Title: My wife the graphic designer says the logo says XIMO

Apparently to here this looks like the name of the company is XIMO since the logo is integrated into the M.  I honestly never noticed it until she said something.

The mind is a beautiful thing

Its XIM One, Obsiv just doesnt want to admit it after the Boner meltdown and the upcoming Halo One incident ;)


Nah the truth is its a reference to Orbital and OMGsus to give them some credits too, the XIM Orbsivus! :P

it looked like " XIMO " from the first day i looked at it. i know it's  " XIM " so i neglect the logo's similarity with " O "..

a lot of logos have weird stuff in some people's eyes..

I think a simple fix would be to make the "O" part a little larger. Not much, but just enough to show that it's not a letter. Right now, it's the same size as the M.

The reason for this is the following , in order for microsoft to approve this , it has to promote their system somehow in this casa xim o which stands for xim one .  I was told that they would change the logo to ximo4 so it promotes both the ps4 and the xbox one at the same time . That way sony and microsoft are gonna approve it

I feel like you're joking. But you do say absurd things, much like this. It can be hard to tell.

hmm.. i think it's possible we try to record and analyse your encounters with demonic language to decipher it and grasp its range of adequate adjectives if there's something more fitting.. lotta hours though

I agree. The logo sucks. Its a crappy font with pieces cut out of it.

....But I do think you guys do a good job making a crappy design look somewhat decent.

I would re-do it for you, but Im thinking since you have it plastered over all the XIM4's your about to sell that your gonna want to stick with this version for a while.

Consider it for XIM5 :P

Honestly my wife would agree, this logo isn't great from a graphic design standpoint...

Make a dot on the I into the crosshair, it might not be symmetric though.

If you want to keep your cross hair... put it behind the X

That way you could have a simple "mark" apart from the full logo... which would just be just the X

Also, the full logo would read more clearly.

Finally, change the font.

Guys, I made a new logo, and I think it's pretty rad.

I'm a big fan of the embossing, and I feel like I really made this baby pop. It probably needs to be bigger though.

had a few extra minutes this morning. This is the type of layout I was talking about.. would obviously need to be cleaned up a lot. The X and the crosshair need to be seperated more visually... but this was like 20 minutes.. I also think that the X as a standalone element would be very cool.

I like the one with red in the background, but only if it glowed and didn't have the pattern on there. 

The blacked out grey one looks a tad tacky imo, Nothing that i could do myself though, so i'm not knocking you as a person. I mean it looks like a car badge lol.

Eh to make a good logo it needs to look good in a vector format.

Yep. ^^ Vector Format would need to be delivered as well....

but I'm not doing any more work on this until OBvs chimes in.

I don't think he'd be willing to change the logo at this point because all the XIM4's use the current version... but I wish this (and the website) was something he would leverage the community more on. IMO the Venom presentation is much more professional.

The easy/quickfix solution to the current logo would be just to push the white of the crosshair to more of a mid-gray. That would pull the white "XIM" letters forward visually and create some separation.

this would have been so much different if OB just named the 4th XIM Orb..

also it seems to be a trend, first it was the 'P' and now "there's no 'O' in XIM" xD

Put the BF4 disc on an old turn table and slowly rotate it backwards while playing. Those terrible noises? Those are the sounds we all made while playing with a controller before we had XIM support for Next-Gen.
