    [Fan-Made] World of Warcraft: Journeys of the Great Sea [Logo]

    DISCLAIMER: To avoid confusion, this is a logo that I created.

    I an creating a WoW website design for fun, and I wanted to base it on a possible expansion. After some research, I managed to find that "The Great Sea" expansion is a pretty famous requested expansion.

    How does this logo look so far? If you guys like it, ill post the web design when Im done.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, or if it got anyone's hopes up.

    I like the wood, but there needs to be some ocean colors. Maybe even have the xpac name border be wavey like ocean waves.

    Yeah, more blue and green. I liked the bottom part as in a lost treasure map style thing.

    Make the globe blue ocean with the continents on the edges and little islands dotting it.

    Yeah make the world on it blue, change the bottom design so it isn't the same as MoP's, and have water spilling from the sides.

    Or have a brown globe with islands drawn on a map, and make the brown wood into ocean ripples.

    If you take a look at the Wrath of the Lich King logo, you can see bits of frost on the frame. The MoP one has dragons coiled around it and the Cata one has cracks and damage.

    It'd be tricky to work a watery element into the frame without making too big a change... spilling water would really screw with the silhouette. Maybe something like dangling seaweed?

    I like the name. Did you do the text yourself? Looks very authentic.

    I agree, it would be pretty hard to work the sea element into it. Seaweed is a definate option, Ill start playing with that. Or maybe a naga godess carved into the sides.

    Thanks! For the text, I just searched for the font that they have been using for the past expansions. It is called Burning Wrath. I added a gradient effect to it, then a opaque wood overlay.

    Im glad to hear that it looks authentic!

    And finally the internet has come full circle, and we've gotten Fan-Fiction for logos.

    Thanks!

    Ill try to add some map effects to the subtext background. Just to separate it from the MoP Logo.
