I much prefer the new design with the chameleon characteristics without the eyeballs in the oo's but i prefer the fading colours of the first design.

I agree there, I like the gradient from the first one, but the character qualities of the new one. The eyes were cute but didn't fit in, the new K really signifies Yooka. I also like the slightly changed letter shapes of the new logo too. I think if they did the old gradient colors the new logo would be 110% perfect.

The original colors with the new design would be heaven! (Without the eyes obviously)

In my mind, they could add on a bit and color Laylee's wings, but I'd have to see it to decide. Replacing the eyes for that Yooka pattern was excellent.

I say keep the flatter look, add the gold rims from the original and it's perfect. Brighter vs darker colors depends on what their doing behind the scenes. If we can expect some grungier Clanker areas, then the darker green seems fine.

None of this is all that important to me though :lol:

This isn't even a contest, the new design stands head and shoulders above the old one period.

Edit: It also fits right alongside the old Banjo-Kazooie logo now with the new design for Yooka-Laylee's logo.

I guess I'm apathetic about the gradient, either way. But the eyes definitely made more sense for the Kickstarter ("see, google-eyes!"), than for a finished product.
New logo does way better on the "gut feeling" test -- 9/10! The dash of yooka-red adds some nice zest.

New one definitely represents the characters better. I remember when I first saw the original logo, I wondered why 'Laylee' had bat wings, but Yooka had no trace of the chameleon. It made me subconsciously wonder if Laylee was the main character; it drew attention to the wings of the duo, for me.

I will miss the eyes though, but they weren't really suitable for a proper logo.

Easter Egg idea
Stare at the logo long enough on the title screen and the eyes in 'Yooka' appear, open up and start looking around before vanishing again.

The newer design. I like that there's Yooka's head spike things instead of just googly eyes.

New design looks awesome. The lack of chameleon features on the old one would've driven me mad eventually.

I prefer the new logo, Yooka is better represented in it than he is in the old logo (more in line with how Laylee is represented in the logo), and I like that the thickness of the lines in the letters skews rather than being evenly thick like in the old logo, makes the new logo seem a bit more playful.

I prefer the new one as well. Only thing I liked about the old one was that it looked more "shinier" due to the brighter colors and the color gradient. Made me somehow more excited.

I have to be honest and say the spikes on the K bother me. Maybe if there were only two of them instead of three, it'd be more pleasing to my eye. I do like the outline of the newer logo better, and agree with the gradient appeal of the first logo. But I do like the darker colors of the second logo. So I guess I really like elements of both.
