MineBanana is a server network for Minecraft, the world's best-selling PC video game. Minecraft is a game that has changed the face of gaming. Minecraft is a sandbox game that empowers its players to do whatever they want. The game lets the player do whatever they choose - there is no set goal. To the casual player, this means building castles, fighting zombies, and exploring the infinite world. But to some maniacally passionate fans, this means stepping outside of the game to bring new content. Mods, reskins, and custom servers (that's us!) MineBanana is a company that is not only providing a place for players to play, but also a place where we have created our very own Minecraft gamemodes. We are using Minecraft as a sort of game-engine. When we launch, you will be able to connect to our server and within seconds be thrown into a world filled with thousands of players and new ways to play the game. We are quite literally expanding onto Minecraft and giving players new experiences. MineBanana has been built from the ground-up by a team of dedicated professionals. Everything about our network is completely custom made. This is critical to our mission: to separate ourselves from the many thousands of other Minecraft servers out there. This mission should be communicated through our logo. **** Minecraft is a game that has captured the hearts of children all across the world. This is the game children are growing up with - just like Nintendo's Mario games might have been for you. Our target audience is children ranging from 7-15 years old. It is extremely important that this information does NOT invoke a generic child-friendly design. We don't want a logo that looks like Toys R Us, we want a logo that a young child would perceive as being cool. Something they can be proud to show off. It is also worth noting that although 7-15 years of age is unquestionably the dominate playerbase, there are many above 16 as well. MineBanana wants to work within Minecraft to give all of these millions of players a place to play unique content with their friends. They might have their Minecraft game open, but they will be playing entirely different, new games on MineBanana. We are a scalable platform that aims to never stop growing and hopes to provide unique content for Minecraft for the years to come. ****** PLEASE SEE NOTES BELOW - IT HAS VERY DESCRIPTIVE INFORMATION ABOUT THE LOGO I AM LOOKING FOR - THANK YOU! ******
Logo types to explore
*Please note I feel the sliders are not the best thing to look at, I would ignore them if possible and read below: ROUGH LOGO DESCRIPTION ******* I like the attached logos, particularly "ex1" (the orange one,) because of it's utility. The single "M" is used for things like Twitter, YouTube - things with a square profile picture, while the full logo, "Mineplex" is used on a website and where else appropriate. However, please note I am only interested in this logo mainly because of it's utility. I will mention this again later. I want artwork in our logo. With the word "banana" in it, I definitely want some sort of banana incorporated into it. I think it makes our logo feel fun. At the same time, it's very important that it in no way could look phallic, because this is a kid-friendly server and we do not want to scare away their parents. I think the banana should definitely have some sort of artistic interpretation to it. I think it would be cool to have the banana fit a Minecraft theme. *** For example, one thing I thought of was to take the Minecraft pickaxe (an iconic tool in the game, linked below as "minecraft_pickaxe.jpg") and replace the blue part with a banana. It's silly, but I think something like that would really stick in the head of a Minecraft player because every time they use that Minecraft tool - which is nearly all the time - they might think of the MineBanana server. How great would it be to take something that all Minecraft players use in the normal game and associate that with our Minecraft server? PLEASE NOTE: If you were to do this "banana pickaxe," you cannot use content from Minecraft, like the pickaxe attached - it's copyrighted, and an artistic interpretation is better anyway! Lastly, as mentioned with the orange logo, whatever art is done should flow with our logo, perhaps quite literally attached to the text, or maybe above it, in it, etc. This way, like the orange logo, we could "take out" a part of it to use elsewhere. * I think this idea of infusing the artwork with the text is interesting, but it is by NO means the only thing I am looking for. We don't HAVE to have this "take out" utility.
