Not really; we got colds, wife was tested for covid and (eventually) got a negative result. Doing ok now (apart from the usual allergies).

No logo discussion August comes to a close.

Ok, thoughts.

The two standout designs seem to be the typewriter font and magnifying glass ones. (I think the silent movie one is pretty fantastic, and think it would be funny to put on mafSepia or something, but not as a main logo.)

Magnifying glass:

I like this one the best overall. I do think there are potential legibility issues with the same color text/magnifying glass, would have to see it at logo size to see if it's actually a problem though.

Typewriter:

I like the font here best; the blood... eh, I could take it or leave it. I prefer differentiating Mafia and Scum by color rather than capitalization, but a single color does have its merits.

Image
Some combination of the simplicity of this with nsg's font, perhaps. The red looks too... thick or something in this one.

I'll think about it a bit more, but probably will put up a poll for which idea people prefer, and then we can tweak once that is finalized. (I think I'm pretty much decided against including the slogan.)

I don't like the fuzzy/scratched looks for 2 and 3, for what its worth, but I guess I'm in the minority
