Just a reminder, the logo needs to be recognisable in very small format, namely 16x16 pixels, the coinmarketcap size.
Here's a quick comparison of ardor designs and some current logos on coinmarketcap.



So maybe a version with the graphic sign only and another in larger format with the "ardor" text

Very good reminder!
It seems the design with a yellow accented leg doesn't really resemble an A anymore at that scale.
I guess it doesn't mean that a large version of the logo couldn't have a detailed coloured accent though.

Reminiscing the good old days of the NXT logo design - seems like yesterday.  :)

This is a great collection! Ready to cast my vote.

This is my proposal, just finetuned it little more. Colours may be tweaked to specific themes later on if needed as seen on the examples below. The designs are presented here in 300pix, 150pix and coinmarketcap-16pix sizes. Let me know if different sizes or high-res originals are needed.

Looks nice, but do you have versions with the text "ardor" with it? I thought that was necessary.

I prefer the Marenkar design. It's a lot better IMO, it's doing the job.

Now the color, it's more difficult to say, i liked the original one. Less the unicolor one.

The shorter leg made the logo seems more "mobile" and "dynamic".

Are you sure the text needs to go through the logo? Might be easier to read imo if it was below the logo, higher contrast.

Surely the text may be varied in many ways. My take on this is that the logo is just pure visual image, simple sign. It may be expanded with text but that is secondary and can be varied according to need. Like for example Nike logo is just the curve, Adidas is three stripes, Shell is a shell. And they all are enhanced with the text if needed. Different ways in different contexts.

The reason why I am asking for it is because Ardor is still unknown and at the start I feel it very necessary to be able to add the name.
Once we become more established, the logo alone will be enough.
So it's good to have the option from the start and eventually the logo will be enough :)

Some txt variants. I think in the end it depends on the context what works for the text, the layout of webpage and whatnot..

I think a more modern font will look much better with your logo.  ::)

Could be. These are just quick sketches and my font-collection is quite limited on this workstation.. But feel free to play around if you feel like it, I don't need to keep it all to myself designwise.. this is decentralized after all  8)

+1 I like the illusion of the depth perception.

Reminds me of the adobe logo.

4,5, and 6 look like the Star Trek symbol. Probably copyrighted.

Much better now!  :)

I don't like gradients, so I would go with a solid red one but with one color only.

@peter: IMHO you can show the logo without the name, if it gets too small (like an icon).

Thanks!

I'm fine with the solid red. As I said, i's an extremely close second for me. :)

I've thought about the solid black logo for a while. IMHO it's too blocky, please consider using a very dark grey instead! A dark grey would work very well with a little bit of carmine red (just to make it more interesting, an eyecatcher), try this color on the lower right block. Could be a bit fancy while keeping the professional touch at the same time.

Sorry, didn't have the time for a mockup until now!

That's what I was talking about:
