    It looks like the logo from The Verge

    • Jaymoon

      I was thinking the same thing....  I like the cartoon looking police one from Ryan Smith, but it probably doesn't scale well, nor would it fit in a square.

    • Benjamin Morris

      And/or Polygon, which I guess is a good thing. :-)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Just because The Verge has a triangle in its logo doesn't mean nobody else can use it. Google Drive also uses a triangle, along with many other companies. It just worked in this case and was quite geometrically witty.

      • Zane

        The Verge patented the triangle... Sorry 'bout cha

            As well they should. Man, didn't Android have enough problems with people claiming we steal/copy everything?

        • Bojan Gutic

          The Verge is Apple?!

      • sdcoiner76

        I don't think he was implying that you couldn't you it.  He was stating that it looked like the Verge logo, which I also thought the first time looking at it. The logo chosen isn't my fav either but hey I come for the content not the logo.

      • DrewNusser

        As long as it's not in the shape of an apple you should be just fine.

    • Simon Belmont

      My first thought too. But I find the new AP logo to be more visually appealing and interesting than The Verge's logo.

      Congratulations to the winner and good job to the runner ups. Cheers.

      Agreed. Too close in my opinion. Either way, 'grats to the winner.

      The Verge's logo is nothing but the Penrose triangle. This one has some variations, at least.. Not that I'm accusing you of saying AP copied the Verge's logo but I'm just pointing out the universal truth that originality does not exist :) 
       
      A good and apt choice by AP but probably not the best looking one.. Congratulations to Mark for winning the competitio..

    • masterdebater

      I agree. It is theVerge's logo, mirrored and flipped with a different color.

      And here is a virtual Acer tab for Joshua Richards [__o_], fantastic work man.

  • Zach Blackwood

    There are some impressive designs there. Couple of the runner-ups are my personal favorites, but the winner is still very cool and well done. Congratulations to both the winner and you at AP.

  • TrianglesFTL

    no offense, but the winner was the worst one on there.  How are 2 triangles an "A" and "P"?  I see that it's nice and clean and that's what the site is going for, but I think there were much better ones they could have went with.

  • James_C_L

    lots of talent here!

  • http://androidforums.com/members/spartoi.html Spartoi

    Joshua Richards and Stano's logo look much better imo. The winners logo looks like The Verge logo and has no relevance to the website's name (AndroidPolice). If I saw that logo, I would guess that the website started with a V.

    • Brandon Fletcher

      Yeah, Joshua Richards' would've edged out the winner in my book. I like the winner, just not as much after seeing Joshua's logo.  :)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      You may be surprised to know the role Joshua will play in AP's future :P

  • Bojan Gutic

    I personally love about half of them! My favorite is the one you chose, Artem! Reminds me of the Google Drive logo!

  • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

    As with every design contest, the opinions of who should have won are split - as the saying goes, opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one. If you asked every member of AP and then every reader, they'd all give mostly different answers. There are many worthy runners-up, but we had to pick one winner, and that winner is Mark Evans.

    • Simon Belmont

      Everyone's got one and they all stink! Haha.

      I'm just kidding. This was a fun contest!

  • http://twitter.com/WillieFDiazSF William Diaz

    Was it my first selection, no.. But then I saw the others, and thought... "While they all are kinda cool, very few are logos that are easily identifiable, easy to print, easy to emulate on merchandise and the like, than the one selected" So yeah, Id say its a good choice.

  • moelsen8

    wow.. these are fantastic.  i personally like ryan smith's right-hand image (the one with the antennas coming out of the "R") the best.  that's pretty cool looking.  but first place is neat too.

    • Chiper_tss_tss

      The same here...

      • Chiper_tss_tss

        Actually, eM82 / Misi the one all the way to the left should have won!!!

  • http://twitter.com/tweet077 RonaldoVerta

    Site redesign? About time! The winner's logo is decent but like others mentioned, too close to the Verge's. I like Joshua's though. When can we expect to see the redesign?

  • http://twitter.com/Harsha_Aithal Harsha

    Everything except for the last is awesome. Congrats to everybody..!!

  • Chiper_tss_tss

    Just like every other contest, The better design never win. Its the very reason I don't enter no more. You put a lot of work in to your design, and something that doesn't look as good wins. The Creative Banner Design Contest winer case in point!

  • SebaKL

    I can't share the enthusiasm nor sentiment toward the "Winner". It's an old looking design and really quite unappealing. The gradient which imitates dimension, was introduced to identity design about 4 years ago, and by now, these logos are really very common. Secondly, I find the typography not very legible. Not to mention, the shape which should represent P, looks like aforethought. A really shoddy and lazy modification of the upside down A.  

    YES logo - exact same approach:
    http://www.abaf.asia/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/yes-logo-large.png 

    http://behance.vo.llnwd.net/profiles4/157270/projects/3736827/070203accb04b71fb3345b7b21a01c1b.png http://behance.vo.llnwd.net/profiles4/163135/projects/1839045/d959168aab3c6a8d324566940a800577.png 

    That's is a problem with speculative design. hundreds of mediocre logos, hoping to score one gem. Most of which, are developed by people who have very little idea about design, or branding, not to mention aesthetics or even basic design taste.I know it's easy for me to say, sitting in the comfort of my home, running down people I don't know. But for every logo above, I could easily find few, from which they were inspired, or even worst, directly ripped off. And none really deserve any attention, being so very uninspiring and ordinary. 

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      As I mentioned, the design that is more monochrome and doesn't have the shadowing is the winning entry, not the colored one with the shadowing, so the final logo wouldn't have looked like your examples anyway.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Micah-Madru/100001151887665 Micah Madru

    At first I saw the winner and thought "Why didn't I enter this, I could've won!" Then I saw the runner ups and was left very confused....

  • http://komorkomania.pl/author/michal-brzezinski Michal Brzezinski

    IMO logo created by Joshua Richards really kicks ass. And I have to admit - it must have been really difficult choice.

  • yeekoslovia

    I don't mind the monochrome versions of the new logo but IMO Joshua Richards should have won. I especially like the green on black version. On another note a lot of the runner up designs look ripped off from other logos.

  • Al Mcdowall

    I think the entries that you showed here were of a very high standard in the main. Very clean and creative work.

    Personally, I love the winning logo. Simple, easy to remember and identify, interesting enough to deserve a proper look. Just what a logo should be.

  • http://g.gt1.net/ Gennadiy

    Excellent choice!

  • Jay

    Hey AP maybe you should have ran a poll to determine the winner.
    I LOVE the abstract structure of the one chosen but if the "Android Police" wasn't there one could be forgiven for thinking it was A D.

    Your website, your choice and congratulations to Mark H. Evans but a poll might have yielded a different result.
    Joshua would have been my pick.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      We tried the idea of a poll before, but when a prize is at stake, people start to cheat. Things get dirty. Either way, the final design will be different, and I think you guys will like what we have coming up.

  • http://twitter.com/dnlkbox Daniel Box

    Personally, Ryan Smith's deserved to win.. Very nice and clean! Congrats to the winner, though!

  • PJ

    Nice! Looks great! 

  • Ray G.

    I personally preferred Josua Richard's and Levon2's.

  • http://twitter.com/havens1515 Randroid

    I agree with so many of these other people, that a lot of the runners up are better than the winner.

    Whatever though, it's not my website. And All of them are much better than I could ever do, so I can't really complain.

    Congrats to the winner, and to all the runners up: Great job. They all look awesome.

    We all have our opinions. In the end, its the blog owner's choice. The current logo does need a bit of a facelift anyway. And we really come here for the news. Having said that, I will add my 2 cents. I like the colors of the winner selection. But I prefer the letter style or joshua richards. A combination of both would be nice. The green logo from joshua is my favorite. just my opinion. Regardless, very good entries!

  • Nortstar17

    I know several people in branding/marketing and have picked up a lot from them over the years, and I think you may have a hard time to associate AP with this logo. Without the word mark, its difficult to know that is an A and P. Also, it could be confused as up and down arrows.
     
    I like most of the submissions and can see how difficult the decision must have been. Hopefully it works out!

  • Marcus

    Don't care for it. Many of the runner ups are far better.

    When I first saw 
    Mark H. Evans' logo I knew he would win. Congrats :)!
