The most dangerous question: Demoscene Symbol

category: residue [glöplog]
true, but that indicates that the effect itself is perhaps visually one step too far ahead. by the way, how is the basic swapping of the vector coordinates called that produces this distinguished triangle pattern? (yes, i dont know.)

Nowadays it's been a lot of that Revision circle thing, but i really wouldnt mind if it was a nice glenz.

More seriously, a Glenz vector is a good idea, it's tricky as a good demo fx should be!

question is, would a musician be happy with it?
since the glenz alone is a pure graphical thing (so code and gfx may be covered)

But using only 2 colors seems to spoil the glenz effect. :]
cos it's not 'glenz' anymore!

maybe 3 squares (or whatever) each with a symbol representing code, gfx and music, pillars of the scene :D
there are some very prominent rather complex symbols in history, yes.

the youtube play button is ofcourse extremely well known and communicative. i guess in an unifying way, it already means more to people than ✝️ for example. (actually it is 2.2 billion christians vs currently 1.8 billion youtube users)

i forgot to say: neoneye: the glider is also a very basic, very interesting concept. (noted)

does 1337 only identify hackers or did we invent that?

Just add four vu-meters! Two each side of that glenz! :D

I also thought about the (crappy) YouTube icon, or even a sarcastic version of it. But seriously. You can easily paint the famous pig on the toilet with some circles from the front (but personally I do not like the pig anyway -> boring). Just to mention it to the think tank. I see this pig (or whoever) holding a sign (or screen) with a pig on it holding a sign with a pig on it, and so on, as long as you can scale it ...

But more importantly, where can I download DUCK.3DS?

@ham that is actually a very good idea.
I just now remembered "Demo Or Die!" - is that still valid? I used to love anything with "or Die" in it. So much in fact, that in the 90s we used to graffiti "Die or Die" all over our small towns.

oh and it seems simplicity is very very pre 2019ish, logos/icons/symbols can now be all over the place, as big corporate proves:
