So I'm making this logo for a friend's project of an online multiplayer version of the card game "Coup". This is what I made so far:

Logo v1

But the thing is I don't want to use 3 colors, as I think it makes it confusing in this case. But it also doesn't work to just make the text one of the drawing's colors, so I'm stuck. How should I go about solving this? Should I pick the color pallette again? Maybe make the faces one color?

Thanks in advance.

  • Why use color at all? The above looks fine in black and white. See also Should a logo always work in black and white? Mar 4, 2020 at 15:55
  • You would likely benefit from reading up on Resources for learning logo design and learning the difference between a logo and wordmarks. Mar 4, 2020 at 15:56

    Also, if you're talking about this Coup game it is subject to copyright and your friend cannot create his own version called the same thing and market it. Your logo could even be considered copyright infringement. Mar 4, 2020 at 15:58

    Just because you aren't selling it doesn't mean it's not copyright infringement Mar 4, 2020 at 16:20

    I second @ZachSaucier here: if this is being put online and it shares the same principles as the card / board game, expect cease and desist orders.

This is already voted as opinion-based, so here's what should be done in my opinion:

  • black text
  • orange icon
  • ditch the purple
  • recreate the icon so it has one half made of fills, and the other half, of strokes

  • Interesting idea, i like it a lot. Mar 4, 2020 at 16:22
