View Full Version : BART's vs. My logo

I was bored, and I was wondering if you thought my logo for the Bay Area Rapid Transit was good or not.

Here is the original (BART's):

Here are mine. Here is the stationing/signage:

And this is what they would put on the cars:

As you can see, a dominant feature is the 4 colored dots. They add a bit of color to the logo, and also symbolizes the different lines on the system.

I actually do have to do this for part of a project in school, so please be serious in response.
Thanks :)

Seems good, better than original.First one of your's tho, maybe you could move lower the dots and the text bellow it, and move "BART" above.Idk, i mean, it might would look better, maybe not, but its worth a try :)

Thanks! I will try that out when I get my mouse working again (using photoshop is hell on a trackpad :P).

I actually like yours a lot better, they're more pleasing to the eye, and the colors play nicely together off of the white background. As said, maybe try changing up the arrangement of things. Definitely post the final product when you're done! I'd like to see

Yours seems better to me... honestly the colour really ads to it. I'd like to see you tweek out the kinks, and come up with something to blow their minds :P

Yeah, get that improved ever so slightly, then submit it to them, they may actually like it and decide to use it.

Okay, I did some tweaking of it. The first one keeps the same stuff, just rearranged. The second has the old "ba" but with a face lift. Which one do you like better?

And here's the original BART logo, just for comparison and refresh:

Again, any opinions welcome :)

They should accept it, it'll be so cool if they did!

I swear... If the next time I take the BART and I see 4 colored dots and a blue "ba", I'm going to scream then die of embarrasment xD

I like them both, but I bet they would like the first better, but that's just what I think.

Yours is much better, I agree with the others. Try compressing the circles a bit so they overlap - it may or may not look better while implying "rapid transit."

I actually love your logo and how it goes with the colors of the areas on the map.
I'm so used to seeing the old BA though since I lived near San Francisco for 14 years of my life. :p

No response from BART. Oh well, it sucked anyways.

Whatever you say, :\
I'll be working on a new logo for VTA, after I finish my finals and being too sad to do anything.
