Help on my logo?


Recommended Posts

I need help making a sunshine effect on my logo. The logo consists of a circle (being the moon) covering over an empty space with an outline (being the sun), and I'm trying to recreate an effect seen when outside. Sunshine, if you will.

Here's what I mean:

However, I need this to appear simpler, as simple is always better. This is a logo, so it needs an iconic look. Can anyone help?

All in all, you're just another brick in the wall.

As a designer, may I warn you against making a full-color image as your logo?  You may want to consider reading some tutorials online for making a good, iconic logo.  You want it to be reproducible at many sizes, and in color as well as black-and-white.  That's why simple shapes and wordmarks make such excellent logos.

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Which is why I wanted to make this sunshine plain and simple. The moon is simply a black circle overlapping a white, empty circle with the words "Eclipse" around it. So I wanted a simple little sunshine to accompany so you'd know that it was a sun.
