Platform Clear Logos

  1. v2 Platform Logos Professionally Redrawn + Official Versions, New BigBox Defaults

    This is a giant collection of platform logos drawn digitally by hand. This took well over 500 hours of work over 15 months. While console logos exist all over the internet, this collection aims to bring them to a higher level of polish and accuracy. The default logos in BigBox will now come from this set. It was extremely tedious to ensure a very high level of accuracy across thousands of files.
     
    So Many Versions!
    Each included platform has multiple logo variants. Basically, many consoles had different logos for different regions and time periods. There are also smaller variations such as with or without a trademark (tm). There are black and white versions for each of these. With all of these it can add up to over 50 small variations for one platform! This would be impossible to navigate so I’ve split them up into smaller categories. For each format (Normal, Large and SVG) there are Light and Dark folders. For either of those there are: “Color”, “Black & White” and “Just White” (or Just Black respectively). If you wanted to use a minimalistic dark theme, you could use the “Just White” versions for a contemporary look. If you wanted logos for a standard dark theme then you could use “Light - Color”.
     
    Official Versions Included
    Besides the many hand drawn logos, I’ve also curated multiple logos that are the OFFICIAL renderings. Meaning, vector art ripped from official sources such as websites and pdf manuals. Finding official source art in the wild is pretty uncommon and required many hours of digging. Most of the source art was not in color so most of these colors are still generated by me. Some of the platforms with official logos include:

    Sadly, some of these wasted a lot of my time because I drew them and later found the official versions.
     
    The Drawing Process:
    My process for drawing a logo required many steps. I first did research on each logo. Then I would dig deep for the best references I could find. One rule I had was to never trust any image. I would compare multiple sources and make sure the source I chose was not fan made or some modern re-release that changed the logo. If a better source was found that showed differences from what I drew I would redraw it again (it sucked). I redrew the NEO GEO logo about 5 times before I was finally happy with it. Generally, source art would include box art images, adverts, brochures, and manual scans. Archive.org and Manualslib.com were a huge help for a lot of these scans. I would then use the pen tool in Adobe Illustrator and go to town! Sometimes if my source was really amazing, I could finish the whole logo in an hour and a half or so. Other times it would take much, much longer.

    Getting the correct color was always challenging and required intelligent guesswork. For example, with the classic Konami logo, I brought in 20 images. Gathered the color from all of those and found the average color for the red and orange. Then I’d tweak it slightly more, usually to improve saturation.
    When it came to fonts, I would always search for it but rarely found exact matches. If the font was found I’d obviously use it, but If not I’d have to hand draw it. However, a couple of the smaller taglines/subtitles do use a very close match. Hand drawing those fonts would do more harm than good. While drawing a logo I took great care to make things as visually pleasing as possible. Every little section of each letter of each logo was considered. Curves were carefully made to be smooth with as few anchor points as possible. Letters align with each other and angled letters all share the same angle. Hand drawing fonts is very tricky.

    Many logos were substantially harder than I’d anticipated. The Sega Saturn US logo for instance, drove me insane. It took over 40 hours to draw (not to mention wasted time from failed attempts months earlier). I used Adobe Illustrator to mimic every highlight, tiny color shift, shading and glow. When I was working on this logo, I’d come home from my graphic design day job and then spend 4 hours on it, which would only finish part of one letter. As I worked, I’d have a couple copies of the logo in the same file and a couple times it bottomed out 32GB of ram!

     
    Unique Versions
    This collection brings a few unique logos to the table. I’m just going to list a few. I created multiple new arcade and pinball logos, although previous arcade logos are here too. I highly polished the Daphne logo as it needed some love. I drew a detailed version of the TeknoParrot logo which seems to be uncommon in high resolution. I also created Sega system 16 and 32 arcade logos based on the exact font used in the Sega 32X and Sega CD (Copperplate Gothic Std 31AB stretched horizontally to 130%). The Capcom logos have stylized alternate versions based on a gradated version Capcom rarely uses. There are several other unique logos I could list here.
     
    White Outline - Default Versions
    Since these logos are replacing the default logos in BigBox, Faeran smartly requested that I create versions with white outlines around the outside. That way logos could be seen against any background color. I only made the outline versions for the options I gave to Faeran. I don’t plan on making outline versions for the rest of the variations. That said, the versions I did make are included here. The outline versions don’t look quite as nice in my opinion but they serve a very functional and important purpose. Solid black logos for some systems, like the PSP, would not be visible in certain themes without a white outline. However, theme creators or those wanting to add logos to a single theme, I would still recommend the non-outline versions for the cleanest look.
     
    Conclusion
    I included every platform and version that I wanted to. There are some more obscure ones I could draw but I didn’t see the need to seeing as how I've created 22,000 files as is. If I knew how much work this was going to take I would've never gotten myself into this (lol). I hope that you guys get a lot of enjoyment out of these. I’m glad I made them and it feels really good to finally be able to upload them. I made these originally for LaunchBox but they can be used elsewhere. I will always appreciate credit if you use them. Needless to say, I don’t own the rights to the logos and these are NEVER to be sold in any way.
    Thanks
    Special thanks to Juketstu and Faeran for their valuable feedback.
    Also, huge thanks again to Faeran and the LaunchBox team for using these as the new defaults for BigBox!

  7. Steam Deck - Misc Clear Logos, Icons

    I created a few clear logos featuring the Steam Deck! 
    Clear Logos
    The intention is to use these for playlists or platforms, like "Steam Deck Verified" as an example. There are black and white variants for use with light or dark themes.
    Icon Files
    I also included two .ICO files to use in Windows, the reason being that I now have a scaled down LB/BB build that lives on my Steam Deck, and my primary portable build that's much larger on an external drive that's accessible when the Deck is docked. I wanted to create icons to further differentiate them on my start screen. 
    Credit 
    Thanks again to @Dan Patrick - I used his recreations of the LaunchBox and BigBox cube logos, and sourced the Steam Deck outline image online and modified it to add more contrast between the outline and base colors.

  9. Machtendo - Platform Categories

    I created some Platform Category Clear Logos!
    I had been using a set created by @knewlife which I really liked (found here). I just ran into a problem with the images scaling quite like I'd like to see. I decided to go ahead and recreate a couple of my favorites from scratch for a refresh, and riffed on his original idea with the others. These all started as 4K images @ 600 ppi and trimmed down from there.
    Arcade = Capcom Logo (recreation)
    Computers = IBM Logo (recreation)
    Consoles = PlayStation Logo
    Handhelds = Gameboy Logo
    Pinball = Williams Logo
    I made sure to use colors pulled from what I consider the definitive collection of logos created by @Dan Patrick where I could.
    I also made variations with white and black outlines with a couple of different line weights to accommodate light or dark themes.

  21. Silver Ring Clear Logos - Rare Systems

    For my setup I have been using the silver ring clear logo set that was created by @viking, Probably the best logo pack there is. As detailed at as the pack is, I have a few custom and very rare systems that didn't have logos. So I made them. The full credit for the logos and the template are @viking  and I hope it is ok to use them. You can see all the systems that are included in the screenshots. Once again, none of these are included in his pack and have not found any of these systems with logos already made.
    Custom Systems - All the rare systems that I have included
    And a few goodies...
    Arcade logos - These are a mainly arcade boards for those who perhaps like to split some systems off from MAME or who download arcade packs individually.
    Magazine Logos - I have these full catalogue of magazines in my collections. The magazines are in CBZ and I use Cdisplay through rocketlauncher to launch them beautifully. They are freely and legally distributed at places on the web, Google is your friend.
    Hacks Logos - These are  the exact logos that @viking made but I added a hacks logo on them for those who like to have a seperate category for hacked games. If there are any issues posting these I will gladly remove them.
     
    The original PSD that these are based on can be downloaded from the original thread here but I have included my slightly modified PSD in certain packs that are changed. For example the hacks pack so that you can make any logo a "hacks" logo and the magazines pack has a custom background. 
     
     As I add more systems to my collection, I will update this pack accordingly. Of course nothing will be duplicated if it was already created elsewhere or in the original pack. Hope someone can use them!
