Age of Avarice Logo

While I was fumbling around, trying to come up with vague logo ideas, Luke (largely unaware of what I was doing) mentioned something about a crest. Based on that offhand comment, I started in a completely different direction from the one I was initially taking. I didn't really know what I was doing or what I was going for - just trying to combine various elements (snakes, suns, stars, laurels, etc.) into something that would fit the game. Here are a few things that resulted from brainstorming, along with a somewhat more finished one-colour logo.

The first two were me following a direction that ended up being a dead end. I wanted to incorporate snakes to represent the constant atmosphere of treachery, deceit and mistrust, but the curves looked far too... well, wrong. It really makes me appreciate Jane's dragon snowboard design that much more. I'd link to it, but I don't think she's posted it anywhere.


The latin phrase (courtesy of Luke again), "Omnes Quod Mitet Aurun Est" supposedly means "All that Glitters is Gold".
