An OSR logo

I was bored after stuffing myself with turkey, so I opened up Inkscape and came up with an logo that I really liked. I am far more inclined towards one-color logos as this allows for the logo to be placed on far more surfaces: hats, shirts, product covers, etc.

Black and white version.

Old school blue version.


This logo is released Free Forever into the Public Domain with no attribution requirements or possiblity of being revoked in the future. Long live gaming.

    1. Glad you like it, I played around for a few hours messing with various hex shapes. I gave up and walked away to watch some football with my father-n-law and saw a commercial (do not even remember what it was for) and it just clicked in my head with this shape. So simple but effective.

  4. Groovy.
    What font is it?
    Or is it custom shapes?

  5. Nice logo! I think it's cool that the background can be either a hex or the silhouette of a d20.

    1. Yep, that is actually what I liked about it. A hex obviously references old school D&D, but the d20 shape makes it work across all old school games. Brilliant stroke of luck there. ;-)

    2. Hm... wouldn't this actually be closer to the silhouette of a d12? A d20 would come close, but would have offset angles. (squints at the die against the white display, burning it into his retinas...) Yeah, d12. So really, you have THREE silhouettes the logo hints at!
