logo was a nice surprise too and its looks good.

Very nice logo indeed  In my opinion, the anti-aliasing in the text could have been better, though - it seems blurry and pixelated at the same time.

Fantastic! That's superb, solid branding if I've ever seen it.

Congrats!

Very good selection. Simple yet very meaningful. Matches HA theme very well.

But, I think if "the audio technology enthusiast's resource" could be limited to the right end of "hydrogenaudio" (I mean not extending beyond O) that would be a bit better looking.

Anyways, congrats!

Thanks for choosing something based on my 'work'. I'll try to do more refining once I get at work... It looks ok now, but the font on audio does not match the hydrogen one, 'the audio technology enthusiast's resource' should be all caps (in theory), +also some kerning adjustments...

Super simple.
Awesome.

Good that it finally came down to just one logo.

We had a "taste" of what having different logos might be like.
I did not like it.

I like the new logo very much.

It looks great.  I like its simplicity and it looks very stylish and symbolic at the same time.

I can imagine that some that invested a while designing all the 3D, photorealistic logos will think: "All this work and they end up choosing THAT?!" 
Anyway, I kinda like it, too. Definitely slicker than the last one.

I like it very much!

I voted for other logos in the logo-thread, but IMHO this fits much better to HA's style.

I admit I prefered some of the other designs, but this one works. It's much more modern than the others, IMO. I don't like that modern look, particularly, but it gives a quick, symbolic reference for HA.

Good choice, and good reasoning. I never doubted the administration would pick the right logo for a moment.  Nice to see the design's been selected.

Maybe the text should be right aligned, it would be easier for the eye and better to resize into a smaller logo.
Otherwise nice,clean and simple
